Earlier this week a gauntlet was laid down. A naive Firebox customer service temp, drunk on his own bravado, challenged the most established footballers in the company to a duel of epic proportions.
On the left, representing Main Office Football Orient (MOFO) we have Ben Redhead. Buyer at Firebox. A hero. A legend. The people's champion. A pressure cooker waiting to explode.
Representing 'Athletico Blobfish' and sneering down his anxious nostrils is Richie Fletcher. Customer Service Temp. A big-mouth. An upstart. A scoundrel. A fearless and foolhardy renegade if ever there was one. A modern-day Spartacus*
On Thursday 28th of November 2013 we'll find out who takes the glorious victory spoils and who sees out the rest of this Christmas season in silent shameful agony.
*our customer service team are not slaves.
