    Lukas Podolski half naked is a way of life. He's always half nekkid it's not a surprise anymore. Seen *everything* anyway.

    Jack Wilshere, who'd have thunk it, eh? No…wait. It was bound to happen so congratulations on ensuring that the new generation of England players pick up the baton of drunken shame. Much appreciated.

  2. Dru says:

    Another side note: Pastagirl (*must not laugh, must not laugh*) looks soooooo much prettier when she isn't wearing that funny frosty nude lipstick.

    I know girlfriend has big eyes (I'm v. envious of how big and GREEN they are) and v. full lips -with makeup, you have to choose to emphasize ONE area and she usually chooses to show off her eyes, but dear, let your mouth have a teeny bit of subtle colour once in a while, no one is asking you to wear clown-red lipstick!

  3. Lily says:

    Ikersauce are celebrating an anniversary? At an Italian restaurant? (LOL!!!!!!) They didn't go public until early this year, how did they keep it hidden from Spanish paps for months?

    I think it's more likely they might have been out for some kind of early birthday dinner for her, it makes sense since El Clasicois next Monday and her birthday is right the next day. Maybe they just decided to do it when they wouldn't be swamped with responsibilities around the day?

    Side note: her new hairstyle looks amazing. And I might not like it, but this is not the look of a cold-hearted bitch who does not have lustful feelings for her sweet, adoring, incredibly hot boyfriend:…

  4. Lily says:

    But from what I've seen of her, she's always looked v. reserved in public, though there are pictures of them about to go on holiday where the look on her face is as lovestruck/happy as any girl I've ever seen.

    Besides, Iker is like this with all his girlfriends, he's always been very open about PDAs.

    • rubyqueen says:

      i never really took that much notice of iker untill this year.but when i've seen him he looks rather reserved and controlled so seeing him like this so loved up and open is a surprise to me.

      • Lily says:

        I know it does come as a surprise but he was like this with Eva too, and with that girl from the bank last year. But I think it's sweet that he's one of those rare men who are actually publicly affectionate with their partners, a dopey-in-love Iker is v. v. cute to watch.

  5. caitanya says:

    podolski … RAWR! :-D

  6. sheila says:

    Is it just that the magazine editors are using the images that portray Sara as aloof? Maybe they are culling out the ones that show her displaying emotion towards him… But, even during the Kiss seen 'round the World she seemed like she was an unwilling participant.

    • Lily says:

      I think she was just stunned, and Iker broke it off pretty quickly too, remember? And they BOTH seemed absolutely dippy in love in their holiday photographs from San Francisco, maybe she's just more reserved when in public.

  7. Liz says:

    I am more excited to see Posh than Becks. He has never done it for me… but Posh, well that b*tch is just awesome! I'd be happy to show her around Sydney, but the poor thing has to go to Incest-Ville, Newcastle!

  8. missbubbles says:

    it just proves their exes are ok people who simply let it go with dignity….but i agree, press should leave them alone already….i mean, ok they are together, they are happy…there really is no point in announcing publicly every detail of their life

  9. Boo says:

    And how could you not mention that YG didn't start the game due to a pelvic injury. Guess Marouane did open his gift a little too fast.

  10. Thea says:

    Yes because she was living with her co-anchor until early 2010 – and their break-up was allegedly messy!

    • missbubbles says:

      well, not fair to their both exes….i thought they hooked up in february/march of this year but apparently, it was way before. Not for anyone to judge but they could have been more honest if that is true

      • Nausicaa says:

        Iker broke up with his last serious gf two years ago and had a couple of hookups since but Sara looks like she's the first proper relationship he's had in a while. As for her, she was seeing another guy but it was coming to an end right around this time last year, no one is v. sure just when it ended or how.

        Whatever, it's over and they look happy now, I mean if we can wish Wesley Sneijder and his missus well then surely we can do the same for Ikersauce too.

  11. GigiSantaCruz says:

    You know, rubyqueen, I kindda get that feeling too… But then I see old pictures of her and she has always looked THAT blasè, even when she wasn't with him. So, I'll give her the benefit of the doubt… And of course, this benefit is also given coz NO WOMAN in full control of her sanity, could NOT be interested in Iker, right?

