Legends Of The League

by | 26th, April 2005

‘WE are a brave and honourable bunch. We struggle on through wind, rain and no end of abuse to bring you the word from the football grounds of this crazy land.

And today we can reveal that even we have the ability to astonish ourselves. For one week only, and while stocks last, we can offer you a limited edition 22-carat, gold-trimmed porcelain plate portraying some of the greats of the modern game.

And this can be yours for the knock-down, smash-and-grab, ram-raid price of GBP42.99 (overseas orders pay GBP5 for postage and packing).

Our record in football is truly amazing. And now we give you the chance to join us in a celebration of the greatest game in the world.

Now artist and life-long football supporter Tony Broke pays tribute to some of the men who have brought honour and glory to the game.

Tony, who learnt this trade in Slade (prison), where he studied for five years after he was found guilty of organising the great pitch invasion of ‘84, has used his master skills to invoke football’s true splendour.

His creation, ‘Legends of the League’, has been expertly reproduced on a plate crafted from the finest porcelain. Each item comes with a serial-numbered certificate of authenticity.

This is the chance for you to join in the global tribute to the game’s greats.

Orders are being handled on a first-come, first-served basis. We cannot stress enough how popular these plates have been. To avoid disappointment reserve your plate today.

This is an official product. We take no responsibility for any copies bought on the black market or through unofficial outlets.

And what’s more you can even help the youth of tomorrow by applying for our own credit card.

Yes, at last we have cracked and can now offer the ‘Legends of the League’ credit card. Those applying before 09:00am get a free leatherette carrying case and access to our 24-hour online banking service.

Using the card enables you to invest in the future of the game. Every day you exceed your overdraft limit, we will specially send a given percentage to the Young Football Institute (or other).

What better way to show your love of the game than supporting its future?

Take this opportunity to be involved in the sport you love.

And, remember, it’s not playing the game, it’s not even watching the game – it’s buying the game that counts.’
