Spot The Ballers: Who Did This Gruesome Twosome Grow Up To Be?

By Chris Wright

Who dese l’il blighters, eh? One thing we know for sure, the wee chap on the right sure don’t like having his photo taken (answer at the bottom, so scroll down with great care young Padawan)…

It be Mini-Mikel Arteta and Mini-Xabi Alonso! Reebok Pumps. Wow.

(Thanks to Pies fan @D_NS for the nudge!)

    Remember a while back reading the grew up in the same youth team or something.

  5. Wilma says:

    I was right!! Well, it looked like Arteta and they both started at Sociedad.

    Arteta and Alonso

  8. Your mom says:

    Which pennant X.Alonso is holding in his hands? FCN –> Football Club de Nantes (average team in L2). Am I wrong?

  9. Capt. Mok says:

    A coincidence that they are both wearing the home colours of their current respective clubs?

  10. Michael_D says:

    @Chris – that was my first thought: “wow, he’s rockin’ the Reebok Pumps”. All that was missing was Arteta wearing some British Knights or Kaepas

  11. Anonymous says:

    i knew that was arteta, but i did not think that other one to be xabi!

  12. Terry Shedingham says:

    @Capt. Mok
    Unless Xabi Alonso is off to Manchester City, then probably not.

    @Your mom
    Or FC Nurnberg?

  13. WildScotsman6 says:

    Got arteta right… thought the right one was Steve Gerrard.. haha! Couldn’t make the link as to how they ever played together tho…

  14. wolfinho says:

    obviously xabi is upset because his parents made him wear a coat with lavender lining. also, it would be a dream to watch these two play together now. wasn’t arsenal going after alonso a year or so ago? make this happen, universe!

  15. Francis says:

    Good spot, yeah it’s an FC Nantes pennant,home of chadian legend Japhet N’Doram. (remember him from champ manager 3?)
