The Summer 2012 Transfer Window Closes: Where Art Thou WAGs?

Another frantic Friday is in the books and it couldn’t have happened at a better time.
For us and our gossip-minded people, we mean.
Bad news for Charlie Adam’s missus Sophie (née Anderson) who won’t be able to pop by Liverpool’s Cricket Boutique at whim anymore now that she (and he) are headed south for Stoke-on-Trent’s Stoke City. It’s a travesty of unfathomable proportions, really.
Scott Sinclair signing with Man City is hugely annoying, not least because we never got to see the war involving his WAG, Helen Flanagan, and the city of Wales come to fruition. Ditto Rafa Van der Vaart yanking our beloved Sylvie out of London prematurely; samsies goes for Nigel and his crowd-pleasing WAG, Winonah de Jong.
Working our way towards London for a minute, our good mates at Of Headbands & Heartbreak are as confused as we are when it comes to the love life of Esteban Granero. Here’s their cliff notes on the QPR newbie’s dating status: “Pirata split with longterm girlfriend, Pilar, and was seen with a mystery brunette back in May and whilst on holiday in Colombia. But, everything remains very much up in the air since hombre keeps his love life relatively quiet and drama-free.” We guess we’ll await sightings of MB out and about in London before speculation can resume.
While we’re on the subject of the Spanish language (just go with it), Roque Santa Cruz’s nummy family will be relocating to the suburbs of Malaga. Their death-stares-in-side-eye-cognito will likely follow suit. We presume Carlos Bocanegra and his daughter Talan (plus his baby momma?) will be migrating to the land of tapas together as well since the F5 footballer signed with Racing Santander late this afternoon.
And finally, any excitement over seeing Clint Dempsey’s incredibly private wife and their two kids do their American thing during Liverpool’s end of season parade has kind of been killed now that he’s signed with Tottenham. We need to brush up on our Hotspur familial knowledge before we can offer our Kickettes an appropriate one-liner.
We absolutely missed a host of wives and girlfriends in this summary – have a go at us in the comments below and we’ll update in between glasses of Pinot Noir.
