Not really considering the amount of games I have played (and how I play).
My nicknames on a soccer pitch include ‘Psycho Pablo’, ‘Crazy Horse’, ‘CB4’, ‘Red Soxs’ and ‘Defender’ (to name but a few).
I know this is going OT but the funniest nicknames I have heard for soccer players were/are ‘fatigue’ ‘poor’ and ‘last ditch’.
The funniest thing I saw on a soccer pitch was when a guy scored a goal with a volley directly from a corner kick.
The goal was certainly extraordinary, his celebration understandably over the top but his disappearance was totally unexpected!
Having decided his contribution and celebration was sufficient, our goalscorer jogged off the pitch and headed towards the changing rooms. He was not seen again even though there was around 10 minutes left to play.
I guess he must have thought to himself that an outlandish goal like that from a crazy horse defender like him would be a hell of a lot to ask for but was more than enough to kill that game off as a competition.
And he was wrong; his team won the game 2 – 1 but two goals were conceded after he had gone.
When his teammates eventually caught up with the guy, each asked him “Where did you go, man?” He simply grinned and said kinda cryptically ‘I was feeling lucky so I went to check out your mother…’
