Which Premier League Footballer Are You?

king kenny Which Premier League Footballer Are You?

When you’re watching the Premier League, which footballer do you identify with the most? In life, are you a hard-nosed John Terry, a metrosexual David Bentley, a wear-your-heart-on-your-sleeve Steven Gerrard, or perhaps a John Carew who has a penchant for lap dances?

As a child, I identified with Kenny Dalglish when he played at Liverpool. One, I was pretty deadly in front of goal when playing at my local playground. Two, whenever I ran, I always got really red in the face as King Kenny did. And three, he had a similar haircut to mine at that time.

Of course, Dalglish never played in the Premier League, but if I had to pick one that I identify with the most, it would have to be Gareth Bale. He’s Welsh, like I am. He plays on the left wing, which is the position I played at during high school. He always tries hard and has a lot of potential as well as pace.

    I'd like to think Gael Clichy. He does the job effectively always with 100% but doesn't care about the credit.

    Based on actual football skill, looks and touch then I'm Dirk Kuyt.

  2. Weston says:

    I'd probably say Jamie O'Hara. I generally play left wing but spend a lot of time at RW and both outside backs. Not really flashy, just get by with speed, quick cuts and quick diagonal balls.

    I think I was a bit more of a bruiser in the back than O'hara is though ; )

  3. Blake says:

    Julian Dicks. I am a bit of a nutter.

  4. Dobeani says:

    I reckon i’m like Dirk Kuyt and Fabio Aurielio mixed into one. I do all the hard work off Kuyt and I just get my head down and get on with my job. But I play left back so I have some off the quiality off Aurielio and I have an absolutly quality free kick.
