Lazy Links and Randoms


Rio Ferdinand looks set to become a father again. According to the NOTW, his fiancĂ©e, Rebecca, is four months along. Then again, the paper calls her ‘Rachel’ in their brilliantly fact-checked article. The pair already have a son, Lorenz, born in July 2006.

Jessica Brinton gives an insider’s view on Alex Curran and Liverpool Fashion Week.

Jens Lehmann gets in a fight with the paparazzi outside Embassy in London. Also at Embassy that night: Charlotte Mears. Zzzz.

Cheryl Cole gets well fugged.

A Kickette commenter gets quoted in the Independent’s story about Roy Keane’s hotness. Nice one, Ally!

New couple on the scene: Micah Richards is dating Coronation Street star, Helen Flanagan. Apparently after they met at a party he bombarded her with texts until she agreed to go out with him. Or, possibly he just showed her his abs and she immediately acquiesced.

    *Indignant* Yes, I am! That article just kept making me giggle for no apparent reason.

    As for Clough: yeah, maybe, he was still a fucking nutter, though, wasn’t he?

  5. The Fourth Official says:

    Cheryl bites, you are obviously not a Keano fan, but I won’t hold it against you.  I have probably seen just about every match Keano ever played for United, and quite a few of his Notts Forest and Irish games as well, and I’ve read just about every word ever written about him. (Not that I’m obsessed or anything).  So, I’m obviously not neutral when it comes to Roy.  I won’t try to defend him to you – he wouldn’t want or need anyone to defend him.  He stands on his own merits.  However, on the topic of Clough, it would be difficult to find any professional in football who doesn’t agree that Clough was a top-class manager.  Yes, old school, but top drawer.  To say he wasn’t is just, excuse me, ignorant.

  6. cheryl bites says:

    Is it only me that finds the Keano article hilarious? (JNot just his new beard, I mean.)

    As a player he was famously uncompromising and had a reputation for a bluntness that could be staggering.“ Well, there are many ways of describing “stick it up your b*llocks”, but “blunt” seems a bit of an understatement.

    He still has strong opinions about everything from WAGs to prawn sandwiches, but they’re delivered in the measured tones of management, not the shrill shriek of the shop floor.“ – Union Rep!Roy?

    “In his book, Keane offered his views on what makes a top-class manager, taking Brian Clough [his old boss at Nottingham Forest] as an example,“ – yeah, punching people in the face for scoring own goals was particularly top-class…

    OK, stopping now.

    For more on Corrie’s Helen Flanagan and Coronation Street have a sneaky peek at

  8. tammyv says:

    Are we sure that he doesn’t have a girl named Rachel on the side as well?  He totally seems to me like he would have multiple baby mama’s…

    Congrats Ally and Kickette for being the voice of Hot-baller/manger lovers everywhere

  9. The Fourth Official says:

    Sorry, didn’t mean to fly off the handle, FootballerChick43.  <group hug>

  10. sara says:

    the times article isn’t just about alex, its about liverpool girls in general and its pretty interesting.

    of course you crazy anti-alex people won’t read it, but whatever.

  11. FootballerChick43 says:

    The Fourth Official – I didn’t mean for a REGULAR person, but for a footballer.


  12. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Awww Fourth we all know 40 isn’t old <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="kiss" style="border:0;" />

    Rio’s lady: I’m shocked, I thought Rio would have a young skank for a missus. This lady looks dressed well, normal skin tone, normal hair and not to be a size 8!! Well done to her. Also how cute does bubba look? Huge eyes, bless. And I wouldn’t believe anything from Screws of the World!!

    Someone talking about Alex, even more boring than Alex talking about Alex *yawn*

    Jens: Seriously is this man nuts? I mean you’d have to be to wear that jacket right?

    Fugged?? What does this mean? Funny story tho, and I wasn’t aware Agness Dyen was worldwide famous?!

    Whooop Whooop for Ally!! HighFives girl!! <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="cheese" style="border:0;" /> (I guess some other peoples comments were too x rated <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />)

    Micah and Helen: I think she is very pretty and he is not!!! The body doesn’t even work for me, it’s too Terminator (not that I’ve seen The Terminator films, I just imagine it looks like this)

  13. Rusty says:

    Kickette is getting quoted by proper articles? Awesome! But kind of scary – I wouldn’t want my comments posted in the Irish Independent.

  14. MJC says:

    Hmmm…40 technically isn’t old, but it IS old for a footie player though isn’t it? When do they get put out to pasture? LOL

    Wow… who knew Micah was packing those abs!!

  15. The Fourth Official says:

    FootballerChick43 – forties is NOT RATHER OLD, ffs.  Pisses me off.

  16. FootballerChick43 says:

    On Rio, aw. He seems like a truly good guy, just not a sex god, in my opinion.

    On Jessica Brinton, bah.

    On Jens, he seems like the type that could put up quite a fight. He’s getting rather old, isn’t he? He looks like he’s in his forties.

    On Cheryl Cole, I’m away laughing on a fast camel.

    On the commenter, sweet. We’re going global <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

    On Micah Richards, I honestly don’t blame the girl. Goodness. He’s got a body to rival Ronaldo.

  17. Pussycat says:

    The Go Fug Yourself Girls have been around for years. Literally years. They have a book out and cover the NY Fashion Week every year for the NY Post. They’re quite well known here in the States – I’d look at their full site – they’re hilarious.
    I read the Liverpool article – my goodness. What do the women there look like on every other day? I suppose I wouldn’t quite fit in – I go get the mail and the WSJ in my pjs regularly. I love the Bay Area!

  18. Johnna says:

    Ahhahah wow Kickette! We’re taking over the internet. It’s Elen’s bad clothes, Alex’s fake hair, and Victoria’s fake boobs for everyone!

  19. aja says:

    the fug girls have been tearing about bad celebrity fashion for a few years.  they are pretty funny, though perhaps that wasn’t their funniest dialogue.  oddly enough, wags appear on go fug yourself pretty regularly for an american blog…i’m sure they would have had a field day had they been present for the research for that day in the life of a scouse girl article

  20. FootballerChick43 says:

    The Fourth Official – [kind of late, but anywayyy..] *Hug* I totally don’t blame you.

    I would have probably been a little pissed too. I should have been more specific.

  21. carly says:

    Kickette, the Fugs are trying to copy you with that dialogue, it’s not remotely as funny as the ones you create. Fug them.

    Hey, go Ally, we better watch out what we’re saying over here, it might get into the papers…

  22. Ally says:

    I’m so embarrassed and excited at the same time I’m sort of not sure what to say. But I’m mostly excited for Kickette’s increasing recognition! Well done everyone! :D

    And Keano remains absolutely beautiful.

  23. AlexRox! says:

    alex is soo cool and sucha strong personality she didnt hav to deffend tht women and its not like she did it for publicity coz it was in the ladies toilets. y dont u for once stop making false judgements about her wen u dont even kno her and frm wot ive heard frm whoevers met her say tht shes an amazingly nice down to earth woman. so jus accept it

    i mean i luv EVERYTHING tht is fabuolusly Gerrard

  24. Go Ally! Wee!

    I think it might have been some comment son that thread considered a bit more…well yeah, x-rated, hehehehe…

    Micah, weeeell… he doen’t have a face to go with those abs, sadly.
