The Sizzle Query: The Keepers

image

Here at Kickette HQ, we have quite a soft spot for goal keepers – the solitary men of strength alone with their thoughts and thunder thighs at the end of the pitch, always slightly bordering on crazy due to the isolation, pressure, and taunting, their every-ready highly-coordinated gloved hands – it’s a set of traits that we can get on board with.

So, after our recent discovery of Mr. Steele, we have decided to embark on a serious and in depth reflection period to consider the hot keepers amongst us.  It seems to be a position that the sizzlers gravitate towards, yes? Perhaps one day science will determine why.

Our top ball blocker choice is fairly obvious. We nub Iker Casillas more than words/restraining orders can say.  But for the sake of full research, do inform.  Who gets your vote as the hottest keeper?

    Hmm that is interesting. I've never heard of 5HTP before. I think if it helps without the bad side effects that would be pretty good. My husband and sister are both on depression medication and while it helps they also have to deal with the side effects. I will have to pass this info on. Thanks

    You put up a good argument there Fourth, but no, no and no!! Never gonna happen! I’d rather go on a date with Kasper, which would prob involve a cheap bottle of cider and a quick unexperienced fumble behind the bike shed!

  3. javis says:

    these safety gloves are excellent. I used to have one but someone took it. I think that just shows to me that it really is that excellent of a glove

  5. You put up a excellent discussion there 4th, but no, no and no!! Never going to happen! I’d rather go on a time frame with Kasper, which would prob include a inexpensive container of cider and a fast unexperienced fumble behind the bicycle shed!

    He does not quite do it for me actually, but you are identify on, several weeks gal, when you say that his commitment to spouse and kid are incredibly eye-catching features. Thumbs up!

    He doesn’t quite do it for me physically, but you are spot on, chelsea gal, when you say that his devotion to wife and child are wonderfully attractive qualities. Thumbs up

    these gloves are great. I used to have one but someone stole it. I guess that just proves to me that it really is that good of a glove.Best Youth Football Gloves

  10. MARIA says:

    WELL DA ONLY HOT 1 4 ME IZ MEMO OCHOA !!!!!

  11. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Oh yes we have plenty of other’s thankfully! And I do love the kerazeeeeee Pepe <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  12. MrsJamieRedknapp says:

    Redgirl, and MrsXabi.  Pedelli was only on a six month loan, sadly.  He is now at Pisa.
    We must content ourselves with the lovely big baldy lunatic Pepe.

  13. LoveLamps says:

    Let’s give Hilario a chance here.  I know Cudicini and Cech are superhot, but Hilario is quite the hottie in his own right.

  14. amanda says:

    Timo Hildebrand
    Carlo Cudicini
    Iker Casillas
    Victor Valdes
    Pepe Reina

    maybe Jens Lehmann <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  17. Jo M says:

    It warms my heart that there are other ladies with a soft spot for Van Der Sar.

    It’s truly a love that dare not speak it’s name (outside of these pages)

  18. Sarah x says:

    Kasper Or Carlo,
    I Cant Decide!!

  19. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Think we only (unfortunetly) had him for one season Redgirl :(

  20. Malin says:

    Oh how it annoys me that I’m always soooo mainstream. Cause I just can’t say anyone else than the most obvious one.

    Iker.
    Incredibly hot, and spanish, as if it couldn’t get any better than those dark eyes end sharp cheekbones.

    Oh great Malin. Fernando. Cristiano. And Iker. Gosh, that’s innovative. I would only need to add Becks and Cesc to complete the list. But no. (Or Lamps, but I would never go down that road… )

  22. goalkeeperette says:

    So glad some people here showed me some Jens love! :D He’s so hot, I don’t even mind the balding spot!

    Forgot to mention Petr Cech. Yes, he’s *choke* from Chelsea but has this cute-shy-boyish thing about him. I would cuddle him all day.

  23. Sarah says:

    For me, it’s always been Carlo Cudicini and probably always will be.

  24. citrusjoie says:

    Cudicini

  25. chelsea gal says:

    Lovelamps…i have to admit we have one thing in common, i love lampard as well..but back away coz i got there first!!! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />
    Anyway this is like the tenth time i’ve posted on this article, but i just can’t stop dreaming about CECH (on a saturday) AND LAMPARD
    thanks LoveLamps for reminding me of my true love.

