Good Week/Bad Week: Never Work With Children Or Er… Fruit
An awesome round up of this week’s hot stories to ease you into the weekend. We recommend you enjoy it with a blueberry muffin and a
shot of vodka cup of green tea.
Super Bambi: Mesut Ozil became the latest player to shill his boots for Nike (top). Although most of Mesut’s pretty is obfuscated by funky special effects in the clip, there is sufficient exposure of the doe-eyed one for it to receive the Kickette stamp of approval. Just.
Trophy Wife: Sylvie van der Vaart continued her inexorable rise to the top of the WAG tree by being named ‘Media Woman of 2010′ at the Radio Regenbogen Awards in Karlsruhe, Germany.
She looked hot, natch (left).

H2-Woah!: The eccentricity continues at Manchester City, as news breaks that Micah Richards will be installing an oxygen tent in his house, in an attempt to speed up his recovery from a knock in time for City’s FA Cup semi-final against Manchester United. Let’s hope the entrance is clearly marked for him, unlike certain other fabric structures at City lately.
Surprisingly, Neymar’s ‘Bad Week’ is not a result of his appearance choices. Image: Getty Images/Daylife
Fruity Farrago: The week began well for Neymar (above), who scored both goals in Brazil’s friendly fixture against Scotland last Sunday. However, things rapidly went downhill when he alleged he had been the victim of racist abuse from a contingent of Scotland fans. It now transpires that the banana at the centre of the incident was discarded from a packed lunch by a German student and Neymar has been asked to apologise to the Scottish FA.
Goal Mou-th Fumble: Jose Mourinho (left) managed to lose his nine year unbeaten home record this week, although only unofficially. Real Madrid’s coaching staff (including Mou in goal) took on the press in a fixture at the training ground this week, with the game finishing 3-2 to the journos. We’re certain he took the defeat well, though.

How The Mighty Fall: Being made to look foolish by small children is becoming something of a habit for elite players. First Arsenal’s Robin van Persie gets lobbed by his four year old son, then the legend that is Zinedine Zidane hits the deck while playing a bunch of kidlings. At least Zizou can blame the pitch. No such luxury for RvP.
Kickette’s Community Section: If you didn’t already hear the news, this section of the site has gone kaputs – for now. If you don’t heed to our warning and try clicking around anyway, you’ll most likely be redirected to a place that features live streaming video of furry creatures munching on bananas.
Whether it’s football watching, shopping or surfing the web for pictures of naked players, tell us about your weekend plans, Kickettes!
