Morrissey and Robbie Keane are friends now, Morrissey makes it weird with strange love poem

Posted by Chris Wright

In today's "strange friendship of the day" news, it would appear that Mancunian misery arse Morrissey and LA Galaxy frontman Robbie Keane are fast becoming the best of buds, with the pair posing for a photo in the Galaxy dressing room after their game against Club Tijuana on Tuesday evening...

Just to make it that little bit more unsettling, Morrissey then went and wrote a gushing ode to Keane which was later published on one of his fan blogs, calling the Irish striker "pure therapy" and "weightless as an astronaut" before flagging up the debatable similarities between their respective chins:

"It was a joyous head-storm to attend LA Galaxy v Club Tijuana last night and to see captain Robbie Keane score in the fourth minute. Why, exactly?

"Well, family tree aficionados will be aware that Robbie and I share the same Irish blood; his late grandfather (Thomas Nolan) being my own father's cousin. In filial terms the Irish blood, English heart genetic between Robbie and I is evident - his chin is my chin, my chin is his.

"Robbie was raised on Captain's Road (as was my mother) in Crumlin (Dublin), before he was shipped out to Tallaght. He is a gentleman of the highest caliber (or, if you must, calibre), and to watch him on the pitch - pacing like a lion, as weightless as an astronaut, is pure therapy. Robbie, the pleasure, the privilege is mine."

O...kay.

Guess this means former QPR striker Kevin Gallen has just been bumped from the top of Mozza's "bestest footballer friends" list then?

Yep, you read that correctly. See here for details.
