This is Mitch Langerak. He’s 21 years old and plays in goal for Melbourne Victory. Yes. We know. Our interest in the A-League has suddenly rocketed too.
We might appear to be drunken hot messes with the moral fibre of, well, her , but we swear we were well-raised. Hence, we can’t help but feel there is something slightly ‘naughty’ about hankering after boys who, while not young enough to be our own sons, currently share an age bracket with our pre-teen siblings and/or cousins.
What we don’t doubt, though, is that we’re not alone in feeling wracked with this young-love guilt. Call it our maternal instincts or our bon-bon group therapy sessions that don’t seem to be working, but there’s something babylicious in the Kickette air. Lately, the barely legal ‘ballers have left us captivated and feeling duurrty. If you’ve caught yourself dreaming of a school (or work) free summer, then indulge, share your nasties, or feign some sort of outrage and phone a hotline.

Long standing Kickettes will recall our previous query on the whole tattoo/’baller interface thing. Apart from frightening us to death with your articulate and knowledgeable responses on the subject (bearing in mind that we write the majority of these posts whilst in glass-to-mouth mode) you seemed to concur with our thoughts – a little ink is a marvelous thing for self-expression, as long as one doesn’t get too carried away. For those that go overboard, well…they just look like tools.
Which leads us nicely to the rather amusing/unfortunate trend: Players and their laydeez declaring underlying love to one another by scratching each other’s names into skin after three dates that just.won’t.quit.
Nicky Bendtner & Caroline Fleming are the latest to fall into this trap, as seen on her left wrist above. In return, Bendtner has scrawled ‘Caroline’ on his right wrist.
If this isn’t the kiss of death for a relationship, then we don’t know what is. (Other than shopping for duvet covers.)
We have concerns in other areas too. Fernando? We love you to death but baby, you’re so young. And Cheryl? Actually, we might leave you alone. You’ve got enough problems.
Think we’re being a bit harsh? Then buckle up. Another self-expression exploration is ’bout to get underway and the permanent results aren’t always pretty. READ MORE
Dear readers, the battle of the Titans is upon us. No, not Inter v. Barca or even Bayern v. Lyon, but something much more important than that.
We’re talking about the fashion face-off that’s about to go down on the pitch perimeters. Tonight, two of the best looking managers in football, Pep Guardiola (Barcelona) and José “The Special One” Mourinho (Inter Milan), are going head-to-head in the style stakes.
Le sigh. What is it about these two? Their yelling, pacing and mad scientist gesturing whilst in designer gear is like a mating call for the modern footy woman.
So, let’s get down to judging. We’ve got a few criteria to take into consideration:
What a lovely Monday present the Wolverhampton Wanderers have generously given us. First-teamers George Elokobi and Kevin Doyle have dropped trou in support of the Everyman charity – the UK’s leading prostate and testicular cancer campaign.
While sickness is definitely icky, nudity is definitely not. Who gets your vote for best in the buff with a prop: George and his ball or Kevin and his shawl? Or do you prefer footy state of undress less…obvious, and in more of a shorts-riding-up-accidentally sort of way?
FYI – Harvey Nichols has also teamed with Everyman to stage a Fashion Show on April 7th at the Molineux. Proceeds from tickets and raffles will benefit the charity. No word if the guys will be nekkid there, too, but we urge them to consider it.

Just hear us out, Kickettes.
In the competitive world of the Wagabee, the tiniest margin can be the difference between success and abject failure.
A key plan of attack is identification of target before anyone else. This means the ability to see through any potential physical flaws of a player to the scrumptious loveliness that may lie underneath.
Case in point: Mr. Marouane Chamakh. Currently playing up front for Bordeaux, this boy has already attracted the eye of one Arsene Wenger and in all likelihood will become big news in the coming months. Bit of a cutie? Maybe. Gourcuff seems to think so, and he’s good-looking enough for us to value his opinion.
But there’s an elephant in the room.
