DIARY: McCall prepares staff for World Cup turf war

As adland gears up for complete World Cup fever, one football-mad managing director, Poulter Partners' Gary McCall, has combined his footie obsession with facing the fact that no-one will be doing any work during the matches, and has turfed his office with real grass and football nets.

Mad McCall has also put his balls on the line by saying that if England win the World Cup, he'll pay a bonus of £25,000 to his staff. Just have to hope no-one else falls out of the squad, then.
