The Finest Five, 2.0

image

As promised, if you look to the left you’ll see the new and improved Kickette Finest Five list. Not many changes, but assessing hotness cannot be rushed. We anticipate a few more moves in upcoming weeks.

We are already aware that our list heavily favours foreigners from a specific region of the world that seems to produce hotties by the metric tonne. No need to re-inform us of our bias, thank you.  Remember, lust lists are – and should remain – entirely subjective.  Please fill us all in on your thoughts, personal top fives and so forth.

 

(to see our original list, click here.)

THE FINEST FIVE

ADDITIONS 

5. Frank Lampard, Chelsea FC

image

We must pre-empt the inevitable hysteria of this decision by stating for the record that Frank Lampard’s admission on the Finest Five list is for a limited period only. He is not a perma. Repeat, he is not a perma. 

However, we have found lately that when Lampsy isn’t rocking glittered jumpers or other such fash-trash, he rather does fill out a pair of jeans quite nicely. The thighs are not to be denied, of that we concur. 

(Warning, Liverpool fans, look away now). What opened the list up for Frank when we’ve been so wishy-washy before? Witnessing his mental strength in the CL semi’s when he stepped up to take a penalty just days after losing his mother to pneumonia. We’re far from softies, (and in fact, were staring at the television in horror at what we thought was sure to be an excruciatingly awful miss), but when Frank pulled that off, under insane amounts of pressure, we felt something go a quiver. We love us some mental strength in the face of adversity.  In any case, we never thought the day would come, but Frankie, you’re on the list. For now. Please see “Bubbling Under” candidates below and be concerned.

SUBTRACTIONS:

Kaspar Schmeichel, like most toyboy crushes, we’ve outgrown you. To be honest, you enjoyed way too long a spot on the coveted list simply because of our napping schedule, and that was irresponsible. We doubt you will return, but keep taking your vitamins and perhaps one day we’ll remember what team you play for.


THE KICKETTE HALL OF FAME

ADDITIONS 

Paolo Maldini, AC Milan

image

The more time passes, the more we appreciate. The more we appreciate, the more we want to feed Paolo tiramisu whilst he smiles sweetly and flexes his legs. It’s not just his historic level of play that is such a sizzle-factor for Paolo, it’s the style and panache and full blown swagger he’s got at levels triple that of the average bloke. And he’s Italian. ‘Nuff said.


BUBBLING UNDER:

image

Carlos, your time to shine is approaching.  Nando, you’re nearly there. We are starting to feel the love. Florent, we feel we may have judged you and your stellar cheekbones too soon and too harshly. We’re thinking you need some serious reconsideration. And Roque? You deserve a list all your own.

  5. caquark says:

    Only have 4 spots for footballers. One is reserved for a very yummy hockey player. The usual suspects take up the remaining 4 slots (Roque, Cannavaro, Toni) with the exception of one that I never see mentioned on Kickette. One of my slots goes to Oswaldo Sanchez (Santos, Mexican Nat'l. team). Happy to see him on the pitch in person during the Mex v Arg friendly recently. As good in the flesh as in the photos :) Here's a couple for Kickette's enjoyment… <img src="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f43/kali27/sanchez4.jpg&quot; border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f43/kali27/oswaldo-sanchez2.jpg&quot; border="0" alt="Photobucket">

  8. Alexandra says:

    My list: Kaka Andriy shevchenco paolo Maldini fernando torres cristiano (sometimes when his hair isn't all jelled) and i can't leave out… Alexandre Pato (I love him!)

  9. Rusty says:

    A – “trade” obviously means “have him transferred.“

  10. Emma says:

    Aww. I’m so glad Lampard’s entered your list. What he did on Wednesday propelled him into a very special place in my heart. Love him so much, and I hope he stays at Chelsea.

    I’m probably in the minority here, but I don’t care for Ronaldo at all. In fact, I’d probably say that Rooney, Avram Grant and Sir Alice Ferguson are less ugly than him. But that’s just ‘cos I don’t like the greasy look.

    And I have funny taste anyway (just wait ‘til you see my number 1)

    OK, mine:

    The close but no cigars:
    Kevin Kilbane – he’s such an underrated player and a true sportsman and I love him for that.
    Joe Cole – oh, lovely.
    Michael Dawson – he has the nicest smile I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
    Salomon Kalou – such a shy, sweet player.
    Paulo Ferreira – very, very sweet. Wayyyyyyyyy hotter than Tina Ronaldo, in my opinion.
    Michael Ballack – he’s bringing sexy ba(lla)ck
    Frank Lampard – just really quite hot
    Michael Johnson – his cute smile, his long blonde hair… squee

    OK, and now the top 5:
    05. Gareth Bale – he’s my age! I’m gonna marry him! He’s just really cute and innocent looking.

    04. Andriy Shevchenko – even though he plays about 10 seconds per match for Chelsea, I still relish in looking at him. Adorable and hot.

    03. Petr Cech – not only the best goalkeeper in the world, but one of the few diamonds in football; an utterly nice guy and a good person

    02. Robbie Keane – the blues eyes, the passionate attitude and the Irish accent do it for me.

    and er…. I’m not gonna say no.1 because everyone will just laugh.

  11. Tracy says:

    Ooops, I meant that they just look so sweet all the time. Sorry for the error!

  12. Zatil says:

    Ok, so here’s my personal Top 5:

    1. Kaka
    2. Nando
    3. Cesc
    4. Iker Casillas
    5. C-Ron (stays here till he dumps Whoreida and fix his hairstyle)

  13. Tracy says:

    Paris, have you seen his wifey and bubba? They are just look so sweet all the time.

  14. Paris says:

    I know Tracy no one ever understands my little Van Persie crush he is h=just adorable definatley finest five material

  15. AJ says:

    Um.. that happy face after my Cristiano comment is looking a little smug. Would’ve liked him to appear joking, as I meant him to. I do, actually, understand why some don’t like our Ronnie… just for the record.

  16. Anja (Miss Red) says:

    Nando instead of Frank and Agger instead of Cristiano and I’m happy.

