Thursday Thigh-Off 2.0: Sergio Ramos v. Benoit Cheyrou


TTO footballers thighs

It’s always nice when multi-tasking players like Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid) and Benoit Cheyrou (Olympique de Marseille) take hold of the Thursday Thigh-Off responsibilities for us, insisting we’re too pretty and dainty to bother lifting a finger. Very considerate of them.

Of course, with the immense quadly goodness on display today, picking a winner may be harder than attempting a drive by of the Printemps shoe department during your lunch hour. We suggest you pour yourself a drink, take the phone off the hook and get a note pad to make your comparisons.


Midweek Results: For The Win!


Approaching now from a north-easterly direction we have Flight PK01 from Barcelona. All passengers, please fasten your seatbelts, there may be some impact damage upon landing. Image: Getty Images/Zimbio.

We realise that you may be feeling the first effects of footie excitement withdrawal already. Serie A, the Bundesliga and now La Liga have all been decided, the EPL is all but Manchester United’s and as for Ligue 1… well, okay. We have no clue what the hell is going on there.

But that’s the point, y’see! With so much left to come, you don’t have time to worry about petty issues such as league matches. There’s still the small issues of the Champions League final, the FA Cup final, the Coppa Italia final, the transfer window and of course, the most important part of the football season; Footballers On Holiday!

This fact alone is worth a celebratory conga. So shimmy with us through the Midweek Results and catch up with all the news. No stragglers at the back, please.


Weekend Results: Thumbs Up, Shorts Off


‘Dad? Dad? Are we nearly there yet?! Image: Getty Images/Zimbio.

No amount of placing one’s hands over one’s ears and making loud, discordant and frankly upsetting noises can disguse the fact that we are hurtling towards the end of the football season at an alarming rate. We know, we’ve spent the last month doing it and the only thing that we have achieved is a complaint from the neighbours.

If you have trouble facing reality too, please lose yourself in our Weekend Results post, a pleasure with a limited time frame now. Sob.


Weekend Results: Slip Ups & Shell-shocks


Did you hear what happened at the Emirates??! Image: Getty Image/Daylife.

They think it’s all over.

Well, it bloody isn’t and you lot would do well to sit back down and brace yourselves for next weekend. Kickettes, this could be messy…


Nicolas Douchez: Handling The Hair


We’re not the only ones disturbed by the hair horrors inhabiting Ligue 1 lately. Here we see Rennes ‘keeper Nicolas Douchez taking matters into his own hands when confronted with the calamitous coiff of Monaco forward Chu Young Park. Image: Getty Images/Daylife.
