This morning, I noticed this on my Twitter feed…

When it was announced that this was to be the new Leeds United Crest and wasn’t a badge designed by a five year old fan, using Microsoft Paint, I was beyond bemused.

It turns out that 10,000 people were consulted on this design, over 6 months, and therefore it must be good. Incidentally, 50,000 Leeds fans signed an online petition, in a matter of hours, to get the crest banned.

Luckily, it looks like Leeds United have seen the (obvious) error of their ways and have stated that they will reconsider the design… basically it’s dead.

The whole thing seems totally bizarre to me. I am sure that this was a genuine PR disaster, and not a ploy by the club, to distract fans from the fact that the club are yet to sign a striker in the January transfer window.

Twitter was amazing at bringing down the monstrosity. Here are just four of my favourite tweets…

    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.
