It's 2011. That means re-election time for Andrew Conn, Linfield's self-styled "Media Officer". That means propaganda masquerading as news on www.andyconn.com , aka the Linfield Official Website . Follow the self-promotion here! VOTE MICHAEL LITTLE! VOTAIL ANDREW CONN! VOTE FOR 3 MORE YEARS OF THE SAME INANE DROSS!
UPDATE 31/3/11: Ever keen to please and appear as man of the people, Andrew, following an email request, decides a Facebook appeal to win a wedding dress is worthy of inclusion on Linfield's Official Website. To wit:
"Anyhow, my reason for emailing is to ask for Linfield to return a favour for me...
...having recently got engaged over the summer (To an avid Linfield fan of course), we started making plans for our wedding...
However a competition appeared on Facebook to which I entered... It is for me to win my wedding dress and the winner is chosen upon whichever bride has the most 'likes' on her comment (fb jargon)!!
So this is why I am emailing your fine (I'm assuming) self...
I hope that as a 'thank you' for my involvement in your 125th Anniversary service that you will be able to help me out by posting the links on ur website (or at least on the forum).
This is what would needed to be included...
Vote for KATHERINE KENNEDY to win her wedding dress by logging onto your facebook account, searching for Joshua Thomas Bridal Emporium and liking that page. Then to make your vote count you must go to the picture of Prince William and Kate and scroll down until you find a comment by KATHERINE KENNEDY explaining how she met her 'prince'...you must like this comment and then your vote has been cast! :D Voting closes Friday 1st April 7pm.
I understand that official websites don't like to have 'junk' clogging up their wall, but perhaps you could make an exception for me due to my recent involvement with the club, and my families life-long involvement with the club! (I have attached a link to this email of the write up written about the 125th service so you know I'm not spoofin') http://www.linfieldfc.com/event.asp?eid=6465"
And what is the girl's connection to Linfield FC? She sang in the 125th Anniversary Church service.
Coming soon on the Official Site: an 11 year-old occasional ball-boy's sponsorship appeal to all Linfield fans for his 'sponsored silence'.
Words fail me.
UPDATE 4/2/11: Herr Conn, it seems, has set up his own Twitter feed. Follow his moves at #connmanlfc !
Linfield Legend returns, very newsworthy, what with the upcoming Dundalk game. Nice to see photos too. Wait a minute, who's THIS guy on the left???
Not to worry, the article clearly spells out who this gentleman is:
"Linfield Media Officer and Management Committee member Andy Conn"
Aha, glad we cleared that one up. Very photogenic, now I see why we needed a photo of him, clearly a Windsor mover and shaker!
More updates, I mean propaganda, to follow...
4/12/10 Linfield beat the big freeze - UPDATED WITH PHOTOS
A big photo session of Linfield players training at a local gym. Which just happens to be a certain MC member (who is soon up for re-election)'s place of work. Pats on back all round.
