Tottenham’s Andy Carroll bid seriously loses momentum…
Hark! A Kara Tointon dancing montage!
Regardless of the whooping gaydars going off throughout Strictly Come Dancing, the big news from today’s showbusiness desks is that should-be-WAG Kara Tointon has fallen head over heels in love with a ballroom dancer. Take a sobering moment – this is truly a loss for football. The Spoiler had big hopes for the girl (read about them here).
In less distressing news, here’s what we know about football transfers, thanks to The Daily Mail, the ooh-ah Daily Star, The Guardian… but not The Times (you have to pay for the honour)…
Confirming our suspicion that everything that seemed like a good idea around Christmas time suddenly feels like a totally rubbish one once the three week sherry-high has worn off, Tottenham are rethinking making an enormous bid for Andy Carroll.
They may, however, attempt to lure Adebayor on loan from Man City in a move which would smear an even bigger smudge on the collective Arsenal memories of the big striker.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have been overheard whispering something about saving Daniel Agger from his ongoing turd fight at Liverpool.
Lassana Diarra’s long-winded move from sunny Madrid to rather less sunny Manchester trundles onwards, with rumours suggesting that he’s been pleading with the boardroom to let him sod off.
And those Glen Johnson Spanish lessons might yet come in handy, with whispers going around that he’ll be asking people at Real Madrid the way to the station, and counting clumsily up to ten within the next few weeks.
