Friday List of Little or No Consequence #173

Once upon a time, there was a football blogsite called 'Some People Are On The Pitch' and on it there ran a weekly feature called 'The Friday List of Little or No Consequence'. For over three years, it provided a light-hearted oasis of calm in a football world gone mad, and it did so by generating countless interesting, pointless, but above all enlightening facts.

When came to an end in July 2010, so too did the Friday Lists, but here at Football Fairground we won't let a good feature die. To that end, we're proud to bring you the first in a new selection of Friday Lists, and as was always the case, we invite you to contact us if you have any ideas for future lists.

With that all dealt with, let's carry on from where we left off...
