Good Week/Bad Week: From the Sublime To The Ridiculous

Jack Wilshere, back in training. You know what that means, don’t you, Kickettes? Image via facebook.

When it’s good, it’s really, really good.

When it’s bad, we just can’t be arsed with it, frankly.


Slight Return: A lot of water has passed under the bridge since Jack Wilshere completed a training session. But fear not, Kickettes. The Adorkables are back and judging from our lead photo, v2.0 is going to provide just as many oohs, ahhs & lols as the originals. Welcome back, boys, especially Jack. We missed you. All of you.

Missing The Point: We all saw how happy Zlatan was about scoring in the Champions League this week. Kate Winslet happy is what. However, we failed to notice how far his good cheer extended. Sorry bout that, Kickettes. We let you down there.

A Win’s A Win: England’s Women confirmed their place at EURO 2013 with a 3-0 victory over Croatia on Wednesday. Jill Scott, Eni Aluko and Casey Stoney scored in the game, which wasn’t as one sided as the result suggests. Still, they’re through. It’s not like we’re ever, ever, going to be in a position to criticise.



Then again, maybe Marek just smashed the discoball with his towering plumage. It’s plausible. Image:¬†Tullio M. Puglia/Getty Images Europe.

Disco Duncers: Four members of Slovakia’s NT will not receive appearance fees for the remainder of the World Cup qualifying campaign after breaking curfew to visit a disco. The players, including Napoli’s Marek Hamsik, will almost certainly survive without it.

Oi! Careful What You’re Kicking: An armadillo has been selected as the mascot for Brazil 2014. They reckon it’s because the kids love it, but we’re fearful that in a ball shortage, mistakes could be made, due to the awesome defensive roll move¬†(left) of said creature. You can’t be too careful in this game, y’know.

Dark Age Rage: Spurs spirited performance against a tough Lazio side at White Hart Lane last night was marred by… you guessed it, racist abuse. UEFA are investigating reports that Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Andros Townsend had monkey chants directed towards them during the game and “may decide today to open disciplinary proceedings against the Italian giants“. Honestly guys? Even your team are embarrassed by your idiotic, tired ‘antics’ now. Evolve, would you?

  1. Thank you for that. You definitely have it right: the issue of being in 'reaction mode' is probably the biggest downside of allowing the immediate competitive environment dictate your next move.

  3. Miss_F says:

    Oh my! Zlatan's shorts were having a right old party! ;)

  4. gin_in_teacups says:

    I'm so happy to see Jack! Adorkables forever!

    It took 4 blokes to spot the party in Zlatan's pants? We should all be hanging our heads in shame.

    It makes me so sad to read about those racist sons of bitches time and time again. Such sorry excuses for human beings they are!

    Thank god for the adorkables! There is none sweeter than Oxlade-Chamberlain!

    • Kristina says:

      And of course, welcome back, Jack! :)

    • Jayy says:

      I agree with you on both occasions Kristina. Its such a shame that racism still exists in society during this day and age – these so called football fans should be banned from matches for that kind of behaviour.
      And as for the Adorkables, Oxlade-Chamberlain is my favourite too, hes such a cutie with them lil' freckles!

      You are 100 % right. Shame that those people call themself supporters. They are idiots and should be banded from the stands.
