Collapse )
A humble request:

Can any of our trusted readers shed some light on why our Finest 5 number one, Iker Casillas, has decided to experiment with tinted bronzer and a pornstache? Also, would it kill him to put a dab or two of product in his hair?

Many thanks in advance, we eagerly await your consult while we pout in the judgment corner.

picspam to ease the Mondayness

I was stalking looking through some videos of Cesc on youtube, and I noticed that in pretty much all of them his goals are met with some form of congratulations from Aleks Hleb. Those two were my OTP (and also best friends) before Hleb left Arsenal for Barcelona this year, so I thought I might indulge my nostalgia. For you: a picspam filled with a doomed love.

Theo Walcott behind campaign to get mums breastfeeding

The 19-year-old, who plays for Arsenal, is backing a DVD campaign launched today that aims to get more mums breastfeeding.

He's been chosen because his midwife mum Lynn, 46, says his silky skills on the pitch are down to her banning the bottle.

Theo said: "I have always been healthy and my mum says it is down to the breastfeeding. And she is always telling me that one of the reasons I'm such a good footballer is because I was breastfed."

Mum Lynn added: "I always like to claim that Theo's speed, coordination and eyesight and all those things are down to being breastfed. I like to think it set him up for life."

The DVD - From Bump to Breastfeeding - offers support and tips to pregnant mums using real-life stories.

Theo's sister, mum of two Hollie, 24, is one of the women featured in the film which will be given to 600,000 mothers.

Theo added: "I am very proud of my sister for taking part."

Scolari Already Planning For Final Berth

Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari has revealed in The Sun that he is already sussing out accommodation in Rome for next May's Champions League final...

The Blues are currently in the Italian capital preparing for tonight's Group A blockbuster with Roma, and Scolari is revelling in his luxurious lodgings.

"I like this hotel, it’s beautiful," the Brazilian said of the Cavalieri Hilton, a £1,000-per-night Mediterranean palace situated in the heart of the Eternal City.

Chelsea are hot favourites to progress to the knockout rounds; a win against the Giallorossi this evening would all but assure them a place in the last 16.

The Premier League giants reached the final in Moscow last season, where they fell to Manchester United after an enthralling penalty shoot-out.

And Scolari is so confident of leading his Londoners back to the Stadio Olimpico at the end of the campaign that he is planning to make reservations at the Cavalieri Hilton six months in advance.

"If the hotel accepts we’ll book it for next year," he said. "I will be very happy to come back here in May.

"It’s a fantastic hotel. We went for a walk today and it’s in a beautiful area with a great view."

Chelsea will be without Ashley Cole tonight, as he remained in England to undergo scans on his injured calf.

Stuff like this is why most people probably hate Chelsea, but for me it brings the lolz.

From everyone's favorite, but this time they didn't it up, they let The Sun do it for them.

Does anyone know which match is actually going to be on ESPN2 tomorrow? The guide on the TV says Marseille v. PSV, while ESPN's website says it will be the Liverpool match.
