Loic Remy: Upgrade You

Ok, so we’re prepared to admit that we do go on a bit about hair. But you see, our interest is totally valid and scientific and not remotely voyeuristic in that a good haircut is vital in the construction of the ideal man and is usually instrumental in giving him the self confidence to achieve his capabilities.

It also makes us fancy him more**. So there.

Don’t believe us? Take Fernando Torres. He realised that if his daughter was ever going to respect him as a father and a man, he needed to rid himself of the playful blond highlights some of us had come to base our entire lives around love. Unfortunately he now struggles to play football, but hey. He still looks good, and that’s the most important thing, right? ARGH.

Another man willing to sacrifice his career to test our theory is Marseille new boy Loic Remy. A youth spent experimenting with hairstyles that can only be described as creatively challenging (left) through death defying has now given way to a smart shaved look that has attracted more than a little attention in the Kickette office. The question of whether his career will survive the drastic change pales into insignificance against our burning desire to know what you think, dear readers.

Is he hot? Or not?

**We’re not saying that if Carlos Tevez got himself a decent barber we’d ever consider inviting him to the Kickette Annual Pool Party & Tractor Pull, but y’know. It couldn’t hurt.

    Ummmm maybe this was printed later but Torres got his goal yesterday and a cracker!
    My boy is not even 100% match fit can you imagine when he is?
    Yum yum yummmeeeee

  3. Lisa says:

    in the words of Eddie Murphy in Delirious: you got some big-ass lips

  4. Jessie says:

    definite upgrade

  5. Steph says:

    He looks good. The short hair is definitely working for him. And Torres! I love his hair now! I think it just works better for him than the blonde. He looks hotter with the short brown hair, IMO. :D

    that's a whole lot of niiiiiice. those lips, so kissable. yummmm. may need to check out marseilles as i'm scoping out a ligue un side. any french ladies that want to give me some direction (as a madridista, i'm NEVER going to be an OL lady) i'd greatly aprreciate it!!

    • JulieFromParis says:

      it is difficult to give directions because I dont know if you really “choose” a team. Example: Im all for PSG because of my father + I live in Paris and I also follow this Anglet team (non-professional championship) because it’s where my mother comes from. My hubby is all for Rennes because he was born there, and most of our friends all OM furiousfans because it’s a team and city with a great identity, hugely dedicated fans… Really, that is a difficult to help you because mainly, people support the team as a geo identity recognition.

      You can go there to have an easy recap of all the teams

      And here, you’ll scroll down and you’ll have a map that localize all the teams.

      And concerning the “kickette aspect” , there are not a single French player I drool on, my heart’s filled by the A├»mos Team :)

    I am all in favor of Nando growing it all back for the sake of his game, he was hot then too. He always will be no matter what hairstyle he's got, so until his daughter is old enough to remember, let Liverpool get their place back as a top team!!

    This post made me go back and read… again–probably the funniest thing I have ever seen on this site! "You might as well go and play for France!" LOL!

    Oh, and Loic? You're rocking the short and simple 'do!

  10. Dutch-Gooner89 says:

    Oh my days this dude is HAWTTTTT!!! Look at DEM LIPS on this dude, can i get a AMEN!

    • Maple_lee says:

      Amen to that sista! His lips are delicious, yummy, and lush with a side of hot damn!

      Maybe he’s a possible contender for a spot on the next Finest Five ;)

  11. Lyn says:

    Short hair looks good on him – and on Torres! I’m afraid Nando’s going to grow it out/dye it in an effort to get his mojo back, and that would break my heart cause his current hair is so, so hot.

  12. jecca says:

    Definitely hot. I know many Kickettes will disagree with me, but I was kinda hoping the Ramos would go for something more drastic like this. Baby steps, I guess.

    • Lisa says:

      Sergio with buzz cut? I think 75% of Kickette readers would need grief counseling if that happened. Although if you showed that top photo of Remy to Sergio and suggest an upgrade, he would more likely get a lip injection. Honestly senoraramos, I never write these things to hurt you…

  13. beri says:

    loving the “new” look…

  14. liv says:

    Goodness Grace; he's now # 50 on my list for that kissable lips, plum, pink & gorgeous!

  15. JulieFromParis says:

    Just wanted to add that I was concerned about the heart PB's discovery and Im really happy it wasn't too serious and he's able to play safe.

  16. keziah says:

    hmmm wouldnt have gone the old hair but short is def doing it for me :-) love a hot black man.

  17. aps says:

    he is cute and I'm happy he cut his hair but he needs a shape up

  18. cherryboomboom says:

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !! I cant believe he is actually on kickette !!! I freaking love Him !! He is for sue a cutie to me !! <3

  19. Zlatanista says:

    Hot. Look at those lips!

  20. JulieFromParis says:

    I wouldn't go for hot but he's good-looking

  21. Emily says:

    He cut his hair last year, actually. Not that anyone in France (apart from Gourcuff, of course) matters until they roll up at OM or OL, of course … ;)
