Sizzle Query: Daniel De Ridder v Niko Kranjcar

imageimage

Let’s take a moment to further our ballers as objects philosophy/life strategy by comparing Birmingham City’s Daniel de Ridder with Portsmouth’s Niko Kranjcar.

Both are as sweet as those lovely little French Fancy cakes at M&S, of which we have developed a severe and debhilitating addiction to. However, unlike these diabetic coma-inducing cakes of sucrose and butter cream goodness, lusting after these ballers leaves us with zero apres-guilt.  It’s a win-win, frankly.

Who do you like better, Kickettes?

Our choice after the jump.

We choose Daniel.  Because he chose to take off his shirt and get in the ocean.  Possibly for cash. That’s our kind of guy. 

However, if anyone can provide photographic proof that Mr. Kranjcar is willing to do the same, we will reconsider, as he is also rather delish, no?

    Daniel has a relationship with a dutch tv-presenter named Tatum. She is nine years older than he is and has a 5 year old daughter from a previous marriage with a famous dutch radio dj.

  2. I’d like to take off danieles shirt too : )

    Hi Mrs Larsson!

    Saw ur hubby being interviewed after the Liverpool game on Saturday and the thing that struck me most about him was the vividness of his eyes!!

  4. Jingle says:

    Seriously, I can’t believe there’s any contest.  Niko is the fittest player I’ve seen for ages, and he’s such a cutie!  He’s even usurped Iker Casillas in my affections lol.  I’m so watching the FA Cup final :D

  5. mrs larsson says:

    GUYS GUYS GUYS.
    OK DE RIDDER IS JUST THE STARTER AT BIRMINGHAM
    WE ALSO HAVE SEBASTIAN LARSSON(WHO IS MINE) AND STEPHEN KELLY.
    HAVE A LOOK <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
    P.S – IF ANYONE FINDS A TOPLESS PIC OF EITHER LET ME KNOW.

  6. SimplyTrish says:

    David Copperfield!  (Sorry, I have taken to using ficticious characters as curses…)  That photo is insane!

    However, I am still going with Niko.  Daniel just looks too waxed and shiny like a Ken doll for my liking.  It’s a little off-putting.

  7. brandy says:

    Ummm, Ms Kickette I think he took off more than his shirt for that ocean shot <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    I have to say neither because I feel kinda dirty looking at these boys. I’m only 31 but I feel like a school teacher peaking into the boys locker room at shower hour…. no bueno!

  8. Avenath says:

    MXA – brilliant pix!…hahahaha… <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

    Hhhhmmmm…think i’ll go for Niko, but he seems all goody-goody for me…not edgy enough…take some lessons from Nando, dear boy…Daniel’s hot, but only from the neck down…

    The winner is….Niko!!

  9. Meriam (Mrs Daniel De Ridder) says:

    Finally!

    DAN DAN DAN DAN DAN DAN DAN DAN DAN DAN

    I love that guy and am actually going to stalk him, drug him and then marry him.

    grin

    Thank you Kickette

    Also just changed the name – enough of lusting now, time to settle down tongue laugh )

  14. Moongirl says:

    Ah another wag to dispose of Offsider!!! If you speak to the girls nicely theyll prob be able to make her disappear for you (see the C & N smootchy smootchy thread!)

    Im still struggling Marmitey <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />
    BTW does ur name come from a liking of that scrummy spread by the same name or is it something way more exotic?

  15. DiorHeels says:

    Most definitely Daniel. <3 I think he is gorgeous and he plays for Birmingham who is my second favourite.</p>

  16. Mrs.Mexes says:

    Niko on the first picture…. but then there’s the second, which puts a whole new spin on things… I’m starting to think I really shouldn’t be on this site while I’m at work <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

  17. marmitey says:

    it took me three looks to see it <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/bigsurprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="big surprise" style="border:0;" />  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/bigsurprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="big surprise" style="border:0;" />  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/bigsurprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="big surprise" style="border:0;" />

  18. offsider says:

    thanx Moongirl <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    i agree – kickette needs update!! or at least to upgrade the list…there are so many hot guys next to lampard, ronaldo and co.

    only pitty corluka is bewitched with his gf…

  19. Moongirl says:

    Marmitey – i really admire you for even noticing the boat!!!

  20. marmitey says:

    has to be niko – especially now he’s got rid of his long straggly hair, and because i am a massive pompey fan.

    the perspective in the water shot of daniel is a little odd… considering he is standing, that boat is awfully close.

