Hottie or Nottie: Phil Bardsley

Phil Bardsley’s just signed for Sunderland, which seems to us a well-played and strategic move by Roy Keane. 

After all, the Black Cats are seriously lacking in sizzle factor lately. 

Still, we’re not entirely convinced this is the best move for the 22-year-old defender. 

Are his looks enough to collectively raise the team up from the bottom of the table? 

It’s your call, Kickettes: is Phil a hottie or nottie?


We think Phil is lush, but have to call whoa on the belt. We hate the buckle more than anything that exists, or has ever existed, in any retail establishment across the galaxy. A pair of flip flops and socks with a side of acid wash would have fared better for us.

    he’s no Paul Scholes, but the sexy eyes-lips combo could be rather intriguing…

  2. J says:

    That picture of Phil Bardsley, Chris Eagles+ Danny Simpson together was quie nice. I should watch the reserve team more…

    Hoping on a plane to the Northeast of England as I type.  Damn!

  4. tammyv says:

    **EDIT** There is just NO coming back from that.

  5. tammyv says:

    I have to go with nottie..sorry baby because your eyes, smaile, abs,mmmmm.. what was I saying?  Oh yes, no because you are a dirty manc and about to be tanted with the scumderland stench.  There is just coming back from that.

    Now, it is important to note darling that Keano is different. And why you may ask? Wellmy lust for him is based solely on a the dirty, angery, hate, sex model.  It is wrong, dirty but ahhh… he is pretty and sexy and dirty and angry and yeah and I understand that these feeling come with a shower.

    Oh and I am totally in for Some Lamps thigh love.

  6. Portia says:

    His eyes are gorgeous.  His body doesn’t look bad either.  I’m gonna go with hottie.

  7. The Fourth Official says:

    Sunderland does have one genuine hottie, Stanislav Varga <who?>, though he seems to have disappeared on permanent loan to Cheddar-In-The-Fog, or one of those other second tier teams where crap footballers dribble into obscurity.

  8. lose that girl says:

    I’m having difficulties making my mind up but I’m wavering towards NOTTIE. The eyes just aren’t enough in my books.

  9. The Fourth Official says:

    Only because Frank is currently wounded and needy and I have a soft spot for damaged men.  (Just ask my ex’s.) Once he is whole and hale again, he will once more be filed in my “maybe/maybe not” category.  Though a key goal scored for England would *definitely* move him onto my “Hot For Life” list. 

    Tammy, you say “sexy, angry, dirty hate-sex” like it’s a *bad* thing.  tongue wink

  10. Elise says:

    Okay, so Frank (sweetie that he is) has agreed I should still take the time to post here.  And after all, there are many things you can still do while typing!  tongue wink
    TFO, yesterday when I read you little post, I swear I almost passed out just at the thought!  Seriously!  I came over all lightheaded!  Later it did occur to me that you offered to fill in for me in the ‘no-f**king-chance’ that I wouldn’t be available.  Could it be that those 3 Frank pics I posted were indeed enough to sway you?  Hmmm?

  11. Elise says:

    Oh my God, that ‘wounded and needy’ thing is a killer, TFO.  There is absolutely no resisting it.

  12. Malin says:

    Ooh, tough one here. I’d say… Hey, what is there right in between hottie and nottie? I like the lips and eyes and I certainly like the glimpse of toned abs in the second pic, but somehow he doesn’t quite do it for me. Maybe if he had been shirtless in the second pic. And a bit sweety and dirty. I like them that way. (smirk…)

  13. cari says:

    no no no no no…maybe another picture for further investigation BUT definately not in these two…

  14. Erinti says:

    The belt buckle is a bit no, I agree, but overall, I approve.

  15. joeycole<3 says:

    those eyes
    that smile
    have got me
    total hottie !!

  16. The Fourth Official says:

    Setting bias aside – good Salford lad, former Man United, on his way to join the Man United Reserves, aka Sunderland – and just concentrating on the looks, I was on the fence.  Pretty eyes, nice lips, but looks like he’s zoned on Xanax.  Till the second pic.  Hel-LO! Great smile, great body.  What’s not to like? A big check mark on the Hottie Box.  Should make watching the Black Cats a little more enjoyable.

    More Hottie Then Nottie.
    But Im Still Not Totally Convinced. Maybe If I Saw Some More I Would Be. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    hottie. but he can’t beat keano:)!!!

  20. cassie says:


  21. Robin says:

    The eyes got me too. I give him half a hottie. And at least the buckle was a ‘PB’

  22. Kelsey says:

    Definite hottie, check out those eyes… *swoon*

  23. xlxcx says:

    It’s in his eyes. Total hottie. And that smile doesn’t hurt

  24. Nae-xo says:

    deffo nottie. Sorry ladies, this bard doesnt do it for me!!

  25. HKG says:

    major hottie!!! those eyes are very deadly!!!

  26. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    oh and btw is the posted time right for anyone else?? Mines 5 hours fast, just wondering cos I get confused sometimes.

  27. coolbyrne says:

    I third that, Johnna. 

    And second your hail, FO.


  28. The Fourth Official says:

    I second that, Johnna.  At times, I think Sunderland is the biggest bunch of no-talent Irishmen since Boyzone.  Only the sight of #16, brooding and seething on the touchline, keeps me coming back for more.  All hail, Keano. 


  29. Johnna says:

    Definitely hot. Gorgeous eyes.

    And le gasp, Kickette. With Keano as their coach, Sunderland has not been lacking any kind of sizzle at all.

  30. Elise says:

    This is a notice to say goodbye to you all since I’ll now be attending to Frank’s thigh needs full-time and will have no time for anything trivial like talking, eating, sleeping, etc.

  31. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    HAHA I like that definition of Sunderland, even if I cant appricaited your love of ‘The Keano’ you do still make me laugh.

  32. carly says:

    I don’t like his face, don’t ask me why.

  33. The Fourth Official says:

    Elise, Frank called and says he needs a massage on his thigh.  Can you take a break from the Chelsea match and head over there? Or should I take it?

  34. Elise says:

    He’s probably one of those guys that can have moments of hotness, rather than being full on hot 24/7.  And he does have lovely eyes, but then so does Rooney, so eyes aren’t enough. Even the lips aren’t enough.  So I’m going with Nottie.

  35. brandy says:

    Not on my “to do before I die” list, but he’s cute. Nice blue eyes <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  36. Becca x says:

    TFO – I Am In Love With Chris Eagles!!!!!
    Thankyou For The Extra Pictures. I Am Slowly Being Won Over By Him <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  37. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Im impressed with the other two guys in that picture TFO, like to see more of them.
    Tough call on this one, he deffo not a nottie so does that automatically make him a hottie??? Hmm im not sure………….*drifts into dream like state involving Phil Bardsley* …………….OK after much consideration im gonna go with hottie but only based on the fact he saw the light and took of the Man U shirt!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  38. Sarah x says:

    TFO, Whos The One In The Muddle Of that Picture, Hes A Definate Hottiee!

    Hottiieee <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    I Think If He Had A Little More Hair, He Would Be Better Thoo

  40. michelle TN says:

    He’s a normal hottie but not a football hottie.

  41. The Fourth Official says:

    Becca, here’s a shirtless shot after a friendly with Chelsea last summer.  (Pictured with fellow hotties Eagles and Simpson.) His nose is a little battered, poor boy. 


  42. c9 says:
