Best fantasy football team names

August 5, 2016 2:41 pm

Without further ado, here’s out top 20 fantasy football team names for 2016:

20) Kindergarten Klopp

It works on so many levels – it’s a play on the Arnie movie Kindergarten Cop, while also referencing Liverpool manager Klopp’s German heritage.

19) Moyes N The Hood

Another film reference which celebrates David Moyes’ return to the Premier League, like a gangsta.

18) Allardyce Lost

Now that Big Sam is no longer gracing top flight club football (having left the PL to take up the mantle as England manager), Allardyce Lost makes perfect sense.

17) Teenage Mutant Ninja Skrtels

Although the Slovakian centre-back is no longer at Liverpool (having recently completed a move to Fenerbahce) this one was too good to leave out.

16) Costa Fortune

Given Diego Costa’s annual salary at Chelsea, which is rumoured to be in excess of £8 million per annum, this is perhaps one of the more apt names in the list.

15) Dynamo Chicken Kiev

The classics never go out of style. Another new season, another new fantasy league with a team called Dynamo Chicken Kiev. Standard.

14) Pathetico Madrid

Like #15, this is another one which crops up year upon year – be quick though, you can guarantee thousands of like-minded people will try and register as Pathetico Madrid.

13) One Flew Over Lukaku’s Nest

It’s a classic novel about a free-spirited petty criminal combined with the name of a fast-moving Premier League striker – what’s not to love?

12) Men Behaving Chadli

If Spurs winger Nacer Chadli is in your team this season, let’s hope he doesn’t behave badly.

11) Ctrl+Alt_De Laet

Hopefully the Belgium international and Leicester City defender won’t be crashing this season after winning the Premiership last time around.

10) Wizard of Ozil

The Arsenal midfielder is certainly something of a wizard on the pitch, which is why we rate this name so highly.

09) Baines on Toast

Everton and England left-back Leighton Baines is the ‘sauce’ of inspiration for this food-based pun.

08) Lallana’s in Pyjamas

If the Liverpool and England attacking midfielder Adam Lallana is in your team, you’ll be hoping he isn’t too sleepy come match day.

07) Borussia Teeth

Another classic, this time based on poor personal hygiene. If you get too caught up in Fantasy iTeam you might need a gentle reminder to do your daily ablutions.

06) My Little Kone

At 5ft 11in Everton striker Arouna Kone is anything but little, but it’s too good a pun to miss out on.

05) 2 Girls 1 Schlupp

Ghanaian international and Leicester left-back Jeffrey Schlupp is unfortunate enough to bear the brunt of this pun. If you don’t get it, it’s probably best left unexplained.

04) Hakuna Juan Mata

It’s hard to get this earworm out of your head – it combines the Lion King classic tune with Manchester United superstar Juan Mata.

03) Pique Blinders

Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique might not be a premiership footballer, but combining his name with the cult BBC drama Peaky Blinders is too good to miss.

02) Goal of Duty

Why not combine the beautiful game with a game of war to create this unforgettable pun?

01) A Game of Throw-Ins

The HBO TV show Game of Thrones is hot property at the moment, so full props go to this for being culturally relevant and humorous at the same time.
