    It is a club name which leads itself to innuendo anyway, for example "and Everton are beating Young Boys"

    A few from Poland chosen for their easy spelling:

    Roztocze Szczebrzeszyn
    Ciężkowianka Ciężkowice
    Tarzani Wrzeszczyna
    Swornica Czarnowąsy
    Żyrzyniak Żyrzyn

    And some other:
    LZS Zimna Wódka ('Zimna Wódka' is a name of a village and it means 'Cold Vodka')
    KS Zagłada Lisów (can be translated to 'doom of the foxes')

    There’s at least a couple of triple word-scores in that lot.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    And they only got to a semi....

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    The literal translation of Juventus is “Youth”, after the Roman goddess of “young men coming of age”.

    Not sure of the relevance to this thread, but I read an article in this months “Left Lion” about the relationship between Notts. County and Juventus and the author stated that Juventus translates as “Young Boys”, but after extensive research (I looked on google) it was a false claim, and being as someone posted about Young Boys of Switzerland I thought it may be relevant, but it was not true so it isn’t

    So, as you were.

    (Sorry if that’s a bit of a ramble but I’ve just took my pain meds and they take about 20 mins to kick in, and it helps to concentrate the mind for a few minutes).

    The Romans were very partial to young men coming of age, and even younger. Though maybe not as much as the ancient Greeks.

    THE TRUTH IS THERE AND WITH IT I GO TO THE END OF THE WORLD .
