Blind Item: Cash Complexes


apologised twitter pic lost a betWest Brom’s Liam Ridgewell has apologised for wiping his bum with a £20 note, an indecent act which was Twitpic’ed and posted to his Twitter account before Liam had to delete it and cough up a mea culpa. We recovered the photo, thankfully, via the Law of Google (if you have a past, it will re-surface, and it will sound and/or look bad).

But now we hear there’s been another player toying around with his moola. Supposedly, a ‘top keeper’ was recently seen winding up his fellow pub patrons in his hometown local after lighting his cigar with a tenner.

Tsk, tsk, you two.

Any guess on who it could be, Kickettes?

Hope everyone has recovered from the madness that was this weekend! We personally are in serious need of some vitamins after seeing so many cramped legs, wet hair-dos, bloody body parts and yellow cards. Lest we forget a few curious ‘transfer’ rumours, too.


WAG Tag Watch: Helen Flanagan


Helen Flanagan, girlfriend of Scott Sinclair, told FHM she’s not too fond of being branded a WAG since she’s famous for her own talents. She also talks about… oh, some other phony crap.

“I don’t hate being called a WAG but it’s not what I am. I’m an actress, I like to model and I like doing my own thing.”

While no one gives a rat’s ass, really, we’d appreciate some clarity on the timing of Helen’s remarks. Were they made before or after she showed how proud of her boobs she was for the lads mag’s annual calendar?

- Invest in a fleet of flash cars that can travel faster than the speed of light, crash at least one of them.

- Get drunk off £400 bottles of bubbly, often.

- Holiday in Ibiza/Sardinia.

- Go on the Z-lister pull.

Here’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Eric Cantona, Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Ruud van Nistelrooy and Edwin van der Sar cheesing for the red carpet cameras at the Sir Alex Ferguson statue unveiling in Manchester on Friday. Don’t they look fantastico?

When a group of aging footballers can multi-task at this level (standing upright, rocking semi-formal attire, demonstrating obedience, etc) we swoon. We truly do.
