Taking the Mickey
In 1993 former Wrexham and Wales footballing enfant terrible, Mickey Thomas, was given an 18 month jail term for his role in a money forging scam. Instead of setting a good example to youngsters “the Pied Piper of football” was busy supplying them with counterfeit banknotes. Football apprentices being the chief recipients. At the time of his arrest spoof tenners began circulating in north Wales. They showed Mickey Thomas’s face superimposed over that of the queen (see pic). Don’t know about you but, given a choice, I know whose mug I’d prefer to see on my money.
