Blackburn's New Striker

Blackburn FC have been forced to apologise to its fans today after completing the signing of the wrong person, in a desperate attempt to sign Brazilian superstar Ronaldinho.

Instead they managed to sign an 87 year old, former butcher, called Ronald Eno. Most alarmingly they seem to a have agreed to pay the retiree £130k a week.

The Blackburn lawyers are now desperately trying to back out of the deal, however Eno has now held a press conference stating he feels ready to play in the Premiership.

Eno's agent Vincent Jones, 94 and partly deaf, shouted his way through the press conference and ended with "My boy will bag at least a brace of scores for the gang, now everyone be quiet, Deal or No Deal is on".

A club spokesman commented "in hindsight the contractual demands for soup and a nap at halftime should have been a clue".

Interestingly, his older brother Rob was signed by Manchester City in a spending spree in 2008.
