The Finest Five: 3.0

image

It’s the first of the month, and time to begin the second half of 2008 with an update to our Finest Five list.

Before we begin, let us remind both our newer readers and the Kickette hardcore alike that the Finest Five is an ‘of the moment’ list, not a permanent one.  A player being moved off the list doesn’t mean we no longer acknowledge his physical/facial abilities, just that we’re crushing for the moment on another.  On the other hand, The Hot HOF is a permanent list which recognizes those who have served their teams/countries well and deserve something more formal on the mantlepiece.

Click through for our latest take on the hottest men on the footie pitch.

THE FINEST FIVE

ADDITIONS

2. ROQUE SANTA CRUZ – BLACKBURN

image

The Roque-effect began to kick into high gear whilst we were prepping last week’s TTO (of which Roque won in style, btw).  We’ve mused on alternate careers for ballers before, and we’re quite certain in another life Roque was destined to be a fireman.  Strong, brave-hearted, usually shirtless.  A deep-thinking loner type who loves danger.  Owns a motorcycle. He doses himself in non-flammable baby oil before leaping through burning buildings. And so forth.

4. SERGIO RAMOS, REAL MADRID

image

Some of the gentlemen on our F5 are here for their all-around attractiveness and good nature.

Others, like The Ramos, are here for one thing and one thing only.  And it’s not exchanging hair conditioning tips, we can assure you.

A NOTE ON IKER:

Still number one, minutes, possibly even seconds away from being moved to the Hot HOF.

Just not yet. We like seeing him on top.  Hee. Also, the profile? Is there anyone in the game with a better chisel?

THE DEPARTED/BUBBLING UNDER:

Cristiano, you will return. Probably within an hour, after we refresh our memories with this standout incident.  But for now, we’ve gone a little wishy washy. You’re body is ridunkulous, we still recognize. Holla back when you’re on the pitch again and we will be listening, waiting with a large pile of laundry to wash on your abs of steel.

Lampsy, we still have love for you and your wacky fashion ways. In fact, we’ve really warmed to you over the last few months. It’s just time for us to spread our wings and move on to other options. It was nice while it lasted, our brief spring fling.

Fernando Torres: We are literally inches away from Fernando hitting the list.  The naysayers can point out the hair issues, his boy-in-a-man’s body appearance and so forth, but there has always been a quality to Nando that we love.  We adore his complexion, all 456 freckles of it.  We swoon like idiots over his stompy-face pouty pout when he’s frustrated.  Another major perk? The shy boy persona. Works a treat for us. Hang in there Fern, nearly there.

THE HOT HOF

ADDITIONS

RAUL GONZALEZ, REAL MADRID
image
Sometimes stalking, petitioning and email abusing us works. One of the most talented players out there. A great head of hair. Doe-eyes of chocolate. Museum worthy hip dips.

Makes us want to break into MOR radio showtunes of appreciation: We don’t know much, but we know we love you.

THIERRY HENRY, BARCELONA FC
imageHe’s French, he’s immaculately turned out (most of the time, anyway), and he was one of our favourite players to watch during French international games and his glory days at Arsenal.  Few ballers we know make great style seem so effortless.  Plus, there’s zee accent. Had to be done.

    Diziet, Liverpool's No. 9 is still spanish regardless of how white he is. Going off of Lamps's idea maybe it should be by league even and then do a champion's league final

  2. misslpool says:

    i agree fernando torres needs to be here now , an it suprises me steven gerrard didnt even get a mentioon ? strange

  3. Crazylittlemadam says:

    What?! No Nando?! Oh my days!

  4. emogenharris says:

    errmm….can i vote no to the height restrictions? i believe in good things coming in small packages. …and by small packages, i mean in only one sense of the word, not the other!

  5. HoneyBee says:

    Love RAUL and HENRY-they deserve their status.So hot.I'm happy for you VENICE-Raul is quite a lush and Henry is just simply delicious. Hm I remember when ROQUE first arrived in his former club Bayern Munchen and I fought he had big Spock like ears and bad complexion.He definitely looks better now,nice body definitely but not a top five material.I like the fact RAMOS is in top five(what a body).I can't function normally after watching those pics.The Ramos and the cream(hm!). I think CESC should be kicked out-cute and nice but not Top 5,not with those legs. XABI should definitely be in top five,and ranked higher.Cute face and his body is a wonderland.MXA-start a petition to Kickette-I'll sign. Interesting that nobody isn't complaining about RONALDO being kicked out of top five.Hm-obviously new slave image hasn't helped him.But I still wouldn't mind slapping his firm round slave bum and licking his thighs.And although my attraction for him has never been lower I still think it's strange to see Roque in Finest five and R out of it-don't agree! IKER-love him-totally yummy.His only flaw is the fact we don't see him shirtless enough.Naughty Iker. It's impossible to create top five that will please everyone so I think we should have FINEST FIVE FOR EVERY MONTH-it would please us and well it would really please us.

  6. LynxKitten says:

    And ugh at C Ron :(

  7. aferg1102 says:

    Fernando deserves to be on this list!

  8. mrs_Marianna_Torres says:

    Fernando NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! common kickettes!

  9. Football Diva says:

    I'm not gonna deny that C.Ron has some perfect abbs of steel working for him but Sergio Ramos! My God darling, seriously hm hm hm … you got it going on! :O Somebody help me deal with this man's gorgeous body cause it's just too much for one gal to handle.

  10. Maritza004 says:

    Kickette! when are you going to update the finest five!? please include TORRES and BOJAN!!!

