This story from the Unibond site had me checking the calender to make sure it wasn’t the 1st April again.
Leigh Genesis. Leigh fucking Genesis?
What’s going on with football? This sort of thing you have begun to expect in the upper echelons of the game, but this is the fucking NPL. Would you check out some of these quotes from the press release:
“sports brand Nike whose image complimented perfectly the effect we wanted to achieve.”
“Ideas of colour were professionally developed into a striking, versatile and contemporary logo which formed the core of the new brand.”
“Recently appointed, visionary Chairman Dominic Speakman, 32,”
“Genesis fits perfectly with the club image on several levels; a meaning of ‘New Beginning, Origin & Creation’ being the most important, it has a contemporary edge and is unique in the world of football. It is miles away from the American ‘animal’ and doesn’t join the usual ‘Cities or Uniteds’ which gives it a chance of making a real mark in non-league football.”
Football has been dead for some time. This is just ‘visionary Chairman’ Dominic Speakman shafting its cold, rotten corpse. I feel for the fans of Leigh RMI, and I’ll feel for them some more when this whole thing goes horribly wrong. Which it will. It has to.
Any right thinking person, let alone football fan, will be hoping and praying that ‘Leigh Genesis’ are put out of our misery as quickly as possible.
And as a completely point missing aside, “Genesis fits perfectly with the club image on several levels” – What? Offensive, Phil Collins driven, Dad Rock?
Speakman, you are an unspeakable idiot.
