italian knuckles rapped for match fixing


Yowser. The Italian football league has been turned upside down after a disciplinary tribunal docked AC Milan 15 points next season, and demoted Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina to the realms of the second division.

All four clubs have been banned from European competiton.

Italian reaction is unsurprisingly dramatic. See below for their local headlines.

But first: a photo of one hottie we’ll be missing in European competition: Adrian Mutu of Juventus.

Gazzetta dello Sport “HAMMER BLOW: But it’s only the first round. The ball now passes to the federal court”

Corriere della Sera “Just 120 hours after the joyful day of the World Cup, Italian football is living the most unfortunate day”

Il Messagero “The world turned upside down the day the French celebrate the storming of the Bastille. The amnesty party has suffered a series of headbutts even more violent than those of Zidane”

La Stampa “Another Juve will arise and I hope, with all my heart, so too will Italian football

On skinny jeans: “The problem with skinny jeans is if you wear them with flat shoes, like flip-flops or trainers, you end up looking like a golf club.“

On knickers and lingerie: “I hate those silly lacy bras with all those bits poking out beneath your top. You end up looking like you have four breasts.“

On wearing wedge heels: “Some wedges are great but you can look like your feet are encased in cement.“

Ashley Cole: Pre-Wedding Drama

1 comment

Ashley Cole and Cheryl Tweedy are set to marry this weekend, but it’s not just the dozens of WAG wannabes and D-list celebs who didn’t get an invite.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been snubbed – and people are saying it will be the final nail in the coffin for Ashley’s strained relationship with the club.

More importantly, guests invited so far include his teammates Sol Campbell, Thierry Henry, Frank Lampard, John Terry and Rio Ferdinand.

Cheryl has her own bit of drama to worry about – the press are all over her about the possible split between her band, Girls Aloud, and she’s getting stick over her huge £1 million magazine deal with OK! (that a year ago she said she would never do), and her lavish wedding at Highclere Castle. Cheryl also wants her wedding guests to sign an agreement saying they won’t take any photos of all the celebs at the ceremony.
