Kickette Catch Up: Your Weekend Gossip Cheat Sheet

Mrs Djibril Cisse at awards show friend Liz wife footballer

On Friday we started a new diet that only allowed us gin and tonics for 48 hours straight.

All in all, it was the first diet we ever seriously stuck to and as a result, we lost two whole days!


- Football pundit and former Strictly Come Dancing participant, Robbie Savage, announced via Twitter that his hero and best friend – his father – had passed away at the age of 64. Thoughts and well wishes for the entire family.

- According to research by Badoo, a social networking site, the celebrity most Italian women dream of having a relationship with is David Beckham. The country’s warm-blooded blokes picked Marco Borriello’s ex and Kevin-Prince Boateng’s current (who supposedly will be nude in a forthcoming issue of Playboy) as their second and fifth favourite female fantasy partners.

- Mrs Djibril Cisse (above, left) attended the Tesco Mum of the Year awards with her mate, Liz McLarnon, in London. Note: Mrs Cisse is not Liz’s mum. Also note: while Gabby Logan walked away with the Celebrity Mum of the Year prize, Jude’s sky high heels earned a nod in the fashion awards show of our hearts.


- Although Captain America will forever be Carlos Bocanegra in our eyes, an argument was made in support of Michael Bradley stripping his USMNT teammate of the nickname.

Italian showgirl Raffaella Fico girlfriend of City striker WAG- Tinchy Stryder, rapper and Manchester United fan, promised to make amends for writing a song about Man City’s Mario Balotelli by penning a track in Eric Cantona’s honour. “My favourite current United player is Wayne Rooney, but I’d like to write a song about Eric Cantona. When he played at United I just liked everything about him even though he was controversial,” Stryder said on the BBC1 show Football Focus.

- First Giselle, now Danielle Lloyd. Kickettes, you think WAGs of professional athletes should speak out at fans or critical foes, or should they forever keep their traps shut instead?

    While it wasn't the right thing to do, I don't blame Gisele for what happened after the Super Bowl. Of course she was already sad, disappointed and frustrated from the loss AND then you have some opposing fans being jerks and heckling her. She snapped, she's only human after all (even though it seems otherwise most of the time).

    Like I said in reply to a commenter below, a player's family should be off limits from heckling from opposing fans and a-holes in general, kids AND wife, even if that wife is a famous supermodel or notorious fame-wh*re. It's the simple principle that men (as these hecklers often are) should pick on someone their own size.

    Sorry…I was looking at the pics from Interview magazine with Carlos looking like he needs a sponge bath. Carry on! :)

    Umm, I am not in favor of Bradley becoming USMNT captain. I can only speak from past knowledge and maybe he can make a case going forward, but he's known for a bit of a temper, and I am not sure that he'd provide the right type of calming influence when things get heated (though you could say maybe he could help the team get riled up when they need a little fight in them). If that isn't taken into consideration, I also think there are others that probably have earned the spot before him. Firstly, Carlos is still in the squad for the most part, so he can keep it. If that should change, there are still the Donovans, Dempseys, and Howards of the team. Personally, if he gets fit and back into the squad again, I'd like to see Holden take it over in the future. He's a hard worker and is good for team morale.

      I'm not sure I agree. The thing about MB is he never gives up and will work hard no matter the score (example: world cup goal vs slovenia), and that's a quality you want in a captain.
      But I do agree that he has been known to have a temper.
      On a kickette related note: He has been on my finest 5 since I started watching soccer/football. So that may explain my bias.

    First of all, Boca will always be Captain America in my eyes!
    And I dont think WAGs should speak out but in situations such like these, she has every right, especially when her kid is involved. However, I dont think the swearing on Twitter is the best way to express it.

    I'm not all for WAGs speaking out against fans or teammates, their guys own or opposing, but if it involves her children go for it. Fans should never confront someone when they are holding children.

    • Kat says:

      I think fans should never confront family members, even the wives, even if they don't have the kiddies with them. What do the wives have to do with the game? Of course, it's a different matter if the wife in question provokes the fans, but in general, fans should know to leave the wife/girlfriend/kids out of it.