  11. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Thank you so much for putting Thierry into the HOF!!!! But the Ramos??????? Ewwwww. Roque’s fine and I’m glad CRon got the boot. And Iker definitely still deserves his No. 1 spot. But please let’s replace Ramos with someone who resembles a man more than a horse… There are other torsos with nicer faces on top…

  12. lissette13 says:

    Did U kickettes knew that Roque speaks 3 different Laguages Out of spanish and english of course his speaks german sone portuguese and guarani (note guarani is a paraguayian indigenous dialect) If I’m not wrong that gives him like 20 points on the list or what. Advise to the ballers find a hobbie besides kicking the ball all the time. A Hot baller is priceless but that hotness combined with brain power is a gift from the heavens. Here is the where Roque is speaking german. Btw I don’t know german and I don’t want too Just Look at Roque omg http://es.youtube.com/watch?v=pimlJH0mS-0

  13. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbe says:

    NANDO! So close (again)! I hope next time the FF gets an overhaul, Nando gets a look in. Poor boy! Malin will have something to say abaout this though… Raul…bless! A well deserved place in the HOF! Cristiano should never again grace the FF! He has brought shame to the world of hip-dips and baller bulges! He was a blemish on the FF ever since Whoreida surfaced…in short, please keep Cristiano OFF the FF! *ducks as C-Ron lovers throw stones at Freya* Whoop to The Ramos…about time that he was on the FF! That man is pure sex :) Roque also deserves to be there too so well done to him! *hi-fives Roque* If Iker moves on to the hot HOF, can Nando make his debut appearance on the FF!? Pretty please with a cherry on top!?*smiles sweetly* Overall, impressed with the new additions and chuffed to bits with a certain Portugese tit exiting the FF! Nice one Kickette! *returns to SBA thread*

  14. LynxKitten says:

    I'll be the first to say… METZELDER! How can a man who looks like this NOT be the finest?? <img src="http://img229.imageshack.us/img229/10/375x48001034653226ac73gi7.th.jpg&quot; border="0"/> <img src="http://img229.imageshack.us/img229/2618/375x48001234525fb34qe1.th.jpg&quot; border="0"/>

  15. torres4ever says:

    Where's my Fernando?He has to be on here!

  16. Lucy says:

    And no height restrictions K – where would that leave Cescy!? No no no.

  17. Bri [Mrs. Sernando Q says:

    I'm definately liking this El Ramos up in here. Very nice, ver nice. :] Where's Nando? El Freckle is missing – sound the alarms!!

  18. temitooo says:

    C'mon kickettes, where's nando???

  19. Lucy says:

    Kickette I'm so excited! Even though you've demoted Cesc :( adding in The Ramos *swoons* and Roque and putting Raul in the HOF makes up for it. A most excellent update *thumbs up*

  20. Lucy says:

    And no height restrictions K – where would that leave Cescy!? No no no.

  21. Bri [Mrs. Sernando Queen Stalker] says:

    I’m definately liking this El Ramos up in here. Very nice, ver nice. :] Where’s Nando? El Freckle is missing – sound the alarms!!

  23. HyraJay says:

    Ahhhh Fernando deserves a spot up there. Sure the hair may seem like a problem at the moment….but eventually it won`t be..so…yellow? Oh well he`ll always be number1 in my book. :D Anddddd yessss I`m all for the height restriction!! Someones mentioned Iker not making the list if there were to be such a thing…WELL…you are incorrect…Iker is 185cm…which always makes him eligible. :)

  24. diziet says:

    mmmmmh. I'm liking *most* of this. Glad to get shot of the deep-fried Portuguese tackmeister, and it's only right and proper that the truly adorable Roque should be recognised at last (oh, pleeeeeease do not sign for Man City, pleeeeease). However, horse-faced exhibitionists don't do it for me – and I also agree with Tammy re. the lack of diversity. Although, having said that, they don't come any whiter than Liverpool's No 9 and I really don't know what else he has to do to make the cut … sob. Hmmm. Oh, and what's with the height restriction? We're not recruiting to the police here!? (police uniforms. Roque. Mmmh.)

  25. 'TorresNubianQu says:

    kickette wheres TORRES his sexyness should be up here am not a happy bunny but thank you for puttin roque in cos hes gorgeous too

  26. louisquatorze says:

    Roque makes me swoon. Thoughts just leave my head. He’s not my normal type at all, and yet… Six feet is a bit too high, yes. As was mentioned before, where does that leave a 5’10″-ish Cesc Fabregas? One can’t leave out Cesc. We could definitely use a German, or some other northern European, though. I don’t quite get The Ramos, so I’m all for substituting him with Metze.

  27. Tandarine says:

    and what about David Villa???:(

  28. Becca says:

    Iker Totally Deserves The Top Spot
    Im Okay With Roque.
    If Ramos Had A Hair Cut He Would Be Fine.
    Gonzalez Isnt Doing It For Me.
    Frank NEEDS To Be Put Back On.
    And Torres Should Be Up There Too.

    But Thats Just My Opinion :)

  29. olivia says:

    WHERES FERNANDO TORRES? this is outrageous.

  30. winnieramos says:

    omg! what is it with all the hating on El Ramos? it’s painfully OBVIOUS why he so deserves to be on this list (the only body in football to rival Ronaldo’s, and do it better),in an even higher rank IMO. everyone saying that he should be replaced with Torres is out of their mind. maybe if Ferando visits someone other than Ollala’s hairstylist soon then he will deserve to be considered for a spot on FF otherwise…it’s not even worth discussing. i also don’t understand the hype surrouding RSC, he’s not even that attractive. so Ramos deserves the boot and Roque gets to stay? is that supposed to be a joke? …but i can’t wait for the next update, and the controversy that will come with that. ;)

  31. one_love=cesc_fabreg says:

    absolutely delighted!… the one prob is that cesc got demoted… but its fine.. only for another finer man.. ;) … i've always loved the spanish love of ms kickette and i can only love it more… nevertheless additions of roque and the ramos is worthy!.. keep it up gals.. =D

  32. XOBarcaBabyOX says:

    : ) Ramos!

  33. Rebecca says:

    DON’T. REMOVE. IKER. I’ll need some big amounts of B&J’s if you remove him. It’s okay if he’s second, but only if Yoann (mmmm… Yoann…) is first. Keep Nando off the list, or WHATEVER, as long as you don’t put Iker on the Hot HOF. Thank you for your time.

