Last weekend Lennard Sowah made history by becoming the first player born after the Premier League began to play in the competition.
The 17-year-old German defender was born on August 23, 1992 – eight days after the Premier League started on August 15.
Believe it or not, there was a time before Sky rigged fixture lists for Super Sunday Showdowns, games kicked off at 3pm on a Saturday and transfer windows eased to a close without Jim White screaming, ‘UNBELIEVABLE, DANNY MURPHY HAS SIGNED FOR FULHAM!!!’
