The Elite XI: Sizzling Strikers

image

Hallelujah, it’s the start of the season. 

Time to play Football Manager, Kickette-style, and it’s a true fantasy league we’re building: the hottest team to ever grace the pitch.

Team affiliations have no relevance here; it’s all about creating a supremely talented universal force of pretty that wins games with ease, skyrockets to the top of the table and battles against the evils of the unattractive at the same time. 

We’ll be making our men-as-objects-selects every Friday at irregular intervals in our quest to create the Elite Eleven for the 2008/09 season.  We’ve included a few above to get you in the mood, but there are so many to choose from it’s not going to be easy.

Enough chit chat: tell us who you fancy as the hottest striker out there.

UPDATE: We’re going with a 4-4-2 formation, and you’re free to nominate any hot striker you see fit for the task.

FYI, We’re open to suggestions from our always astute and foxy readers:
- Would you like us to have both an EPL Elite IX and a ROW Elite crew, or just one universally sexy squad?
- Should we follow the much discussed 6 + 5 rule?
- Do we stick to the standard five subs, or have a few back up hotties per position?
- or, should we just clone Iker Casillas and put him in every position and call it a day? Do tell.

  2. Paris says:

    FERNANDO TORRES for striker of course!!

  3. P says:

    I'd say TORRES as one of the strikers although the cloning-Iker option is tempting.

  4. Frances0601 says:

    Torres, Torres!!!

  5. Blondie says:

    Torres For Striker =D

  6. Aianna (Mrs. Jiménez Silva) says:

    Cristiano (if he belongs here), Nando *sigh*, Thierry and Berba. Or maybe we can just clone Iker.

  7. EmmaBung says:

    01. Peter Crouch 02. Andriy Shevchenko 03. Robbie Keane 04. Salomon Kalou Banana Bung

  10. Becca says:

    Well i deffinatley have to say Fernando Torres. but maybe Roque aswell?
    And i think only 5 subs aswell.
    Midfield is gonna be a hjard choice!

  11. aristeia says:

    Nando, David Villa, Titi and Luca Toni. Wait, lol… do I only have one vote? ;)

  12. dos santos girl says:

    oh my goodness, i always wanted to play football manager! ha ha.

  13. louisquatorze says:

    Roque. The world needs no more. (Fine, Thierry can come too.)

  14. Malin ("MrsFern says:

    I'm a 4-1-4-1, so my one and only iiis… well is anyone suprised? Fernando Torres. I got aroused just by typing it. I'll do it again: Fernando Torres. Grrr…

  16. Dreamgirl says:

    Obviously Torres for striker (although if there is a spare Iker I’ll have one please)

  17. SpaceCowgirl says:

    Iker Casillas…. in every position… oh my dirty mind! But to the task at hand: I vote we only have one universally sexy squad, that way we get the best in one team. No 6+5 rule. And only 5 subs, this is supposed to be an elite after all. As for the strikers – Roque and Torres, no question.

  18. mindycc says:

    I'd love to see only one team – the best of the best if you will. Marco Borriello!!

  19. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Roque and Thierry if we're talking strikers…

  20. The Fourth Official says:

    Roque. That is all.

  21. popkheetza says:

    Build a cloning machine and make 16 Ikers. 11 + 5 subs and one for me to keep him in a shoebox and feed him sugar cubes.

  22. Avenath says:

    Torres for the hottest striker. But, i'll put down Roque and Torres as the hottest strike partnership EVER!

  23. LoveLamps says:

    EPL Elite XI and Row XI. DO IT NOW and PUT FRANK in it!

  24. Being a huge fan of Henry, I am glad to see his pic on the striker’s list! I am deeply in love with every single piece of information you post here. Will be back often to read more updates!

  25. suzie says:

    has to be nando and my 1st baller crush totti( i think he counts as a striker). All for cloning iker though, just make sure there’s enough for everyone.

  26. Susanna says:

    Like there’s a choice. Torres. Not to sure who else, Titi maybe.

  27. Jen says:

    TORRES :D who else? He’s unbeatable <3</p>

  28. michelle says:

    nando! <3<3</p>

  29. Elisa says:

    David Villa – Maravilla

  30. Blondie says:

    Torres !!!

  31. AJ says:

    Please, do not begin a discussion of hot strikers without mention of the sublime Luca Toni…so what if his play has been sub-par as of late? Have you seen those eyes?  Those abs? Those Arms?
    You may feel free to clone Iker for the rest of the team.

  32. lilmisstorres says:

    Torres for striker! and why has nobody mentioned the lovely David Villa! If your going for 4-4-2 what better partnership could there be? hot and talented <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  33. Cherry says:

    Fernando Torres is number one. Roque Santa Cruz is a close second. Can’t get any prettier than those two.

  34. TKP says:

    Torres!
    Shevchenko!

  35. jenni442 says:

    Nuno Gomes!  I forgot Nuno Gomes!  Possibly the prettiest man in the universe!!!

  36. jenni442 says:

    Sorry, I forgot somebody!  How could I forget Luca Toni of Bayern Munich, one of the handsomest men on the planet?  (Maybe because he’s injured.)

