Euro Crush: Olof Mellberg’s Beard

I wanted to make this post before the England-Sweden game, then worried I may be assaulted once he scored, but now feel it’s okay as enough time has elapsed.

But oh how I’ve missed Olof. He’s one of those players that just catch your eye, which for a defenseman is quite impressive in our highlight-driven (read: goal scoring above all else) culture. Not sure where he’d fit in considering his age and our wonderful central-defense partnership, but the man still has plenty to offer. We took a flier on Grygera; why not on Mellberg?

Also, Jol should find a spot for him if only for that amazing hipster beard. As someone with serious beard envy (not that the missus allows it, but I think if I attempted to grow a beard, I would look like LA Kings Captain Dustin Brown), I swoon at the sight of the towering Swede. All he needs is a fixed gear bike, jorts, and a PBR in hand and he’d fit in at any Whartscape.

That said, Fulham are lacking in the facial hair department are we not?
