Fashion FYI, Kickettes: footballers’ hair has got its mojo back after being crushed under the weight of our scathing critiques.
A summary of this week’s hottest ‘baller hair trends the media won’t shoosh about awaits you. If our cleverly crafted-on-the-tube intro hasn’t tickled your fancy, just look at that Napoli manlove.
Wait, what are we talking about again?
Oh yes: ‘ballers and their hair.
Oh, hai there. Image: EFE.

Ever since the womb and all the way to the tomb, Xabi Alonso is a boss. But now, he’s a Hugo Boss.
Yum diddly dum.
Asking our usual multiple choice questionnaire is pointless as the answer is obvious. We’ll have all three. In whatever order he chooses. Day or night.
Perhaps we missed the news piece detailing who, what, where, when, why and how exactly manskirts are the new trousers? It may have something to do with the fact that the football season is 900 weeks long and there are very few staffers sober enough at any given moment to keep up with the joneses, but ‘tis strange indeed.
Do Adam Johnson and Djibril Cisse still look like ladies in their skirts to you, Kickettes? Or are these guys onto something strangely good with their female-inspired fashions?
What would a day at the races be without a few (former and current) Manchester United players?
Probably a less profitable one, as lordy these lads like to gamble.
Only three ‘ballers braved yesterday’s rain in their Chester Races suited finery: Darren Fletcher (with wife, Hayley Grice), Wayne Rooney (also joined by his wife, Coleen) and ex-United teammate/current Sunderland player Wes Brown (who went without Leanne Wassell).
Despite Wayne having the hook-me-up-bookie glint in his eye, he and Col’s horse Pippy came in dead last. Presumably they then retreated home to read “Chicken Soup for the Lighter Pockets’ Souls” in each of their His & Hers walk-in shoe closets.
