Wile ‘Gunner’ Coyote
For those who don’t know Wile was one of the smartest and fastest Looney toons and this character totally suits one Gunner. Yes you guessed it right it has to be Theo Walcott. Walcott is fast and he is extremely smart player but you know there was another side of Wile and that was he never knew how to use his smartness in the right way. And yes I see that side in Walcott also he has a habit of overdoing his smartness and then looking like a lost child. Wile used to bring in all the ACME gadgets fix it up, and all this to catch up with the Road Runner but was never successful. One of the important reasons for this was Wile never used to think about the final step. Same is the case with Walcott he runs and runs and does tricks and stepovers but when he gets into the box 7/10 cases he has no idea how to give his run a face of a goal or an assist. But as in the case of Wile, Arsenal’s Walcott is an amazing talent and imagine a player who could change the conversion rate from 3/10 to 7/10.
With Oscar fever still around us, me a football freak dreamt of Ozil getting the Oscar for best actor for the movie ‘Finding Ozil’ directed by Jose ‘the Special one’ Mourinho. Yes for me Ozil does look like ‘Nemo’ especially with those crazy eyes seeing passes which most of the defenders don’t think are possible. Yes he does glide across defenders with super fast flipping of his fins. Yes most of the time he can’t last on the land for more than 75 minute for obvious reasons he needs water to get some air into his lungs. Yes he is funny too when he beats 4 defenders and the goalkeeper just to roll the ball on to the post which Benzema ‘the cat’ pounces upon. On a serious note there cannot be a better director than Mourinho because he saw the elegant footballer in the punk looking Bremen’s Ozil. Only difference between Nemo and Ozil being Nemo eats fish food where as Ozil feeds on assists and goals and in angry mode he only feeds on Villa’s blood.
Jerry from the Tom and Jerry show is surely one of the most loved and most favourite cartoon characters around the world. And I see all the attributes of Jerry in our very own magical player Lionel Messi. Jerry is fast, Messi is also fast and that also with a ball in his feet. Jerry knew how to utilize the situation when in trouble (obviously due to Tom) be it using the frying pan to leave Tom bamboozled or using the door to bang it on Tom’s face. Same is the case with Messi he will never fall (God knows where is his centre of gravity), he will use one defender to fake the other defender, if you are lucky enough you might just see him use his gliding powers to get through the defenders without they even knowing and finally he does get into those little holes left in the defense.
Bugs ‘coelho’ Bunny
In this case I am going to first tell you the characteristics of Bugs in such a way that I will leave you with no option but to identify the players. Bugs was surely one of the smartest and ambitious character that Warner Bros. ever created. He would use his smartness and cunningness to achieve whatever he has aimed for, be it by hook or by crook. There have been scenes when Bugs has faked his death to finally get the gold (read Goal) out of his enemies. Along with all this Bugs had an aura of elegance and self-best attitude and never cared what others had to say about him because for him he was the best in all possible ways. Bugs also loved fame and being the centre of attraction in a crowd of other famous people so yes Bugs was also very flashy. I would want to end this section with two words Cristiano Ronaldo.
Obviously this fictional character has to be a player whose talent on the field makes you feel ‘Old is actually gold’ and if you haven’t guessed it till now I am talking about Ryan Giggs. This guy has actually been tearing defense apart since 1991 and all this in his very same red jersey. Like the Granny who used to use her wittiness to keep saving Tweety on a regular basis Giggs has been playing like a street smart footballer and beating defenders with the very same ease as he used to during his debut year 1991. When you look at Giggs you actually feel some players turn into a legend for what they did for a club but as for him he is already a legend because he keeps on and on doing whats best for the club. As Granny sometimes used to be one hell of a naughty character our Giggsy is also very well known for his naughtiness. Granny was a character who whatever be the situation used to take pretty good care of Tweety same way Giggs has been influential enough that many young players over the years look up to him for inspiration and that feeling of being protected.
