Best Gimp Walk II: David Beckham v. Ashley Cole

Nursing an injury can be quite a chore. We wouldn’t know, of course, because we’re too busy wallowing in our Celine Dion sorrows to keep up with the status of two of England’s top players’ World Cup stampy-making injuries. So, what’s a Kickette to do other than critique which bum leg is best?
Sadly, it seems, both David Beckham and Ashley Cole’s style selections took a nose dive along with their health… are we at the stage where even Cruz Beckham could dress better than either contender? No. But it could happen.
Daddy David chose to dress down, relying on his go-to hobo hotness topped with a tea cozy hat to help him win out; Ashley, who’s never been known to be a fashion plate himself, played it smart in his Chelsea FC training gear.
Readers, help us get us out of our rut and speak your piece: which England player personifies crutches-chic?
Side note: We understand how difficult this gimp walk competition can be since neither man went for the adorkable Joe Cole “I’m injured with one slipper” choice of pity attire.
Remember to take deep breaths, a swig of Irish Coffee and have a look at David playing rubber duckie with James Corden in the tub before choosing wisely. If only Ashley Cole’s song with Fifty Cent was available for their listening pleasure. Next time.
