Sometimes football as a sport has an irritating tendency to take itself too seriously. There isn’t enough time to stop and appreciate the fun things in life, and that’s where we come in. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, here are the worst anagram names in football history.
Before the parade of complaints start pouring in, yes – these are ridiculous. But hey, if we can’t laugh every once in a while then what will we become? Before answering that, just take a quick scan of these delightfully crude names and simply enjoy the childish nature of it all.
David Ginola (Vagina Dildo)
Look, whatever David Ginola got up to in his spare time is none of our business. Considering how incredible he was on the pitch, as far as we're concerned the Frenchman's personal matters are irrelevant.
Teddy Sheringham (He’d Shag Dirty Men)
Good old Teddy has been known to enjoy a party or two over the years, but telling tales about fellow footballers is a tad crass.
I mean come on, even if he would is it really necessary to flaunt the information to the world?
Peter Shilton (Enter Hot Lips)
The lesser known Enter Hot Lips were a spin-off band from Enter Shikari, with Shilton as the lead bass guitarist. The more you know.
Diego Maradona (Do A Mad One Argi)
Considering Diego's exploits at the '94 World Cup, it's not exactly surprising that the bloke has been on a few mad ones in his day.
Dimitar Berbatov (Bad Vibrator Time)
There must be something in the water at Spurs because this is getting a tad ridiculous. Dimitar, meet David.
Carlo Ancelotti (Rectal Location)
You're getting to that age now, Carlo, where prostate exams are nothing to be ashamed of. Good on you for knowing the location, my friend.
Lucas Leiva (Casual Evil)
Besides sounding like a shite supervillain, this pretty much sums up Lucas' tenure at Liverpool. One way or another, a casual evil will descend upon us all.
Edwin van der Sar (A Dwarves Dinner)
I'm not entirely sure how many dwarves it would take to finally finish off van der Sar, but kudos to them for standing up to the big guy for once.
So there you have it. Anagram brilliance in all it’s glory. To be perfectly honest, there’s likely a string of names on the level of hilarity that these lot have produced so if you know what’s good for you, go out there and find them. God bless the internet.
