Hello? When was this marketing guff produced then? Top of the table clash? If that's the case, then I'm going to bed with Kiera Knightley tonight, though she looks pretty much like my wife as she lies, mouth open, fast asleep and snoring on the sofa opposite me.
"Nothing beats being there" eh? Presumably they mean nothing beats being top of the table. Trouble is, to be there, you have to beat teams rather than draw with them! In fact "Nothing beats" could become a strap line for Allardyce's team if the the syntax is reversed: "Beats nothing" sums things up rather unfortunately doesn't it?
"Buying a ticket is easy"? I'm sure. But selling them isn't so easy these days is it? Unless you are selling tickets for the genuine top of the table clash between Southampton and Reading of course. And if that one goes the wrong way, the game against Brighton becomes something of a dead rubber. "Push For The Play-Offs" doesn't have the same ring about it, does it?
Bless Sullivan and Gold. They are doing their best to turn a dog's dinner into an haute cuisine banquet, or a cheap porn flick into a Hollywood epic, but you can only get away with serving up shit as caviar for so long; and Allardyce has been found out good and proper. Top of the table clash indeed? Is the club supplying coach transportation down to Southampton I wonder?
