Eight footballers who could star on Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is widely considered to be the most popular show on television, unless you’ve actually seen The Walking Dead of course. It’s a tale of wondrous fiction in which there are dragons, bearded men and a shitload of brutal deaths. So then, we thought it would be best to decipher which current and former footballers would fit in nicely with the GoT crowd.

When you really think about it, considering the size of some footballers these days there’s quite a few fellas who could’ve been included on this list. Alas, we could only select a few and these gents are head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to the qualifying criteria.

You can just picture it now. The eight noble steeds of the football kingdom marching north to Winterfell, and returning with the heads of their greatest foes presented proudly to their adoring public as a sign of victory. Or, on the other hand, they get absolutely twatted and hobble back with their tail between their legs. It’s all a matter of opinion, really.
