Snapshot: Chelsea Players Meet Their Simpsons Alter-Egos Ahead Of World Cup Episode…

By Chris Wright

As part of their pre-tournament build-up, FOX are planning to air a World Cup-themed Simpsons special at some point in March which will see players from several famous clubs cameo in a yarn about Homer inadvertently becoming one of the world’s finest referees in an episode brilliantly entitled, “You Don’t Have to Live Like a Referee”.

Any Tom Petty reference gets a solid two thumbs-up from Pies.

Any road up, Barcelona, Zenit, Corinthians, Porto, Juventus and Boca Juniors have all okayed their players’ images being used in the show, as well as Chelsea – who have since become the first of FOX’s chosen clubs to have their players immortalised in Simpson form.

In fact, Eden Hazard, Fernando Torres, John Terry, Frank Lampard and Petr Cech have all already met their yellow, Groening-ised selves when FOX sent life-size cut-outs to Cobham earlier in the week…


If a giant cardboard cut-out of yourself as a Simpsons character isn’t enough to coax a smile out of you, then may God have mercy on your cold, joyless soul.

We’re looking at you, Eden.

    I understand that they animated Torres’ scenes live. Haw-Haw!
    Homer referee. Old Trafford?

  2. Harry Catknapp says:

    Bet John Terry had a few quiet words with them after seeing no arm band on his. Come on FOX surely you know he’s Mr Chelsea, JT captain/leader/legend or something like that.

  3. Rob says:

    Frank’s got the biggest belly as usual, but why isn’t Terry wearing his socks like leggings?

  4. DoodleMaster says:

    The fuck is David luiz?

  5. Geraldo says:

    Similar to the moment when John Terry lifted the European Cup, a lttle piece of me has died on seeing this abomination.

  6. Terry Shedingham says:

    High time the Simpsons creators threw in the towel.
