Good Week/Bad Week: Stress n’ Street Spats

We made it, Kickettes. We all survived the week without getting sacked, arrested, or falling over in public.

Pats on everyone’s backs.


G’day mate: Australian personalities including Hugh Jackman, Elle McPherson and Everton’s Tim Cahill pressed the flesh with the Queen at a special Buckingham Palace reception on Thursday. We can’t decide what we love more about the evidence though (left). The Queen’s ‘hey there, hottie’ look? Timmy’s polite, slightly panicked expression? Or the fact that another member of the British aristocracy appears to have gone the ‘Philip Treacy’ hat route, with similarly alarming results?

Groundsman Grumble: Pixelated players might not be our idea of a good time (we prefer a more fleshy feel to our footballers), but even we were rather taken with this clip of Leo Messi moonwalking on Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 (top). And now that Leo has special boots, it surely is only a matter of time before we see it in real life.

Back In The Game: A mere six games into his career at Anzhi Makhachkala, Samuel Eto’o has requested a loan move back to Inter Milan during the Russian winter break. This is good for two reasons. Firstly, we miss Sammy in Serie A. Secondly, Anzhi Makhachkala is a bugger for us to spell. Inter is easier.



When feeling sad, taking a look around and counting your blessings is a foolproof way to make oneself feel better. Apparently. Image via lockerz.

Chinese Whispers: It’s always embarrassing when past indiscretions come back to haunt you. But as Ryan Giggs found out this week, it’s bloody mortifying when you bump into them outside a Manchester restaurant and they get into a screaming row with your wife. Pleasantries such as ‘slag’, ‘tart’ & ‘tit’ were exchanged between Stacey Giggs (wife) and Natasha Giggs (Ryan’s ex-lover and wife of his brother Rhodri) before Ryan rounded things off with a super-classy ’You do realise I never cared about you, it was just sex to me‘. Now, when we run into an ex, we always play “Who Won?” And in our minds, we always won.

Busy n’ Busty: Hectic schedules are the bane of our lives, so we have every sympathy for Scott Sinclair’s squeeze Helen Flanagan, who is apparently struggling to cope with career demands. The actress has reportedly been suffering from panic attacks and recently moved back into her parent’s home.  She did remember to pop her girls out (above) on a recent trip to Paris though, so we’re not too worried.

Tattoo Fail: Al Nasr winger Juan Pablo Pino was detained in a Saudi Arabian mall this week, for displaying a tattoo of Jesus. Pino, who also plays for the Colombian NT, was shopping with his pregnant wife when the incident took place. Apparently, displaying tatts in public is frowned upon under Sharia law, but the player quickly apologised and was subsequently released.


Ooh, and while you’re feeling fluffy, please don’t forget to vote for us in the Shape Blog Awards. We’re creeping ever closer to our competitors but your hard work here is not yet done!

    Tim Cahill is hot but where is the picture of Hugh Jackman????Hugh is beyond ridiculously hot and sexy,nice, down to earth and I am insanely jealous of his wife.Giggs family is starting to resemble Borgia family.

    ‘If it looks like a dog and it acts like a dog then its probably f’ing a dog’… LMAO! I can’t believe this is THEE Ryan Giggs- can’t help but think of it as the Tiger Woods Saga of Football. Crazy stuff!
    The Messi vid! Hahahaha… PES has it right, he’s the MJ of Football, all hail!

  3. anna says:

    Still "wife"? The hell? His brother hasn't already divorced this woman?

  4. April says:

    YES to someone doing the moonwalk with Nani, as The Dirty Tackle suggests! I always thought he looked like a young Michael.

  5. xoWinnie says:

    if Giggs managed to maintain even an ounce of class after the summer cheating extravaganza, it's just evaporated.

  6. Agnes Wonka says:

    ohh I can't believe what happened to Ryan Giggs! it looks like taken from a soap opera!
    But…that's real life! Ballers do not have perfect lives, and family quarrels exist! The real problem was the place, where they had the argument :S

  7. LaTiNa says:


    The break up between Puyi & Malena … =( ( in spanish sports website .. sport.es they said she confirmed the break up)

    Love the video of Messi dancing to MJ .. I think I would die if he did that after he scores .. LOL

    That Giggs thing that doesn't sound like a movie .. That sounds like a spanish(latin) soap opera … jajaja .. I can't believe that happen!!!

  8. DebS says:

    The Messi video is hilarious!

  9. littlegreenpea says:

    that messi moonwalk was awesome… and the mention of hugh jackman made me happy… :)

    The Giggs what a classy family NOT!! Surely Giggs must have known this would be all over the papers it’s received by far more attention than his award but he has only himself to blame. They should all grow up for the sake of their kids if nothing else.

  11. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Seriously about Giggs story!! Did it actually happeeeeeeen!!..It feels like a scene from the movie!!..WTF! yes it deserves WTF!!

    • FloraJane says:

      There are 'transcripts' of the fight all over the internet. Apparently Giggs shouted about her having spent some of the money she got for selling the story on her "new tits". lol My jaw was on the floor when I was reading about this. I think the guy just lost it. I mean…a shouting match on the street?! Crazy. But the wife…the brother's wife, later posted on her Twitter page that 'just for the record', Gigg's wife called her a whore. I LMAO over that one. I mean, was that supposed to be in her defence? LOL If it looks like a dog and acts like a dog, well then, it's probably a f*cking dog…. LOL
