The wonderful world of football shirt names is a confusing one, with some players using nicknames and other variations on their name on their top.

And one Twitter user thought, with that in mind, Stoke City striker Peter Crouch should get himself a different moniker.

“Here comes The Big Fella”. It’s got a ring to it.

And Crouch thought so too, but had an idea of his own.

As the number of retweets suggests, this was an idea others found intriguing, despite the extra pennies you’d have to spend on the ‘inho’ on your shirt.

Is Crouchao an option?

Crouchzilla is a bit more unusual, but not out of the question.

And of course, for a big man with as good a touch as Crouch, a reference to his height was always going to be suggested.

Crouch has enjoyed a summer of successful tweeting so far, so what about Tweeter Crouch?

OK, maybe not.
