Sky One's show Football Icon, is a complete joke. This guy above called Sam Hurell, he won the first Football Icon programme on Sky One a couple of years ago and he was promised a place in the Chelsea squad, along with a posh 1 million pound house/mansion, a car, and a cash prize.
I have always criticised this show because for one thing, how are you meant to brake into the first team with the likes of Lampard, Ballack or Shevchenko in the team? And secondly, why Chelsea Football Club?
Anyway this guy is supposed to be still playing in the Chelsea's academy, I've know players with less talent to progress faster and further than him.
Does anyone know a Danny Simpson? He was in the academy not long ago, but now he's already had a first team appearance...well several, and this guy who won the football programme hasn't even had a sniff of a first team appearance at Chelsea.
What alot of EDITED I'm sure they'll do a Manchester United Football Icon this time around, unless those TV producing idiots down London all support Chelsea and would prefer to shoot their jokable "football X factor type" shows in London.
Don't worry Sam, it's not your fault that you havent had a sniff of a chance at Chelsea, because the owner and manager are too busy buying foreign exports instead of investing in british youth, come to United and you'll be guaranteed a chance because that's what seperates us from many other clubs. At United you're always given a chance!
