    The image on the poster was made/sent to me by the tpf-london agency officer, so it’s not from google or any other sources. Thanks for your concern Tim 🙂

    This is not the recognisable british bird on the poster. Was this an error on Google images or is our own too associated with garden violence and burglary?

    I saw this ad on the tube yesterday and I thought the exact same thing. I can’t find any reference to these ads other than on here and a couple of other club-related blogs for the Villa, Arsenal and Fulham ads.

    Someone’s head needs to roll for this. I’m taking this shit to the highest court in the land.

    I think it’s a blackbird that’s been photoshopped in magpie colours for some bizarre reason.

    Tim Jones, You are right! The bird on the poster is a Oriental Magpie Robin, common in parts of Asia, famous for its song but a Pica Pica it is not.
