Shola Makes a Mess, Maria Jose Lopez Brings Men to Blows, Little Rio the Thespian, and more

I’ll be the first to admit that my eyesight isn’t the best in the world, so I know they’ve played a trick or three on me in my lifetime, and probably will play a few hundred more on me as I get older.

It is safe to say that Shola Ameobi’s eyes must have been playing tricks on him as well, because he mistook his messy house for having been burgled. Word to the wise – it’s always a smart idea to thoroughly search the home before you report a break-in, otherwise you’ll end up here.

While Mr. Ameobi may have thought wrongly that someone pulled something over on him, Portsmouth have made a clean getaway with £8m of Tottenham’s money, after selling Jermain Defoe back to Tottenham for £15.75m a year after buying him for £7.5m.

If you want to keep up with all of the overpriced deals that take place this month, make sure you check out the transfer lists.

Maybe overpaying for Defoe is just a risk Harry Redknapp feels is worth taking, but there are certain risks that are a little unwise, unless you’re Usain Bolt.

You’ve got to give it to Manchester City fans to have a sense of humor no matter how badly their club is playing. Any laughs at the expense of your archrivals are, but in the end, it’s all about who has the last laugh on the pitch, and we’ll leave it at that.

However, infidelity is not a laughing matter (most of the time, at least), and it can in fact bring a man to fight. Being the pacifist that I am, I think it’s only worth it to fight over a woman if she’s being wronged, not doing the wronging, in which case the only exception might be is if she had a couple of floatation devices attached to her body.

As temperamental as they can be, it’d be unfair to refer to footballers as uncultured barbarians. As it happens, some have an eye for the theatrical arts, while others have an eye for fashion.

Think Rio made the right career choice?

Can Burnley beat Tottenham? Can Derby upset Manchester United's second string?
