We’ve got to say, while canvassing your opinions as to the hotness quotient of various players is an endless source of fun and amusement for us, too much of a good thing is bad for you. We actually ate so much confectionery yesterday that one of us is dipping in and out of a sugar coma as we write, so you can be sure we’ve tested the theory thoroughly.

So, for our latest reader poll we’re going to change things up a little. While your evaluation skills of fluffy to fearsome ratios and fitness parameters will still be rigorously examined, we want you to apply them to a slightly different type of subject.

We want to know who you’re girl-crushing on.

Yeah. It’s a massive deal.

We’ve selected three female representatives for this challenge – women who for one reason or another turn up on our pages fairly regularly and seem to generate a surprising amount of interest considering we started out as a male appreciation forum.

Your instructions for voting purposes remain the same. Some of you might actually have designs to marry one of these girls and live happily ever after, some of you might just find yourself inexplicably drawn to them as relief from the acres of macho manflesh on display. We don’t care. Just tell us who you want to share a milkshake with in a one straw only type deal, and we’ll sit around and coo at the results for a while, then remember to post them.

What are you waiting for? A toaster oven?


Eva Carneiro – First Team Doctor (Chelsea FC)

Chelsea’s hands-on health practitioner caused a sensation when she first put in an appearance on the Chelsea bench several months ago, and interest in her hasn’t wavered with time.

Whether it’s just the fact that she’s actually doing a job that we all envy a little too much for our own health, or you buy into the rumours that her presence is affecting Chelsea’s on-pitch prowess, the amount of love (and traffic) for Eva C has surprised and thrilled us more than you could ever know. The fact that she is ridiculously hot has nothing to do with it.


Alex Morgan – USWNT Striker

So we’ve all fallen for a hot forward at some point or another (for most of us, it’s how we got into the game), and we unashamedly admit that Alex is one of the hottest out there. Our coverage of the Women’s World Cup last year showed us that we weren’t the only ones to have noticed.

Last year we learned that Alex was wifed-up with Seattle Sounders midfielder Servando Carrasco, but we like to think that our interest has inspired her to up her game lately – check out her experiments in body paint for Sports Illustrated before voting and see whether it’s worth fighting Servando for her honour. We think it might be.


Nagore Aramburu – Wife Of Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso

Someone we definitely wouldn’t consider fighting, even for Xabi , is Nagore Aramburu. Yes folks, the female half of the Kickette ‘Power Couple Of The Year’ exudes moody menace from every perfect pore when she’s not producing beautiful babies, and even with our street skillz we’d be nervous to take her on in a scuffle. We’d be bitchfaced to death before running like hell was even an option.

The question is though, would we actually enjoy that? We’re keeping quiet (it’s best we don’t expose you to our homemade brand of fantasy fangirl fiction), but you can vote anonymously. No one will find out, unless you post your reasoning in the comments section.

In which case, expect it to be featured in a huge font when we publish the results of this poll.


Come on, you guys know how this works now, surely?

    Nagore? Seriously?
    Who is she outside of being someones wife?

  2. Andrea says:

    Alex is my girl-crush. She scores goals AND she's way hot with amazingly huge and powerful quadriceps.

  3. Blackwood says:

    where are Hope Solo and Abby Wambach? and Nadine Angerer? I'm sorry, I wouldn't vote for any of these girls, none of them do it for me., although I would probably support Alex because she's a pro player.

  4. [...] GUYS, DON’T VOTE. THIS ONE ISN’T FOR YOU. SERIOUSLY, STOP. NO, REALLY, DON’T CLICK THAT. SHEESH. GUYS NEVER LISTEN. Girl crush poll time! Since the guys in the room aren’t allowed to vote (because that’s just a crush, and we already know how you feel about Alex Morgan shut up you’re getting creepy-) just sit there and ponder girls crushing on girls. // Kickette [...]

  5. Ade says:

    you mean to tell me Shakira is not an option in this poll =OOOOOOOOOOO

  6. Agnes Wonka says:

    Eva for the envy and Alex for the girl power!

  7. freckledtattoo says:

    Oh, now that was a tough one!

