Liverpool FC: Pining For Our Pinterest

Image via LFC’s Pinterest page.

We’ve yet to get on Pinterest because we’re lazy. But if this is how the social network was intended to be used – with football clubs creating virtual walls of mancandy that rots our retinas – then we’ll be scouring for an invite to join shortly.

One debate currently sitting very well with us is a question Liverpool’s official Pinterest page put to it’s female (and male; we know it’s true. Your man card won’t be revoked for admitting it) fans and followers: who are the best looking players to have never walked alone?

According to Paul Rogers, Head of Content in Liverpool’s Digital Media department, it’s not who you may think.

You know it’s not our thing to to come over all judgmental when it comes to taste, but while the response to the query featuring past and present players of the club has been an enthusiastic one, Rogers states that user suggestions have thrown up one or two shocks, too.

“I thought Patrik Berger might have done better than he has but it seems Steven Gerrard is winning. A short-haired Andy Carroll and Daniel Agger are both proving quite popular too.”

Isn’t it funny what a decent haircut and a finely tuned rear can do to a woman? David James (with a shaved head) is even causing momentary lapses in reason in some fans’ minds – but let’s not drag up that whole Talking Balls controversy again.

Rogers added that this contest will probably be never ending and have no clear winner(s) at the finish line, which we saw as our opportunity to get all competitive and force Liverpool’s digital hand anyway.

Kickettes, of the existing array of fine specimen LFC’s Pinterest page has to offer, who is the one (1) player you’d deem “best looking ever”? Moreover, is there one (1) player missing from this pictorial showcase who you’re ready to hit the campaign trail for? Choose wisely because you never know which of your suggestions might be added to their gallery sometime soon…

    how bout Jordan Henderson.

  2. Nikki B says:

    Xabi and Agger are the best looking I think. , oh god ..Agger is so……. hot ! Xabi oozes gentlemanly classy sexiness.
    I wanted to say Nando when he got his haircut but I just absolutely no more inclination for him no matter how damn sexy he might be.
    And even Dalglish when he was younger ..quite a looker ;) .

  3. jean says:

    Torres, Luis García (at least in that picture OMG), Xabi and Glenn Johnson for me. Liverpool's squar used to be really beautiful a couple of years ago tbh, not at all now. I'd keep Pepe from the current bunch, and Gerrard.

  4. nayet21 says:

    Daniel Agger. He's cute and has tattoos, that's kind of hot for me… And the players missing there could be Gonzalo Higuain or maybe Nemanja Vidic. They in red… Gorgeous!

  5. camille says:

    The finest are definitely Torres, Xabi and Stevie G! But that pic of Luis Garcia is cute too!

  6. Kaitlyn says:

    Steven Gerrard a definite must. But I think Martin Kelly and Jordan Henderson should be there in the future. Those two are just smokin’

  7. Jen says:

    Xabi!!! Also Agger, Stevie, and Nando(even though he's a traitor and broke our hearts!) I also have to say that for some odd reason/fantasy, I would add skrtl to that-such a bad boy!!

  8. Alessandra says:

    luis garcia!!! oh, how i miss him.:*(

    fdsfkl;s and mori mori morientesssss! thx for taking me down memory lane.T_T

    xabi, nando, and arbe just to top the list of LFC's best looking players that also happen to be spaniards.XD

  9. IrishBlue says:

    Agger! So many nice ones to choose from though. Martin Kelly is one for the future, a very delicious one indeed.

    There's an awful one of Peter Crouch with too much makeup on there, who the hell put it up?

    And Jose Enrique? Someone please enlighten me cos I just don't see it.

  10. littlegreenpea says:

    Put Skrtel on there and then we'll talk. Xabi Alons is the right choice, though. :)

  11. Paul says:

    We've added Jose Enrique for you Emma!

  12. JaneSpotting says:

    Definately missing the hotest most sultry baller…Senor Alvaro Arbeloa.

  13. Ella says:

    Agger and Torres :D

  14. Loninha - Brasil says:

    Xabi Fantastic, Incredible Yoann and Mario Gomez Simply Unbelievable!

  15. Helen says:

    Xabi Alonso all day and all night, come on! He once ran over my friend’s foot with his baby’s pram, he could run her over with his car as far as I’m concerned! I watched the 1st half of the last home game through Andy Carrol’s legs while he warmed up…not my usual type, but there’s something there!

  16. Alex says:

    Are you people blind? Because I think it´s obvious.

    I admit Gerrard has his good sides and if Nando hadn´t switch camp, he would do well too, but I think the answer is clear.

    Xabi Alonso. He is just plain beautiful

  17. saraloveslfc says:

    *____* why choose ? They are all hotties ! I couldn’t even choose, love them all!! :-D

  18. Jenni says:

    Patrik Berger is definitely the hottest Liverpool player ever. I also like Carroll and Arbeloa.

  19. Maria says:

    I've always loved Alan Hansen in his prime. So made up he's there!

    And yes, Nando is not ranking here cos of his actions…

  20. emma says:

    jose enrique

  21. Sarah says:

    Alvaro Arbeloa for me.

    • bri_saldana says:

      I know Alvaro is scorching hot! Xabi for me first tho…then Nando….Stevie…Pepe

  22. Miss Lampard says:


  23. TeamToffee says:

    Man, first time I get excited about something in red!

  24. Kat says:

    Agger for me is the best :) Andy with short hair but not long with the long hair ew Xabi too and Stevie of course. The traitor is not leading obv because of him leaving and saying not bad things about Liverpool nice to see Liverpool fans not voting for a traitor

  25. Kristina says:

    Oh,oh,oh, I can't believe it! They still perv on Glenn Hysén!!! I agree, he was a babe when he was young! Plus he's the proud father of Anton Hysén, the footballer who came out as gay a while ago. And Antons brother Tobias, who is also quite a looker. They've got some genes in that family.

    To answer the question, I don't know which LFC player that I think is the prettiest of them all, but I'd have to go with Glenn. He's one of the early sweet Swedes, he has shown his son so much support and even spoke at the Pride festival in Stockholm. Plus, he was bloody gorgeous!

  26. Carvivlie says:

    How is Nando not leading this?!

    • Mirella says:

      I guess, he would if it was still 2010!

    • anon says:

      because he bashed the club?

      • jean says:

        How did Torres "bash" Liverpool exactly? From all the stuff some Livepool fans said he said, none of it seem to be actual quotes. I still don't get it.

    • April says:

      Because they somehow dont understand the difference between "my favorite player that happens to be good looking" and "best looking". They're missing that the point of it is to be totally superficial.

  27. Mrs Emma Carroll says:

    Mmmmmmmmm!!!!! My Andy is gorg… Got to love a bit of a bad boy!

  28. Louise says:

    They're doing Xabi and injustice with the picture they chose, but he's still doing quite well.

    • hereforthenando says:

      I think that posting just one picture of Xabi does him a disservice. The man deserves a slide show with a minimum of ten pictures every time that he is mentioned.

    Agger all night and all day!
