Coleen Rooney seen out in Wilmslow, Cheshire, 09.10.12.

As we relayed to our followers yesterday, Wayne Rooney and his wife Coleen are “thrilled” to be expecting their second child due this May, Col revealed via Twitter. Seems that she only became pregnant last month – around the same time her Manchester United hubby was laid up at home with an injury. Hubba hubba, schwing, etc.

The sometimes author, TV presenter and Littlewoods clotheshorse and Wayne already have one well-behaved son, Kai, born November 2009.

Congrats to them!

Ten days ago, Sergio Ramos demonstrated support of team-mate Mesut Ozil by wearing the maligned midfielder’s jersey underneath his own in the second half of Madrid’s game vs. Deportivo. This has been seized upon by the press as a gesture of defiance to Jose Mourinho, but they obviously missed the Kickette Scientific Research Institute’s paper last year, which discussed the propensity of close partners to share one another’s clothes and mimic their look.

New York Red Bulls player, Jan Gunnar Solli, has a flair for the turn tables, DJ-ing at night clubs in his spare time. Offering the Wall Street Journal a peek at his party playlist, here’s what he says gets the people going:

  1. “Spectrum (Say My Name)” by Florence + The Machine (Calvin Harris remix): “A super crowd pleaser,” said Mr. Solli.
  2. “Lies” by Burns (Otto Knows Remix): “There’s a lot of energy in this track, especially the cool synths.”
  3. “Don’t You Worry Child” by Swedish House Mafia: “Beautiful sing-along vocals over a fantastic drop. It’ll give you that goosebump feeling.”
  4. “Steel Eyes” by Benji (feat. Sherry St. Germain): “Listen to the sick break and how the guitar and Sherry’s voice just get under your skin.”

Players and their “passion projects”. You dig, Kickettes?
