anyone with eyes can see this is a old man

I have a teenage son who is big for there age size 10 feet ECt but this man is about 40 I think someone is taking the piss here

To think there passing him off as a 17 year old is grinconfused

what the hell?! he doesn't look remotely youthful

Well, it is a bit controversial, but I think bone density tests can be carried out to ascertain the age of someone who doesn't know their date of birth.

ScrabbleBabble Thu 13-Feb-14 18:11:58

yabu - maybe that's just how he looks? Surely there must be some medical way of age testing him so everyone will know for definite.

Something like dentistry? or is that just for horses??

Scrabble I don't think there is I know SS have terrible trouble here when asylum seekers claim there 16 when they clearly look 26 I think all they can do is a questioner

Surely all this man boy would have to do is show his documents to put this to bed.

He's almost certainly not 17 from the look of him, but not necessarily 40s. He may not know himself.

It's not uncommon. My Nigerian ex and his friends told me a Nigerian player who did v well in the Prema few years ago was at least 15 years older than his declared age. Either that, or he'd been playing in adult football teams on Nigerian TV since the age of about 10. They all remembered him, it was a national delight that he'd pulled the wool over the eyes of the English FA. And he wasn't the only one.

He has shown his documents though

trampstamp Thu 13-Feb-14 18:19:44

Oh says he's not sure ds thinks it's a old man

I think in one picture he looks young but the first couple of pictures he really really looks older than me

Works both ways I suppose.

This fine-looking fifty year old was carded last year:

But my think is if he can play and he's not 17 why not just join the senior teamconfused

Depends how much you have paid for your documents as to whether they stand up to scrutiny.
If he pid well, his will prove he's 17.

Led

That man looks over 18 he's looks about 26 there is no way I would think that man is under 18

Ledaire Thu 13-Feb-14 18:29:55

That's true. Not under twenty five even.

BeeMyBaby Thu 13-Feb-14 18:33:55

He looks like a 17 year old if you compare him to the likes of teenagers in American teen dramas (in buffy I think cordelia was about 30)

Innogen Thu 13-Feb-14 18:42:43

I can believe he is a teenager. I've seen some very old looking ones.

I swear there was a 40 year old woman in school uniform this morning on the bus!

DCexpat Thu 13-Feb-14 19:22:52

I think its just the lighting make him look older in some of the pictures.

Skivvywoman Thu 13-Feb-14 20:08:32

My boys have been raving about this player and how old he looks but then I reminded them of a player who ds1 played with this boy looked older than DH!

ISeeYouShiverWithAntici Thu 13-Feb-14 20:52:36

Bollocks is he 17.
There is not a chance in hell he is under 30.

MeepMeepVrooooom Thu 13-Feb-14 21:00:32

Ooooh the 50 year old is pretty fit grin

SaucyJack Thu 13-Feb-14 21:04:12

Damn fine specimen.
