How about a little light-hearted banter to carry you into the weekend.
Here are a selection of 10 of the worst hairstyles ever to have graced a football field.
Some short, some long, some so ridiculous they became as famous as the player who sported them.
I'm bound to have missed a few good ones, so please add your suggestions as comments below.
David Beckham has sported a wide array of hairstyles during his time as one of the most famous footballers on the planet, but none worse than this one.
It was 2001 when he pulled out the Taxi Driver inspired mohawk. What was he thinking?
Brazilian Ronaldo pulled out a classic at the 2002 World Cup, which can only be described using the kind of terminology and language Bleacher Report steers clear of.
As you'll see later, it was quite a tournament for bad barnets.
Romania made quite an impression at the 1998 World Cup, not least when the entire squad bleached their hair to promote togetherness on the field.
After beating England in the group stages they were knocked out in the second round by Croatia. So it didn't really do the trick.
Sir Bobby Charlton was so good as a footballer he could get away with almost anything on top.
But his sweep-over was so grand it has stood the test of time. Try and tease your thinning locks across your head these days and people will say you're sporting "the Bobby Charlton."
Another belter from the 2002 World Cup, this one sported by Nigeria's Taribo West.
Dreadlocks will always be cool, but Vagner Love committed a fashion crime against the movement by dying his blue.
Here he is in 2009 playing for CSKA Moscow.
Jason Lee's career should have been remembered for its goals, but the former Nottingham Forest striker ultimately became more famous for his hairstyle.
TV show Fantasy Football labeled it the pineapple, and fans taunted the forward by singing, "He's got a pineapple on his head," to tune of "He's got the whole world in his hands."
Kevin Keegan's 1970s perm was a classic. Whether it was cool at the time is impossible to tell, but it certainly looks ridiculous four decades on.
If you thought the mullet was resigned to middle America and eastern Europe, think again.
England's Chris Waddle sported this permed beauty at the 1990 World Cup, and it went home after he missed a penalty in a semi-final shootout with West Germany.
But Waddle couldn't hold a candle to the hair star of Italia 90 that summer.
Colombian midfielder Carlos Valderama pulled out the biggest hair the game had ever seen. And he rocked it with some style too.
Abel Xavier has had so many ridiculous hairstyles in his career it's hard to pick a winner.
This picture was taken in 2007, with Xavier presumably on the red carpet for the "Most Ridiculous Hair in Football Awards."
