  1. England only? If not what about the artist formerly known as Colin Kazim-Richards? Though he has a new name now I believe, Kazim Kazim?

  2. paddy says:

    what is double barrelled :S ???

    right and left footed?

  3. mareantheone says:

    what is that on Nigel Reo-Coker’s chest?

  4. Chris says:

    Probably the only Top 10 list SWP will get on this year

  5. dave says:

    i’m wondering the same thing as paddy. if it weren’t for gary taylor-fletcher, it would seem that double-barreled means black.

    as for the spot on his reo-coker’s chest, i’m also curious about that. seems like villa players get that on their shirts a lot, or at least ashley young does. sweat maybe?

  6. frank says:

    ‘Double barrelled’ is a family name in two spanner

  7. Chris says:

    @mareantheone + dave – I think its Vicks or something like that, to help the poor lambs breathe better

  8. Ollie Irish says:

    @ Chris – Yeah, it’s a decongestant vapor rub thing

  9. shrewintelford says:

    What about the highly under-rated Aussie having a blinding season in League 2 – Shane Cansdell Sherriff at Shrewsbury Town??

  10. Gary says:

    Shirley the wonderfully named Troy Archibald-Henville at Exeter City should be in there :)

  11. Ollie Irish says:

    @ Gary – Ah, I decided to have an Argyle player in there instead ;)

  12. trstra says:

    Jose Manuel Reina
    Juan Manuel Mata
    John Obi Mikel???
    Klaas-Jan Huntelaar?
    Morten Gamst Pedersen

  13. Montesquieu says:

    Vicks Vapor Rub, like said lets players breathe better. Ruins the fabric though, cunts.

  14. pmcevoy says:

    @trstra 8.25 pm

    those are all the players first names you noob

  15. Tom Jones says:

    @pmcevoy Gamst is a surname you boon.

  16. dave says:

    @frank: thanks for explaining that, although i could do without being called a spanner. wasn’t exactly obvious. maybe it’s a culture gap, but i would have called it “top 10 footballers with hyphenated names.” is double-barrelled a common term for that in the UK?

  17. DJ says:

    Your scraping the double barrell with this top 10

  18. David Macbeth says:

    Good to see Abdulai Bell-Baggie on the list, or Bilbo Baggins as we called him when he was on loan at Vale! Troy Archibald-Henville and Shane Cansdell-Sherriff should definately be in there ,along with another former Vale stalwart Marc Bridge-Wilkinson.

    Maybe we could see a double barrel first name list with the likes of Trond-Egil Soldvedt and Jay-Jay Ockocha on there!

  19. Luke the Goose says:

    Gary Taylor-Fletcher, what a hero! Would definitley captain any double barrelled team.

  20. Mace says:

    You kinda answered yourself as to why they aren’t there.. Only one IS double barrelled. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
    As for other double barrelled names (and he’s white. And Scottish. As far as I’m aware the only double barrelled name to represent Scotland) there’s Craig Mackail-Smith at Peterborough.
