Be Afridi, Be Very Afridi

with one comment

The dysfunctional firework that is transfer deadline day nowadays once again chucked up a few sparks and then despondently fizzled out into the usual morass of lower league loan deals. The highlight of which was David Sullivan’s boast that Egyptian striker Mido had signed on for the paltry wage of a grand a week, which he delivered with the same misplaced pride that I do when I inform my girlfriend that I’ve snapped up a dozen Pot Noodles for the price of eleven. Perhaps Sullivan doesn’t understand the meaning of a false economy but at least it gives Mido the opportunity to prove to the West Ham fans that he isn’t in actual fact the Shoebomber.

Thank heavens for Shahid Afridi then, a man at the centre of his own transfer inactivity recently at the IPL auction. His exemplary sense of the absurd spares me the need to write any words. I’ll just show you the clip, during which Ian Healy appears to claim that Afridi might land a jail sentence for his mid-match munchings.  As a special bonus DVD extra there’s also some nob running on the pitch for some rugger practice.

  1. Silly beggar.

    Is it us, or does his mate flick a V at the ref at 0:37?

    Perhaps we should be charitable and conclude it was an innocuous gesture caught badly by the camera.
