Monday Mmm-Off: Claudio Marchisio v. Alexandre Pato

Image sources: Tumblr.com; Max-Douglas.com.

Standing beneath unforgivably bright lights for hours on end, trying to convey another person’s vision of “stylishly sleepy” or “attractively angry” can be quite the tedious task. We wouldn’t know firsthand, of course, but what’s a Kickette to do with these photos other than pick one posing player to star in our next nighttime dream sequences?

Who do your pupils prefer as the best lad-in-an-Italian-mag: quietly cute Claudio Marchisio (March issue of GQ) or big pimpin’ Pato (April issue of Vanity Fair)?

    Claudio O O O O O O!!!

  3. laligaforladies says:

    I do love me some Pato, but I've gotta go with Claudio all the way on this.

  4. Marika says:

    Boooooooom, my vote goes to Claudio. I could drown into those eyes. Pato – still nothing to me.

  5. NinaNoir says:

    The guy in the black and white pictures is not a professional model?!? Why?!? All I can say is he's got to be a hell of a footballer to be making a living out of that instead of modelling, which seems to be a natural talent for him. I'm just… Wow.

  6. Gen says:

    Marchisio … no contest… the things I could do..

  7. Rossanera says:

    Also (because I love Claudio) I would like to point out how often he feels the need to inform whomever is listening how much he loves Roberta (his wife). AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

    I mean, the caption on the Vogue cover (below) is "I go crazy for my wife, Juve and shoes." http://calcionelcuore.tumblr.com/post/4038832110/…

    Goodddd why do italian men have to be SO friggin' gorgeous? Claudio'll basically get you to do anything with those eyes…

  9. Winnie Mata says:

    lol that is part of the most annoying thing about coming to this site as of late.
    i gave you a thumbs up, if it counts :)

    • Cara says:

      Thanks Hun. And I Know, its like you cant have a personal preference because im peoples eyes its the wrong one… Even though the key word is 'Personal'

  10. Winnie Mata says:

    is this a serious question? Marchisio–HULLO!
    he is a stereotypical embodiment of what
    i used to believe all Italian men looked like.
    now that i know better, he is simply an embodiment
    of what all Italian men SHOULD look like…
    lol kidding…

    either way, he is beyond hot. this is not even a far match-up. poor Pato.

  11. i love Marchisio's beautiful blue eyes ( which cannot be very well seen in these pictures)

  12. balicious says:

    I vote for Marchisio. still have questions?

  13. Rossanera says:

    Well that's just RUDE. I just gave you a thumbs-up to compensate.

  14. Sarah, Madrid says:

    Oh Pato! you are taken :( , yum delicious.

  15. Taskeen says:

    Eventhough Pato is representing us curly nationals I'd still say Claudio (its difficult to look that good whilst sniffing yourself! and the second pic just speaks for itself)

  16. mochara says:

    Pato wins for me, he kinda reminds me of Orlando Bloom……. mmmmm

  18. BarceLisa says:

    Marchisio, no contest. Look at those eyes.

  19. diana says:

  20. MadridistaJenn says:

    Damn Pato! He looks so mature and sexy and just a little rough with the facial hair! Damn!
    *officially in my happy place*

  21. Zahara says:

    they are both really hot! but, i love love love the way patos lovely curly hair works for him, so pato.but damn claudio is a stunner too

  22. blitzenTO says:

    Marchisio, no contest. Makes me want to tuck the sleepyhead in and read him a sexy bedtime story.

  23. Rossanera says:

    Claudio, hands down. Such a beautiful man.

    • Gill says:

      Agree. Claudio is the man of the pair (sorry, Pato is still too boyish-cute for me!) and his pictures do define the term GQ MF
