YOU’VE heard of Paul the Octopus, and today our friends at the Peterborough Evening Telegraph brought Mackail the Mystic Meerkat to our attention. But mooove over Paul and Mackail, because our very own Carol the Concrete Cow is backing Dons to do the business at London Road.
When presented with the chance of eating grass around either an MK Dons or Posh logo printed out on white A4 paper, the bovine beauty quickly took the Dons option - a clear indication that Karl Robinson’s men will beef up their defence and thwart Posh in their attempts to overturn their 3-2 League One play-off deficit.
Paul the Octopus became famous for predicting 2010 World Cup results from his home at a sea life centre in Germany, and our sister paper in Peterborough has been searching for a lucky omen in the hope of seeing Posh recover from their stadium:mk beating.
They gave Mackail the Mystic Meerkat - named after star striker Craig Mackail-Smith - the chance to eat grapes and apples out of either a ‘Dons’ or ‘Posh’ labelled container, and he picked Posh.
But Carol the Concrete Cow has put a swift end to all Peterborough hopes and we now wait in confidence for her prediction to come true, and for Dons to finish the job.
