Well, since they made such a song-and-dance (pun intended) of their efforts to get Song For A Crap Striker to the top of the charts for Christmas, I thought it would be instructive to look at exactly where it ended up when everything was said and done.
They got to number 31.
On the official charts.
Not some ITunes equivalent.
This reminds me in many ways of their “Record number of fans at a fourth tier game where a crisp packet blows into one of the goals in the 83rd minute” records of yesteryear.
Hmmmm. “A late challenge.”
Interesting choice of words.
Does it still count as a “challenge” if you finish thirty places from the top?
That sounds to me more like spectacular failure when the whole of the national media is helping to promote you, Sky Sports News included.
Not even the help of Crystal Palace fans and others (who’ve been using the song since before Sevco was born) did any good in the “final push.”
Who else thinks these guys should stick to harassing journalists and bloggers? Sending threatening tweets to the followers of an all-girl group clearly provided some momentary amusement for these people, but now they can get back to business as usual.
This has gone a little bit like their league challenge did.
A feeble effort, supported by the media, and where they’ve finished so far off the pace they’re little more than a dot in the rear-view mirror.
How sad that this, like that, had to end in such ignominy.
The Festive Season hasn’t brought much cheer to them so far, has it?
And they still have the Hogmany Horror to come.
In Brendan (and the official chart countdown) we trust!
