Good Week/Bad Week: Monochrome Madness
Don’t panic, the Kickette Special Investigation Unit are on this. They should have a definitive answer for you by the time Javi Martinez retires. Image via twitter.
If we are what we eat, call us fast, cheap and easy.
Just thought you needed to know that, Kickettes.
Fashion Feil: After our probing interview technique last year, we didn’t think there was anything left to learn about the Benny Feilhaber. Then we saw this video of him showing the Boston Channel around his wardrobe. The hair. The metallic shoes (1:56). The er… spangly blouse (2:30). Benny? Call us. We have a whole bunch of new questions.
Harty Applause: England’s No.1 and owner/occupier of the top spot in our schedule of furry smurfs turned twenty-five yesterday. Yup, Joey Hart has hit the quarter century and to celebrate, Manchester City have put together a delicious gallery, showing the keeper in all his monochrome majesty. Altogether now, Kickettes. Wowzers!
Reading Royalty: Reading FC confirmed automatic promotion to the heady heights of the EPL this week with a 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest. This is of interest to you because new owner Anton Zingarevich’s wife is a 23-year-old lingerie model called Katsia, who, according to some reports, is going to be giving Coleen a run for her money. Watch this space. Eventually we’ll work up some enthusiasm, we promise.
Barber Bombing: A visit to the hairdressers can be a traumatic experience at the best of times, without crowds of people waiting outside to poke fun at your blow out. Newcastle United’s Papiss Cisse learned this when a visit to his local barber for a trim and half of Tyneside turned up outside. Despite appearing to be utterly confounded by this, the super striker got himself together and signed a bunch of autographs for his adoring fans before escaping in his swank-mobile. Aww.
Hold The Chocolate Therapy: Has Javi Martinez got a girlfriend? We’ve reviewed the evidence posted on his Twitter this week and have concluded that “he might have“. That’s not bad week for some, that’s bad month.
Down In The Demps: Fulham hero Clint Dempsey has been overlooked for the shortlist of the PFA Player of the Year Award, much to the chagrin of fellow USMNT player Stu Holden. Deuce did not make the list despite scoring 16 goals for the EPL side and Holden tweeted his disbelief at the decision on Monday. We didn’t, but will gladly offer comfort to both if they would care to pop round to the office.
Actually, go on. Crack out the Jaffa Cakes anyway. We have.
