David Seaman is obviously a leading contender for this Paddy after rocking a ridiculous ponytail and tash combo from 2000-2005. Despite being one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League era, Big Dave was constantly ridiculed for his bonkers barnet.
Legendary fashion guru Brian Clough famously said: “Seaman is a handsome young man but he spends too much time looking in his mirror rather than on the ball. You can’t keep goal with hair like that.”
Cheers Cloughie, exactly our point.
One man man who has had numerous bizarre haircuts is Djibril Cisse. After joining Liverpool in 2004, Premiership audiences have been treated to many crazy styles, from the bleached blond short cut, to the mohawk which strangely resembled a line of meatballs. There was also a red mohawk, and a doodle pattern from the top of his head through his beard. We could go on but there’s just far too many.
Barry Venison joined Newcastle in 1992 and showed fans the perfect way to pull off the mullet (Chris Waddle take note). The defender wowed fans at St James’, and later on at Southampton with his pristine locks. No doubt the girls were falling over themselves trying to run their hands through his luscious mane.
One man who didn’t initially struggle with silly hair was Wayne Rooney. That was until the Manchester United striker decided to transplant some of the hair off his arse and stick it on his spud-shaped head. Wazza is a front runner for this award with his new haircut which of late seems to be edging towards a classic combover.
The final nomination for the award is Jason Lee who treated the Premier League to his pineapple-inspired doo. After a torrent of abuse from the terraces and constant jibing from Baddiel and Skinner, Lee eventually took the hint and shaved it off.
You can have your say on whose haircut was the most bonkers and be in with a chance to win a share of 5k here.
