    How things have changed.....

    It made me smile how the names of footballers from the past:-
    Eddie Hapgood
    David Jack
    Charlie Jones
    Cliff Bastin
    Alex James
    Leslie Compton
    George Male
    Frank Moss
    Ray Bowden
    Wilf Copping
    Jack Crayston
    Ted Drake
    Alf Kirchen
    Reg Lewis
    George Swindin

    Differ from those of the future:-
    Zak Ansah
    Samir Bihmoutine
    Kyle Ebecilio
    Serge Gnabry
    Sead Hajrović
    Isaac Hayden
    Benik Afobe
    Jernade Meade
    Ignasi Miquel
    Elton Monteiro
    Sanchez Watt
    Jordan Wynter
    Nico Yennaris
    Chuba Akpom
    Brandon Ormonde-Ottewill

    There seems to be a distinct lack of 'traditional' names in football these days. Can you name a player who's name wouldn't have stood apart in the 1930's? I'll get the ball rolling...

    Jack Wilshere