  37. jenni442 says:

    OK, I’m not going to fool around.  Go with as many subs as possible in order to get the longest list.  (You’re going to post photos, right?)  Here’s my list of strikers.  These guys ARE the best-looking out there.  (I looked at national teams mostly, plus all the Spanish ones.)

    Roque Santa Cruz (#1 for sure), Fernando Torres (close second), Dimitar Berbatov (why nobody mentioned him????)  Then, has anyone not seen RADAMEL FALCAO GARCIA of the Colombian National Team????  (faints)  He plays for River Plate in Argentina.  And what about Sergio Kun Aguero of the Argentine NT?  He’s gorgeous!!!  And Ezequiel Lavezzi who plays for Napoli.  Then we’ve got Raul, Fernando Llorente of Athletic Bilbao, Bojan Krkic of Barcelona, Jonathan Soriano of Espanyol, and Oscar Trejo, another Argentine, but he plays for Mallorca.

    Oh my, I can’t wait for the midfielders. (rubs hands)

  38. Jane says:

    Lets go Crouchie for striker!

  39. hooliganette says:

    Cloning Iker would be ideal but alas if I must make a decision without doing that then hands down my vote is for Michael Owen, love the local flavor and Robbie Keane who is too freaking beautiful.  Little sprity Irish goodness.  Subs are Torres and Andriy Shevy…so fine.  PS…think we should split it up EPL and ROW indepently.  Give the Englishmen a solid chance.

  40. Anoniempje says:

    Fernando Torres!
    Its nothing but reasonable……

  41. Helena Grech says:

    Iker goal keeper, fernando torres for striker!!!

  42. rummy says:

    um….
    Strikers: Torres, no question, partnered with Santa Cruz (mmmm yummy sentence)

  43. sam says:

    suggest go for EPL and Universal (incl EPL) – that way we can do a country comparison in the latter team as well.
    My nominations for EPL – Torres and for Universal – Luca Toni

  44. DebC says:

    Fernando will always get my vote. Iker for goalkeeper. Ramos and Bocanegra as defenders. And I vote for some backup hotties for each position. The Belgium Olympic squad had some sweet looking players.

  45. Gabi says:

    I nom(inate) Andy Keogh

  46. ibra honey says:

    One univesally sexy squad.
    NO 6+5 RULE. (i noticed this weekend no one followed it, can anyone explain it)
    and as many subs as possible. God knows there are enough hot ballers out there!

    FOR STRIKER:

    ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC
    andriy shevchenko
    Nando
    Toni
    david villa

    sorry. i said there are too many.

  47. ST says:

    - one universally sexy squad
    - no 6+5 rule
    - 5 subs

    and then Fernando Torres + Roque

  48. Sarah says:

    torres for me. henry as a backup.

  49. ap says:

    Torres x 2 for striker!

    and i vote one team only, no 6+5, with 5 subs!

  50. truly_thata says:

    I’ll choice the last option. Yes…..Clone Iker and share to us; that’s the best idea.

  51. Rraawr! says:

    Iker Casillas fo goalkeeper of course. Adrian Mutu and Fernando Torres for striker.

    Yummy!

  52. fernando torres for striker.

  53. Semi Charmed says:

    I have a question and a request. Once they are elected to be on our squad, do they get paid? If so I elect Mutu, he might need it.

    Oh and I request that no base layers be allowed, and possibly no shirts at all. We can just use the chocolate from the fountain in the pub to paint their numbers on them!

  54. Roxy says:

    Why do I get the feeling this is pretty much going to be the Spanish NT? XD

    I’m in favor of the Nando motion.

  55. sina says:

    Fernando Torres for striker, too

  56. Lenina says:

    Owen Hargreaves for midfield please! xx

  57. allie says:

    Iker Casillas 4 keeper…. but carlo cudicini for back up!! wink xx

  58. Ishita says:

    FERNANDO TORRES!!!
    for striker… x

    and no guesses on

  59. Forever Torres says:

    Clone Fernando x

  60. Alexabella says:

    I totally think Alexandre Pato should be there!!!!he is too cute!!And then Torres of course and then Ronaldinho(just kidding)

  61. QUE VIVA ESPANA says:

    Fernando Torres first ofcourse and then Roman Pavlychenko and Bojan :)

  62. kiwiii says:

    I say definitely TORRES…

  63. eRe says:

    Nando. Or better multiplied Nando ;-)

  64. christina says:

    i think there should be an england and a ROW team. would work easier and would get more hot guys on the list :D my picks would be roque santa cruz, nuno gomes, and nando torres.

  65. cocomero says:

    Torres and Thierry up front. oh yess… (breaking out in sweat).

  66. lissette13 says:

    We must make the whole team with replacements and everything they need to be a Kickette National Team Of Hotness. I want my hotties with replacements ok, so I wont have to suffer when a hot baller is out. Lets start with my official sponsorship of The Kickette National Team Of Hotness

  67. diziet says:

    ok. i vote we forget the 6+5 rule and make it a pure meritocracy of hotness. Keep to 5 subs as well, we don't want the whole thing to turn into a meaningless pre-season friendly with 25 substitutions per team… either you're hot enough or you ain't, y'know?! PS sign me up for one of the Iker clones, too. If nothing else, he can do my hoovering. Naked.

