Is it me or is there a lot more double-barreled surnames around in the game? Used to be a working class sport etc. etc

There used to be a lot more "scouse sounding" surnames in the game too! Especially at U18 level!

Personally I welcome the likes of names like Duke-McKenna, I feel it's long been a weakness in our set up – every England youth team has a couple of double-barrel names in it these days, I feel we've been missing out!

Not a great start for our U18s though... 3 defeats on the trot , early days though.

More double-barreled names probably due to increase in divorce and non-married couples.

The club should look into this. I mean the money we miss out on with fans paying for Gana and the likes is just absurd. There is no other reason Man Utd signed Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan. Yet we never seem to learn. Personally I blame Martinez for this lack of forsight

Matt - 'Is it me or is there a lot more double-barreled surnames around in the game? Used to be a working class sport etc. etc'

I have an idea (based on practically no evidence!) that the current batch of D-B names might actually be a (new) sign of real working class credentials.

Kind of like how Burberry used to be posh but then became the label of choice for meffs and scruff.


During the olympics, only because I am a huge fan of such events, I was watching the women's pentathlon or..heptathlon (or one of those wotsit-thons that involve incredible female specimens jumping around while basically wearing bra and knickers) and heard a commentator mention the name 'Katarina Johnson-Thompson'

Immediately, my mind processed the name and guessed..

"Posh...home counties...St Bunty's...blonde...thick but that'll never matter coz her family will be minted...good looking but in a dull, insipid, 'English rose' way..." etc blah.

But not at all, Katarina turned out to be a Scouser - mixed race, Liverpool Harriers, St Julies, Liverpool John Moores uni.

My guess(es) - the increase in D-B names is either the parents split and it's a (narked) case of "Well why should she 'ave your friggin' name?" or it's the Waynetta Slob answer to why she'd chosen 'Frogmella' as a name - 'Coz it's eggzotick.'

Who knows, five years from now, names like Frobisher Fotherington-Bushpeas could have tories absolutely baffled.

There could be notorious D-B Liverpool family names.

"Ah wouldn't drink in there lad, that's where the Spittford-Chumlies bevvy"

Oh and I can't hear 'double-barrel' without thinking of the second single I ever bought

Just clicked on the link. What a gem. Haven't heard it for donkeys. Needless to say got a serious bout of nostalgia, which led me to Montego Bay, Police and Thieves, etc... Ta!

Paul 8,
I also clicked on the link - what a throwback. Odd how the girls were pretty static stood next to Blackburn. I mean when Savile was presenting, they were forever jumping up and down, for some reason...