  17. AJ says:

    As a Man Utd fan through and through, I cannot put anyone else in the top three,

    1. Cantona – Can’t believe he doesn’t ever get mentioned. Too much time passed, perhaps? The man was sex on legs. Pure unadulterated masculinity with an artist’s heart…I’m a sucker for it.

    2. Keane – A commanding, never say die attitude and a killer set of green eyes and thick thighs. Absolutely scruptious. He can boss me around anytime.

    3. Cristiano – I know folks don’t like him, but be honest, if he played for your team, you’d love him, admit it. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />  Extremely talented firstly, and absolute decadent eye candy, secondly. Currently can’t be beat imo.

    As for the rest, I can get down with:
    - Ballack, sacrilege I know, but Sunday’s coming up, I can repent.
    - Hargreaves, just cute as hell.
    - Iker, hot as hell
    - Lampard’s not my cup of tea but I’ve been going through a mama bear, wanna cuddle him kinda thing lately.
    -Bocanegra’s dimples and big brown eyes make me proud to be American.

    Any infatuation with an Arsenal or Liverpool player must’ve been eradicated by a secret, hidden society of Man Utd supporting hypnotists because I truly can’t think of a single one. No offense to Nando, Gerrard, Henry lovers out there!

    P.S. Maldini’s eyes (and face) make me want to hide in a closet with a garlic clove necklace. You girls sure do like ‘em scary lookin’ lol.

  18. Tracy says:

    Oh, there are so many things, I have no idea where to begin.

    Robin van Persie- Paris and Cesc’s lil bird, thank you for showing the love! I always get funny looks when I mention his hotness. Has a cute wife and adorable son, btw.

    Mathieu Flamini- Love him and adore him, but his recent contract problems with my beloved gunners has put a dampener into things.

    Phillipe Senderos- I am totally converted Moongirl, after the sizzle query. I am so on your bandwagon!

    Armand Troare- OMG, A., I have no idea that anyone has heard of him before, unless they are some diehard gooners, like me. So yes, totally agree with the fact that he is a total hottie.

    Pato- nuff said!

    Niko Kranjcar- Thank you kickette, for alerting me to his hotness.

    Yoann Gourcuff- definitely him, Mrs. Xavi. No deliberation needed at all!

    Lukas Podolski- Again another round of thanks to kickette for alerting me to this delicious piece of hotness.

    Nicklas Bendtner- Oh goalkeeperette, I totally dig the tattos and the blond hair. And the height and built, god I am melting! Gosh, and I thought I was the only one crushing on his uber badboyness.

    Roy Keane- I understand the love for Roy, my dear Fourth. Although I probably should not be crushing on him due to the age factor.

    My very own Finest Five (Arsenal)
    1. Nicklas Bendtner
    2. Phillipe Senderos
    3. Robin van Persie
    4. Mathieu Flamini(would be higher, if not for..)
    5. Armand Troare

    My Personal Finest Five (Non-Arsenal)
    1. Niko Kranjcar
    2. Joe Hart
    3. Lukas Podolski
    4. Yoann Gourcuff
    5. Pato

  19. one_love=cesc_fabreg says:

    well i dont mind the addition n the subtraction… iker still doesnt deserve the spot definately!!

    but wat the heck my cesc made the list n still retained position!! to the gals at kickette i love u guys 4 the cesc appreciation thang <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    i really hope roque makes the next cut coz there’s not one person who deserves to be in there more than him… ok probably move everyone up n make roque the 5th… hehehe

    but i could dig the list for the time being.. povided CESC sweetie stays!…

    good work girls!!

  20. beccalfc says:

    I cant believe that nando isnt on there again!!! He is AMAZING!!! But he does need to sort his hair out,, but apart from that he is perfect!

  21. Kimothie says:

    Please, please, pleaaaase give Boca his proper moment in the sun! 

    …and by that I partially mean “in the warm tropical sun with me, doing keepy uppys on the beach, whilst our attractive, dimple cheeked children splash in the calm waters.“

    I also mean that the man is damn fine and should be in the top 5.

    Kim’s Finest Five:

    1. Jose Mourinho- I know, I know.  I can’t help it.

    2. Boca- the man is just delicious.  DELICIOUS.

    3. Paolo- Good God.  I’d forgotten his sexiness for a few moments.

    4. Owen Hargreaves- I agree that he needs to resolve this ongoing hair issue, but he has incredible eyes.

    5. Cesc- I’m 26, and he’s like…20.  So it feels a bit dirty to lust after him properly.

    I just want to add that I was at work watching the Man U./Barca match (it’s part of my job, so it’s alright) and one of my coworkers walked past just as Cristiano Ronaldo was shirtless and dumping a bottle of water over his head.

    She paused, and said: “I really think I’m beginning to understand why you love this game.“

    More and more ladies are learning every day!

  22. Rusty says:

    A, I’m definitely one of those people who doesn’t like popular things, whether or not by choice. I stopped liking what’s now my favorite band for a while after their song hit #1 on the charts. (Unfortunately for my “sensibilities” they are superduper popular in Boston.) I never liked New Kids on the Block, and they were “the band” of my generation.

    Back before I actively followed the Revs, there was a picture of Twellman shirtless that I kept for ages, but about last June, I got sick of him. If I hadn’t thrown it out, I’d scan it for your website wink I don’t actually hate him, though. I wish I could trade him to your team, wherever it is, so you can keep him for yourself and I don’t have to hear his name on a daily basis.

    I wish that could happen with Cristiano Ronaldo too. Maybe he could change his name and people could neglect to tell me what it’s been changed to? It’s as if the more I’m forced to deal with his alleged overall amazingness, the more I rail against that as well.

    Ballack? Think he has a Cro-Magnon brow ridge, but still would. And don’t let lose that girl hear what you said about Owen Hargreaves!

    OMG Rodrigo Santoro!

  23. Sara says:

    i love Frank so much!!! he should be up there long ago,thanks kickette!

  24. Sarah says:

    I know, I still mourn Bobby’s passing…:( (haha, it sounds like he died!  I’m so overdramatic sometimes)  But really, I think I stopped watching MLS regularly when we lost Esky.  Even though he’s not that good looking, and even though he’s from UVA (guh-ross), I still loved him.

