My pathetic attempt to keep West Ham a two-bit club*

May 11, 2006
I've been art directing a set of flyers and posters for a certain football TV company. A bit like Sky, but a bit more yellow coloured, if you catch my drift.

This afternoon, I had to make a call on what players to use to promote their televised football fixtures. Now over this festive period, Man Ure had 3 so I made Ronaldo nice and big. But then decisions decisions; Chelsea only have one match, Spurs one and West Ham at least two, with a possible third.

So my advice from the boss was to get Dean Ashton up nice and big.

When I explained my position to him that, as a Southend United fan, it went against my better judgement, and that Torres would be a far better idea even though he hasn't got a game, he understood my plight being a Sheffield Wednesday fan and agreed to leave Ashton off.

Suck on that West Ham. 'Professor Chaos' strikes again!
