It remains to be seen whether any of these Dutchy dolls in diapers will end up having a better week, but we want to remind all our Kickettes to break out a pair of super cute shoes and get to matchmaking asap!

Comings & Goings: Javi Garcia, Irina Shayk & Robert Lewandowski

Welcome to the Sopot Sheraton Hotel in Poland, where the Ireland NT will be free to enjoy all of the benefits of being an elite athlete.

In moderation.

Obviously, Giovanni Trapattoni’s recent statement had the Kickette Masssive on high alert, so we’re particularly interested in the environs of the Sheraton, because with any luck we’ll be spending lots of time there.

Our first sighting does not make us feel optimistic. We have seen The Shining, y’know.

Gareth Barry and James Milner were on the golf course in Spain when they got the England squad selection news. Fitting. Image: Warren Little/Getty Images.

Three weeks before kick off, we were starting to get a little panicky about our coverage strategy for England at EURO 2012.

That would’ve seriously impeded our ability to snark over any divisions that *may* occur during the tournament, ya know what we mean?

Then this morning came and Roy Hodgson decided to include JT in his squad and omit Rio. Thus, our strategy is safe.

We seem to be the only people this works for, though. #Hodgsonout was trending on Twitter within twenty minutes of the announcement.

First spotted on Lowes Miserables Live Journal by reader, Anna.

They came. They saw. They scowled.

Four players from the German NT (plus Dennis Aogo, who failed to make the Euro 2012 squad) appear on four different German GQ covers in June: Mario Götze & Dennis Aogo (to be circulated in Northern Germany), Manuel Neuer (East Germany), Bastian Schweinsteiger (South Germany) and Mats Hummels (the luckiest part – West Germany).

Which cover do you hold to the hottest esteem Kickettes?
