Neither of the players involved

There was controversy in East Yorkshire this morning when local newspaper, The Hull Daily Mail, made a terrible howler when reporting on injured Hull City defender Moses Odubajo.

The 'newspaper', its 'almost-correctness' almost legendary, was covering a story on the 2-year lay-off due to a knee injury that the full-back has had to endure, and speculated on his return.

They also published a photo of him. Or rather, they didn't.

What they did do instead, was publish a photo of Mr Odubajo's Tigers team-mate, Adama Diomandé.

To me, the players look completely different; their hairstyles are different, their faces are different, and their builds are different - Odubajo is an extremely lean and athletic-looking player, whilst Diomandé could do to lose a few pounds. In fact, the only similarity between the two men is that they both look a bit similar when they pull their Hull City shirts on.

The report, which can be googled by entering 'Adkins waits on return date for City's Odubajo', appeared in the HDM on Wednesday 25th April, and was immediately posted to the Hull City Fans Forum, where I spotted it

I quickly dashed-off an email to the HDM, but, thus far, there has been no response.

The bastards.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
