No, we haven’t got a clue what they’re doing either. But it seemed as good a photo as any to kick off the proceedings.
Members of Liverpool FC were photographed during their festive visit to Alder Hey Childrens Hospital earlier this week.
Luis Suarez threw himself into the visit enthusiastically, although this lucky recipient wasn’t quite sure whether the striker was merely leaning in for a friendly close-up or setting himself up for a penalty appeal. It’s so hard to know from that angle, isn’t it?
In case you missed it, Arsenal were knocked out of the Capital One Cup last night by Bradford City. Despite an occasionally sparkly history, Bradford City currently compete in League 2, but beat Arsenal on penalties after defender Thomas Vermaelen missed from the spot.

Ten years ago today, Bastian Schweinsteiger made his Bundesliga debut in Bayern Munich’s game vs. Stuttgart.
Since that time he has picked up five league titles, five German Cups and two League Cups, but arguably the most important thing he has learned is that too much fake tan and Sun-In in one’s youth can lead to embarrassment when someone whips out the commemorative photos.
Lionel Messi will sit out Barcelona’s next two training sessions after leaving the Nou Camp with his heart in its mouth on Wednesday night against Benfica.

Bloody hell, that sounds unpleasant. We thought he just hurt his knee.
