So will this thread develop into the official club thread?

Western Melbourne FC would be my pick out of that bunch.

Probably in minority here but they should be called Western Suburbs. There's a local team Western Suburbs but can't see that being an issue.

Westside Pride sounds like the name of a 90s boy band.
Yep, and it'd be full of white guys pretending to be black throwing up the "W" hand sign.

This new club is cooked before it starts if this ends up being the name.

Western Melbourne FC is maybe the best of a really, really, ******* really horrific bunch of names.

For those that do not remember Gippsland Falcons were known as "Eastern Pride" before folding in 2000. Followed the Falcons from 92-99 and had unsuccessful trials to play there in 96.

Western Melbourne Warriors? I mean, come on. These people realise there's a team called Western Sydney Wanderers?

Western Melbourne Warriors vs Western Sydney Wanderers.

The funny thing for me is they've pitched themself as not another Melbourne team but seem to really want Melbourne in the name, even though their home ground is going to be 40 km's or so away from Melbourne.

By "West Melbourne", they are referring to Johannesburg, South Africa.

The bid is a scam, Probuild, who want to build the stadium (ex Socceroo Andrew Zinni is Director at Probuild) are actually owned by South African mob WBHO Pty Ltd.

Story gets better, WBHO won a $1.7 Billion dollar "Public Private Partnership" to build the roads around Tarneit stadium.

The soccer bid is merely a front.

Western Melbourne Warriors - describes where the team is based, rolls easier off the tongue. Hate contrived names like "Western Pride".

Yes I do support the "Western Bulldogs" in the AFL and am not a big fan of it after 23 years. Tell everyone I support the "Bulldogs".
