Sick as a parrot, jumpers for goalposts

By February 2, 2010News

Bozza has this week joined Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Wembley Stadium chiefs to lead London’s 2018 FIFA World Cup bid.

He has been appointed chair of London United, the group leading the capital’s contribution to the England 2018 Fifa World Cup bid.

Arsenal Football Club chief executive Ivan Gazidis, Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy and Wembley Stadium managing director Roger Maslin have been unveiled as other members of the London United team, which is supported by England 2018 and London council representatives.

FA chairman Lord Triesman said: “We are delighted that the Mayor has decided to chair London United. It demonstrates that the bid has political support at the highest level and that London is fully committed to bringing the World Cup to England.”

Bozza responded with a quote he lifted directly from The Big Book Of Football Cliches.  He said: “I am delighted London is included as part of England’s bid to host the World Cup in 2018.  We have brought together a crack new team to build on the first stage of the bid and get that first goal in the back of the net.”

Game of two halves, innit?
