Good Week/Bad Week: Hargo & Aggro

In a week that started badly, got worse and then took a surprisingly amusing turn, please enjoy our highlights with a side of cheesy fries. Yum!
He Gets All The Boys: Steven Gerrard’s groin might be having a rough time of it lately, but it’s indisposition hasn’t prevented members of British gay dating website Gaydar voting Stevie the hottest player in the EPL. Unsurprisingly, Fernando Torres came a close second, while Peter Crouch surprised everyone by getting 2% of the vote. Like, really? Whothehell voted for Peter Crouch, guys?
Comin’ & G’Owen: After confounding the world with his ‘Come Get Me’ youtube vid, it seems that Owen Hargreaves is going to get the last laugh after all. EPL club West Bromwich Albion have reportedly offered the former Manchester United player a deal, although as yet he has not indicated whether he is prepared to accept it. We hope so. It’s been too long since this has been available for our perusal.
Handbags At Dawn: It appears that Landon Donovan has taken his ball home and will not be bringing it back for any neighbourhood pickup games in the near future. He has taken umbrage at being left out of Jozy Altidore’s BFF list on Twitter, responding in a most hand-baggy way to the love-in tweet. All together now… wooooooooooh!
Tool Academy: Columbia NT coach Hernan Dario Gomez was forced to resign this week after allegedly punching a woman who criticised his coaching skills outside a bar. After discussing the matter at length in the office, we have decided that a more appropriate punishment would be ten minutes with the Kellys in the Kickette ‘Mayhem & Fruit Beverages Suite’, but hey, what can you do?
Make It Stop!!!!: The ‘Fab’Si Wantaway Saga’ at Arsenal has yet to resolve itself, meaning that the EPL season will, in all likelihood, begin with the players still on the roster. Both Samir Nasri & Cesc Fabregas have been left out of the Adorkables squad to face Newcastle United on Saturday, indicating deals with Manchester City and Barcelona respectively have not been concluded. Not to worry though. We’re sure it won’t affect the Arsenal players’ heads in any way. Gulp.
