There once was a time that we tracked Freddie L’s every move and outfit like he was Santa Claus coming from the North Pole to drop presents at our flats.

We’re less inclined to do so since he started dressing like a ‘Deadliest Catch‘ crew member.

Uncapped cuties Tom Cleverley and Frazier Campbell have been named in Stuart Pearce’s squad to face the Netherlands at Wembley next Wednesday.

Also benefitting from Pearce’s temporary appointment to ‘The Toughest Job In Football™’ is forgotten-under-Fabio defender Micah Richards, while hotly tipped Adorkable Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain didn’t make the cut, with Pearce stating “if we elevated him into the senior squad and he played for 10 minutes then I can’t see what the footballing education would be.”

Other surprise omissions included Frank Lampard and Rio Ferdinand, although the word is that “the door is not closed” to the veterans. Same as our office boudoir door then. Any time you feel like stopping by, lads.

The whole squad list is available for perusal here. Initial thoughts, Kickettes?

Cesc Fabregas Daniela Semaan boyfriend girlfriend WAG former Arsenal playerWe didn’t watch most of Tuesday’s Brit Awards – mainly because we’re not fans of the show for the same reasons as Joey Barton – but we managed to tune in just as Cesc Fabregas was muttering his way through Ed Sheeran’s name.

It was more than cute, Kickettes. So was his hair cut.

Fabregas new WAG girlfriendFor those wondering, it’s not clear if Sex (or Seb, depending on your sources)…walked the red carpet or not. If he did, we’ll find those photos and spam you with them later. UPDATE: It’s clear, and he walked it with Daniella Semaan in tow.

Someone who was on the red carpet that we feel obliged to mention: Abbey Clancy Crouch. No matter how hard she tries to deny, something funky is going on with her inflatable trout pout. Ya heard?