  34. Stephanie?sBojan says:

    Kickette, i don’t agree with the Ramos and my Hatred of him is well known, but i can’t believe the negativity some of these people are writing and how angry they are becoming and you were nice enough to add Roque to the F5 and listened to all my petitioning on behalf of Raul for HOF so let me just say thank you for this amazing site and how awesome i think you are! This place is wonderful and i think you do great work. It has definately become a community and i have discovered many hot ballers and great people because of you. again thank you!

  35. agent fierce says:

    definitely torres needs to be in here!!

  36. DC says:

    as adorable as i think Cesc is I think he should be taken out and Nando should be added or Metze. but whatever happens Xabi and Iker should not be taken off that list! ever. I’m still having a hard time seeing the hotness in Roque and Sergio. I like the Hot HOF list even more now. i still don’t understand why Guti is not on thes lists. I say he should be added.

  37. MeLovesFutbol says:

    Is it just me or is RSC looking much older of late? Remember the good old days when he looked like a cheeky 20-something?

  38. cristina_juve says:

    No to the height requirement. Wow, so many Spanish players. Yeah Iker and Xabi deserve to be up there–but what about Lampard or Barzagli?

  39. TammyV says:

    for the newbies… this is mild compared to the first change of the FF, god, that had qualifying rounds. Any change in the list always brings out that passions. However there is no reason to bash each others, focus on ballers, WAGS and their wannabe rivals. We can’t help who we love…be it the hotties, the ugly-hotties, the goofy-hotties, or the Lampys and The G’Nevs

  40. autumnmaple101 says:

    You removed Frankie!! But you added Roque, so it evens out! Thank God C-Ron has been removed, can’t stand him! Cheers, Iker is still no1! Not too sure about Ramos though..Nando seems a better option

  41. mrs carragher says:

    We need torres!!!

  42. Jasmine says:

    I don't agree with this list at all. Kickette I think you're getting way too obsessed with the Spanish soccer players. If you aren't going to have Cristiano on there you should at least have an Italian or two.

  43. Lizzie A.K.A "T says:

    A little bit of nando won't hurt! C'mon Kickette's!!

  44. P says:

    WHAT? Still no Torres in the F5? Awww. Come on, Kickettes. EL Nino is now El Hombre. I’d like to see Mr. Torres on the FF list please.

    Anyway… YAY for Mr. Casillas being still on top. And Sergio Ramos for making #4! Hot bod, anyone?

    I agree with the others that the list looks better without C-RON.

  45. Kat says:

    Poor Lamps. Although I do give you props for adding Roque to the Finest Five list. He's a guilty pleasure of mine in the "Pretty Boys of the EPL" list.

  46. TammyV says:

    Diziet, Liverpool’s No. 9 is still spanish regardless of how white he is. Going off of Lamps’s idea maybe it should be by league even and then do a champion’s league final

  48. Moongirl says:

    Oooo thats a nice treat for a Friday! I agree Roque’s a good and necessary newcomer to the list and Thierry is definitely a worthy addition to the HOF! Have to agree with Carly on the Nando issue though – sorry SBAers!!!

  49. Johnna says:

    I like posting up here better so I refreshed and voila, I could do so. Damn Kickette, I always knew there were bandwagon fangirls, but I never knew you?d be part of it. Why don?t you just make the list ?everyone on the Spanish team regardless of actual attractiveness? and be done with it? The addition of Roque is appreciated, but there are alot of other countries that have hot footballers. No need to go run and join the masses that flocked to the team after the Euros.

  50. Johnna says:

    SuzyQ, that was my entire point. There are plenty of other countries out there that have fantastic looking ballers. Just because everyone jumped on the Spain bandwagon doesn’t mean they are the only country in the world to play football, jeez.

  51. LoveLamps says:

    My mind is racing – what you do to me THE RAMOS! I just suggested this on the SBA – I think we need an SBA FF, a GBA FF, an EBA FF, etc. and then we take the tops from each to great the International FF!

  52. Sarah says:

    Wow, that is a total improvement! Good on you, Nando.

  53. LoveLamps says:

    Ok TammyV, as usual, makes an excellent point. I was so caught up in THE RAMOS pics that I could not focus. There should be more diversity. I love the Spanish ballers (yes I have been brainwashed by the SBA and there really is no going back), but diversity is key. We need at least one Englishman up there and preferrably a German (Metze) too!

  54. Erin says:

    Very interesting…. I’m happy to see Roque there, he is deserving. THRILLED to see the scum cron removed. Disappointed to see Xabi at 5, but more disappointed not to see Torres on there at all! I never have and never will see the hotness in Cesc Fabregas. I’m also not privy to the allure of The Ramos, but the body is definitely deserving, and I appreciate Kickette admitting the reason for that inclusion. LOL! Kickette, you are definitely having a “Latin Lovah Summah”. :)

  55. Avenath says:

    What??…no Torres?? :O…this is travesty!!!…i was so happy to see Roque in the list and Lamps out, but to not have Torres in the list is quite upsetting…btw, i still can’t understand the reason for Cesc being there…and above Xabi at that…that is just so wrong…sigh…

  56. Erin says:

    This is the only one I can find right now…from the LFC website. Photobucket

  57. Erin says:

    Seeing as the Spanish ballers are not crap…not an apt comparison. That said, it really is man by man for me and not nationality by nationality.

  58. Sarah says:

    The Kickette F5 list tends to rage controversy and war across the land. Controversy and war, indeed. Be happy everyone. Make love, not war. :]

  85. lindsaytorres says:

    r u kidding me? this guy is nto attracive at all…well slightly but not even close to the HOT HOF…all i wan tto know is wheres torres..there seems to be enough votes on here already

  87. nail art says:

    Raul, Raul…oh Raul. You hot man yoU!

  88. Great stuff.. Hope to read more of this.!

  89. Susanna says:

    Cough Cough. Where is Nando? Get rid of Ramos and replace him with Nando. You say you kept Nando off the list due to his hair, well call me old fashioned but I think Ramos’ hair is worse.

