Ah, the bitchface. Letting the official know who’s in charge at an early stage is a vital part of a player’s modus operandi. Note the referee’s soothing body language. He knows this is going to be a rough game. Images: Getty Images/Zimbio.
Generally we tend to skip over the boring bits in match reports in favour of skin exposure, so our knowledge of the pressure that match officials are under during elite games is limited. We know that players exploit the rules to their own advantage and frequently go unpunished on the field, resulting in embarrassment and criticism of decisions made in the heat of the moment. It’s disappointing.
We thought long and hard about whether it was mean to lead a post that contains heart-breaking news for Arsenal fans with a picture of Cesc Fabregas’ nummy tummy. But then we figured that first and foremost, our duty is to the Kickette Army, whose appetite for manflesh will not appeased by mere sentiment.
This was a reasoned decision. Any complaints should be mailed to the Mayhem & Fruit Beverage Suite, where they will be treated with the contempt they deserve.
Roll up, roll up, ladies and gents! It’s Friday once again, and we are proud to announce that Guti has donned a spectacular comedy ensemble of beige suit accessorised with green in order to act as compere for our revered Good Week/Bad Week post. Don’t cha just love the effort he’s gone to, just to amuse us ?
What’s that? This is a photo of Guti at his son Aitor’s communion ceremony? In that outfit? Oh. Oh dear.
