Zidane, Beckham take on Bale and Moura in “Beckingham Palace”

When you were a kid, your parents probably often told you to never play sports indoors. "You’ll break a window!"

Well apparently David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura weren’t very good listeners:

Broken trophy case? No big deal. Expensive chandelier? Eh, it’s replaceable. Beating the young stars? So worth the damage price tag.

Young Aberdeen fan sends club list of his desired transfer targets

A boy can dream, right?

Nine-year-old Boyd Gibson sent Aberdeen FC a list of players he’d like his favorite club to pursue in the summer transfer window, and it’s brilliant! 

A couple things to note here:

  • Clearly Boyd sees Aberdeen playing with a bold 1-2-7 formation next season. Thiago Silva should be able to hold it down by himself back there. It is only the Scottish Premier League…
  • He must be a huge Dortmund fan. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, of all people, is the third name on his list, beating out the likes of Lionel Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Gareth Bale.
  • This kid’s spelling is impeccable. Don’t lie, you and I both would have sabotaged this entire list at age 9.
  • Kris Boyd! Really though!
