Calendar Love: AC Milan 2008

Happy Valentines Day Kickettes!


As you can imagine, we’re firm believers in the sham/consumer-driven fiesta of gifts and chocolate that is V-Day.  We plan on digging ourselves out from under a mountain of Swiss truffles around noon, dozing in a champagne bubble bath whilst getting our nails painted in a WAGalicious shade of scarlet and then having a variety of man servants open all our presents so we don’t smudge a fingernail. 


We could also just peruse these calendar photos from AC Milan’s 2008 ‘Gold Standard’ collabo with Dolce & Gabbana. Our new fav? Pato. Holy hell, the geek-chic brace-face reigns supreme.  Think we might have found a replacement toy-boy for #5 Kasper. And please, don’t anyone email us with photos of Pato and pre-pubescent acne. We will refuse to view.

On their ongoing relationship with the team, Domenico Dolce told WWD: “AC Milan is one of few companies worldwide that has a real sense of image and fashion.“  And also, obviously, a true understanding of the importance of men in their skivvies. 

Click through below to view the objectification in the name of fashion and footie. Enjoy!

    LOVE this calendar. Love the outfits, and the players.
    no homo.

  5. Rusty I think you have some serious problems… What’s the point with your uncles and Smudger ? I really don’t get it.

  6. Nic says:

    Here is a little post-Valentine’s Day present for everyone:


    if you go down to world, there’s quite a fine collection of D&G;ads of Milan, and one link/book for soccer in general…

    Get the mops out in advance

  7. Shers says:

    Where the hell is Kaka? Or Andrea Pirlo?

  8. Rusty says:

    Paolo Maldini = OMG.

    But if my late uncle is named Alan (like the Smudger) and I still have an uncle named Paul, isn’t that some sort of incest?

    my word: body66

    Thanks, Gina, for liberating me from foolish notions of convention, good taste and morality.  And I’m definitely old enough to be their mother.

  12. brandy says:

    Smoulder and shudder!!!! WOOWOWOWOWOOWWOOW!!!!!!!

    Who’d have thunk it?! That boy is HOOOOOOOT and TOTALLY gets my vote for #1 boy toy!

    Love me my Latin men! Now they know how to wear a suit, chose classy WAGs and don’t pee on dance floors/get serviced in the loo/send text pictures of their junk. They are simply HOT, TALENTED and CLASSY! *swoons*

    Happy Valentine’s Day all – LOVE YOU!

  13. The Fourth Official says:

    Alberto Paloschi is a junior hottie.  Or is lusting after someone born in 1990 really pushing the limits of good taste for us kickettes?


  14. Gigi says:

    As homoerotic as some of these photos are, I can’t help but imagine what a sandwich of Oddo and Gattuso would taste like….  With me in the middle, of course. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smirk.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smirk" style="border:0;" />

    PS TFO, please don’t give me a heartattack like that again, as we are already five points down. 
    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/shade_mad.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="cool mad" style="border:0;" />

  15. Gina says:

    TFO, I’ve been considering that “I’m older than his mother” issue very seriously and have come to this conclusion. A 44 year old woman having a fling with someone Pato or Ronaldo’s age would be totally indecent. Which means I should do it immediately cool smirk

  16. LoveLamps says:

    Yeah V-Day normally stinks, but Kickette has saved the day with this lovely gift.  THANK YOU!

  17. c9 says:

    Ally, I’m glad I brightened what was a gloomy day for you <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    Just go back and drool, as I have been doing throughout the day <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  18. Ally says:

    And c9: the official link? You are a goddess; thank you.

  19. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    *giggles* I like his style!!
    Bit mean on the day of lurvvve tho eh!

  20. Ally says:

    Pato is gorgeous and I love Gourcuff. So pretty.

    And Oddo: who are you and where have you been all my life?

    Paolo Maldini is beautiful. Seriously a god – men amongst boys. He is perfect.

    Thanks for these, Kickette, you’ve brightened a very crap Valentine’s day.  I hope everyone else had a happy one! =)

  21. The Fourth Official says:

    In the spirit of the day, I offer you this little anecdote:


    I woke this morning to find the SO already dressed, knotting his tie, preparing to leave for a breakfast meeting.  He offers me a kiss, and a “Happy Valentine’s Day, TFO, see you for dinner.”  I mumble something incoherent in return. (I am not a morning person.)  Just as he disappears through the door, he says over his shoulder, “Oh, by the way, there’s something on the news about Ronaldo totally f**king his knee last night.”  I’m awake now.

    “Which Ronaldo?” 

    “I dunno.  Is there two of them?”  (SO and I share a passion for many things, but football(ers) is not one of them.)

