Something out of nothing

You don't have to be an Einstein to figure out that the blogging world will no doubt be full of jokes after the news that Wayne Rooney has signed a five volume book deal worth some 5 million quid.

How many other people at the age of 20 have been given five volume autobiography book deals? More importantly, how on earth is the fellow going to fill up five volumes.

That's where Eski Kanka Jim and I come in. With the advertising revenue from this blog not being enough to allow us to retire just yet, this could be a great opportunity. My guess is that this is a ghostwriters' dream and hacks in England must have already started lining up for the job.

But just how many of them have the experience of conjuring something out of nothing (which surely will be the job of whoever has to ghostwrite this). Eski Kanka and myself are experts at conjuring something out of nothing.

Surely anyone who writes a blog about Ankara football where the actual analysis of actual games is practically nothing is perfectly suited to such a job.

Once we get the job I can assure you we shall leave no stone unturned. Rooney's feelings on wearing the three lions shirt, his views on the development of the game in Australia and I know that Eski Kanka is definately interested in Rooney's view on whether former Ankaragucu goalkeeper Zalad's efforts in the 8-0 loss to Galatasaray in the final match of the season that allowed Galatasaray to win the league more than a decade ago were actually indicative of the man's talents.

I'm dusting off the CV now.

    Yes. I would definitely like to be involved in this project. Perhaps I can focus on his private life and show the world that all is not as it appears. Deep down beneath that aggressive exterior lurks a heart of gold and this is where my article will home in on. Please let me know when the contracts are ready to be drawn up Chris and I'll begin with his childhood as a regular church goer and a member of the Boy Scouts. Can't wait for more fame !!! Hey, maybe we can do Luvvlie David Beckham after nice sweet Wayne ???
    All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
