Footballers & Fans: When Worlds Collide

Images: REUTERS, Marca.com.

While we know that footballers love their fans, we’re aware that they prefer to do the old ‘meet n’greet’ thang in carefully controlled circumstances. There are, after all, loony people wandering the streets, just waiting for an opportunity to athletically leap across the table and commit unspeakable acts involving massage oil and cake. But more on them later.

Above, we see an individual brandishing a small child in what appears to be an attempt to bring out the paternal in Daveeed Villa and hasten a path along the queue. But while said individual appears to have been successful and attained an audience, has the King of Soul Patch sussed their game? Is he refusing access to the child as a punishment for the devious tricks? Or is he merely offering the child a light massage due to the hours of waiting? Kickettes? Your thoughts?

Meanwhile, we were vaguely amused to see Ryan Giggs looking like he’s about to break into a side-eye situation whilst a friendly looking gent leans in for a photo opp.

Why would our favourite Salt & Pepper Welshman be heading into the peturbed zone, you ask? It may or may not have something to do with Ryan spotting the Kickette staffer entering the vicinity armed with cake and massage oil who may (sadly) have been intercepted by the fleet of security on sight. Damn it.

    After studying the first image for what is probably an unseemly amount of time given my distaste for that easter-egg shade of purple he’s sporting, it looks to me like Villa might be signing the mother’s arm.

    Curious, and begs the question: what do people do with their signed body parts after the fact? Maybe the jersey is a better bet, haha.

    this is totally unrelated to david villa but i know how everyone has this fever for hot footballers and cute kids, here's a video link of sergio ramos and his cute lil niece when he was honored in camas, i swear i would give this man a child in a heart beat lol


  3. Holly says:

    Definitely blessing the kid, or using his god-like powers to cure a fatal disease of some sort.

    Dangit, I so wish that someday a Kickette staffer will successfully be able to brandish a cake and massage oil in front of a footballer. It's a brilliant idea, I mean really, they simply couldn't turn that down! Keep trying Kickette! I believe in you!

  5. Shazza says:

    David Villa can sign my shirt anytime!!

  6. Lorihanna,Morales To says:

    if only david looked me in the eyes'

    then i would be so on top of the world :)

    seriously would you really expect him to speak to you?

    all you need is a look in the eye moment ;)

  7. GourcuffLover says:

    LOL, The baby looks like he is thinking ‘I really dont care for this crap I just want to nap’ Love it!

  8. Inés says:

    if David Villa gives me his sign and I can see him closely….I swear, I would faint!

    • Jasmine says:

      Same here I love David Villa so much that if I see him I will faint. :)

      • jade says:

        i know, me too!

        i am perfectly content to get arrested when i see him come out of the tunnel at the barcelona vs ac milan game in aug!


        • Villa MaraVilla says:

          I would love for David to sign my shirt! Or just to see him in person.

        • Barcelista says:

          LOL me too!! Just to see all my boys again – and now with Villa aka señor bitchface among them – well let me just say that I don't think I can control myself this time (Too bad Cesc couldn't join us too!!) It's been too long since the last game! No fence or person can keep me away from my boys!! ;)

  9. Gilly B says:

    @GourcuffLover agree on the baby's non-fussed status. He looks more worries about something in the distance while Mum is queue jumping to get close to Daveeed ;-)

    Looks like he is signing the bubba's shirt, so that is sweet…even if bubba doesn't give a crap right now!

    As for Sir Ryan, it's always odd to see pics where he actually looks his age. Fit, but aged. In the Reds shirt, working it on the pitch, he really doesn 't look over 30.

    weell villa i obv signing an autograph on the kids back
    cause you can see the pen.
    but i wouldnt mind getting a back rub by him…. (:

    • aekhan says:

      ahahahahaah melaniee thats soo funny the **rubbing back bit**..i wouldnt mind it either..:D

  11. Michelle says:

    I think it is cute that he is signing the child and although I love David Villa, I don’t love that in every single picture taken when he is not playing football that he is wearing a dsquared shirt. He needs to expand his shopping horizons. What is up with the dsquared fixation, Daveed?

  12. Liz says:

    i think Villa is blessing the child. lol!!

  13. Einah says:

    Haha :) ) I'll go with Daveeeeed signing the baby's shirt AND lightly massaging the baby, too :) He may be THE Bitchface but he's definitely very loving around kids :)

    Kickette, your Daveeed posts brings me both pain & joy. Pain that I get continuous affirmation of the bitchface attraction despite efforts to not love him sooo much BUT also JOY that I … get continuous affirmation of the botchface attraction haha :) )

    • Lil' Red says:

      uh, i feel your pain honey. I try so hard not to love this man, because i know that its never gonna happen between us….*sigh*
      but seriously, how could you not love that?!?!?!

      • Einah says:

        Agree! How can we not love the his royalty bitchface?! I've got my whole office cheering for him during the WC bec they saw me hooked :) Viya, can we clone you? LOL

  14. jade says:

    can you imagine saying, "david villa, please touch my child."

    like how does that come up in a conversation?


  15. Deedz says:

    There's a marker in his hand; he's signing it. So cute.

  16. Lil' Red says:

    It looks like he is signing the back of the kids jersey. You can see the pen under "Q" in the word "parqueAstur". its white though, so it is hard to see.

    However, he he was giving out free massages, i might just have to fly my international ass over there and have my back rubbed :) gawd, he is so sexayy!!

  17. becky says:

    If you look closely you can see a pen in david villa's hand signing the back of the babies shirt …. awwww :D

  18. mama-barca says:

    i think david villa is a good guy…hot too

  19. nida says:

    It looks like David is signing the baby's shirt lol. Using one hand to un-crinkle the shirt, the other to sign. He looks good anyway.

  20. Angie says:

    It looks like he's signing the kid's back. Can't tell if that's a pen or a weirdly-placed finger. But I like to think he's passing his soul patch growing mojo onto the cutie pie.

  21. Dee says:

    I love that picture with the kid. He looks like he's debating holding the baby.

  22. Louise says:

    We Americans have always been overly friendly. Don't touch the goods, dude.
