Good Week/Bad Week: Winning By A Nose

And we thought interviewing excitable boys was tough… Images: ADRIAN DENNIS/AFP/GettyImages, Milos Bicanski/Getty Images.

There’s a big game tomorrow night, obvs. Don’t think for a moment we haven’t been distracted from our work by it.


Pink Power: Their boys failed to qualify for Champion League action next season, but Lyon’s women won’t be giving a crap about that after they retained the women’s version of the trophy last night. They beat Frankfurt 2-0 in front of 50,000 fans at Munich’s Olympiastadion, a feat which led to much frivolity, including jumpy claps and pink cowboy hats. Awesome work, ladies!

Arise Sir Goldenballs: David Beckham’s royal connections were given another boost yesterday, after a commentator elevated his status by calling him ‘Sir David’ at the Olympic handover ceremony. Twice. Meanwhile, amid all the controversy surrounding the Team GB soccer team, might we respectfully suggest adding Her Madge’s name to the squad? Footage on Lainey Gossip yesterday suggests she could be a useful winger, given a bit of training.

Unusual Footballer Activity: As PopBitch reported a day ago, “On Monday Kolo Toure celebrated winning the league in Manchester. On Tuesday he travelled to London. On the train. In standard class.”

Nose Job: Glass doors are inherently dangerous. See: Gonzalo Higuain kindly demonstrating this painful truth in the above clip much to the Kuwait Airport’s amusement.

Bigfoot Encounters: Yolanthe, this is a big nuh-uh girlfriend in our books.

No Go, Bro: If Phil Neville thinks that nepotism will get him a spot on the England coaching staff, he should reconsider his stance. When he asked newly appointed bro Gary for advice on how to succeed on his A licence course, Gary replied, “Make sure you’re sat next to someone with brains“. Charming!


Nails painted? Check. Pink cowboy hat on? Of course. Handbag full of nachos and pre-mixed cocktails? Abs-olutely.

Finally we are primed and ready for action.

Enjoy the weekend Kickettes!

    Bit distracted due to Montpellier just winning the league, an' all.
    'Good week'?

  2. PhilippaB says:

    WCL final was great – Lyon bossed it, but Frankfurt weren't giving in easy.
    Deserved winners and back-to-back champions.

    I love higuain soooo much

    The Toure brothers are legendary. When Kolo played for Arsenal, he was asked what he would do if he were invisible, and said, 'i would rob a bank and give all the money to the poor'.

    Pipita was joking, you clearly see how he hits the door with his hand to make that bumping sound :D Albiol also told us not to worry ;) – "Seguridad,aficionados y por lo que veo prensa se lo han creído…Buen actor el Pipa" (via Twitter, of course)

    Poor Higuaiiinnnn :(

    The WPS is officially over. I feel bad for the players but must admit I never watched. Maybe some of our girls can catch on with France's ligue–they seem to be doing pretty well.
