what is it with these British folks? they must be the oddest creatures known to man.

Since the beginning of time we have witnessed the extremely odd behavior of the Brits.

With the Terry-Bridge saga still lingering in the air, a report of naked photos of Ashley Cole are surfacing. Nude photos of Ashley Cole were sent via text to Sonia, a topless model. In turn, the topless model sent a video of herself naked “doing sexy things” as she put it. Apparently, this exchange occurred June 9th of last year while England hosted Andorra in a World Cup qualifying match. Ashley Cole took pictures of himself in his hotel room, one of which a reflection of himself in the mirror with nothing on. He’s doing all this on a pay-as-you-go phone. Later on, he gave the phone to his friend to use because it still had some minutes on it. Well, the airhead forgot to delete the naked pics of himself. Here’s the story:

He gave the phone to his friend, Jay Wynters. This Wynters fella then gave the phone to HIS friend, and that’s when the sex texting began.

Ok, first of all I’m not sure I believe that bullshit. But even if it is true, why the fuck is a 29 year old millionaire who is married to Cheryl Cole (pictured below) taking nude pictures of himself on a pay-as-you-go phone. Fuck that. Why are you taking nude pictures of yourself PERIOD?


the ever so luscious Cheryl Cole

This isn’t the kind of news you want surfaced a day after you break your ankle and find out you will probably miss the rest of the season.

P.S. No offense to my British friends. I love you guys, this is meant in jest.

Kick Homophobia Out

The FA is trying to clean up the game kick homophobia out. There are no openly gay players in English football and they are not taken too kindly in those parts. In the 90’s Justin Fashanu came out and openly stated he was gay and was not prepared for the consequences. Rumors began circling that he had an affair with a married government official as well as various music stars. His career was over just like that and it had nothing to do with his fitness or skill level. No one wanted him. In 1998 he was accused of sexually assaulting a 17 year old boy. Later that year, Justin was found dead; he hung himself. The suicide note read:

I realised that I had already been presumed guilty. I do not want to give any more embarrassment to my friends and family.

Anyway, here is the ad that will try to bring awareness to everyone and hopefully stop the homophobia.

Raul to New York?!

New York Red Bulls are looking to build a team of superstars.

Thierry Henry has already been linked with a move to the Red Bulls and now Raul is rumored to be going there. Raul is sick of warming the bench at Real Madrid and could go to New York and earn the same amount of money he is making at Madrid.

Red Bulls are also trying to lure Paolo Maldini out of retirement.

Lead your team. Be an example. Not just on the field but off the field as well.

If you had to briefly explain the role of a captain it would be something along those lines. John Terry lead his team and was a prime example of a hard working footballer on the field. However, he failed to provide a proper example off the field. He slept with a teammates girlfriend, got her pregnant and paid for her to have an abortion. Therefore, he was stripped of his captaincy. Appointed as new captain, via promotion from vice-captain is Rio Ferdinand. That is pretty much the only reason Rio is now captain. Because he was vice-captain, naturally he got appointed to captain. However, this does not mean he is suited to captain the England squad.

Rio Ferdinand is not a model citizen either. He skipped a drug test once and claimed that he had forgotten that he had a drug test and went shopping instead. He was consequently banned for 8 months. More recently, he was seen elbowing Hull City’s Craig Fagan and is now serving a 3 match ban for that. Not exactly a role model. Not to mention the guy barely plays because of a bad back. He has only appeared in 9 matches for Manchester United this season.

Next in line to be captain was Steven Gerrard. Gerrard is a more reasonable option, he does captain Liverpool and has done so for some time and even served as England captain for 4 games. However, he also has his fair share of off the field issues. He beat the shit out of a DJ because he wouldn’t play his song.

So why not Frank Lampard?

He’s squeaky clean and is pretty much the vice-captain of Chelsea. I don’t think there’s a question that he’s a leader and if you dare question his heart then you better get ready to enter a world of pain. The guy is all class and I don’t see why he is not getting more consideration for the role of captain. I think he fits the role perfectly.

out for the season

That’s not how Ashley Cole fractured his ankle this past Wednesday but he will miss at least 3 months nonetheless. This means Ashley is most likely out for the remainder of the season. Ashley faces a race to get fit in time for the World Cup.

Ancelotti is likely to insert Yuri Zhirkov at left back.

As for England, potential replacements include: Wayne Bridge (awwwwkwardd), Jolean Lescott, Leighton Baines, Gareth Barry, and Stephen Warnock.

So, what is the controversy surrounding John Terry? If you didn’t know, it has become known that John Terry had an affair with one of his teammates (Wayne Bridge) girlfriend (thought to be ex-girlfriend at the time) and during this affair the woman got pregnant and Terry paid for her to have an abortion.

boom goes the dynamite.

The top 2 strikers in the world right now are Didier Drogba and Wayne Rooney.

Rooney has played 4 more games than Drogba since Drogba had to take time off to play for Ivory Coast in the African Cup of Nations. It’s clear they are pretty equal in terms of scoring, Drogba has 2 more assists and is far more accurate with his shots as evident by the shots on goal %.

Drogba or Rooney?
