PSV’s Memphis Depay’s protective mask is nightmare fuel

That, right there, is quite the busted-up eye. PSV Eindhoven’s Memphis Depay picked up the shiner over the weekend against Vitesse Arnhem, courtesy of an errant elbow.

Reportedly, Depay is medically cleared to play this weekend against Roda, so long as he wears a protective mask. So, how do you make a scary young talent even more frightening?

Like that. You add a flesh-colored demon mask, that’s how. Depay looks like the unfortunate hell-spawn of Hannibal Lecter and Michael Myers.

Here’s to hoping it’s only temporary, because we can’t imagine anyone wanting to mark the 20-year-old when he’s sporting that.

Celebration of the year?

This recent game between Eredivisie foes VVV Venlo and Vitesse was in danger of being postponed due to snow, but the Venlo fans wouldn’t have any of that, and helped shovel out the pitch so the game could be played.

Their reward? Midfielder Brian Linsson’s celebration after Venlo’s second goal, who clearly paid tribute to the home crowd by taking out a corner flag and using it as a snowshovel. Clever stuff!
