The Football Pink Issue 10
The time has come to climb to the top of Mount Sinai (or in this case, log onto your internet) and receive the Ten Commandments as dictated by God, Himself (for the purpose of this Bible-inspired advertising pitch, that’s me – Editor).
The tenth edition of The Football Pink is devoted – chapter and verse – to the theme of the Ten Commandments:
I: I AM THE LORD THY GOD, THOU SHALT NOT HAVE ANY OTHER GODS BEFORE ME – Gods and men (and football)
II: THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE – The standing of statues
III: THOU SHALT NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE LORD THY GOD IN VAIN – Le God, Le Tissier
IV: REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY – Sacred Sundays
V: HONOUR THY FATHER AND MOTHER – The paradox of Josef Bican
VI: THOU SHALT NOT KILL – Murder most fowl
VII: THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT ADULTERY – Attitudes towards wayward players
VIII: THOU SHALT NOT STEAL – Pep Guardiola the Thief
IX: THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST THY NEIGHBOUR – L’Affaire Tapie
X: THOU SHALT NOT COVET – Treacherous tycoons
Each article is fantastically illustrated, and to top it off, we pay a visit to the Holy Land to look at how Jews and Arabs come together peacefully in their towns and villages to enjoy football.
