When you consider the people that are usually associated with bringing out football 'gaffes and goals' type DVDs right before Christmas, Olly Murs might not seem like the most obvious choice to front one, given he's more well known for his music. However, even in spite of his recent presenting stint for 'The Xtra Factor' on ITV2 with Caroline Flack more than proving his worth in that field, he has more of a footballing background than people might be aware of.
He played mid-fielder professionally for his local club Witham Town F.C, and is a massive Manchester United fan. In between touring and promoting he was in Robbie Williams' team at Soccer Aid last year, and he still finds time to play with his amateur team Notley F.C. And thus we find ourselves at this DVD, '7 Deadly Sins of Football', where Olly introduces clips in his inimitable style of football's key figures that are well renowned for their greed, their laziness, their anger and much more besides, whilst getting in opinions from commentators at talkSPORT Radio.
Even though I'm not particularly au fait with football myself, even I had to laugh at some of the clips just from a pure humour angle - I won't mention names, but one involving an Aston Villa player and the random appearance of a beach ball on the pitch right before a goal was one of them! Overall, a kitsch but funny DVD that should make for an entertaining hour over the festive period.
