MLS Observations: The Newbies Steal The Spotlight

We never complain about supplying a necessary ego stroke once in a blue moon around Kickette HQ – but today its your turn, passionate-MLS-readers-who-send-e-mails-daily-lobbying-for-the-American-soccer-league-to-get-some-regular-play-around-here!

So…yeah, we’ve devised this feature for today, which is always the first step in getting us commitment-phobes to accept some sense of accountability for our actions. For now, we pinky-promise to think about preparing this kind of coverage every Saturday, and we’ll even use our Statue of Liberty Lady-shaped champagne flutes at breakfast to remind us about keeping our word.

Until then, comments/criticisms and any other type of acceptable feedback should be submitted for us to mull over a bar of Green & Black’s dark chocolate.

Rather than bore everyone about our hatred for Monday mornings, we’ve taken the more mature route by telling today to ‘suck it’.

Boy did that feel good!


- Carles Puyol’s girlfriend, Malena Costa, was busy teaching Barcelona the next ‘big’ thing in goal celebrations over the weekend. That, or presenting Zumba fitness in Madrid.

- Sheree Murphy kindly confirmed for us that yes, her husband Harry Kewell gives her pregnant feet ‘the best’ massages. . Although she’s been living in England for many years, we also learned that Sheree’s temporarily moving to Melbourne and will give birth to the couple’s fourth child in Australia. All the best to the Kewells!


Belated Birthday Wishes: Thierry Henry Turns 34

Monsieur Thierry Henry, one of the Kickette HHOF originals, happy (two days ago) 34th birthday!

Really, what isn’t there to say about the tall deliciousness man who is King Henry? He has proven that good looks know no boundaries, despite the occasional cardigan mishap. We’ve watched Henry’s career trajectory with the utmost of our limited attention spans as he moved from France to Italy to England to Spain, before finally settling within walking distance from one of our staffer’s favourite New York Fashion Week hot spots. Even more so, Titi’s given us cheap thrills and endless amounts of quality material for our dirty daydreams – two things that are the core of our existence.

Here’s to you, birthday boy! Now get over here so we can give you a good birthday spanking.

Asking us to ‘do something’ to David Beckham feels like a trick question.

Probably because it is, but play along as you wish, people.
