Welcome once again to Good Week/Bad Week, where we share some of the stories that we have been enjoying in lieu of doing any proper work.
Leather Look: Cristiano Ronaldo’s lady love Irina Shayk debuted a rather fetching leather jumpsuit (top) at the New York premiere of ‘Hanna’ on Wednesday night. We have placed this news item in our ‘Good Week’ section as we are feeling unusually charitable. Readers interested in her ‘innovative’ approach to fashion should take a look at this, courtesy of our friends at Kickette Style.
Hoop-La: LeBron James has purchased a minority stake in Liverpool FC. Rumours that the controversial Miami Heat star will be lining up next to Andy Carroll in LFC’s game against Manchester City on Monday were started by us.
Serial Dating: Pato & Barbara Berlusconi are no longer hiding their love for one another. Good for them. Broken hearted Kickettes can find solace in the news that Aida Yespica has apparently moved on to the next, putting an end to any lingering Mesut Özil lust connection.
Mario explains the exact trajectory and force required to make a dent in a Maserati with a metal torch. (We know this is an old picture, but without artistic licence, we are nothing. Image: Getty Images/Zimbio
Automobile Aberrations (1): Serial berk Mario Balotelli continued to test manager Roberto Mancini’s patience by having his Maserati bashed in by a club bouncer. According to reports, the striker’s group had just been kicked out of a lapdancing club for breaking the ‘no touching’ rule and decided to celebrate by jeering in the faces of the bouncers. Exception was taken and one of the gents set about Mario’s car with a metal torch. Sigh.
Automobile Aberrations(2): Arsenal babe Cesc Fabregas’ vehicle also suffered ‘slight’ damage this week (left), when he bumped into the back of an Audi on his way to training. He later tweeted he was fine, allowing our panicked hearts to return to a slightly less frantic rhythm. Could you think about getting a driver, Cesc? Your safety means a great deal to us.

Classy Chanting: Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for Spurs fans, they have now been forced to deny their chants toward Emmanual Adebayor during the first leg of their Champions League fixture were racist. Regardless of the outcome, our mothers taught us that if you haven’t got anything nice to say about someone, don’t say anything. We rarely abide by this, but see no reason not to admonish others for the offence.
