The Italian FA has informed Liverpool that Fabio Borini has broken a bone in his foot

This is not funny because it’s an injury, which are never, ever funny. But the way this Tweet was phrased, with images of a nervous Azzuri staff calling up Brendan Rodgers to tell him the Lynyrd Skynyrd album they borrowed and promised not to scratch is now shattered on the floor of a grungy apartment, did make me smile. Not laugh. Just smile.
Good thing Clint Dempsey plays for Liverpool. Anyway, Liverpool still have…Suarez. And several midfielders that resemble strikers on occasion: I’m thinking here of Nuri Sahin and Suso, the latter of whom the LFC official team site IDs as a striker. Problem solved!
Speaking of records (streeetch), have you seen this website yet? Say goodbye to whatever the hell crap work you were doing just now…
