"Bye bye, birdie..."

So, goodbye Carrick, hello Zokora. Farewell Bunjevcevic, greetings Berbatov. So long Mido, maybe welcome back, er, Mido...?
And goodbye Chirpy - hello... Road Runner?

"Old" Chirpy was perhaps a little bland, but benign - a cheery, indeed chirpy mascot who you'd never catch brawling with rival pigs (a la Wolves' Wolfie) or snatching another mascot's oversized head and dropkicking it into the crowd (after the fashion of Swansea's infamous Cyril The Swan).

This "New" Chirpy, though, making his White Hart Lane debut for today's Tottenham triumph over the latest Italian "champions"...?

Well, he just looks rather glum and even evil...



This, however, is even more unnecessary and embarrassing. The whiff of weak lemon cordial seeps strongly from the screen...

After checking the last link I can now say with certainty that at least 95 people have way too much time on their hands...

D'you think at the brainstorming for the redesigning of the Chirp-meister anyone dared suggest the best course: "forget the whole thing"

Don't think he'll win the mascot Grand National with that head
