The Finest Five: The Shortlist Review…

… is in session.  We expect to have some definitive updates soon. We just need to look at a few more photos/games in HD and stalk a few more players’ lounges.

It’s rather telling, we think, that the most popular post in Kickette history is the one that asks who the best looking player in the game is

It’s why we do what we do, dear Kickettes.  To everyone who commented, continues to comment, scoures to globe for players we need to know about, and mistakenly calls out the name, “Kaka!“ when in bed with their partner, we are forever bonded to you. Pinky swear, stamped it, double-oxted it.

Now we must get back to compiling our Finest Five shortlist.  We’ve narrowed it down to double digits.  And yes, it might just involve you, Carlos Bocanegra.

  1. I fear some football-god retribution, but I don’t think this guy is handsome at all. Actually, he looks a bit gay with the hair and the tank. And the pose. And the eyes.

    Yay Carlos!!!

    The picture doesn’t do justice to his green-blue eyes

  3. His ability to come through with the odd set-piece header really skewed public opinion. At the end of the day, he’s an error-prone, substandard defender.
    Don’t get me wrong, I like the guy and love seeing my countrymen in the EPL- but I can definitely understand why he fell out of favor.

    well…hes pretty damn hot i must admit, but cristiano ronaldo is way hotter <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" /> and the idea of a hottie football team is a must-have for all female footie fans out there on condition that the hottest guy ever to set foot on the pitch, cristiano, is included! plus, cristiano should obviously be number 1 on the finest five otherwise theres just no point to the whole thing <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

    So where is the shortlist?
    I may have to vote on this one. I surrender.
    You people kill me.

    Good idea Tammy! Carlos looks good enough to eat in that pic.
    Are we at least going to get a shortlist soon, Kickette? Maybe a final top 20 or 15?

    Hey, I don’t think he’s the hottest, but that’s a bit harsh, don’t you think Victoria? And that’s coming from me.

    Is it sad that I think an American entry on the Finest Five is a point for footballing in this country? Yes? I thought so.

    I’m with you on this one Victoria – GOOD CALL!

    And the way the darkness is creeping up on him is also a bit gay and over-dramatic. It reminds me of Dungeons & Dragons.

    Sorry to bash your man.

  24. tammyv says:

    YAY Carlos!!!! 

    Seriously, Kickette, have you considered doing a hottie XI? You could do it by position (mind runs to to bad place – BAD BAD TAMMY!).  A 4-4-2 or a 3-5-1 would get you more fineness to admire (ok, I know “fineness” isn’t actually a word but work with me <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> )
