With so many goalkeepers pulling out of the England squad as of late, we’re eagerly awaiting a call up call to the Kickette office. We figure that it’s only a matter of time before Fabio Capello runs out of options and seeks help from the leading proponents of football fluffery. It’s a long shot, sure, but we’ve packed for a heavy Joe Hart ‘training’ session.
Hey, it could happen.
Guyliner: what’s your take on Adrian Mutu’s inner-eye rim job?
We might encourage the impression that we’re hardened harridans who, when not falling-over-drunk, can usually be found criticising some poor individual’s dress sense, but we are actually quite tolerant. Quite frankly, we don’t care whether you’re male or female, play for Real Madrid or Rotherham United, as long as you rock an individual style and look sexy while doing it, we don’t give a crap.
See, not as shallow as you thought, huh?
Since our record at reporting impending births has recently been confirmed as ‘spectacularly bad’, we thought we’d skip our morning muffin to bring you this breaking baby news.
According to reports, Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard and his wife Alex are expecting their third baby. Alex is ‘more than three months’ preggo, so we could be looking at a brother or sister (the couple don’t want to know the sex, but are apparently hoping for a boy) for Lexie and Lilly-Ella in November time.
Congrats to the family Gerrard, who are reportedly ‘much closer’ since they found out. Which is kind of obvious. Since he put a baby inside her. Hee.

If our confusion over which games were friendlies and which meaningful at the weekend was bad, imagine our horror when confronted with last night’s maddening fixture schedule.
Fortunately, most of the Kickette staff were able to make it into the top secret work avoidance bunker (the toilets) before our dear editor could assign the round up, so we are
relieved pleased to be able to bring the you highlights via a special photo post.
We trust that the time honoured technique of including a photo of Yoann Gourcuff in said post will distract you sufficiently to allow us to get away with it.
