Good Week/Bad Week: Dressing Up & Drama
Everton players arrive at the Chester Races yesterday.
Some days we like our footballers to be naked. Other days, we like them to be stylishly dressed.
Marouane Fellaini’s scarf, Kickettes. Is it having a Good Week or Bad Week?
Product Placement: In a series of Coke Zero adverts, Manuel Neuer is seen sporting a karate suit, a pornstache, a cowboy hat (again) and a demeanor of impatience. Fortunately, he is not wearing them all at the same time, which saves us the trouble of having to eliminate him from our “to do” list.
Uncleanliness: This girl got to hug David Beckham and wasn’t arrested afterwards. Having David’s dirty DNA all over your clothes will forever trump showering and doing laundry.
Sofa Status: If any of you got Stuart Holden on a sofa, we figure the last thing you’d be worrying about is his prowess at FIFA 12. Still, we like to build a fully rounded picture of boys we enjoy, so thanks to KICKTV and Stuey’s bro Euan, who confirm in this video that the blondie is terrible at the game. Thanks guys. Next time, if you could arrange for the interviewee to be topless, we’d love you even more than we already do.
Abandonment & Attachment Issues: A Romanian league derby was abandoned on Tuesday night after Universitatea Cluj goalkeeper, Mircea Bornescu, conceded a penalty and the goalpost proved a poor target for his frustration. Cue mass brawl and subsequent refusal of the opposition manager to let his players back on the pitch. Then this poss NSFW Time magazine cover came out and the process was woefully repeated.
Colour Conflicts?: Fans of Cardiff City have reacted badly to a proposal to change the club colours from blue to red; Arsenal added a blue stripe on the sleeves of next year’s kits, although they’re jazzing up their marketing by not calling it blue; And United? Well, against all odds, they’re still trying to make plaid happen.
