Fowler never was quite known as an athlete, but he does look a BIT georgeresque in that photo.

I would love Yuri Zhirkov, last summer was the first I saw him play and was immediately drawn to him. Granted, right back is a bit more pressing need than left, but Insua could play on the right I guess.

Zhirkov is a wonder in FM. Man City bought him for like 22m and he's been the only constant on the squad. Because, y'know, reality and all.

I just realized how much his name sounds like 'jerk off,' so whoever does get him will be putting up with some blush inducing chants from the opposition.

Last night, I saw a guy in a Berbatov t-shirt (not jersey, t-shirt) making out with a girl who made Diego Maradona look like Peter Crouch. The front of his shirt had a picture of the Bulgar with the words "Hero." He was also wearing a Souther Cal hat. I decided that this guy was the biggest douche I'd ever seen.

Sarah said...

Wow, yeah he sounds like a bigger douche than this guy, even.

The surreal part of the story, Sarah, was that this took place in Tallahassee. So, the kid was a FSU student, wearing a Berbatov tee and a USC hat. Snogging a fattie. It was all too surreal for me.

Qualification: I too am a Seminole, so, yeah.

"made Diego Maradona look like Peter Crouch"

I wasn't sure if this made her really short or really fat or both until the later comments.
