After approximately twenty first half minutes of nail biting tension, Chelsea FC stormed to the EPL title yesterday afternoon, putting eight past a 10-man Wigan Athletic at Stamford Bridge.
With the matter firmly out of Manchester United’s hands, a simple 1-0 would have sufficed for the Blues, but we like to think they had half an eye on the Kickette coverage and scored a cheery eight to maximise their goal celebration potential.
And maximise it they did.
On Tuesday night the Manchester United lads and their WAGs put on their finery and headed to Old Trafford for their annual Player Of The Year awards.
Fash-wise, it’s hard for the fellas to get it wrong in this situation. After all, their night likely consists of putting on the same tux they wear every year, making sure their lady doesn’t hit the bubbly too hard and not saying anything embarrassing when interviewed by the in-house TV channel.
The girls, however, have it much harder. A cracking outfit must be produced or they face ridicule from the masses. (Yes, we mean us.)
Fortunately for Ana Vidic (above) there is no ridicule to be had here. She looks stunning in a floaty blue dress with a killer pair of Jimmy Choo booties and matching clutch. Surely we can amend the F5 to include her too? She gets top marks from us.

Could it be true, ladies? Is Arsenal’s midfielder and all round mad geezer, Andrey Arshavin, pinning the Kickette Award for total and utter wuvvley to the chest of Cescy Fabregas?
Well, in our dreams, yes he is. But you don’t want to venture in there as it’s too horrifying. Think: if LOST met Gossip Girl with a side of Harrods sale.
Back in the real world, tonight was the night of Arsenal’s Charity Ball at the Emirates Stadium, an event held in aid of UK charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital. The club is hoping to raise £300,000 towards a Lung Function Unit to help kids with cystic fibrosis, cancer and other conditions.
While we’re not negating Steven’s lock on the forehead fold category, Iker is presenting a strong case as to why he should join the attractive ranks. Let’s dissect what these men have on offer:

Gerrard’s “who do you think you are” wrinkles make us want to forever refer to him as Mr. Big Stuff. One only receives the wrinkles ‘o scowl unless you have truly irked this man. Like when he lost the shoe battle to Alex and was forced to wear the above weapons in public, which is now documented on paparazzi film much to his aggravation.
Other examples include: Alex talking to him as he is consuming footy and beer; either of his daughters in future asking him to meet their boyfriends for the first time.
Note: see pics of the whole Liverpool crew at Warehouse here. See Steven and his hot biz partner here.
You may have noticed we’ve been a little man-flesh heavy recently. While this isn’t necessarily a problem, an overdose of anything is bad for one’s health so we rather generously thought we would refresh your palates with some WAG goss.
Above, you will see Abbey Clancy shopping. For discount carpet. This is odd, but we’re prepared to overlook it on the grounds that it’s a relief to see a WAG doing something she is meant to be doing. Lately we have noticed an unnerving trend of WAG’s expending effort. Like real, proper effort. Marathon running, water skiing, competitive ballroom dancing. All worthy pursuits, we’re sure, but we hadn’t exactly factored this into our life plan. We were working the ‘get the man, get the car, get the house, get the ring, get all the handbags in the fugging world’ angle. Now we have to learn running too?
