Wenger: “We are in the real world.”

Posted: 15 Jan 2009 09:15 AM CST

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger remains confident of signing Zenit’s Andrei Arshavin, despite the looming threat of Manchester City throwing their zillions of dollars into the ring to scupper the deal.

Wenger, who has always kept Arsenal on the path of stringent financial prudence, also seemed somewhat annoyed about the way things are shaping up in the sport these days with the influx of billionaire owners:

“I am very hopeful … because the market closes at the end of the month, but if it does not happen, it does not happen.

“We have a few options available although we are not close to any of them – everything is open. Do not forget we have [Tomas] Rosicky, [Cesc] Fábregas and [Theo] Walcott who are all creative and offensive players and will come back from their injuries at some stage, as will Eduardo [Da Silva]. He has recovered very well and he would be like a new signing. For me, he is two to three weeks away.”

Arsenal are thought to have offered no more than £15m for Arshavin while the Uefa Cup holders have been holding out for around £20m. Wenger maintains his traditionally prudent club will not break the bank to compete with the spending power of Manchester City. “It leaves Arsenal where we are. That means we spend the money we produce and we make. We are in a world where we live from three kinds of income – gate receipts, the sponsors and the television money. That is the real world of football.

“The rest is exceptional and is not the rule of our world. It is a special income with unlimited resources, but it is not the real world. Whether it is us, Sunderland or Coventry, we live with the same rules. Manchester City are in a different world because they do not live with their income.”

With a new crew in place, Mickey decides to con intellectual property experts Carlton and Harry, whose ruthless business practices have led to a suicide.

Posh Gets Sexy For The Camera

Posted: 15 Jan 2009 03:55 AM CST

Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham poses in underwear on her first photo shoot for Armani..

Beckham, 34, has a £12m, 3 year contract with the clothes designer and is looking almost too good.

In the past Posh has complained that she has a saggy tummy and looks crap naked.

The black and white photographs, shot by celebrated fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, will appear on billboards around the world, as well as in magazines.

Designer Giorgio Armani hailed Ms Beckham as: “a stylish and intriguing woman”, adding: “Great underwear is alluring and provocative, and so I wanted to work with someone who would make a real impression.”

Either those photos have been touched up or she has seriously underestimated herself, speaking of which, Adobe, the makers of Photoshop, just announced news of 13% increase in sales

The Ladies Are Up For Eviction

Posted: 15 Jan 2009 03:38 AM CST

Michelle, Mutya, Tina and Ulrika will all face Friday's public vote.

They face the vote after getting three votes each. Hated rapper Coolio received just one.

Verne voted Tina for her massive ego, he said: "She thinks she is more attractive and ultimately full of herself."

Coolio nominated both Ulrika and Michelle – accusing the Swede of having a big head.
He said: "It feels as though she is superior, so she can take her superior ass home."

We think foul mouthed Tina will get kicked out and good ridance to her.

Who do you think will go?

Teenage Boys To Learn About Porn

Posted: 15 Jan 2009 03:34 AM CST

Boys are to be asked to discuss pornography in class to improve their self-esteem and stop them seeing women as sex objects.

The Family Planning Association is training youth workers to ’support’ teenage users of pornographic websites, videos and magazines (which must be close to 99% of all male teenagers). The group is concerned that boys are gaining too much of their knowledge about sex from hardcore porn films.

Some experts are calling for schools to show pupils images of sex to teach them what it is really like.

The new course, for youth workers who visit schools, is designed to ‘explore the impact and influence of pornography on young people’s attitudes to sex, safer sex, their sexual development and relationships’.

The course is called ‘Fantasy v reality: the impact and influence on pornography on young people’. Mark Limmer of Lancaster University said:”If we are serious about countering some of these images that they see in pornography, we have to give young people more explicit images of sex”.

We at The DailyDust look back to our childhoods and agree, Peter and Jane did us no favours what so ever.

Danger Man Dies at 80

Posted: 14 Jan 2009 11:37 AM CST

Cult British hero Patrick McGoohan passes away.

"I am not a number, I am a free man!" went the famous phrase from The Prisoner, and it is that show that Patrick McGoohan will be most remembered for in the UK. The creator of one of the classic TV series of all times has died at the age of 80 in Los Angeles after a short illness.

Famously turning down the chance to play two of the major 60's spys in the UK (James Bond and Simon Templair in The Saint), he set about becoming a household name in Danger Man.

That was followed up by The Prisoner, and McGoohan's place in our hearts was assured, although the reaction to the final episode saw him move to the US thanks to the public reaction.

He continued his quirky TV CV, directing five  episodes of Columbo, writing two of them, and acting as the murderer in four other notable clashes with the shabbily dressed yet sharp minded detective.

McGoohan leaves behind a lasting legacy of film and television, challenging yet hugely commercial at the same time.
