Lille OSC: The Power Of The Mind

Adil Rami, Rio Mavuba, Tulio De Melo & Mathieu Debuchy celebrate winning Ligue 1 last season in awesome style. Image via the rather wonderful undiesboyssoccer.

Right…there is a substantial amount of information to process in this photograph.

Which is why it has taken us five months to post it.

The contents of Adil Rami’s pretty pants, for example. The fact that a shirt with knee socks and no shorts combo is a tough look to pull off even if you have just led your team to a league title. Tulio De Melo’s razor sharp hip dips (we lost a good few months right there, to be honest).

But mostly we’ve been concentrating on Mathieu Debuchy’s red towel. It turns out that if five grown women sit round a computer screen for three days solid, stopping only for pee breaks and carb loading, the combined power of their wishing is not sufficient to make said towel disappear.

Still. It was definitely worth a try, don’t you think?

  19. Hot4Spurs says:

    Can this be my new screen saver?

    • Hot4Spurs says:

      I feel as though Kickette should caution Mr. Red Towel. We forgive this mishap of not dropping the towel this first time, but if this happens again……

  20. snwflk says:

  21. Miss XOXO says:

    Oh la la nice abs…

    Imagine the moment before this picture was taken…

  23. Hazel says:

    Holy… I'm selfish so I'll take Mr. Hip Dips and Mr. Red Towel (without the towel, of course). The towel can be a souvenir for his Lille teammates who won't be seeing him for a long time. ;)
