Hurray for the Punful Programme Ad!

In these days of slick and clever marketing campaigns it seems that there is no room left for the simple pun in today’s football programme advert… 

Here are some of our favourites from decades that have slipped by…

Sunderland – Do you get it? Head-er? Actually this one doesn’t quite work.

West Ham United – and AVCO Trust are the best ‘match’ of the season. Okay, this one isn’t the strongest either.

Tottenham & Arsenal – and that other ‘team’ London Transport…

Liverpool – and Arrowsmith Travel Agents are both ‘favourites in Europe’. See?

Chelsea – are ‘Going Up’ just like Ratcliff Tailifts… that’s a better one.

Bovril – come up with the best one, somehow managing to ram two puns into a short slogan. Well done.

If you like a punny prog ad then you should probably buy the retro-footy-grumble-fest ‘Got, Not Got’… runner-up in this year’s Footy Book of the Year, and this Xmas’s must-have stocking filler. Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here