  90. ????? says:

    Why Don’t You But Alberto Aquilani Pic’s ??

  91. I would love to see Pirlo or Adriano in there..

  92. Nando most certainly needs to be on the list!!!  Love him!  He has the whole package—great face, body, talent, and genuineness.  Ramos—HOT HOT HOT!!  What a body!  Those Spainards sure are special to this chica. free games for mobile

  93. Karan Kapur says:

    How come henry’s on dis list…?????Dis is utter bull crap…this guy is wierd…he has a oval skull wid no brain./..he’s a pathetic offsider…n he’s ultimately ugly!!!

  94. KatiePatie says:

    Who do I have to bribe to get some more sexalicious pictures of My Cesc Fabregas on here?!! Seriously – I’m shaking with dirty thrill withdrawls ! Aaragh.

  95. ashley says:

    Keep sergio and cesc on the list, they are by far the hottest, seriously look at the body on sergio phwoarrrr

  96. Fairings says:

    Aren’t they awesome! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/surprise.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="surprised" style="border:0;" />

  97. ashlee says:

    mmmmm Iker Casillas.
    Damn that guy is on fire.

  98. lee says:

    kickettes!
    nownow.. a trophy can make anyone look good.  though, i’m not waiting with bated breath on your preferred lists.  i respect everyone’s hotlist.  personally, give me xabi anytime. he doesn’t only look hot, he can sustain intelligent conversation, and it doesn’t look like he has a problem down there.  i wonder if he does the laundry??  his taste in the opposite sex though is an atrocity. girlfriend looks a slight nudge away from being a transvestite. and we’ve seen better looking transvestites.  love the site, ladies!

  99. Lola says:

    Uhm, Sergio Ramos (resembles a bunny, k thx)? Raul(ergh)? Henry (-.-)?

    What about David Villa? what about Cristoph Metzelder? Miroslav Klose? And the tons of footballers that are way better than Ramos/Raul/Henry?

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

    (Do check out the Germany NT. Now, that is hot).

  100. Rusty says:

    So glad I was away for this one. A few days gives me perspective and makes me unlikely to whine.

    keyword: class67, which I’m exhibiting.

  101. Hannah says:

    OMG Torres should soo be on there! he’s ff material if ever i saw it! =) lol… He is soo fine and hot!
    x

  102. Amelia says:

    LOL—this is f*cked!

  103. DebC says:

    Nando most certainly needs to be on the list!!!  Love him!  He has the whole package—great face, body, talent, and genuineness.  Ramos—HOT HOT HOT!!  What a body!  Those Spainards sure are special to this chica.

  104. joeycole<3 says:

    torres and ronaldo should definitly be in there
    santa cruz does not deserve to be second
    maybe fourh or fifth
    and still no joe cole added to the list
    kickette am disapointed
    lol

  105. ` carmella says:

    ‘wha do ppl see in cesc && nando.. sOrry but blehhhh.. its time we get overrrrr the cristianO types.. surree hes hott && fit but its sooo old news.. && those silveR shorts didnt help xDD

  106. Helena says:

    I totally agree about Ronaldo, ok his body is exaggeratedly amazing but right now I’m kind of over him. At the moment though i am desperate for Torres to be on the list, He’s just too amazing!

  107. ^^K^^ says:

    Raul and Thierry definitely deserve to be icluded in the HOF wink

  108. Jo says:

    Raul is a worthy addition to the HOF.  Henry doesn’t do it for me but I get why he needs a spot.

    Just a retro question: How come Roy Keane never made it in the HOF?  Did he retire before the HOF was established?

  109. jenni442 says:

    Omigosh!  Nice choices, Kickette.  When you have to narrow it down to three, it’s impossible, not just difficult.  I’m having a problem with no Argentines on the list, therefore I am not happy with the height restriction.  Players like Ezequiel Lavezzi, Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero, Ever Banega, Fernando Gago and Jose Sosa could complete with your Top 5 any day!  And there are many, many more.  Be sure to watch the Olympics!

  110. Jayne says:

    Although, as an afterthought, I did love the Ramos in his ‘Let’s wind up the losers’ parade after the Euro ‘08 final, he really did tear the arse out of the Germans. Oh well, they were cheating sore losers anyways!!

  111. Jayne says:

    I’m still failing to understand the Ramos thing…I still think he looks like ‘The Missing Link’. I guess some women are into that caveman thing though…

  112. Leman says:

    I Want akses website ok

  113. Alexandra says:

    Woohoooo!! Ramos is on the list! grin

    *Does anyone know why I cant sing up for an account? I keep getting an error :-( *

  114. Reme says:

    As much as I appreciate Raul making the cut but can you please get over this insistent admiration for the Spanish footballers? I mean yeah I get it, they just won the championship and like after every major tournament we have a surge of long lost fans declaring their undying love for the team that won. But going by looks, there are plenty of non Spanish footballers who will oust most of the Spaniards who made the cut. Perhaps, it’d be refreshing to see new faces? Just a thought.

  115. CBlover says:

    Loving the list! Happy to see The Ramos there :D

    Although I’m not feeling the Titi addition.

  116. Maritza says:

    I have to say, I dont see how Ramos is on the list and Torres isnt! it just doesnt make sense!

    and as for Cristiano, regardless of people liking him or not, he is extremely hot and deserves a spot for sure. perhaps replacing Ramos for him?

  117. Elin says:

    Not a big fan of Xabi…& Ramos? Seriously WTF.

  118. Blech.

    Just blech.

    Besides Santa Cruz, blech.

    Where are the English, Irish or Scottish hotties? Or Serbian/Croats?  Anyone but f*cking Spaniards?  Seriously, Kickette, I’m very disappointed.

    TFO (breaking radio silence whilst in Manchester)

  119. anni says:

    YES YES YES!! Finally Roque on the list!

