In an unexpected development that will shock many supporters, tonight’s football has been declared on. As the story was broke by Sky Sports News, a representative of Manchester City said “We realise this will cause disruption for fans and is shocking news but we had to take notice of the conditions. We hope this won’t inconvenience too many people. The referee had a good look at the pitch and declared it fit to host the game. Outside we were all taken aback by how effective a shovel can be and we’re going to pass the benefit of our experience on to other Premier League clubs.”
However, Ian of Stockport complained “This is ridiculous; it’s almost unheard for a Premier League game to actually go ahead. I’d made other plans, I’ve got presents to wrap, and will now have to change everything at the last minute. The supporters are the last people they think of.”
On Merseyside, feelings were chirpier about the astonishing news “I’m over the moon. Everton actually have a good chance of getting a player in the Premier League team of the week. These chances don’t come along often and I hope we make the most of it. If we win, we’ll only be a point behind Blackpool and they’d have to win their two games in hand to change that”
