POSH’S BIKER GANG, DIOUF’S WIFE GIVES BIRTH

They look like a biker gang with all that black and leather. Definitely wouldn’t want to run into these three in a dark alley.

This evening:

Robbie Keane has things to say about how useless he’s been to Liverpool so far (you know, aside from Sunday). Oh, yes, and he’s not leaving …or so he says.

Scolari has things to say about John Terry’s sending off on Monday night. Including this morsel: ‘He’s a very good captain, he accepts the decision from the referee.’ Don’t you just love how accepting the ref’s decision — i.e. not making a big scene of yourself — is no longer expected but something that a player needs to be congratulated for?

So, Cesc’s out. Now what? Wenger:’It is more likely we will buy but we also have internal solutions and we are not desperate. We will miss Cesc, of course, but how much is difficult to say.’ How about this time Arsenal try to buy someone who isn’t a) a pre-teen OR b) calcium deficient. So very tired of injuries.

El-Hadji Diouf’s wife Val just gave birth to a baby girl, Keyla. He should be back for Sunderland’s Boxing Day match against Blackburn.

Anyone else find Everton’s blue Santa Claus slightly wrong?

Last but not least: Not sure about ya’ll but in the mood for a little Bendtner thigh.

GREAT, JUST GREAT… CESC OUT FOR THREE MONTHS

[Apparently, Xabi went to visit Cesc right after the match. Awwz, they’re still fwends.]

Medial ligament damage, might need surgery, won’t play again until the end of March.

…And thank you Xabi Alonso.

Not related — bonus footage from Liverpool/Arsenal: Agger trying to pull Adebayor’s shorts off. He didn’t think anyone would notice.

ALEX IN DUMB LEGGINGS, ITALIAN CRAZY-TALK, PIGEONS DYING AND A SCANDALOUSLY HAIRY CRISTIANO

Posted on August 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

Latex leggings are stupid.

Vogue or some other hoity-toity publication would probably have it that latex leggings are the best thing to hit the shops since one of Michelle Obama’s J. Crew cardigans but that’s as big of a load of BS as there ever has been.

It’s actually like this: Whoever invented latex leggings is either the biggest dumb-ass ever or the smartest crook ever because she/he’s managed to convince women to put on these shiny, clingy, not-meant-to-be-worn-as-pants-but-still-are pieces of crap that many of us now think look pretty cool but, 5 to 10 years down the line, will all agree look completely moronic and tacky.

With that said, nice hair, Alex.

[EDIT: Cheryl too has been inflicted.]

Bits and pieces du jour:

A few days old but will get you every time: The president of Napoli thinks English ladies don’t wash their coochies. How do things like this even come up in any sort of professional convo? Does anyone remember Capello’s psycho ankle-sock hateration last December? Italian coaches are just freaking loopy. Where the hell does this crap even come from?

Another Italian bringing the crazy-talk: ‘I must admit I have a dressing room curiosity over Beckham. […] I want to see if he is equipped as he is in the Armani underwear adverts.’ Yeah, so do we. But we don’t go around telling everyone about it. Instead, we blog about it in relative anonymity like crazy normal people. Sure, that doesn’t make us any more sane than you are, and, yeah, it definitely leaves us in no place to judge but life isn’t always fair, Marco. That’s probably why you drive a Lambo and we take the bus.

Sidney Govou was caught driving drunk after a match. Blind drunk. Five times over the legal limit drunk.

Real Madrid is a ‘mob’. And the Ronaldo-Real story will not die. Ever. It won’t die no matter what you say or do. You can’t hide, it will find you. It will be e-mailed to you. It will be told to you. A different version of it will drop into your newsreader every other day. Friends of yours who know nothing about soccer will say to you: ‘Yeah, he plays in Spain, right?’ THIS STORY IS NEVER GOING AWAY. The sooner we all accept the fact, the sooner we will start not wanting to chuck our laptops out the window every time you hear about it… over and over again.

Hair Watch: Off The Post with a match-the-footballer-to-the-hair sort of quizzie complete with Lalas, Rio and even a bit of Torres. In other hair news, Elano is the new De Rosario and it ain’t pretty at all.

Pretty sure this story is not supposed to be as funny as it is: some Argentine defender killed a pigeon when the ball he kicked struck it. ‘I kicked the ball and, poor pigeon. […] Now I will be remembered as the pigeon killer.’ Damn, straight, you will be. PETA is about the hop on this case.

Last but not least: Was that actual hair on Xtina’s pretty chest the other night?! Sacrilege! Our world is over.…

  • ABOUT

    We're putting the focus on the WAGs, lifestyle, players and the all important gossip and dirt surrounding the beautiful game. Because let's face it, there's so much more to soccer (football) than the game. Did we mention the hot footballers? And yes, we do know the offside rule, thank you very much.

  • OF THE MOMENT

    [guest edited this week by Blair @ MRWF]

    EPL Hottie: Jay Heaps - The blue eyes and curly hair reminds me of an Owen Hargreaves type of hotness.

    EPL Hottie: Xabi Alonso - He’s one of those fallback hotties when you can’t think of anyone out of the blue.

    Most Hated: Jose Mourinho -Never all that loved in the Premier League, he’s now raising eyebrows in Serie A. But rather than picking fights with managers in the technical area, he’s chosen a much higher target, Pietro Lo Monaco, the Catania chief executive. Their verbal sparring has resulted in Jose requesting monetary compensation for Lo Monaco’s free advertising: “If this guy wants to earn free publicity by talking about me, he’d better pay me. Adidas features me in their adverts, but they pay me a lot of money to do that. I don’t get paid to help this Lo Monaco get in the papers.” Oh…snap!

    Most Loved: Frank Lampard’s Thighs - I’ve missed them for so long that I almost forgot how gorgeous they were. But finally they’re making a comeback. They first appeared in the Manchester City game, and have now been visible in the Bordeaux and Manchester United games. It seems he’s still wearing the compression shorts for training, but that is just a minor detail. Perhaps it was my last “Of the Moment” post that finally forced him to lose the spandex.

    Most Annoying WAG: Cheryl Cole - Cease the crying on X-Factor. Running mascara is not a good look. And it doesn’t look good when you contradict yourself either. One minute you’re refusing to talk about your marriage and the next you’re talking about it on national television and in magazines. Make up your mind love. Good job on the runway though.

    Barfline: HANDBALL LAMPS! -- It seems that Frank Lampard’s thighs are getting more than just some action on the pitch. But, do they have to make a football reference out of Lampsy getting a little action in his “penalty box” from some ladies at Funky Buddha? I think not. Bad form, from both the Daily Star and Frank.

    'Round the Neighbourhood: He just can’t resist. The Scouser in him just can’t allow him to keep his bloody mouth shut. His honesty in his autobiography threw some people off at first, but it only made me want to buy it as soon as possible! And now he’s gone out and blasted the American owners of his club. Probably not the best of career moves, but it is who you are, and that’s why we love you!
