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?
