The Premier League's Worst Mascots Ever
Without a doubt the best ever football mascot in the English Premier League is Roary the Tiger.
He has the ball skills of Pele with the fire in his belly of a real Tiger but the cute looks that kids of all ages love.
Unfortunately, not all clubs have such a great standard bearer as their mascot. Here are some of the worst mascots ever to grace the premiership.
Do you agree with the choices? Or do you have a personal favourite that you think should get a special mention?
Let the Great Mascot debate begin.
Portsmouth: Frogmore the Frog
Frogmore the Frog
Bizarre in the extreme but there is a link to the club for this one that makes sense. Fratton Park the home of Pompey is off Frogmore Road.
A truly strange seven out of ten.
Manchester City: Moonchester
I kind of like the name and I kind of like the bizarro style of Moonchester but just what the hell is it?
Is it the Moon?
Is it a bat?
Is it a space alien?
Is it their new multi-million pound signing?
Six out of ten.
Sheffield United: Captain Blade
Okay, you are the Blades so you have to be something with a sword or a knife. But a pirate? And a ginger one at that? Sheffield is nowhere near the sea, is he the famous pirate of the river Sheaf?
Six out of ten.
Manchester United: Fred The Red
Fred the Red
The feared Red Devils of Manchester United!
Just what has this fat red Care Bear got to do with the Red Devils? Okay, it's got some horns. That's about all it's got in common with a devil. Fred's got one thing going for him at least he isn't as fat as Rooney.
Five out of ten.
Crystal Palace: Alice The Eagle
Alice the Eagle
Yeah, I know that Crystal Palace are the eagles but why did they make their mascot look like a middle aged women?
Nice bra Alice.
Three out of ten.
Stoke City: Pottermus
Possibly the most tenuous link between a club and their mascot. The Potters because they come from the Potteries and a hippopotamus. Someone really must have hit their head as a child to come up with that one.
A lowly three out of ten.
Leeds United: Lucas The Kop Kat
Lucas the Kop Kat
Okay Leeds I know you need to be feared by someone since you have been languishing in the lower echelons of English football, but surely it hasn't come to this.
Lucas has to be one of the ugliest mascots ever, and why aren't you a Peacock. Didn't your team used to be called the Peacocks because of the Peacock pub that Elland Road used to be named after?
Two out of ten. Yorkshire's worst mascot by far.
Arsenal: Gunnasaurus Rex
What in the world is this?
It's a monstrosity of a thing. It has no link what-so-ever with the club. It's ungainly and would fall over it's own feet if it tried to take a shot on goal, and don't get me started about it's defensive skills.
Quite frankly one of the worst mascots in the world.
One out of ten. Sorry Gunners, your mascot is letting you down. Maybe a French Professor would be a better mascot?
Wigan Athletic: JJ
What has a Girl Guide and Wigan Athletic have in common? They both look the same, if the Girl Guide was made out of foam rubber.
Quite frankly the least fearsome mascot in football.
Zero out of ten.
Everton: Chang the Elephant
Chang the Elephant
I'm sorry, but this one just gets less than zero marks out of ten. Just because of the blatant corporate cash in. What happened to poor old Mr. Toffee?
Minus five out of ten. Get a real mascot Toffeemen.
