World Cup 2010: Four Years In The Making


It’s here Kickettes! We made it! To coin a phrase from our girl Lainey, it’s Jumpy Claps all round.

Are you freaking out? We. Totes. Are.

We started anticipation-eating last night, and we plan on gaining at least a stone in solid liquorice nibs by the time this is over.

We’ve got lots of fun stuff to get to today, including our own WC(!) predictions, but let’s start things off by getting straight down to business.

Here’s what we’re asking our legion of footy-mad, footy-clever and footy-fantastic readers:

1. Who do you think will win the World Cup this year?

2. Who do you want to win the World Cup this year?

3. Where will you be watching the games?

Here’s what we really want to know:

4. Which player? If you had to choose. Just one. And you know exactly what we’re talking about.

Talk to us, ladies.

We’re petrified to venture down this path, Kickettes. With the disastrous injury/skankocity woes of the England NT recently, it seems almost foolhardy to single out any of the team for special mention in case we invoke whatever deity of destruction is following them around and someone ends up on the plane home. Still, it’s amazing what a couple of sneaky drams on the hip flask will do for one’s confidence.

Here’s our Hottest Five England World Cup Players list. Whilst reading, we ask all relevant fans to keep their fingers crossed. Just in case.
