SPORT IN PUBLIC: On the bus with Thierry Henry and some other people who might turn you gay (but probably not)

on in Sport

After all the drama and giantkilling (does Wigan really count as “giants”?) last week it’s back to business as usual this weekend. As ever, Sport In Public is here to help you enjoy your journey to the big game by public transport. Here are all the stories that have had the internet shouting as loudly and angrily as ever over the last seven days, with a little related video entertainment to help you Do It In Public


The glorious goalscoring return of Thierry Henry to Arsenal colours on Monday night apparently led to a spontaneous outbreak of men turning gay on Twitter (although not in Ireland, we assume). If Henry’s Nicolas Anelka-esque beard and bald head combo had you reassessing your sexual priorities, here’s a little something to get you going. Just try not to get too, er, excited, you are meant to be reading this on a bus or train after all…

 

Speaking of man on man love, after rumours to the contrary, Chelsea boss Andre Villas Boas has spoken out this week to say he and Frank Lampard have a great relationship. Here’s a reminder of why AVB is so keen not to upset Mr Christine Bleakley…

The ugly side of the game reared its ugly head again last weekend with bad tackles from Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany and Liverpool’s Glen Johnsen. Despite all the furore and debate about two-footed challenges, we can definitely all agree that neither was as bad as this…

Wayne Rooney denied trying to get Kompany sent off for that tackle during the FA Cup tie between the two Manchester clubs. We can only assume that the hand he was waving in the referee’s direction was merely a gentle reminder to remember to buy a lottery ticket. Let’s remind ourselves that underneath the silly fake hair and other Rooney nonsense, lies a very talented footballer, as this clip of him as a whipper snapper shows…

Other names in the football news this week include Carlos Tevez and Paul Scholes. You won’t be surprised to hear neither was making headlines for the ability to spontaneously turn previous straight men into homosexuals. The former was involved in yet more Milan-based transfer speculation, whilst the latter was doing an impression of a man who had never kicked a football before in his life. Perhaps Scholes has been taking tips from Andy Carroll, who was also the subject of transfer speculation linking him with a return to Newcastle. Let’s remind ourselves why Kop fans are so keen to keep hold of him…

Another man doing an impression was Ipswich manager Paul Jewell, whose comments about a female assistant referee were straight from the Richard Keys and Andy Gray text book. Perhaps Jewell needs a reminder that quite a lot of male officials make terrible decisions too…

And finally, Mark Hughes has replaced Neil Warnock at QPR. Here’s why we’ll miss the man they (not so affectionately) call Colin Wanker…


Here comes the science bit…

Global Cool wants you to lead a green and happy life. This article can help you to be green by:

1. Using public transport rather than the car to get to whatever sporting event you’re attending. You wouldn’t be able to watch all these videos while you drive, now would you? Plan your journey here.
2. Even better… walk or cycle if it’s convenient.
3. Whatever device you’re using to watch those videos, make sure you only leave it plugged in for as long as it takes to charge, not over night.
4.  If you’re more of an arm chair fan make sure you turn the TV fully off after the action has finished. Standby is for losers.