    Okay, I think I’ve finally got my Finest sorted:
    1. Cesc.  Obviously.  My one and only, forever and ever, etc etc.
    2. Iker – smokin hot goalkeeper.  Nuff said.
    3. Stevie G – I dunno why, but I’ve always found him adorable.  He’s got that boyish charm.
    4. Roque, mainly because of the height thing.  God, I love tall boys.  I mean, he’s not bad looking either, of course.  But 6’3”, Mmmmm…
    5. Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite, AKA Kaka.  Honestly, I just like saying his name.  Coolest name ever.  But he’s a cutie too, although much too innocent for my personal taste.  Hence the bottom of the list.

    There are so many hot ballers out there though!  As I’ve said countless times, I love all of the American boys, McBride (especially with the bloody face wounds, he looks so fierce), Bocanegra, Boswell…and then there are the rest of the Spanish boys in Nando, David Villa, Alonso…gah picking only five people is like cruel and unusual punishment!

  25. A. says:

    Rusty – Well, I know what you mean about Twellman being the be all and end all when people talk about the Revs. That could get annoying if you’re on the fence to begin with. I think I’ve loved him for so long I sort of just look past that – if I lived in Boston I might feel differently. Meh. Ballack – figures. I think Owen could do with a haircut.

    Sarah – DC’s got their fair share of hotties. I think losing Boswell was a huge blow though even if you’ve got Devon McHotness.

  26. Victoria says:

    I’m not feeling Lampard
    Definitely love both the Italians on the Hall of Fame. Not so much Becks and L. (Though I know saying Beckham is not hot is pretty much considered sacrilege.)

    For me (not in any real order):
    1. Paolo Maldini
    2. Thierry Henry
    3. Alexandre Pato
    4. I almost wish Gabriel Aubry and Rodrigo Santoro were footballers/soccer players just to be able to add them to this list.

    And I’m re-thinking Cesc’s status as “hot.“

  27. Pau says:

    Lovelamps! I KNOW!!!
    jajaja lets make it happen!! jajaja
    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> Memo and Frank MUST be in that list!!
    jaja

  28. Pau says:

    I TOTALLY FORGOT FABIO AURELIO (those golden days in Valencia with my beloved Aimar) and Micheal Owen!!
    Kun Aguero…
    I love too many
    by the way I hate C-Ron
    Luca Toni!!.. Alessandro Nesta
    can we have a finest houndred??
    better go before I remember someone else

    LUV YA GIRLS!!

  29. LoveLamps says:

    Pau – I was wondering where you’ve been sister!  Memo Ochoa will be the next Finest Five Campaign!  Let’s do it!

  30. Erin says:

    I think part of it is that I cannot be unbiased when it comes to my boys.  But I really, honestly do not see the attractiveness in either Ronaldo or Fabregas.  Ronaldo has a hot body, but body is not enough.  His face is just…lumpy and greasy and the hair…no.  Cesc is a sweetheart, but there is something slightly “off” in his facial features for me.  Lampard is one I’m “meh” on.  I can see how he’s attractive to an extent, but there’s something pointy about his face that turns me off.  Cute pics of him above though.

    I have a hard time seeing outside of Anfield for my own personal five.  I just can’t get worked up about anyone in a team I don’t love.  And I must admit that I’m not overly familiar with players outside of the EPL. I could probably be more unbiased in those assessments, but I just don’t watch enough of the other european leagues.

    For me:

    1.  Fernando Torres
    2.  Stevie Gerrard
    3.  Xabi Alonso
    4.  Daniel Agger
    5.  Pepe Reina

    All Red, all the time.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  31. LoveLamps says:

    Thanks again Kickette!  To keep things fair, here’s a finest five or ten list if Frank were not the only man in my life (HE IS!):

    1 – Frank Lampard – There is no substitute

    2 – Adrian Mutu – will follow him to the ends of the earth or Fiorentina . . . .

    3 – Carlo Cudicini – hottest goalkeeper on the planet

    4 – Vidic – I know, a Red Devil, but TFO has been raving for so long that I had to check him out. I won’t hold the kit against him and will make him take it off as often as possible!

    5 – Memo Ochoa – if you have not seen this guy, google him immediately!

    6 – John Terry – Frank loves him.  Therefore, I love him.

    7 – Cesc Fabregas – he’s dropped down on the list after a disappointment fantasy season for me.  Granted, he’s still fantasy worthy, just not fantasy football worthy.

    8 – Michael Essien – Something about his eyes gets me every time.  Of course, the Chelsea kit, the phenomenal play, the passion all help.

    9 – Thierry Henry – nothing more graceful on the pitch and rumors are now afloat he’ll be in blue come next season (YEAH!)

    10 – Joe Cole – who doesn’t love a little Joey Cole?

    And the Hottest Hall of Fame:
    1 – David Beckham – minus the beard!
    2 – Keano – hottest manager in the EPL without Jose Mourinho
    3 – And of course, Jose Mourinho!

    I think that’s all I can do tonight.  Must celebrate the Finest Five with Frank.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  32. Pau says:

    you are kidding right???
    FRANK MUST STAY ON THE LIST!!
    Xavi Alonso.. ok
    Nando… give me a break!! HE IS SOOO HOOOT!!
    not that convince about Iker, I mean he is ok but not THAT OK!
    I like Steve G also
    I am starting to feel the Messi love, no one else?? sure…on my own privet list also you can find:
    PABLO AIMAR! (ZARAGOZA), and Memo Ochoa (VIVA MEXICO!)
    Milan Baros, and my own taste of Rubens Sambueza
    oooooo Claudio Pizarro!! O GOSH!! there are so many!!!  David Villa?? ou Fabregas!! ooo Ignacio Scocco!! aaaaaaa Javier Saviola!!
    no no
    mi final list:
    -Frank Lampard tongue wink
    -Pablo Aimar
    -Xavi Alonso
    -Ignacio Scocco
    -Claudio Pizarro
    -Nando
    - sorry.. there are too many

    JAJAJAJA ps: security word: THERE!!

  33. Fittest…finest…I think it’s time to go to bed!!

    Sweet dreams, everyone. With all this talk of thighs, and hot ballers, I’m sure that I’m not alone in thinking that the dreams are going to be hot and heavy this evening.

