    My friend and I refer to Sean Johnson as Jean (Pronounced John, duh) Seanson because it's hilarious when you say it out loud.

    That sounds like a character from Parks and Recreation.

    I think they are just adding the Portuguese diminutive suffix "inho" which a fair number of soccer players have as part of their names. I believe it is being done with a blend of irony and affection -- as in he's no Ronaldinho or Coutinho but he's our "inho," or something like that..

    Did you see CBA hanging out in the Dallas half with less than five minutes to go? Rodney Wallace was covering him at left back. I mean there is a time to push and overlap but not in the final minutes protecting a lead.

    Added "Dome" for Domènec Torrent. If anyone comes across any others, just let me know.

    We're working on a pineapple riff but it probably won't catch on.

    "If you like Pina Coladas, well we brought one from Spain
    If you´re not into long balls, then the answer is plain
    If you like keeping hold of the football, you’ll be glad that he came
    Yes it’s Dome that you´ve looked for, you’ll be glad that he came”

    Thanks! Already had that listed, but added the video to make it more official since Domè was the one that said it.

    Should we add "Pretty Pineapple" for Dome? Or is that more of an inside joke?

    It's not a nickname for Dome. We didn't call Vieira, "Quite Really Pleased".

    Added! Do these work:

    • Valentin Castellanos - Taty (previous nickname)
    • Alexander Ring - Ringleader (play on his name since he often distributes and dictates the play)

    Tried looking where "Taty" came from or what it means without luck.

    I would think just putting it as "called so by teammates and coach" would make more sense, since we have no idea where it came from, and the first we hear of it is Lewis and Dome saying it
