Blow me! Cup final gets a trial run

After failing to get tickets to Saturday's FA Cup Final, the directors of Wakefield-based Green Communications decided to recreate the event on a slightly smaller scale.

Liverpool fan Ian Green and (unrelated) West Ham supporter Andy Green will host a 'blow football' tournament, billing it as 'a trial run for the real game'.

Scouser Green said of his colleague: 'Andy's a West Ham nut and very excited about the final.

It's not such a deal for me as Liverpool are always in the FA Cup Final.'

The game starts at lunchtime on Thursday, and Diary points out that the last time a side played West Ham (Spurs last Sunday), the squad was floored by a suspect lasagne.

'Good point,' says Ian. 'To be safe, we'll stick to traditional meat pies.'

Wise man.
