Corporate execs welcome news that liking football ‘no longer compulsory’
Impressionable middle-managers were cock-a- hoop last night as it emerged that football has finally gone ‘off trend’.
A report by the much respected Association of Corporate Yes Men claims football has been down-listed, so supporting a City or a United is no longer obligatory. The news means millions of executives, business leaders and even minor celebrities can stop pretending to be fans of ‘the people’s game’.
‘I feel a weight has been lifted from my shoulders, the pressure to retain information about football was getting me down’, said Timothy Hammersley, a TV executive from North London. ‘I had to remember who pretended to support what, and whether that made us rivals. It’s a massive relief to finally have permission to talk to my underlings without expressing an opinion about Arsene Wenger.’
Trend-setters are yet to reveal what The Next Big Thing will be, but it is hoped that whatever it is, it won’t require Alan Hansen to talk about it.Click to send this story to a friend
