Let’s Do This Season’s Teamgroup in an Unusual Location – the All-time Winners?

Thanks go out to Kenneth McMahon for trawling up this outrageous treasure trove of overly ambitious/imaginative/shite teamgroups from a dark, hidden corner of one of our own very favourite footy websites, the surreally marvellous NASLjerseys.com.

See how many one-time contenders and also-rans you can spot here, long exiled from the English game due to dodgy knees which miraculously perked up given an extended promise of the easy life, scantily-clad cheerleaders and enthusiastic fannies packed into futuristic kickerdome bleachers… while the dream lasted.

It’s the Seattle Sounders by a big ornamental pond – starring Roger Davies, Alan Hudson, boss Alan Hinton…!
The Atlanta Chiefs by a mountain engraving of four blokes riding a horse – starring Brian Alderson!
Houston Hurricane and jumbo jet – starring ex-Stokie Stewart Jump and Lisbon Lion Bobby Lennox!

More imaginative teamgroups which must have seemed like a good idea at the time:

1 – The original and still slightly alarming Harry Redknapp’s Bomo and the end of the pier, and more…
2 – Including the all-time classic Welsh welcome in the sheep-strewn hillside, and more…
3 – Including Oxford’s day trip to Blenheim Palace, Celtic in an airing cupboard and more…
4 – South Americans Special, inc. Peruvian censorship scandal, superimposed El Salvadorians and more…
5 – Surely the best best ever, including a crocodile in a shopping mall with Eric Cantona and a Lada.
6 – Antique weirdness in Brighton and Lanark, featuring a dog in a cornfield.

Tons more irresistible old tat in ‘Got, Not Got’ available here for just £12.99, post free. Shortlisted for Best Football Book at the BSBA Awards at top people’s hotel The Savoy next Monday…

  1. Seattle Sounders! Excuse me, but Kenny Hibbitt (3), Steve Daley (10) – no way a number 10 but never mind; Roy Greaves (6) and I want to say Nicky Reid, Peter Ward and Wee Willie Krankie too, but I wont just in case.

  2. and Ray Evans! And my Uncle Fred!

    Coh, whatever happened to Peter Ward?
