Sunderland striker Darren Bent sparks internet row with Stan Collymore

Darren Bent is once again at the centre of an internet controversy after an offensive message aimed at the former footballer turned pundit Stan Collymore was posted on Facebook, the social networking site, understood to be responding to comments Collymore made in a column for a national newspaper this week.

Bent was deeply frustrated when Fabio Capello failed to name him in the last England squad despite being the second-highest English goalscorer this season, so it would not be a surprise if Collymore touched a nerve when he wrote in The Daily Mirror on Monday that the Sunderland striker lacks “touch, awareness of space and an appreciation of team-mates’ positioning”, leaving Carlton Cole and Bobby Zamora likelier selections for South Africa.
It has certainly provoked an aggressive response on Facebook. The post in question, entered into the 'What’s on your mind?’ section of an account listed under the name Darren Ashley (Bent’s middle name), which features personal photographs of Bent, read: “Collymore should stick to smashing the **** out of his girlfriends and dogging in local carparks rather than commenting on who’s 'out of shape’. silly *****.”

It would not be the first time that Bent has used a social networking site to air his grievances. The 26 year-old caused a storm last July when he used his Twitter page, db10thetruth, to engineer a move from Tottenham to Sunderland by lambasting Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.

He wrote: “Do I wanna go Hull City NO. Do I wanna go stoke NO do I wanna go sunderland YES so stop f****** around levy [sic].”

Stevie G: Property Tycoon


idk how to embed the video but Stevie talks about the new penthouse flats he's having built, wanting to have a baby boy, life after football *sob*, eats a sandwich, laughs and smiles a lot (by his standards), looks ridiculously hot.

Anyone who can afford £1,500 pcm rent that fancies having Stevie as a landlord can find out more about the project here: http://www.mannislanddevelopments.com/index.html
JT my bb <3

Leave her Crouchie. She's no good. But she's hot.





Clancy, 24, made the boob as she helped Crouch, 29, get ready for last month's friendly against Egypt.

He only discovered the blunder just moments before he boarded a bus at England's training ground on his way to an international at Wembley.

The 6ft 7ins striker was forced to ask aides to rummage through the Hertfordshire camp's lost property bins in the hope of finding a pair of size 12s.

"Peter was pleased when Abbey offered to give him a hand. She's very thoughtful, so she said she would take care of packing his outfit to travel to the stadium in," the Sun quoted a source as saying.

"He didn't think much more of it until he tried to slip his shoes on - and noticed a problem.

"Abbey had packed him two left shoes. He rang down to reception to see if they had anything suitable for him to wear from their lost property department.

"Finding size 12s is a tall order, but surprisingly they did manage to find him a pair. So Peter managed to look as smart as his team-mates for the big match," the source added.

The Curious Case of Lukas Podolski

Written by Raphael Honigstein

Back in 2006, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lukas Podolski had the whole of Germany at their feet. "Schweini & Poldi," as they were affectionately known, were the poster boys for Jurgen Klinsmann's young, surprisingly successful team, and more: They transcended football to become something akin to a boy band. In a country not exactly blessed with native pop cultural icons (30 years on, Kraftwerk is still the best we can do), they were genuine stars.

Fast forward four years and you'll find that Schweinsteiger has finally begun to live up to the hype (again). He, too, felt underappreciated at Bayern. He said people were too critical of him. But instead of sulking, the 25-year-old decided to concentrate on improving his game. He no longer wanted to be "Schweini," the teen mag celebrity, but a respected, serious player. What's more, he has become the only guaranteed starter in Germany's midfield apart from the captain. Schweinsteiger, a product of the club's youth system who used to model himself on Zinedine Zidane, has easily been Bayern's second-best player after Arjen Robben this season.

"Prinz Poldi," on the other hand, is still lost in a funk. Cologne rescued the homesick striker from Bavarian exile for a fee of $13.5 million in the summer and made him the most expensive player in the club's history. He was instantly hailed as a messiah by the local tabloids, who wasted no time debating Cologne's imminent return to European greatness. Manager Zvonimir Soldo built a whole team around the attacker.

Poldi has been a disappointment in club level (no real news there) but does his lack of club form pose a threat to his place in the German NT? What do you all think?


10 Footballers who should really be in bands.

*my first post! :) if this has already been posted, i'll delete it!*

lolz, I wish I came up with this brilliant idea first... but the geniusness should be accredited to The Spoiler!

Sometimes looks can be very deceiving. Were you to spot Jan Molby and Matt Le Tissier on your local high street, you wouldn’t have them down as magnificent footballers. Similarly, Arjen Robben and Dirk Kuyt look like they work in the same call centre.

There are ten footballers who look more like band members than sportsmen…

Lionel Messi, The Monkees 

No matter that he’s the greatest 21st Century player going, Lionel Messi’s haircut is a fitting homage to the dreamy pop groups of the 1960s. He has something of a young Brian Wilson about him, but everyone knows how that weird little story ends. Hence, he’d probably be more at home as a member of The Monkees.

Theo Walcott, JLS

The latest pop sensations, JLS drive young girls absolutely berserk with their impressive dance moves, and songs about kissing. And yet they also appear to pay a similar attention to detail to their various grooming rituals as Arsenal’s Theo Walcott. If things implode, he could replace one of the ones that isn’t the main one, and no one would ever notice.
