Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

sport Bundesliga national team WAG wife

Not just Germany’s most popular WAG, she may just be their most popular female celebrity. Respect Claudia Lahm, Kickettes. Image taken July 2010. Image Credit: REUTERS/Michaela Rehle.


- Possibly unscientifically-proven German search engine research found that Philipp Lahm’s wife, Claudia, was the most sought after woman on their ‘celebrity barometer’, based on the number of news stories she was featured in. Report runners-up were Anna-Maria Lagerblom (ex of Mesut Ozil) and Monika Podolski (wife of Lukas).

-Neymar took faux hawks to a whole ‘nother, epic level this weekend.

- Rafael and Sylvie van der Vaart proved their power couple perfection yet again. We’ll never grow tired of these two even though their standard of living will never be within our means.

- A suavely-coiffed Xavi attended the Catalunya GP this weekend, and some sources have reported that Ducati driver, Valentino Rossi, knelt down in front of Xavi and kissed his feet. (Sidenote: Bigfoot was also there.)


English football injunctions- Although we’re short on proper sources, we highly doubt Stacey Giggs was pleased to hear the latest rumours about her husband’s alleged intra-familial infidelities.

- Kickettes, do us a favour and tell the Baroness that no matter how high brow her closet is, the one rule neither she nor we (and all women, at that) are allowed to break: showcasing your visible tan lines in a strapless dress.

- And while your at it, feel free to give Peter Odemwingie’s denim disaster a middle finger salute.

- Mario Balotelli’s agent denied reports that his client has ties to the Italian mob, even though the city tour of Naples that his client was given was organised by mafioso members. What’s that idiom our Mums used to beat to a pulp? You are the company you keep?

Any blind or obvious items we missed, dear readers?

    Thanks, I was looking for information and your blog really helped me.

    Valentino did what…?! whoa, hehehe…

    And please kickette stop talking about stuff you most probably know nothing about. Mafia in the south of Italy runs waaaay, way deep, it is not like what you've seen in Hollywood films. Pretty much every neighborhood has a mafioso, etc. And if any of you want a good read related to this, please read "Camorra" by Roberto Saviano.

    I kind of adore Claudia! I love that she's not another supermodel wife (I mean she's very beautiful but she's not huge tits and a ridiculously tiny waist). I just respect her for that and think that he's pretty awesome for choosing someone for more than looks.

  4. @AgnesWonka says:

    oohhh Ryan….that's tough crap!

    what does Claudia Lahm do?…..apart from being a Wag

    Valentino?? ewwwww…you're cooler than that!!

    my obsession with xavi (in a he's hot way, i've always thought he was a great footballer) is new and starting to reach unprecedented proportions. don't entirely understand it, I would tower over him in life, and that is so not my thing. sigh. suppose that's the beauty of kickette. that picture with the aviators=mmmmm.

    the lahms are adorable, love him, and she looks lovely and down-to-earth. bless.

  6. mochara says:

    Neymar is actually really sexy, even with that ridiculous hair! And Giggsy, to think you were one of the only Man U players I respected! Well, I guess that still leaves Chicharito…

  7. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Ibi is really a cutie-pie he is really talented! He needs more confidence and he WILL get it with experience, but I see a bright future for him.

  8. Sergz says:

    What the hell. Last month Ryan Giggs was my idol and I have always bought United kits with his name on it since 1995. I still like what he does on the pitch, but what the hell, I can't buy the #11 now! It feels like the world has gone upside down. How the hell can my idol be such a douchebag? This just doesn't feel right.

  9. JA7 says:

    Yes exactly. That's what I love about her! :) We need more normal WAGs!

  10. Wow says:

    Ryan am sorry,but what the fuck is wrong with you? get your self some help pronto pronto, and i wouldn't be suprise if there are more women than we already know of! Poor stacey get yourself tested for every sexaul transmited diseases known! As for Peter kickette i don't care about that denim, the men is foine; I'am going to reserve my middle finger salute for another time, not for denim disaters!

  11. JA7 says:

    Yaay! I like phillip's wife, cuz she looks really NORMAL and not ur average gold-digging model.

  12. Jade says:

    I've seen the pictures of Xavi at Montmelo. Damn. Was. He. Fine.

  13. I really don't believe Mrs Lahm is so popular. Maybe in Bavaria, but nowhere else. Bet Lahm himself googled her 10.000 times to get her up. Since he's the captain…

  14. LisaB says:

    I can't even look at Giggsy anymore. With your own BROTHER'S WIFE??!! even Ashley Cole never stooped so low.

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      it feels like a soap-opera now!

      • mena says:

        This Giggs mess is long past Soap Opera and fast approaching Greek Tragedy! Your own BROTHER, Ryan?!?

        The poor kids in all of this. How do you even begin to try to explain this mess to them?

        • Sarah, Madrid says:

          His kids :( ! I will never get parents who cheat, esp when he/she is a public figure, just take a minute and think about your kids for god sake before doing it!

    • U&ME says:

      I agree I use to think he was not only a champion & gentleman on the field but off the field as well. I guess I was very wrong. I seriously hope that Raul never does something like that, though I know in my heart he ever would. He is one of the few true gentlemen left in football who knows how to be loyal to his lady.

  15. Devilish-x says:

    I can't believe what I'm hearing about Giggsy. He's a united legend and all but his wifey has surely gotta leave him now? Affair with the sis-in-law? Thats just horrible in a whole 'nother level.
    And Sylvie Van Der Vaart is just wow!

    Philipps wife is so beautiful!!!
