SoI was watching the tedious that is the Carling Cup last night and one thing threw me -
Bury's sponsors - The local council!
Now I'm sure that some engagement officer would argue that this was a valuable use of taxpayers' money but c'mon a sponsorship? What people are watching the telly in Bury and going: "Of course the Council! Thank god I saw their logo otherwise I wouldn't have known they existed!"
Also why is a council promoting itself on a footy top? Is it expecting Bolton or Rochdale to make a play for its customers, sorry I mean citizens?
