Democracy is power, people. And nowhere is the power to effect change more evident than here at Kickette, where our enquiries into the critical issues of the day are attracting the attention of the world’s most influential press and influencing policy development across the globe.
What? It could happen.

UPDATE: Just as we predicted (ahem) Russia will host the 2018 World Cup. Australia, the USA , Japan and South Korea lost out to that great footballing nation, Qatar, for 2022. Congratulations to them!
Your views on this, Kickettes?
The announcement of where the World Cup is going to be held in 2018 is one that has been gathering a fair amount of attention in recent weeks. (Obviously not in the Kickette office, where such matters are spurned in favour of speculation about short tents and hairdos, but in other football related media. It’s always important to remember they exist, people, even if their priorities are slightly skewed.)
Since we had a few moments spare before Selfridges opens, we decided to take a quick look at the contenders and assess their bids. Properly and everything. Without talking about abs. Can you imagine?!

Midweek international friendlies. From what we can gather, these games serve no useful purpose from a sporting perspective but provide us with the opportunity to perv on players while they’re wearing different coloured jerseys. For this reason, and this reason alone, we at Kickette applaud the international friendly and will campaign for its continued presence in the footballing calendar. Please enjoy our highlights in the meantime.
We’ve said this before and we’ll say it again. Joe Hart looks better when he is not wearing any trousers.
Our initial reasoning for this was our overwhelming delight at his deliciously furry legs, a motivation that is quite difficult to defend without admitting that we have been spending several hours plotting complex fantasy scenarios involving said fur.
