10 Yetis Laughs as "Fatty" Lampard Gets 1st Dedicated Mobile Phone TV Channel

You have to laugh when even the national newspapers refer to Frank Lampard of Chelsea being called "Fatty" by rival supporters in a piece that is nothing to do with him actually playing football.

A nice puff piece for Orange today in the national papers about Jose's Special midfielder being the first Premiership footballer to have his own dedicated TV channel, albeit on the mobile phone networks only.

Apparently Frank is doing it as he wants to show fans that footballers lead normal lives and the channel will depict his daily lifestyle. Hmm, I don't know any of my friends who have their own dedicated TV channel, although a few of them should!

How long is it until Gary Neville gets his own charismatic channel?

Still, good on old Fatty Lampard, at least he is doing it for the right reasons and not cos he got paid a wedge of money!
