Good Week/Bad Week: Poultry & Bad Panties

The oversights were flowing thick and fast at Kickette HQ this week.
Luckily, we mopped them up in this post. Cool, no?
Let’s hope they’re not too free ranging, eh? Original image: Mike Hewitt/Getty Images.
To Humour A Mockingbird: Exposing oneself on the touchline is a rite of passage for footballers, but Stuttgart’s Cristian Molinaro may think twice before revealing his control pants in public again. The hapless defender was standing next to famed fourth official and Honorary Kickette Bibi Steinhaus, when he dropped his shorts to make his pre-game adjustments and his sooper-dooper skivvies gave Steinhaus the giggles.
Protest For The Pretty: Cosmopolitan has been taken to task by gay4soccer.com over the selections for their ‘Hot Soccer Players We Can’t Resist‘ list. They point out that while a few players are shoo-ins, several others are lazy picks based on profile vs. actual, legitimate hotness. There’s only one way to resolve this immovable object meets irresistible force paradox, Kickettes: head on over and give their poll the once over. We think you’ll enjoy the commonality of purpose you find there, too.
Hen Party at Fulham: We are going to restrain ourselves from joining the ‘hilarious’ egg gag method of reporting the story of Fulham FC’s chicken acquisition. This should make it clear why.

Defending The Indefensible, Pt I: Bayern Munich’s Breno (above) has been charged with arson after investigators concluded he started the fire which destroyed his home. In September 2011, we reported that the defender had escaped without injury from the burning building, but sadly a Munich prosecutor has stated that the player had been found to “have consumed alcohol at the time, used several lighters and possibly some fire accelerant [to light] objects around the house“. He faces up to 15 years in jail if found guilty.
Defending The Indefensible, Pt II: Speaking of court cases, Sheffield United’s Ched Evans and Port Vale defender Clayton McDonald are currently appearing before Caernarfon Crown Court charged with rape, after an incident at a Premier Inn last May. It’s alleged that the pair had sex with a 19-year-old female who was reportedly too drunk to consent, but David Fish, QC, who is defending Evans, claims she slept with the pair willingly. The trial is expected to continue into next week.
King Red: Director of Football Damien Comolli was the first casualty of Liverpool’s poor form prompted reshuffle yesterday, when it was announced that he’d left the club “by mutual consent“. It seemed as though King Kenny, whose leadership has been under increasingly intense scrutiny, was going to escape censure by the company’s owners Fenway until he received the dreaded vote of confidence from chairman Tom Werner. We know where that tends to lead, don’t we, Kickettes?
