John Terry could take legal action after claims that he is a ‘Judas’ who betrayed “The Special One” Jose Mourhino to the “Roman” Empire. Various reports have suggested that the Chelsea captain was the catalyst behind Mourinho’s exit from the club. The Observer in particular suggested that ‘Mourinho holds Terry responsible for charges levelled by Chelsea’s board of directors that he had lost the support of his playing staff’. The VP Express has no opinion on this matter but it should be pointed out that Terry is reported to receive 130,000 pieces of silver per week (!!) from Roman.

The World Beard and Moustache Championships 2007

Beards, Facial Hair, Football, Liverpool FC

Yes this week saw more than 250 hairy faced contestants from around the world enter the finals in Brighton, the first time the event has been held in the UK. Brighton was chosen as the venue as it has an unusually high tolerance for freakish absurdity (ie/The Kooks)

However one contestant was said to be ” absolutely gutted” and “as sick as a parrot”. Soccer pundit and newly bearded gadabout,  Alan Hansen was devastated that his efforts had  come to nought.

Twenty three year old Jack Passion of San Francisco won for best full, natural beard, to which Hansen retorted ” Twenty three ? – You cant win anything with kids, its an absolute disgrace, shocking ! I don’t think anyone enjoyed it. Apart from the people who watched it. The lad had Passion, no question, and at the end of the day, I lost because I didn’t win.  I never make predictions, and I never will, but the thing is if history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again next year. ”


Keane Blasts “Soft”Players For Listening To WAGS

Yes Roy Keane’s had a pop at certain players , stating that footballers who apparently allow their wives and girlfriends to dictate which clubs they play for, based purely on which city has the best range of shops, are “soft” and “weak”. The only womans movement Roy seems concerned about is trying to get them and their husbands to move to Sunderland

There may be a grain of truth in what he says , its common place these days to see pics of Colleen, Cheryl and Posh maxing out their credit cards on naff designer gear. Indeed Steven Gerrard’s air-headed wife has one of the most pointless news paper columns known to man, “Shopping With Alex” . Yes tips on “how to shop”, (not, it may suprise you tips on how to “allegedly” glass somebody in a Liverpool restaurant.). I await Cheryl Cole’s up coming newspaper column “Sitting With Cheryl “ giving useful tips on things such as “Sitting”  with much excitement

However surely making any major lifestyle decision to uproot your family from one city to another is something most reasonable people would discuss with their partners ? Not in the world of football it would seem, still stuck in the 1970s I’m afraid , “pull yer knickers up , make me a cuppa, oh and pack your bags lass, we’re off to Sunderland.”

Look at Mike Newell’s rantings a while back “She shouldn’t be here. I know that sounds sexist but I am sexist. This is not park football, so what are women doing here? We have a problem in this country with political correctness – bringing women into the game is not the way to improve refereeing and officialdom. If you start bringing in women you have big problems. It is tokenism for the politically correct idiots”

Dearie me !
