Punny Fantasy Football team names for every Premier League club


It’s that time of year again.

After a long wait of, oh, maybe a few weeks, you’re now able to pick your fantasy football team for the new season.

With a new draft-based game and a Free Hit chip, it’s getting all too complicated for some, so we wanted to take some of the effort out.

We want to make sure you get it right when fulfilling the most important task: keeping your team within budget picking a pun for the team name.

We’ve picked out options for every single Premier League team, so you’ve got no excuse for not copying us blindly without giving it a second thought.

So, without further ado, and with thanks to the collective brains of the ShortList office (and our mates who we’ve cribbed off), here are your options.

Oh, and we know some of the most popular fantasy football games have a character limit, but don’t blame us...
