Enough, Already: Phillippine Azkals manager Dan Palami has announced his boys are about to go into a five month intensive training programme to prepare for the AFF Suzuki Cup in November. For those of you unfamiliar with the Azkals, we mentioned them here, and their goalkeeper is an underwear model.

We’ll check in in a few months with you, boys, but honestly? We’re not seeing much room for improvement so far.

So what you’re essentially saying is that over the next season, there’s a good chance that this cutie will feature upfront with Chicharito? Can you imagine the level of cuteness that will be unleashed on an unsuspecting public?

Never one to shy away from a fashion risk,
Rio Ferdinand brought a pair of powder blue
chinos into the mix at an Inside Soap even at
his Rosso restaurant in Manchester yesterday.

Also along for the ride were a pair of cognac
leather oxfords, matching belt, and a pocket
square.

Be still our hearts. If all men dressed like this,
the world would be a happier place.

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.

GOOD WEEK

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.
