Real football fans support Me-Nan

Forget Arsenal, Chelsea or Manchester United, the most popular football team in the British Isles is Inter MENAN.

But we're not talking about old ladies enjoying a kick-about. The cheeky club name is the one adopted most often by the tens of thousands of players who enjoy a weekly competitive game with their mates.

Scores of small-sided teams are turning their backs on tradition and choosing hilarious handles in the hope it will inspire them to get pun over their rivals.

And a survey of more than 3,000 teams that turn out weekly to play in Soccer Sixes leagues nationwide has revealed full the extent of the naming craze.

The more inventive teams include: A Game Of Throw-Ins, Club Tropicana Drinks FC, Finding Neymar and AC A Little Silhouette Of Milan.

And variations of the most popular have been compiled into a Names Championship league table that has Bayern Neverlosen and Unathletico Madrid vying for top slot.

Six-a-side soccer is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. Soccer Sixes operate the UK’s largest network of FA-affiliated leagues, with more than 30,000 active players.

Ross Spacey, Soccer Sixes Managing Director, says: “Our players put a lot of time and effort into their team names. It’s a big thing for them.”

“Whether a name makes them play any better is debatable, but it always puts a smile on people’s faces.”

Six “fat man” footballers struggling United wish were playing right now

Under pressure Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal blasted a “fat man” journalist for criticising Wayne Rooney’s recent performances.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/embed/video/1243776.html

The Dutchman lost his cool in a press conference after watching his team draw 3-3 at Newcastle.

We’re pretty sure a few Soccer Sixes players are carrying a few extra pounds after the Christmas break. Fighting the flab is one good reason for turning out each week.

Last year Red legend Lou Macari accused Rooney himself of getting too fat. But being a proper porker doesn’t mean you can’t shine on the pitch.

With that in mind, here is a six-strong group of players that any team would be happy to field each week.

1. Southall

2. Puskas

3. Ronaldo

4. Maradona

5. Molby

6. Barnes

This team of legends may have eaten all the pies, but pound-for-pound we reckon they’re the best around.

If you think any of your teammates would fit in with our super-sized six, send your pictures to info@soccersixes.net.

The Joy of Six: Why we love 6-a-side football

At Soccer Sixes, we get football. That understanding comes from our love of all aspects of the beautiful game: the good, the bad and even the downright ugly.

Every game is different, but we also know that wherever and whenever you play, there are certain things that will always be true.

  1. Someone always gets hit in the face with a football. It never gets tired.
  2. An old guy in a bad tracksuit will turn up and teach everyone a lesson in skill.
  3. Someone will play wearing a vintage kit – it may even have fit them in the early 90s.
  4. You WILL be worried that you will be pants compared to everyone else on the pitch.
  5. Someone will get way too angry for no good reason. It’s usually the shortest player.
  6. You will kick a wall in frustration and pretend for the rest of the game that it didn’t hurt.

If you want to score a good deal for the Euros, get in quick

From 5pm on Saturday December 12th, football fans from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic will be frantically making travel plans for France.

The 24-team draw for the UEFA Euro 2016 championships will dictate which of the ten venues, from Lille to Lyon will play host to the home nations.

Unfortunately airline bosses will be watching the draw as closely as the most dedicated fans. Within seconds of a team being placed, the price of flights is going to jump.

So if you’re a gambler and are determined to bag a bargain, you should get in quick and book tickets before you know where your team will play.

Of course that could all go horribly wrong so, just for fun, why not try out this Euro 2016 Draw Simulator and predict where your favourites could be playing.

When we checked, England had to take on Russia, Wales were facing off against Belgium and Northern Ireland were drawn in the group of death against Germany, Croatia and Poland.

If only football and real life were as easy to predict.
