Football is an amusing game according to the famous quote. Not least this week, thanks to some rather dim-witted supporters and players.

Firstly, a Millwall fan who is fast becoming an internet phenomena. The supporter somehow got confused ahead of an upcoming game against Charlton. Despite owning his very own season-ticket, he believed he needed to purchase an additional ticket to gain himself access to the match. Confused? I was too. Here is an excerpt from the thread on the ‘House of Fun’ Millwall forum.

Stuwall: “For some reason the ticket office told me my season ticket seat was gone. Strange.”
Sylark: “Because it’s sold – as in your season ticket – sold – purchased.”
Stuwall: “Why should it be? My seat that I paid for should be my seat that I paid for. The bird at the window told me my seat was sold out. Strange.”
Jimmy: “It’s because you already have it.”
Stuwall: “This is getting silly. I went to get tickets for the Charlton game and was told my seat was gone.”
Br2lion: “Probably to you.”

The poor chap later realised his mistake and was then subject to the abuse and ridicule he clearly deserved (not least for supporting Millwall). He also was awarded this honour,

Cock of the Week
The second ‘Cock of the Week’ award goes to David Beckham (not the first time he has won this honour). Apparently some Manchester United fans are unhappy that an American owns their club and has put them into a bit of debt. Therefore they are wearing Norwich City colours in protest. Apparently ManUtd used to wear green and gold pre-1993 when they were shit. Ironically, the fans taking part in the protest won’t have supported ManUtd back then.

Anyway, back to Beckham… after his current team, AC Milan, got destroyed and dumped out the Champions League, Beck’s thought it fitting to celebrate with the joyous Manchester United supporters and wear the Norwich City scarf (or whatever it’s supposed to be).  Fair enough. But then, following the match, he denied supporting the cause.

Did my eyes not deceive me? Did he not wear the scarf and applaud the fans? Let’s take a look…

Beckham Scarf
Yes, he did. Silly Beckham!

What I think would be the funniest thing to ever happen in football, is if the American owners who the fans are protesting against, decided to change Manchester United’s kit next season to… yes, you’ve guessed it… green and gold – AKA, the Norwich City kit. Go on, Mr. Glazer – you know it makes sense.

For every ManYoo fan you upset, there will be a Leeds or Liverpool fan laughing.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
