An Aston Villa fan kept his word in remarkable fashion after betting against the club signing Chelsea legend John Terry.
The Villa fanatic was so convinced the 36-year-old would not be joining Steve Bruce’s side that he took to Twitter with a proposition.
Posting online, Guy Higgins vowed to get Terry’s name permanently stamped onto his backside should the transfer happen.
And well, the Trinity Road season ticket holder’s pledge came back to bite him on the bum, as reported by the Birmingham Mail.
Guy takes up the story.
“I really, really didn’t think he’d sign in a million years,” he said.
“I thought nothing of it when I made the comment.
“Loads of villa fans saved it and brought it back up as the JT story gathered pace.
“I’ll certainly never make any promises like that again, I can assure you of that!”
Guy’s tattoo cost him £40 from Manik Ink in Eddington and took around half an hour this afternoon.
His tattoo features the words John Terry, Captain, Leader, Villan and a message to Villa’s fierce local rivals Blues.
He already had Villa body art in the form of a small lion on his leg and a large lion on his arm.
Guy, who follows Villa home and away, is no stranger to grand claret and blue gestures.
He and wife Lisa were married in a Villa-themed wedding last year.
The couple, who met at an open training session at Villa Park seven years ago when they were introduced to each other by a mutual friend, made sure their beloved club featured on their big day.
Friends recorded good luck messages from Villa players at Bodymoor Heath and Lisa and Guy danced to ‘Hi Ho Silver Lining’ changing the words to ‘Hi Ho Aston Villa’.
The bride wore bespoke claret and blue shoes and Guy even cancelled their original honeymoon to Mauritius because it would have meant them missing too many matches.
