    Think it could have gone for more without the strange low reserve.

    +1 Saw it had a reserve yesterday, assumed it would be higher than that (or why have one?) so couldn't be bothered opening the bidding. Then forgot about it.

    This does seem like a bargain, could be a nice flip to the right end user.

    Yes, also bid to about £70 and got the reserve message and just though it would be a lot higher, so gave up.

    Also, surprised that it went so cheap considering there did seem to be some interest and comments regarding it a few weeks ago.

    But if you do pronounce it you don't know if its footie or footy.

    It is cheap but instantly fails any radio test.

    Like that it looks like footsie but agree confusion over footy or footie

    Especially since search volume is 5-to-1 in favour of footy. Google Keyword tool is not an exact measure, but that kind of ratio is at least indicative of preference.

    That's exactly why we didn't have a go. If it had been for the pair of footie/footy then maybe we'd be interested, but it's too easily confused.
