The Grab: 04.03

Violence? There's no violence here. Manchester United issued warnings for the estimated 5000 fans that will descend upon the Stadio Olimpico, claiming there is a real danger of being attacked by ultras in the Italian capital as the Reds meet AS Roma in the first leg of the CL quarterfinals. Listing the Campo de Fiori and particular routes to the stadium, the club effectively pinpointed ideal areas for traveling fans to set things off. [ITV]

Do you miss the World Cup? Or do you miss the female talent exhibited during the massive quadrennial tournament? The good lads at Who Ate All The Pies gives us a little retrospective.

As Goldenballs returns to training (how does he find the time?) with Real Madrid, a few opinionated fans of the dead-ball specialist and future greenthumb of American soccer have made their feelings about his wife known. While I think DB's past his prime and extremely overrated, I have to agree that he definitely married down. And so does someone else, enough to have more than a couple of t-shirts made. [FreeBecks]

Speaking of, er women, or at least highly flawed ones, it sure was nice of Wayne Rooney's 17-year old cousin Natalie to bring some eleganceto Coleen McLoughlin's 21st birthday party. The best part of this piece is the revelation that Coleen prepared a booklet for her guests to help them behave properly. Pure class [The Sun]
