The Sizzle Query: Pretty. The Pathetic Aesthetic?

During a particularly heavy planning session in the Kickette office last night, it came to our attention that one of our staffers has been hiding an odd kind of crush from the rest of the group.
For the general purposes of fun and mockery, we set about her like coyotes on a cadaver, until she fessed up.

She likes defenders. You know, those bulky guys who don’t get past the halfway line too often, preferring instead to hang-out in the dingy environs of the 18-yard box, taking out anyone with the temerity to try and score a goal.
Others may call them fugly. We prefer anti-pretty.
So, Kickettes. Are you a secret back-line boy aficionado? Is a willingness to place one’s face into the path of a rapidly approaching cleat/ball/knee more appealing to you than your typical twinkle-toed striker? Why?
And while we’re on the subject, are any of you harbouring any other ‘odd’ lusty feelings? Perhaps you had a kinky dream about Carlos Tevez, and while you realise how disturbing it was, you still feel a little fizzy when you see photos of him on the golf course?
Tell us everything, dear readers. Consider it cathartic.
