We’re all pleased that we’re getting rid of the yellow-streaked monstrosity that was last season’s kit, but there’s something else that we need changed before August comes along.
Am I the only person who is thoroughly freaked out by the current appearance of our mascot ‘Chirpy’? When the Chirpster first burst onto the scene, he looked like a more endearing version of Foghorn Leghorn. Witness the photographic evidence.
Then Chirpy was re-imagined and it all went horribly wrong. These days Chirpy has the sort of blank, vacant look in his eye normally associated with a serial killer. Check out the horrifying images below.
We’re assured of a new kit next season, but when will we get a new mascot that doesn’t give our children nightmares?
