Lazy Links & Randoms



Having only just recovered from the intense, fun-filled and good-spirited hilarity that is April Fools Day (anyone sensing a teensy bit of irony there?) we happened upon these where did I leave my meds images for the 2010 calendar from Italian side Napoli.

Though entertained, we would like to offer a note of caution: Anyone remember Swatch watches? They too were shiny, fashionable and very ‘European’ but in the end we realised they were basically inexpensive and made of plastic. We’re only saying.

The bellas at Straight-Up Serie A get full, awe-filled credit for the find.

- More Beck talk as Geri Halliwell puts her foot in it (like this isn’t going to come back and bite her) and a rumour circulates that DVB are trying for a little lady bubba. We’re sorry, but we had enough trouble dealing with this. The idea of David in a similar pose with daughter? Well, let’s just say there may be consequences.

- Not that we need any, but here’s a reminder that Abbey Clancy’s body is ridiculous. [via WAATP]

- Practical parenting with the Torres family now. We’re not quite sure at what age one should commence bitchface training but it would appear that young Nora is an early starter. Either that or she’s just mocked Daddy’s gnome hat. Loudly. Style note: Two snaps for Olalla’s Blank Denim jeggings.

- Hearing that Cesc Fabregas is out for 6 weeks gives us the stabbies. So we found this. We’re so glad he grew into his face.

- Rio Ferdinand, you’re bloody fit, you are.

- We haven’t seen much of Sthefany Brito since she married Pato, but she has finally reappeared on our radar, posing for Italian magazine, Luxury, and looking super hot. Word in the Audrey Hepburn-style photo shoot is that she’s thinking about returning to Brazil to work. We doubt she will struggle to find it.

- In transfer news, rumour has it that Real Madrid are showing an interest in Bordeaux midfielder Yoann Gourcuff. Our feelings are mixed. On one hand, a bigger club means more exposure. But we’re so not sure if we ready for him to be taking fashion advice from this man.

- The very antithesis of a metrosexual man like Yoann, this top ten of hairy honchos (what is the collective term for a gathering of beards anyway. A hairball? A hideous?) has been selected for your viewing pleasure by the Spoiler. Uh, cheers guys.

- Players from AC Milan and Palermo know how to play a proper game of human tetris.

  1. Those are big shorts to fill, Rio, but you do it. ;-) The Haye/Ruiz fight was fantastic, btw. Mercy, David Haye is a big hunk of hardness.

    yoann is not going to rm. while i would like it immensly for the additional (do we really need more) eye candy, he is one of several thousand players that rm are “interested in”. i think he’ll end up somewhere other than bordeaux next fall, however.

    the calander is like a rob zombie/tim burton on crack ad. awesome!

    also, i thought i was going to see nora in bitchface mode, so was sad when i clicked. but her little hand was thrilling:)

    The Napoli calendar is one of the greatest, crack-laden creations to grace the Earth.

  4. Amy says:

    i don’t know how i feel about Yoann to Real Madrid… I don’t want him to be stuck on the bench like he was at AC Milan…

  5. Hooray Nicholas! The great Dane strikes again.

  6. HJ says:

    can someone please post another link for the Torres family pics? They’re not opening on my comp, all i can see is David Beckham :(

  7. Thea says:

    Yoann playing for RM – my idea of hell! But in the unlikely event it happens (bear in mind he's linked to Arsenal, Man U, Bareclona in this year alone) I actually think he would stay a fashionista and well a truly but the others to shame. I don't think somehow that he has a lumberjack shirt, green jeans or has ever gotten anything from a rumage sale!

      yoann hun… do not go to real madrid!!!! look what happened to kaka there!! my nightmare too! no no no…

    If you’ve ever had good prosciutto crudo, then you know where Paolo is coming from. Those pics are AMAZING.

    Damn, I got way too excited just seeing Nora’s hand.

    Go Claudio Caniggia!<3

  10. liv says:

    She's rocking that photo shoot thats for sure;What is this Real Madrid team trying to do exactly?! i mean as if there isn't enough sexy men on the starting 11 and even more on the side line good grace not Gourcuff, because that is the only reason why i started to watch ligue 1 football!

  11. juventina says:

    Just as a correction on the last point – the match was between the Primavera squad of AC Milan and Palermo, not Juventus. Thanks :)
