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!

turfmanphil
Snow excuse is it?

I get your drift 8clarets8
Claretacchio
Personally I think Setanta are Aving-A-Lanche!!
turfmanphil
Better Plough on regardless then beThaw our promotion hopes Melt away!
Claretacchio
The money would have been n-ice lets hope for no more slip ups :-)
8clarets8
I am now pretty convinced that snowman can take any more of this and that I will have to consider getting on my 'icicle to find another editor's job!
turfmanphil
Setanta should have shown a bit of grit but did they?Snow nay never snow nay never no more
8clarets8
Are these jokes from Eddie Bl-izzard by any chance?
Claretacchio
No Jasper Claret, host of 'Golden Snow Balls' (Must have wee'd in them first!)
turfmanphil
Turfmanphil that last one really Sleighed me. Is there a Slush fund anywhere we could get a Piste of the action for some tv money or would we get a Frosty reception?
Claretacchio
Hope our new signing, Freeze Williams, isn't reading this. Might be earmuff to send him sliding back to Middlesbrrrr.
RickersTwickers
Well like I said elsewhere, Joey Gudlongjonsson could come on from the bench and give Dichael Muff some company. We will have to hope that Chris Snowy Eagles is fully recovered though and that Snowin Coyle can put out a full sixteen
turfmanphil
Is it Cold-well it is freezing. Let's hope we have a Ski-eme to deal with it and not just Skate over the details. We want to shine just like a BeRisha beacon, give our players a midwinter BLake, not Mahon and Groan and give the opposition Helli-a-ot.
Claretacchio
I think I am going to have to go to-bogg-an throw up! These jokes are just getting too slush for me!
turfmanphil
I couldn't have Artic-ulated that better myself, I hope nothing H-ails you.
Claretacchio
Naw I'm OK weather you believe that or snot!
turfmanphil
I find this in-salting we are 80 grand down-slope
8clarets8
I'm sorry I just couldn't Alp myself. The Moguls at Santa (Setanta) had a Claus in the contract. I think they should take a running ski-jump it's not as if 80k is Luge change to us is it.
Claretacchio
Surely Setanta is skating on thin ice this reminds me of the waterskate scandal
8clarets8
Whatever the TV companies decide I hope The Clarets win ter next game they play
RickersTwickers
...cos if we don't someone could be for the ski jump !!!
RickersTwickers
ICE say the number of comments below this ARCTICle must be at an all time high. We shall have to hope this is SNOW peak and the comments keep FLOODING in
turfmanphil
I thawght we had just about exhausted this topic. Igloo all want to carry on that's fine by me. Let's hope that if BFC fall behind on Saturday that they can keep Wolves penguined their box. If they don't Owen might have to rink the changes !
RickersTwickers
Where on earth did you all think these up from - some of them are truly awful - in fact, most of them are :-) and thats snow joke!
