This post is similar to the requisite fall family photo with a pumpkin: we don’t really want to do it, but we know we have to.
About last night: Eden Hazard wore black boxers; conditions were horrendous for six pack spotting; and a lot of teams that weren’t expected to lose did.
In other words, Tuesday’s Champs League was a series of obscurely irrelevant events we think we might have nixed in favour of jammies and a face mask.
What is there to be said about this photo? On a day when we can’t seem to find any form of a reliable hangover cure, not much apparently.
Now if you don’t mind, we’d like to be left alone with this video. Seriously Kickettes, please go.

Just to confirm, we weren’t in charge at the Polish National Stadium last night, we weren’t responsible for rendering the retractable roof inoperable and that wasn’t one of our man slaves in a ref costume bumbling about pointlessly in the resulting swamp.
Although you would be forgiven for thinking it was, given the level of incompetence on display.

Congrats to the club’s female contingent, who beat Birmingham City 1-0 to retain the Continental Cup. They will spend the next three days trying to force the damn thing into their trophy room, alongside the sixteen other trophies they have won since the boys lifted the FA Cup in 2005.
Any chance you could find it in your hearts to give the lads a few tips, ladies?

Rarely relevant, factually incorrect but always pretty.
Welcome to Monday at Kickette, peeps!
