This a football related thread - why have you chosen your pseudonym?

My first recollections of following Grimsby Town were, Matt Tees and Rodney Green combining to score a load of goals in my young spectator introduction to 3rd division league football in the mid sixties.

Ever since, I have had Grimsby Town in my heart.

This may be a one off thread - but I hope other Town fans can explain their pseudonym.

The summer of 2004 saw quite a lot of exotically named triallists playing for thrusting young gaffer Russell 'Slades' Slade's GTFC - but none more exciting than mysterious Malian hitman, Abdul.

It was a sunny Tuesday evening in Scarborough when I first set eyes on him. Tall and powerful, with a touch like silk - if only Paul Groves had discovered him a year earlier instead of signing 47 year old Iffy Onuora.

He had a shot over the bar and wore number 19. Ends.

I used to be known as relegation plaice but when we got promoted back into the league I asked Rob if I could change it to promotion plaice, fool me.
The plaice bit comes from when I was a fish lumper on the docks here.

Mine's from moving north in 1991, but only after promotion had been achieved. The docktower bit symbolises the fish docks where I first earned a living in 1970.

No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Ron Rafferty was my first Town hero from season 1956-7 when he signed for Town. Then in 1958-9 when he scored a mountain of goals alongside Ralph Hunt.

A supplementary reason is that the lad who lived next door to us in those days had rhotacism, a problem saying the letter “r” properly. So Won Wafferty became a fixture in our house.

My dad used to eat a lot of skate wings, also known as ginnywings, so it's a nod to him and has a fishy reference too, which fits with the site.
