Re-brand a football club – f*!k yes

Today, Hull (owner Assem Allam) announced that they were rebranding the club “Hull City Tigers” and it struck me we could have some fun here.
I love the fact that he says “… City is irrelevant. My dislike for the word ‘City’ is because it is common….It is about identity. City is a lousy identity”. So true, take note Small Heath. Wait a minute, there’s a rebrand option for the scum already, Scum City – there’s another one.
He goes on “City is also associated with Leicester, Bristol, Manchester and many other clubs. I don’t like being like everyone else. I want the club to be special”. Well you can’t get more special than Aston Villa, totally unique with history that should never be wiped away by some marketing guru.
So what new club names might we have for clubs out there? The more derogatory the better.
Arsenal – No Where to Fucking Park FC
Liverpool – Job Centre Plus
Sunderland – Mussolini’s SS
West Ham – Ann Summers 11
I’m sure there is better out there. Let’s have some fun.

    Typical pre-season friendly, no high tempo and several things have to improve. What would we do without Benteke. Don´t want to think about it. New acquisitions: Okore needs more games to improve understanding with our defence, Luna looks encouraging in going forward, Tonev shows some good signs but has to stop shooting from 40yds and has to improve his corners (overhit to many). Was surprised that Westwood didn´t start, would give him a starting place anytime.
    First 3 games will be really though, would be satisfied with 2-3 pts from these game.

    I liked the look of Helenius too, he made some very smart passes and could be a good substitute late on in the game when one of the forwards starts to lag. Wiemann didn’t seem to get into the game today, were he firing on all cylinders I suspect the score would have been higher. I would start with Westwood in midfield rather than El Ahmadi, possibly with Sylla rather than Delph, although I do like Delph and can see us playing more games with those three in the middle (Sylla, Westwood, Delph). Vlaar looked good though, I think this partnership with Okore is going to work and Luna is looking like a very good signing.

    Not sure if Sylla will start next week.. Don’t think he’s come on in the last two friendlies..

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
