Lee Bowyer and Scott Parker – seperated at birth?

The Times recently published “the Top 50 stats of 2007” compiled by their resident statto brainbox Bill Edgar – and the number one footballing statistic was how similar Lee Bowyer and Scott Parker are. Edgar writes:

“Both are London-born midfield players who have gained only brief recognition by England; both began their careers at Charlton Athletic and later played for Newcastle United before joining West Ham. And both played keepy-uppy in McDonald’s as teenagers: Parker with a football in an advert and Bowyer with some chairs, for which he was fined £4,500.”
