Exotic Football Results

I sometimes feel sorry for the rest of the world that enjoys watching Premier League football live on tv, but has to do so in the early morning or the middle of the night because of the time difference.

But if England has the most exciting football league in the world, we lag behind somewhat in our team names. Apart from a few  uniteds. cities and plain FCs, albion, athletic, rangers and rovers is about as exciting the names get.

We should take a lead from other countries that set the bar high when it comes to really interesting team names.

Alex Constantinou has scoured the globe for the finest examples and yesterday came the results from the World’s Most Exotic League read by the inimitable James Alexander Gordon pictured above:

    Bangkok Glass were mentioned in the “exotic” results reading. I saw them five times. Basically, the club was formed at the glassworks near Rangsit in Northern Bangkok… Ideas for some down-at-heel Lancashire clubs to boost ticket sales – Rochdale Lacy Thongs, Oldham Pierced Nipples, Accrington Ripe Bananas and Preston Masked Rapists… I can hear the chanting now!

    I was not much of a football fun until Philippine team made it on an invitational game then the one time past time game in the province became a hit, then many Filipinos had loved football. Some of the best players come from England from a Filipino-English descent blood. I had love football after that first game. Anyway there is no much time difference since they only play with other Asian countries which has the same time zone as hours.
