Edin Dzeko & Amra Silajdzic: Culture Vultures

Edin Dzeko hit the Sarajevo Film Festival with model girlfriend Amra Silajdzic on Friday and looked to have an epic time of it, even getting their picture taken with global megastar and noted über hottie, Angelina Jolie.

Ange looked slightly underwhelmed by the opportunity, but hey, maybe he hasn’t had time to check in with Kickette to find out the latest goings on at the Etihad. We’re all busy, aren’t we?

Good Week/Bad Week: May Contain Nuts

TV Enthusiasts: Our mates at KCKRS availed us of the news that Peter Crouch is getting his own talkshow, called, hilariously, On The Couch With Peter Crouch. You might think this is terrible, but we’re addicted to the new series of Geordie Shore. By contrast, Crouch is the footballing equivalent of Larry King.

Also, who watched last night’s premiere of the new ITV1 reality comp, Let’s Get Gold? Starring Freddie Flintoff (cricket bloke), Una Healy (The Saturdays; WAG of rugby chap Ben Foden), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United footballer, obvi) and Martine McCutcheon (who has no great sporting link as far as we can tell), we’re positive none of us missed much.


Kitted Out: Borussia Dortmund & Tottenham Hotspur

Kickettes, quick kit news hits if you care:

- Roman Weidenfeller’s girlfriend, Lisa Rossbach, is thrusting her tantalising triumvirate (lips, blips, hips) forward whilst fronting a new retail campaign for Karstadt Sports. The accompanying advert copy apparently takes aim at Schalke 04 and its fans, telling them they can “look but not touch.” Oooh…! Zing…? Burn….?! We realise this cheeky reference might make perfect sense to some, but we hope we never meet them.

- Under Armour and Totts are teeing up what promises to be a veritable circus of events to officially unveil the club’s 2012/13 kits, the invited journos rumour mill reports. Scheduled for sometime between July 10-12 at an undisclosed location in London, fellow Gareth Bale watchers should mark their calendars asap and begin contemplating which illness you’re suddenly going to be stricken with. Make sure it’s one that’s contagious (although open sores on the face should be avoided) and requires antibiotics and bed rest for one to three days.

Blind Item: Shameful Stripping


Courtesy of this week’s fabu popbitch newsletter:

“Which former premier league star got so drunk at a Marbella beach club that he let his mates strip him naked and throw him in the pool, where one of them pretended to suck his rather small c*ck?”

Hmm. Interesting. And unfortunate.

Care to hazard a guess at who they’re talking about?

Welcome To The Club: Amra Silajdzic

The course of love doth runneth so quickly around football’s inner circles, and again, the time has come to welcome a new WAG to the club.

Manchester City footballerWhat’s the skinny on Edin Dzeko’s current girlfriend, Amra Silajdzic? Hailing from the same Bosnian hometown of Sarajevo that Edin does, Amra’s a HOW OLD model/actress (bit parts) currently living in Los Angeles. We’re convinced she has a conditioner-applier at her beck and call out in Cali. Ms Silajdzic also has about 80 million fan club sites set up on the net – including this creepy wiki page dedicated to her feet – so if anyone speaks/reads Bosnian and can give us the inside from that angle, feel free to contact our uni-lingual selves asap.

Not a lot to go on, Kickettes, but oh well. It’s humpday and we’re barely coping. Putting Amra to the population here: do you approve of the newest WAG to arrive on Man City’s scene?
