101 Funny Fantasy Premier League team names

Each year, the biggest decision for FPL managers doesn’t involve starting squads or captaincies. It’s about picking the right team name.

You’ve raced to the computer, logged into FPL, grabbed a team ID, skipped past kit colours and quickly picked a first draft. The problem? You need a team name. Not just any name, a one that gains you respect amongst the FPL community. The holy grail of a hilarious 20-character label that has never previously been thought of.
