Hyphenated Players

Post by Poshay » 16 Apr 2019, 19:00

Once only Toffs had double barrelled names ; now they seem quite commonplace. We could assemble a reasonable team from double barrelled players in the Premier :

Defenders (4)
Trent Alexander Arnold (Liverpool), Kyle Walker-Peters (Spurs), Tim Fosu-Mensa (Man U)(NL), Cameron Carter Vickers (Spurs)
Midfield (4)
Reuben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea) ,Ainsley Maitland Niles (Arsenal), Morgan Gibbs-White (Wolves),Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (Cardiff)
Forwards (2)
Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea), Alex Oxlaid Chamberlain (Liverpool)
Bench : James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Bobby DeCordova -Reid (Cardiff)

We are just short of a goalie. Any ideas? Any others in the lower leagues that could be added?

Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers, is a Canadian former professional ice hockey goalie who played in the National Hockey League.
I only know because my American son-in-law is mad keen on ice hockey.
If no-one comes up with a better player I'm sure Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers would keep goal quite well.

And all but Fosu-Mensa and de Gea- Quintana I believe are England qualified. All we need for an England team is an England qualified goal keeper.

It's his Christian name, but how about Shwan-Saman Jalal? Ex Posh, and although he was born in Iraq, he did play for England C.

Can we still use the term "Christian name" in this case?

The answer to that is a big fat NO.
First name or forename is correct.
We go again...

Good question.
In practice we tend to use the term christian name for first name even if the person is not a Christian.
Everybody knows we mean first name.
Another example of political correctness gone mad.

One of our team, Trent Alexander-Arnold, played a blinder for Liverpool last night including making the winning goal by the cheekiest of corners.
