The new manager of Liverpool football club sent scouts out around the world
Looking for a new center forward to replace his old and decrepit players
In the hope of winning the league.
One of his scouts informed him of a young Iraqi soccer player who he thinks
will turn out to be a true superstar.
The manager flies out to Baghdad to watch him play and is suitably impressed
and arranges for him to come to Liverpool.
Two week later and Liverpool are 4 to 1 down ManU and only 20 minutes to the end of the game,
The manager gives the young Iraqi the nod and on to the pitch he goes.
The lad is a sensation and scores 4 goals in 20 minutes and wins the match for Liverpool.
The fans are delighted; the players and management are delighted, and so to are the media who think the new player is fantastic.
When the players leave the pitch he phones his mother to tell her about his first game in the premiership.
Hello mum, guess what? “I played for 20 minutes today, and we were 3 goals down but I scored 4 goals and we won the game.
“Everybody loves me, they think I am a great player”
Wonderful says his mum “now let me tell you about my day
Your father got shot in the street
Your sister and I were ambushed and beaten up
And your brother has joined a gang of looters
while you were out having a good time”
The lad was very upset and said sorry to his poor mother.
“Sorry” says his mum, “your fucking sorry???
“It’s your entire fault
we moved to Liverpool in the first place”
