Robinho & Mario Gomez: Hot In Hats

Hats. An easy, functional, one step solution if you’ve been too drunk and/or lazy to wash your hair. We’ve all been there.

But a little known bonus fact is that hats are also capable of elevating an individual’s hotness quotient by up to 30%**.

Whether Robinho (above) and Mario Gomez (left) have brought out their headgear in order to conceal an outbreak of ‘party’ hair or simply want to avail themselves of a cute boost, we neither know nor care.

We admit, Robinho’s trucker 2.0 style and Mario’s pork pie variation are tricky to pull off, but we think both boys make ‘em work. You?

You know, we’re seriously reconsidering our policy of feeling vaguely dirty when perving on young boys. It does us no good and quite honestly, it’s expending vital energy we could otherwise be utilising surfing the interweb for handbags.

Busy lives, people, busy lives.

Are we over the relative disappointment of Yoann Gourcuff’s signing for a Ligue 1 club instead of an EPL one? Not really, but we’re mildly comforted by the news that Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has signed the delicious Raul Meireles from Porto for the princely sum of £10.7 million.

We had budgeted something closer to £20 million for player purchases, but unfortunately we had a big weekend planned and the Kickette transfer fund is somewhat depleted.


Weekend Results: Good For You?

Now we know why there are beds in the Real Madrid training complex – they’re for the players to hide under when the team begins the season by dropping points against Mallorca. (Especially since Barcelona made certain of their three; goals from Messi, Iniesta and Daveeeeed Villa supplied a convincing victory away at Racing Santander.) FYI, Barca’s Victor Valdes (and our EXI keeper) contributed via this awesome penalty save whilst preserving his sexy. Elsewhere in La Liga, Sevilla’s 4-1 away win at Levante ensured they hold top spot.

Phew. That was a lot of official sounding reportage for a bank holiday Monday. But we’ve started, so we might as well go on.


FIFA Comes Through: Sky Italia To Broadcast From Changerooms


No longer will we have to wait every year for Dolce & Gabbana to bring us behind the scenes with their infamous underrific advertisements. You can now have these scenes repeated weekly.

Dreams do come true, Kickettes. Or, in this case, delusional diatribes sent to FIFA during a late night brainstorming session can actually start coming to fruition.

We know. We’re scared too.
