    Calssic witty/Amusing Player Nicknames


    1 Not allowed!
    PAFC fan in peace here...good to see you get off the mark...most of us down here still remember the support we got from you guys in the dark days of Admin.

    So whilst completely bored on holiday I started thinking about all the weird and amusing nicknames we have had for various Plymouth players....plus how many clubs have common themes...we all have a Psycho, many of us have a Beast , Animal or Trigger in our history

    But it also reminded me of the funny and unusual ones and I figured most clubs have some ....so what are the Brighton ones?

    I particularly like One Size for Fitz Hall, and from Rugby union Nobody for John Eales ( because Nobodys's perfect!) and "Live fast" Dai Young!!

    There's also a rugby player ( Aussie or All black) nicknamed Anthem because the player he understudies means he only gets on the pitch for the playing of the National Anthems..cruel but funny.

    Cheers and lets hope we can catch you up one day!

      I'm not familiar with West Country dialect. What does "Calssic" mean?

      Kiki Musampa, who used to play for Man City, was apparently known as Chris...

      Not sure the Albion have had a 'Trigger', but Joel Lynch was known as 'Denzil' due to a suggested likeness to the OFAH character of said name.

      Dan Harding, was known as (Mr) Tickle, due to his unaturally long arms

      Dean Wilkins was known as Wendy, which he apparently hated.

      Richie Barker, during his brief time with us, was known as The Bear.

      And my Dad has always referred to Gerry Ryan as Welly Boots, though I don't know if that was a common thing at the Goldstone... or just him!
      When Steve McQueen met The Blob, he tried to kill it. It probably never crossed his mind to try and take it out to a restaurant.