    P.U.P.

  21. Belle says:

    I’d go for Niko, based solely on the first pictures. Daniel looks slightly skeevy in the first picture to me for some reason. Perhaps it’s the facial fair. However, his second picture is quite well…mind blowing to say the least. I’m sure Niko has a similar cut on him and a bit more hair. So…Niko it is.

    I would like to throw a teammate of Daniel’s out there, who I recently discovered. Stephen Kelly, anyone? He’s got killer eyes and he’s Irish, so nice accent to boot.

  22. Lil' says:

    it’s ok i weigh less than de ridder …
    but after a deep comarison on wiki, Niko is taller, even it’s difficult to realize that under such a baby face there is an adult body and even if apparently he used to have loing her i would go for him,

    or a threesome as suggested by FT9FTW

  23. FT9FTW says:

    HORRAH!!! Both are older than me (Niko by a month <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />)! Forget the vote, I’m in for a threesome.

  24. Lil' says:

    ah ah Blair i did exactly the same: checkin their age on wikipedia
    and they are older than me, i could have never guessed it.
    I think Daniel has less hair than i do and weighs less than i do (i will check this on wikipedia too) so i will go for Niko even if i had never heard about him before today

    best-break-during-my-studying-day-ever
    what a relief after haveing been reading all day…

  25. dani,,Premier League says:

    daniel has to win this he got me hot under the collar

  26. Blair says:

    Welcome Aoife.  I mean really, what else is there to do at work besides looking up footballers on Wikipedia to find out if they’re legal or not. Right?

  27. Cherry says:

    Daniel de Ridder. Easy choice.

  28. Aoife says:

    Why that’s not young at all!! Sure, the hairless one is older than me. It’s all good to be crushing on them, then. :D Thanks for the info Blair.

  29. Blair says:

    WELCOME OFFSIDER!

    Daniel is 24 and Niko is 23.

  30. Moongirl says:

    Hi offsider!

    Yes totally feelin your Corluka love hes in my top 5 hot ballers – which incidentally seriously needs updating Kickette – even us Man city fans are over the Kasper thing now!

  31. Ice Princess says:

    Ooooh…can I just have both? XD They’re both seriously attractive but I’d go for Niko if I really have to choose between them. Daniel’s semi nekkie pic is hot but I like Niko’s face ^.^

    How old are they anyway? They seem a bit young-ish

  32. offsider says:

    hi…never commented anything..but i every now and then i visit this site…and finally you noticed our boys!!! niko is maybe young, but he’s great!!! cute and smart…and fantastic player..maybe too polite to do these kind of photos that this guy does:)).you can also check corluka -man city…you’ll like him… tongue wink

  33. Helen says:

    I think Niko is better looking but that is a nice photo of Daniel. How old are they both out of interest? Not that I’m in with a cat in hells’ chance! mad

  34. Moongirl says:

    Delicious though the sea picture is im afraid i have to agrre with LTG.

    They both look like boy band members!

  35. Nina says:

    I agree with The Fourth Official. It

  36. sarabee says:

    Gosh, they are youngies. I like my cakes with a bit more beef.

    At a push I would say Niko, but thats before I scrolled down!!!

    It appears that Daniel waxes down South, though,
    which makes me think of pre-pubescent boys. Yuk, yuk,double yuk.

  37. Aoife says:

    I’m gonna go for Daniel. Purely for the cuts. Never heard of him before in my life. Ride.

  38. LoveLamps says:

    Just what I needed after a run this morning Kickette!  I’ll take them both thank you.  When you dump Elen Frank, I’ll stop saying these things.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  39. Blair says:

    Niko is my vote. I always prefer the shorter hair.  Although Daniel in the ocean is an appetizing afternoon delight.

  40. tammyv says:

    Once again, in Kickette I trust..WOW. Daniel, might be young but he is legal!

  41. Oh, boy toys!!

    I wish that wave would move on.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    However, Daniel is curiously hairless.  Rather like Dr. Evil’s hairless cat.  Which is off-putting.  Makes me frown when I have more body hair than the man I’m with. 

    And I don’t care for Niko.  So, I guess I’m a no on both counts.

  42. lose that girl says:

    They both look so young!!!

    Daniel reminds me of that god-awful Zac Afron from High School Musical so I couldn’t possibly choose him!!  That leaves the other man-boy, Niko.

    Sorry but it just feels so wrong!!!
    Too old, I am.

  43. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Well neither really get me going, but I was going to choose Niko. That is until I see the second photo of Daniel!! Oh my mother of f**k!! That picture has, no lie, put the biggest grin on my face EVER!! WOW!! That is seriously, butterfly inducing, toe curling, back arching, giving me rude thoughts HOT!!!

    Oh god I need to lie down!! Good work Kickette, very very good work!!!

  44. carly says:

    None!

  45. Portia says:

    i choose Niko.

  46. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Well my tiresome work of making Daniel manlier was on topic! And I had to ask about the arm, it was freaking me out!!!

  47. LucyLu says:

    It looks like we might get one soon with the Community link at the top – fingers crossed! I know, I feel bad posting off topic… erm, what can I say to keep it on topic? Oh, I just researched Daniel on Google and yes he is definitely hotter. There. smile

  48. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Oh yeeeeeaaaahh!! I can see what you mean, thank god was really creepy otherwise.

    And yes we do need a message board, nearly all thread’s are getting taken over by our random chatter. I love it, but don’t think everyone does.

    Come on Kickette, I need somewhere to spam the world with Xabi love <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  49. LucyLu says:

    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> Aw I love this site. There should be a message board! Mrs X, that is a weird angle but after some intense scrutinising, it looks like someone’s arm coming in from the right and touching Niko’s forearm. The wobbly looking bits on top are knuckles!

  50. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    shock Just noticed in the pic of Niko, what the hell is going on with that arm??? Ooooh it’s sooo freaky!!!

  51. Rusty says:

    *snicker* thanks MXA.

    Still prefer Niko; I like his face better anyway.

  52. c9 says:

    I’m going with Niko here, I’ve lusted over him a while back before my love for Cris exploded <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    MrsXabi- That’s classic, LMAO!! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/snake.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="snake" style="border:0;" /> <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

  54. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    For those who have an issue with Daniel’s lack of hair, I have decided to help out a little. What do you think??

    http://s250.photobucket.com/albums/gg265/MrsXabi/…

  55. FootballerChick43 says:

    Yeahhhh…

    I pick the one in the third pic, yo.

  56. LucyLu says:

    Malin, stay strong! Nando is superior in every way and you know it wink

    However, I did just click on the first link to see the pic of DDR in the white tee and was pleasantly surprised… but only enough to say I prefer him to the other guy smile

  57. Pau says:

    hellooo
    well too young?? I dont think sooo!! bring it!!!
    I have to admit that I have been a fan of Niko since the world cup.. BUUUUT… Daniel

  58. And here I am beeing the odd one and enjoying the all sleek look. Hair disgusts me a wee bit. (hence me not being disturbed by Nandos obviously smooth groin)

    But that second pic. Kickette, pleeeease, do not tempt me. We all know I’m not so strong.

    “Nandodarling, where are you? I need you to take your clothes off pronto and seduce me, or I’ll start to lust after Daniel de Ridder and I don’t want that!“

  59. marmitey says:

    moongirl – it’s just the love of the spread! cheese

    pronounced mar-mite-e (as you would), however, i’ve had people say marmot-e, so a little confusion with the rodent.  mad

    anyway, back to niko and ddr…

  60. rania says:

    ok i was going to choose Niko, but the hot, wet muscular, ohhhhhhhh…….

  61. Anamarija says:

    Oh kickette, I can only say :finally you notice our great players grin
    Niko is sweet,but when I saw the second picture,ahmm….wow!!!

    BTW Niko is sweet as sugar,but Mladen Petric is just breathtaking-hot,his wife may share my opinion as he is expecting his first child…

    Take a look :

    http://www.dominikkuhn.ch/mediac/400_0/media/DSC05344.JPG

    P.S. Niko doesn’t do that kind of pics,he’s too “nice and sweet” for that,unfortunately

  62. Pink Panther says:

    I’m totally for Daniel de Ridder. That expanse of skin starting under his belly button to the top of the water is just..GUH!

    That’s all I can say.

    I still would have picked him before I saw that pic though.

    Niko’s not bad though.

  63. Erin says:

    Hmmm….both are pretty.  But neither of them has that manly hot quality that I like.  I can appreciate both, but not lusting after either one.

    My password is “father51” and that disturbs me somewhat.  lol

  64. RedGirl says:

    If I have to choose it’s got to be Niko.

    TFO are you talking about Mr. Bigglesworth? <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> Even that cat has more body hair than DDR!

  65. LucyLu says:

    Mmm not really feeling either of these guys! I think I’m too picky smile