    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_rolleye.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue rolleye" style="border:0;" />

  34. Glad to see LoveLamps so happy.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

    Will my man, Owen Hargreaves ever make the fittest 5?

    Actually, it’s okay if he doesn’t. I like having him all to myself!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/cheese.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="cheese" style="border:0;" />

  35. LoveLamps says:

    IN TEARS OF JOY!!!!!  FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ok, back to consciousness.  I cannot believe all of my lobbying finally paid off!  I love Frank with my entire heart and soul.  LOVE HIM LOVE HIM LOVE HIM!

    Obviously, my finest five:
    1 – FRANK LAMPARD
    2 – FRANK LAMPARD
    3 – FRANK LAMPARD
    4 – FRANK LAMPARD
    5 – FRANK LAMPARD

    I’m so happy!  Thank you Kickette for finally recognizing the most beautiful man in the footie world!  SMOOCHES!

  36. Portia says:

    My five:

    1)Fernando Torres-I’m thinking that after that terrible loss against Chelsea, the man will come to his senses and cut his hair.  And after that Kickette, there’s really no reason why he shouldn’t be on the list.

    2) Iker- still hot. always will be.

    3)Stevie G- i dunno, i just think he’s adorkable.

    4) Xabi Alonso- also eternally hot.

    As for the fifth, i have a few options:

    5a)Roque-not only does he have the coolest name in the EPL, he’s straight up sexy to go along with it.

    5b)Florent Malouda- that smile, that skin, those cheekbones, that smile…yummy. i’m a Liverpool fan but i cannot lie when he was on the pitch my attention was divided.

    that’s it.  oh and please REMOVE frankie. puh-leeze.

  37. Sarah says:

    I used to love the Revs and Twellman.  He was one of the first ballers I had a crush on, and I’ve got family in NE so I have a bit of a connection to their sports teams.  I don’t really watch MLS anymore though, and if I do I gotta support my hometown DC boys.

    I can see what you mean about overexposure though—a team isn’t just made up of one person, and it gets extremely annoying when the press constantly harps on the “star”.

  38. Rusty says:

    A, move to Boston and while you won’t see that much football coverage other than the Patriots, all the coverage of the football that actually involves feet will include Twellman. You’ll be in heaven. And I think that to be a “hard-core Revs fan” one has to rebel against the Twellman. That’s the sense I’ve gotten from tailgating.

    Now that I’ve checked my e-mail, here’s four of my finest five, in no particular order:
    Michael Ballack, Alan Smith, Owen Hargreaves, Paolo Maldini (still playing so not in the HHOF.)

  39. RedGirl (Mrs. Casill says:

    I couldn’t choose just five! That’s imposible!

    But I really like the list (I wonder why <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" /> ) and the addition to the Hot HOF

  40. A. says:

    Rusty, how can you say you’re sick of hearing about Twellman? The very notion of ‘too much’ Taylor is preposterous!

  41. linz says:

    THANK YOU Elise!!! I couldn’t agree more!  Frank should NOT just be a temporary…his hottness exceeds most footballers and should be praised for his sexiness!

    He’s def. my number 1, JT is second and i haven’t figured out the rest of the list, but will say that I guess, I will have to take what I can get in having him join the list, for how long he’ll be there, only Kickette knows—-but you can bet your ass I’ll be praying that it is a long time!

  42. JR says:

    Hi Ladies- I found this site a few months ago and really enjoy all the comments – always good for some chuckles at the end of a long day.  I lived in London for 2 years for work and have kept up with the game since I came back to the States.

    Love the idea of the Italian Hotties List- have a huge crush on Luca Toni!!!

  43. Rusty says:

    as I am wiped out from another thread today, I’m not going to post my Finest Five.

    Argh, where’s yours?

    But I’ve already said this about Cristiano and I’m also going to say it about Taylor Twellman: if I didn’t hear about him all the time (I’m a Revolution fan and he’s basically the only player who gets attention on regularly), I might like him. Right now he’s just overhyped and not that cute. I prefer Wells Thompson.

  44. Ally says:

    Also, but “stupid face” I meant that he doesn’t look very intelligent.

  45. Ally says:

    Sorry, it’s just my opinion. The stuff that gets posted here about Cristiano and my beloved United boys that I don’t rise to… *sighs*

    Besides, as a United fan, I can find nothing but hate for Xabi Alonso and the football club he plays for. It’s true and I’m not ashamed or afraid to admit it.

  46. argh says:

    Seriously? Fat Frank? Cristiano? What is wrong with you people?

    Oh I do believe a video should be made of all of this?!! Something to ponder and possibly do over the weekend <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  48. c9 says:

    Oh, oh, I 2nd the Italian Hottie List. I most agree that they should have their own….now where to start??????

  49. Princessa, the Italians deserve a list all of their own.  Oddo, Nesta, Gilardino, Toni – it’s all good.

  50. HoneyBee says:

    1.IKER CASILLAS(I adore him-grrrr)
    2.DIDIER DROGBA(I like his body,his face,his-in your face-Rafa Benitez-type of celebrations and his goals)
    3.NIKO KRANJCAR(cuter than chocolate bonbons)
    4.CLAUDIO PIZZARO(Where has this man dissappeared after moving to Chelsea from Bayern)?Great body,pretty face,what a shame.
    5.FRANK LAMPARD(I’m a Chelsea fan and I like his thighs,and he shouldn’t have lost against Stevie in TTO and his mother died and his future wive is ugly….)
    C-Ron is off my list at the moment because I’m Chelsea fan and if he wants me to put him back in my list he has to get rid of that plastic whore and behave nicely.

  51. Princessa says:

    1. Cristiano Ronaldo – Hottest man on the planet!

    2. Adrian Mutu

    3. Marco Boriello

    4. Philippe Mexes

    5. Daniel De Ridder

    It was hard to just come up with 5 because there are so many hot players. Other hotties are Massimo Oddo, Miguel Moya, Miguel Torres, Victor Valdes, Alessandro Nesta. I could just go on and on.Lol I think the Serie A has the hottest players.

