Marcus Bent had a few clubs?

Are you lot psychic? Equal third on the list I consulted.

You're peppering shots onto bar and post, but you haven't beaten me yet.

Based on needing to have played for 22 years I thought keeper, John Burridge of West Ham in the prem, but he must have "played" for loads of clubs.  He was in his 40's when he retired.

He may even had made a Stanley Matthews stab at being in his 50's?

Gabbiadini?

A measly 11.

Our winner won the Anglo-Italian cup in 1971 and the League Cup in 1977!

We have a winner. Debuted for Workington in 1967, played for Man City in the Prem in 1994-95, making him the Prem's oldest player, at 43. Nicknamed Budgie (as was also the Banshees drummer). Retired in 1997 as player-manager of Blyth Spartans.

Your prize is +1 karma point from me and the grudging admiration of the TEF masses.

Never would have got that, mostly before my time really.  Good game though.

Ah yes. So that's why we never did one of these before.

Has top flight English football been played on Christmas Eve before? I seem to remember it happening in the last 20 years. My Dad thinks not.

Oddly, I'm not sure we've ever had one of these, have we? OK, here's one to kick it off:

My boy just asked me who's played for the most clubs, so I asked the internet. Now the answer might not be definitive across world football at all levels, and it does carry the rider that while he was on the books of 29 clubs, he only actually turned out for 20. He only ever played in England and Scotland.

Without looking it up, can anyone tell me who it is?

Jefferson Louis has 37 clubs...

Found my own answer!

"The last Premier League game to take place on Christmas Eve was in 1995, when Leeds beat Manchester United 3-1."
