How sad that the mighty Dunfermline Athletic was noted as a pointless answer on the BBC quiz show tonight.

Yes, Hamilton Academical (singular) was also a pointless answer. One would hope that West Bromwich A(L) bion was also pointless since we gave them a good pummelling.

"Nooit opgeven altijd doorzetten, Aangenaam door vermaak en nuttig door ontspanning"

Rather bizarre name for a football team tho


"Never give up, always persevere, Pleasant through entertainment and useful through relaxation"

I`m guessing `NAC` fits better into a chant...

Which Scottish or English league team now has the shortest name? The answer used to be Bury but following their demise who has taken over that mantle?

Not sure what that has to do with it, LPF. Almost every club will have that in their official company name.
