Make a film title pun from a striker’s name

536

We’ve seen Arsenal linked to countless forwards this summer, how much truth there is any of those links is open to question.

Our guess would be ‘not much’, but it doesn’t change the fact we need a striker and people are getting restless. So, in order to pass the time, we’ve decided to play a little game: work a player’s name into the title of a film.

You can use first name or surname, but the film must exist. You can also use any striker you like, rather than just the ones we’ve been reported to be interested in.

Here are a few to kick you off with, please add your own in the comments.

Bacca to the Future

Lukaku’s Talking

Higuaindecent Exposure

Y Tu Benzemama Tambien

Gomez Congeniality

Throw Aubama from the train

Lacazette aux Folles

The Big Lewandowski

Right, you creative pun geniuses, do your stuff.

The dark Wright. It’s not racist, is it? Btw pogba to utd shows that money is the single most important criteria in transfers. How else do you explain a world class player going from Italian champions to a team in europa league. We on the other hand are always looking for a bargain, something which a cultured left foot touched on in his blog a few days ago. Why are we told that players like Griezmann and Aubemayang are out of our reach? Why don’t we put in a 75 million quid bid and check the resolve of their parent… Read more »

OK, I know this isn’t a film title but the player exists and it is factually correct

Or the Shawcross Redemption. Obviously this is a movie that will never be made as he doesn’t deserve redemption, the leg snapping orc!

Although I would consider making the movie if he snapped John Terry in half. Not just his leg. The whole thing. In two.

I was thinking about the one season wonder Darren Bent that everyone wanted. I wouldn’t dare mess with the name of the Lord.

Going ahead with one season wonders-
Charlie Austin Powers-the spy who..
Michu Black (meet Joe Black)
Carroll
The last air Benteker(Bendtner would fit so well here.. But I’m not blasphemous. No.)
Big bucks Benny (McCarthy)
