    Shamrock Rovers new signing!

    Shamrock Rovers manager Roddy Collins sends scouts out around the world looking for a new striker to hopefully win Rovers the Premier division.
    One of his scouts informs him of a young Iraqi striker who he thinks will turn out to be a true superstar. So Roddy flies to Iraq to watch him, is suitably impressed and arranges for him to come over to the new grounds in Tallaght.

    Two weeks later Rovers are 4-0 down at home to Dublin City with only 20
    minutes left and Collins gives the young Iraqi the nod to go on. The lad
    is a sensation, scores 5 in 20 minutes and wins the game for Rovers.

    The fans are delighted, the players and coaches are delighted and the media
    love the new star. When he comes off the pitch he phones his Mum to tell
    her about his first day in Irish football. "Hi Mum, guess what?" he says. "I played for 20 minutes today, we were 4-0 down, but I scored 5 and
    we won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the players and the media, they all love me".

    "Great," says his Mum, "let me tell you about my day. Your father got shot in the street, your sister and I were attacked and beaten, and your brother has joined a gang of looters, while you were having a great time".The young lad is very upset. "What can I say Mum, I'm so sorry."

    "Sorry?!" says his Mum ..."Its your bloody fault that we moved to Tallaght in the first place"!

    One thing worse than the fookin joke are the debates about how old it is.... btw At least 15, originally about the scousers....