    “Shit!  Oh shit!  Wa-wa-wa was it the Portuguese English Ronaldo or the Brazilian Italian Ronaldo???”  Visions of the Premier League title win are dissolving into a mist and I’m starting to sweat a little.

    He is distracted by something on his Blackberry.  “Hmmm.  I’m not sure to tell you the truth.”

    Desperate now.  “Well, was it the cute Ronaldo, or the ugly Ronaldo?”  He seems nonplussed.

    I scramble for the remote.  Flick on the sports news.  “AC Milan striker Ronaldo . . . . . . “

    Waves of ecstasy wash over me.  When that passes, I glare at him.  “You assh*le.”  He grins and gives me a wink.  “See you later, hon.”


  22. Elise says:

    Oops- I got lost on the ‘men in skivvies’ link and posted there.  I’m not seeing alot here to set my heart (or anything else) aflutter, but I do like the black and white photography, which is a big hobby/obsession of mine. 

    Happy Valentine’s Day!  I"ll be disconnected for much of the day.  How will I survive? lol

  23. Shell says:

    Hot, Hotter and so much f***ing hotness!!!!!
    Aaaargghhhh- so many totally hot men, i can’t choose one for my desktop….never mind, i’ll change it daily….OMG!! Maldini’s eyes, the shower shot, pato…and KAKA!!!
    Thank you, thank you and thank you again.

  24. c9 says:

    No, don’t. Don’t thank me, I THANK YOU kickette for bringing all the wonderful subject matter to our attention day in and day out! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/surprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="surprised" style="border:0;" />

  25. kickette says:

    Thanks c9 for the official link xx

  26. The Fourth Official says:

    WOW.  That is truly stunning. 

    I need to concentrate fully – will get back to you later. 

    Happy Valentine’s Day, kickettes!

    Exactly what I was thinking!

  28. helena says:

    kickette, thank you so much. YOANN is unbelievable.

  29. sarabee says:

    Happy Valentines Kickette! Thankyou for our gifts…..swooooon…..Italian men…..sigh….. Pity theres no pics with a bit more Cornetto on show though.

  30. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Happy Valentines Day all my lovely Kickette’s kiss

    Now to the men in hand (if only eh!) Pato is cute, well this was my thought from the first two pictures but the last one, well, *wit wooo* (that’s me whistling btw). He has a fine body on him!! YUM!!

    Alberto Glardino – where have you been all my life??! He is flamin’ GORGEOUS!!!
    And Yoann Gourcuff look’s pretty tasty too.

    Thank You Kicette, me likey, a lot!!

  31. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Gina don’t try and make your comment’s the other day sound OK.  I still think your off your rocker woman!!:LOL:
    And I don’t actually fancy Kaka so maybe that’s why i can see the Tevez thing!

    Hmmm good point c9, maybe I should get over to Italy and latch onto Pato before he becomes household hot?!  Then I can be like all the women we hate for getting their man in their teens!!  I can handle a few geeky years if it means I get a real man in the end <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_rolleye.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue rolleye" style="border:0;" />

  32. lulubelle says:

    yes! Yes! YES! YESSS!!!


  33. c9 says:

    Oh, MrsXabi, to add on, on Pato, can you imagine, the only thing holding him back from looking to young and geeky is the braces.

    Once those babies are removed can you imagine the hottie factor this puppy will produce. He will be the next biggest thing since Cristiano removed his braces! Pato already has the body, the hair and the footie skills that will drive any woman wild!

    I’m already picturing him with his post braces off <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />  Kickette must keep an eye on this one and effectively remove Kasper and replace with Pato <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/cheese.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="cheese" style="border:0;" />

  34. The Fourth Official says:

    This shower is getting awfully crowded.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/mad.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="mad" style="border:0;" />

    You know, Mrs. Xabi, you are absolutely right.  I looked at Kaka again and he *is* Tevez -  if Mr. and Mrs. Tevez had had a chance to do it again and get right.  Weird . . .

  35. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    I’m not sure how it happened, but I popped on the computer for a quick five minutes and now 2 hours 37 minutes later I’m still staring at these pictures…………

    Thank you c9 for the link, it has made me think a few things.

    Gourcuff is seriously HOTHOTHOT!! I think I’m in love with him!
    Pato I thought was nice until I see the braces, sorry but they make him look verrrry young and geeky.  Not feeling them at all!
    c9 if your not in that shower, you mind if I hop in?? Dayyyum that man looks good!! Can see me running my fingers down the muscular back and then moving down to his tight bu…………….Sorry lost myself a little there.

    Oh yeah and does anyone else think Kaka looks like a better looking version of Tevez????

