When i was younger i could only remember how to spell some footballer's names by literally shouting them inside my head as they were spelt. S-C-H-M-E-I-CHEL. S-R-N-I-CEK. EHI-OGU. This post won't make a great deal of sense, but i was always quite fond of Ehiogu for that. I wonder if there have been many other footballers whose names were 2/3 vowells.
Seemed a solid pro, and on his day a fine player. We should probably judge sportspeople more on their human qualities, professionalism and ability, and on...other stuff less. Ehiogu, i'd bet, would score quite highly on those things in anyone's book.
