    I just feel like someone needs the nickname of The Doctor
    We could be a story in the morning, but we’ll be a legend tonight.

    1 R. Worner - Haha, yeah, WornerChilcot

    3 C. Kennedy -
    4 P. Sweeney - Sweeney Todd will cut through their defense
    5 A. Frampton -
    6 A. Bennett - I have to agree with the Lizzie Bennett suggestions (Or could be a relative of Other John Green nee Bennett... Brother? Cousin? Ex-Husband?)
    7 G. Francomb -
    8 S. Moore - I like the formerly-conjoined twins idea, but I think the nicknames should be Small Moore or Smile Moore...
    10 J. Midson - Jack-Be-Nimble Midson
    11 L. Moore - ...and Large Moore or Laugh Moore
    16 K. Sainte-Luce - The Saint of Soccer (...or Football)
    18 C. Sheringham - Gotta agree with Honey-Baked Sheringham

    Because C. Kennedy is a deffender I though this song might work.

    See Kennedy he's back from the dead,

    Even though he was shot in the head.

    Look at him as he plays today,

    To block any shot that goes astray.

    Post Script,

    I am referring to John F. Kennedy

    2: R. Weston - Catch Phrase you can We can Rest well with Weston

    3: Instead of saying Aw Frack when A Frampton Scores just say, Aw Frampton

    4: Nickname for R. Worner. Rough and Worner.

    5: Song for B. Fuller,

    Be Fuller in life,

    Be Fuller in Play,

    B. Fuller has now scored today!

    6: Nick names for the Moore's S. Moore - Small Moore. L. Moore - Large Moore. AKA for both of them - The Twins!

    Some of these are that good though.

    OK, here are my suggestions:

    2 - messyhair42 is spot on: Berris Fuller (pronounced "fuel-er")

    3 - I love jbramson's idea--JFK faked his death to become Con F Kennedy. YES.

    4 - Clearly, P. Sweeny needs to be something related to Sweeny Todd. We haven't seen what he looks like yet, but if he's attractive, he could be Sweeny Bodd.

    8 & 11 - Again, jbramson has an amazing idea--S. and L. Moore are "formerly-conjoined twins who underwent a dangerous and controversial surgery in order to improve their football." This is especially appropriate since conjoined twins are one of John's areas of expertise. I don't know about nicknames but that's an amazing story.

    16 - K Saint-Luce should be Saint Lucy, of course. That could lead to all sorts of great jokes about him restoring sight, seeing clearly, or even blinding the other team (St Lucy is the patron saint of eyes and vision).

    24 - Kanye Weston -- he's a GOALdigger GET IT?! He scores harder/better/faster/stronger!!!

    Ugh so excited for all of this. Good luck to the Wimbly Womblys, no matter which nicknames they end up with!

    PLEASE! If there are nerds, the line up should make homage to the Monty Python's "International Football" sketch! 


    DEF: Kant - Hegel - Schopenhauer - Schelling

    DF-MID: Beckenbauer

    MID: Jasper - Schlegel - Wittgenstein

    FW: Nietzsche - Heidegger

    Marx substitutes Wittgenstein in midfield. I guess he would be left winger

    32 Y. Bamba - Bambi

    Red Worner Red Worner (like red rover)
    S. Moore should totally be S'moore

    Also I like the idea of "Glass half Fuller"
    Or he could be called simply, "Be Fuller" or "Be more Fuller" *shrugs* idk

    Also if we called the Goalie Red Worner the song could be "Red Worner, Red Worner, no, you can't send a goal right over" Or something along that line

    P. Todd Sweeney - 'The Demon Barber of Wimbledon' (He runs a barber shop on the side) or 'The Demon Footballer of Wimbledon.'

    Lord Sheringham - He's a character in Georgette Heyer's popular Regency Romance novel Friday's Child. And John has stated in these videos that he likes Regency Romance novels.

    I agree that it's time to find a female player. Either find a player on the current squad who looks female-ish, or this guy made an entire team of women FIFA players by finding in-game players who look like women - we could sign one of them:
