I’ve been whiling away a few minutes trying to think of Walsall players who had nicknames (that were well known and/or often used e.g. by fans or the press). I couldn’t come up with many at all - it seems mostly we actually use their NAMES :astonished.
So I thought I’d turn it into a quiz about the few I did remember and invite other UTSers to identify the players associated with certain nicknames - and then add their own to the quiz list. (Of necessity, most of mine are “old”. Also, some are very easy, some less so - and some may be disputed by the cognoscenti. Moreover, some were, shall we say, rather less than PC. But never mind).
So, who were these?
Cannonball (aka The Chest)
Banana Boot (aka Shovelfoot)
Clayt the Great
That’s all I can come up with.
How many can you name?
How many can you add (without answers - to see how knowledgeable UTSers are)?
