    Ah now we're getting the rules halfway through. I'm not au fait with the rosters of every Premier League club and had a genuine OIHSP moment when he was mentioned on Radio 5 as the scorer.

    Noticed a sizeable amount of ex-Leicester players mentioned in this thread, which makes me think that Severn Trent are putting more than just fluoride in the water. I realised at the weekend that another, Jordan Stewart (35) is still turning out for Phoenix Rising in the second-tier USL, a full 4 years after he last played a game in England. Also there apparently are Didier Drogba, Shaun Wright Phillips and erm, Peter Ramage.

    Jason Price is gold dust though, I always loved him even playing for the Jacks. I'm sad to see he's left his previous club (according to wiki) Almondbury Woolpack, mind.

    Crouch is exactly the type of player I can picture still turning out for some mid-table League One team when he's 42.

    Ex Swansea, Hull and Doncaster man Jason Price, with a neat touch and finish for Harrogate Railway Athletic.

    I am 53 and played my first game of fives in 5 years last week. Amazingly, I wasn't the fattest, slowest or worst player on the park. Scored two, made three, managed to get around reasonably well and wasn't sick.

    Felt remarkably well afterwards also. I really enjoyed it, felt like I was 47 again!

    Played again last night and now feel broken. Stiff, sore and the place where I broke my leg (which caused my premature retirement) is throbbing. There were too many youngsters playing. Tweaked a hamstring too, may have to take a few weeks off...it's like the numbskulls were all out getting pissed last Tuesday leaving me on auto pilot, completely missed the fact that I'd played and forgot to press the pain buttons. They remembered this week.

    The one thing that I really noticed had gone was my spatial awareness. When I was playing regularly, I automatically knew where I was in relation to other players and to the goals. It meant if a player I was marking tried to shoot, it'd either hit me or miss. In goals, I never got beat at my near post.

    It was a bit better last night but still not right. I think that having this awareness is what keeps a lot of these older pros playing. They can't run as fast, don't have the same stamina but they still have the touch, can still pass and are aware of what's going on all around them. Put that together with huge experience and they can still do a job.

    I'm not saying I'm anywhere near that, just that the same principles apply. It's very sad that I appear to have lost it.

    The name Conor Powell wouldn't mean much to most of you but over the last ten years or so he was one of the bigger names in league of Ireland football. He played with Colchester United briefly and also in Norway as well as for Bohemians, Shamrock Rovers, Sligo and dundalk. He reappeared today in the cup for non league Portmarnock utd still only 31

    I'm still surprised that people are surprised by that Windsor kit, it's been knocking around doe three or four seasons now. I'm anxiously awaiting what they came up with next.

    Kenny Miller has continued to lead our line throughout preseason (he scored in the Europa League although we're not talking about that), he's 38 in December. He was born in the 1970s which means there is still a Rangers first team player born in the same decade as me.
    I'm not sure if this is the consensus from Gers fans, but as an outsider it seemed to me that Miller was by far your best player last season. He was outstanding in the win at Pittodrie.

    We've just re-signed Jamie Cureton for the fourth time in the last two seasons. He'll be 42 in August. Scored 15 in 23 for us last year.

    He played for Bury last season, apparently.

    Another signing that host Sky Sports' James Cooper could bring up at our pre-approved Q&As as he asks the chairman with a look that mixes disbelief and sycophancy, "How on earth did you manage to sign him, Stewart?"

    I think we should ban 30 year olds who are simply turning out for financially doped monstrosities like O'Hara from the thread.
