Bikini Watch: Coleen McLoughlin

The new trend for this season? Vacationing out of the country whilst your other half goes to work

Coleen McLoughlin has better things to do than hit the Man U openers or tend to Wayne Rooney’s now completely squashed ankle.

He’s out of action for two months, she’s out in Ibiza with her mates with a schedule that so far has included hitting the Radio 1 Amnesia party, chowing down at Cafe Mambo, drinking copious amounts of alkeyhol and tanning until her skin is a healthy shade of premature aging.

The lesson to be learned here is obvious: supporting your man/meal ticket’s career is so 2002.

Side note on Wayne Rooney’s injury: Euro 2008 qualifiers? Nice to have barely met you.

    Actually I Agree With You Robin
    Lol.. Well Done For That Alex! <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  2. Robin says:

    Anna – that article is horrible! It would take nothing for a major company to be their sponsor. We had the same problem here with our pro-womens team. No sponsorship and all they were looking for was a few million dollars. Dove could have sponsored them easily! But I hear we’re getting womens teams back – and they’ll be associated with the MLS so that’s good.

  3. Becca x says:

    Robin I Agree … Thats All They Want To Do. But If I Married A Footballer I Would Want To Stay With Them. I Think There Kids Are A Huge Part In There Relationship. They Have Both Probably Made Mistakes Bt THere Children Are Keeping Them Together.

  4. Robin says:

    Well the Toronto MLS team is rocking the fans. I love seeing highlights from their matches – maybe they’ll be one of the 8 teams to get a woman’s team attached.

    Uneditedmara – I do believe that her being the mother of his children had a small part to play. She got pregnant 7 months after they started dating. What was it Kickette said, get in, get pregnant and hold on for dear life?

  5. uneditedmara says:

    All the way from the other side of the world, PHILIPPINES! *beauty pageant wave*

  6. DANI says:

    YEH I SPOSE.. WE CUD B RONG BUT I VERY MUCH DOUBT IT.. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  7. TammyV says:

    I am from Los Angeles

  8. Robin says:

    Becca – I’m from San Francisco CA.

    And playing hard to get is one of the best ways to get a guy! Especially a successful, cocky, young pup like Stevie was. Turn him down and that makes him want you all the more!

  9. Becca x says:

    Dani I Have Read Steven Gerrard Book And Your Right She Probably Only Got With Him Because Of His Pay Cheque. But I Dunno We Could Be Wrong <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />
    She Made Him Ask For A Date Himself Instead Of His Friend Too….

  10. pris says:

    lol roy keane wins

  11. Anna says:

    Robin – I know it’s really lame. As long as the current people in charge at the CSA (ie. Linford) don’t change it seems like the situation will only get worse. Considering that our men’s u-20 team didn’t even score a goal during the WC they also seem to screwing up on the men’s end of things too. What’s worse is that they promoted the coach of that terribly managed u-20 team to the men’s national coach. Nothing they’re doing makes sense! I can totally understand why guys like Hargreaves and Jono De Guzman want to play for other countries…the situation here is laughable.

    Yeah, it would be really great to see a women’s league up and running across Canada and the US like the MLS is now.

  12. uneditedmara says:

    Is it too much to support your other half during the OPENING GAME OF THE SEASON? The rest of the time, WAGs are allowed not to bother, but the first is always .. well, the first, isn’t it? And missing out on a spectacular goal or a painful injury ON THE FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON just puts the final nail on the coffin that WAGs are good for nothing.


    There is a liiiiittle hope left in me that Stevie married that orange-shade, jumpsuit-wearing, Amazonian woman for a GOOD reason. I guess you can cross SUPPORT off that list.

  13. dani says:

    if any of you have read steven gerrards book it says how alex turned him down like 3 times i think in the end she accepted to go out with him because she found out how big hs bank balance was..

    and becca im not from america im from the uk

  14. Becca says:

    Are Most Of You’s On Here From America? x
    Im Just Being Nosey! <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  15. carly says:

    You know what? I don’t care.
    She looks happy. He probably isn’t but there you go.

