Hottie or Nottie: Croatia’s Ivan Rakitic

As our very astute Kickette, TFO, so wisely observed in yesterday’s balcony posting, “Does anyone agree with me that any Croatian with a surname ending in “ic” is pretty hot? I found that to be a truth yesterday.“

Agreed.  Perhaps we should start a daily Croatian sizzle query schedule. Interesting.

Here’s Ivan Rakitic at a news conference this morning.  Does the “ic” theory hold for you?

    No sorry I think he should stick to long range naked shots – he can't cut it close up!

  2. jax says:

    Eeew he's a spotty adolescent – maybe a hottie in 10 years time with a good hair stylist… I need more -ic evidence. Will be watching Croatia and other ic countries more closely.

  3. Brandy says:

    Nope, a nottie for me. It’s a combo between the bags under his eyes like he is 30+ and the pimples like he just hit puberty. Oh yea, and his face is ugly.

  4. mistresschristina says:

    Mmm. Yes please. I love me some eastern european boys!

  5. Anja (Miss Red) says:

    I know “ic’s” much hotter than these… :P But they don’t play for Croatia (or any other team). :P They just live where I live :P

  6. Venice says:

    TFO, I would definitely agree in case of Josip Tadic, click here. He's a young hottie. But then, there's Ante Rukavina, see here, a promising cutie except there is no -ic.

  7. Anja says:

    Well, there's an exception to every theory and this clearly is one.

  8. Anamarija says:

    Oooh Im sorry Kickettes,youll have to google,but believe me,its a man unlike babyface raketic:-) Just google Mladen Petric,TFO I wonder how that hottie didnt catch your eye;-)

  9. The Fourth Official says:

    Mladen Petric. Yes. You see, this is what I mean about the ics. Hot, dirty, hot. <img src="http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll315/reddevilworshipper/Kickette/610x.jpg&quot; border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll315/reddevilworshipper/Kickette/petric101006_700x692.jpg&quot; border="0" alt="Photobucket">

    Looks too young for me. Sorry.

  11. FootballerChick43 - "Mrs.Ballack" says:

    Mmm.. no. Not at all.

  13. charisma says:

    I find him kinda nottie like. He plays good though.

  14. DiorHeels says:

    HELLO, he is hot! :0 How have I not seen him before when I’ve seen him play a million times?

  15. MoonChild says:

    Well, I’m just going to state that he’s not my cup of tea. wink 

    And yes, your theory is partially correct.

    *Most* Croatian, Serbian and Bosnian surnames have an ‘ic’ ending, with the exception of a few.

    Being Balkan, I can verify this.

    raspberry

  16. mila says:

    average nothin spesh seriosly croatians do nothing for me cept for that mladen petric or wateva he’s hot

  17. HoneyBee says:

    Oh I love the fact that Cratians are on the menu every day.And nice to discover other Croatian Kickettes.And my name ends with ic-too.HE IS VERY CUTE,HUMBLE,TALENTED, CHARMING,HAS NICE THIGHS,NICE BUM.HOTTIE! Needs few more years to mature but wouldn't mind playing one-on-one with Ivan.THANKS TFO!Yes I like Petri? too.

  18. The Fourth Official says:

    Yep, I'm staying with the "ic" theory. And yes, we need daily empirical photographic (preferably shirtless) evidence, Kickette. He's cute! What are you all going on about? Sure, he's young. And he needs our hair advice. But definitely very cute. Bring on the ic's!

  19. The Fourth Official says:

    Alright, I give up. But when they play again next week, and you all start going on about the hot "ic's", I'll just laugh at you all.

  20. cheska_so_fierce says:

    nottie.

  21. jax says:

    Sorry, Fourth so far the 'ics' are 'ick' Still looking though..

  22. louisquatorze says:

    Ivan's got potential, but he's 19 and still looks like a teenager. We should check back at mid-twenties and see what he's like then.

  23. Anna (Frau Manuel Ne says:

    hum.. i kinda like him. he plays for schalke, with my dear manuel neuer ;~

  24. Venice says:

    Ivan Rakitic, ahahahaa! He's still a baby. Remove the poor excuse for facial hair and he looks like a teenage girl. I'm incredibly proud that Kickette has discovered Croatian guys as in my humble opinion they ARE the best looking men around. But a casual stroll down the waterfront in Split will let you see men much better looking than baby Ivan.

  25. Venice says:

    Mladen Petric, yes, that's more like it. He's like the dirtier version of Wentworth Miller from Prison Break.

  26. lose that girl says:

    No…..nottie. He looks like Doogie Houser!

  27. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    Blair, I'm with you he looks like he's 16 and he's just not doing it for me. Or perhaps we're spoiled from yesterday since this Croatian is fully dressed. The other thing I noticed from the Croatia match is how much Ivica Olic looks like Daniel Craig. I may be the only one who thinks this.

  28. TammyV says:

    TFO… I love you and all but no dolly, just no. I agree with Blair, Boy bands stopped be good when Robbie left

  29. Sri says:

    OMG I knew he would end up on here sooner or later. I agree with some of you: give him a few years to mature, then we’ll see. Petric is definitely up there, along with Josip Tadic. But has anyone else discovered Vedran Corluka (Man City)?

  30. The Fourth Official says:

    Venice, your Tadic link didn’t work for me, however, I googled (being ever-industrious and thorough), and yes, he’s a young hottie. And Rukavina. Perhaps we need to amend the theory.

  31. Dolce says:

    Ummm.. no, not this “ic”. However, I’m thinking that a full body shot may be more helpful! (Yeah, I know, I’m spoiled from the Monday Mmmm..)

  32. Anja says:

    But with Mladen it’s a whole different story… Delicious.

  33. Paris says:

    Nottie

  34. Blair says:

    Maybe if you’re down with that boy band, I’m too sexy for my hair sort of thing. He looks like 16.

  35. lose that girl says:

    No…..nottie. He looks like Doogie Houser!

    I need more evidence before I can say something jiji

  39. Becca x says:

    im not sure :S
    undecided… have you more pics?

  40. danina says:

    oh yeah, i think he’s a total hottie! but i’ve allways liked younger men… *oops*

  41. Genevieve says:

    NOOOOOO A complete nottie I’m afraid Areas requiring improvement: lame 90s boyband hairstyle, bad choice in necklaces, dodgy facial hair But he seems like a normal guy and has actually grown on me since I started writing this comment…
