Home Schooling: Samuel Eto’o dons tortoise shell glasses and looks… well, let’s just say there’s a reason he’s in the ‘Good Week’ section of this post. The Kickette staff will be sent to bed without any cocktails tonight though, as we failed to include him in our amazing ‘Players As Pupils’ post. A+++ for Eto’o, E- for us, darn it.
Normal Baby Names: Antonio Cassano became a daddy this week to a healthy baby boy named Christopher; Kaká & Caroline have settled on calling their daughter-to-be-in-no-time Isabella (which means ‘god’s promise’) Hurrah!
Sticking Around: Some much needed good news for Arsenal fans, as Jack Wilshere confirms he will not be leaving his Adorkable friends for a lucrative deal at Manchester City. He made the announcement via Twitter (natch), accompanied by a pic of himself kissing the Gunners’ badge.

Boo Boo, Bye Bye: Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that Owen Hargreaves is unlikely play for Manchester United for the rest of the season, prompting speculation that the club may not renew his contract. Owen, whose injury problems have been an issue since he signed for United in 2007, is currently sidelined with a shoulder injury.
Over & Out: Rumours abound that despite publicly backing Heurelho Gomes after his blunder in the game against Real Madrid on Wednesday, Spurs manager Harry Redknapp is looking for a replacement goalkeeper.
Monotone Moans: The kidlings at Sunderland’s academy are being issued with black footie boots (sans blades) to prevent them from experimenting with the exotic variety of colours sported by elite players. First team manager Steve Bruce has claimed the younger players should ‘earn the right’ to wear flashier footwear. As long as the boots still have studs on them, we’ll be happy.
Lastly, our thoughts & prayers go out to Didier Drogba’s family in the Ivory Coast.
Was this a successful week for you, gang?
