Good Week/Bad Week: We Made It!

Strains, speeding and sweetness abound in our user friendly round-up of the week’s major talking points.

Congratulations on making it to Friday, everybody!


Second Chance At Lurve: Is Sergio back with Lara? Certain magazines and social networking sites are publishing pictures that imply as much. For those of you now reaching for the consolation cookie jar, a word of advice. Don’t click the links. Even The Ramos isn’t worth the extra poundage accrued by such consumption, Kickettes.

On A Promise: Did you notice Leo Messi patting his legs after his first goal against Osasuna last week? He was making good on a promise he made five months ago to a young amputee who he met at the Nou Camp. Soufian, who didn’t let the fact that he has two prosthetic legs prevent him from practicing with Messi, wheedled a dedicated goal celebration out of the midfielder, who duly obliged. We. Die.

Bolton Bed Head: In case you missed it, Bolton’s blonde bombshell Stuey Holden returned to first team action this week, in his side’s Carling Cup fixture vs. Aston Villa. We’re thrilled to confirm that both his leg and his lovely hair (if you ever need help with your blowout Stu, feel free to call into Kickette HQ) performed admirably.

A Savage Strain: Terrible news for Robbie Savage fans. Yes, all four of you! The Dancing Doofus has strained his thigh during practice, which coupled with his self-proclaimed ineptitude on the dancefloor may well impede his chances on the show. We can live with that, though. We’ve already got bored with Sav Watch.

Been Caught Speedin’: You can’t call yourself a true EPL playa until you’ve accrued a number of motoring offences and/or filled a fellow professional’s vehicle with fish. So congrats to Carlos Tevez, whose punishment for reaching the heady heights of 38mph on the Chester Road, Manchester was a fine and points on his licence. We’re going to spend the whole day wondering what the photo on his licence looks like now. This, maybe?

Load of Bull: Defender Rafa Marquez has ensured that the New York Red Bulls locker room will be an uncomfortable place to beĀ over the next few weeks by blaming his poor performances on his team-mates. Rafa, who was booed consistently during the Red Bulls defeat to Real Salt Lake on Wednesday, stated in an interview that ‘there isn’t an equal level between my team-mates and I’. Uh huh.

How’s your week been, people?

    Sigh! Eversince I read this article I’ve been listening to Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ if this is real Sergio just know that for me it isn’t over! Nevermind I’ll find someone like you I wish nothing but the best for you! *sobs* don’t forget me I beg… Oh I can’t I just can’t!

  2. Agnes Wonka says:

    Leo Messi is such a good person?
    I like Sergio and Lara together, but at the same time, I love Sergio single ;)

  3. EMMITT says:

    I agree with you on this, really. Haven’t met too many peopel who think the same way!

  4. Jen says:

    Sergio and Lara back together deserves to go in the Bad Week category :(

  5. IrishBlue says:

    Awh Messi, that is so sweet! I bet that boy feels on top of the world after that :) , so disappointed for Afellay though, poor ickle thing.

  6. Latina says:

    ooooh I forgot something … for the GOOD WEEK/BAD WEEK …

    Well Lionel Messi (who some ppl think is a sweet, innocent, good person, guess what he is not sooo innocent) & Gerard Pique … Decided to burn one of the Barcelona's Staff members very old motorcylce… YES..They burned the motorcylce as a prank …

    But the next day they gave him a brand new motorcylce …

    I wonder what other pranks they have done this season …

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      I read it, I can't believe Messi is part of this prank though..

      Men can be so stupid, burning a motorcycle really?….I dont find it funny, or a prank actually

      • Kristina says:

        I think it was him and Pique together. They replaced it with a new one, that wasn't so noisy apparently. It's a rather hardcore prank.

      • PepaCandela says:

        Messi always seems so out-of-it to me, but whenever they ask a Barca player in an interview to name the funniest guys on the team, he is always on the list. It's so at odds with his public persona, but clearly there is more to him than people know.

    • taperjean says:

      well i hope the old motorcycle didnt have any sentimental value….jeez

      • Gladys says:

        I love those two, but I was thinking the exact same thing! Kind of mean, even if they did replace it with a new one. It's not surprising from Pique, but apparently Leo is quite cheeky (and apparently witty, too…still waters run deep, as they say).