  26. LoveLamps says:

    Sorry Pau.  I see you have made things right with your mention of Ochoa!  Thanks!

  27. LoveLamps says:

    Thanks Kickette for realizing the beauty that is Chelsea’s goalkeepers!  Cech, Cudicini and even Hilario do it for me. 

    And why has no one ever mentioned Guillermo Ochoa from Mexico?  He’s quite the cutie when his hair is done right.

  28. RedGirl says:

    MrsXabiAlonso I looked on the squad profiles of the official website and he’s not there… Where the **** did he go then?

  29. chelsea gal says:

    i was going through all of the comments and thought i’d thank all of you who voted for cech.
    big up da man….anyway, naked pic of van der dar, made me puke AGAIN
    Thanks fourth official, u done it twice…..  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

  30. ches says:

    Casillas by far… But other than him, I rather like Joe Hart and Carlo Cudicini.

  31. LoveLamps says:

    Can we have a review of midfielders next?  Frank is of course #1, but there are a few others out there that are worthy of discussion.  Kickette, help out your sisters on another lonely weekend!

  32. Mila says:

    Miguel Angel Moya for RCD Mallorca in la liga is definite cutie. Spanish goalkeepers are fantastic

  33. Jamie says:

    I have a thing for goalkeepers.

    My favourite has to be Craig Gordon. I have just about recovered from the pain caused by him leaving Hearts for Sunderland. My boys in maroon are a lot less attractive now.

    I also have a soft spot for Edwin VDS. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" /> Number three on the list would be Cech.

  34. Pau says:

    Lovelamps: we have so much in comun…

  35. Arielle says:

    Jens Lehmann. Oh yes, he’s old, and oh yes, he is smoking.

    For a young one, I would of course have to say Timo Hildebrand. Le yum.

  36. Ela eh says:

    1) Pepe Reina
    2) Petr Cech
    3) Joe Hart
    4) Kasper Schmeichel
    5) Iker Casillas

  37. louisquatorze says:

    Ah, goalkeepers. I must admit I’ll fall for a goalkeeper before just about any other position. Maybe it’s an American thing. I love Jens deeply and I do consider him very handsome…but he’s a bit old for me, sadly. (Although he’s an off-the-pitch gentleman and doting father, which does funny things to my insides.) On looks alone I’m all about Victor Valdes. Much more attractive than Iker, who I’ve never liked as much as some. But I also have to put in a word for the next generation of Germans- Manuel Neuer is lovely in a blond-jailbait-with-pouty-lips way, while Rene Adler has a great smile and skill to make anyone swoon.

    I also saw some 19-year-old playing for Stuttgart that made me question my stance on younger men…

  38. chelsea gal says:

    well, i’m a big chelsea fan and when it comes to goal keepers, we’re way ahead.
    But i have to admit Iker is hot.
    Going on to chelsea, First its Cech and then its Cudicini.
    That’s primarily because Cudicini is A LOT older and that he’s not that much of a good goalie.
    Cech does it all for me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=have1GPZ7tw
    Watch that, its all the good shots Cech has saved.

    One thing i like in the foreign men is that they don’t fall for all the British lot (though i am one) through all their prettiness(don’t get too happy)
    It takes a proper man to still be married, have kids with a lady from your own country.
    It proves it, especially when you see his wife.
    She’s pretty but does need to lose a bit of weight to classify for a full-on WAG (n she needs to get drunk, and mad occasionally)
    No offence to anybody but come on peeps start voting for Cech for all the wonderful reasons!!!

  39. SuzyQ says:

    LOL I love these comments!  My vote is absolutely hands down for the sexy beast that is Cudicini…  and Kickette – surely that pic at the top is just a random selection of keepers ??- quite certain you said before you were NOT a Jens fan… you should have reposted your VV love!!  http://www.kickette.com/index.php?/site/comments/…

    NOT feeling David James right now… I used to think he was hot… now… mmm’no.

  40. Gal Friday says:

    No love for David James here?