  52. carly says:

    Oh yes, I’m sure he’s very good with sign language and using his hands in general …around the house, of course, of course.

    Oh my security word is leaders45 – it’s reminding me of the time to watch United tomorrow <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  53. And Carly, since I speak no Italian and he speaks no English, his intelligence quotient would hardly factor in our relationship.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />  As long as he could make me an espresso in the morning while dressed in nothing but his underpants, I’d be a happy woman.

  54. noora says:

    1 (and only). Owen Hargreaves

  55. carly says:

    That’s my girl wink

    He IS a real man and interesting!

  56. Carly, you’re right.  Totti is a few sprinkles short of a sundae, but he’s too mature for my Sex Toys list, and he’s not a Red Devil, so he ended up on my Real Men List.  Which I think he is.  I’ll add an asterisk to his name.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

  57. carly says:

    TFO – Totti intelligent?
    You can call him whatever you want, he does look great in a hospital bed, but he is renowned for being dumb. He has best-selling books of jokes where he is ridiculed. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_laugh.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue laugh" style="border:0;" />

    But I totally agree on the categories.

    I’m not too keen on the F5. The only one that I actually find attractive is Frank. The others are all very nice but they lack something special.

    Roque is perfect.
    No mentions of Carlo?
    Anyway, at the moment, my finest is Wes.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue wink" style="border:0;" />

  58. Dolce says:

    Oh, I absolutely (and gleefully) agree on the list and with Nando bubbling under… I have a feeling (just like A.) that once he figures out what the hell to do with that mop of his, he’ll finally break into the coveted list of Five!

    Geez, it feels like Xmas morning around here on this one!!

  59. tammyv says:

    I still contend my idea of the positional Starting XI of Hottie is the way to go and 5 on the bench waiting for their call-up

  60. Tere says:

    1.- Iker
    2.- Iker
    3.- Iker
    4.- Iker
    5.- Iker

    Fine, that’s too much. I’ll change it:

    1.- Iker
    2.- Iker
    3.- Iker
    4.- Iker
    5.- Xabi

  61. HoneyBee says:

    I adore Paolo Maldini(not as much as my mother who has adored him for years,well decades in fact) and it’s good to finally see him in the all time hotty list.Damn,I think he will retire at the end of the season

  62. Deanna says:

    Mrs.XabiAlonso, I’m with you. Your man is perfectly gorgeous.

    Understand the Cris love, but no slagging off Xabi. Besides, Cris doesn’t have half as much the humility or compassion this man does. For that alone, he deserves to be higher.

  63. A. says:

    And yes, I did mention Carlos twice and on purpose.

    Goalkeeperette you are my hero – Jens for the HOF!!!

    While I’m here, can I also enter Maurice Edu’s name into the mix? He’s super hot. And Twellman. Oh, how can I forget Twellman?

  64. Deanna says:

    OOh, I approve Ms. Kickette!! Very nice, all 5 of them. Would put Roque or Nando in before Lampard, but I understand the sympathy vote.

    Xabi higher than Cris? The United fan in me wants to protest, but Cris deserves to be demoted for his hairstyles(or lack thereof)these past few months. Baby, it’s all very fine you scoring so many goals, but, please, can we go easy on the hairgel for once? Remember the good old days when we could actually see those gorgeous curls? I can’t believe his girl doesn’t steal his supply of hairgel away from him!

    At least the classy Mr. Alonso doesn’t have that problem. Although I don’t like it when he cuts it too short. Let it grow, love.

    Why is Cesc second? Am I the only one who finds him adorably-cute in a baby sort of way, rather than freakingly-hot? Same as Nando, really.

  65. A. says:

    Adding Lampard to the list is a fine choice. Even though he is, at his very core, evil and extraordinarily wanky.

    (But…I’m afraid I’ve bought into the whole ‘boo-hoo Lamps’ thing. Shame on me. And I’m annoyed that the paps followed him to his funeral even thought it’s to be expected)

    Carlos Bocanegra – He’s facing relegation for heaven’s sake! Where are your hearts people? He’s vulnerable…

    Malouda – A douche. A very sexy, HOT, douche.

    Torres – Maybe in a few years. If he got a decent haircut. And stopped defiling Stevie.

    Other Hotties:

    Armand Traore – Coming to us from the boy-toy branch.

    Carlos Bocanegra – As described.

    Mathieu Debuchy – If you’ve not seen him you’re seriously, SERIOUSLY missing out.

    Didier Drogba – Have you seen him with his shirt off. Those hot thighs. Enough said.

    Philippe Senderos – I cannot explain it. Will not explain it. He’s just hot, okay?

  66. Moongirl (Mrs Senderos) says:

    Right ive deliberated over this long enough now so here goes:

    1. Philippe ( No reason needed in my opinion – had to have my hubby top!)

    2. Martin Skrtel (Tall, bald, tattoos, gorg lips, long fingers what more could a girl ask for??)

    3. Petr Cech (also tall, gorg lips long fingers, would look good bald!!! & rocks in a suit!)

    4. Christian Pander (basically reads as for 2 & 3)

    5. Mathieu Flamini (bit of an odd one this as hes prob got more hair than the rest put together but hes a cutie)

    Goalkeeperette: you and i are definitely kindred spirits as i had Dan Agger and Nicklas on my bubblin under list (along with Alex Hleb)- its the tall tattoed thing!

    can’t really comment on TFF as i feel Kickette and i have slightly diff tastes!!! LOL

  67. Sarah says:

    AAH Brian Ching!! The Flyin’ Hawaiian!

    I heart my American ballers.

  68. Johnna says:

    1. Iker- Never understood the attraction. (Though I will admit I find him infinitely hot when Becks’s legs are wrapped around him. Either in public or, um, not. *cough*
    2. Cesc- WTF? He’s sort of hot, but number 2? No.
    3. Xabi- Yes, very much so yes and please more.
    4. Cris- Yes, should be moved up for pure hottness factor if everyone ignores his girlfriend they don’t like.
    5. Frank- A thousand times yes. He’s got a smoking body (Fat Frank is no more) and I love his bone structure and his eyes. Plus, you know, his arse and thighs.

