This occurred to me when listening to a US sports podcast and one of the hosts ripping another for calling a Patriots player 'Danny' as opposed to 'Amendola' or 'Danny Amendola'.

The other defended it by saying that is just how he is known among the fan base - Danny.

So which players over the years have we, as a fan base, known by their first name?

I guess Stanley (Collymore) and Freddy (Eastwood) leap immediately to mind.

Any others?

Always referred to Mark Phillips as Mark when shouting. Didn’t feel right shouting Phillips...

I have been to a lot of games and the crowds often shout the name of players. It always seem to start with the letter C. :blush:

Not quite this, but it always strikes me as strange that whenever I am listening to commentary on a match involving Real Madrid or Germany, the commentator will almost ALWAYS refer to Toni Kroos as Toni Kroos, and not just Kroos.
