Style, Taste and Class…


Ladies and gentlemen….May I introduce you to our newest columnist, NorthernJess. A self confessed football agnostic who is intrigued with the constant media fawning of these over paid pre-madonnas she will be giving us her views on a regular basis on what she sees in the press. Today her first victim is Liverpool’s want-a-way star Andriy Voronin….

England, the country that hundreds of thousands of people migrate to every year, is apparently not good enough for a Ukrainian WAG. Yulia, the wife of Premier League player Andriy Voronin, believes the standard of living us Brits are used to is far beneath her, and that she would much prefer to live anywhere else.

Along with insulting the weather and the health service she attacked our dress sense and is reported to have said:

‘The Brits are horrendously conservative. Of all the colours, they like only black and grey.

‘And I was wearing bright and tight clothes, walking in high heels – and evidently looked more colourful than them.’

Clearly Yulia has been living in First World War Britain. Doesn’t she know the hottest colour on the catwalks is coral…?

I’m also not sure that black and brown leopard print, black heels and a black polo neck constitutes as colourful.

Andriy has been wise not to make comments on the English way of life, so it may be unfair to criticise his dress sense. But hopefully he will eventually realise that the life of a footballer does not mean having to wear a tracksuit 24/7.

The couple seem to be modelling themselves on Posh and Becks circa 2003. Andriy with his luscious golden locks tied back into a ponytail and his beau never seen in anything less than a 4-inch heel.

But judging by the photo I think his delightful WAG has got a bit confused. In her leopard print (velour no less) tracksuit she seems to have mixed up her Spice Girls, and she definitely looks scary.

The footballer’s wife is also reported as having said:’ Generally Liverpool is a small city with limited possibilities.’

Liverpool, European Capital of Culture for 2008, obviously does not hold sufficient allure for Yulia. Or perhaps she felt she didn’t stand out enough next to an array of glamorous WAG wannabes.

Andriy is waiting to find out where he will play next season and I’m sure his Black Sea beauty’s comments, made to a Ukrainian paper, won’t help him have a smooth journey back into the Liverpool squad.

Have a look for yourself here..”
