i think clubs should look deeper into their history to find nicknames, rather than make one up from their name or badge design. I think they should b more interesting.


Good point Matthew!

(climbs back onto chair)

We could be The Martyrs though somebody else already has that nickname, can't think who at the moment. Other possibilities: The Romans... er, that's it I think <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> may add some more later...

What about, Rob...

The 'Saints'

Just one I came up with, off the top of my head.

The Martyrs is good. Who came first, us with the Saints (due to St. Alban and Rob the Saint) or Southampton (for God knows why).

Southampton presumably get it from St Mary's, their original name.

We were founded in 1908, so I'd hazard a guess as Southampton getting there first!

We were originally nicknamed the citizens.

I like Braintree's "The Iron", we all know what that's slang for!

Why did this thread reappear after a year anyway?

Banbury Town's nickname is The Gay Puritans. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> I kid you not! Though I think they may have dropped the Gay part recently. That's political correctness for you... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

One of the League Of Wales teams nicknames is The Black Dragons! Quality! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

And I'm definitely not ashamed of the unoriginal by highly appropriate E's.

The Shamen were obviously fans of Enfield.... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Merthyr Tydfil are the Martyrs (is 'Merthyr' Welsh for 'Martyr' or is the nickname just an anglicised version?)

Merthyr Tydfil can't claim England's first Christian martyr though, can they!?

What are the chances of you getting promotion then? Last I heard, you were up there with Slough and Northwood.

well....we're second and its in our own hands....just

six left to go and 12 more points will probably do it.....but...we all know the score...we'll take nothing for granted and keep going...there'll be a few twists and turns yet....look at the table....2,3,4,5 are all still in it for that second spot......we'll see....

maybe our 'patron saint' will look down upon us favourably.....!

Not totally convinced you can either, as England did not exist at the time of Alban's death.

Further, you should perhaps be more specific and claim the land later to be known as England's first known Christian martyr.

Sorry, but I do like an academic quibble. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Well, no, it's not quite as catchy I suppose. But accurate.

EFM Flamefast is actually the company in Manchester that make Gasguards, automatic saftey gas valve things that you put in school science laboratories.

Just thought you'd like to know.

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the Borough of Enfield have two E's - Enfield and Edmonton - before Edmonton FC dissappeared in the mid 1970's.
Picking original nicknames was obviously not on the agenda (ETFC = ET's or Townies or Towners).
And aren't Brimsdown Rovers called 'The Rovers'?
I take it Cockfosters are either Cocks or Fosters.

Regards

Peter (Nickname Pete)

Barnet = B(ee)'s

But why are Watford the Hornets? Not just because of the colours is it?
