While we appreciate that it isn’t particularly “on trend” to show any kind of emotion other than “surly and confrontational” in football these days, Aaron Lennon’s first batch of photos as an Everton player are particularly joyless.
In fact, putting Robert Huth’s stone-faced efforts to shame, Lennon couldn’t have looked any more miserable if he’d tried…
“Smile and say ‘life is meaningless, all hope is lost’ for the camera”
“I had dreams once, y’know. I wanted to be a dancer”
“Pigeon holes? Get used to them kids. Life is just one big pigeon hole, take it from me”
“Did I ever tell you I wanted to be a dancer?”
Aaron Lennon: Everton’s own little Eeyore.
