Ekanga Amia of Equatorial Guinea shows the world why the Academy were so wrong to overlook him in the Oscar shortlist. His side went on to beat Senegal 2-1 in the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.
The day isn’t close to being done but we’re so giddy about today’s preparedness that we’re willing to share our Good Week/Bad Week update with you all early.
You shouldn’t feel special.
We’re quite proud of ourselves this week. Despite over-indulging a touch during the holidays, we still managed to bring the goods to the table. They included David Beckham in a state of undress, Demba Ba’s favourite snack item, the Football Power Couple of the Year results and a thorough examination of aesthetic prejudices in football.
Not bad when you consider we were only fully conscious from Thursday onwards.
Don’t be misled, people. Despite Marco Borriello’s innovative approach to legwear, Roma’s Christmas party was not fancy dress. Luckily, other players performed marginally better in the fash stakes, as you can see here. Image via tumblr.
The party spirit has certainly overwhelmed Marco Borriello in this photo, and we must confess to spending a little too much time practicing for our own ‘do this week, too. This was despite David Villa’s busted leg, Nico Kranjcar’s attempt at hobo-chic and Guti’s experiments in facial hair ruining everyone’s good mood.
Heaven knows what next week will bring.
Titi is in London this weekend for the unveiling of his Arsenal commemorative statue. We can only hope the sculptor wasn’t obliged to replicate his shoes n’gilet combo. We’d prefer not to have to look at that for the next 100 years. Image: PacificCoastNews.com.
In a week where the whole of Manchester was thrown out of Europe’s elite competition, we admirably restrained our ‘inner mean girl‘ while you lot let rip on Shakira’s new ‘do and Yoann Gourcuff reappeared on our radar, you may well ask what could possibly be left for us to report on?
Plenty, as you’ll soon see…

After a busy week that saw Cesc Fabregas crumble under the intense pressure of our whining, a reveal of the strange bathing predilections of the Portuguese NT and a few choice players sharing what they don’t want for Christmas, we are pleased to finally be able to bring you some proper football news.
Yeah right. And we’re giving up cake in December, too.
