Lucas João Is 27!

Never realised he is 27.

Same age as Liam Moore! He is younger though.

Isn't that the age when legends die?

The thing with age is every year it goes up by 1. So if you're 26 this year for example, next year you'll be 27, the following year 28, the year after that 29 etc.

It's just a case of adding one to the previous number.

It is an indicator of how many years ago you were born.

However there are some countries where the rate of age goes up quicker than it does here in the UK, so it's posisble to have two different ages but I don't think that applies to our squad.

Where is the evidence for this? You can't just throw out wild theories without backing it up.

I can't find it now, but I'm sure I read this in an article in The Lancet twelve years ago. They had a graph of age v years since birth and it was pretty much a 1:1 straight line. Quite compelling.

Yet a horse can be one-year old two days after birth


And Chinese humans do age differently don't they?

This. Any intrepid reporters amongst us? Someone needs to get to the truth of this.

What evidence is there that they are actually 27 though? It might say they are but we need conclusive proof.

The Chinese are born aged 1 , which is tough on Chinese mothers and means Chinese 27 year olds are actually only 26.

I don't think there are any other players in the squad that are 27. Yiadom is 28, although his birthday is in December, so he's actually closer to 29.

What's the most popular age in the squad?

Of those to make an appearance this year and still with the squad, the mean is 23.44 (or 23.94 if assuming normally distributed birthdays), the median is 23 and the mode is 17, 18, 22, and 24.

When accounting for minutes played, the mean age is 24.3 (or 24.9 if assuming normal distribution blah blah blah).

The only football player I can be sure of most favouritist age is Adam Johnson's, at 15.

Are you sure it was 12 years ago we are quantifying what a year is at the moment

He's a lot nearer 29 than he is 28. That's a fact.
