Go there often if you like soccer stuff.AdvertisementAs mentioned earlier today, it's Blue Monday — the most miserable day of the year. [Deadspin editor's note: This was published yesterday.] So to celebrate, The Spoiler thought it would be GREAT FUN to list 10 people in and around the world of football who would drive you to self harm just by turning up at a dinner party. Feel free to add your own in the comments section…Graeme SounessEven at his most cheerful, Graeme Souness still has a grey raincloud floating above his head ready to piss it down. Once upon a time, his grumblings could at least be offset by the presence of a hilarious joke moustache, but now even that's been moodily shaved off and thrown in the bin — presumably because he became sick to death of getting dreary spoonfuls of mushroom soup in it.Cheryl ColeLike mobster wives, it's always been assumed that WAGs will turn a blind eye to the gumars, the gambling, and stick merrily to what they do best — namely hair ironing, and designing new fragrances for hot young tarts to wear whilst they're being rogered by their husbands. Not Cheryl Cole. No, sister. She's a strong, beautiful, independent woman, and now an ex-WAG. Albeit one who seems perpetually cross about something.Mark LawrensonWhen Mark Lawrenson speaks, it's the listening equivalent of a dripping tap, or an old curmudgeonly mute holding down the most depressing key on a Moog keyboard to accurately sum up his mood. Even compliments sound like sarcastic insults. Which isn't great.Vanessa PerroncelShould you happen to have a very short memory, Vanessa (pictured) was the lady who caused such an explosive eruption around the planet that it rippled and rippled, until eventually on a football pitch somewhere, Wayne Bridge shunned the opportunity to enjoy one of John Terry's wet pre-match handshakes. A gloomy-looking woman, had she played her cards a bit more cheerfully, she could have been the next Rebecca Loos. Preferably minus jerking off a pig on Channel Five.Wayne RooneyFans of The Godfather trilogy may have spotted the parallel running between Wayne Rooney and Michael Corleone — in that both of them started out happy, yet have somehow wound up looking at best tired and blighted and at worst capable of murdering a family member. Rather fittingly, Rooney's brother — Fredo — has recently gone off to lord it up in America. Uh-oh.
