A 47-year-old Whitechapel man has firmly reinforced the stereotypical view that people who use the club crest of their favourite football team as their avatar on social media are as thick as congealed Bisto.

As well as using a Liverpool FC club logo on his Facebook page, Nigel Carter, a forklift truck driver, routinely wears a replica Reds shirt to work and his local pub, despite having only the vaguest idea where the city is on a map.

A recent study found that men who openly cleave to a football team in this manner tend to be overweight, single loners with low-paid jobs and even lower self-esteem.

Mr Carter, who has been described as a complete twat and a bellend by acquaintances and family members, has also been known to switch his allegiance to various other clubs mid-season, depending on who is currently topping the English Premier League.

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