Pocket-Sized Ballers: Do You Appreciate?

image

Lately we’ve been pondering the hotness factor of many pocket-sized ballers that trot around on the pitch like pedigree miniature ponies. 

There are quite a few of these such players that we find rather fetching, but their smaller stature limits our appreciation.

The analysis tends to go like this: Pro, they will fit comfortably and attractively in a WAG-sized handbag. Both portable and pleasing to the eye!;  Con, we have a severe addiction to very tall shoes and thus, we may not even know if they were standing nearby or had pissed off to the pub instead of handing the credit card over to the shop assistant. 

But enough about us.  Do you like your ballers pocket-sized?

    Well they're not exactly stubby, LTG. I like Cesc's height and he's pocket-sized but I'm only about 10cm shorter than him (and 10cm doesn't actually look like a lot) but I'm 15 so I'll grow and when I do grow more, I'll be his height or taller. But for now, pocket-sized is perfect. David Silva is only 5cm taller than me. If I wore high heels, I'd be taller. Scary. <a target="_blank" href="http://roagg.blogspot.com"><font color="#800080">Ramblings Of A Gooner Girl </font><font color="#800080">blog</font>

    i like em tall for me but i think silva is adorable. and i always have a soft spot for michael owen. in my heart i mean. and somewhere else……

  3. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    Haha TFO I didn’t even realize how that would sound. Considering I’m only 5’4″ I won’t be overlooking anyone’s height. ;)

  4. Hellfairy says:

    I’m kind of pocket sized too. So why not?

  5. The Fourth Official says:

    Hmmm. Well, they'd have to be taller than me when I'm in heels. That's about 5' 8". And if they are short, they'd better have an awesome body to make up for it. And a big bank account. And tons of talent.

  6. lose that girl says:

    No. I like some height. Short and stubby is just not hot. lose that girl blog

  7. PlavaDiva says:

    I don't care for their height especially if they're cute and talented:))) BUT, I don't like them smaller than 170 cm, that's just too small.

  8. Stephanie?sBojan says:

    i love pocket sized ballers because no matter how small they are, they're still considered tall compared to me in heels. :)

  9. The Fourth Official says:

    Pavi, were you trying to be funny about "overlooking his height"? Because you made me laugh. :D :D

  10. carly says:

    Usually no but it really depends. As long as they're taller than me, it's not so bad, especially if they look like Michael Owen ;) And I'm not tall so it isn't very hard.

    I tend to be attracted to men who are at least 8 inches taller than me… never knew why. Its just one of those weird things I like. Like feet. But I’m 5’4″, so if theres ever a baller my heighth pop up on the radar, let me know and we’ll go laugh at tall people. And while we’re talking to tall people, we’ll run into poles together.

  15. Sarah says:

    Generally, I am all about the tall boys. I'm 5'8" without shoes, so with certain heels that makes me almost 6'0". Therefore boys over that, preferably 6'2" or 6'3", are perfect. So it's a little weird that my dream baller is practically my height, making him much shorter with my tall shoes. I'd be willing to, as Pavi said, "overlook" Cesc's height (or lack thereof). But no one else's, I think.

  16. justlikexabi says:

    I love Lahm and Luis, height dosen't really matter cos I'm not going out with them.

  17. niksluvslfc says:

    Dude …Silva def ! I love Spanish guys !!! HEs too cute ! But I woudln’t like it if hes shorter than me !!! I’m soooo loving Silva !

  18. ibra honey says:

    tall is good but as long as the ‘ballers have a very pretty face who gives a damn about height?? silva most definitely is hot. and you forgot to put joe cole’s pic up there too.

  19. Mickyb17 says:

    errr nooo!
    Tall men have bigger feet
    ya noe wot they say… a man wiv big feet has a big..yoo noe wat <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />
    and i dont like to look down on my men.

  20. Jasmine Adame says:

    definitely i have a huge crush on silva .

  21. Cherry says:

    I am just a bit over 5’1”, so they are fine with me. Michael Owen by anyone’s standards is stunning. And Silva gets cuter every time I see him. Don’t know who the other guy is.

  22. Ice Princess says:

    They’re cute, but as I am tall and I like wearing heels 4 inches and up that could pose some problems o.O

  23. Maria says:

    They are so cute
    especially VILLA, you forgot to put his pic up there hahaha :]

    Who’s the last one?