  120. H says:

    I’m so glad to see Titi in the Hall of Fame… and I’m still crossing my fingers for El Ninooooo

  121. Liz says:

    Well Smithy wont make the cut then.

  122. man, ditch cesc; bring on nando!! i’m thrilled that iker remains on top, as many kickettes presumably love to imagine him. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  123. Johnna says:

    Damn Kickette, I always knew there were bangwagon fangirls, but I never knew you’d be part of it. Why don’t you just make the list “everyone on the Spanish team regardless of actual attractiveness” and be done with it?

    The addition of Roque is appreciated, but there are alot of other countries that have hot footballers. No need to go run and join the masses that flocked to the team after the Euros.

  124. ches says:

    YES! Roque is finally getting the recognition he deserves! And Raul is definitely deserving of his place in the HOF.

  125. Smurfette says:

    *happy dance* I think the Ramos deserves a spot on the F5, he’s a sexy beast and those pics speak for themselves *drool*. But why is Nando not on the list??? I don’t see anything wrong with his hair, I think he’s perfect. I don’t see why Xabi is there he just doesn’t do it for me. I know we will never all agree on the F5 but at least it isn’t permanent.

  126. . says:

    This is wrong.

    Bleh.

  127. That Andy Chick says:

    <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/angry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="angry" style="border:0;" /> No, no, no, nooo!! Roque Santa Cruz? The Ramos? Really?? Whyyy?? How can Xabi rank bellow them?? How are they even on the list? Sex Fiberglass is looking weirder by the day… =P

    I looooove Ra

  128. ap says:

    i’d like to nominate rafa marquez – of fc barcalona & the mexico national team. there’s something about him that really does it for me!
    http://www.ohlalamag.com/photos/uncategorized/200…

  129. Motsdesoie says:

    The list is close to perfection, in my opinion.
    Iker is absolutely gorgeous and yes, he should be moved to the Hot HOF soon; that profile is just…magnificent. Roque is lush and a nice addition. Cesc and Xabi are always good.

    Ramos however, meh, I’m not feeling it.

    Ra

  130. Jo says:

    Is this fallout from the Euro victory?  Why don’t you just put the whole Spanish team on there and be done with it? 

    On the bright side, the proposed height requirement would tidy things up quite a bit wink

    Roque, you are my one hope.

  131. nicole says:

    what the eff? i have no words kickette, NO WORDS!!!
    i’m going to go calm down in the ipa, because this is foolishness…

  132. I’m sulking down here!!!!  angry

    How can you have shoved Xabi down to number five and still have Cesc at number three???? I mean seriously? No, just no, no, NO!!!! He isn’t a patch on Xabster, who is getting better looking every bloomin’ day.

    I can’t even congratulate you on the inclusion of Roque and The Ramos, such is my anger at your foolish ways.

    I demand a reshuffle once you have sobered up!!

  133. ibra honey says:

    i second that. sergio ramos hotter than Nando? um, in what world???
    and i’m glad cristiano is off, even if it is only for the time being.
    and the six feet thing? Waaaay not right. tall is good but really 5’11’‘ is tall too you know. becks is 5’11’‘.
    while i like the finest five list, it nearly always baffles me. there are so many hotties out htere who are just ignored. i might be new to kickette but i’ve explored it quite a bit. and i have never seen a hint of Jon Dahl Tommasson. you might want to look him up. and then there are the italians. are maldini and cannavaro the only italians known to kickette world?? there is alessandro del pireo, gianluigi buffon, daniele de rossi among others, and of course you know luca toni, who in my opinion is way hotter than most of the finest five. really kickette, step out of the spanish world. BTW Cesc is as boyish looking as nando, if not more.
    as for the HOF, well i find it a sad thing. because the guys there do deserve it, but i just cannot find them hot. except for the two italians of course. and maybe now raul. henry’s inclusion was inevitable i suppose, but after his divorce he has become sort of a nasty thing in my eyes.

  134. sina says:

    Ramos?
    oh no, im dissapointed#i want to see nando in the FF

  135. Portia says:

    i’m very happy to see the always delish Roque added to the list.  i’m very sad to see the Ramos added. seriously, i just don’t see it.  the fact that he beat out Fernando is completely beyond my comprehension.

  136. carly says:

    Hi TFO! *waves*
    Enjoy your trip!! smile

  137. tami101 says:

    Iker is my number 1 for life!!!

  138. Forever Torres says:

    Torres undoubtedly has to be on here!!! Why isn't he on it?! Quick update it! You are missing the finest man on the planet! x

  139. gunner-chica says:

    hmmm..at least my 3 babies are there..cesc,iker,xabi..happy me .)))

  140. Mrs Fernando Torres says:

    wheres Fernando? it aint a fit list without the fittest fittie!

  141. SNOW_QUEEN says:

    Most of them r not hot. But sure it's not about Iker :)

  142. love JT says:

    jt should be in that list

  143. Rebecca says:

    I say KEEP THE SPANIARDS! Yo quiero espanols (or something like that).

  144. iloveManUtd says:

    they are so fit :p

  145. Liverpool'sNumb says:

    oh ramos. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. and breathe.

  146. PamWWFCx says:

    Where's Nando? Andy Keogh needs a spot of attention somewhere on the site aswel ;)

  147. Nina says:

    Lack of Ronaldo? Why? Don't you like little SUNTUN? :> I'm glad he's not there. Iker is the best.

  148. diziet says:

    fair enough Tammy, hadn't quite caught your meaning and I agree it's rather Iberian-tastic round here. So many hot men competing for just five spaces, that's the problem *sigh*

  149. MrsTorres says:

    wheres torres he should defantly be number 1 and hes not even in the top 5 lol? what happened you need to put him on there

  150. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Iker and Roque yes The rest NO NO NO don't get the obession with Spanish players at all

  151. DanyLampard says:

    IKERRRRRR!!! and Lampsy :'( my two loves :)

  152. lady_referee says:

    This new list was bound to raise controversy! I agree with most of it but I'd make a few changes… Iker is the hosttest around no doubt about it, so I'd let him be the king of the list for a long time! xxx Seeing Roque up there was a lil unexpected but not a bad adition at all. As for the Ramos… well… I think Torres should take his place! THe rest of the list just needs some time to sink in, thats all.

