MISEE Falkirk have signed Portuguese [...].

Byline: Tam Cowan

MISEE Falkirk have signed Portuguese player Pedro Monteiro - better known to his pals as Pele.

What a tough act to follow, eh? Particularly at Falkirk where the Bairns Supporters'Trust will probably write letters of protest if he's only half as good as his famous Brazilian namesake.

I think footballers are better off if they've got a name that suggests they're not up to much.Then anything else is a bonus.

I'm thinking of guys like Stuart Duff, Jerome Rothen and, of course, dear old Raphael Scheidt.

Talking of funny names, Celtic have apparently been linked with Coventry City striker Leon Best - and he's better known as Zorro.

Funnily enough, another Best - the one and only George - was also a quality swordsman.
