I was an overpaid footballer. Get me out of here

#1

Wayne Bridge, who probably holds the record for most renumerated footballer for minutes actually played, is going into the jungle.

Anyone looking forward to seeing him chow down on a kangaroo’s anus?

Let’s hope he has arranged for his missus to stay at her mother’s whilst he is in Australia, just in case John Terry pops round in the middle of the night to ‘check on her welfare’!

“John Terry is in my master bedroom. Get me out of here!”

I don 't really have much malice towards him, he seemed quite gracious when he left us and I’d always imagined he would come back to us one day.

Amazing how we seem to be able to do a great job with left backs

Meh, for his celebration against Pompey after he scored against them (whilst a Chelsea player) I can forgive him.

Was just a waste of a talent, really.

Another that got pulled in by the vast financial resources of Man City, so much so that no-one would be able to entice him out.

Does he still hold the record for most consecutive league appearances?

He used to bully my mate when they were at school. I don’t blame him for that that though. My mate’s a dick.

He wasn’t truly sold on departing for Chelsea. It was on Lowe’s say-so that he did.

Who are the other people? Is that Jim Bowen? I thought he was dead.

He’s Archie, an evil murderer from EastEnders.

I’ll be tuning in for the jungle shower.

John Terry really fucked him up mentally!

Didn’t stop him performing on a Saturday.

I wouldn’t normally watch this, but I’m at my mum’s place at the moment and they watch this every night.

Interesting old episode last night. Two part task. The first bit involved Geordie fave Scarlett and celebrity property developer Martin negotiating the usual maze of crap. At the end of it, the second part of the task kicks in.

The rest of the group are asked a question over a telephone link: “what percentage of people enjoy sex more after having children with their partner than before?”

There are two answers, 46% and something in the high fifties.

Conventional wisdom kicks in around the camp. Time constraints are discussed along with other factors. The group collectively decides that the lower bound is the one to go with. They’re wrong, and it’s not hard to see why. There are loads of other things people weigh into the sexiness calculus, and the extremes were at most, fourteen points apart.

Wayne Bridge ain’t having it. He even says he’s not having it. He simply cannot believe that the upper percentile is an accurate reflection of how many people like boinking their partner more after the union produces blessed life.

Context-free, fucking bizarre. I can understand his points coming up in the discussion, and we all know the power of the edit, but the show gave the impression he alone lost it over this easily explainable discrepancy.

Watching it with knowledge of the John Terry saga on board, which almost everyone that knows Wayne Bridge will do, it seemed a bit desperate, self-justifying and projecting. I’d love to be able to say that this was something the show tricked a hapless celeb into doing, but this was a hole entirely of Bridge’s own construction.

Lordy.

Thanks Pap.

That was almost as dull and unrelevant as one of my Golf stories.

Oh and Bridger played for Chelski not Citeh. Did quite well for them too.

Just Sayin…

Do people watch that crap?

No seriously, how bored would you have to be to regard that as entertainment?

I’d have been rearranging my shoes, trying on all of my socks or tidying the loft before sitting down to watch that.

#17

The Ayatollah positively looks forward to it.

#18

Mmmmm, I’m familiar with the ladies (bless them) enjoying programmes like Strictly, Eastenders etc, I wonder how many men watch them.

We normally have more worthy things to do with like building model ships out of matches, dismantling gearboxes or playing with giant train sets in the garage.

Ummm, he did “play” for 2 years at Citeh, I say play as he was dropped quicker than a pox ridden Pompey whore when Mancini got the gig.

He was loaned out to lesser clubs at the end of his career.

Lookin at his stats he scored 1 goal for Chelsea and didn’t he make the most of it.

They do. I’ll 'fess to watching one series, pretty much in full (the Gillian McKeith one), but it’s the same damn thing every year with different celebrities. Don’t get me wrong; it is mildly entertaining to watch someone chow down on kangaroo anus, but only really for curiosity value, and not more than once.

I’m put off with most things that Ant and Dec are in. They’re nice enough lads, and fair play to them for managing to hit the top of their game from such unpromising beginnings, but they’re not my cup of tea.
