Something to briefly cheer you up

Comments (12)

I know that we are all feeling down after recent results so I thought that this might cheer you up (if only momentarily).

During the World Cup I posted a Mailbag item about there being no escape in Australia from adverts staring Tim Cahill. Well he?s back again, this time on the front cover of FIFA 11 computer game ? in the starring central role between Kaka and Rooney. Surprisingly he?s not in his Australian shirt (I believe Landon Donavan is in the USA shirt for the American version), but in this season?s Everton shirt. More exposure for us!

Here?s a link to a shop selling it so you can see for yourself:

Not sure how far the distribution is for this cover ? but it wouldn?t be beyond the realms of possibility that it covers most of Asia Pacific is it? Even if it makes people wonder for a second about what team Tim plays for ? at least it?s a second longer than what they might think about Everton.

Well hope that made you smile for a second.

Brave effort, Jip.

Prevailing mood here is, "All is lost. We're doomed."

$118.95 is a bit steep for a game even if it includes Free Shipping.

Only 71 quid? The game here in HK will be sold for about 29 Sterling.

It's nuts how much you guys have to pay for video games!

The price is about 35 quid here, but most supermarkets release it for 30 quid initially, so it isn't that expensive

Jip, thanks for the info.
I sometimes wonder if poms, specifically those at Goodison appreciate how very popular and potentially money spinning our Timmy is.

This IS good news, though most will no doubt play it down. All we need to do it sign that Oman goalie from Bolton, and we'll have the middle-Eastern market sewn up as well!
