#10. Shay Given – Age 39


Shay Given seems to have been around forever. The goalkeeper began his career with Blackburn Rovers and made a number of loan moves before signing for Newcastle United. It was at the Magpies where Given made his name. The Irish keeper made over 350 appearances for the club in a 12 year spell before signing for the newly-rich Manchester City. Given stayed in Manchester for two years but lost his spot to current City and England number one, Joe Hart. Given spent time at Aston Villa and Middlesbrough before signing for Stoke City where he is currently the back up for number one, Jack Butland.
