Champions League Style-Off: Which Manager is Worthy of Your Style Snaps?


Dear readers, the battle of the Titans is upon us. No, not Inter v. Barca or even Bayern v. Lyon,  but something much more important than that.

We’re talking about the fashion face-off that’s about to go down on the pitch perimeters. Tonight, two of the best looking managers in football, Pep Guardiola (Barcelona) and José “The Special One” Mourinho (Inter Milan), are going head-to-head in the style stakes.

Le sigh. What is it about these two? Their yelling, pacing and mad scientist gesturing whilst in designer gear is like a mating call for the modern footy woman.

So, let’s get down to judging. We’ve got a few criteria to take into consideration:


Weekend Results: Rather Volcanic


As half of Europe remains shut down due to a volcano taking inspiration from Jermain Defoe’s auto activities, let’s take a quick bulleted look over what we took notice of this weekend. Since we’re becoming obsessed with the Icelandic spouter and mother nature’s ability to mess up a continent, we’re also going to try and use the word Eyjafjallajökull at every possible moment.

- The news that Fernando Torres is out for the rest of the season hurt us like a broken nail after a new manicure. The possibility that he could miss the World Cup was much more traumatic: more like running into an ex whilst shoving a jam doughnut down your gob and wearing your “laundry day” house clothes. With a pimple the size of Eyjafjallajökull. And a pair of knickers falling out of the bottom of your laundry day trousers as you gallantly walk past.

- Luckily, there’s still hope Nando will make it to South Africa. Thank Eyjafjallajökull.

- It was a helluvan exciting weekend of footy.  Manchester United showed everyone they are not going down without a fight, with a win over City in the derby. (They also showed everyone they can take man love to heights bigger than… oh, you know where we’re going with this so let’s just stop.)


The Monday Mmm: Fabio Cannavaro, Juventus


Oh the Italians. They helped everyone ease into last weekend and now Fabio Cannavaro is making Monday more manageable. Plus, only he can make a suit and trainers look good.

Bonus: He took his shirt off two weeks ago. Soz for holding this hostage.
