Ooh, guess who just won the Ballon D’or for the fourth time in a row?!
With those long winter evenings closing in, what better way to pass the time than to snuggle up warm and entertain yourself with irrelevant facts from the weekend’s European football fixtures?
Actually, don’t think about that too much that. Just read the post. Ta.
It would certainly make the rest of us feel a bit better about our shite cars.
Even the most optimistic football fan knows that the this image is the closest they’re ever going to get to John Terry facing notorious chav haranguer Jeremy ‘put something on the end of it’ Kyle.
Or is it? Italian TV show ‘C’è posta per te‘ (You’ve Got Mail) has been using footballers in a their problem solving public forum for years now, and while the likes of Daniele De Rossi, Francesco Totti and last week, Cristiano Ronaldo, have so far been restricted to helping others during their appearances, surely we’re only a format tweak or two away from players facing up to their ineptitude on national television.
Watch the clip of Cristiano in action, then tell us that Mario Balotelli shamefacedly explaining last year’s firework bonanza while being told to ‘grow a pair’ by a middle class tit in a crap suit is too much of a stretch.
Over to you, ITV2.

Having spent most of the season bristling at comparisons of his on-pitch prowess with that of Lionel Messi, Euro 2012 was Cristiano Ronaldo’s time to shine. It says something about the player that in a season where his 46 goals propelled Real Madrid to the La Liga title and he became the first player in the club’s history to score 40+ goals in two consecutive seasons that that he cares about such meaningless details, but still.
He does, and therefore, so do we.
