We’re aware there’s a new season. We think you’ll agree that’s fairly impressive by our standards. Images: AFP/Getty Images; Julian Finney/Getty Images.
Mark your day planners, Kickettes: new Ligue 1 season starts 10th August, the EPL & La Liga on 18th August and the Bundesliga & Serie A on the 25th.
As we’re sure you’ll understand, this is a tremendously busy time in the office. But in between our experiments in national flag nail art and undetected desk sleeping (neither have been particularly successful), we’ve compiled a list of things we’re looking forward to across the European leagues.
Read, digest, then add a few of your own, why dontcha?
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?

Ink suppliers in Napoli breathed a sigh of relief earlier this month, when top tattooed totty Ezekiel Lavezzi signed for Paris St Germain for a fee rumoured to be in the region of £24m. PSG’s audacious plan to hoover up all the mad talent in Italy before anyone else notices continues apace, with Milan’s Thiago Silva agreeing a deal just last Saturday, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic rumoured to be on his way.
That would be a shot in the arm (not to mention a kick round the back of the head) for our Ligue 1 results round-up, no?
But wait. There’s more…
What’s Wojciech upset about? Has he just realised that he will spend the next season dressed in pink, despite protesting in the most vociferous manner possible when the idea was mooted last time around?
Or is he just entering into the spirit of things now his colleagues have gone all emo for their new away shirt? To be fair, none of them look happy about it.
We’ll look forward to that one with interest. But in the meantime, it may surprise you to learn that pink n’purple are not the most shocking colours to appear on a kit release this week.
