Lazy Links: Thighs, Skanks and Knock-Offs


imageRemember Victoria Beckham’s rather fabu number from Roland Mouret, worn for the big Beckham presentation in LA?  You can now get a knock off of the dress at TopShop for £60. Named “The Victoria”, these bad boys are flying off the shelves, even though they look like they are made of the cheapest man-made fibres money can buy and could potentially cause you to break out in a polyester rash whilst attempting to rock the fierce.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we love our readers. Case in point, the lovely Blair has set up a Facebook group specifically devoted to football’s wide range of thunder thighs. The inspiration? Our much loved, not-oft updated weekly (okay, more like monthly…ish) Thigh-Off competition. Please do drop by and join if you’re so inclined. Melanie Slade is a member.

The Finest Five: Who Belongs?


Kickette’s Finest Five list has always been a controversial one with our readers.

We take a lot of heat for Becks’ place at the top of the list, even though he is going nowhere else.

We may never recover from being told point blank that one of our favs, Freddie Ljungberg should be taken off the list because he is “old.  and BALD.“ That shook us to our very core, it did.

No one, inclucing ourselves, understands our attraction to the arrogant acid-wash denim wearing Cisse, and our love of Mutu leaves most lukewarm.

A casual question about Cristiano Ronaldo (currently in second place) resulted in a comment section battle royale…

Is it time for an overhaul of the Finest Five list? Who is in your finest five list?

Try not to exhaust yourselves, this can be taxing work.

Kickette Celebrates 365



It’s our birthday!

Kickette is a year old and we don’t look a day over 6 months. All that champagne swilling and bad mouthing of WAGs obviously does wonders for your skin.

As most of you will assume – correctly – we’re not doing a scratch of work today, but instead plan on spending time catching up on our beauty sleep and nailing down the last few details of our LA Galaxy infiltration David Beckham stalking plan.  It involves faking a physiotherapy degree. That’s all we can say on that.

Anyhoo, we will be back blogging on Friday.  Or maybe Saturday.  But definitely Monday.  Thank you to everyone who comes to visit us, you’re all lovely to look at, you smell good and you have fantastic hair.  And, we love and adore every one of you.  Especially the ones who send us inside tips. We love you the most.

Here’s to another year of snark, gossip and footie love.  Cheers all, have a drink on us!

The Sizzle: David Beckham and Reggie Bush


YouTube Preview Image

David Beckham has teamed up with Reggie Bush to film an Adidas commercial about football (US) vs futbol (everywhere else).

Earlier this week we saw the photos of David in an American football uniform and were amazed at how little it did for us.  We realize now that David’s talent comes from being a) shirtless b) in shorts and c) not standing next to a hot US pro football player for comparison.

Anyhoo, what we failed to investigate was the extreme levels of sizzle coming from his footie mate, Reggie Bush. Granted, he has a most unfortunate name, but yowser this man is about to break our Finest Five for the 10 seconds of soccer he plays in this ad.

What If: Alternate Plans for Ballers

Wayne Rooney and Coleen McLoughlin have been holidaying in Vegas. Reported activities include: drinking, sleeping, pool drinking and sleeping, gambling and possibly cuddling, if these attached photos haven’t been doctored.

Within this busy schedule, Wayne found the time to drop in on the Ricky Hatton vs someone else boxing match on Saturday night. Looking at this photo, we started thinking how much better suited Wayne Rooney would be to another career. If you went by sheer looks alone, surely Mr. R would be laying some good bricks whilst swearing like a trooper and whistling at women walking past the scaffolding where he stood, eating a bag of cheese and onion crisps listening to Kiss FM. Or, he would be a boxer – and a mean one at that.
