  1. SamHumphreys says:

    Krasnic is a good shout, pic and all!
    The Bentley/Becks pic matches nicely too

  2. Chris says:

    Oh my God have you seen Sandra Redknapp’s neck?
    Jesus do they both live in Chernobyl or something?

  3. Santi says:

    I find the Fabio/Rafael comparison a bit harsh.
    Fabio’s got Evra ahead of him, hence he’s not played as much.

  4. SamHumphreys says:

    It’s more of a joke than a jibe at his abilities really.
    It’s also unlucky that Fabio doesn’t play because I have read quotes from numerous people (Including rafael) that Fabio is the technically better one, and he’s right footed.

  5. juancullo says:

    Reports actually say that fabio is better dan rafael. he has had a lot of injury problems

  6. Ian says:

    How have you missed out Charlie Adam/Xavi?!

  7. Roger says:

    DeSilva twins is the only one I disagree, you also forgot Teo Walcot is a poor mans Aaron Lenin. And Chris Smalling is a poor mans Rio Ferdinand.

  8. James says:

    Roger – hahahahaha are you serious? Walcott has 10 goals from 12 starts this season, what has Lennon done!?

  9. greg says:

    spot on about Milos Krasic

  12. bradford says:

    roger – are you out of your freaking mind. i’m actually struggling to put this in words. walcott is far better than lennon. and he’s younger.

    i’d say lampard is a poor man’s nolan … at the moment(he is injured)

  13. CFC_Jay says:

    ……as good as he is (and he is good), Raphael Van der Vaart is certainly the poor mans Wesley Sneijder :) lol, Bradford……when Nolan bags 20+ goals a season for the next 5 years maybe then can you give that comparison….ha!!

  14. mizman says:

    Martin Skrtel very very poor mans Nemanja Vidic

  19. Tom Jones says:

    Some awful comparisions you’ve made there. Try compare similar players next time or at least players who play in the same position.
    Fidel Castro is a poor man’s Gerd Müller.

  20. yeeeeeeeah says:
