Most of these names depend on how you pronounce clique.
Kleek or Klick.
The third letter is 'I' not e or double e.

Northern monkeys pronounce it Klick and we'll thump anyone that doesn't.

And it's hardly a clique anyway - no f**ker likes any other member.

We've moved on - and where do any of my suggestions use a Click pun. I'm a G-Man myself. :P

OK, to stop the northern gits kicking their whippets

A film pun, and not a click in sight :D

And why have you re-posted Whistling nnocently

Because I had second thoughts (perhaps wisely) and deleted it. Then I decided to stick with it after all. Now you've reproduced it I'm stuck with it.:(

Being a French word it should be pronounced "kleek".
Ironically it translates as "click" in English.

I've always pronounce it like click (hence my pun 'Clique as a Parrot' which may or may not be wrong then) but also have heard it as "cleek" but mostly hear people say it as 'Click' here (from London, now live in Essex).

Plaque is another one. The pronunciations on'telly are all over the place.

I was going to say "Waits to be greyed out", but remembered Aaron wouldn't be seen dead on this thread.

Yes - but with plaque it's just a long v. short vowel thing.

GODOT'S GOAL GRINDERS
WE BAND OF GRUDGERS
GODOT'S GOAL GRUDGERS
THE LEAGUE OF GRUDGE(R)S
GODOT'S LEAGUE OF GRUDGE(R)S
GRUDGERS AND GRINDERS
GRUDGE MATCH OF THE DAY
GOD'S OWN
GOD'S ZONE
THE GENTS

I quite like Grudge Match of the Day.

I don't think we need any puns on my name, especially since they always seem to be God-related. Some years back when Badge was in the league and K?n did something magical or farcical he came up with 'Aguero, wrath of Godot' which is pretty neat.

He was a good guy, Badge, but the shit slinging on here was too rich for his blood. His team name was Alphabetti Bonetti.

This is a very astute observation - are you sure you're a Yorkshireman?
