MARKETING MIX: Football Crazy - First-class delivery by Donkeys

The bookmakers have stopped taking bets on Manchester United to win the title, but after Saturday’s defeat at Sheffield Wednesday maybe Arsenal or Liverpool can still catch them.

The bookmakers have stopped taking bets on Manchester United to win

the title, but after Saturday’s defeat at Sheffield Wednesday maybe

Arsenal or Liverpool can still catch them.

Jonathan De Mello of Royal Mail will be hoping that they can. His team,

De Mell’s Donkeys, top the Football Crazy weekly table with 29 points,

winning him a Football Crazy polo shirt.

Paul Ince was in outstanding form in Liverpool’s 2-1 win over Bolton

Wanderers. His goal and assist makes him our Football Crazy Player of

the Week.

If relegation-threatened Everton want to blame someone for their 2-1

defeat at Southampton then Slaven Bilic is a prime candidate. His clumsy

challenge on Egil Ostenstad gave away a penalty, earned Bilic a red card

and made him our Loon of the Week.

In the overall league, Brendan McElroy of Boots (453 points) has

extended his lead to ten points. For overall and this week’s player
