Coleen and Wayne Rooney spent a week getaway in Dubai costing £30,000.00 this week. Most ladies would own a single bikini to go to the beach with (maybe two), but when your husband just received a pay-rise of £250,000 a week and you are a multi-millionairess is your own right, a bikini per day is more like it! The mother-of-one has lounged by the pool at the seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel in a succession of trendy two pieces, with many costing into three figures.
The pair about to splash even more cash on their return to Manchester tonight too – they’re throwing another £90,000 at Wayne’s 25th birthday party in a marquee at their Cheshire home.
It appears that they have reconciled after the lurid allegations about the striker sleeping with prostitutes when Coleen was pregnant with their one-year-old son Kai.
If you can take a penalty kick like no other, then online soccer is your lucky game. Most online soccer games happen to be penalty shoot-outs of one sort or another. Games.co.za has a substantial collection of soccer games on offer. Get in the mood for the 2010 FIFA World Cup by reliving the ’06 FIFA shoot-out in Germany.
Choose your team and play increasingly difficult rounds of penalty shout-outs in the African Cup of Nations.
There are also a number of soccer games in which you can have a little bit of fun with a soccer celebrity. Go on a field-long rampage with Wayne Rooney, for instance, or deal out one of Zidane’s infamous head-butts. There are plenty of silly and serious soccer games to play as well, if you’re into that.
Football and poker are two very different games, but despite this many stars from the green field have made the move to the green felt. Teddy Sheringham, Tony Cascarino, Eric Cantona and Tomas Brolin are just a few examples of this. Some have disappeared just as quickly as they showed up, while others have been very successful.
Why is this? Why is poker so appealing to football players? The obvious answer is the competitive nature of both games. When your body is worn out after a long career in professional football, you need to get your kicks in a somewhat calmer setting, and then online poker is the perfect choice.
Another reason is that many footballers come in contact with poker during away trips and training camps. Professional athletes have a lot of spare time, and what better way to pass it than to play a game of poker? A player who has been crushing his teammates in Texas Holdem, Omaha and Seven-Card Stud for years might very well ponder a poker career when his football days are over.
Do footballers have a specific playing style at the poker table? Or is their strategy perhaps dependent on which position they played in football? Are forwards loose and aggressive, midfielders smart and balanced, defenders tight and careful, and goalkeepers crazy maniacs (as goalkeepers often are)? The simple answer to these questions is no. You won’t be able to read an opponent’s game based on the fact that he used to be a football player. You have to work a little harder than that to score against them.
