Vale isn't a secondary name - Port Vale is the name of the club. You forgot Borough as in Stevenage Borough.

Thanks for your comment. I'll remove Vale, but Stevenage stopped being called Stevenage Borough in 2010. If you find another 'Borough' let me know : )

Of course Vale is a second name, you could say the same about Aston Villa or Crystal Palace in that case.

zlatan is right. Aston is a place - the football club is Aston Villa. Villa is the secondary name. Port is not a place - the club play in Burslem and although Port Vale is not a real place the club is Port Vale. Vale is not the secondary name. Crystal is not a place - Crystal Palace is a place in London and the club has no secondary name. Still think of Stevenage as Borough (my team Barrow beat them in the FA Trophy Final in 2010) - agree they have now dropped the Borough bit. How about secondary prefixes? AFC Wimbledon for instance ? Maybe not!

The name of the club isnt Port Vale, it's Burslem Port Vale, Burslem being the place in Stoke. It doenst get used much but is still official. If you have Palace then you should have Vale.

As others have said Palace should not be on here. Crystal Palace is the actual name of the place they play at, like Arsenal they don't have a second name.

Stanley is presumably Accrington. When were they in the top four tiers? I am not doubting, just asking. As for borough, hopefully BobManFord is joking. Middlesbrough is a town, and also NOT spelled MIddlesborough. Just FYI.

Aren't Accrington Stanley in Football League 2 right now? That is the 4th tier of English football and they've been there for the last 10 years or so I think.

I think the question master makes it clear its only English (or we'd have Thistle as well as Academicals) and top four levels (that discounts Harriers and probably a few more,... I think there is a case for saying we have Palace AND Vale ... OR neither.. but that's not a complaint, just a discusison point... Good quiz

Ok let's sort this out. There's only one way to do this. We should be looking for the last name of football clubs with multiple words. E.g we should have Ham and Vale and Palace. Stevenage have changed their name. to conclude, great quiz.

I like it that in England they have a football team named after an economist: Milton Keynes Dons. Other countries could follow suit. Germany could have Borussia Karl Marx; the US, Milton Friedman FC; Scotland, Adam Smith United.

It would need to a pair of economists :). Maynard Friedman has a certain ring.
