Supporter’s embrace. Football can make you do many a strange things. Here’s a couple of Newcastle fans during last week’s win over Chelsea. (HT @zane_rm)
It seems our EPL All-Hair XI and Middle Earth XI have proved the catalyst to unleash the creative wrath of GFOPs everywhere. Next up, thanks to Angelo Puglisi and Jon Adams, we proudly present the LMFAO XI. During a recent pod, Davo had sworn he’d seen David Luiz performing at halftime of the Super Bowl. The Brazilian defender, used brazenly here as a midfielder, forms the emotional core of this fine side sampled from a great many of the world’s topflight leagues.
Goalkeeper: David James
Defenders: Fabricio Coloccini, Carles Puyol, Alexi Lalas, Benoit Assou-Ekotto
Midfielders: David Luiz, Craig Johnston, Carlos Valderrama, Marouane Fellaini
Forwards: Kevin Keegan, Ruud Gullit
Manager: Diego Maradona
Something to clean your palate after the Arsenal mess on FOX. Clint Dempsey becomes the first American to score a hat-trick in the Premier League.
He’s waiting for you, Rog.
Ohhh Coloccini! You are the love of my life, oh Coloccini! I’d let you shag my wife, oh Coloccini! I want curly hair too.
(To the tune of Can’t Take My Eyes Off You)
Great Friend of the Pod and listener Hunter Volpe pointed out that we failed to mention Newcastle’s ode to Fabricio Coloccini during last week’s brief discussion of supporter songs (video here). A hearty thanks to him and the rest of the Miami contingent of Newcastle fans (@ToonArmyMIA) for helping us see the error of our ways.
