Newcastle launches Whey Aye Man – Does it make our top five football merchandise disasters?
If signing a sponsorship deal with a payday loan company wasn’t bad enough, Newcastle United has gone one better with the latest addition to the club Megastore – Whey Aye Man.
October 11th, 2012
The superhero costume, yours for just £49.99 (plus an extra fiver for the wig), is sure to be a hit on Tyneside – possibly. Anyway, it got us thinking – what other tat can you find in Premier League megastores these days? Can it top Whey Aye Man for downright terribleness? Here is our top five:
Everton FC Toast Stamp
Toast is brilliant and, if you’re a die-hard Toffee, why not make it even more brilliant by using this toast stamp to imprint the initials of your favourite team? You can even gift wrap it for an extra £6!
Chelsea Ice Scraper
Winter is coming and Chelsea FC have thought of you hard-pressed motorists. We can only imagine the likes of Terry, Lampard, Hazard et al using this CFC ice scraper to clear the windscreen from their Bentley’s and Aston Martins.
Arsene Wenger Gnome
Let Arsene Wenger cast his eye over your garden and make key tactical decisions whilst you wonder why, even though your garden looks fantastic, it’s still not the envy of your neighbours. Yes, you can get an Arsene Wenger gnome from the Arsenal megastore, if that really is your thing.
Nothing says sophistication like Liverpool FC vino. This trio of red, white and rose should go down a treat with meat or fish – probably.
FC Barcelona Crisps
Finally, over to Spain where we set our eyes on Barça crisps. No, we’ve got no idea what flavour they are.
