Pull out those curlers and get the coffee on, Kickettes, we’ve lots to catch up on today.

Oh, and yes, we are still intoxicated from last night’s PSG vs Chelsea game. More on that later.

How was your weekend, btw?

Awww, what a tender moment between Mr & Mrs van der Vaart on holiday that the paps have graciously eavesdropped on for our benefit.

Sylvie’s body? Yowser, that’s a diet plan we can support and a personal trainer(?) we want to marry.

New ‘Baller In Town: Dirk Kuyt to Fenerbahce

After six years of never having to walk alone, Dirk Kuyt has left Liverpool for pastures new. A tough season at Anfield prompted rumours aplenty about Dirk invoking a clause in his contract that would see him leave the Reds for as little as a million pounds, and just a few days after the Dutch side were dumped out of Euro 2012, his move to Turkish titans Fenerbahce has been confirmed.

Dirk’s always been a loyal servant to Kickette, providing us with joyous moments such as this, and the odd drop-jaffa-cake-into-cup-of-tea moment too – like this.

Are you sad to see him go, dear Liverpool supporting readers? Or would you like to wish him nothing but success in his new city’s night clubs?

Last week was yet another battle of the physically and aesthetically superior.

So we’re a few days late, but you know you want in anyway.


Euro 2012 In Pictures: Denmark vs Portugal, Netherlands vs Germany


The Euro 2012 Group O’ Death action soldiered on Wednesday and here’s our two cents about it:

Denmark: So, we know next to nothing about this team. Except that Bendy wore green pants that we’ve never seen before. We thought we’d seen all of his pants, so we’ll go with that.

Portugal: Some of the players need several soft-bristle brushes and a good conditioner to properly prep for game days. An excess of testosterone bodes well in footy matches, but when Ronaldo doesn’t have the energy or desire to whore out his body, you know he’s had a bad day.

Netherlands: Wesley Sneijder’s torso. And that tattoo. Oranje fans have suffered with this enough but Ibrahim Afellay is so refreshingly cute, he makes us want to skip through meadows and wear petticoats.

Germany: Well, they had this loveliness up front. Also up front, Mats Hummels. We assumed teams only needed one muscle-bound, vein-bulging footballer to win a game. So, congrats on that.
