Champions League Observations: Fit and Follicled

Champions League Valdes

Apologies for our party tardiness. The F5 melee that was last week caused us to need intravenous alcohol…which caused us to hit the ‘snooze’ button on the alarms one too many times.

We weren’t the only ones interested in analyzing Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho’s sideline style and behaviour during the Champions League games last week. (Though we will say that we give Pep the fash-points.)

As is per usual, rather than us giving any sort of researched, fact-checked or remotely professional results post, here are four things we happened to notice during the first-leg of the semis:

1. Goalkeeper Eye-candy was at a Premium

By far the strongest showing of sex from goalkeepers all tournament, the first-leg ties of the CL semifinals had us swooning for Victor Valdes (Barcelona), and Julio Cesar (Inter Milan). Coming in at a close, cute second for us was Bayern Munich’s Hans-Joerg Butt. Before you ask – yes, we giggled at his surname, too.

2. Bayern Munich’s Hair Follies


Martin Demichelis has too much of it, Arjen Robben doesn’t have enough of it, and we’re convinced that two of the Bayern Munich managers have the faux kind.

3. The Thigh Show


While the excitement was high throughout Bayern v. Lyon, the teams featured in the first day – Inter v. Barcelona – were much easier on our eyes. So were the thighs of Javier Zanetti, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and, well, most of the players on the field, actually.

4. Injury Treatment We Can Get On Board With
Champions League

Lyon’s Cris was injured. The medics did a sufficient job of treating it. We like looking at this picture of them treating it. That’s it, really.
