“Lampsy, do I get to dress up smart again?! Wahay!”
FIFA’s 2009 World Player of the Year shortlist was announced today.
Spot the deliberate mistake:
Michael Ballack (Germany), Gianluigi Buffon (Italy), Iker Casillas (Spain), Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal), Diego (Brazil), Didier Drogba (Ivory Coast), Michael Essien (Ghana), Samuel Eto’o (Cameroon), Steven Gerrard (England), Thierry Henry (France), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Sweden), Andres Iniesta (Spain), Kaka (Brazil), Frank Lampard (England), Luis Fabiano (Brazil), Lionel Messi (Argentina), Carles Puyol (Spain), Franck Ribery (France), Wayne Rooney (England), John Terry (England), Fernando Torres (Spain), David Villa (Spain), Xavi (Spain).
Yeah, okay, I gave you a little help with that one.
It’s easy to bash Mr JT (God knows Pies has had a fair crack), but as good a defender as he is (and I think he’s very good, clearly one of the best in England), he simply doesn’t belong in this company. Lampard does; Terry doesn’t.
But feel free to convince me otherwise…
