Missed any important action this weekend? Well, firstly you should be ashamed of yourselves, as we slaved over a hot Weekend Preview post so that wouldn’t happen.
Second, why don’t you just pop to the off-licence, purchase a bottle of their finest champers and Fed-Ex it to Kickette HQ by way of apology? While we’re checking out the quality, you can catch up with those all important results.

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!

Spiked egg nog may boast ‘Have A Drunkenly Forgettable Merry Christmas’, but nothing says ‘Happy Horny Holidays!’ quite like Sarah Brandner in a bubble bath.
We’re not sure what holidays everyone here celebrates (but are open to hearing more!), but most of our staff grew up believing that Santa was real and Grandma couldn’t ever make our favourite homemade cookies because she got run over by a reindeer.
Ever since the ‘advent’** of WAGs, things have clearly changed.

There were substantial scorelines, touching tributes and what must have amounted to an entire deck of cards across the European leagues this weekend.
Why waste time pontificating? Let’s dive straight in there and roll around in it, Kickettes!
We have two takers for our next viewing of ‘Return Of The Jedi’.
One of us accidentally padded out our football viewing this weekend with episodes from the Star Wars trilogy.
Can you take a wild guess at which staffer that was?
