Edin Dzeko: A New Star Footballer in a Post-Beckham Era

At one time in his home country of Bosnia, Edin Dzeko didn’t have enough food “for three meals a day.” Today, he stands as Manchester City’s success story, the striker who could: the man with the team’s second highest trade.

At one time in his home country of Bosnia, Edin Dzeko didn’t have enough food “for three meals a day.” Today, he stands as Manchester City’s success story, the striker who could: the man with the team’s second highest trade – at $43 million. Striker, for us in the United States, is another word for forward, and the sport culture under scrutiny is none other than Britain’s infamous football scene. In Germany, Dzeko placed first in a German media poll, of which voters were journalists and fans, as Wolfsburg’s “best player of all time.”

“I’m very proud of the fact that I was chosen as the best of all time. In the short time, we have achieved so much,” Dzecko said in a Croatian language e-mailed statement to Pop Goes the Week. “I am very happy, especially because Wolfsburg historically employed very high quality and good players.” Three years after he joined the football team, Dzecko became the club’s top scorer with 59 goals in 96 games, besting the previous record set of 57 goals in 149 games.

To put this in better perspective for us in America, our favorite boy toy with a great mind matching his Fifth Avenue ad campaign good looks, David Beckham, played for Manchester’s rival team, Manchester United until he was traded to Real Madrid for nearly $56 million. As history is likely to repeat itself, Dzecko is on his way to superstardom and if played correctly, success in sports and pop culture on both sides of the pond. If you don’t like sports whatsoever, you should follow Edin for his foodie stance alone, as he often photographs his meals on Twitter over at @EdDzeko. Homemade Nutella crepes, anyone? And oh, sure, the looks don’t hurt. Expect an Armani ad in the works from him, give or take a few years.

Courteney Cox’s Instagram Caption Is Every Parent With A Teenage Kid

Published

on

Have you heard? It’s 2020 and we’re all supposed to music videos on TikTok. Courteney Cox is no exception. The TV star posted an instagram of her and her daughter Coco dancing it out, with the hilarious caption, “Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them.”

Also, how long does it take to actually learn one of these routines? It seems very time consuming.

What I was really hoping for was video of her daughter losing her patience, but what we got was a pretty strong routine!

Caught On Tape

Former Law And Order Actress Representing Herself In Court? Diane Neal Claims Her Attorneys In Abuse Case Dropped Her, Leaving Her To Fend For Herself

Published

on

In an emotional, now deleted instagram post, actress Diane Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her – leaving the actress who once played assistant district attorney Casey Nowak to try her hand at being an attorney in real life.

Neal has been embroiled in a vicious legal battle that has spanned more than two years. It began when Neal filed a lawsuit alleging her ex, magician JB Benn, was a “manipulative and maniacal fraudster,” who had “defrauded her of millions” and “violently inflicted emotional distress,” according to The Daily Beast. She claims Benn subjected her to “a campaign of isolation, terror and (physical and sexual) assault, and destroyed her reputation.” She also claims he once cut her dogs throat. In turn, Benn has a lawsuit against Neal, claiming she owes him money for property they shared, and that she frequently threatened him. Part of his case: a damning recording in which the female voice, which he claims is Neal, threatens him and his dog. Listen to that tape HERE. It’s intense.

The truth is, the story is so full of battling accusations that it’s probably best to read the FULL list chronicled in this Oxygen article.

But today, in an emotional instagram post which she later deleted, (but copies have which have been retained and posted) a dramatic turn. Neal claims her attorneys have dropped her with no warning.

She speaks directly to her camera phone, saying, “So this is my version of hell. And there he is walking right past me right there” she says, referencing a man whose face cannot be seen. “So, I have been put in a situation by my own attorneys who decided to drop me as a client yesterday afternoon with absolutely no warning, wherein I have to represent myself in court. Because this is what happens to victims of abuse. My attorney yesterday accused me of having an inappropriate relation with (unintelligible**), which is not at all even remotely, a thousand times not true. Has done all kinds of things and … saying it was my fault for being abused. So wish me luck. It’s terrifying, but I am doing this for every woman who can’t do it for themselves. I stand for all of us.”

**please note that the words here were difficult to make out. We have our interpretations but don’t want to speculate without confirmation.

It’s unclear what the nature of the current court hearing is intended to cover today.
