Perplexed Players: You Need Some Help With That, Honey?

“So what you’re essentially telling me is that these fancy electronic shoes only work if I shave my legs?” Fulham’s Pavel Pogrebnyak puzzles over the instructions for his new miCoach boots.

Much was made of Mario Balotelli’s failure to control a bib last season, but were we being unfair to Super Mario by singling him out for his hilarious ineptitude? Is he really the only footballer player who struggles with the simplest of every day tasks?

A brief glance around the leagues suggests not.

T-shirt tributes are everywhere lately, but it looks as though Baby Bojan overestimated his multitasking capability with this one for Eric Abidal. Thank goodness Benoit Assou-Ekotto didn’t have a go. He would’ve been there for days.

Even we’re prepared to admit that our standards aren’t exactly high. With FIFA regs becoming tougher by the second, even the odd ab-free expanse has appeared on that hallowed page that is The Tuesday Torso. Maybe Christian Gentner was actually trying to set a minimum standard with this poorly planned and subsequently scrawny effort.

If so, congrats Chris. You did it!

No, you seem to be managing with that one just fine on your own, Krys. Good job!

    Friends – I think the 4th photo is Kevin Alston of the Revolution in the mask, not Krystian Witkowski of the Union. I mean, I didn't know either – I had to Google (I haven't been awesome keeping up on the home team). Gorgeous pictures all – who ever they are.

    OMG… Mario trying to put bib on… so hilarious. Actually he looked like a naive child in that video!

      About a week or two after I got completely obsessed with Balotelli, I was trying to put on a dress and couldn't get my arm through the hole. I had to laugh. Random things to do with him kept happening to me, i.e. the background of my phone changed to sky blue while I was just holding it.
