    Off the top of my head:

    Tottenham Hotspur
    Aston Villa
    Crystal Palace
    West Bromwich Albion
    Charlton Athletic
    Stockport County
    Nottingham Forest
    Plymouth Argyle
    Rushden & Diamonds
    Queens Park Rangers
    Sheffield Wednesday
    West Ham United (third word as united?! - does that count? )

    plus Crewe Alexandra, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers, as mentioned above. Not quite 17, alas.

    Without wishing to hijack the thread, Arsenal is an interesting one: Am I right in thinking that it is the only club in the football league whose name doesn't contain any geographic reference to the club's location?
