At the editorial meeting for this post, we thought long and hard about which picture to lead with.
- Should we use this one of Theo Walcott, who scored his debut club hat trick in Arsenal’s 6-0 whipping of Blackpool at the Emirates, and celebrated by gallantly trying to stifle Marouane Chamakh’s backspray?
- And while we’re admiring the scoring prowess (in a good way) of EPL strikers, would it not be rude not to overlook Andy Carroll who put three past a James Milner and Martin O’Neill-less Aston Villa in yet another 6-0 drubbing?
(We’re not sure what’s funnier. The thought that we actually have editorial meetings or that we weren’t going to use this picture of Philippe Mexes’ short tent.)
Our girl crush on Sylvie van der Vaart is well documented here at Kickette.
(And her current Real Madrid midfielder and hot husband Rafael is just an added bonus.)
Rumour has it that he’s headed to a Premier League team and as much as we try to stay away from such chit chat, we are all aflutter.
Sylvie as a Premier League WAG? That = all of our dreams come true. (Quite a feat, considering this.)

Fascinating, really, but facts are facts.
