image for Man Utd In Marseille Sock Crisis
Will Shoes Become As Popular As Socks? Only Time Will Tell.

Just in. Manchester United arrived in Marseille for their Champions League round of sixteen clash without socks, following a cock-up by the head kit man.

Insiders say that the error means that the only socks the United party have available are the ones they are wearing. A United official stated that the team won't actually be playing without socks because that would contravene UEFA regulations, and explained that plans are afoot to have plenty of socks flown out from Manchester airport.

Just to be on the safe side, a junior United official has been pounding the streets of the French port, scouring local sportswear outlets for United socks, but admitted that United may end up taking to the field wearing either purple or pink socks, as they are the only colours available in sufficient quantities.

Socks have been prominent in news items recently, although nobody really seems to know why.

Make Skoob1999's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
