What's in a name

Poor old Fenerbahce were completely stuffed in the Champions League the other night and finished at the bottom of the table. Better than a couple of years ago when they didn't manage to get a single point in the group stage... but still.

The reason why I'm writing this little report is to share a very interesting line I read from a Reuters story in the Turkish Daily News today on another Champions League match.

"Unbeaten French side Olympique Lyon confirmed their staus as group winners with a 2-1 win over Rosenborg Trondheim thanks to a stoppage-time strike from another Brazillian, Fred."

Now I can take having to describe people like Pele, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho etc by just one name but Fred doesn't have quite the same ring to it Im afraid.


  1. Fred's not bad. If you were a Brazilian, you'd be called Oz!
