Wayne Rooney 'hits roof' over fiancée's txt from '5am'

'Who's this Sam?'

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

This is very silly indeed: currently crocked Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney reportedly "hit the roof" when fiancée Coleen McLoughlin got a txt msg apparently from someone called "Sam".

According to Ananova, McLoughlin told Marie Claire magazine: "He went on, 'Who's Sam? Who's this Sam?'"

McLoughlin then had to explain to Rooney that he had misread the message and the offending word was in fact "5am" - the time at which the SMS was sent by a friend.

Other delightful revelations in the Marie Claire interview include the fact that the two lovebirds "call Monday night 'Mad Monday' because we watch Emmerdale, Coronation Street, EastEnders and then Corrie again - that's our night in, watching the soaps".

Bless. We hope Rooney is not obliged by injury to spend the whole of June slumped in front of the soaps, because, let's face it, the Liverpudlian footballing dynamo is pretty much England's only hope of overcoming Trinidad and Tobago in the World Cup group stages. ®
