Image: Inter Leaning Tumblr.

This photo of England NT manager, Fabio Capello, in his prime has reinvigorated our playful sides.

That’s right, it’s MTC time!

First, pleaseĀ read the rules. Then review your options:

A) Barcelona’s Pep Guardiola then + Chelsea’s Andre Villas-Boas now


B) England’s Fabio Capello then + Real Madrid’s Jose Mourinho now


C) Liverpool’s Kenny Dalglish then + Manchester City’s Roberto Mancini now


Remember: you only get your way with one of our three offerings.

    Btw Kickette I am taking option A, half of option B, sorry these three I can't pick out of them, BUT I know against the rules though :( .

    Anyway, I chose my Mourinho anytime anyday option B, sorry villas I love you, Pep I love him now more than back in the days to be honest, him Bald HAWT :) :):):):):):)

  3. emilykaldjian says:

    PEP, then or now, but spell his name correctly. Come on, Kickette! It's not as if you have dozens of international footballers' names to remember how to spell.

  4. [...] matter whether we’re waffling on about racism in football, Fabio Capello’s surprisingly attractive ab situ or certain people’s unmentionable hair, you always have something to [...]

  5. slav4mou says:

    Wow, Option A is VERY interesting (distractingly so…) I do like Pep young and sweaty but Jose is, and will always be, my one true lust. Keep these tempting contests coming Kickette!

  6. Julia says:

    Jose. Just Jose… Oh my… I'm in trouble.

    Jose. Just Jose… Oh my… I’m in trouble.

    any day of the week…………….

  9. GabSS says:

    Sooo difficult!!! I'm tored between a and c!!! Pep or Mancini???!!! Ahhhh!! Decisions, decisions!! Fine, I've made my decision A) but I really think Pep and Mancini in the same option would have been de perfect choice!!

  10. Julia says:

    I can't do A. Barca and Chelsea would give me hives. There is a lot of good looks in B, but I can't get over knowing what Capello looks like now, and am worried Mou has to be called the "special one" in bed.

    I'm thinking C because King Kenny was young and athletic, but Mancini is irresistible. Something about Roberto I cannot pass up.

  11. Catie2838 says:

    A! I will pretty much go for anything involving Villas-Boas ;)

  12. ala says:

    Definitely A ! Both are intelligent, classy and flaming hot (especially when they're giving gestures on the side of the pitch)..
    Dear Kickette, you should post "Managers Edition" more often.. Please?

  13. littlegreenpea says:

    that's what capello looked like when he was younger?! …. *drool*
    although the idea of fabio capello is tempting, I would be blind if I didn't choose option A. I mean, the reasons are obvious!!

  14. hadley says:

    Pep and Andre! They're both incredibly attractive, then and now.

  15. savannah says:

    option B but seeing Fabio Capello looking hot kinda freaks me out. not in a good way.

  16. Alyssa says:

    I passionately hate Pep Guardiola but OH DEAR GOD ANDRE VILLAS BOAS IS HOT! Maybe Pep would be too fake 'polite' to interrupt and I could just have Andre ;)

  17. Buffy says:

    BBBBB! Mou still looks good!

  18. Anita says:

    option A!! AVB is soo hot, and young pep looks really cute :)

  19. TFBlovesArsenal says:

    Option B for sure. Nothing wrong with the other options, but Capello was an absolute fox back in the day. Sorry, Andre!

  20. Americus Killaponius says:

    A. A. A. AVB is hot so throw in a younger version of a manager and its a done deal.

  21. B – but just Jose!

  22. xoWinnie says:

    Pep and Villas-Boas–HOT DAMN!

    sorry Mou…i know where my loyalties lie,
    but this is solely a matter of the loins.

  23. PepaCandela says:

    Option A, no question.

    Pep looks better now, but anyone who could make the 90's Spain kit look good deserves my vote.

    • Kristina says:

      I must say that they chose a unfortunate picture of Pep from then. For christ sake, the guy actually went down the catwalk once:). There are way better pictures. But he looks better now, I absolutely agree.

    • Sarah, Madrid says:

      Thumbs up for this comment, that jersey awful, I would have liked if they shared a broromance picture of him with Raul though,

  24. blitzenTO says:

    A all the way for me! I'll take Pep then, now, or at any time of his choosing. Gorgeous, intelligent, classy. LOVE.

    AVB is pretty darn hot too, I must admit, so I'm happy with the A option all around!

  25. IrishBlue says:

    Option A! Both are delicious………..but Capello? Hot. Except the belly button. Sorry!

  26. JaneSpotting says:

    Oh I like this game..cannot chose..cannot chose…adore Special One always.

    but oh..Capello, I had no idea. he was downright foxy in his prime

  27. FootyCookie says:

    i'd have to go with Option B because i just can't resist young Capello.

    and mad Mou would be mad good i am just sayin'.

  28. April says:

    A. A. A. A. A…. A! Although, I'd have to ask that Pep take care of some of that forest of hair on his body… I don't need a hairless man, but that is a bit more than I think I can handle. Oh well.. more time spent on AVB then :)

    • Kristina says:

      lol! I think he shaves nowadays:). If you look at pictures from their training sessions it appears as if he takes better care of that detail now.

      • April says:

        HA! I got thumbs-downed for that comment… I'll let those folks take on Pep's manhair and I'll tackle AVB :)

  29. Miss Lampard says:

    I love Andre and Pep both..Andre is so HoT, but Pep is very sweet and kind. I met him last Saturday when he was in Brescia, I was walking in the centre of the city with my friends and I suddenly saw him, I stopped him and I asked for a photo with him, he was very kind to accept so gladly…He's such a sweet-hot man too.

  30. Agnes Wonka says:

    I'll take Option B. Fabio Capello was very good looking and Mou is now. Best of past and present :)

  31. FootyGirl says:

    Option A. Look how hot Guardiola grew up to be!

  32. Michelle says:

    Option A!!! Both are so fit!

  33. HoneyBee says:

    Option B

  34. Kat22 says:

    Option C for me!

    Does this make me weird?

    • Kat22 says:

      Can I make a suggestion? How about we're allowed to choose one from each option?

      In which case I'd have Pep, Capello and Mancini. :-D

    • chay says:

      i love that you chose C

    • Julia says:

      I picked C as well. I figure that youth is on Kenny's side, and Mancini is a silver fox.

    • GermaninLondon says:

      No! I'd take option C also – if I could shunt Kenny off to the mall and just concentrate on improving my Italian! Sorry Kenny! :-)
      How about a Managers/Players Query: Mourinho & Cristiano; Mancini & Ozil; Pep & Torres?

  35. Kristina says:

    Option A! Pep Then, Now and Forever! Andre is a bonus.

  36. Laura says:

    A! Definitely A!

  37. Lauren_BCN says:

    I will take Pep now even if you put him in a group with Harry Redknapp :-) )) No offence to Harry's fans ;-)

  38. xbabyshakesx says:

    Option B because both men are MAD! ^^ well one more than the other but yeah

  39. Alia says:

    Option A!! although i have a thing for Mou, Villas-Boas sealed the deal

  40. earidurt says:

    hmmmmm….i'd choose option B…..i would have gone for option A because andre is hot as &^%$ but i prefer pep now rather than then…..sooooo option B. who knew capello was such a stud?!! damn.
