QOTD: Frank and Geri and the Motorcar


image: dailymail / big


Er, what the hell are Frank Lampard and Geri Haliwell doing in the same car? 
How do either of them have any sort of knowledge that the other exists?
Why is this friendship (?) so freakishly disturbing, yet utterly compelling to us? 

Answers, Kickettes.  We need answers.


Quote of the Day: Alex Ferguson on David Beckham


“He was never a problem until he got married. He used to go into work with the academy coaches at night time, he was a fantastic young lad. 

Getting married into that entertainment scene was a difficult thing – from that moment his life was never going to be the same.

He is such a big celebrity, football is only a small part. The big part is his persona…

It is difficult with David going there [America] – I don’t know what kind of impact he can make. David Beckham himself can’t change the whole country.“

He’s sexy, he’s kicked that nasty little cocaine/viagra habit, and now he’s got his own reality TV show.  Life is good. 

Adrian Mutu’s “Life as a Sexy Beast”* will be airing in America, Romania, Italy and Latin America.  The United Kingdom is not considered important enough to deem a viewing. 

*Our assumption on what the show will be titled. We can’t read Italian. Anyone who wishes to tell us what the hell this story says about the programme, we will be forever indebted.  Cheers Brandy/The Offside for the scoop.

No one knows WAGs like we do. Except for Cricket.  They know WAGs weller than the wellest.  But outside of retail establishments and a few plastic surgeons, we’re there.  Kickette guest blogs for the boobalicious sports site, With Leather, about the top WAGs in the EPL.  Link: EPL Preview, With Leather Style

imageWho knew she had it in her?  The lovely little Melanie Slade goes toe to toe with Roy Keane over his WAGs Are Ruining The Country rant.  She recently scored high on her A-levels, and says, “From what I’ve seen of the wives and girlfriends, they’re just normal girls doing their best to support their husbands and boyfriends.“ 

Please let no one question the normality of the WAG lifestyle again. Mel Slade has spoken.  With her huge ass diamond ring sparkling all the while.  Link: As Theo Walcott’s Girl Melanie Proves

Quote of The Day: Roy Keane v the Softies



“I can name four big players and clearly their wives and girlfriends are running their lives. They do photoshoots and all that stuff.

They say they are not comfortable doing it — well don’t do it. Obviously it’s their partners and they are dragged along.

And these so-called big stars are people we are supposed to look up to. Well they are weak. Soft.”

UPDATE – Fanbanta has an exclusive interview with Nicola Tappenden, Bobby Zamora’s ex about her reaction to Roy Keane’s allegations. In short, she says he’s talking “absolute sh*t.” Check it out here.

The Finest Five: The Shortlist Review…


… is in session.  We expect to have some definitive updates soon. We just need to look at a few more photos/games in HD and stalk a few more players’ lounges.

It’s rather telling, we think, that the most popular post in Kickette history is the one that asks who the best looking player in the game is

It’s why we do what we do, dear Kickettes.  To everyone who commented, continues to comment, scoures to globe for players we need to know about, and mistakenly calls out the name, “Kaka!“ when in bed with their partner, we are forever bonded to you. Pinky swear, stamped it, double-oxted it.

Now we must get back to compiling our Finest Five shortlist.  We’ve narrowed it down to double digits.  And yes, it might just involve you, Carlos Bocanegra.
