UPDATE: Just as we predicted (ahem) Russia will host the 2018 World Cup. Australia, the USA , Japan and South Korea lost out to that great footballing nation, Qatar, for 2022. Congratulations to them!

Your views on this, Kickettes?


The announcement of where the World Cup is going to be held in 2018 is one that has been gathering a fair amount of attention in recent weeks. (Obviously not in the Kickette office, where such matters are spurned in favour of speculation about short tents and hairdos, but in other football related media. It’s always important to remember they exist, people, even if their priorities are slightly skewed.)

Since we had a few moments spare before Selfridges opens, we decided to take a quick look at the contenders and assess their bids. Properly and everything. Without talking about abs. Can you imagine?!


Midweek Results: International Friendlies & Funsies

Midweek international friendlies. From what we can gather, these games serve no useful purpose from a sporting perspective but provide us with the opportunity to perv on players while they’re wearing different coloured jerseys. For this reason, and this reason alone, we at Kickette applaud the international friendly and will campaign for its continued presence in the footballing calendar. Please enjoy our highlights in the meantime.


The Sizzle Query: How Do You Like Your Iker?

Simple Q&A as a fun exercise for our enthusiastic, extroverted bunch of footy aficionados: which state of undress suits Casillas best?

A) Shirtless, because an Iker hip dip sighting of this caliber is rarer than seeing Halley’s Comet

Real Madrid Spain keeperB) Sans bottoms, which helps speed up the front-door-to-bedroom-door timing and execution

C) Unsure, because the thought of Sara Carbonero’s freshly-cut bangs sharing sink and mirror space with the aforementioned man once they move in together has sent your brain into a downward spiral and you’re unable to make an accurate judgment at this time.

We’re really liking our new ‘Survival Of The Hottest’ category. Not only is it expanding our knowledge of evolution and the human gene pool (always handy when queuing for drinks), but it really gives us the opportunity to unearth some seriously unmissable talent. Let us elaborate for you.


Lorena Bernal: The Leather Skirt /Media Flash Situation


It’s not every day that we find ourselves following the fallout of a baby food presentation.

But, we are the site that goes wherever the story takes us (unless there’s a bar on the way, in which case our arrival at the destination is far from certain), so here we are.

At a publicity event in Madrid last Thursday for baby food brand Blevit, Mikel Arteta’s wifey Lorena Bernal took a seat on the floor as she interacted with the babies and jars of infant mush.

So far, so meh.

However, during her floor work, she accidentally gave the various flashing bulbs in attendance an eye full of her knickers. Which, (as you’ll see below), were white.

Unsurprisingly, the media chose to focus upon this rather than the benefits of feeding Blevit to a growing baby, leaving the lovely Lorena embarrassed and unwilling to complete her media interviews as scheduled.
