The AFC Wimbly Wombly team needs nicknames!



  • I'm a big fan of some of the nicknames that have already been suggested:

    Buckminster Fuller

    Lizzie Bennet (related to Other John Green or his female alternative universe self)

    Some Moore and Lots Moore, the only father-son duo in English football

    My contribution:

    Caroline Kennedy - she comes with her own song!

    P Sweeney - Peeny Sweeney

    S. Moore and L. Moore - Some Moore and Lots Moore, as said above

    B. Fuller - Buckminster Fuller, again fantastic (buckminsterfullerene a molecule described as "football" shaped)

    A. Bennett - Alan Bennett. Always gotta have a playwright on the team

    J. Midson impossible, and his song could be:

    J J J Midson,
    J J J Midson,
    Scored a goal,
    Scored a goal,
    We love J J J Midson!

    To the tune of the mission impossible theme, or something like that!

    A. Worner's (the keeper) real name could be Arther Worner then we could call him Arthur "Arthworm" Worner. A. Frampton's (lot of As on the Wimbly-Womblies (is a sentence which requires a ton of context)) real name could be Arsenio Frampton and we could nickname him Arson because he's always on fire. B. Fuller could be Barry "Bonk" Fuller, known for his headers. The Moores could be twins Large and Small Moore who would be great friends with One Size Fitz Hall, who should be bought for the team. In fact the Moore's could have gotten into football because they were inspired by One Size Fitz Hall. (Great fanfic idea!) Then P. Sweeney could be Percy "Plain" Sweeney who doesn't care for fancy moves, he just kicks it in and doesn't screw around. Y. Bamba John has already named (Ya Ya Bamba). And it must be said, Leroy Williamson must be bought for the Wimbly Womblies. It's just not worth it if there's no chance that we can't hear John sing The Occasional Scorer's song. Speaking of which: "He is strong, he digs in, nothing can get past him, Arthworm Worner, Arthworm Worner" (Sung a bit slower than the traditional chant I hope, I'll post a video later), "He adds fuel, he is a fighter, he's eternally on fire, Arson Frampton, Arson Frampton", "His head is strong, his legs are long, he'll always have this song, Bonk Fuller, Bonk Fuller", "They are big they are small, they love One Size Fitz Hall, Large and Small Moore, Large and Small Moore" "He sticks, he kicks, he takes none of it, Plain Sweeney, Plain Sweeney" "He needs no song, nothing about him is wrong, Ya Ya Bamba, Ya Ya Bamba" (I'll demonstrate the songs later, right now I must record video but vote up if you like my ideas so far.

    It'll be up tomorrow. That is a promise.
    As promised: Hope you like them.

    I like these names you've made.  Here are a couple more to add in to the pile:
    Ross [Final Warning] Worner
    Barry [The Brushman] Fuller 
    Callum [Call me!] Kennedy  -- Former Swindon Towner
    Peter [Stinky Pete] Sweeney  -- wears same socks all season
    Andy [Alive comes] Frampton
    Alan [kiss me I'm Irish] Bennet  -- He's a Corker
    Georgie [Puddin' n Pie] Francomb
    Sammy [Sinister Moore]   --  he's a lefty
    Jack [Midgard Serpent] Midson   -- afraid to ask... but he scores a lot
    Luke [Lefty] Moore   -- we need Moore lefties
    Kevin [Whovian] Sainte-Luce   -- played for Cardiff City... His sighting of a blue box led him to join the Wimbly Womblies
    Charlie Sheringham  -- got nothing...
    George [Drunken] Porter
    Sebastian ["Say my name, Sebastian!"] Brown  -- His story never ends... so I hear.
    Rhys [Witherspoon] Weston
    Youssef/Youssouf [Express Youssef] Bamba

  • I can see "Sainte Luce" having a cheery demeaner and sheding light on situations. (Luce is light in Italian) far luce su is to shed light on so that could be in his song? Kaedon Sainte Luce could be his name and it'd be light saint light (kaedon= light in gaelic). Anyone like this idea have more detail to add because it feels like he's not finished but I hope I gave someone a place to start!
  • 1 R. Worner -- Worner Chilcott
    2 B. Fuller-- Berris Fueller
    3 C. Kennedy -- Lil Cal

    8 S. Moore -- Some Moore
    11 L. Moore -- Lots Moore
    32 Y. Bamba -- Any jokes about La Bamba are going to be hilarious.
  • Some suggestions:
    1 R. Worner - Worn In

  • 10 J. Midson - Mid-sized Midson

    I think we should repurpose One Size FItz-All song's to this:
    Not Big, Not Tall, 
    He's neither short nor small,
    He's a Midson,
    Mid-size Midson
    (Could also be mid-field midson - because I believe he is a midfielder)
  • un_beknownstun_beknownst Posts: 55 ✭✭
    (Could also be mid-field midson - because I believe he is a midfielder)
    He's a striker who sometimes moonlights as an attacking midfielder.
  • (Could also be mid-field midson - because I believe he is a midfielder)

    Ah, yes that clears it up, thanks.

    Sweeneys song must be "He wears an itsy bitsy teeny Sweeny bright blue polka dot bikini and he scored for the first time today"
  • Cole "Goal" Porter.

    And here's the song from my mind's ear...

    mobiusstripsteak:  where math meets meat (context is everything).
  • C. Sheringham could be Sheringham And Cheese.
    R. Weston: East 'n' Weston.
    C. Kennedy could be C. Kennedy Score!

  • It's been mentioned by several people that the C. Sheringham could be something like "the Sheriff" of Sheringham (I think the Notiff or Sheringham has a nice ring to it too).  

    Backstory:  Known for his establishment-minded ways, Sheringham's anti-populist agenda makes him skeptical about many of the policies of the Wimbly Womblys.  Secretly, he would not be opposed to a takeover of AFC Wimbledon by someone of the ruling elite, instead of it being owned by citizens of Wimbledon.  He's even subtly hinted at another relocation to Milton Keynes, saying things like "I'm just not a fan of the tap water we have in Wimbledon.  More rural places, like Milton Keynes, have better tasting water."  Manager John Green suspects something is up with Sheringham's attitude toward the club, but brushes it off as a "conservative fad" in Sheringham's young age.
