The Daily Telegraph Goes Back To The Future

euro 20008 The Daily Telegraph Goes Back To The Future

What’s wrong with this picture above? Either The Daily Telegraph has a magic crystal ball where they can predict what’s going to happen at Euro 20008 or maybe reporter Jeremy Wilson had a few drinks too many in Zurich?

    I don’t get it…what is wrong with the picture? France and Italy are hoping Holland knock Romania out of contention by beating them, so…how is that predicting the future?

  2. Utd fan says:

    I’m confused too…

    The only thing I can think is that maybe he’s referring to a grammatical error. Does the “their” technically refer to Holland and not France/Italy? Maybe that’s what he’s talking about…? That still doesn’t really make sense, though.

    The date says 20,008. Took me about 4 readings to I clicked it.

  4. lee hendricks says:

    euro champs *would* fall in 20008, for what it’s worth. and i don’t think continental drift would be an issue quite so soon…

  5. Django says:

    ZING!

  6. The Gaffer says:

    The Daily Telegraph has now caught their mistake and fixed their headline. 2008 is definitely better than 20008.

    Cheers,
    The Gaffer
