Wingers' World 12 - El Mundo
Monday monday - so good to me.
Hello one and all,to another edition of Wingers' World. Back with more bang, more boom, more bop. Let's dip our toes in...
Forlan, For 'Pool?
News reaches ol' Wingston (via the interweb and trawling through sports sites), that Rafa El Gafa is weighing up a move for former ManUSA striker, Diego Forlan.
Forlan, who underwent extensive surgery in his native Uruguay to turn himself into a lookalike for Fenella the witch, from '80's British children's tv programme, Chorlton and the Wheelies (see pic below...), is apparently seen as a cheaper alternative to primary target Samuel Eto'o, now that it would seem that Liverpool's new owners George Gillettethebestamancanget and Tom Hicks appear to have lost the keys to the warchest they were meant to be providing the 'Pool manager with to add to his squad during the summer.
Liverpool Captain in 'mummy-i'm-tired' shocker
Staying on a Liverpool tip (which is a bit like being on a Ragga tip, but slightly different...), Stevie Gee (brother of Bucks Fizz star Bobby Gee) is complaining of burnout.
Gerrard, who played 62 games for club and country this season, is looking forward to putting his feet up with a nice cuppa, la'. He's also getting married soon too, so sayeth the story where i gleaned (nicked) this information from.
The news of Gerrard's fatigue follows hot on the heels of ex-Arse hot prospect David Bentley, who withdrew from the England U21's over the weekend, for the same reason, leaving Stuart Pearce shaking with rage like a rabid squirrel...
ManUSA, fresh from splashing £45m-odd of the money they've raked in from vastly increasing their season ticket prices by up to 14% in some places, are (so it is said) hot on the tail of one Carlos Carlitos Carlos Tevez, with a whopping £35m bid being in the offing. Pretty boy Tevez, who wants to be taken seriously on the football pitch, and not just for his catwalk looks and chiselled cheekbones (or should that be teeth...), was at the centre of a scandal involving third party ownership last season, which resulted in Wet Sham being fined £5.5m.
Let's hope he moves to ManUSA, and the same thing happens again, with penalties being meted out to the club such as relegation, Gary Neville being placed in an Iron Maiden, Rooney being made to look in the mirror, and Fergie's entire collection of Whisky being confiscated and poured down a drain in front of his tear-soaked eyes...
Bruce poses for Kamara
Gorgeous-hunk-of-a-man, and the winner of the 2006 'best nose of the year award', Steve Bruce, is looking to snap up West Brom's Senegalese striker Diomansy Kamara, for £3.5m.
West Brom, overcame huge odds last season, such as having Jonathon Greening in their team, to come within a whisker of promotion via the playoffs, and now that they failed, stories are circulating that Kamara wants to leave to play in the Premier League.
I think you've had enough. Too much of a good thing, and you'll take it for granted. SO I'm outta here, with a hop and a skip, and summer on my mind... toodle pip til next time, you fine folk...
