SKY's the limit for Barnsey?



In a world exclusive, Vital Burnley can reveal that Martin Barnes, aka Barnsey, editor of the much-loved Burnley fanzine, 'When The Ball Moves...' will be taking part in Sky Sports' quiz show, 'Take it like a fan'.

The programme will be filmed before and after the game tomorrow, as well as during half time. Rumours abound suggesting that he is 'papping it', but these are - as yet - unsubstantiated and most likely untrue.

It is also not clear if any major newspapers were involved in hacking into Mr. Barnes' phone, or whether the police will investigate. Stay tuned...

The only time I have ever seen anything to do with WTBM on the telly was when our not resident self-publicist Alastair Campbell was interviewed before a game with a copy clearly showing in his top pocket. Hopefully Barnsey's appearance will catapult WTBM to deserved world fame.
