The WTF Files: William Gallas

Comments Off

One must always welcome and support diva behaviour if not for the entertainment factor, let alone for something to yak about at the water cooler. But William Gallas of Chelsea has taken high maintenance to an entirely new level, and not in a good way.

Gallas has just been sent off to Arsenal as part of a deal that (finally and unsurprisingly) brought Ashley cole to Chelsea, and the club has released a very interesting statement.

Claiming they want to make their supporters “aware of the full facts regarding William Gallas and the lack of respect he showed to the fans, manager and the club,“ the statement details some fairly stank behaviour on Gallas’s part.

Miserable about being at Chelsea, Gallas vowed to score own goals if sent out on the pitch or get himself sent off. Chelsea also claim he refused to play in last season’s FA cup semi-final against Liverpool.

wayne rooney can read!


Thought he could only score goals, swear like a scurvy-infected sailor and sleep with 80-year-old prostitutes on his downtime? You thought wrong, dear friends.

With the recent release of his autobiography, “My Story So Far”, Mr. Rooney is now an accomplished author.

(Take that all you useless talented non-prostitute-visiting writers trying to get a book deal!)

With the help of ghostwriter (okay, the real author), Hunter Davies, this is the first book in a five book deal for Rooney.

It’s good to know there’s a career option open for him if the whole footy thing doesn’t pan out. 

Not everyone is behind the new scribe: Rooney’s former manager David Moyes (Everton) has threatened to sue over some of the things Rooney says in the book, in particular, that he “forced” Rooney out of the club.

In keeping with our respect for international, local and outer space holidays, religious, public or otherwise, Kickette is “celebrating” Labour Day by not working.

See you Tuesday!

Preach On, Lady Victoria


Oh, waiting for the release of this book is worse than Christmas when you’ve been good all year.

We’re refusing to put on any more clothes until Victoria Beckham’s “That Extra Half An Inch – Hair, Heels and Everything In Between” is released.

In fact, without her words of wisdom about skinny jeans and wedge heels, it’s just too risky to leave the house.

Until October 30, we’ll make due with the advance blurbs:

“I was never the six-foot tall pin-up. I’ve always been the girl next door who got lucky.”

Have truer words ever been spoken?

“I’ve come a long way in the last 10 years, but this book isn’t my attempt to tell you what or what not to do. It’s just to share some of what I’ve learned.”


“I’ve always been a girls’ girl. And I know from experience that making the very best of yourself is something any woman can do.”

Zzz: Abbey & Crouchy


Let it be said: Abi whatsyerface and Peter “tall and lanky” Crouch, we don’t care if you’re a couple or not.


In most instances, we here at Kickette are happy to be the first to jump on the “are they/aren’t they” bandwagon of endless discussion, speculation and analysing of body language from paparazzi photos of footballers and their gals, but not in this case.

We don’t like Abi Clancy.

No, we don’t know why.