  16. tammyv says:

    I am sort of torn as well… It is entirely possible that she (and Alex for that matter) had a long standing girlfriend thing (ie: big birthday or bachorlette party) or a break-up thing.

    And it is not like there are not 10,000 other games to watch this season.  If they had to make every game that leaves them what 5 weeks in the summer (unless there internationals in which case it is shorter)

  17. Robin says:

    I read that article too! Go Roy.
    If I were attached to a footballer I’d WANT to go to the matches. How cool would that be to know that you had tickets to every match instead of having to watch them on tv? But then again, I love watching football and am no so fond of sitting in the sun so there you go.

  18. Michaela says:

    “…tanning until her skin is a healthy shade of premature aging.“ lol. love that line.

    I can’t say that I might not do the same because if I was set to marry Wayne, I’d want to see him a lot less before I was tied to him for life.

    But if it were Cristiano, I’d be front and center baby!!

    :  )


  19. Cate says:

    I’m torn, Kickette, I really am.

    You see, the romantic in me, the part of me that desperately hopes for justice in this world, that part of me actually believes she loves him.

    The rational part of me, the part of me that actually knows how the world works? Points and laughs at the sentimental side.

    *squashes irrational sentimentality*

  20. Anne says:

    This is terrible. Have a little respect. There’s a great article in today’s Daily Mail about Roy Keane trashing the WAGS. Go Sunderland!

  21. Robin says:

    After the whole ‘Alex in St. Tropez as Stevie scores the winner on opening day’ thing, I actually thought to myself – well at least Coleen goes to the matches. D’Oh.

  22. Anna says:

    Becca – I get what you were saying and that you didn’t mean any harm in it. I didn’t mean to jump on your back about what you said but I just wanted to point out how your words could very easily be taken the wrong way.

    The state of women’s football is fustrating in Canada – although we have one of the highest amount of females playing in the world out women’s national team can’t even secure a sponsor. The president of the Canadian Soccer Association has actually gone on record saying that the men’s and boy’s programs were more of a priorty than the women’s programs. Here’s an interesting article:

    That article is why I will always love Roy Keane – my favorite player of all time. He tells it like it is.

  23. freddiegirl says:

    *snicker*  I love Roy Keane!  He says what he means!

  24. Billy Cockroach says:

    Roy Keane declares war on WAGS!!!!…

  25. freddiegirl says:

    Usually I envy all you Brits and Europeans because you can see as much footie as you want but on this one I’m glad to be American.  Here, especially in Southern California girls are encouraged to play sports…and for years football/soccer was considered a girls and childrens’ sport.  If you were athletically talented as a boy you left football for gridiron, baseball and basketball, the latter if you were tall enough as well. 

    We know what you were trying to say Becca, no worries.  Trust me, I’ve encountered that here and in Europe.  I got told, when I asked a group of college-aged men in Russell Square when I asked if I could join their kick-around that ‘girls don’t play football’.  I remember retorting that ‘In America we do, AND we’re better than the boys there…“  as I stomped off.  Even here in LA, a close friend of mine who moved to LA from Hungary was shocked to find out that I played football with guys on Sundays…her reply?  “Girls don’t play football”.  Now mind you, I’m not a lesbian (not that there’s anything wrong with that, I just happen to love men far too much!)  and I’m kinda girly…..I love pink, I love handbags, can spend way too much money at Sephora…etc etc.  And I’m blonde…but I also value fitness and have loved sports all my life so you just never know.  But…I’m glad here people are more accepting of ‘feminine-looking women’ liking and playing sports.  As if only men and lesbians are capable of enjoying them…(rolls eyes). 

    Back to …who are we discussing?  WAGS?  Ok, If I were married to my beloved Freddie Yumberg, hell yes, I’d be there for his opening match in person.  I’d want to support him.  Would I be there for every game?  Probably not but I’d want to show up for as many home games as I could as well as any Cup Finals and what not.  In fact I did show up to my favorite pub to support Freddie’s first West Ham opener (dismal..:() much to the chagrin and amusement of my Arsenal fan friends!

