The TTO: Salomon Kalou v Joe Cole
Time for the boys in blue to man up and show us what they’re made of. More specifically, what their quads and hamstrings are made of.
Today sees the lovely Joe Cole taking on the equally lush Salomon Kalou.
Let us quickly make an important point: when putting together a Chelsea-specific thigh off, it is practically impossible not to include one of the thightastic greats of our time, Frank Lampard. Or, in the words of one of our readers, LL: ‘Frank is Chelsea thighs. End of discussion.‘
Agreed. But for today, Frank will be sitting this one out and has instead decided to go shopping for more short-shorts.
Now let’s get on with the show!
What’s Salomon Kalou’s story? Well, he’s a striker who hails from the Ivory Coast, he’s 6’1” and he was so excited when he signed for Chelsea in 2006 that he brought a camera on his first day to take photos. “This was the dream moment of my life and I did not want to wake up and find out that it was not real.“ Cute, huh? Our dream moment with Salomon also involves a camera, but let’s leave it at that.
Although Joe Cole is currently sidelined with an injury that will keep him off the pitch until next season, there’s no reason we can’t pay homage to this 27-year-old midfielder. After all, he’s provided us with many thightastic moments over the years, whether it’s playing for England or for Chelsea. This summer he’ll be making his relationship official when he marries long-time gal Carly Zucker. Enjoy ‘em now, ladies, these are limited edition, soon to be off-market thighs.
Random but coincidental fact: both Joe and Salomon’s first car was a Volkswagon. Not sure that will help with the decision-making process, but there you have it.
Who gets your vote this week?
Congrats to last week’s winner, Michael Rensing, who barely beat Massimo Oddo in a seriously close contest. Well done, Michael, have a beer on us, mate.
