Post World Cup non-glory, some of our favourite English lads have headed off to spend time with their significant others. What else do we have now but to judge their apparel?
In London, Frank Lampard left his Chelsea flat (with g/f Christine Bleakley);
In Southport, Captain Steven Gerrard had lunch at Bistro Verite with his two daughters and wife Alex (she wore clogs. Soz. Had to mention); and
In France, David Beckham headed to Bargemon to be with Victoria and their three boys.
Which of the back-to-reality boys gets your vote for the best style-whilst-sad look? We think they all look rather good, but it’s hard to out-do Becks when it comes to casual cute.
You gotta love family holiday snaps. Whether you’re caught cross-eyed, looking green after a boat ride or coming off a waterslide with your bikini bottoms around your ankles, they’re never good, are they?
Thank goodness we have the Arshavins. As we know, Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin isn’t shy about taking part in entertaining photo shoots. While in the Maldives on vacation, he and the family have been relaxing, playing tennis, jet-skiing and… posing.
Yes, it’s always tragic when a holiday comes to an end, but we will not be sad to see some of these sub-par shots go.
At the end of the don’t-wanna-watch-anymore-footy-’cos-we’re-pouting-and-depressed,-damn-it day, this much we know is true: their kids are scrumptious.
With everyone dressed in their Monday afternoon best, The Rooney family enjoyed one last meal together in centre-city Liverpool before Wayne departed for South Africa with his national teammates. How many designer labels can you properly ID on Coleen? We counted four: Birkin, Christian Louboutin, J Brand and Louis Vuitton.
Star Wars geeks, try not to lose your mind over this mix of footy, Snoop Dogg and “The Force”. For shizzle!
Everton’s Jack Rodwell launches their new away kit with a striptease that could have used some Kickette consulting for better gyration.
Steven Gerrard likes Lucozade.
Hot men with earrings. It can happen.
Kickette gives Dirty Tackle readers a basic insight into footy hotness.
Hapy b-day to Germany’s Lukas Podolski!
Drama over the Dutchy Dress.
James Corden + Wayne Rooney = LOL
Bordeaux deny that the Premier League could be getting 75% better looking.
Just in case you forget, Ash.*
*Oh, fine. Nike didn’t actually make Ashley Cole wear that exact shirt, the Kickette photoshop monkeys did.
FYI, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Ash were at Niketown’s “No More Talk” event on June 2nd, prior to heading to South Africa.
After the sadface news today, we’re going to go with a “No More Injuries” branded tee, though, cheers.
Belated birthday bumps are in store for Andrey Arshavin (29) Steven Gerrard (30!) this week. So let us raise a glass (or six) of celebratory champers and wish these two a fabulous birthday.
Although Andrey (May 29th) looks like a baby-faced boy scout, our fave Russian hobbit is 29 years of age with an adorable family to boot. May the next year bring him lots more lols, more random quotage, and the answer to what keeps him and his wife Yulia looking like they sip from the fountain of youth, so we can place our bulk order, natch.
While Stevie G. (May 30th) looks more his age, we can’t help but wonder what the “dirty thirties” will bring him. Another forehead wrinkle? Another nifty leather jacket or more cutesy photo ops with his adorable fam? Perhaps a new Liverpool BFF to replace the luscious Xabi Alonso? Whatever it brings, we hope he has a fabu time, and a better footy season than this year.
So Kickettes, raise your glasses, and if you spot these two EPL birthday boys out and about, drinks are on them!
