Europa League Results: Universal Forms Of Physical Intimacy

As you are no doubt aware, the Europa League semi-finals were played last night and Athletic Bilbao and Atletico Madrid booked their places in the final with wins over Sporting Lisbon and Valencia, respectively.

Because we’ve been so knackered from our midweek Champions League ‘commentaries’, all we’ve got for you today is happy boy photos.

That’s not such a terrible alternative to our typical purple prose, now is it?

Ricky van Wolfswinkel sported a fresh new ‘do for the game. It didn’t help him, but it sure as hell helped us.

We thought long and hard about whether to lead the post with this one as a) it’s quite arty and b) it features a front view of Fernando Llorente.

Then we came to our senses and realised everyone would be more likely to follow the jump if we kicked off with a nude shot.

Stats (like hips) don’t lie.

Ooh, Falcao. Guns and Panties. You shouldn’t have.

The final is on 9th May in Bucharest. Who d’you fancy for it, pop pickers?

    Love that picture of Courtois, Belgian Tarantula FTW!

  7. Hmm Well I was just searching on yahoo and just came across your site, mostly I just only visit blogs and retrieve my required info but this time the useful info that you posted in this post urged me to post here and appreciate your diligent work. I just bookmarked your site. Thank you again.

    Bilbao for the win!
    Although I like that there are two Argentinean coaches in the final, I like and respect Bielsa's work better than Simeone's. Plus, I like his sense of humour.
    Also, Bilbao needs to win for Llorente, who played with all his heart on the field to get his team on the final.

    Crikey, Falcao. More of him, please, but I still want Athletic Bilbao to win the final – their football is amazing. Felt sorry for Van Wolfswinkel after he got booked after 5 minutes for a perfectly good tackle that got the ball. Would have missed the final, but still kept working hard and scored the goal! Consummate professional!

    So sad about Valencia…it, too, is not their season, I guess. I just hope they hold on to third in La Liga. But I'm happy for Falcao and adorable Adrian (him, Mata, Villa…thanks for sending all your football hotness our way, Asturias!). They are on fire this season– and the whole team has made quite a come back with their newish coach. And of course, congrats to Bilbao.

    Oh Ricky, you're gonna end up looking like Meireles if you keep going that way with the hairdos….no amount of bad hairdos would turn me off that sexy man though…

    Anyway, well done Athletic and Athletico!

  12. Sarah, Madrid says:

      I know! I can't believe it. Poor thing. The same knee and 6 more months out. I feel terrible for him.

        :( I saw Albiol's tweet last night about it but couldn't find anything online about it. Poor kid. :(
