The TTO: Sylvain Distin v Armand Traore
This week the Thursday Thigh Off heads to Portsmouth FC, where Sylvain Distin is limbering up to take on the young (but legal-ish) Armand Traore.
Throw on your best French designer goods and prepare to judge, Kickettes.
Mr. Distin hails from Bagnolet in France. We have no idea where that is, but it reminds us of baguettes and that works for us; they’re one of our favourite carbs. Anyhoo, Sylvain is 31-years-old, stands at a macho manly 6’4”, and he’s a defender that likes to rough it up a bit on the pitch. We have yet to have it confirmed, but we’re sure he has the words, “Chocolate Thunder” tattooed somewhere on his body. Oh yes, we took it there.
Armand’s a left back who’s been on loan from Arsenal since last summer. He’s definitely on our embryos to watch list. Why? Well, he’s 19-years-young. Born in Paris. And, he’s 6’1” of nearly-newborn muscle group goodness. Seriously, what vitamins is this man-child taking every morning? Baby needs an endorsement deal with Holland and Barrett, like yesterday.
Who gets your vote for the best legs in Portsmouth?
Which Inter Milan player won last week’s epic battle of all that is sinewy and good? Javier Zanetti, who fought hard for his win against Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Congrats Pupi, and commiserations, Ibrah.
