Would You: Omar Gonzalez, L.A. Galaxy

Since our one-way ticket to ‘Cougar Town’ has yet to expire, we’d like to get your thoughts on Omar Gonzalez, Kickettes. The L.A. Galaxy defender made his debut for the USMNT in their friendly against Brazil last night, and he is giving us the feelings. All 6’5″ of him.

He would appear to have some skills too: Omar was named MLS Rookie of the Year in 2009 and also played in the recent MLS All-Star game. Well done, you.

Ever the faithful Kickette servant, yesterday Brazil’s Alexandre Pato made sure to lift up Omar’s jersey just enough to give us a torso preview (left).  Good work Pato, your muffin basket is in the post.

Obviously, someone will have to have a stern word with Omar about those anger-making, thigh-hiding compression shorts, but all in good time. At only 21 he’s got plenty of time to learn and concede to what we find acceptable in the game.

You likey? Anything else we should know about Mr. Gonzalez, Galaxy Girls?

    he is cute and I bet he has a personality. and you know what, if he has a personality he is good enough for me. believe me, you don't want to live with cristiano ronaldo and his ego!!!

  2. Lu says:

    Alejandro Bedoya tweeted this page to Omar.

  3. Kristyn:) says:

    ahh! he’s gorgeous : )
    i absolutely would

  4. Deedz says:

    I…don’t think I would. =/

  5. Michelle says:

    Yes! I love Omar!

    He is lovingly known as "Omar Smash" by Galaxy fans because he can perform a beat down on the field while still looking good.

    My favorite Galaxy player is Bryan Jordan. <3

    • Liz says:

      Bryan Jordan (including AJ DelaGarza & Omar)is on my top 3 from Galaxy. too bad he doesn’t play much :(

  6. CV says:

    I actually went to University with him. MUCH cuter in person than in this picture!

  7. caitanya says:

    “Cougar Town”? lol! Is everyone on Kickette in their 40s or something?

    I don’t find him particularly attractive, but his height makes my eyes grow oh so large! i love tall men! They’re like jungle gyms that we can climb around on :-P

  8. senora ramos says:

    i asked myself this very q while watching the match. i just don't know.

  9. Melissa says:

    He was unfortunate enough to miss the University of Maryland’s national championship seasons by one year two separate times but I have nothing but love for anyone that made my years watching soccer at UMD College Park amazing!

  10. romina says:

    no thanks i’ll pass on this one

  11. kaya says:

    He's OK, but definitely needs to work on his abs to make up for the fact his face is nothing special. He looks a bit soft in the pic with Pato.

  12. Pam says:

    NOT! From Galaxy I pref Josh Saunders, the 2nd goal keeper.

  13. Missy Manchester says:

    He's tall AND substantial. (Not like spindly Crouchie.)

  14. tiff says:

    between omar and pato (and dare i say…..neymar?!) i was on full fledge cougar mode last night.

    BUT……the heart will forever belong to boca.

  15. joey cole's gir says:

    oh yes i would.

  16. mrs.e.chivas says:

    Not my type, but being #4 gives him a big plus :)

  17. Violets says:

    Oh, Kickette, there were so many guys in last night’s game who I liked better (Benny? Timmy? Carlos? Landon? The Jonathans?). He’s cute, but there’s definitely cuter on the USMNT (also, the Jonathans sounds like it could be the name of an indie rock group or something).

    He definitely made some serious errors last night (goal #2, anyone?), and a lot of the sources touting him as the next big US thing seem to be overlooking them. He played decently, but I’m still not completely sold on him.

  18. brittany says:

    uh, yes i would actually. he did really well with what he had to deal with.

  19. Liz says:

    i was totally not expecting to see Omar Gonzalez on Kikcette, but i'm not complaining!

    ESTA GUAPISIMO!

