Don’t be misled, people. Despite Marco Borriello’s innovative approach to legwear, Roma’s Christmas party was not fancy dress. Luckily, other players performed marginally better in the fash stakes, as you can see here. Image via tumblr.
The party spirit has certainly overwhelmed Marco Borriello in this photo, and we must confess to spending a little too much time practicing for our own ‘do this week, too.

Heaven knows what next week will bring.

All were great to watch. Except maybe the last thing.
