Pizza War: Man Utd v Arsenal

Thursday, October 28, 2004

The rivalry continues off the pitch with this latest article. The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper joined forces with Pizza Hut to offer its readers tokens for purchasing the newly created 'Flaming Fergie' and 'Wenger Wobbler' pizzas.

The creation named in honour of the United boss was described as a "fiery feast that will knock your head off," a reference to Ferguson's notoriously short temper. Anyone eating a pizza bearing Wenger's name was assured of an "explosive Mediterranean experience". Meanwhile, a Pizza Hut spokesman said: "Unfortunately, we are not able to supply any sour grapes."
