Transfer Trolls: Professional Footballers Won’t Stop Messing With Us

If social media has done one thing for us, it’s certainly improved our one-way communication with the world’s biggest stars.

Los Angeles is a place where the stars shine a little bit brighter, metaphorically of course. There's a reason David Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Gio Dos Santos ended up there.
