Weekend Results: Good For You?

While we were busily obsessing about what Sylvie Van Der Vaart was going to bring to the Premier League, we completely neglected to outline what her hubby has to offer. In light of recent events (above), we realise the error of our ways.

It’s a travesty. And we are truly sorry.

Suitably chastened and by way of apology, we would like to offer us our regular (and always thrilling) whistle stop tour of the other important results in this weekend’s games. We only hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive us.


Belated Birthday Greetings: Alexandre Pato & Javi Martinez

Yes, we know. This was yesterday.

But between Cescy’s Twitter announcement and Marco Borriello’s … er… face we simply didn’t get around to it.

Happy 21st, Alexandre, and happy 22nd to Athletic Bilbao’s Javi Martinez ( left); your birthday yesterday was also sadly overlooked during our donut/perv fest.

Come on, there’s surely enough cute in this post to make up for it!?

Mesut Ozil & Sami Khedira: Lost In Spain

When we saw this image of Mesut Ozil in training with new club Real Madrid a couple of weeks ago, we have to confess that once the initial squeaking had died down in the Kickette office, we were slightly bewildered.

As connoisseurs of footballing bodies, we are rarely exposed to tubby little torsos; something like this being rather more our in comfort zone.


The Midweek Mmm: Iker Casillas


Kickettes, please take this opportunity to enjoy Iker Casillas, dressed casually in beige stripes and standing in a reverent manner next to a selection of men (above) and large, important rocks.

You will note that it is unlike us to promote images such as these, our remit being something rather more in this area but this was a special occasion and we are duty bound to report. FYI, Iker and the rellies were in hometown Navalacruz, where a ceremony and presentation was taking place to commemorate his overwhelming hotness.

Okay, so it was a ceremony honouring his footballing prowess, but hey. The hotness is there to be commemorated too.

And commemorate we will. Just as soon as we find our house keys/pants/hip flask.