  153. blue_skyz says:

    Well done Kickette! Thank you for adding Roque to the FF and also Raul to HOF. In regards to the height restriction, I'd have to say no – good things could come in small packages – errr… I mean, stature. On that note – could I put down very tall German baller named – Christoph Metzelder down in your "possible FF candidate" list, please? Pictorial evidence could be found in GBA. And I promise no stalking / abusing you for this recommendation :D

  154. aristeia says:

    I think the new additions to the list are fantastic. They may not be MY top 5, but they certainly aren't awful either. In fact, I like it all… I only wish Nando was there. But, he's young. He has time to seduce all of you… ;)

  155. Dee13 (mrs m metze) says:

    oh yeah almost forgot, echoing LynxKitten's and blue_skyz's sentiments: dude, METZELDER..!

  156. Dee13 (mrs m metze) says:

    spot on ibra honey, TFO and tammyv.. there's more to this world than just the spanish ballers.. roque is a good addition…

  157. Ali says:

    i beg to differ TFO, the egg & cheese McGriddles are delish. or make that Huevo y Queso..mmm even better.

  158. Ali says:

    Oh Hellz to the YEAH!!! Roque & The Ramos on FF, Raul and Titi on HHOF!!! seriously excellent listage Kickette. Keep drinking the carrot juice, because your vision is stellar at the mo. girls, i would just like to note that The Ramos does not seek attention..attention just happens to seek him. ;) <img src="http://i322.photobucket.com/albums/nn416/ali1730/El%20Ramos/2-1-1.jpg&quot; alt="Photobucket" border="0"> source: fotolog

  159. Ali says:

    Kickette if you're having an iberian-tastic summer(copyright diziet), then I for one would like to virtually send over a case of San Miguel and say muchos gracias for all the lovely pics and gossip you provide for me during my dreary days in America far away from footy fun. as for all those calling the Ramos horsesque–you know you've always wanted to ride a pony. (edit: this was a joke. seriously, please feel free to bash the ramos all you want, i think it is great fun) :D xoxo to all

  160. Beth says:

    hmmm…very interesting. I think roque and the ramos are worthy additions. Roque because of his hip dips and the ramos because of the lust factor. Raul (TOH) definitely worthy of the hall of fame, although i think Iker should stay at the top of the FF for a little longer…still the hottest. Not sure about Thierry Henry (although i know i will get abuse for that!) and think Xabi should be higher than 5, but overall a good job. Nicely Done Kickette :)

  161. Pink Panther says:

    Yay Sergio! I'm so glad he's in it! I also love the addition of Raúl to HOF. It needed to be done.

  162. Stephanie?sBojan says:

    OMG, Yay Raul. umm, if someone can help me, it won't let me open the discussion boards! i'm gonna cry! but having Raul in the HOF is definately a worthy addition and i'm glad my stalking and emails and petition definately worked!

  163. The Fourth Official says:

    I think Kickette has been influenced by the popularity of the Spanish baller's thread, but has forgotten that, although McDonald's has served 5 billion, the food is still crap.

  164. DiorHeels says:

    Raul, Raul…oh Raul. You hot man yoU!

  165. Mila says:

    i actually don't mind this list i love the ramos n think he has this raw sex apeal u know that "i'm the best sex u'll ever have look" u noe wat i'm tokin about ladies ;) these pics however do not do him justic pic 6 for instance WTF?! thats an awful shot el ramos es muy caliente (excuse the spelling) lol and i see frank has a lot of fans here again WTF? and lets not get started on that high pitch voice SO NOT SEXY so ladies give it up there's no way in hell he'll make it back on there fabregas cute but way way way overatted GET HIM OFF THE LIST VAMOS IKER!!!!!

  166. dos santos girl says:

    GEEZ. Let's start with the bad news: WTF with Ramos? He's not hot AT ALL. OK fine, hot bod, yes but I can only appreciate that I cover his face with my thumb on my monitor hehehe. I understand the deletion of Cristiano, super hot but beyond annoying because he's such a drama queen and has no loyalty to his team. And the best news? The best Roque picture EVER! Gosh Kickette, you just know how to make it all better . . . p.s. no height restrictions please! shorter men should have a chance!

  167. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbe says:

    Moonie! I'm shocked! Well, i'm not but still! *goes all stompy face pouty pout*

  168. Emily (Giggsy's says:

    New post: Iker: yes. Muy muy muy guapo. Me gusta mucho. Yum. Roque: FINALLY!!! The haircut must have really done it for him to rocket straight on to the list at #2. Numbers 3, 4 and 5: one of them is cute, but the other two are not my cup of tea.

  169. Anna (Frau Manuel Ne says:

    i don't really like henry loved the removal of cristiano AND I'M WITH YOU, GIRLS! the finest 5 needs a german baller! Metzelder, please!! His height, his fingers, his beard, his everything deserves it!

  170. Venice says:

    Wow the long awaited change is here. Raúl!!!! So you've finally seen the light Kickette! Well it's been about time! I'm happy for Thierry too, him and Raúl are the finest men in the game. I'm so glad for Roque, he's a beautiful man. The Ramos is definitely not my cup of tea, he does look like a horse to me just like Carly said and he's an attention seeker which I dislike, but I'll survive. I don't like to see Xabi last in the list, but at least he's still up there so that's good. And yes, Iker still has the best chiseled profile in the game, so please keep him up there for a little more. Overall, well done Kickette! I'm pleased. P.S. I totally support the height restriction idea, 6'0 really is the minimum. Even though that would mean Cesc would be off the list??

  171. Venice says:

    Oh I the height issue shouldn't apply to the HHOF – they are the untouchables after all. Come to think of it, maybe we should forget about it.

