The Sizzle Query: Mixed Doubles

We would never ask you to do something we’re not prepared to do ourselves. And while this is an obvious opportunity for all of us to waffle on about what we would do if presented with not one, but two, cute boys and a large bucket of peanut butter, it’s not compulsory to sign up to our pervy peculiar brand of eccentricity.

Why not tell us which twin out of this carefully curated selection you prefer? Maybe you’d like to explore why the cuteness quotient is always greater than the sum of its parts when twin players are involved.

Or, for those of you who are as bad (and in some cases, far worse than we are) just tell us which package you’d pick and how many weeks you’d need to fully ‘explore’ all facets of their personalities.

Denial is, after all, futile.

Gabriel and Michael Farfan – Philadelphia Union

Michael is the reserved one, Gabe is more expressive according to Union coach John Hackworth. Useful to know. Image via


Lars & Sven Bender – Bayer Leverkusen & Borussia Dortmund (respectively)

Alarmingly innocent looking. In fact, we’re not sure we could bring ourselves to break them. We reserve the right to have a go, though. Image via tumblr.


Fabio & Rafael Da Silva – Manchester United

Possibly the goofiest pair in the list, but cute beyond compare and they can cook too!


We can’t make a decision. We’ll probably have them all.

    It is only because of soccer that I know Swedish men are hot. So yeah… bring on them Olssons.

  2. Kristina says:

    Yess! I wondered when Martin and Marcus would appear here. They are too cute to go unnoticed. And they're Swedish which makes it even better ;) ! I hope Martin gets more time in the Swedish NT. Obviously I pick them.

    I like the seriousness of the Farfan brothers also.

  3. Allison says:

    I'll take Couple #1 please. With Jose & Juanmi as runners-up.

  4. Jenni says:

    I like the first two pairs. The blond ones look about fourteen and like they were born in the 1940s, and the Man U twins are ugly Man U players. Ugh.

    Kickette, have you not realized that (almost, I'm sure there's one odd one out) all twins are amazingly adorable/attractive/sexy? HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO DECIDE?!

  12. MissyV says:

  13. Mrs Arteta says:

    Wow! The Olssons are hot!

  14. kim says:

    I'll add the Callejon twins who are my favorites.…

    • Utd Girl says:

      I completely agree! I had no idea there were two of them!!!

      However, since I love Man Utd, I have to choose my favorite twins Fabio and Rafael. Although, the Olssons are very hot as well!