    All three of them are really pretty and kick ass by the way…
    Went with Alex, since I've really had a girlcrush on her since the Women's World Cup! :D

  8. Einah says:

    So we’ve all fallen for a hot forward at some point or another (for most of us, it’s how we got into the game)

    Laughed out loud when I saw this :P Mine was Canna first but it was Veeyah who got me hooked! You're a genius, Kickette!!!

    Kickette Gals, who was it that got you in the game?

  9. xbabyshakesx says:

    Voted for Eva! ^^

  10. Stasi says:

    EVA,, the other girls are made up with makeup and designer clothes and eva is regular but still look pretty .

  11. EMMY says:


  12. RedDevil says:

    AVB sure does drag the ladies along with him.

  13. rossanera says:

    Eva, because as another woman in a profession traditionally dominated by men, I know how hard she has had to work to get to where she is and hold her own, and that sort of strength is sexy as hell.

  14. Lola says:

    Nagore freaks me out in these pictures. She looks so cold and plastic, sort of. And that stare!

    Anyway, for me it's Eva. Or Alex. I can't chose.

  15. hbandshbreak says:

    Fatimire "Lira" Bajaramaj, Hope Solo, Abby Wambach, Louisa Necib, Olalla Dominguez, Homare Sawa and Jessica Landström. I love all of them along with Nagore (my vote), Eva and Alex.

  16. Leya_S says:

    Tough choice, they're all hot.
    Much love for Nagore, but I gotta love Eva and Alex because they're both in typically male-dominated professions. But I'm gonna go with Eva because there are a lot less female physios than female footballers.
    Also, shout out to Sian Massey, and all other women who are appearing in football, reminding us that women can do anything that men can (and then some).

  18. xoWinnie says:

    i picked Eva because she is beautiful just as she is. without being all red-carpet done up. Nagore’s eyebrows scare me in that picture though. she looks evil…

  19. Sara P says:

    I am going to go with Alex Morgan. She is fierce on and off the field. Love it that we have an athletic woman on this list! :)

  20. littlegreenpea says:

    EVA ALL THE WAY!! I have to say I admire all of them, but Eva gets my vote because she's amazingly awesome and has a great job.

  21. Sam says:

    sooo unfair cummon girls Eva's in kit and the others are made up…….go Eva

  22. Kristina says:

    Eva. No doubt about it.

  23. PepaCandela says:

    Honestly, they all kind of kick ass!

    Votes for everyone!!!!

  24. Flora says:

    Nagore is just simply GORGEOUS! Any women would kill to have her life!

  25. Anna says:

    Alex Morgan of course,She's so HOT !!Not fair to put Nagore we all know she'll win because….

  26. Alone- Brazil says:

    The Viva is important to all us women who live or rather survive in this crazy world and directed by men cedentos blood and power! We women are too, are the icing on the cake and sugar that bitter coffee! hahahahaha Viva to all women be they football or not! We are too!

  27. hansh says:

    I have to go for Eva. How cool is it that she is ridiculously beautiful AND an empowered woman who is succeeding in a typically male job?

    • Anya says:

      Hell to yeah with that one!
      That woman has my full respect, absolutely no jealousy – which is weird, I don't like pretty women.

  28. Sarah, Madrid says:

    You made it hard as I am stuck between Eva and Nagore, I would go with Nagore because I just love her, although in reality caroline is totally my girl crush from the WAGs

  29. PhilippaB says:

    …oh, and Fatmire Bajramaj, Elodie Thomis, and Alex Scott.

    Sorry. Just got onto a train of thought there…

  30. csh says:

    Alex for the win. Partly because when she was interviewed by Extra Time Radio (an MLS podcast), they asked her how much they could talk about Servando, and she replied "you have 20 seconds." Heart that.

  31. PhilippaB says:

    Easy. Louisa Necib. http://www.lexpress.fr/pictures/268/137266_la-mil…
    Closely followed by Kerstin Garafrekes. And Hope Solo. And Wendie Renard. Who *all* play football. Themselves.

  32. Kat22 says:

    This is a really difficult one Kickette, but I actually voted for Alex Morgan. She's a football player AND gorgeous – what more could you ask for?

  33. D0li says:

    I'm sorry but Kickette made a bad selection here.. none of these girls do it for me, and I'm a lesbian!