  36. Nic says:

    OMG C9!!! I lied! YOU just gave me the greatest Valentine’s ever! Oddo… What I wouldn’t do…

    God I really should NOT be looking at this while at work.

  37. c9 says:

    Yes, I automatically pictured myself in the front of him. <*goosebumps, hot flashes*>

    To have that finely chiseled body dripping wet, with his hands all over me……

    I think I need to stop now and have a smoke <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/embarrassed.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="red face" style="border:0;" />

  38. Anja says:

    Pato’s cute but… Dov’

  39. gracie says:

    OMG pato is soooooooo cute!!!
    Im 16 so im allowed to think the braces just make him look EVEN cuter =D
    Apparently he only turned 18 a couple of months ago so i might just learn italian and move there now!!!

  40. c9 says:

    hahaha, yeah I’d probably be giving some of that hoochie. I mean who can resist, REALLY! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/ohh.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="ohh" style="border:0;" />

    You know I take care of my kickette girls. I’m here everyday and if I’m not, I’m defo thinking of it! Can’t get enough, and this post is one of the reasons why!!!!

    Anytime you need it, kickette’s there <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

  41. Gina says:

    And who was chastising me the other week when I said that if Tevez fixed his teeth he might have possibilities?!?!?!?!?!

    Just remember when it happens: Gina is an effing psychic LOL

  42. The Fourth Official says:

    Oh my gawd, c9, that is just beautiful.  You are my BFF.  I’m gonna turn that into my screensaver.

    Don’t you just *know* that those guys get so much hoochie that it isn’t even funny?

  43. c9 says:

    Yes, men with fine clothing, half clad muscular bodies, piercing eyes and numerous other things that just make you say DAAMMNN….do that to ya’!

    Trust me I haven’t closed this yet and don’t plan to unless I’m dying. hehehehehe

    MrsXabi, your most definitely welcome, and yes, you may jump in that shower IF I’m not in there wink  But I don’t know how you can compare our ever so lovable Kaka to Tevez. I mean the shot is close up and not very flattering, but he is still Kaka….the ever so fine and tall and sexy and ……..

  44. The Fourth Official says:

    The one of Oddo in the shower – f**k me, that is just . . . . . the look in his eyes . . . holy . . .crap . . . .  <TFO slithers off her seat into a pool of drooool . . . >

  45. c9 says:

    Okay, Kaka was a model for Armani before and under contract so he didn’t model the last time, but there is a picture of him which you can find in the link below.

    TFO, I can do you one better. Here’s the link for the WHOLE calender. The names of the players will be listed below the pictures…ENJOY salivating, as I have been doing so far gulp



  46. Erinti says:

    Manflesh! I approve.

  47. Becca says:


    Hes Cute But I Dunno, Theres Something Im Not To Sure About.

  48. tammyv says:

    HAPPY Valentine’s day to us!!  Thank you my darling.  Brilliant

  49. Nic says:

    O…M….G… This post just gave me the greatest Valentine’s Day ever!!! Oh lord… Gilardino… I literally audibly squealed at work.. Maldini’s eyes are piercing my soul…

  50. brandy says:

    OMG, I just looked through those pictures again and I don’t think I am okay… that is just too much sexiness in one dose! Who else thinks Paolo Maldini has the sexiest eyes EVER?! I LOVE the Gourcuff and Brocchi pic – WOWZA!!!

    Signing off – need to go lie down for a few days to recover!

  51. The Fourth Official says:

    Kaka probably thought it was immoral to pose for lust-inducing boy-toy calendar shots. And so right he is.

    Now back to those lust-inducing boy-toy calendar shots . . .

    Geez, those boys really know how to rock the knitted neckwear, don’t they?

    Can someone do a left to right naming-of for me? I need to do an excel spreadsheet of this.

  52. Meriam says:

    ummmmm, where’s Kaka?!?!

    Carrying on, I think I’m going to move to Italy, because if all men in Italy look like this then tere really is no point in languishing in England, too far away from Ronaldo, Fabregas and anyone else worth drooling over.

    Again, ummmm, wheres Kaka?!?!

    It’s great being younger than most footballers – I’ll never have any guilt about indecent toyboy affairs unless hotter ones come along later…  wink

  53. carly says:

    Thank you! Thank you!  grin

    I have to say some picture are a bit gay but they’re still fiiine …
    I just love Gattuso, he looks great in that picture. Pato isn’t bad but he reminds me of a 12 year old vampire.

    TFO – fantastic story! I imagine if it was C-Ron that ruined his knee the world would have ended before you had the chance to wake up from your sweet dreams. wink

  54. IshYEAH. says:

    Maldini and Gourcuff… oh yeah :D
