Didn't realise he's at Panathinaikos. That's a fairly strong level he's playing at in fairness.

It's far from the worst fall from grace.

Panathinaikos have been downsizing for the last few seasons. They finished fourth last season and are in that position now and a long way behind Olympiacos. He played in a team he helped  relegate from Series B last and wouldn't be surprised if the wages were comparable.

Manuel Pellegrini retired from football after being outjumped for a ball by a 17 year old Zamorano who subsequently scored. He later confessed regretting retiring seeing as Ivan was world class and he reckoned he had another few years in him.

I always assumed that the surname of former Real Madrid player and manager Luis Molowny was a mangled spelling of the more traditional Maloney or Moloney, but apparently Molowny was actually an Irish surname that died out a long time ago. Still a surprisingly common surname in parts of Spain.

Johannes Edvaldsson, who died not long back and was a cult hero at Celtic, was the son of an Estonian who was head of the Tallinn police during WW2 and fled to Iceland due to being suspected,  and likely guilty, of war crimes during the Nazi occupation.

Ryan Kent has a brother called Casper with an in interesting line in photography work in the world of Japanese erotica.

I just learned a plot about mannequins that come to life could be deemed ridiculous 
It would damage this forums' reputation
