Kickette: The Predator Is Launched

Yup. He’s spotted her approach. Poor boy. Images: Getty Images/Zimbio

Unlike most of our footballing friends, we know how to operate a Twitter account without offending anyone. Most of the time. Indeed, it’s something of a secondary news outlet for us, allowing us to leak breaking gossip from the frontline. For example, if you don’t follow us, you may have missed out on our live reports from the launch of Adidas’ new Predator boot yesterday.

RvP looks on as a scuffle breaks out near the back of the room. Who might have been involved in that, we wonder, nonchalantly?

Yes, despite the sportswear manufacturers’ best efforts, a Kickette staff member was able to sneak into the Truman Brewery (oh, who are we kidding. She lives in there) in London and frighten the living daylights out of the likes of Nani, Kaka, Fernando Llorente (top) and Robin van Persie who were all present, correct and nervy in their matching outfits.

Prior to discovery, our woman on the inside was able to consume the required number of Jaffa Cakes to invoke her inner loony (thirty-two) and then set about unnerving Llorente, making false allegations about Robin van Persie and pursuing Jack Rodwell in the hope of catching him naked, shortly before she and her shopping trolley full of sweets were summarily banished from the event.

Sigh. We had such high hopes. More fool us, it seems.

    Hello lovely lovely boys.

    Meanwhile, why is Kaka so precious? How can a grown man be THAT adorable? It defies reason.

      kaka is so cute it hurts:)))))))) lol

    • Kat says:

      Totally agree! How can he be as adorable as a 6 month old baby with chubby cankles and dimples AND be hot at the same time? How? How?!?!?!?! It's amazing how he can induce both "awwwwwwwwwww…" and "raaaawwwwwrr!" simultaneously!

      And I really think he looks like his son Luca in that photo.

  17. Hazel says:

    Oh, Kickette. I thought Llorente was the predator to be launched! I was about to volunteer to be the prey.

    The other day one of my students that I advise said "If I had to choose to be any footballer, it would be Fernando Llorente, bc he's an awesome player and all the girls love him." And all I could think was "Yes, yes, we do."
    RVP looking all sorts of sexy as well with his dreamy look and adorable touch-of-gray temples.

    There is not enough time in the day to decide between the two pictures (Fernando Llorente and RvP) for my computer monitor wallpaper. I have worn my mouse out rolling back and forth. Wait, I have two monitors. Halla