  172. Venice says:

    Lol Ali!! I really did want a pony when I was a kid. I love the site, and the forum, and all the posters, just being around girls who appreciate the game and the players is fabulous. Any lists of hot men come second to that.

  173. carly says:

    Oh wow! I didn't know there was going to be a new F5 list! Why didn't you warn us Kicks? ;) I'm definitely happy about Roque. He's a god. Full stop. As for The Ramos, well, with all the commotion surrounding the Euro, I guess it's natural, even though he looks like a horse. Raul on the contrary has definitely a place in the HOF. He's great. Nando should not under any circumnstances be a candidate.

  174. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Can't get on either, Steph. Go to Laura's blog.

  175. Boston Red says:

    I'm pretty unimpressed with the changes. Roque is alright. Ramos does nothing for me – can't take long hair on men. The only F5er I really appreciate is Iker. He's a God! Raul and Henry also do nothing for me. Sorry on being so picky ladies!

  176. Pau de Silva (aka Sa says:

    The RAMOS??? Ooh my Iker!!! WHY??? Ali, Pavi, Lucy and Co. I love you girls but WHY??? oh no!! this is bad!!! I agree with Iker, Roque (aw) and Xabi. Cesc??? hum he is cute, but not THAT cute. Moving to Frank, I still love the guy and I dont know why, so I dont expect my love to be understood =(. I am really happy Raul made it to the HOF =) xoxo, Kickette rocks!!!

  177. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    If Metze makes the FF, I'm handing in my Kickette membershiop, that man is not hot at all!! I do like Rusty's new man though. And I agree, even though I love the Spanish men, it is a bit Spanish overload, I vote the removal of Cesc.

  178. TammyV says:

    Oh and the Alturnative Careers for ballers was still the best post EVER

  179. Sarah says:

    Fantastic update!! I'm not a huge fan of El Ramos, but I don't hate him, and I understand the appeal. And Roque!! Mmmmm. I'm so happy that the two guys I can't stand were kicked off (no offense c9 and LoveLamps!). I don't even mind that Cesc was demoted a bit. And I'm loving the additions to the HOF–Titi = love. And Raul, of course. This was definitely worth the wait!

  180. LoveLamps says:

    THE RAMOS BABY!!!!!! It TOTALLY makes up for Lampsy being taken off the list!

  181. LoveLamps says:

    Seriously Kickettes, I love you all! I know Frank had to go and I was delighted when he finally made it after all of my serious campaigning on lovelamps.blogspot.com. It's SO wonderful that you recognize THE RAMOS, as he is my new official lust-of-the-moment. And so glad that C-Ron finally falls for a bit. It's temporary I know, but after the girl, he needs punishment. C9 can punish him accordingly and he can then return with his hip dip. Ah THE RAMOS!!!!! *faints*

  182. FootballerChick43 - says:

    LOVE the new list. Oh my jeez. I totally agree with all parties on the new list. Loving it :) I especially love that its C-Ron free.

  183. Erin says:

    Quite honestly, he's FF material to me no matter what's going on with his hair. :) One more from BBC… <img src="http://i278.photobucket.com/albums/kk101/ErinLiverpoolFC/_44886238_rangers_liverpool2.jpg&quot; border="0" alt="Photobucket">

  184. torres4ever says:

    Why isn’t Torres on here?

  185. KopClass says:

    Torres needs to be in the list! How many people have to say it?!! ;)

  186. Laura says:

    Torres! Torres! :) Yes please.

  187. kiwiii says:

    yeah I really need some Torres-cuteness up there, too! so please put his cute freckled face on the list already!!:D then, I think a lot of the ladies here will be very happy and pleased^^

  188. IRA says:

    We wanna see our NANDOOOOO here on this list! :D

  189. iker-ness says:

    cesc’s hair is tres ‘orrible. even with his cute face. i think we need to demote him for now. please oh please for nandos freckles sake put him up there. he got a hair cut for you. he held a baby for you. his a bit devious with the whole i pulled my hamstring business with the UEFA champions league match against atletctico madrid what else do you want kickette’ERS?

  190. emogenharris says:

    oh and did anyone else think the ramos pic was (almost) ruined by redshorts behind him? other than that, thanks for the fantastic pics kickette! youse have exquisite taste most times (i can’t quite grasp the cron attraction).

  191. diziet says:

    hmmmmm. not wholly convinced. Although right now I’m more concerned about poor Roque who picked up an injury this afternoon… hopefully nothing too serious *sob*

  192. MrsTorres says:

    i wish all of us could be happy lol but im not no nando :(

  193. xx?MiSSz.CasiLLaS?xx says:

    Thumbs up on Ramos!He Def deserves a spot there! still think Torres should have been on the list, But I Love this list,anwayz :D as long as iker’s on top! :D

  194. Louise says:

    Iker is far too young to be in the HOF! He belongs right on top of the F5 where he is now for a long time to come. And I am so happy to see Raul in the HOF. Well deserved–I love his curls and his oh-so-serious manner. If you implemented the height restriction, you’d lose quite a few guys, especially if you used it for the HOF, too: Cesc, Raul, and Canna, at least.

  195. Cici says:

    Sergio is in-Im happy!!

  196. Cici says:

    would it help if we share Ser with you?

  197. Callie says:

    Iker Iker Iker Iker Iker Iker Iker Iker!!!! And good to see The Original Hottie (Raul) placed straight into the HOF!!! The Ramos I don’t agree with though, Niko Kranjcar and his Cro package over him anyday!

