FIFA is better than a girlfriend

A tribute to our best friend, our soul mate

Boys, we love FIFA. So, so much. It’s hard to put our finger on why, but it is a connection like no other, a love that has developed over many, many years. It’s always been there for you, and always will.

For those of you that are single, here’s a justification for being so. For those of you that aren’t, don’t forget the one who has been there for you since Michael Owen was an interesting person to talk about.

FIFA is ALWAYS happy to see you when you are home

No matter how your day has been.

Nearly, Kolo, nearly.

Nearly, Kolo, nearly.

An injury to an important member can be replaced by someone equally as potent in a jiffy


Goal Machine Sonogo, clinical as ever

Last minute goals are better than sex


No better feeling in the world. Left him broken.

You can share it with a friend

In fact, you are encouraged to do so.


When your batteries run out, you can just replace them

Will this recharge my batteries?

Will this recharge my batteries?

Finally, and most importantly…

You are always spending time with the lads
