Youngster unimpressed by Barcelona shirt on birthday

Sometimes you don’t always get what you want. Case in point: This kid.

There’s really only one explanation for this boy’s pouty reaction to getting a Barcelona jersey. He has to be a Real Madrid fan, right?

If he’s not, then he surely doesn’t know how to react to a gift you don’t want. The handbook clearly states that you repeat the gift name, smile wide and then start eying another (hopefully better) present.

What an amateur!

Just kidding. Sort of. But here’s to hoping the youngster wound up getting a birthday present he really did want.

Sturridge nets winner as Liverpool beat archrivals Man United


There may be no player more on fire than Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge.

The now 24-year-old striker — he celebrated his birthday today — scored his third straight match-winning goal to send Liverpool past old enemy Manchester United and to the top of the Premier League. It was Liverpool’s third straight 1-0 win to start the season, the first time since 1994 that the Reds have started on nine points.

Sturridge has now scored 11 goals in his last nine appearances in all competitions for Liverpool. Fans may be wondering, is there even a need for Luis Suarez? Or perhaps they’re already dreaming about what could be possible once the Uruguayan returns to link up with the hottest player in the Premier League.
