The Finest Five 4.0: Game On
David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Freddie Ljungberg, Thierry Henry, Adrian Mutu
For those unfamiliar, the above gentlemen had the distinguished honour of being on our first Finest Five list. Oh yes, in 2007, these were the “most wanted” at Kickette Towers. Not too shabby, huh?
As time passed, hairlines receded, beards grew, and most of these men moved on over to the less volatile, more distinguished, Hot Hall of Fame list.
(For those unfamiliar, the Finest Five is an ‘of the moment’ list. The Hot HOF is a permanent placement; a recognition of life-long beauty. The F5 is ever-changing, depending on our mood, or a man’s commitment (or not) to base layers.)
But enough about the past. We’ve been harping on about revising the F5 List for some time, and we’re sure some of you lost hope that it would come to fruition. Well today is the day, dear readers. And this time around, we’re doing things differently. We’re involving you.
Get your Harrods sale elbows at the ready, Kickettes. This could get messy.
We’ve not gone totally insane, mind you: we have created an edited short-list of
teneleven, (we changed our minds) of our current top crushes. You decide which five get the prize. This is a lot of trust we’re handing over to you, girls (and some boys). Make us proud.
- We’ll be starting later today, posting one dynamic duo a day for the next five days for you to vote on.
- Voting will be open until 5am GMT/Midnight EST on Friday, 23 April.
- Only one of the footballers in each offered pairing will be included in the Finest Five 4.0 list. You are responsible for which one makes the cut. We know you will make good choices, dear readers.
- The new Finest Five list will be revealed on Monday the 26th.