    My finest five:
    1. Cris
    2. Ruud van Nistelrooy (I know, I know.)
    3. Lamps
    4. JT (or a combination of Lamps and JT heh)
    5. Toni Terry (I couldn’t think of a 5th off hand so I picked her.)

    Plus my American/Houston Dynamo player Brian Ching: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v78/johnna02/Ch…

  69. Elise says:

    Kickette, Frank should have been rocking that Finest Five list a long time ago. What’s this ‘temporary’ crap of which you speak?  lol He doesn’t need a sympathy vote to be HOT, HOT, HOT!  I’m going away now to consider my very own Finest Five list.  I’ve tried this before and it always ends up being the Finest Two list:
    1. John 2. Frank.  …and no one else even comes close.  But now I feel I may be able to apply some objectivity, look at hotness without associating it with the kind of love I feel for these two, so I’ll give it another shot.  I plan to give it the full and serious consideration such an important task deserves.

  70. goalkeeperette says:

    My opinion on the current Finest Five:

    Iker – I don’t feel anything when I look at him. Just blah.
    Cesc – OMG OMG OMG. He’s the hottest man to walk the earth. I love him.
    Xabi – Mmmmhhhh. Classy and delicious. I approve!
    Cristiano – Ew. Mr Slickster. Brilliant footballer, I have to admit, but everything else about him is gross.
    Frank – Better than Kasper, but still.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/confused.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="confused" style="border:0;" /> Something is off with his face.

    On the current Hall Of Fame:

    Becks – like Iker, he is just blah for me. Footballwise, lookwise and characterwise.
    Fabio – I have this weird obsession with his huge butt. I’d like to park my car on it. Or have a picnic on it. Or… wait, I’m talking to much. Yes, I totally agree with Canna.
    Freddie – Yes please. Sexy. And Ex-Gunner. Yum.
    Maldini – a bit undecided about him, but I don’t mind him in the HOF.

    A little need for improvement here, don’t you think?

    My personal Finest Five:

    Cesc – reasons mentioned above. Sex on legs.
    Daniel Agger – Danish, freckled, tattooed, hottest body ever. I know he has his admirers out there, so where are you girls?
    Philippe Senderos – my little guilty pleasure. But since the Sizzle Query was posted, I know I’m not the only one. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    Nicklas Bendtner – I’ve been crushing madly on him recently. MADLY. Tall, blonde, cute, built, and again, Danish and tattooed. Ohhhh Nicky!
    Fernando Torres – it’s a bit of a scandal he isn’t in the FF already…he is perfection, well minus the hair.

    My suggestion for a new addition to the HOF:

    Jens Lehmann!!!

    keyword stop19…okay okay I’ll stop now.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue wink" style="border:0;" />

  71. c9 says:

    Ally- Being Cris’ wife and all, I appreciate the love you’ve shown for him, especially wanting him to be higher on the F5. But I cannot let you demean the others on the list, that is a defo no-no!

    MrsXabi- Don’t cry, a proper glove virtual slap should be sufficient. smirk

  72. Signora Maldini says:

    Paolino mio <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/kiss.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="kiss" style="border:0;" />

    I’m so proud. I think is going to be a sexy after party at Casa Maldini this weekend to celebrate one of the crowning achievements of his already illustrious careeer.

    As for the rest of the Finest Five. Iker, Cesc and Xabi are not my type though I will vouch for the cute factor of the latter two. Iker…I just don’t get. Sorry.

    And Frank?  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/sick.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="sick" style="border:0;" />

    I also think that Fer Torres *definitely* needs to be on this list. For his voice alone.

    My personal five? I’m going to add some more Italian into the mix…

    1) Paolo – no brainer
    2) C – Ron – Paolo’s opposite in everyway and variety is the spice of life, dontcha know.
    3) Fer Torres – His voice is the sex. The End.
    4)Alessandro Nesta – I’m still trying to talk him into one night with me and Paolo…..
    5) Marco Borriello – pretty pretty boy.

  73. Ooh…I’m not all that keen on the finest five…

    Iker – um, no thanks
    Cesc – he always looks cross-eyed to me
    Xabi – he is very nice but not really my cuppa. In honour of the lovely Mrs. Xabi, I won’t challenge this choice.
    Cristiano – love him and totally get why c9 and others are totally ga-ga
    Frank – NO FREAKIN’ WAY! He has no lips! He doesn’t know what sensual is!!

    I like the gesture…to put him there temporarily but please don’t make him a permanent fixture.

    My finest five…
    1. Owen Hargreaves
    2. Owen Hargreaves
    3. Owen Hargreaves
    4. Owen Hargreaves
    5. Owen Hargreaves

    No surprise there then…

    Soft spot for…
    Joe Cole
    Gary Neville
    Vida
    John O’Shea

    One track United mind, really (except for Joe Joe)

  74. freddiegirl says:

    Maldini deserves the HOF..he belongs there with my beloved Freddie and Fabio….he’s in great company…;)
    My list..
    1 )Freddie Ljungberg….he’s there forever, no explanation needed…..:D
    2) Fabio Canavarro….any guy that can captain their team to WC glory and then come back and make you a mean pizza is ok with me.
    3) Iker Casillas….c’mon, the guy is the epitome of tall, dark and handsome.
    4) Micheal Essien….my wild card…that lovely body….that beautiful smile…gotta have some chocolate on the list…:)
    5) Cristiano Ronaldo…not my type, not my fav but his popularity with fellow Kickettes here and his talent can’t be denied.

    The ‘Bubbling Under’ list…
    1) Cesc Fabgegas…c’mon he’s cute..and he’s a Gunner, therefore his inclusion in my list.
    2) Fernando Torres…cute as a puppy with a sweet personality to match…..that goes a long way..<img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />
    3) Alan Smith…dirty, dirty, dirty boy.  Every list needs at least one and Alan Smith is my choice…;)
    4) Valeri Bojinov….hot, hot, hot.  Too bad he got injured early on so we couldn’t enjoy him in the Prem…hope he hurries back for next season.
    5) Joaquin Rodriguez Sanchez…anyone who is a fan of the Spanish National team know what I’m talking about…beautiful eyes, beautiful smile….

