An International team of Mendys

Recommended Posts

Chelsea's new Senegal keeper Edouard Mendy is the third with the surname in the English Premier League alongside Manchester City's Benjamin and Nampalys Mendy.

In fact, looking into it, it's possible to get an entire XI of Mendys playing top fight football in Europe - all with African heritage.

Even the BBC are at it now with lazy journalism.

 

When did our Papy join Man City? Hope we got a good fee and they've now loaned him back to us?

Bit of a daft article.... you could probably do a team full of Smith’s, Jones’s Thomas’s, Williams’s etc....

No where near to the same standard. There is an incredible number of mendys playing at a very high level at the moment. I'm struggling to even think of players with the names you've given Phil Jones, Ashley Williams hardly top players

Challenge: can you or anyone else name another XI all playing top flight football and all with the same surname?

Good few Pereira’s around in Premier League  and I’d say in Portugal Spain etc but too busy to go looking 😜😜

There's no goalkeeper sadly. Unless you count Joel Pereira who is on loan at huddersfield from Man Utd in which case you could probably get a team together to rival the mendys and silvas.

Without wanting to open a whole can of worms Mendy is quite surprising as something like Smith is a very common English surname so you’d hope there would be a few of them knocking around in an English league.  Same with the common surnames in the other European countries (E.g. Silva).

 

is Mendy a super common surname in Africa?  I have no idea.

Smith makes up just over 1% of the UK population where Silva makes up nearly 10% of Portugal and pereira only slightly less. That probably explains a lot. I have no idea on mendy though. 

 

Edit - Looking at this page Mendys prominence in football makes no sense at all https://forebears.io/surnames/mendy

Boring article. There’s enough going on around us and someone’s published this? 

Yet sufficiently interesting to make you open up the thread and post in it even though the thread title makes it obvious as to what it's about. :dunno:

 

It's just a bit of light hearted nonsense.

Was it entirely indicative of what it’s about though Davie? I’d argue not. Can’t believe people get paid for drivel like that, and even worse if people at home find it interesting 😴😴

You're not forced to read it.
