Good Week/Bad Week: Political Pointers & Food Poisoning

Grab a cream puff and settle down for a sightseeing tour of this week’s hits and misses, dear readers.
You needn’t be picky; any stale, calorific cream puff will do.
Designer Dining: Last week we brought you fabulous Spanish NT sweeties. This week, it’s couture cookies (left), courtesy of Mrs Beckham. Under/over on how many Victoria chewed and swallowed?
Not Caring: Eden Hazard has responded to criticism that he used Twitter to flirt with possible suitors during his recent transfer negotiations by not caring. Hazard intimated he *may* be joining Manchester United and City before settling on Chelsea – behaviour some described as “prima donna” . To be fair, he’s probably been called worse.
Ruffage Repulsion: After a bout of food poisoning that left ten of his players needing treatment, Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin has hinted at dodgy dealings. “It happened in Germany,” he said darkly. “It may have been sabotage, I do not know. It cannot be accidental.” However, later reports have the Ukranian medical team blaming a salad. It it not yet clear whether said salad was acting under orders from Jogi Loew.
Injury Issues, Part WeLostCount: Several England NT players failed to complete open training this morning. At the rate they’re dropping, Roy Hodgson’s preference for ex-players in his coaching staff is increasingly seeming like a masterstroke of tactical planning.
Record Breaking Banishment: Aron Winter has been relieved of his position as coach of Toronto FC after overseeing a record breaking start to the season. Sadly for Winter, the record his boys broke was ‘Worst Start To A Season In MLS History Ever’, with one win and nines losses from ten games played. We figure he probably wasn’t surprised at the decision.
