You know how some football mad dads give their kids the name of an entire football team? Well Lynam Athletic of the Birmingham Coronation League Alliance Division 3 have done something similar – if Quirky News are to be believed – but instead of angry mum to placate there’s 17.
Each of the squad members has changed their name to that of a top footballer leaving a backline of Paulo Maldini, Cafu, John Terry and Fabio Cannavaro with Ruud van Nistelrooy up front.
Captain John Terry, 29, said: “We’re not in the best shape anyway as both Thierry and Ruud smoke about twenty a day and Gerrard is always half cut on a Sunday – nothing like their namesakes.”
Not sure if this has the ring of truth, as any fella who has to go into work on Monday and tell people he’s now to be know as Kaka surely wants more than a couple of spots in the tabloids and blogs. Even if he does work in IT.
