Sunderland FC and the Iraqi minister of information
Another Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf kiss of death
News of another of Iraqi information minister Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf's blinding predictions comes to us via www.nufc.com, a non-official website dedicated to UK footie outfit Newcastle United.
The lads and/or ladettes behind this site have for some time been running a clock at the top of the home page counting down how long bitter (and currently struggling) rivals Sunderland have left in the Premiership. It currently stands at 30 days, 0 hours, 20 minutes, and 50 seconds or thereabouts.
And if that wasn't provocative enough, what about this prediction - presumably recorded earlier in the season - from none other than Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf?:
Sunderland supporters please direct all vitriol/abuse/constructive criticism to www.nufc.com. I for one am a Leicester City supporter (no laughter please - note current position in Division One) and as such am entirely neutral in matters of North-Eastern football politics. And yes, it's because of my name.
If you want more of Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, we believe that www.welovetheiraqiinformationminister.com is finally back up and running.