  26. Becca x says:

    I Havent Got A Problem With Anyone Being A Lesbian Im Just Saying That Im Not One.. And I THink People Have Taken This The Wrong Way So Just Forget I Wrote It.. Coz Im A Girlie Girl But I Like Watching Football Too
    Lets Just Forget Bout It Coz People Dont Understand What Ive Put Because They Dont Know Me And What Im Like x Sorry If I Have Affended Anyone x
    Love Love Love xx

  27. Anna says:

    “Understand But I Dnt Want to Sound Like I Am Calling People Who Watch Football Lesbains Coz They Definatley Aint. “ And what if they were. You’re implying that being a lesbian is something awful. If that’s what you think then that’s your issue.

    Anyhow, I’ve been a huge fan of soccer for a loooong time. And I’ll probably choose to watch any sport over most TV shows but I’m still probably one of the girliest girls you’ll ever meet. I love shopping, designer jeans, shoes, make-up, doing my hair, the whole bit. We’ve got to show the world you can love footie, or any sport for that fact, and still be just as much of a woman as the next girl!

  28. Becca x says:

    Charlotte.. did You Understand My Comment Up The Top A Bit Coz Some People Didnt But Me You And Sarah Are On the Same Wave Length!! wink
    And Yeah i Kno I Support A Team But I Do Watch Other Games Too Sometimes And I Support My Team Most But I Amm Always on The Look Out For Fitties!!! :p
    Lovee Lovee Lovee x

  29. Charlotte;; says:

    I Think That Alex And Coleen Seem like Really Nice People And They Seem Like They Love There Husbands/Fiances.. But I Think That They Should Go To The Football Matches.. Especailly If Its The First Game..
    And Becca.. I Get What Your Saying.. I Like Football.. But When You Said ‘I Like Football Because Of The Fitties’ I Think Your A Bit Wrong.. Lol.. Because You Still Support A Team And You Dont Just Watch It For The Fitties Because You Actually Support A Team.. I Duno If What Im Saying Make Sense Lol.. But Im Sure You’ll Understand What Im Saying Becca Lol ..
    And Sarah.. I Agree Lol.. But Even If There Are More Important Matches.. Its Nice To Have Support On The First Day.. Lol

    Much Love

  30. Sarah_xx says:

    I Think That Alex And Coleen Should have Stayed at Home For The First Match Of the Season And Maybe Gone On Holiday Further Into The Season x
    Alex’ Kids Should be More Inportant
    And Both Of There Husbands/Fiances Should be More Important Than Shopping and Topping Up There Tan x
    Im Not Sayin There Is anything Wrong With Going On Holiday Because If I Was in There Situaion i Would Want To go On Holiday Sometimes Too But Maybe They didnt Pick Thee Right Time,, But Then Again Maybe There Is More Important Matches Comin Up For Both Teams In Which Case The Have Made The Right Decision Lol
    I Hope thta Made Sense

  31. Cate says:

    Becca: I catch ya. Of course, if you had implied the former of my question, we might of had to have a throw-down. But yes, I understand, so no worries.

    Robin: It’s never too late to start! I started playing footie when I was a Junior in High School. And our pro league is gonna need some ladies! I’m sure they’ll teach you how to play! :D

  32. Robin says:

    Becca – no problem at all. I understood what you were trying to say. And I’m glad that you watch football – just think you may be the pebble that starts the rockslide of changing the way it’s viewed!
    I love watching the US Women play – we kick some serious tuckus AND we’re getting our pro league back!

  33. Becca x says:

    Well Im Sorry If I Have Affended Anyone Because i Know What I Am Trying To Say And If You Cant Understand Then Im Sorry… But Ive Said It Now And I Dont Need To Say Anything About It Again… I Wasnt Being Rude Or Anythig And I THink Some People Have Taken It THe Wrong Way. I Know What I Was Trying To Say And Im Sure Other People Will Understand But I Dnt Want to Sound Like I Am Calling People Who Watch Football Lesbains Coz They Definatley Aint. I Watch Football Aswell So If I Said That i Would Be Saying It About My Self Too.  IM SORRY TO PEOPLE WHO COULD OF TAKEN MY COMMENT THE WRONG WAY XX

