Joe Cole serenades new teammates with song about his homeland

Brooks Peck

Though Joe Cole's French adventure has only just begun, he's already playing well and it seems he's already entertaining his new teammates at Lille. Just like his former club (Chelsea), the Lille boys made the new guy get up and sing a song as a bit of gentle hazing.

Joe chose the old classic "Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner" and he really belted it out, much to the delight of his audience. We can only assume that immediately after this, homesick Joe attempted to run back to England yet again, only to be told that he can't do that for multiple reasons.
