At the editorial meeting for this post, we thought long and hard about which picture to lead with.
- Should we use this one of Theo Walcott, who scored his debut club hat trick in Arsenal’s 6-0 whipping of Blackpool at the Emirates, and celebrated by gallantly trying to stifle Marouane Chamakh’s backspray?
- And while we’re admiring the scoring prowess (in a good way) of EPL strikers, would it not be rude not to overlook Andy Carroll who put three past a James Milner and Martin O’Neill-less Aston Villa in yet another 6-0 drubbing?
(We’re not sure what’s funnier. The thought that we actually have editorial meetings or that we weren’t going to use this picture of Philippe Mexes’ short tent.)

It may sound like a delicious salty treat best enjoyed with a bucket of crisp Chardonnay, but buckle up readers, Frings vs. Fritz is one serious non-snack related business.

Will he head to the EPL or La Liga? Will he hire us as the qualified belly button de-fluffers the world knows we are? Let’s talk about this.
