'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Seamus and Gazzer Voted Best Value In 2009



In our latest Vital MC Poll we asked 'Which Signing Represents Sparky's Best Business/ Value For Money In 2009?...'

Our Bluesometer registered a terrific response of votes across Sparky's 10 signings this year. The brilliant Shay Given and the outstanding Gareth Barry came in streets ahead of the other players.

Seamus signed from Newcastle back in January for £8m million and Gazzer Bazzer was our first signing this summer in a stealth bomber of a deal from Aston Villa for £12 million.

The unpredictable Liam Gallagher recently accurately described Given's performances as 'biblical.' Meanwhile that other ageing rocker Mark Lawrenson said of Barry: 'Pound for pound Gareth Barry was my best signing after a frantic transfer window of activity.'

The results in full:

Caption Competition: What's Nigel De Jong saying to the Irish Goalkeeping Wizard?
Johnny Baguette
JB - De Jong is saying "Can you give me some goalkeeping tips Shay, as I'm not getting a game in midfield and your understudy Taylor is crap!"
Kevinho
Nigel to Shay ' Looks like you only have to worry about the oppositions strikers now that Dunney has gone'
Buzz Lightyear
Nigel is saying: That's the finest uvula I've ever seen"

Nigel says to Seamus - An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman are sitting in a bar. Suddenly, a fly dives into their beers. The Irishman says, "Barman, a fly just dived into my beer. Bring me another one." The Irishman got another beer. The Englishman says, "Ah, to hell with it," and empties his pint, fly and all. The Scotsman pulls the fly out of his beer, shakes it up and down, and screams, "Spit it out, damn you! Spit it out!"
