    Just a knee jerk reaction to the possibility of Inter Milano.

    They renamed (from Crawley Down) to avoid being confused with Crawley Town once the latter were promoted into the Football League.
    Crawley Down is further from Gatwick than Crawley Town's ground is.

    I played football against Aer Lingus FC at both schoolboy and adult level, I don't think they still exist.

    It's OK, we can (almost) laugh at it now.

    (Crawley Down is a village a couple of miles from Gatwick Airport.)

    Not a club, but a whole league - From 2003 to 2015 there was the London City Airport Sunday League

    I was involved in the shenanigans at the time with the Luton Trust. It was amazing, meeting in all sorts of locations around the town plotting how to get the club out of his hands. Gurney had clearly failed to realise that a league club, however unfashionable and lowly, was a different order of magnitude than a non-league club and thought it would be a slightly bigger Bedford.

    I'd never come across the Gurney story before, and am now halfway through the Trouble at the Top BBC documentary (it's on Youtube).

    Gurney comes over as a spectacularly dim individual, to a pathetic degree. Terrible thing to say, but it's slightly leavening what is a very depressing story how daft this bastard sounds.

    I'd always assumed that they were part of the same club as Handball Club de Nantes.

    Are there any other sports clubs named after airports?
    In the middle of John Gurney's mad phase owning Luton, he wanted to change their name to London Luton FC.

    You don't expect the new name and badge to survive or the old ones?

    I don't expect either to survive the sale of the club, which is something that is currently being discussed and I expect to happen in the next one to three years.

    Yuck, though the name change (or re-emphasis of the name) is far worse a crime than the logo

    Oh boy. I can't believe that this is going to be Inter Milano's real logo.

    British Airways FC of the Combined Counties League D1 have a disappointing badge (above).

    Though when getting it off google I did discover that Athletic Madrid were known as "Athletic Aviacion de Madrid from 1939 to 1947 after a merger with a team set up by members of the Spanish Air Force."

    Yeah, that's why I left out the United... so should they, why would you want to associate yourselves with that absolute shower right now?

    Newcastle United Jets? No, no, no. That's too many names.

    Isn't Newcastle Jets' name and crest referring to a nearby air force base?

    Cardiff Airport play in the South Wales Alliance.

    Frankfurt's basketball team have spent the last decade as Fraport Skyliners thanks to a sponsorship deal with the local airport.
