Joey Barton / Amanda Harrington (Newcastle United)

Our scouting team in the North East had a tough time finding a suitably glamorous couple for the Magpies but sources close to the club have revealed bad boy Joey Barton has courted Harrington in the past. The Scouse duo have been spotted stepping out, with Harrington - a former Miss Liverpool at just 16 - certainly not a shy one. She shot to fame, or infamy if you'd prefer, by winning Nuts' Bedroom Babes competition and is a regular in the types of mags that like to keep written content to a minimum. Her calendar has reportedly sold close on 7,000 copies in the UK alone, while she's also proven a hit in America having appeared in two episodes of the Girls of the Playboy Mansion. Harrington's ultimate ambition is to emulate uber-WAG Abbey Clancy by donning next to nowt in Sports Illustrated. Oh, we forgot to mention Barton...he's the midfielder with a rap sheet longer than Snoop Dog's.

Roger Johnson / Melissa Johnson (Birmingham City)

New buck Melissa has certainly put in the spadework in her bid to be crowned queen WAG having released a WAGs Workout DVD with fellow footballer belles Nicola T and Lisa Munday. The skysports.com office swears by it. Melissa's website informs that through her modelling she has 'appeared on TV shows such as This Morning, Poor Little Rich Girls, Footballers Wives, Midsummer Murders, Dream Team and Test the Nation'. We'd rather be stuck in a lift with Vernon Kay without access to a gun than sit through that lot but Roger seems happy enough. The pair, who wed in 2007, are childhood sweethearts and with Melissa quite the looker and Roger widely regarded as being an all round good egg, the Blues duo might just cause the odd upset this season.
