You have to laugh. Morrison arrived in the Prem wearing gloves in August and with his name changed on his back, Brazilian style, to the much more catchy Ravel. Talk about Mr Precious and Mr Ego!
But I'm not about to criticise the decision. How could I when I have supported the Hull City Tigers name change?
Morrison is far too common a name. If it was Waitrose, fair enough, that has a whiff of quality about it, but if you were called Asda, Tesco, Lidl or Aldi, would you want the name emblazoned on the back of your football shirt?
Mind you, Ravel has apparently had the supermarket's adverts plastered all around the corridors of the Boleyn, screaming out to Allardyce, "Fresh choice for you!" and "More of what matters!".
And let's face it, whatever the boy chooses to wear on the back of his shirt, and given his history some would argue it should simply be "C*nt", all that matters is his performance on the field. We didn't have long enough to judge him yesterday, but he was involved in the disallowed goal so that has to be promising.
Ravel, the English Brazilian. We would all be happy with that!
