More Madness As Indian Club Issue Apology To Bray Wanderers Over Club Logo

Here's a tip: if you would like to see your town trend across all social media platforms and become the major talking point of the day, then release a rambling, sloppy, randomly-capitalised statement comparing your local county council to North Korea while promising to cast off the chains of your oppressors and assuring that fear has no place at the football club that represents the area.

The Bray Wanderers saga lurched into outright farce today as the chairman Gerry Mulvey launched an utterly bonkers broadside at the Wicklow County Council, over what he believes is their failure to re-zone the Carlisle Grounds in order to fund an academy that will somehow become the envy of the football world.

It's well worth a read in full as it might be the #GreatestOfficialStatementByAFootballClubInTheWorld.

The Wicklow County Council, have managed to interrupt their head-scratching to pen a statement in response. North Korea have yet to respond to requests for comment.

Bray's day has now plunged to further depths of absurdity, as newly-formed Indian club Kerala Evergreen have apologised to the club over the eerie similarities of their logo. The club launched this week, and are the first club with foreign ownership to join the I-League.

Here are the respective logos:

The club's official account - now without an avatar - tweeted an apology and an explanation:

What a day.

As a random aside, now that we are loosely on this topic, we would like to flag the similarities in the logos of the FAI and the Israeli Football Association:
