Photo Call: Liverpool FC’s Holiday Party

Perhaps you’re wondering why we’ve yet to put up the photos of the Liverpool “80s themed” Christmas party. 

That’s because they don’t exist.  We’ve been dealing with the disappointment by learning Photoshop so we can super-impose a pair of silver glitter leg warmers on Xabi Alonso and give Stephen Gerrard a cute chin dimple with a side of shoulder pads.

Instead of the glorious 80s decade, the Liverpool party theme seems to have been “safe and boring and slightly unattractive”. 

The shindig was held in Liverpool at Circo in the Albert Docks and we’ve attached a few images for your viewing displeasure.  If you’re short on time and/or attention span, just click through to Fernando Torres’ lavender jumper. If you squint hard enough, you can almost pretend he’s wearing a studded tie-dyed string vest.

    Lol, that’s so funny, Fourth Official! Does anybody have ANYTHING at all about the Arsenal Christmas party? Did they even have one? Ofcourse they did; they’re ‘ballers. But the apparent lack of anything Arsenal leads me to believe it was on some secret far away land… I mean i’ve seen Chelsea and Liverpool and God knows we’ve all seen Utd’s but why are there no Arsenal ones. I’ve even seen West Ham’s!! And as an Arsenal supporter, I’m just dying to see sexy lil Cescy Fabulous…

    Cesc’s Lil Bird:  This is from Telegraph online on December 22, re Arsenal’s Christmas party.  (I had to read it twice to be sure it wasn’t some blogger’s joke):

    “Wenger, meanwhile, revealed that his players have been unable to hold a Christmas party this winter. While he refused to criticise such functions in the week Manchester United youngster Jonny Evans was arrested following allegations of rape at the club’s Christmas bash, Wenger appeared relieved that the busy programme prevented such revelries.  Arsenal’s players did attend one party, as Wenger revealed, and the strongest beverage on offer was lemonade. “The players not at Blackburn went to the Junior Gunners party, as they do every year. Then they went on a hospital visit on Monday afternoon.“

    Well, I think I’ll just pretend I never saw that one. Can someone please do me the tiny little favor of kicking that girl out of the country? Use your sharpest heals. Thank you.

    Oh, that was me being bitter, right? How, ahem, silly of me. I supposed to think that she’s pretty, isn’t it so?

  5. Malin says:

    Lol, when I’ve seen loads of them but I can’t find Olalla among the pics posted here. Its just Nando with his horrible jumper, isn’t it?

  6. Kate says:

    I have a pic of Nando with his gf…will upload when I have a chance! (I’m at work right now…shhh….)

  7. Malin says:

    Angie: Olalla? Where in that pic did you find her? Have I missed something? Is there more pictures somewhere?

  8. The Fourth Official says:

    Ugliest team?  Come on, Brandy, I’m a Man United supporter, and even *I* think that Nando is cute as a button.  And Harry Kewell . . . confidentially, he makes my bosoms tingle.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    I Swear I Saw So,e Pics, Of Gerard As A Punk :s
    I Dunno Lol
    Wht Has Nando Done to His Hair :S

  10. Angie says:

    Lol, yeah….I don’t see anyone in 80’S theme…lame!

    Yeah, I have Olalla’s pics.

    Here: HQ’s

  11. brandy says:

    I don’t get where the 80s came in at all in this one… not an ounce of it anywhere. Except on Alex with those awful blue tingly leggings. That would explain a lot if she was trying to be 80s like the invite said. Imagine entering that party and realizing you didn’t get the memo that the 80s theme was out a la Bridget Jones.

    I will say this though: this is the ugliset team on the planet. Whole lotta UGLY in those pics. I may never recover.

  12. Angie says:

    Nando’s outfit is just…ew! Olalla’s oufit looks better.

  13. Cate says:

    AHA! See! Man U is no good.

  14. tammyv says:

    DAMN YOU RIO!!!!!  I blame him and his pre-announced diaster. You know they were like, “Dudes, we can totally be cooler and not get int trouble.“  With will go borning and that will show them

  16. Malin says:

    Lol, right, quite dissappointing that they didn’t wear fancy dress, but I can’t help it, I get all gigly watching Nando no matter what he wears. Oh that cute boy… Could have done with a slightly, ahem, different shade of jumper though… <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  17. amanda says:

    Thanks for the pics, Kate! Nagore definitely has a baby bump!

    Crouch does look like he is wearing a bit of blue eyeshadow! What’s up with that?!?

  18. Amelie says:

    is crouchie wearing eye shadow?

    zoom in!

  19. Kate says:

    Xabi was there!  Here are two pics: (I hope the links work…)



    You can definitely see Nagore’s growing belly!

  20. Anja says:

    I think Stevie had the best outfit… I can’t help myself, but those white shoes are rockin’!

  21. amanda says:

    No Xabi?!?

    Nando and Stevie – OY!!

  22. dani says:

    Fernando torres looks gud in anything he wears…
    and i have to admit stevie looks hot aswell ….
    but ryan babel.. hes goin to a party and he looks like his dog has just been run over.. 3 words CHEER UP RYAN!

  23. Cate says:

    (not that thats how I spent my xmas *shifty eye*)

    LOL! : P

    Nagore looks shit in these photos. Like, usually I think she looks good, but for some reason I’m not feeling the way she put up her hair and the make-up and, just, no. No. And babies are not attractive. Ew. Babies. >.>

    I’m with you, Robin. But we may or may not be biased. : P

  24. linz says:

    not a huge stevie fan, but i enjoyed his looks this time, haha

  25. <3 JT says:

  26. mary says:

  27. j says:

    Fern looks cute….but they all look miserable. SMILE people!

  28. Becca x says:

    I Like Gerrard Outift!
    I Think It Looks Well Nice :D

    I Zoomed In On Crouch And It Does Look Like Hes Got Some Eye Makeup Going On There!! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />

  29. kickette says:

    sorry… we had xabi in h/r but neglected to upload him, poor fine chappie. Have updated now!

  30. Lisa says:

    I think Stevie and Fern look hot, hot, hot.  I want them!

  31. paris says:

    I think Steven Gerrard and Fernando torres look so cute, and I really like stevie’s trainers they suit his outfit. I love Abbey’s dress. I zoomed in crouch does look like he is wearing eye shadow!!

  32. Elise says:

    I think they all look nice, but not everyone looks happy, do they?  And those damned white shoes Stevie is wearing!!  Frank has them, too, and I just loathe them.  I don’t care that they’re D&G;.  They’re still white and still wrong.

  33. freddiegirl says:

    I think Fern looks cute..smile

  34. Robin says:

    Well I have a completely different opinion. I think it looks classy. And I like Torres’ clothing. If he’d worn a black or grey sweater he’d look like a mortician, but the lavender is rather nice. And very English. How proper of the boy. And I bet it’s cashmere. Mmmm. Cashmere. All the better for snuggling.
    All this rather makes Alex’ bright blue sparkly tights look rather outre, non?

  35. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    What a huge disapointment!!!
    Was really looking forward to these pictures, but all we got is a few stroppy faced pictures of the team looking like they’d rather be tucked up in bed with a hot water bottle, watching Wizard of Oz and drowning in chocolate wrappers (not that thats how I spent my xmas *shifty eye*)

    Oh well lets hope they make up for it next year!

  36. carly says:

    Yuck @ Torres’ trousers…and sweater, I might as well add.

    Abbey looks, as usual, fantastic.

  37. The Fourth Official says:

    Wow, the whole thing looks like one big downer, doesn’t it?  Sort of sums up the mood of the season so far for LFC, no?  You’d think Rafa could have at least jumped up on a table, brandished a bottle of Cristal, and led the boys in a chorus of B
