So, basically, you can call yourself what you like (within the bounds of common decency). But, from posts elsewhere, the FA still have to give the name-change the go-ahead, and have in the past not accepted certain names. And, presumably the whole point of the exercise in the first place, the general awareness of HI/RC has already been raised considerably!

But I guess if you can call yourself Hashtag United, then pretty much anything will doSmile.

I see facts should not get in the way of a good story

The Olympic Stadium , unfit as it is for football , nonetheless is as far as I know in the London Borough of Newham made up of the old West Ham and East Ham Boroughs and specifically in the bit which was West Ham

The Boleyn it is true however stood approx 50 yards outside the borough boundary in the old East Ham for which apparently West Ham the football club will never be forgiven.

You're surely not suggesting that Guildford was regarded as a city for several hundred years before the building of its mid C20th cathedral? The dioceses of Guildford and Portsmouth were carved out of Winchester in 1927, Southwark having been created earlier also from part of that vast diocese which, unlike Lincoln among others, escaped changes in the time of Henry VIII.

Are you suggesting The Nottingham Inclosure Act of 1845 got things wrong ?

Strange that no one has corrected the matter in the last 170+years.

Given some of Ergogans latest rantings is modern day Turkey an oxymoron? Oh politics sorry!

and wasn't their name Bradford FC, and weren't they a Rugby Union club before until 1895 when they started playing Northern (now League) and the Association game? Then they went purely football in 1907 when they joined the Southern League?

They only became Bradford (Park Avenue) in 1907 to distinguish themselves from Bradford City.

So a return to the original name would see them purely as Bradford FC

Only if you count clubs, rather than grounds ;)



I count as a groundhop whatever I feel appropriate.

Reserves? Yes, why not?
Friendlies? No problem.
Bracketed ticks? Come on in, I say.

Tiptree Engaine doesn't make any sense! Why do clubs do this?

Engaine is part of the name of the village of Colne Engaine.

If Lyme Regis and Bridport merged - they wouldn't call themselves Bridport Regis.

Can't they just have a logical name like Tiptree & Colne/Colne Engaine.

Tiptree Engaine does not exist and thus does not make any sense!

Workington Athletic are reported to have folded after winning the Cumberland County League. They suffered a mass exodus of players to Whitehaven Amateurs.

Plus the fact they've not played at Park Avenue for nigh on half a century and never will do as the former pitch now houses a gym and changing rooms and nets for the adjacent cricket ground which is having a wedge of investment to try and tempt Yorkshire back. As kirkby k says 'a pointless exercise'

Surely Reading actually has to be a city, for them to call themselves that?

There is no forest in Nottingham, I have not come across any moors in Solihull recently, Newport is not a county, none of the various Wanderers or Rovers seem to do any wandering or roving any more and there was precious little athleticism on display in Oldham last season. I suggest this argument is a red herring. Smile


No but Solihull did merge with Moor Green so although thre aren't any moors in the vicinity I think that makes it a valid name.