    There they are…my mentions…for whatever it’s worth…:L:L:L

  75. Sarah says:

    Fight! Fight! Fight!

    Haha, just kidding.  Play nice girls.  Although, Xabi most definitely does not have a stupid face.

  76. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    “While I don’t approve of Xabi with his smushed nose and stupid face being higher than Cristiano, I can live with the rest of it atm.“

    Are you kidding me?? Smushed nose?? Stupid face?? I’m not sure whether to cry or virtually bitch slap you!!!

  77. Ally says:

    Ugh I love that first photo so much. I miss those two, they were so adorable together. :(

    While I don’t approve of Xabi with his smushed nose and stupid face being higher than Cristiano, I can live with the rest of it atm. Similarly to Kickette, it was the second time this year that my heartstrings tugged for Lampard when he scored that goal and started to cry. I genuinely felt bad for him, poor thing. I can absolutely deal with his inclusion.

    As for Paolo, the man is absolutely gorgeous and should have been in the HoF ages ago. He’s pretty perfect for 40.

  78. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Oh Fourth you really make me laugh <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />
    Nice list’s there.

    And let me just say once more GIVE YOUR BROTHER TO MEEEEEEE!!!!

  79. Paris says:

    Kickette FERNANDO TORRES needs to be on the list he is amazing also I would’nt mind Kaka on the list either!!

    My List
    1. FERNANDO TORRES
    2. Kaka
    3. Robin Van Persie
    4. Xabi Alonso
    5. Cesc Fabregas

    If I had my way the list would be top 10 so many footballers I can’t take it

  80. Aite says:

    The top three are just perfect. I think my only change would be to make Cesc and Xabi swap places :D

    Iker is just…mmmmmm. Yes, delicious :D

  81. Paolo Maldini to the Hall of Fame:  that’s a no brainer.  Excellent choice, Kickette.

    Re:  the Frank sympathy factor.  I’m so over it.

    http://freshlegs.blogspot.com/2008/05/too-blue.ht… 

    Iker. Meh. 
    Cesc.  God no. 
    Xabi.  It’s like doing my brother.  NO.
    Cristiano, yes, if he would fix the hair and dump the whore, and stay at United for the next ten years.  None of those look likely to happen.

    So, I guess I’m seriously out of touch with the finest five at the moment.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/longface.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="long face" style="border:0;" />

    My finest are divided into categories:

    The Real Men (sexy, intelligent and interesting):
    Roy Keane. 
    Francesco Totti.
    Mark Hughes.
    Peter Schmeichel

    The Sex Toys (hella fun, but sooner or later the batteries will run dry):
    Roque Santa Cruz.
    Robbie Keane.
    James Tompkins.
    David Bentley.
    Luke Steele.
    Alexandre Pato.  (I’m a perv, what can I say?)

    The Red Devils (if transferred, retired, or sold, may slip from my list into obscurity.)
    Nemanja Vidic
    Owen Hargreaves
    Edwin van der Sar
    Rio Ferdinand

  82. LucyLu says:

    Cesc’s lil bird – you and I are *so* on the same page (minus van Persie, but he’s not bad). Let’s hear it for our impeccable taste! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/shade_smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="cool smile" style="border:0;" />

  83. Sarah says:

    Kickette, it is soooo time for Boca to get on the list!!!

    And I won’t say anything bad about Lamps, considering all he’s been through.

    I’m not sure about my specific top five, it’s such a hard decision…I’ll think about it and post later.

  84. Pink Panther says:

    My list:
    1. Iker
    2. Sergio Ramos
    3. Cristiano Ronaldo
    4. Fernando Torres
    5. Dani

  85. Cesc's lil bird says:

    I will castrate anybody who kicks Cesc out their list! Consider ye warned… And (LoveLamps, please don’t kill me) I think Frank shouldn’t be in the top 5. I think he should be replaced by Nando. And Ronaldo should be lowered down a few notches. And Casillas should also be lowered. Here’s my list (excuse the bias):
    1. Cesc Fabregas
    2. Fernando Torres
    3. Xabi Alonso
    4. Robin van Persie
    5. The Spanish National Team

    Hot HOF:
    Those mentioned in previous comments and the Arsenal team. Lol wink

  86. LucyLu says:

    Check out Becks’ spindly legs in the top pic. I’m sure it’s just a bad angle but LOL

    And c9 – you’re welcome wink

  87. tammyv says:

    Come on Dani (Mrs . SF) this is not charity:
    This is abalicious!

    http://www.kickette.com/images/uploads/lampardbeach.jpg

  88. c9 says:

    MrsXabi- No hard feelings here. Besides kickette wouldn’t be great if there were grudges. So drink up woman your man deserves it!! kiss

    LucyLu- Yes who can forget those….he was coming to check on me because I was taking so long, little did he know why?  wink  Thank you for posting, his bum really makes my day cheese

  89. dani,,Premier League Queen,,MrsSteveFinnan says:

    and omg frank wth it kind of has to be a sympathy thing !

  90. dani,,Premier League Queen,,MrsSteveFinnan says:

    big surprise nando is still not on the list im upset :(

    xabi still there so im happy grin

  91. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Oh. The Bum. Must. Lie. Down.

  92. LucyLu says:

    c9, those pics are all very well and good but this is my (and everyone else’s) favourite picture of your man.

    http://www.kickette.com/index.php?/site/comments/…

    There it is. Wow.

  93. SB (Mrs.MO) says:

    ok, here’s my list:

    1. Iker Casilas

    2. Xabi Alanso

    3. C.Ron (hate him but you can’t deny he’s damn good OUTSIDE)

    4. Michael Owen

    5. Frank Lampard

  94. Rusty says:

    footballerchick, you’re the only Chelsea fan gloating.

    And Nando still reminds me of a 12-year-old, in more ways than one.

  95. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Thanks c9, sorry it’s at the expence of yours though. And that thigh shot is a beauty!! Verrry nice wink

    Oooh I forgot to comment on Carlos, the man is HOT HOT HOT!! He should be in the finest five, Aurelio might have to share my number five spot.

