Friday’s Caption Competition

It’s time for another caption competition. But before we do that, the password for the Freddie Mays Bounty tournament at 9pm tonight is:


Shock horror at Anfield this week as man who spends £500 a week on the upkeep of his mohican turns out to be useless at football.  I mean no-one could have ever forseen this happening, could they? What was Brenton Rodgers thinking of when signed him?  Wilfried Bony was available for the same money but instead he plumped for a half time shirt swapping guaranteed trouble maker who created a whole ONE assist in his entire Man City career.

At least he provided some comedy value for his £16m at QPR on Sunday with that open goal. I might laugh now but quick note to self: stop watching games where you’ve bet on Balotelli’s team to win in future – for health reasons. How awful must it be to actually support a team that he plays for?  Here’s a picture of the heroic Mario having one of his good days (I think). Why always me? I wonder Mario.


Congratulation to David Luttrell for winning last week’s competition with: “Do you think my face should be on the back of the pound, Sterling?”
