A View From The Sidelines: Fondlin’ & Foolin’

Marcelo can’t contain himself any longer. Is Cristiano a real boy? Image: AP Photo/Daylife

It doesn’t start and end when a player steps onto the pitch, y’know. Although most of our attention is rightly focussed on the field of play, the occasional bouts of nudity and repressed violence we have born witness to on the sidelines have taught us that the activities of people not directly involved in a match can be just as interesting.

Please enjoy some of the examples we found in today’s desperate scramble for post ideas that we like to call an ‘Editorial Meeting’. 

There’s no need to look so smug, Edinson Cavani. We may have bypassed your perky cuteness in our haste to get to Marco Borriello, but your progress has been noted. The Kickette Army will get to you in due course.  Image: Getty Images/Daylife

It is common knowledge that all of Spurs’ potential transfer targets are shown a photo of Peter Crouch naked, to see how they cope in stressful situations. It wasn’t looking good for Diego, who after four and a half hours, was showing no signs of recovery. Image: AP Photos/Daylife

Franck was inconsolable when Yoann gently explained that despite the efforts of Philippe Mexes, they had been unable to resuscitate his pet hamster. Image: Getty Images/Daylife

Manuel Almunia ponders the set of circumstances that led to him watching ‘Mad’ Jens Lehmann in goal for Arsenal. Don’t worry, Manuel. Several thousand Arsenal fans were wondering the same thing. Image: Reuters/Daylife

Jose couldn’t figure out why no-one would sit next to him and a roar of laughter went up every time he was shown on the stadium monitors. Sergio Ramos, who moments earlier had been seen running from said stadium brandishing a pair of scissors and six inches of grey trouser cuff, knew exactly why. Image: AP Photo/Daylife

Got any of your own pics you’d like to share with us, Kickettes?

  4. rubyqueen says:

    if i was that close to ronaldo i wouldn't be able to keep my hands to myself either.that guy is just too damn perfect.:)

  5. FloraJane says:

    Aww, poor Jose. Well I would most definitely sit next to him, short trousers or not!! And I'd probably even try to convince him that I needed to sit on his lap…to save space you know…..!!! LOL

  6. Maya says:

    I LOVE marcelo he’s sooooo funny he’s one of my favourite players

  7. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Bad bad ramos, I will spank him Jose, no worries ;) . Then, I will come and keep you company oh my jose, we need more of you over here on kickette.

  8. mel says:

    Poooooooor Diego!! I think everyone can understand how traumatic that experience must be. He should immediately take off his shirt!!!

  9. mochara says:

    Awwwww Yoann, I'm so happy he's able to forgive Ribery (ugh how I hate him…) how perfect is he?!
    And Kickette I love the hamster bit, I nearly died laughing =D

  10. Eira says:

    Hey Marcelo, I have a philosophy class in 15 min I’d rather not attend. Wanna trade places?

  11. Marie says:

    I can totally picture Sergio pulling that trick on Mou!

  12. @mezz98 says:

    Sigh. Loving the cuteness that is Marcelo & Cris.

  13. Cammie says:

    Marcelo and Cris have such a cute Bromance

  15. Zahara says:

    you know, i first thought it was rafa nadal in that pic of edinson cavani.just for a second.

    yoann is too amazing and he should be back in finest five.

    lol @ marcelo

  16. Maria V says:

    Dear Kickettes!
    Get to Edinson Cavani SOON!!! And also Ezequiel Lavezzi, while you're wondering about in Napoli ;)

    • GigiSantaCruz says:

      Couldn't agree more with what you asked for girl!! I've had a crush on Cavani and Lavezi for quite some time now and I think Kickette should make up for this terrible mistake of not giving attention to them by showing some shirtless pics of them ASAP!!!

  17. Por dior says:

    The real show in real madrid´s last game was Marcelo trying to speak english with Adebayor
    Marcelo is just adorable.

    • MadridistaJenn says:

      As if I needed another reason to love Marcelito more. He is too cute for words!
      Thanks for putting the link!

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      The Marcelito, cris broromance thing is soo cute, he is the life of the party ovethere, petit Marcelo, I love him, he is sooo cute!

    • Leya_S says:

      This is way too cute, lol.
      Everyone always looks like they're having so much fun when they're around Marcelo.

    • WAG2BE says:

      cris, looks so hot in that suit *sigh* =( its really too bad he. . .is himself =S. BUT ANYWAY, they all looked like they were having so much funn :D , cute vid!

  18. JA7 says:

    To touch a footballer like that is one of my greatest desires *sigh* LMFAOO i love how mourinho is sittinggg :P & Cavanii u are adorableeee <3

  19. chay says:

    kickette, i love the caption for diego forlan! i would be scared to see crouch naked as well hahaha!

  20. Rory says:

    Oh Marcelo, I couldn't resist touching Cris if I were you either!

  21. Gladys says:

    For someone who showed so much hostility towards Lashes during the WC, Ribery just can't seem to keep away from him! He's in every photo. I half expect to see him insert himself into a Lyon game.

    • sarrible says:

      I am concerned about the proximity. I don't want anything about Ribery to rub off on Yoann, not his propensity toward hiring hookers, not his weird face, NOTHING! Rien, Yoann, do you hear me?!

    "Sergio Ramos, who moments earlier had been seen running from said stadium brandishing a pair of scissors and six inches of grey trouser cuff, knew exactly why."
