"You can have one thing from Tesco, Jimmy, and no sweets or toys."
(child points to this week's Big Farts Magazine)
"You can have Match Of The Day."

I'm guessing you, like me*, are spectacularly unqualified to speak on behalf of little boys who like football.

I support Chelsea, so no, I don't like football.

I'm kind of curious how the marketing meeting went for this.
"We don't want to market the property into a niche where the only readers are men in their fifties so we're updating his look and setting it in the modern day and it will be published in Match of the Day magazine."

I'm shocked that they didn't put it in "Shoot" magazine, where it would sit nicely in between the full page photo of Tony Cottee and a "flops of the season" article debating whether Robert Fleck or Neil Webb deserved that accolade.

It has been some time since I was the target market, though.
