Was Bob Lord Totally Wicked? Well He Is Now!

Was Bob Lord Totally Wicked? Well He Is Now!

Burnley Football Club announced a new 'Totally Wicked' signing on transfer deadline day! No,sadly Michael Owen will not be joining the club but instead the Bob Lord Stand will have a new sponsor. The sponsor is 'Totally Wicked',it really is, that's the name of the company!! Who the heck are they, I hear you ask as did many Clarets fans on Saturday when the news filtered through?! Well they are a local Lancashire-based company specialising in electronic cigarettes of all things and they also market an e-smoking liquid as an alternative to cancer sticks!

There is something rather amusing about the Bob Lord Stand being 'Totally Wicked' considering its reputation for a certain age of Clarets fan more prone to feeling the cold and covering up with blankets and sipping flasks of coffee to keep warm! No, I am not prejudice, I sit in that stand myself but I don't think I could bring myself to start wearing hippy jeans and smoking pot again(allegedly) and going heh man,wicked!! Those of you living locally may well have also noticed the company open up a store in the centre of town and it would appear we will find out more about the sponsorship deal following a formal launch this week.

I wonder if with this cash we will be able to afford another ferking winger!
03/09/2012 18:49:00
Well if we can, let's hope its a winger who can actually play on the wing!

We need someone to take charge A Wing commander maybe. (Promoting fags, and casinos that's a bit wide of the mark, far left or maybe far right.)

Totally Wrecked?

I think following along that theme it could be a good sponsorship deal for ***** and become the Totally ***** Stand, the upper seats being abbrieviated to The Total ***** UP....nurse I maybe in trouble......but I chuckled...

I see that I am not allowed to abbrieviate French Connection UK despite my attempt at humour with the company!!!

Awhhh god I am depressed! ..... can't remember seeing such abject performances for the clarets for years that those of the last week or so, even Daz Bentley through the twitter towel in on the back of them.......disgruntled fans, hideously high ticket prices , usual lets get £7M in and recycle 10% of it back out... awh the short sightedness of it all...... a *****e team and a manager who is refreshingly honest but has now started to to place doubts in many clarets fans mind What are we going to do ? Given TMP and I have have been banging the proverbial " we are under investing " for three seasons now is anyone (only those of you certified as sane) really still believing that the cobbled together lot can achieve anything ..... please convince me that I am a negative cynic and that just around the corner we have the road map to the promised land

Sorry, I have recently been certified as sane, and don't believe that investment automatically equals success. Indeed I would be happier if we hadn't brought home some of the purchases from our shopping trips over the last 3 years. Taking examples, as I am prone to do, from further afield, it's easy enough to find clubs that have invested heavily and failed, as well as clubs who haven't invested heavily and succeeded. There's also Liverpool, who have invested heavily for years, badly underachieved, apart from a League Cup win, and whose owner is now getting it in the neck for trying a different approach to the one that had failed so many times to work, albeit with a manager who had shown what can be done without big investment, but who has gone the other way from his owner, and now wants to spend the sort of money he never previously had! You've got to laugh! In answer to your comment, HC, I don't think you are a negative cynic, nor do I feel any more optimistic than you about the next weeks and months being easy. I even respect your business approach. And if I find the road map I look forward to sharing the journey with you, my friend. It's just not a business approach I can say is guaranteed to have made a difference over recent years, and not one I can feel certain would make a positive difference now.
