Atlético Madrid: Europa League Champions
Congratulations are due to Atlético Madrid on their shiny new Europa League Championship silverware. Unfortunately, the city of Madrid’s other team sealed the EPL’s trophy-less fate in European club competitions this season, much to the dismay of the Fulham boys.
Where should the Cottagers fix the blame for their loss? Diego Forlan’s abs.
Sure, his midsection flashes are as predictable as a little black dress on a night out, but they match with everything and are a true wardrobe staple. At last count, we examined eight flexing members of his toned pack – meaning that even an unusually low-key night in with these bad boys would be good company and fun.
To that we say, chin up Fulham, you did yourselves proud. Also, get to strippin’ next club season.
If you missed the Europa League conclusion, then you didn’t have a chance to see Sergio Agüero’s son, Ben, perched on his momma’s lap. Although Giannina Maradona and ‘Kun’ are no longer together, it’s always nice to see that parents can still be civil when raising an edible piece of baby pretzel pie.
