Dates For The Diary: New Season, New Excitement

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?

We are:

- Anxious to see if any player is worth their dressed at gunpoint salt in Serie A besides Kevin-Prince Boateng? If a ‘baller that fits this bill does present himself to us, our anxiety will run high if we can’t convince either to settle their style differences in a winner-takes-all mud wrestling bout.

- Planning to focus in earnest on the newly assembled parts of Arsenal’s team, with a nice dose of Aaron Ramsey for extra Photo Friday joy when need be. “All Aaron, All Day” has a nice ring to it. Incidentally, when we say “newly assembled parts” we’re totally thinking about Olivier Giroud’s baguette magique.

- Curious if anyone plans on giving the cameramen of La Liga a year’s supply of cookies in exchange for long shots of players in their skanties all season long? It’s a matter of national urgency, Kickettes.

- Taking bets on how long until Zlatan Ibrahimovic unleashes his inaugural Ligue 1 Bitchface. The good money is within the first ten minutes of PSG’s fixture vs. Lorient, but a couple of our more excitable interns are going for footage of Zlats kicking a team mate in a training session emerging before a whistle has even been blown. Either works.

- Worrying whether the necessary precautions have been taken by Borussia Dortmund’s kit designers to accommodate Mario Götze and his rampant midfield. We so hope not.

    I'll take the one holding an "R" please!

    The thing I'm dying to find out is how long it will take before Mario Gomez takes his jersey off this season. I'm hoping it will be a personal record. Say, 30 seconds or something like that. Right after he has scored his first.

    Bayern boys looking equal parts adorable and sexy-as-hell.
    Newly assembled parts of Arsenal is right! Between Olivier and Lukas (and the potential for All Aaron, All Day), the sexy is definitely being brought.

    Can't wait for this season!

    Stop being so damn cute Müller! Well, no don't stop, but if you could be much much closer to me while being so damn cute, that would be awesome.

    Can't wait for this season! Football is the best reason to day drink, eye some smokin' hotties, and yell a lot. And I might have an actual TV for the first time in 2 years. It's gonna be a good season.
