England boss Steve McClaren is celebrating his first victory as new team boss. England trounced Greece 4-0, with goals by newly appointed captain, John Terry, Frank Lampard (hope he’s exorcised those World Cup demons), and Peter Crouch (goals 2, cocaine snorting breast-flashing, unfaithful girlfriends – 0). John Terry says that David Beckham sent him a text message wishing him good luck, and that it was a dream come true to have a result like that.

Colleen McLoughlin has revealed her top fashion tips for the new season:
“Invest in a quality handbag, shoes and belt. Buy items that match different trends, like the leopard print bag, rather than spending all your money on one look.“ She also hypes gold and lurex as “really glam”.

Pregnancy rumours are flying around Victoria Beckham, but their reps refuse to confirm or deny. The timing of their recent “love boat” action seems too soon for anyone to know surely? Tabloids are saying Victoria’s recent wardrobe choices of “baggy” tops are a dead giveaway.

Bayern Munich aren’t interested in Manchester United’s offer for midfielder Owen Hargreaves, even though he has said he would love to return to the English Premiership.

Victoria and David Beckham are releasing a fragrance together, called Intimately.

Photos taken for the ad campaign are said to be racier than their shots for Italian Vogue back in 2004. Apparently, they love the pics so much they’re going to get copies of them for their home, Athena-style.

David’s aftershave, Instinct, became the highest-selling men’s fragrance of all time when it was released; Victoria’s demin line for Rock & Republic is a best-seller, and there’s a waiting list for her line of sunglasses at Harrods; obviously her book, “That Extra Half an Inch” will be a bestseller when released in October 2006; the Beckhams already have a multi-million dollar deal with Coty cosmetics.

Guess David won’t be shuffling off to the unemployment office just yet.

We can never make our minds up about frank lampard here at kickette.

Is he a cutie or … not so much?

Case in point:

Very cute: signing autographs in flash car; stubble; good shades

Not at all cute: weird pointy nipple thing happening

Cute: with daugher, Luna

Cute: standing next to david beckham, nuff said

No, never, not gonna happen: taking it to the streets

Such are the dilemnas that keep us up at night. That, and trying to understand how he could possibly have missed every bloody chance to score a goal for England at the World Cup. Not that we’re still bitter.
