Jessica Lawlor: Stephen’s Ireland Issues Are “Water Under The Bridge And Stuff”

It’s no secret that Stephen Ireland and the mainstream media are not bezzie mates. After all, his chavtastic cars and homes have been well documented and ruthlessly mocked, but he’s perhaps most well known for flagrantly fabricating the deaths of his relatives – plural – just to avoid being collared on a trip with the national team.
Little did we know, though, that he and the Irish FA/Giovani Trapattoni/etc made amends over an extra frothy cappucino and some choco-chip biscotti. At least, that’s what Jessica Lawlor would like us to imagine.
“I know people might be surprised to hear that, but you know, it’s water under the bridge and stuff and I feel like he’s ready now and he’d love to represent his country again.
I think he is really patriotic about it so hopefully in the future, you know, fingers crossed, we’ll see Stephen put on the green shirt back on. It would be amazing, I’d love it.”
Dear, dear Jessica. Regardless of what’s really transpired, we can’t overlook the obvious here: you bought your man a chihuahua. For his 26th birthday. And he carries the pooch around in his hoodie. Do you not see anything wrong with that?
