Midweek Results: A Sheer Thing


We don’t mean to alarm anyone, but those shorts Xabi is wearing appear to be almost see-through. Be still, our pounding libidos. Image: Getty Images.

Where would you be without Kickette’s eclectic reporting of this week’s friendly internationals and Euro 2012 qualifiers? Fully conversant with the subject matter, that’s where. And who the hell wants that?


Weekend Results: International Idling

We think at this point we’re supposed to offer you a comprehensive write up of all the International and Euro 2012 Qualifying fixtures that FIFA saw fit to throw at us this weekend, but running with the crowd is tough when caught in the thrall of the fashion world’s current predilection for towering heels.

Hence why we’re going to take a metaphorical sit down on the kerb for a breather and a juicebox while you review the things that caught our attention this weekend.

They may or may not include your team’s results and photos of hot players naked.


Thursday Thigh-Off: Don’t Call It A Comeback


Phone your bosses from your lunch breaks, Kickettes, and feed them a convincing “I’m siiiiiiiick” excuse because this afternoon is finally the time for you to audit some tantalising thighs in the privacy of your own homes.

You read right: everyone’s beloved Thursday Thigh-Off competition has returned – and with a cool new logo to boot. Yeah, we tend to waste much of our time on minutiae such as this.

We’re aware that our recent production of this semi-regular feature has been intrinsically inadequate, but after coming to our senses and realising that footballers’ thighs are to Kickette what an oxygen tank is to a geriatric patient/Sergio Ramos fan girl, we’re committed to making this mentally-abusive relationship (for our writers, of course) work.

Who will emerge victorious? Who will be adorned with the Quad King moniker? Who will care?  All questions will be answered.


The Thursday Thighs: Davide Santon, Italy


From the picturesque hills of the Italian countryside – also known as Package Shrinking Paradise – here is training wheels-eligible Davide Santon’s bulge accentuated by his flat surface thigh. Disregard our unscrupulous efforts to mask a perfectly good Short Tent post as a Thursday Thigh treat, we’re just doing our jobs here. Image: Kickette reader Rossanera’s Tumblr.

Midweek Friendlies: Assertive Ab Adventures

You see the image above? This picture of Danny Agger and his abs was taken by a Kickette Soldier Girl present at the Denmark vs. England game last night. There were other photos, but unfortunately our gal’s next move was to leap the hoardings and race towards Danny, brandishing a bottle of tanning oil and a copy of ‘Tattoo Monthly’ and she was brought down by five burly security men before any contact could be made.  Her camera was damaged in the melee, as well as Danny’s shorts and a couple of innocent bystanders suffered facial scratching.
