Soccer fans have amazing Twitter debate about how old a player is

Friday June 12th, 2015

Earlier this year the internet was briefly captivated by two bodybuilders arguing on a message board about how many days there are in a week. Many assumed that was the dumbest argument in internet history, but they underestimated the internet.

A new champion has grabbed the dumbest argument crown as two soccer fans on Twitter got in a spat over how age is calcualted.

They were discussing the possibility of Arsenal grabbing Portugese star Joao Moutinho for a massive sum, when @BlackburnGeorge revealed his advanced birthday math.

It really must be read to be believed, and luckily Back Page Football captured it all.
