What is this kts365 with a 1 season challenge? How novel.

As established in my last challenge, football has a family element to it. In this challenge we will explore the sons of former footballers.

You could add the Wright-Phillips brothers Shaun and Bradley.  

Totally forgot that they still played. USA right?

Yep, USA. Shaun is 36yo so could be his last FMM inclusion, and Bradley is 32yo.

I think Rob Lee has two sons that play for Luton. Heard about it when Newcastle played them in the cup.

Me and @Ashez created a Sons XI a couple of years ago. From that list there's Liam Rosenior, Sergio Busquets, Diego Poyet, and the dos Santos brothers are sons of Zizinho.

Nice challenge :)

Sounds cool. In a side note I always like to tell people that prodigal means wasteful. Mostly because I’m a pedant but also because people seem to think it means someone who has returned home. You could maybe have a second league table with the worst performing hence prodigal son. ?
