Social media: Football players with memorable names

24 June 2016

Sparked from Newport County's signing of Jazzi Barnum-Bobb, we asked the social media world for their suggestions of footballers with memorable names.

Fans replied in their numbers and came up with some gems, remembering times when stadium announcers struggled when they were presented with 'Guylain Ndumbu-Nsungu' on a teamsheet, and when Omar Bogle fired them to glory on Football Manager.

So, here's the XI we came up with...

Honourable mentions must also go to Bobson Bawling, Barrington Belgrave, Emmanuel Panther, Jean-Louis Akpa Apro and last, but very not least, Ed Upson, who replied to say he couldn't believe he had failed to make the cut.

@EFL can't believe I didn't make the cut 😂

You're on the bench Ed, and what a bench that is!

Follow, follow, follow...
