Kickette Catch Up: Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

Rather than bore everyone about our hatred for Monday mornings, we’ve taken the more mature route by telling today to ‘suck it’.

Boy did that feel good!

Saturday

- Carles Puyol’s girlfriend, Malena Costa, was busy teaching Barcelona the next ‘big’ thing in goal celebrations over the weekend. That, or presenting Zumba fitness in Madrid.

- Sheree Murphy kindly confirmed for us that yes, her husband Harry Kewell gives her pregnant feet ‘the best’ massages. . Although she’s been living in England for many years, we also learned that Sheree’s temporarily moving to Melbourne and will give birth to the couple’s fourth child in Australia. All the best to the Kewells!

- Switching emotional gears for a second, we’re sad to report that Santos Laguna and Monarcas Morelia players and supporters were forced to scramble for cover after shots were fired in the 40th minute of Saturday night’s Mexican Primera Division match. One police officer was injured while chasing the suspected shooters, but it’s not clear what type of injury he suffered or whether it was the result of gunfire. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.

- Also highly inappropriate: this. Seriously, what’s up with the world’s footy fans lately!?

Sunday

- Chelsea and Valencia reached a deal (in principle) to bring Juan Mata to London while Atletico Madrid signed Falcao (and his abs) from Porto FC. For once, we’re actually enjoying all the summer transfer window activity.

- We didn’t realise LA Galaxy’s Chris Birchall had an adorable bubba and lovely girlfriend back in England – did you Kickettes?

- V Festival came and went over the weekend, giving Frankie Sandford just enough time to showcase her toned tummy. Back to the drawing board for us.

- And finally, kudos to the Brazilian U-20 team, who were crowned FIFA U-20 World Cup champs following their win over Portugal.

    she is good..

  3. mazzv says:

    I'm not sure about the temporariness of the move of the Kewells. Didn't he already sign for Melbourne Victory FC?

  4. L.S.R. says:

    Aww Melena looks adorable in that picture!! Frankie is soo over-hyped it's insane, or maybe it's just me. I don't find her body or her looks to be that great, maybe because I have seen better.

  5. Xoxosp says:

    I feel bad, you never showed information about FIFA u-20 world cup

  6. Agnes Wonka says:

    oh, I wanted Juan Mata to go to Arsenal :(

    congrats to Frankie Sandford for her incredible tummy!

  7. Mary says:

    That Kawashima insult confirmed all my suspicions about Belgians. As a Japanese person I feel extremely offended, and unfortunately will probably remain prejudiced against Belgians for the rest of my life because of this incident. Shame on them for such inhuman and base behaviour. Well, I guess not much to expect from a country that's produced nothing but a bit of chocolate.

    • Now@kickette.com says:

      A World gone mad, no compassion what so ever. Please don't remain prejudice aganist Belgians, Those fans did a cruel thing don't let all Belgians pay for it pls let it go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Mary says:

        Ok girls I will try…although it's hard. I am generally against prejudice of any kind but this one really was like a spear through my heart. We all cried so much for the earthquake victims and saw through their suffering. But you're both right I will try not to blame all Belgians. (I've always thought they were a bit weird though…)

    • Karen Walker says:

      Although I'm Dutch I always listen to Belgian radio and yesterday they talked a lot about it on the radio. Full of disgrace. It's just a small group who think because it's football you can do anything. It's ridiculous and it's awful and they will get punished for it. Don't blame all the Belgians.

  8. Erika P says:

    Reading about Kawashiwa's reaction made my eyes watery. I feel so bad for him. I hope that fans can represent their club with dignity and class in the future.
    On a lighter note, JUAN MATA!!!! Seeing more Spaniards is always good :)

  9. Lotte says:

    Disgraceful behaviour from those fans. Thousands of people died, the whole country crumbled. I have friends from Japan and I know how painful it was for them. Some people are just sorry excuses for human beings.

    On the bright side: Malena looks like a sweet girl. That Zumba thing, is it any good?

  10. xoWinnie says:

    Malena looks like Carly Cole in that picture…
    and i am totally jealous of Frankie's tummy…like…that's not even fair….

    on another note, these fanatic fans are giving this sport a bad name.
    this is totally unfair to normal fans who just want enjoy the beautiful game.
    really? putting people's lives at risk?–for WHAT exactly?
    people disgust me.

  11. JA7 says:

    Lol Malena looks so cute in that pic even though i have no idea what she's doing..

  12. Hot4Spurs says:

    Unfortunate for the fans in Mexico. :(

  13. Lucy says:

    I´m mexican and it´s so sad that this kind of things are happening in my country, I really hope this doesn´t affect our image away, cause we are more good people than bad :(

    • DebS says:

      I'm sorry things have been so rough in Mexico. The gangs and drug cartels are out of control, aren't they? Hopefully, it's not that scary where you live.

      • Lucy says:

        Yes it is, thank God it only affects certain areas of the country specially the north, I just wish this end up soon

  14. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Oh my god! What's with the Fans, how could they use such a disaster event for a FOOTBALL GAME. #%&#^#&#%^#^&#%&!! This is how I feel!!

    Let me just say I am watching Chelesa games regularly from now, Villas is too hot to be missed week in and out adding Mata to Chelesa YUMI! I just picked my favorite EPL team for the year xD.

    • xoWinnie says:
