MMA star ruins Baby Elvis' plans

Last Updated: 15/05/12 10:04am

Baby Elvis isn't the happiest man in the office this week after Randy Couture pulled out of this week's show.

"It's definitely not pink, burgundy and pink are two different colours."


Quotes of the week

The Mixed Martial Arts legend was supposed to be paying us a visit on Saturday and that usually means our resident 'keeper is in for a bit of pasting (see The Rock, Chris Ashton and NFL star Ndamukong Suh).

Now we know what you're thinking, surely he should be doing cartwheels at this news, except for the first time a dodgy knee meant we were going to let him nominate someone else to step in as the office punch bag as Couture pulled out some of his trademark moves!

Worst of all he had already picked out Ash to receive some punishment and we doubt the Derby County fan will be forgetting that in a while!

Inflicting pain on members of the crew aside, the launch of Arsenal and Newcastle's new kits have caught everyone's eyes.

It's that time of year when all the clubs give us a look at what their players are going to be wearing next season, and Chris, Ash and Bobbie took the roles of Gok Wan, Trinny and Susannah to critique them in the office this week!


The Gunners launched their kit with a video in which Wojciech Szczesny smacks Arsene Wenger's car with a ball in the kind of scenario which would feel more at home in a 'Neighbours' titles sequence!

We're not sure who would play Szczesny but we reckon Lou Carpenter would be a good fit for the role of Arsene Wenger.

It wasn't the video that annoyed Chris though, it was the kit itself:

"I just don't get the sleeves," said the Southampton fan. "The bottom half looks like the French flag!"


Well he's got the colours right, but it actually looks more like the Dutch flag and if that's what it takes to keep Robin van Persie at the Emirates next season we doubt there'll be too many Arsenal fans complaining!

Ash, meanwhile, was less than impressed with Newcastle's new away kit but had trouble describing it.

"Has anyone seen Newcastle's new away kit? It's pink!"

"No it's not, it's burgundy," replied Bobbie.

"Well it's sort of pink. It's like a dark pink."

"It's definitely not pink, burgundy and pink are two different colours."

Another example of the manly conversations that go on in the Soccer AM office!

See you on Saturday!
