    If you mean the longest & shortest names in the EPL, then i thought that the longest was Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink at Hull City?

    Does it count if they both happen to be the same person?

    I'm thinking our current manager during his second spell at the rags....

    You're on to something here. When Robson and Hughes were both in the United side during 1988-89 they held the record incoming and outgoing transfers.

    Bryan Robson was still utd's record transfer in at the time (£1.5m) Mark Hughes returned.

    Hughes was still their record outgoing at £1.8m when he returned to United.

    It's probably more common than we think. It's interesting though, especially as the only other one any of us have come up with involves Mark Hughes.

    Gleaned from info recently read -

    In 1904, trialist Harry Kay scored four goals in a reserve game, only to be arrested as a result of the subsequent publicity. It transpired that he was an army deserter
