Marvel At The Punnery Of The Definitive Balls.ie Pizza XI, As Chosen By You

As our Twitter followers will be aware, we've been running a competition with Four Star Pizza where we've challenged you to name your best 'pizza footballers', with the best suggestion winning free Four Star Pizza for a whole year.

Though we initially feared an onslaught of 'Wayne Pepperooneys', some of the suggestions were truly ingenious.

Others, however, left us genuinely mystified.

In fairness to David, he did also suggest 'Teddy Sheringham and Pineapple', which is straight out of the top drawer.


Using all of your suggestions on Twitter, we've finally compiled the ultimate Pizza XI and the lineup is very punny indeed. But we start with the boss:

Manager: Louis van Gaalapeño

If you give him lip, he'll take your head off. Fair play to Stephen Lawlor for this one.

GK: Fraser FourStar

LB: John-Arne Pizza

CB: The Rajun Hot Dejan Lovren

RB: Quinton Fourcheese

CDM: Salami Khedira

CDM: Dietmar Hamann Pineapple

CM: Claudio More-Cheesio

RW: Park Ji Sun-Dried Tomatoes

LW: Neymargherita

ST: Antoine Cheesemann

ST: Gonzalo Hawaiían



To top it all off, we'll have commentary from Chive Tyldesley.

The winner of the year's supply of Four Star pizza, however, was wordsmith Robbie Deegan from Co. Limerick. His 'Park Ji Sun-dried Tomatoes' tweet had us in raptures in the office.

Plus, you just know that Park would run himself into the ground for that Pizza XI and - let's face it - he'll need to, what with Quinton Fourcheese playing entirely out of position on the right-hand side of a three-man defence (although hopefully the all-German defensive midfield pairing can provide some cover).


Shout out, too, to Peter Golden, who simply suggested Alessandro del Piero should line out for the lads - citing the following magnificent picture as proof enough.

By all means keep your suggestions flying in, particularly if you feel like you have a pizza name that could usurp one of our starting XI.

And congratulations to Robbie, who wins free Four Star Pizza for a year.