  41. Cesc's lil bird says:

    Oh Victor is sexy! I’m typing this with my mobile but when i’ll post the most amazing picture of valdes when i go on the computer and find the picture. Edwin just doesn’t do it for me… I totally see the Lehmann thing even though i have a love-hate thing for him when he concedes goals for us with some retarded mistakes! But you know we love us some crazy Arsenal goalies! Kudos to Casillas, Kasper, Cudicini and Foster! Oh yeah and i hav a weird thing for Shay Given.

  42. Robin says:

    Pepe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. carly says:

    Cudicini is probably the best looking man in the Premiership.
    He’s beautiful, sexy and looks like a man, unlike those girlie-players many girls like. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />
    Looking like a real man really helps and many goalkeepers do, now that I think about it.

  44. Mrs Hyypia xxx says:

    #1 Kasper
    #2 Iker
    #3 Craig Gordon
    #4 Radek Cerny
    #5 Ben foster

  45. Addie says:

    VICTOR VALDES!!!!! Barcelona Keeper!

  46. Elise says:

    Definitely Cudicini.  I love Cech, but he’s more cute than hot.  I still love Robert Green, despite the fact that he’s not all that good looking and he plays for West Ham.  TFO- while I love a nice meal, wine, and the theatre, I just don’t see Edwin VDS doing it for me in the bedroom.

  47. Sarah says:

    Kickette, once again you read my mind.  Keepers are totally hot, especially the crazy ones!

    Casillas definitely gets my vote for number one, but I totally agree with Cudicini and little Kasper.  And it’s okay for me to lust after him, he’s older than me.  He’s even slightly older than Cesc!

    I also still have a bit of a soft spot for Lehmann, even though he’s a big crazy angry german that yells a lot.  He does make me laugh.

  48. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Can I also just add what the flip is Jens Lehman doing in the picture’s above?? Surely no one find’s that man attractive?? Do they??!!

  49. Nic says:

    1. Kasper Schmeichel
    2. Carlo Cudicini
    3. Marco Amelia
    4. Iker Casillas
    —- Feel free to add your own fifth. I just loooove those four! Especially Kasper. I know he’s jailbait and all, but a tall blonde? I mean really, how does a girl say no to that? I’d love to teach him the ways to become a real man.

  50. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    NOOOOOOOO!!! Please don’t do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. The Fourth Official says:

    Mrs. Xabi, <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" /> <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/lol.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="LOL" style="border:0;" />

  52. Cheyenne says:

    Carlo Cudicini without a doubt <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  53. tammyv says:

    MrsXA, it would also involve a trip to the police statiuon.. that kid has to still be jailbait <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    TFO – Umm, love you and all, but umm.. yeah, NO on Edwin

  54. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    You put up a good argument there Fourth, but no, no and no!! Never gonna happen!  I’d rather go on a date with Kasper, which would prob involve a cheap bottle of cider and a quick unexperienced fumble behind the bike shed!

  55. The Fourth Official says:

    Craig Gordon.  He is just so full of Scottish deliciousness, I can hardly contain myself.  I want to spread him on my crumpet like Scottish marmalade and eat him all up!

    Ben Foster.  Hunkity-hunk-hunk.  Simple as that. 

    Let me put in a word for Edwin VDS as well.  Before you all moan about my taste or lack thereof, I know that he’s older and not so cutesy as some of the others, but he has a certain stately gentleman quality that I appreciate.  And he’s very well spoken and intelligent.  And he’s still a great keeper, and is still our #1 keeper at age 37 or so, and has over 100 caps for Holland and is their captain.  So, pffffttt on your recriminations about hotness.  You just know that a date with EDVS would involve a lovely meal, some good wine, a sophisticated night at the theatre or a concert, some great conversation, and then some long slow leisurely hot sex.  So,  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_laugh.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue laugh" style="border:0;" /> on you naysayers.

  56. trainee wag says:

    peter cech all the way.
    its his realli cute accent and goofy looking helmet thing that always catches me. He is simply the most adorable goalie ( apart from iker of corse, he just beats all =) )

  57. Sara says:

    Bless you Kickette. GK’s are often overlooked and the Premiership has some corkers!

    Carlo Cudicini is my fav. Deelisshhh!

