Good Week/Bad Week: Deja Vu All Over Again

YouTube Preview Image

It might seem a little unfair that another person’s misfortune is the cause of so much merriment in the Kickette office, but we never claimed to be saints. Just watch the video above, watch it again, and admit to yourself that you too are genuinely evil.

You’ll feel better, we promise.


And The Goalkeeper’s Dropped It: While Sergio Ramos dropping the Copa Del Rey will remain our permanent happy place, we must offer congratulations to Maarten Stekelenburg of Ajax, who managed to repeat our hero’s feat after his side won the Eredivisie trophy. We’re sure that Maarten, who just happens to be a goalkeeper, will take the shouts of ‘safe hands’ that will inevitably follow him for the rest of his life in the best of spirits. Ahem.

Zip It: Looks like Nicky Bendtner is coping with his newly single status in the time honoured manner. Bendy was spotted leaving the Arsenal ‘End Of Season’ bash in the company of a lady friend and a smug grin, the latter considerably larger than the former. Nicky’s fans will also be disappointed to learn that his trousers appeared not only to be in the right place, but zipped up too.

Wetsuit Weight Loss: Exciting news for all of you unable to control your intake of chocolate and jelly sweets. Abbey Clancy has advised that her sickeningly fabulous post-baby figure is down to her wearing a ‘special’ wetsuit while exercising. Our efforts haven’t yet paid off, (the two interns we dressed in rubber and set to running round the block are just sweaty and abusive) but we’ll keep a close eye on developments for you. Beauty hints are just another service we provide.

Hats Off: Andrea Pirlo, ten year veteran of AC Milan, has announced his plans to leave the club next month. Pirlo, whose career highlights have included two Serie A titles, was once awarded an ‘F’ by Kickette for looking dishevelled in World Cup team photo. We’d like to think that this probably influenced his decision to leave such a high profile club, but having taken the above hat into consideration, we would guess he doesn’t care what we think.

Banner Bungle: We realise that having directed Manchester United’s course to their nineteenth English League title, Sir Alex Ferguson has a right to be smug, but maybe not this smug. The United manager has stated in an interview that he wished he’d been behind the dastardly scheme to display a celebratory banner at Anfield advising Liverpool fans of their rivals’ new status; a plan that came to fruition prior to Liverpool’s game with Spurs last Sunday. It’s like he enjoys being banned by the FA, isn’t it?

Deal Or No Deal?: Scotland striker Gary O’Conner was arrested this week when police found him to be  in possession of ‘a white powder’. O’Connor, recently released by Barnsley, has been training with Celtic recently in the hope of getting a deal. Whether his after hour adventures will have  an impact on his scheme, we can’t imagine.

    Stekelenburg has a broken thumb… Ramos apparently just has slippery hands. Which may be a good thing though.

  2. Johanna says:

    I will always love Pirlo even if he's not going to wear the rossoneri colors anymore. It hurts to see him go but I hope he joins a good team. I'll wear my jersey with pride. Forza Pirlo!

  3. Chefdi says:

    The hat on Pirlo ~ yeah, NO. But, his foto in that new Milan D&G book is one of my favorites and, I give him points for that face. Always. I adore him.

    Dropping your trophy is the new black. All the cool kids are doing it! But none of them will ever be as cool as Sergio.

  8. LarissaxNavas says:

    Maarten Stekelenburg and Jan Vertonghen hit the underground wires, so if there was electricity on it, there was no Ajax anymore! when I thought of that later, I was in a little shock but glad they are still alive haha =3 but okayy hahaha still it was kinda funny that they did kinda the same as Ramos did hahaha! xd

  9. footieflu says:

  11. Emily says:

    so sad for pirlo's departure!! what am I supposed to do with my Pirlo milan jersey? and, I can't exactly rename my cat… oh well, in any case, i wish him luck, and hopefully he stays healthy!

    • Forza Milan says:

      I have a #21 jersey as well… I think I'll still wear it, I'll still show my support for Milan!

  12. cisarovna says:

    Sergio you trendsetter!! Please don't share your fashion tips, lest they spread like wildfire, I couldn't handle any more fabulousness!!

    Although to be fair the Ajax drop was most likely caused by power lines overhead. Very glad no one was electrocuted!!!! Yikes!!

  13. Sarah, Madrid says:

    I dont know, I still think Ramos dropping the trophy although it was embarrassing for a moment, but I really can't imagine winning CDR without his cute drop, Ramos is sexy in whatever he does haha!

    Btw, I am stil waiting for Kickette to mention Iker fb posts, it is hilarious and this video is dedicated for whoever like the adorable of Iker and sexniess of Ramos:…

    It is on his FB and much more funny translated status and pictures, thank you for that Iker, for your adorable self.


    • Slave4Mou says:

      Thank you Sarah! Happy Birthday Iker indeed! Thirty looks fabulous on Iker….now, quick, to the sexy pics of the birthday boy!

    • bri_saldana says:

      I KNOW…Iker is practically launching his OWN reality show. I thought I loved him before but this gracious saint keeps giving, and giving, and giving himself to us. Pics w/everyone from Mou to his bffs, video shout outs, birthday speeches & pics, telling fans that he's nervous about what we think about the WC final, crazy 80's hipster/spanish music, apologizing for his english….OH, OH and The Ramos! I feel like it's my birthday…(sigh)

      • Sarah, Madrid says:

        ME2! Bri! He is so perfect, even 'Take heart!" part "grandpather", He is just making my day everyday on FB lol.

    • Chefdi says:
