Terminator Vidic, Drogba’s Pichs and Steve Bull – a quick study of the football player website

Simon Rice

etuhu 300x194 Terminator Vidic, Drogbas Pichs and Steve Bull   a quick study of the football player websiteFulham and Nigeria midfielder Dickson Etuhu has become the latest footballer to launch his own website.

Not a player of the greatest stature, so it’ll probably only appeal to fans of said teams – but it is rather flashy. You can check it out at www.dicksonetuhu.com.

Etuhu is by no means the first footballer to get in on the act. Many players are rather internet-savy nowadays – so much so the Dutch FA were forced to impose a ban on their players using Twitter during the World Cup.

But the beauty of the personal site is some of the bizarre information that can be found. I’ve picked out a couple of the quirkier sites here…

Bolo Zenden www.bzenden.eu

Not sure how many fans he has, but if you’re one of them, you can download a desktop wallpaper to let everyone around you know about it.

Didier Drogba www.didierdrogba.com

The best section on Didier’s site has to be ‘My Pichs’. The Chelsea striker lets you in on what’s been floating his boat, including, among other things, a restaurant suggestion. Unfortunately it hasn’t been updated in a while, but I’ll be sure to check back.

Diego Maradona www.diegomaradona.com

Still want more Diego post World Cup? Well this is the place to go, but you’ll need to speak Spanish to understand him – and even then you might find it difficult to work out what he’s talking about.

Namenja Vidic www.nemanjavidic.com

The Manchester United defender’s site looks like it’s from the mid-90s. But bear with me. It includes a video entitled Nemanja Vidic is The Terminator, in which clips of the defender are played over a Euro-pop/Terminator theme mash up and includes Vidic with red eyes.

Steve Bull www.bullybully.net

The beautiful thing about the internet is that everyone can get involved. Even Steve Bull. The former Wolve’s player has a beautifully named site called bullybully.net. Areas include Home (Is where the Bull is) and Shop (Get a bit of Bully) where you can buy signed limited edition prints of, er, Steve Bull.

    The Steve Bull site does, of course, promote him but it also mentions his favourite charities!