  96. tammyv says:

    No SB you are not.. Cesc is jsut a place holder for Carlos and soon he will be gone

  97. SuzyQ says:

    I love the Cesc love! I totally get the hotness… something about his eyes… I dunno.. .he’s an aquired taste! (well, not literally).

    I like the list but I think Nando and Carlos have to be included. stat.

  98. c9 says:

    LoveLamps will be so happy to see Frank on there…. temporarily smile

    MrsXabi-Congratulations on your man moving up!

    As for my Cris I’m glad he’s still there. Due to the recent hair trouble and pitch trouble. Perhaps Whoreida/Whatsherface has played a role in his bump down hmmm  Oh well, I won’t complain right now, I’m scoping the web for some ultra hot pics of Mr. c9 at the mo’, here are a few to share:
    Some lovely tongue action:

  99. LucyLu says:

    I didn’t notice that Xabi had bumped C-Ron! Ha! Go Xabs.

    I forgot to add my list. (I’ll have to think of the ‘Bubbling Unders’ later.)

    1. Nando
    2. Cesc

    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue wink" style="border:0;" />

  100. SB (Mrs.MO) says:

    Hurray! Lamps!

    Am I the only one who thinks Cesc souldn’t be in finest 5?

    Luv luv luv the H.O.Fs!!!

  101. FootballerChick43 says:

    Hooray for Iker remaining on number one <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    Body of a god, I say.

    And Frank totally deserves to be added. After his stellar performance for Chelsea.
    Sorry.. must keep rubbing that victory over Liverpool in.

  102. TAMMYV says:

    YAY!!!  FRANKIE!! Well done, kiddo!  We are all so very proud of you looking like a rockstar on Weds Night and after reading your card to your momma on her flowers, a very good man.  We love you.

    Very good with the Paolo add as well

    Now oh Kickette.. WHERE IS BOCA?????????? hmm…??

    My Fit Five (in no order)
    1.) Boca (Carlos Bocanagro – He is the one on top)
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/samjadams/…

    2.) Lamps – I love that kid

    3.) Obafemi Martins (Newcastle Striker – he is a goal scoring machine and have a great smile)

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v460/samjadams/…

    4.) Petr Cech – I love everything about him..

    5.A) Roque – pretty to a new level

    5.B) Deco – he is a little italian Michael Owen and so damn cute

    HOF:
    1.) Paolo
    2.) Freddie
    3.) Cannavaro

    Wow, ok. *Be subjective, be subjective, be subjective…*

    I did have a mini-crush on Lamps a few years ago, so I *suppose* I can see it. But no. I think he looks better from a distance than close up and that’s never a good starting point. At least he’s only there until Nando sorts his hair out.

    But even then Kickette, I think true fineness surpasses hair. The fact that Nando can STILL look good with bleach blond locks says everything! When has that ever worked for anyone else? Even Becks looked dodgy with the headband.

    Anyway, Maldini totally deserves the honour of the HOF. Good call.

    “and in fact, were staring at the television in horror at what we thought was sure to be an excruciatingly awful miss”
    GOD….I thought the same LULZ

    Woooo!!! Xabi has been bumped up!! AND is higher than Ronaldo. Ooooh this has made me too happy <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    OK my list is.
    1. Xabi Alonso
    2. Roque Santa Cruz – you are correct, this man does deserve his own list. Can’t believe he didn’t make the top five.
    3. Iker Cassilas
    4. Johann Gourcuff or Micheal Owen – I couldn’t decide.
    5. Fabio Aurelio

    Frank? I can deal with him being there for now, think it is a bit of a sympathy vote however, but whatevs.
    Maldini – A well deserved place.
    And Cesc is cute and all, but second? Really?

    The Becks and Iker picture is too cute, makes me feel all warm inside. The wait was worth while <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    Frank = ordinary-looking
    Cristiano = the more I hear about him, the more I hate him. So maybe I should go to an island somewhere.
    Paolo = a worthy addition

    and now that I know that there’s a second Cannavaro, Fabio becomes that much more attractive. I want to be in a Cannavaro panini. The sandwich press would just make us closer.

  111. MiSh..HaRgReAvEs--x says:

    hargreaves has to be in the top five never mind fat frank lampard

  112. sassy says:

    While Cristiano physically makes me want to vomit, Lampard reminds me to go on a diet and Cole…hahahahahahah.. Finest five: 1. Got to be Mr Steven Gerrard (shame on you kickette for not having this fine man on your list, anywhere)who could resist his boyish charm, his gorgeous grin, his love for his club and not forgetting his fine, fine, ass…moon face Curren is a lucky, lucky lady. 2.Slowly creeping up my list, Michael manly Ballack, ummm 3. Michael Owen, there is and always will be a special place in my heart for the Owen and his legs. 4. Fernando Torres, only sometimes Nando looks the part, and when he won the Euros for Spain, this was the peak of his sometimes…OLAY! 5. Vavavooom Henry……

  113. Satareh says:

    Where on goodnesses earth is Mr Joe Cole?? That man is bloody gorgeoussss……

  114. LynxKitten says:

    German: 1. Kehl 2. Ballack. 3. Schneider 4. Schweinsteiger. Netherlands: 4. Ljungberg. Spanish: 5. Alonso. 6. Casillas. 7. Fabregas. Italian: Gattuso. Cannavaro. Del Piero. God bless those amazing bodies.

  115. Venice says:

    No Torres, but I suspect he'll make in the next round, with the amount of worship he's been getting in the community section. And the Ramos seems dangerously close. Not that I would personally agree with it. Anyway, I think the Finest Five list should be made of men in their prime. I endorse Iker and Xabi all the way. But Cesc, even though he's cute, is still a little too young, we'll see the best of him in 2-3 years. I don't understand the lack of interest for Raúl, other than it would make the FF list too Spanish. He's hot, smart, successful and classy. He should at least be in the HOF. Cristiano Ronaldo doesn't do much for me, but I understand he's a staple item on lists like these. And I don't really feel the Lampard love. I would put Thierry Henry instead, I think he's a sexy, stylish and all around charming man.

  116. MrsTorres says:

    yep take cristiano ronaldo off and frank lampard put Fernando torres on there and david villa to replace lampard cmon surely torres has gotta be on there

  117. Indisa says:
