We’ve got another round of Whose Career Is It Anyway? this week and informally I’m calling it Whose Career Is It Anyway? – Why Can’t We All Get Along? edition. I’m leaving that there and not expanding on it because there’s a teeny tiny bit of a clue in there and if I say any more, my big mouth will give away more than I want to.
Whatever silly name I’m giving it, the object of the game remains the same. Tell us which football player’s career is being represented by the flags stuck in the map below. The yellow flags – as they always do – represent clubs that this person played for during his or her senior career – either on loan or on permanent deals. The orangey flags don’t represent the areas of Britain with the highest sales of fake tan per capita (hmmm … but now that I mention it, it does look like it might be remarkably accurate), the orange flags actually represent clubs this person played for in informal/non-competitive games – during a certain period . This part is a little bit vague, but I’ve cobbled together a list of clubs from certain online encyclopaedias and blogs with no obligation to fact-check and I’m running with that.
So yellow = permanent, orange = non-competitive and a wee bit dubious – best of luck.
Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with or without the subject line ‘Where Is The Love?’ You’re allowed to have more than one guess, but don’t take the piss by cutting and pasting loads and loads of names into an email. DO NOT USE THE COMMENTS SECTION FOR SUBMITTING YOUR ANSWERS. The comments section is for people to ask if they’re right and me to ignore them, the occasional pointing out of the obvious flaw in my competitions and perhaps the odds compliment – although that is yet to happen.
The prize is a €/£50 Free Bet right now, but if you successfully pimp this competition around the internet, it should grow into something bigger and better. For every retweet of this tweet or share on Facebook, LinkedIn or the other social networks about 4 people use, we’ll add one Europound to the prize. Then, next Tuesday, I’ll go through all the correct answers and if there happens to be more than one, pick a winner in a raffle-style draw.
Get your answers in before 10am on Tuesday 14th February and I’ll announce the winner soon after. For one person it’ll more than make of for the loneliness/expensive scam of another Valentine’s Day for everyone else it’ll merely highlight how unlucky you are in love and/or finding a restaurant charging £35 for a slice of cold garlic bread, a plate of carbonara and a Celine Dion Greatest Hits CD playing in the background. I’ll be available via the comments section or on twitter where I’m @PaddyPowerAidan to discuss any questions you may have about the competition or indeed romance.
Best of luck
