There are two things that leap out from this article:
p. Talking about the night he proposed to his girlfriend, Coleen:
p. “I’d picked it (the ring) up from the jeweller and told her we were going out for a Chinese meal, but we stopped at a BP petrol garage because Coleen had to get the money to pay for the meal.”
p. That’s right, he’s a starting player for England, and he makes his girlfriend go get money to pay for dinner, during which he planned to propose to her. Romance = Alive and Well.
p. And then this:
p. Wayne and Coleen are set to dislodge David Beckham and his pop star wife Victoria as English football’s first couple after Beckham had a poor tournament and has seen his image tarnished by accusations of extra-marital affairs.
p. Yeah right. A chav (albeit a talented chav), with an ugly head, and a Council Flat girlfriend is going to take the place of Beckham and Posh. Uh-huh.
