Rivalry/Nicknames Empty Rivalry/Nicknames

Hi

I have an interest in the creative nicknames clubs fans come up with for their rivals and their players...


Most clubs have a historic Psycho, Trigger , but in talking with other fans I have found some amazing ones including Ironing Board, Split Pin, two metre Peter and El Asparagus.

Love to hear any Bath relevent ones.

Yours in Sport


Peter

Mike Whitehouse - 60s defender - Crunch - opponents on the end of some of his tackles probably came up with the nickname
Charlie Fleming - Cannonball - reputed to have the hardest shot of his time
Dave Palmer - Whoosh - swept long crosses from near half way line
Graham Withey - Sting - looked like the singer
Dave Mehew - Boris - looked like the tennis player
Dave Fordham - Spider - long legs

Yeovile Town - Green Slime

Mike Thresher, a fullback in the mid sixties, didn't need a nickname as his real name perfectly described the way he scythed down opposing wingers. The City side one of those seasons also included "Crunch" Whitehouse and Ian McFarlane and must have been one of the toughest defences we have ever had.

David Adekola - Pepsi
Scott Partridge - Water Boatman - after his performance that night on the Maidenhead swamp
Jimmy Benefield - Frodo - looked like the Hobbit character
Martin Paul - Birdy - didn’t a flock of birds follow him around a Rovers training session?
Jimmy Cox - Twinkle Toes - known for his blinding pace - I used the name to wind up Tiger Roar as Cox joined from Glos.
Paul Randall - Punky
Eric Redrobe - Big Red - he was huge
Martin Rogers - Dodge

I think it ironic that since leaving Yeovil he has made a career as a goalkeeping coach and is apparently currently doing it with the England under 18 team.

City's mid-90s midfielder Eston Chiverton was always known in our house as 'Everton Chelsea'.