  34. Becca says:

    Robin.. i wasnt meant to be insulting in anyway.. but in Engand football is seen as a more mnly sport and although women do play it isnt on tv that often. I llove watching football and i do support Chelsea.. I wasnt saying you are manly if you watch football i was just saying.. it is seen more as a sport bthat men watch
    Write Back

  35. Robin says:

    Becca – I’m sure it depends on where you live, but it just boggles my mind that anyone would think that a woman who liked sports wasn’t feminine or lady-like. And if someone did think that? Then I would automatically think less of them. I have always loved sports, ever since I was a little kid and my dad had me out running pass plays and watching football (American) with him every weekend – never mattered to him that I was a girl. In fact I’m a MUCH bigger sports fan than my brother is! My only regret is that I never played while I was growing up – my daughter, should I have one, will most definitely play sports. So be free to love your footie and tell everyone about it! The more of us there are around the more the movement will grow and then the next generation will never need worry about what someone thinks of them for liking a sport. *gets off soapbox*

  36. Becca x says:

    You Got It Robin… Im Glad Someone Understands Me.. Like Ermm People Do Think Its A Mans Thing And It Could Come Across As Being Lesbian-Ified.
    But It Doesnt… I Hope

  37. Anna says:

    Why don’t any of these guys marry people who actually support and care about what they do for a living? Not a soccer groupie but someone who will at least be able to talk intelligently about the game or at the very least show up for the important ones.

    I’m not suprised by this at all, btw. But I don’t think any of us are.

  38. Robin says:

    Becca – I think I know what you’re trying to say. In some countries it’s not viewed as being very feminine to like/play/support sports. Luckily that viewpoint is changing!

  39. Becca x says:

    Noo Im Not A Lesbian Man Girl Thing And I Like Football… Coz like Some Poeple Are Like really Manly And Hate Everything And Football And Stuff.. But You Can Love Football Without Being A Lesbain Man Girl Thing… Like Most of Us! I Really Should Think Before i Write.. IM Having A Blonde Day And I Aint Even Blonde!!! <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  40. Cate says:

    So I’m confused. You have to be a ‘A Lesban Man Girl Thing‘ to enjoy the sport of football? Or you’re not a ‘A Lesban Man Girl Thing‘ and you do enjoy footabll?

    Clarify plskthx.

  41. Robin says:

    Becca that is the correct word.

  42. Becca x says:

    Agree Robin.. I Like Football Coz Of The Fitties But I Love Shoppin And That Too I Aint Like A Lesban Man Girl Thing (No Affence To Anyone Who Could Be Affended) But Maybe She Just Doesnt Like It But I Think You Kind of Have Too When Your Married To a Footballer.
    Her Kids Should Be So Much More important Then Topin Up Her Tan And Shoppin.. I Really Like Alex But I Find Myself Slaggin Her Off More And More Often Now Days x
    Some People Need To Sort Out There Priorities ( Dno if Thats The Right Word)

  43. Robin says:

    I remember an interview where Alex said she hadn’t realized how important and big the Champions League final was and so it was no big deal for her to miss it back in 2005. Then she said ‘it’s just not the same for girls I think’. I’m guessing she’s not much of a supporter then so it’s no biggie for her to miss the opening match.
    Kind of too bad though – it was a great match and it IS the same for girls in my book – it just depends on the girl!

  44. dani says:

    becca i no for sure i wud like a husband like stevie g hes fit !!

  45. dani says:

    i agree alex should of been there for the opening match.. but i also think i should lay off slagging her off coz stevie obviously didnt mind her going..other wise she wudnt of gone she would of stayed at home spending his money !!

    another thing hu was looking after her kids.. she was in france he was training for the first game hmm…

  46. Becca xx says:

    Well One Side of Me Thinks….
    there Are Loads of People out There Who Would Love To Have A Footballer Husband Like Gerrard (Not So Much Rooney Lol) And They Cant Even Go To The First Match.. or Any Matches…
    The other Side of Me Thinks If They Spend All There Time Goin To The Matches they Will Have No Time For themselves.. But Yano The First Match of The Season Would Have been Nice To Haave Some Support….