  68. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Is it to late for my vote?? The hottest/manly stricker Roque Santa Cruz. Doesn't matter who is up front with him because I'll only see him.

  69. autumnmaple101 says:

    We definitely must have an EPL Elite XI! Aww as tempting as it is to have an Iker XI, it's always important to have variety…:P Roque hands down as the hottest striker in town

  70. wanniemelon says:

    nandooooooooo!! and owen 8D

  71. xXFernandoXx says:

    Well, Fernando(obviously – emphasis on my name!) and Shevchenko from his scoring days

  72. LynxKitten says:

    Klose and Poldi :)

  73. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbe says:

    I'm going with Fernando Torres but that was pretty obvious! I wouldn't mind cloning Casillas though! If you do, can I have one? :)

  74. Alexandra Pato says:

    yeah, i'll just go w/ F. Torres

  75. Cesc's lil bird says:

    I think we should have an EPL elite and ROW elite. And no 6+5 rule. Strikers for EPL: Fernando and van Persie (yes the Arsenal bit is probably bias but it's the one time a Utd supporter can't retaliate). ROW strikers: so many to choose from! I choose David Villa and Alberto Gilardino

  76. hooligan573 says:

    If it's not EPL exclusive then Villa and Robbie Keane. If we break EPL and ROW up then Robbie Keane and Michael Owen. Subs….Torres and Andriy Shevchenko.

  77. SB (Mrs.MO) says:

    Roque and Owen, please

  78. carly says:

    God, TFO, you got the words out of my mouth. Yes, Roque. And I have no further opinions on the post.

  79. carly says:

    God, TFO, you got the words out of my mouth. Yes, Roque. And I have no further opinions on the post.

  80. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    Fernando Torres and Luca Toni!

  81. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Roque gets my vote for hottest striker. Love this idea btw.

  82. TammyV says:

    Briliant! I have been advocating this idea forever now and finally to fulfillment! A wonderful moment. – Would you like us to have both an EPL Elite IX and a ROW Elite crew, or just one universally sexy squad? two teams – Should we follow the much discussed 6 + 5 rule? no..stupid rule – Do we stick to the standard five subs, or have a few back up hotties per position? five subs – or, should we just clone Iker Casillas and put him in every position and call it a day? Do tell. ys please, where do I order my own.

  83. LoveLamps says:

    Hot strikers in the EPL? RvP is hot, Michael Owen is cute, and Sheva is a doll. Even Crouchie has his moments. My vote is for Robin van Persie for EPL hot striker. If we open it to all leagues, I must give it up for Adrian MUTU!

  84. Rusty, aka Frau Clem says:

    santa cruz roques my world ;)

  85. striker says:

    Hmmm…. Michael Owen and Torres up front. Berbatov and Henry on the bench.

  86. g.R.a.C.e says:

    the hotest striker definitely Torres n Villa. . gotta love em up front.. yumm. . lol

  87. xhanna08x says:

    I’d got for Torres as striker! He is soo hot! x

  88. xhanna08x says:

    I’d got for Torres as striker! He is soo hot! x

  89. *ele* says:

    I totally think nando and stop!!!

  90. emma says:

    Skip the 6+5 rule, we want the hottest team possible with players from all over the world! five subs are enough, we want the hottest of the hottest, no “if-i-have-to” and i think it’s safe to say that cas has no rivals for the goaliepos.

  91. Aurynn says:

    I say go for the hotness but do keep to the 5 subs. My vote for striker goes to Fernando Torres. Rauw. Though Roque can sub at striker for me anyday. As for the Iker-clones: where can I get one for myself?

  92. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    Fernando Torres and Luca Toni!

  93. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Roque gets my vote for hottest striker. Love this idea btw.

  94. TammyV says:

  95. Moongirl says:

    I think a EPL and ROW XI is a brilliant idea and id go with RvP as my Prem striker and the delicious Ruud as my ROW one!

  96. Sarah says:

    That’s punny Rusty! ;) NO NO NO to the 6 + 5 rule! Stupid, stupid idea. (I’m sure you would expect nothing less from an Arsenal fan, haha.)

  97. sweet_dreamz says:

    I think the EPL Hottest XI and the ROW XI would be a good idea, noooooooooo on 6+5 and yes to backups

  98. FootballerChick43 - "Mrs.Ballack" says:

    I think we should do one of both teams. I mean, theres just too many good looking players to lump them into the same category. And on the 6+5 rule, I can’t give an opinion – I can’t wrap my head around this idea. I say we stick with the standard five subs as well. And on cloning Iker, I’m all for it. What formation are we using? 4-4-2? If so, my two would be Roque Santa Cruz and Fernando Torres.

  99. lose that girl says:

    Okay, I know that I’m REALLY late on this one but for what it’s worth, I’m nominating Berba.
