Burnley Football Club announced a new ‘Totally Wicked’ signing on transfer deadline day! No,sadly Michael Owen will not be joining the club but instead the Bob Lord Stand will have a new sponsor. The sponsor is ‘Totally Wicked’..no,it really is, that’s the name of the company!! Who the heck are they, I hear you ask as did many Clarets fans on Saturday when the news filtered through?! Well they are a local Lancashire-based company specialising in electronic cigarettes of all things and they also market an e-smoking liquid as an alternative to cancer sticks!
There is something rather amusing about the Bob Lord Stand being ‘Totally Wicked’ considering its reputation for a certain age of Clarets fan more prone to feeling the cold and covering up with blankets and sipping flasks of coffee to keep warm! No, I am not prejudice, I sit in that stand myself but I don’t think I could bring myself to start wearing hippy jeans and smoking pot again(allegedly) and going heh man,wicked!! Those of you living locally may well have also noticed the company open up a store in the centre of town and it would appear we will find out more about the sponsorship deal following a formal launch this week.
