Birmingham City followers have been left scratching their heads after a blonde haired Russian bloke who was supposed to have been Jesus Christ, ended their world 24 hrs later than had been recently predicted.
Evangelist broadcaster, Harold Camping, had claimed the Son of Man would return to earth resplendent on Saturday to sweep all of his followers up to a never-ending party at his dad's house at approximately 18.00, leaving behind people such as those who worshipped false idols.
Instead, Birmingham City fans found their world came crashing down a whole day later, in Tottenham, North London.
City supporter Mervyn Plummet said he we was shocked, but not disappointed that his city was behind the times.
He told reporters outside White Hart Lane stadium, 'I'm quite impressed it only took us a day to catch up with everyone else whose world should have ended at 18.00 on Saturday.'
'Everyone knows we're years behind even the most basic forms of life up here.'
'So for it to happen at 17.48 on Sunday when Roman Pavlyuchenko stuck one past Ben Foster in injury time to relegate us back into the Championship was a little surprising.'
'We all thought it was supposed to have been Jesus Christ putting the boot in, not some wiry Russian chap with no discernible religious affiliation.'
'Just being right about our world ending would have been enough.'
'Adding the Jesus bit was a stretch too far, he has made himself look a bit of a fool.'
Mr Plummet, however, went on to reiterate the esteem with which he holds the evangelist.
'I certainly placed much more faith in Camping than I ever did in Alex McLeish.'
'Sure he won the league cup, but still, he never instilled the kind of belief in players like someone like Camping would.'
'I mean he's been proven correct, afterall.'
''Fire and brum-stone' I think he called it.'