  20. Ana-Fiona says:

    Ummm… not really…

  21. Leya says:

    yes bc i think he's cute enough…we gotta show some love for those not-so-immediately-all-the-time gorgeous boys! none of us girls are perfect, anyway…

    but

    CHICHARITO! <3

    It's unfortunate that Omar has to walk in his shadow in terms of "Would You" Kickette posts…

  22. Sorry we missed abusive comments earlier, Kickettes. On it now.

  23. Ess-Jay says:

    First picture, I loved.. Third picture with some abs, I loved. Second picture with him and the ball.. Not so much to be completely honest. I mean, I love footballers and I LOVE it when we see some skin… But, football’s not about tight tops. That top is FAR too tight on you darling.. It’s not rugby.. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but it just looks to me as if he’s about to go play some rugby, and he looks a bit too ‘big’ for my liking there…

    But.. In saying that… I probably would go there.. Those abs. He’s kinda cute… And imagine what those thighs would look like if he wasn’t wearing base layers… YUM! So a yes from me… Although he wouldn’t be my first pick from the USMNT… Hehe

  24. Angie says:

    I'll pass. The only USMNT member that exists for me is Boca.

  25. Lu says:

    I love Omar Gonzalez! He is so freakin cute. I love seeing him at Galaxy games, and I really hope to see him more with the USMNT. He is just so nice to look at. :)

  26. MLSluv says:

    I saw him at the Real Madrid LA game, he is quite adorable

  27. sarrible says:

    Unf, yes. During the national anthem last night I was all, Who is that tall piece of hotness? I enjoy him. Mr. Pato, however, was looking rather fat and fug, IMHO. I think he’s been spending too much time with Ronaldinho.

  28. Lisa says:

    from the face up he looks like Andrew Cunanan, the guy who shot Gianni Versace. The rest of him is perfect: 6 foot 5, smooth light brown skin and great tummy… but I’m sorry I cannot get past the resemblace

  29. annie says:

    ya, sure

  30. aps says:

    I would definitely…..NOT! Nothing about him is cute.

  31. Kate says:

    **this comment /user has been deleted for violation of our commenting policy**

  32. Julia D says:

    Yes yes yes I would. Right now! What a delightful new snack you have brought us Kickette! Very nice. The face is a little subtle (his body's so blindingly hot) but it grows on you…or at least it does on me. That nose, ay papi. He's just at that cusp of boyish/manly which is a delicious place to be :D

  33. Jamtart Heart says:

    I'm a bit creeped out by the racism and homophobia in some of the comments, but moving right along.

    File Omar away for a few years, and it's a distinct possibility he'll be very, very sexy. His face has a lot of character, and he probably just needs to grow into it.

  34. zztop says:

    um, not cute or handsome or even fugly cuddly, jolie laide or any other hotness enigma. But I'm sure he has a nice personality.

  35. MissEstonia says:

    Nope, I would not. Thanks.

  36. cherryboomboom says:

    Actually I would , because he soo looks like the guy we can actually be in a relation ship. like a down to earth boy with that cute face that a lot of boys have

  37. JV says:

    I am stuck… on the one hand a body like that and he's 6'5''?! On the other, he's a little bit of a buthisface.

  38. gin_in_teacups says:

    Omar doesn't do it for me but anything that includes some Pato is good in my book.

  39. crss2001 says:

    i'm gonna definitely do some MLS research…hidden gems♥ I love it!

    would i?? hmmm….i've always had a thing for younger men jijijiji…maybe…after a few shots of patron so i can get gutsy! come to momma!!

  40. tammyv says:

    I adore young master Gonzalez..My section of Galaxy season ticketholders has dubbed him "headlock" for his amazing ability to but attackers in headlocks and get away with it. Seriously, the kid is a fouling fool and hardly ever gets called for it.

    He is fast as hell and as a great awareness of the game. I felt for him last night because he was exhausted. He played 70-80 minutes of the Real Madrid exhibition Sat night, flew to NYC on Sunday and played Tuesday.

    Would I? no… Would I love him to maintain a spot on the USMNT, oh yeah
