Kickette Catch Up: Your Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

While one or two of the more hardy Kickette staff bothered to hit the “Post” button during last week’s HQ holiday in America, the majority of us took the “happily buried beneath shopping bags, blissed out and blessedly unaware of the outside world” high road.

That was, until this morning.

If you too have found yourself back at your desk for the first time since discovering it actually was possible for you to drink your own weight in tequila, here’s a quick rundown of what (we think) happened while we were MIA.

Any mistakes, please forgive. We haven’t technically opened our eyes yet.


Lazy Links & Randoms

We’ve been inspired (or de-spired) by all the ‘ballers on breaks as of late, so Kickette HQ is spending what’s left of our American holiday at spa-filled pastures new. Due to insane time zone differences and not wanting to get salt scrub in our iPhones, our normal posting schedule will resume on Monday.

Have a great weekend, Kickettes!


Tuesday Torso: Edgar Davids


Retired Dutch national footballer Edgar Davids (plus his girlfriend Olcay Gulsen, not pictured) put some clothes on before making his way into St Tropez’s Nikki Beach.

Lips & Layers: Pepe Reina


As most of you know, expecting anything cohesive from us during the later stages of a Friday is… ignorant, frankly. So, much as we would like to speculate in great and gory detail about our favourite Liverpool keeper’s lips brushing up on another woman’s pout (who isn’t us or his wife), we’re going to be realistic and keep things short.

Reina went with a blue on blue on blue colour palate for dinner at Casa Lola Restaurant in Puerto Rico last night. As usual, he had the untucked shirt, sexy-in-a-scarf GQ steeze down to a science and was rocking the hell out of that sun-kissed, tanned skin of his.

We give Pepe’s overall aesthetic an A++, and that’s without grading on a Frank Lampard dirty denim curve. You?

Harry Kewell: We’re Torn


Mr Kewell sat court side at The Manchester Evening News Arena during last night’s Great Britain v USA Mens basketball game.

The hair we hate, the smile we love.

For the first time ever, we’re not head over heels with the state of off-the-field Harry’s grooming and dress sense.

Is it us or is it him Kickettes?