  24. mila says:

    ladies the other guy is sergio arguero plays 4 athletico madrid such a cutie pie bless him i’m just shy off 5 feet so i dont rele mind pocket sized ballers but the taller the better xxx

  25. lissette13 says:

    Wheres is Lahm

  26. MrsMichaelOwen says:

    Pavi you know michaels all mine so hands off! And all you with soft spots 4 him…i can see why…gawjus aint he! Im not bothered by Michaels height, as me (with heels) would still be shorter than him. Sooo as MrsXA says "they gotta hold you up once you've drunk too much" Ohh and he will you wait! x

  27. boo says:

    depends on the midget. i have a terribly thing about bellamy, but i'm sure it's more the fact he's a real bitch than his size. and there was roberto carlos… they don't make midgets like that anymore

  28. Emily (Giggsy's says:

    I completely agree with linz826. I'm not a fan of short guys, ballers or otherwise. They just look young to me, like they're not yet fully grown. I know that's mean, but I can't help it. I'm a tall girl (just shy of 5'9"), and my normal height requirement is 6'0". That's the minimum, although I have two exceptions for ballers: one is my Ryan, who comes in at 5'11", so he's almost there. The other is Michael Owen. Dating or marrying a vertically-challenged man would likely make me feel awkward, gigantic and self-conscious, but he's just so gorgeous that I think I could swallow my pride and get over the height difference. Only for Mickey, though… It's that face of his, I tell ya. Phwoarrr…. ;) xo

  29. Anna (Frau Manuel Ne says:

    LAAAAAAAHM *-* the most adorable little thing ever

  30. AJ says:

    I wish I could get into them, but I can't. Guys shorter than me just don't float my boat. Boys are the only reason I sometimes wish I was shorter. What's worse, at 5'8", I look down on average-sized men, when in heels. That sucks. I'd still do Scholesy though. ;D

  31. Venice says:

    No, height is essential. Aside from my weakness for Gattuso, that's one rule I stick by.

  32. Moongirl says:

    No theyve got to be a least 6ft to make it onto my hot list (actually how superficial does that sound??)

  33. Pau de Silva (aka Sa says:

    I ADORE SILVA! I love him over everything else! his technique, his footie skills, his loyalty, his smile, ah! I am in love with the guy. His height doesnt matter to me, really. I simply adore him!

  34. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    Well since I'm on the short side, height shouldn't matter too much. I do prefer men who are about 6'0" though. But I fancy Michael Owen so much that I would be willing to overlook his height.

  35. TammyV says:

    DECO

  36. Jess says:

    I agree with Anna in that Philipp Lahm is adorable and I wanna take him home and have lots of sex and babies. I'm only 5'1 anyway, I'm down with the shorties. Ha pun. Sorry.

  37. Avenath says:

    Sorry, ladies…but who is the dude on the right?…he's kinda hot…anyway, i wouldn't really mind coz am pretty short too 5'2" :( ….heels or no heels, they will still be taller than me…

  38. linz826 says:

    I'm not a huge fan of short guys period–but Michael Owen is probably the only exception I can think of right now–invovling any guy i've ever liked–taller is always important, idk but it is. Owen is very sexy and a baller, so I make plenty of exceptions for him, haha

  39. sassy says:

    I’ve always had a thing for Mickey Owen and his wonderful thighs…the problem comes when he opens his mouth…yawn. And for some reason, Silva reminds me of a short, Spanish Crouchie, wonder if he can do the robot as good???

  40. lady_referee says:

    Hell! Short guys totally kill the mood. I mean… they can be cute and all, but thats it.

  41. EmmaBung says:

    Well, I’m weird. Crouchie’s my no.1 so it would seem that I liked height, but I also love me Philipp Lahm, who is so pint-sized and wee. Sooooo cute though!

  42. aristeia says:

    Tall boys are really attractive, but then again… most people (guys AND girls) are taller than me… so a lot of people can be considered tall to me. There are a handful of the shorter guys that are too hot to deny, so I’m lucky to be short enough to make them seem tall. ;) But… there’s something really hot about climbing up a tall man. Just ask Abbey.

  43. Jesse says:

    TFO you are the funniest. I don’t care, as long as they don’t have same appendages.

  44. Brandy says:

    NO!!!!!! 5’11 is a MINIMUM requirement, it will get you serious consideration, but no promises can be made.

  45. Filthygorgeous says:

    No, sorry – guys shorter than me are a definite no go zone! However I too have a soft spot for Michael Owen. I met him a few years ago and he was so genuine and down-to-earth (no pun intended). However no matter how gorgeous the footballer, if he wouldn’t look out of place on a racehorse, then that’s him wiped off my ‘ogle’ list :)

  46. louisquatorze says:

    Awww. I think they’re cute. Height isn’t really a big issue for me, I’m only 5’3″ and I don’t like heels. An attractive pocket-sized footballer might be nice, then I wouldn’t feel obligated to wear them…

  47. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Nope, I may only be tiny myself, but I want a 6 foooter plus. Teeney tiny men make me uncomfortble, how’re they gonna hold you up once you’ve drunk too much?? It’ll be two smirnoff ices and you’ll be carrying them home! Not good!
