Gharb Rangers v.II

Angelo commented on the previous  entry regarding clubs and footballing names. He wonders how many people would recognise the Maltese teams. If I say Spartans you’d all say Hamrun…. but what about the following… (all MFA & GFA leagues allowed, multiple answers possible) – and enjoy the bonus question…

1. Corinthians 2. Knights 3. Swallows 4. Tigers 5. Athleta 6. Saint Andrew’s 7. Stars 8. Lightnings 9. Saint Peter’s 10. Athletic 11. Spurs 12. Rainbows 13. Youngsters 14. Lions (2) 15. Rovers 16. Rangers 17. Youths 18. Falcons 19. Wanderers 20. Calypsians (defunct) 21. Sirens

And now for the bonus question(s), both deal with Gozitan teams:

A. What is the current name for the Gozitan team that has changed names several times having used the following nicks in its name : United, SK, Wanderers?

B. A Gozitan team made a brief appearance in the early nineties playing two (or maybe three) seasons in the bottom division. Its colours were purple, black and white and the nick they chose was St. Pauli – the inside joke being that this was after the red light district in Hamburg and had nothing saintly about it. From which of Gozo’s villages did this team hail?

C. What is the name of the main stadium in Gozo?

(Additional ridiculous and inconsequential trivia: Registered as a GFA player with team A after a free transfer from Melita FC, your favourite blog author was transferred to Team B together with two other players for the royal sum of Lm70.)

Enjoy.

    Main stadium in Gozo: Gozo Stadium, ex Silver Jubilee

    WPU United: urban legend but prob truw. stands for Wing Penis Utd. (non-Maltaphones dont bother)

  2. Bhas-soltu eccellenti… pero darb’ohra itfa’ n-numri hdejhom ghax qlajt ghajnejja…

    Dwar SPURS le mhux Hotspurs… filkaz mhux Pietà biss imma ukoll Victoria. U SPURS biss???

    Lions … Naxxar u iva xi hadd Ghawdxi….

    Rangers … mhux Haz-Zebbug… Gharb (as in title)

    Wanderers – Sliema u anki Victoria

    Il-Calypsians kienu team iehor mill-Oratorju (ghawdex) li issa hadu posthom l-Oratory Youths.

    Ma ippruvajtx twiegeb A u B bonus?

  3. A. Victoria
    B. Kont semmejtuli imma nsejt…Marsalforn ukoll?

  4. Iva. biex inkunu pedantici peress li Victoria hemm tlieta qed nitkellmu dwar it-tim maghruf bhala Ta’ Savina li issa ufficjlament jismu SK Victoria Wanderers. Qabel kien jismu ukoll “SK Wanderers” u “Victoria United”.

    Dwar San Pauli – iva Marsalforn. Il-President kien rama’ klabb hlejju taht il-Qolla s-Safra fejn konna iltqajna darba qabel loghba. Ma ergajtx rajtu t-team ghax kien wasal zmien l-A levels. Il-president kien wehel ukoll minhabba kwistjoni dwar immigranti illegali u x’naf jien. Plejer iehor involut fil-famuza transfer ta’ Lm70 kien Mark Galea Pace illi kien jilghab hafna ahjar waterpolo milli futbol.

    U kif qed insemmu Waterpolo… taf tghidli x’kien jismu l-ahhar tim Ghawdxi li sparixxa biex halla lill-Otters l-uniku rapprezentanti tal-gzira?

  5. le, dik ma nafx nghidlek…

  6. Sharks.

    U qabilhom, tinnarra il-leggenda kien hemm ukoll is-Sea Urchins u t-Teddy Bears.

  7. SPURS biss min huma?

  8. Ovvja…. San Lawrenz! – Saint Lawrence Spurs

  9. Tajba kienet din 🙂 U kont persważ li Mark jidħlilha bir-ras 🙂
    U biex ngħidlek, ta’ Ħaż Żebbuġ għandu raġun xorta, għax dawk Żebbuġ Rangers.
