It's Snow Joke, Setanta!!

It's Snow Joke, Setanta!!

According to a Daily Mirror report, he Clarets have missed out on an £80,000 pay-out from Setanta which would have been due from the TV coverage of the recent FA Cup victory against West Brom in the 4th Round Replay

The 4th round replay at Turf Moor was going to be the live match after Arsenal's replay with Cardiff City was postponed due to heavy snow in the South East and London areas.

The same snow prevented the Setanta crew from getting their cameras up North with their trucks stuck in London unable to drive though the white stuff.

Blooming typical, when you need money, it goes elsewhere due to an Act of God! I don't believe in a Deity anyway but if I did, I bet his Lordship wouldn't be wearing a Claret & Blue scarf!
