Millonarios = Millonaires, they signed some of the best players in the world in the 1940s, like Di Stefano

I thought the name came from the fact that they are based in Mentellin ...and they are trading some expensive staff down there... looks like i was wrong.

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.

Then you'd love "Associação Desportiva Cultural e de Recreio da Juventude de Pedras Salgadas" (portuguese club). Standing for "Association of Sport, Culture and Recreation of the Youth of Pedras Salgadas". :)

I know it was a joke, but Millonarios are from Bogotá, not from Medellín.

I've heard of Joe Public IRL. They beat the New England Revolution (TFC's bogey team) in the CONCACAF Champions League. Destroyed them. They're no ordinary Joe! :D

whilst we are on the subject of teams; could someone tell me why we have UCD (University College Dublin) and DCU (Dublin City University), wouldn't the teams be better off if they merged and secondly, which team is better?

And a funny name i always remember is the former home of Young Boys which is the Wankdorf Stadium http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wankdorf_Stadium :D

Ha. American universities have something similar. Can someone tell me why do universities in America have 'State' in them? Seriously, Canadian universities don't have 'province' in them. Is it really necessary to have a University of Michigan and a Michigan State University...

I suppose you know though that Clube dos XXX is named like this because in the past it only accepted players who were over-30 years old.

It's not like if it was a porn team. :D

The more universities the better surely. Apparently the first one was founded before Michigan became a state while the 2nd one was founded after it became a state.

Can't beat T&T's House of Dread.

Damn - you got there first. By far and away my favourite. Can't work out if they're a team of voodoo zombies, or stoned Rastafarians :D

[T&T = Trinidad and Tobago btw]

Defence Force (Trinidad)

Sugar Boys (British Virgin Isles)

Sexdrega (Sweden)

Thai Police (Thailand)

Cockhill (Ireland)

Cockburn City (Australia)

Wankie (Zimbabwe)

They're all in the database, whether any of them are playable or not I don't know.

My favourite of them being Cockburn City, I'm sure its a lovely place, but I won't be visiting anytime soon!

It is a lovely place but unfortunately is full of cocks
