Is it not, Go Ahead Eagles?

It is.

I think the Spanish clubs names are funny, simply because some of them are so long:

Espanyol is actually:

Racing Club Depordiu Espanyol De Barcelona S.A.D

That would be nine names, is there really any need?

I have no idea what "S.A.D" stands for, I can't find it online and even "The Textperts" were stumped. If anyone can tell me I'd worship you, as it's been bugging me for a long time.

There's one from Reunion, a French island in the Indian Ocean, that when the game uses its shortened version reads as Tampon :eek: - apparently they like to soak up a lot of pressure...........boom boom.

S.A.D.'s are privately owned clubs in Spain, i believe, as the norm there until recently was for the club to be owned by the 'fans'. That's why they have all the president electing business at Barca and Real, cos the 'fans' choose them every few years.

I can't remember what it stands for though.

Sociedad Anonima Deportiva, something like society limited sportive. Such long names are a licensing issue from spanish league.

Would be funny then if they played that Norwegian team:

Tonight's match!

"Real Club Deportiu Espanyol De Barcelona Sociedad Anonima Deportiva - Vs - Odd"

Odd indeed. :D

PS - Thanks for that, Zoiberg.

Not sure if they're in FM, but a Swaziland 2nd division team is called "Eleven Men in Flight" - a division which also features such teams as "Highway Never Die", "Swazi Candles" and "Young Zebras".

Yeah, totally agree - cracks me up every time!

If it wasn't such a familiar name then Arsenal would be hilarious, I reckon. Particularly as they are managed by someone called Arsene...

I love how if your typing in game on something like counterstrike and the server has a swear filter on you cant say Scunthorpe... I love how it has a hairdressers called "Pub ic Hairdressers" classic!

Went to see my ex in london and went through cockfosters, the whole train looked at me weirdly when I giggled

ABC = Argentina Brazil Chile

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ABC_countries

Thanks for telling me...:thup:

I wonder how you play a 'Coton Sport' team like they do in Cameroon....

I cant resist but...

Why would you play 'Young Boys' that would be an easy win, espescially as they are in a 'Wankdorf' -ed state... haha, I You could give 'em some 'Kiwi' and send em to 'Mars', might be to much for 'Olympians' especially as they all have 'YoungHeart'...

All those teams except for the 'Young Boys' are in Oceania
