Good Week/Bad Week: Lies, Allies & Neuer’s Statistics

Doin’ It Like A Dude: We’ve enjoyed watching Manuel Neuer respond with quiet dignity to his status as public enemy number one in Germany. You know, all the hating at Schalke because he left them followed up by the hating at Bayern Munich because he signed for them. So it gives us even more pleasure to tell you the cute ass keeper will rack up 1000 minutes of clean sheet-ery if Bayern don’t concede against Hoffenheim on Saturday. Mama was right, Kickettes. Revenge IS a dish best served cold. You know, like borscht.


Josip Mikulic: Seriously? You Have To Ask?


Dude, concentrate on the game! Not on those photos of special ladies you’ve got on your phone! Image: AP Photo/John Smierciak.

These two gentlemen are Sean Johnson and  Josip Mikulic from MLS side Chicago Fire. They were caught arguing on the pitch during the Fire’s 3-2 victory over New England Revolution last weekend.

‘Why would I care?’, you’re probably asking yourself between delicate sips of Cristal. Well, for starters, just look! In Josip Mikulic shorts! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It’s his… well, you know darn well what it is.

Just take a moment and savour this, friends. The world of football doesn’t bestow gifts like this very often.

This impromptu photo obviously begs the question, what in the world were these two doing there?! Image via AEG’s twitter.

Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet


You know, Miss Monday, we really wouldn’t object to you using one of your sick days in the near future. After all, that’s why we offer them to you.

But don’t even try rolling them over into 2012 because they’re non-transferrable. You either use them or lose them, so let’s make it count.
