*Fair enough, this is from an article from last year. But just a quick comparison
- Joe Cole did not win world player of the year
- Joe Cole did not win player of the year
- Joe Cole did not win any trophies last year at all
- Joe Cole did not keep his place in a team that fielded the likes of Poulsen and Ngog.
- Joe Cole's league debut ended after he was sent off for a challenge on Laurent Koscielny
- Joe Cole is not Lionel Messi
What Steven said
"[Lionel] Messi can do some amazing things, but anything he can do Joe can do as well, if not better. He used to shock us in training by doing footy tricks with a golf ball that most players can't even do with a football. I really fancy Joe for the [player of the year] award this season."
So if the QPR board are reading this, buy Joe Cole and persuade the Premier league to let you play with a golf ball for all your home games. Simple.
