Brisbane Roar: Score, Strip, Then Start A Brawl

There were some ugly scenes that followed Brisbane Roar’s 2-0 victory over Sydney FC in the Australian A-League recently, after Brisbane striker Besart Berisha scored his side’s stoppage time-winning goalhe removed his shirt (not ugly) and gestured for Sydney FC’s Pascal Bosschaart to follow him into the tunnel to ‘sort things out’ (where things proceeded to get ugly). Apparently, Berisha was angry with Bosschaart over comments he made during a previous fixture between the two clubs.

Usually we wouldn’t bother to cover such a ‘handbags at dawn’ event but because there’s been a dearth of manflesh lately, we thought that you, our beloved readers, would appreciate some nekkid. We did.

Sheree Murphy’s in the home stretch of her fourth pregnancy and could go into labour at any moment now.

In fact, thanks to her and her husband’s precocious progeny – plus exposure to those tiny photos of him naked – we might do the same.

Alright, so it’s not the end of the season, but when was the last time we missed an opportunity to publish pictures of footballers and their delicious offspring? Never, that’s when.

Sydney FC held a training session with their babies yesterday and of course, we were right there to bring you all the best shots.

Obviously not actually right there. International flights are a legal no-no for us right now and probably for the foreseeable future.

Considering the problems England had trying to get permission to wear a poppy on their shirts recently, we’re surprised FIFA went for this festive addition to the Augsburg home kit. As we all know, (and Jonatan Germano of Melbourne Hearts (left) found out to his cost this weekend) referees are obliged to punish players who ‘reveal advertising, religious or political slogans’ after goals.

Refs will show no leniency for innovative methods of smuggling such slogans onto the pitch, such as stuffing them into shorts. And for once, we can’t help but agree. Short-tent study is an important part of what we do here at Kickette, and our scientific findings would be seriously compromised if this kind of thing caught on.

Bad man, Jonatan!

Regardless of the mind-bending confusion this image causes us, all the legs we can see are remarkably muscular and hot. Criteria fulfilled, then. Image: Robert Cianflone/Getty Images AsiaPac.