    • rubyqueen says:

      agreed and on earth could any sane woman just sit there looking so calm when a sexy hunk like him is nuzzling in to you.???@-@

  12. BarceLisa says:

    -oh Jack Wilshere tsk tsk. The Golden Generation can rest easy now, the torch of douchebaggery has officially been passed!
    -How do I know for sure that Kun and Giannina are not together anymore? she let him leave the house looking like THAT.
    -Thiago Silva's wife needs to be given a sainthood. Why can't there be more WAGs like her?
    -will you be stalking out David and Victoria Beckham when they arrive in Sydney on Thursday? No.
    -Didi Drogba, I really misjudged you! You really are a wonderful human being.
    -Landon is getting way too much credit for that Algeria goal. It was great for a week after it happened but now its getting beyond ridiculous. Google the name Joe Gaetjens, where was his fame and fortune?
    -Awww shucks Ikerbonero, its been a year already?? I'm guessing not many of the Iker girls were counting. btw did they announce it was their anniversary? Its weird how that site just reported it as if it was a well-known occasion.

    • Lily says:

      That's the thing, I'm not sure if it was their one-year anniversary or just some kind of early birthday dinner for Sara since El Clasico is next week and they'll both be busy around the actual day.

      Kun and Gianina…..I suppose they have to see each other sometimes because of baby Benji, but LOL at the coment about them definitely not being together!

  13. footieflu says:

    Congrats to Iker-Sara…………. Even the very best of fortune-tellers could not predicts this one!!! But I'm happy for the two of you :)
    @Harry Kewell: you indeed have a pretty house…. mind if us Kickettes crash in? (we'll try to be good)

  14. Nora says:

    An Italian restaurant ? *mustnotlaughmustnotlaugh* Bwuahahahahahahahahahaha

  15. mrs aguero says:

    I think it’s time for some celebratory Carbonara!!!! personaly. I am Team Gonzalo Higuain and whatever female friend he has on his arm. No course not. It’s Team Xabi Alonsos. May his perfect cheek bones and male model traits stay forever in our minds.

  16. blake2108 says:

    I always had Jack down as a good boy.

    I'm dissapointed.

    (having said that, if it were me he was sneaking up to his hotel room I'd have no problems with him cheating, at all)

  17. blitzenTO says:

    Rafa and his GF make such a gorgeous couple! And they can dress themselves! Love them

    And yay for Didi! He may be a diving, whining drama queen, but he is also generous and an example to others. And a magnificent beast. But I may have said that before. ;)

  18. Well done, Jack. I, for one, am mighty relieved that the reputation of the England senior men's team as whoremongering asshats is secure for at least the next ten years.

  19. chefdi says:

    "London" Donovan is mockery enough … thank you ~ you did well and missed nothing (as usual)! And I agree that Sara looks a little less into the gorgeous Iker than he is to her, hmmmmm…

  20. Leya_S says:

    I'm really getting sick of these footballers cheating on their girls. I know being in the limelight doesn't make them better than us "commoners", but cheating is wrong no matter who you are, and ballers are NOT setting good examples for other generations of young men!!

    And on the opposite end of the spectrum, I like that Thiago Silva listens to his wife! He's one a few, no doubt.

    • CarmenOcio says:

      is it just me, or does it happen a lot in the EPL?!

      • Leya_S says:

        If I think back, most of these scandals are EPL players…it might be a reflection of the press a little, but at the same time, WHAT is this mentality that its "stylish" to cheat on your WAG?!?! You wanna be with a stripper, stay single. And a woman interested in getting in a relationship with a footballer should not have to think, "Oh he cheated, comes with the territory when you're with a baller"….I can't see how this should be acceptable.

        • Alex Samuel says:

          Cheating on your partner is never acceptable! It's as if a lady can go up to them and be like 'Hi, wanna have sex?' and they're like 'No, I don't think I should. Oh hold on, I'm a premiership footballer-let's do it! giggity!'

  21. Ava says:

    Poldi! ;)

  22. wow says:

    God blessDD heart, what a men!!!!!!!! And congrats to Iker and Sara, However i like Sara but she sometimes seems aloof towards iker; come on girl ur sleeping with Saint Iker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lily says:

      She always looks like that, even in old pics from before they were dating. And she definitely does not look indifferent in the dinner pictures that Kickette has linked to….seriously, have a look and you will notice.

  23. Thea says:

    Iker and Sara – together a whole year? Well that's news to me (and his ex no doubt!)

    • Lily says:

      He broke up with Eva back in 2008, and there was that girl from the bank last October but it looked like just a temporary fling.

      Dunno what they were actually celebrating, it could have been an early birthday dinner for her, even- I seriously don't think they could have kept a relationship hidden for 3 months from the Spanish paps!
