    David Ginola, Manchurian Candidate

    Hark now here the angels sing!!! David Ginola wants the throne of world football to do good.

    He has a dream.........streets full of urchins with dirty faces.........terraces full of erudite philosophers....... a proper Tango in every match........

    Don't get too excited however, our Laurence Harvey has his Angela Lansbury

    Blatter not Banter!!!! Blatter not Banter!!!! Blatter not Banter!!!! Blatter not Banter!!!!

    Quick, give Sinatra a ring!

    This is just unspeakable. They must know they have zero chance of this getting anywhere, given that he needs the approval of five national FA's to even enter the race. Getting one would be a major achievement.

    Yet they're willing to take people's money as 'pledges' towards their non-starter of a campaign.

      It's basically a global ad campaign for a bookmaking firm masquerading as a gesture "for the good of the game". And all for 2.3m. Said firm know exactly what they're playing at.

      Apparently some people have contributed to the fund. Some people are mugs.

        People contribute to their funds all the time, doing that silly gambling thing.

          They've raised about 5k so far. The rest is their own contribution. So it's not exactly going viral.

          I'd question whether PP know what they're doing here, it feels like one that could backfire on them, they're already getting a pasting in the press from what I've seen. It goes without saying that a marketing campaign shouldn't rely on its target audience being stupid in order to be successful.

            It is very itchy, though.

              Apparently Paddy Power have a 'Head of Mischief', a bantz czar, as it were.

              Imagine making your living as Pat Boone to Michael O'Leary's Elvis.

                It's almost as if the word Gobshite was invented specifically for this sort of situation.
