“Are you sure this pose doesn’t look gay?” Quote of the day comes from A-Ha hearthrob Morten Harket, who revealed in an interview with Sky News that the band supports… drum roll… Stoke City! “When were kids Stoke was massive in Norway,” Morten explained. “We can give you the 1975 line-up, but I’m not sure […]
So who’s the Chelsea player with the ball for a head? (Click image to enlarge) Leave a comment with your answer.

You should know the drill by now -Â can you identify the player with the football face? If you know who it is, leave a comment with your answer… Yesterday’s answer: Dirk Kuyt Yes, quite a few of you recognised the chunky, pale legs of Dirk Kuyt. Nice spot.

This screenshot compares the new faces of Liverpool players for Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2010 with those in the previous version. All of the faces are more realistic, with the exception of Stevie G, who looks like he has bad AIDS. Torres looks spookily like the real thing, and they’ve got Carragher’s furrowed forehead spot-on. […]
Think you know who the ball-faced footballer is? (Click image to enlarge) Leave a comment with your answer. Yesterday’s answer: Gilles Grimandi Many different Arsenal players were named, but only a couple of you got it right. Richie B was the first reader to nail it.