    • Agnes Wonka says:

      cool…but very immature ¬¬

  7. Latina says:

    LEOOOOOOOOOOOOO i just adore him … he such a great player and person …

    POOR IBI!! :'( … I hope he gets better

    Happy that Lara & Ramos are together .. in the pics I have seen she looks very happy …

    Mou did something nice … wooow .. j/k I know the Mou is a good person at heart & all he says & does on the field & PC is all for show … nothing else (this i coming from a Barcelona fan)

    Stuart glad to see you back!!!

    Rafa just next time please SHUT UP!!! Cause you don't hear Theirry Henry saying anything like that ..


    CR7 & Irina will be getting married next summer (my thoughts are .. REALLY!! when before or after EURO CUP, I really don't see them getting married )

    & Andres Iniesta is getting married to longtime girlfriend/baby mama Anna Ortiz on July 12th, 2012 (I really don't think that will be the date … but I read somewhere that was the date … but I could see them getting married)

  8. Figgy says:

    Aw that was just adorable! Credit to Leo for fufilling his promise, bless he made that lil boy really happy!
    On a different note, gotta say I am really disappointed to the comments coming from Hargreaves this week.
    I really dont like it when a player criticises their old clubs. As a united fan I was happy for him but now he's gonna end up losing the respect from old trafford..
    Anyhoos exciting weekend lies ahead! Enjoy it gurlies :')

  9. Kristina says:

    Yes, it's awesome of Leo to grant that boys wish! To get a personal "message" like that from one's hero must be spectacular!

    Lara and Ramos looks good together. Here's to Luuuvve!

  10. Anjali says:

    Gotta love Messi, such a sweet gesture!!! and the kid is so adorable…

  11. loly says:

    Although I am a big Real Madrid fan, I respect Messi for doing this.
    and I really wish every other footballer do the same for ill kids who love them all around the world.

  12. Gladys says:

    In further bad news, Ibi Afellay tore a ligament in his left knee yesterday at practice, is having surgery today, and is likely to be out 4-6 months. As if I didn't worry enough already whether Barca's (looks) teenage (but is actually 25) heartthrob would be able to break into its clique of superstar midfielders and/or whether he would ever learn Spanish, now it seems like his career could be in danger (sorry to Dutch NT fans, as well). This is a serious injury. Get well soon, Ibi!!! We miss you!

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      Animo Affelay I was heart-broken for him..

    • Kristina says:

      Yes it's awful. Pep said that he's a sensitive lad and that he had been very scared when it happened. Poor thing! Such bad luck.

      • Gladys says:

        Oh no. That's terrible. I honestly felt sick when I read about the injury in the first place but I feel very protective of Ibi in general because he seems so shy (at least at Barca). From what I can tell, he's rather close with his brothers and his mom, so hopefully he's not dealing with it alone.

    • JA7 says:

      I was gona mention the ibi injury too! I'm soo gutted about it, i mean he just got out of a month long injury anyways! :( I just hope everything goes well and he comes back sooner, and hopefully it won't affect his participation in Euro 2012 <3 You will be missed dearly! #AnimoAfellay

  13. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Awww, although I didnt notice, but Messi adorable.

    I love Lara-Ramos together, I think they are so beautiful, I like her better than "Sara", I hope he used the summer to explore his options ( we noticed that he did and he wasnt interested!!) , realized what he wanted and commit to her. I wish the Ramos happiness!

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      Btw, I would like to the good news " Jose Mourinho donating his FIFA award for Bobby Robson Charity for cancer research", he deserves a mention..

    • xoWinnie says:

      oooooh! good take on the Ramos using his summer to explore his options! naughty naught, Sergio! ;)

      either way, better that than him cheating, and if he figured out he really wants to be with her because of it, EVEN BETTER! *sigh i hope she's the one here. is it wrong that i am obsessed with the prospect of a mini Sergio? he would be the cutest/sweetest/sexiest/most attentive daddy! it'd be too cute for words!

      Sergio is growing up ;')

      • Sarah, Madrid says:

        after seeing him with his niece , he is a great guy with kids..

        Mini-ramos awwww!..( but I feel like we getting way ahead of ourself here :p).

        • xoWinnie says:

          omg…what he said about his niece <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 so so sweet!
          we are, but i cannot help thinking of how it would be almost too cute for words!

    • Agnes Wonka says:

      I prefger Lara to Sara too!
      Sergio explores his options every season of the year ;)
