There’s no butts about our game watching habits this weekend – we simply gave our slimming selves complimentary passes to forgo our regular homework.
Fill us in on any or all the things you found pretty, peculiar or just plain mad from the last two days, puhlease Kickettes? We can’t promise we’ll be anymore attentive after the fact, but it’ll help distract us from Park Ji-Sung’s frog-juice drinking habits.
Bastian Schweinsteiger looked ready to do battle following his return to light training with Bayern Munich five days ago.
Pause and recall with us, Kickettes, how Schweini tore ankle ligaments in the German Cup quarter-final win at Stuttgart on 8 February, which was only his fourth game back after breaking his collarbone last November. It sucks when any of the ‘ballers near and dear to our hearts are crocked on the sidelines (paging Aaron Ramsey) because it makes our jobs a lot less exciting.

This lady is employing a classic Kickette distraction technique. Watch and learn, everybody, as she casually points to a random object in the middle distance, waits until her mark (in this case, the deliciously dressed and entirely unsuspecting Raul) is sufficiently engaged and then pounces, hurling him to the ground and doing what we all would, given this level of access.
Poor baby. He doesn’t stand a chance.
