If your football team was a pop star, who would it be ?

Here's a few clever, silly, and somewhat harsh suggestions from some of our writers, featuring Arsenal, Blackburn Rovers, Leicester City, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Sunderland, West Ham United.

Arsenal - Elvis Presley

A little less conversation, a little more action.

Blackburn Rovers - Supergrass

Big in the '90s. Nowhere now.

Leicester City - Kasabian

The top of the heap - but only because everyone else let their guard down.

Liverpool - Madonna

Huge in the 80s, desperate to stay relevant now, but yielding little real success.

Liverpool - U2

Once one of the best acts on the planet, with a massive fanbase, now holding onto past glories, with output of diminishing quality, a lack of awards and a front man prone to talking rubbish.

Manchester City - One Direction

Big money backing turned them into a major brand from nowhere.

Manchester City - Biggie Smalls

More money, more problems.

Newcastle United - Sting

Inducing nostalgia in people over the age of 45.


Sunderland - David Bowie

Enough said.

Sunderland - Bon Jovi

Livin' on a prayer.

Sunderland - Jay Z

99 problems, but a pitch ain't one.

West Ham United - B-EAST-ie Boys

Cult band. Big following. Never had a number 1.

West Ham - Tom Jones, The Voice

Changing where you play isn't always a winning formula.
