Today’s hotter-than-July lies… 1. Mauro Zarate to Arsenal The on-loan Birmingham star (pictured) is on the wish list of one big-four club, at least according to his agent.

After the end of thrilling, spilling Prem season, Pies dishes out its gongs Player of the season: Cristiano Ronaldo Right now, C-Ron is the Premier League.

C-Ron loves a man with a baby face Take two Man Utd stars into the shower? Ole and C-Ron look like a couple of the fresh-faced guys you might see in a Gay Chat phoneline advert. The hand on the knee makes it all the sweeter.
