Battle Of The Holiday Hotties: Xabi Alonso v Marco Borriello

They’ve gone head-to-head before, Kickettes. And we all know how that went. But we feel the risk of repeating ourselves is worth it.

After seeing shots of our most-oft visited Monday morning/afternoon/evening fantasy, Marco Borriello, on vacation in Ibiza (with this),  we thought: why not give him a chance to claim his hot Italian place in the hallowed ‘Hell, Yes’ halls of our HQ?

Is Bori your ultimate beachy-with-benefits babe? Or, will you vote for one of our favourite Spaniards, Xabi Alonso, who is in Mallorca with his family, and definitely deserves a place in every girls Most-Wanted list?

Go on, dear readers, tell us who gets your holiday hottie vote this morning?


The Friday Fit: Aitor Ocio, Pre-season Training In Isla Canela

Well, Kickettes. There’s a first time for everything.

Seeing Aitor Ocio training on the beach in Isla Canela has actually created a new emotion within our minds, hearts and loins: anger-lust.

These photos make us mad. Forget NSFW (Not Safe For Work), these are NSFL (Not Safe For Life). They’re irresponsible and completely inappropriate. We’re women trying to function like human women. If you flash us, do we not want?

What has been seen cannot be unseen.

Good luck to any men in our lives, because as of today, they’ve got no chance of even engaging us in dialogue, let alone anything else. And we’re straight up, pissed off at the prospect of carrying on with life when this insanely hot piece of man-candy exists in our universe without us at his side, grating cheese for our jacket potatoes on his abs until our arms ache with joy.


Thx B!

Transfer Totty: Newbies On Premesis

‘Ladies, the market is now open for shopping.’

When this kind of announcement is heard in the Kickette office, it’s generally an excuse for a no-holds-barred scramble for the door, a sight which the few who have seen it (and survived) have described as similar in appearance to a lion-meets-bear pit.

In the case of the football transfer window though, we take a rather more cautious view. You see, we worry about our boys. The all-consuming horror of seeing them uprooted from their safe, warm, friendly clubs and hurled into a frightening new arena where they don’t know anyone and their lunch money is just asking to be stolen is distressing.

We’ve taken a moment to examine a few of the confirmed movers and shakers in the transfer market in order to identify their capacity for survival in their new playgrounds. Anyone up for a game of kiss chase?


Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet


Ashley Cole, knee deep in yet another text-sex tabloid-sell out extravaganza, was in Los Angeles this weekend. As you can see, he’s making friends with women with very impressive hair. (Let’s hope the horse she bought it from got paid well for the sacrifice.) He also made the acquaintance of a lady who didn’t seem to notice her shirt wasn’t covering what it needs to cover. What fun!

Let’s see what else went down over the weekend, shall we?


Mamen Sanz: A Return To Her Modeling Roots


Raul’s wife, Mamen Sanz, and the five children she birthed – yes, FIVE – appear in the July issue of ELLE Espana: twins Hector and Mateo, 4 years old, Hugo, who is 7, and Jorge, 10. Mamen holds the family’s newest addition and only girl, Maria, 5 months old.

Talk about making a grand entrance in the world. We think Maria’s appearance in the fashion and beauty bible is only fitting for the daughter of a superstar ‘baller such as Raul. In fact, her “coming out” party even tops Kai Rooney’s shopping trip with Chanel debut.

If you need yet another reason to adore this woman and her family, how about this: Mamen recently received graduated from Madrid’s Universidad Camilo Jose Cela with a degree in early childhood education. Like any proper football wife knows, Chanel goes with everything – even graduation gowns.

If Raul and Mamen are ever looking to expand their brood, we know a few Kickette staffers who would readily hand in their adoption papers.