  198. RedGirl (Mrs. Casillas) says:

    All I want to say about this whole ‘Spanish like/dislike’ thing is that we should respect Kickette’s choice. We were not asked about this and it’s well known the list can change at any moment. I’ve disagreed in the past with some of the players on the FF and that didn’t mean I went to criticize them i.e. calling the Ramos horsesque (and keep in mind that I’m quoting this even when he’s not my ‘type’)or telling Kickette you’ve jumped into ‘certain bangwagon’. And if I expressed my opinion I did it being very careful of not offending anybody. Everybody should keep in mind (and I include myself of course) that this is a place to have fun and not for complaining because of an insignificant thing like a list of ballers. I hope this whole thing can be solved so we can be a happy ‘ballers fans/stalkers’ again =P

  199. RedGirl (Mrs. Casillas) says:

    Lots of spaniards on the list =) I’m quite pleased with the FF, specially with the fact of having Íker on top ;-) And TOH really deserves to be on the HHOF. Grande, Raúl!!!

  200. cheska_so_fierce says:

    LOL! i like the height standard! we should have towering hotties. the bigger the better for me. generally i like the list but replacing nando for roque is like ‘what!?’ i’m happy as long as, yes, iker is on top!

  201. MrsMichaelOwen says:

    Good List Kickette. The spanish man love is definately there 4 me. x

  202. Anja (Miss Red) says:

    Well, it’s a bit different then I expected it would be, but I like it anyway. Much better without C-Ron :D

  203. Brandy says:

    I completely agree with the height requirement. Nothing says “unattractive” like a wee-man! I guess we all saw Cristiano’s fall from grace coming, hell even I have felt a dwindling drive for the man. But I think that will fix itself once he is back playing and banging hookers. Or as Kickette mentioned, when I go through his wet in briefs pix… Really disappointed to see Thierry in the HOF… not hot, shitty guy, doesn’t deserve any recognition at all. Too many Spaniards! Although I do like them, I like my clustered men to have variety! Not one Hot Italian in the F5?! Do I have to remind people of the D&G ads?! IKER FOREVER!!!!

  204. AJ says:

    I get Roque and Iker. The other three are not my cup of tea. Raul is a welcomed inclusion. I don’t mind C-Ron being taken off given his behavior but if it’s just down to looks, both him and Frank deserve to be on it before Ramos, Cesc and Xabi. Sorry gals. :( Now that you’ve got the Spaniards out of your system Kickette, can you start looking around? There’s hot ballers in places other than Spain, I swear! :)

  205. Pau de Silva (aka Sambu) says:

    The RAMOS??? Ooh my Iker!!! WHY??? Ali, Pavi, Lucy and Co. I love you girls but WHY??? oh no!! this is bad!!! I agree with Iker, Roque (aw) and Xabi. Cesc??? hum he is cute, but not THAT cute. Moving to Frank, I still love the guy and I dont know why, so I dont expect my love to be understood =(. I am really happy Raul made it to the HOF =) xoxo, Kickette rocks!!!

  206. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    If Metze makes the FF, I’m handing in my Kickette membershiop, that man is not hot at all!! I do like Rusty’s new man though. And I agree, even though I love the Spanish men, it is a bit Spanish overload, I vote the removal of Cesc.

  207. TammyV says:

    Oh and the Alturnative Careers for ballers was still the best post EVER

  208. TammyV says:

    Wow.. holy super latin-only men kickette… I love all of these boys a lot but seriously we could totally use a some diversity in there. Lampys at least brought in the English element. There are no hot Americans, no hot Europeans (not Spanish), no hot Africans. Would it not have been easier to have No. 1 as the Spanish National Team Starting XI and then have four other sports for other people? The Hot HOF has lots of diversity in it, so should the FF.

  209. Rida says:

    Cesc should be higher up the list~!

  210. SamGunner! says:

    why is roque there and fernando isnt? I think it should be: 1.Fernando Torres 2.Cesc Fabregas 3.Yoann Gourcuff 4.Iker Casillas 5.Fabio Cannavaro What do you think?

  211. carly says:

    Oh wow! I didn’t know there was going to be a new F5 list! Why didn’t you warn us Kicks? ;) I’m definitely happy about Roque. He’s a god. Full stop. As for The Ramos, well, with all the commotion surrounding the Euro, I guess it’s natural, even though he looks like a horse. Raul on the contrary has definitely a place in the HOF. He’s great. Nando should not under any circumnstances be a candidate.

    Oh yeah, I agree with Lucy! No height restrictions! (Seems odd that I’m saying that, because normally I’m very picky about height–but Cesc must stay on the list, no matter how pint-sized he is!)

    I’m not complaining, much better than the last one.

    TFO, I am constantly in awe of you! You crack me up. Kickette, dear Kickette- I knew that Frank would be taken off the list, but to be replaced by the Ramos? The Ramos, FFS? (I am shaking my head in confusion.) You wound me, Kickette. But no, I’ll not cry about it I suppose. After all, the most truly awesome man in football (JT of course)will, I’m sure, never make your F5 list and I’m okay with that. The truth is I prefer it that way- I don’t like to share. lol So I’ll just keep on loving him and Frank as my very own never-changing Finest 2 (I don’t bother with any more because no one else even comes close!)

    Watching Liverpool play Rangers right now (half time at the moment) and I would like to report that Torres has good hair again. (Oh, and he scored as well!) Can’t find a photo right now, but it looks like the beginning of last season…shorter and blond. Quite nice. :)

    Holy christ on a cracker, this has turned into a ridiculous, childish rant session! If I am not mistaken, this is *KICKETTE’S* Finest Five. Of course we will all have differing opinions! ‘Tis the nature of us! Does that mean we need to denigrate those who hold those opinions? I can say I don’t find Ramos attractive myself without insulting people who put him at the top of their list. I happen to find a few of the Spanish ballers attractive. Not all of them–only one from this list, dear Xabi. :) I supported Spain in the Euros because of the Liverpool connection. Does that make me a follow-the-leader fangirl? Of course not. We are all free to support whomever we choose, for any reason. In my opinion, Kickette is about discussing ballers and sharing our thoughts, positive and negative. About FOOTBALLERS. Not each other. It’s not about bashing people who don’t hold the same opinions, regardless of what baller or country or club they support. Kickette will continue to be a fun place if people remember that!

    You’re not alone, Beth. I don’t find Henry remotely attractive. He has a clown mouth.
