From The BBC:

World Cup 2018: Tube station named Gareth Southgate

A London Underground station has been temporarily named after England's football manager.

Southgate Tube station was rebranded Gareth Southgate station from Monday morning for 48 hours, after the squad finished fourth in the World Cup.

It was England's best result since 1990 when they also lost in the semi-final.

"We're delighted to be able to show our appreciation to Gareth and the team by renaming the station in his honour," Transport for London said.

The Piccadilly Line station, in Enfield, north London, will display the manager's name on its signs until the end of Tuesday.

"Iver got to get to the station, off to see my grandson who's just been (Pang)bourne"

"Havant you heard, GWR are going to Ax(minster) most of the services today, what a (Weston-super) Mare"

"No way, are you (Per)shore? You must be having a Bath (Spa), what a (Melk)sham that is, who knew(bury) they could get so (Tap)low"

"That MD, he makes me so (Star)cross, I reckon they should shove a (Crow)thorne Up(wey) his behind. Don't think he will be (Maiden)head of GWR much longer"

"I'd better walk (Clifton)down the (Red)hill and get my Car(mar)then instead.
