Where Woody Go?
Jonathan ‘Sick Note’ Woodgate turned down a move to Newcastle and it was suggested in the tabloid press this morning, that Arsenal were looking to nip in and pinch the ‘Boro centre back from underneath Spurs‘ nose. However, Wenger has come out with a statement straight out of Ashley Coles book on media management, which denies the move, “I do not know where that story came from, there is no truth in it at all.” Perhaps the Sun will run an inside exclusive on it. link

WAGs (wives and girlfriends)
Ashley Cole is not having a good time of it at the moment. After getting the captains armband ripped off him, during a match, he was then dropped at Chelsea. Then, Ashley was on the front pages of The Sun last week, when hairdresser Aimee Walton sold out about his one night stand with her. Now The Sun reveals that Ashley’s representatives met with Aimee Walton last week to discuss aborting her baby. Only for her to reveal she wasn’t pregnant. Cheryl Cole had said that she knew about the night her husband spent with Aimee Walton, during which he vomited, but believed he had not had sex with her. We don’t think flowers will smooth this one over Ashley… WAGs
