Transfer Totty: Killing Us Softly

So, wow, there is like, nothing happening in the world of football. Other than the odd pre-season training and MLS suspension, obviously. But in terms of some good gossip, quality photos of thunder thighs, or just a nice shot of a WAG getting out of a limo without knickers on, we’ve got nothing.

Okay, so we did read how 37-year-old Alessandro Nesta is relocating to Montreal to play for the Impact next year. And how him signing for the Canadian club will allow him to high five his fellow hottie Italians Marco Di Vaio, Bernardo Corradi and Matteo Ferrari on the reg.

Still. We have the ability to exist for years solely on jam sandwiches and photos of David on all fours, but this all rings hollow for us today.

Kickettes, is the ennui of the looming transfer window making you insane yet? Luka Modric to Real MadridOlivier Giroud to Arsenal? Jordi Alba to Barcelona? Robin van Persie to ____? Someone put us out of our misery until late August? Please?

David & Victoria Beckham: Marriage & Anger Management Mediators


Foul-mouthed chef, crying child handler and court side seat sitter, Gordan Ramsay, recently opened up about the trials and tribulations of his marriage, family and businesses, and surprisingly he credited he and wife Tana’s Los Angeles bezzies, David and Victoria, for helping them through the past few rough years.

Speaking to The Sun, Ramsay said:

“David and Victoria were just extraordinary in terms of help and support during this time…They were really great…there’s no doubt it was a personal blow for me, but you regroup and come back. Tana and I have never been so close.”

Now, Gordon and D-Becks have been matey for years, so the idea of these two hashing out their probs in a drinking den over the celebrity chef’s fine food is something we can buy into.

We’ve had an epiphany, dear readers: all the mocking and wondrous delight we take in fash-bashing Alex has been a terrible, childish mistake.

We need her and her WAGtastic ways. We couldn’t make it through the dark days of the well dressed and the modest without this woman. With so few things in this world that are dependable, Alex has always come through for us, waving the WAG flag of orange skin, French manicured falsies and teflon hair-do’s consistently and reliably.

Not many out there have this skill, and it’s time we recognise this.
