It’s Halloween! So here’s some suitably seasonal football fun for you all…

It may not be the catchiest of titles, but this quiz does what it says on the tin – you’ll find a list of spooky, creepy, magical, and/or gruesome football nicknames below, and all you have to do is name the player, manager or club they refer to.

Some are very easy, some not so easy, and some… are fiendishly difficult (insert evil cackle here). These questions have been tested on a willing volunteer, who confirmed that they are indeed of sufficient fiendishness.

So how many can you get (with or without googling)? Post a comment or tweet us with your answers. The solution will be revealed in the next few days…. GO!
