    i think it's more because they don't think having "FC" in their name is stupid lol

    I still went with the assumption that y'all knew.... hence Newark City..... yeah technically it would be Newark City Football Club.... and if I had a logo, it would probably have NCFC on it somewhere....

    I would like more actual names.... and not all just "insert your name here" FC....

    In my L15 league, even with 14 active clubs, Yes all teams are active, just managers don't watch every game. 8 of the 14 teams in my league end with "FC" I will admit some teams do suit having FC but not nearly every team in the entire game. lol.

    might have to do with the fact that the game will show you as an team name "your name FC"
    a lot of people probably don't change that name

    Thing is the game offers you to name your team at the beginning of the game, but some probably thought that sounds good enough for them.

    Even REAL clubs that have city, town, united, etc. have FC after their name in the UK. Here in Spain it tends to be FC before the name or CD Club Deportivo (Sporting club). There is also AFC - Association Football Club, from where the term soccer comes.

    I like a bit of tradition.

    My main team Fc Barmalaganet, an amalgamation of my two favourite teams, Barnet and Malaga, reflected in the team colours and the badge.

    My experimental team, lower level, different server, is Wobbly FC, because it sounds silly.

    I love beating teams called Real Madrid, I adore beating teams called Galatasaray or Manchester United.

    During the Franco years in Spain, Barcelona were forced to change its name to CF Barcelona, CF being Castellano, FC being Catalan.

    Catalan was outlawed by Franco. Following his reign, the club reverted to its Catalan name. The rivalry between Barça and Real is about much more than football. It is a question of language, separatism, deep routed hatred/love of Franco, colour versus white. Barça's motto is "mes que un club" more than a club.

    In Spain there are three types of person. Barça, Madrid and those that don't follow football. Even if you support another club, you have to choose white or colours. I chose colours.

    Incidentally, they both compete in basketball too.

    Yes I know that every team is technically a 'FC' in the UK but when you look at the league tables you don't see the 'FC' printed on the team unless theres an exception, Like AFC Wimbledon to distinguish from the old Wimbledon and Chester FC to distinguish from the old defunct Chester City.

    edit; you have till 1pm ( gmt ) tuesday.
    Your name is Martin?
    You are a fan of ornathology?
    You support the Norfolk farmer that shot a burglar in his house?
    You liked the band the Housemartins?
    You are an undercover martian but disguised it by removing the A?
    You are a girl called Martine or Martina?
    You have a loved one by that name or a derivative?

    TBC - possibly
