German fans hijack Wembley vote

German football fans have been voting to name the bridge at the new Wembley Stadium after Dietmar Hamann who scored the last goal at the old stadium.

London Mayor Ken Livingstone had asked people to post suggestions for the bridge's name on .

And German fans are taking it as an opportunity to pay back the English for beating them in the 1966 World Cup finals at the stadium.

The final shortlist of names is due to be presented on March 21 and German newspapers are urging readers to visit the site over the next week to cast their votes for Hamann "in tribute to the player who scored the last goal in the old stadium".

The German move follows news the Australians are reportedly trying a similar thing, with an email circulating calling on Aussies to vote for the bridge to be named after former rugby captain John Eales.
Liverpool fans have been voting for it all week, (a) because Didi's a Liverpool player and (b) because it'll be so funny to have a part of Wembley named after a German with the amount of tw*ts who still equate games of football with the Second World War supporting England.
Sorry DB, I just could not resist. I have just cast my vote for Dietmar :D

It does not really matter as Red Ken is now back in the Neu Arbeit Labour Party and consultation to them means, as we all know, ask the people then do what we want to do. :twisted:

p.s. Vote for Jim Baxter, best game of keepie up ever.
Vote "Oliver Finegold" - the journo who he recently got his teeth into.

But blimey, it's a foootbridge from a platform in the station. Name that bridge - what an arrse !.
Boby Moore Bridge, for obvious reasons:
