Premiership players are going to extreme lengths to "bag" a spot in the new football version of favourite children's boardgame, "Guess Who?", desperate to have their celeb-faces appearing on the flip-down playing pieces.
The game is under development by OB Games Ltd, who are looking to devise a varied line up of distintive faces to act as game cards. Footballers from across the premiership are scrabbling over themselves to take part.
For the uninitiated, the game involves deducing which person card your opponent holds in their hand by pointing out distinctive features:

Candidates keen to appear are:

- David James (Elvis looky-likey, Hitler looky-likey, Cameron Diaz looky likey, depending on the week)

- Robbie Savage (lady, blond hair)

- Freddy Ljungberg (baldy bloke)

- Paul Scholes (glasses, Ginger hair)

- Wayne Rooney (pug faced ug-monster, hat)

- Djibril Cisse (blonde, stupid facial hair)

- Craig Bellamy (twat)

David James is making every effort to appear more than once on the board by wearing a different wig every week. His secret stash of wigs was discovered "in the closet" at the Portsmouth FC dressing room.
The Onion Bag hopes that the new game will be in the shops before Christmas 2007, by which times all the players will have retired or moved abroad so they'll have to start all over again. Their next project is "The Championship Buckaroo", or something.