  58. Erinti says:

    Y’know, I thought I always noticed the goalies because they stay in one place and wear distinctive uniforms, making them easy to keep track of. Good to know that it’s actually because they have a better-than-average chance of being smoking hot.

    * Where have Boruc and Valdes been all my life? And Cudicini, while I’m at it?

    * Iker. IKER.

    * I must admit an enduring soft spot for Mad Jens. Took one look at him during World Cup ‘06 and thought “Hm. Not bad at *all*.“ Balding and slightly bonkers or no, that man has got it.

    * Cech ain’t bad either, though his eyes AAAARGH THEY’RE BORING HOLES INTO MY SOUL MAKE THEM NOT BE ON ME NOW.

    * Are there no attractive goalies working the Greek top flight at all? Seriously, it’s not enough that other countries with richer leagues take up most of the really good players, they seem to get most of the hot ones as well.

  59. The Fourth Official says:

    You’re all party poopers.  I have to find a naked pic of Edwin somewhere.  Maybe that would change your minds.  Going away to google naked Edwin Van Der Sar images.

  60. Pau says:

    nice guys… i agree

    but here at mexico we have a cute one, well at least is what i think…

    Memo Ochoa

    http://s186.photobucket.com/albums/x81/paufeliz/F…

  61. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Redgirl, I’m totally feeling the Pedelli thing.  I wasn’t a huge fan but when I saw him in the flesh my opinion changed a lot.  Even tho he let two goal’s in I could still appriciate the hotness factor!! He’s not with us anymore tho is he?!

  62. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Oh and Foster is nice too (even if he is a Man United player!!)  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_rolleye.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue rolleye" style="border:0;" />

  63. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Oooh I do love keeper’s. My fav is Pepe Reina, he is not only hot but he is also a bit mental.  When at a game you are more likely to find him on the half way line doing stretches than in his goal! I lurvvve a bit of crazy in a man <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    OK I also think Given, James, Robinson, Hart, Cech, Iker and Cudicini (on a good day) are yummy.  Don’t think I’ve missed anyone out!

  64. tammyv says:

    #1 Shay Given – my beloved Newcastle United keeper, who is more then a pretty keeper.  He is my safety blanket.

    #2 Petr Cech – he is the cutest thing around. Tall and blue-eyed and adorable

    #3 Iker – Yeah all good

    #4 Carlo Cudicini – If he is good enough for the Lamps, he is good enough for me

    I LOVE KEEPERS!

  65. Rachel says:

    has to be celtic fc goalkeeper artur boruc !! <3

  66. Erin says:

    Definitely Pepe Reina!  Bald and smokin’.  Even my 60-year-old Scouse mother in law, who saw him on the street in downtown Liverpool, said he is “terribly good looking”.  smile

  67. hitzelle says:

    Iker does it for me!!
    But I’m gonna add Phil Neville along with Sheasey <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />..after that stint in goal where he decided to switch positions and block Kuyt’s shot..hahahah..
    I thank him though =] (Stevie got that penalty..<img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/raspberry.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="raspberry" style="border:0;" />)

    Anyhoo back to the scrumptious goalies..
    As I said Iker wins it overall but Carlo Cudicini is very fit!!!
    So the list goes:
    *Iker
    *Cudicini
    *Cech-

    http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/ii223/thisisex…

    Nuff said.
    And may I point out at the risk of some hating..that Shay given is extremely puke-in-mouth-worthy? I would chose EVDS over him!
    [thats HOW bad he is]
    And Jens Lehmann is balding.
    *ducks*

  68. linz says:

    i enjoy petr cech, but for me cudicini takes the spot

  69. Jen says:

    Iker!!  By a mile for me!

  70. RedGirl says:

    The most ironic thing is that I was planning to ask as a joke ‘Why has nobody mentioned EVDS?‘ <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/tongue_laugh.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue laugh" style="border:0;" />

    May I suggest Padelli? He signed with Liverpool last season

    http://i135.photobucket.com/albums/q132/ruudthebe…

    Let me know what do you think…

  71. Ally says:

    LOL, TFO, I loved that game. O’Shea is legendary. Scores in stoppage time versus the Scousers, plays in goal, nutmegs Luis Figo – there is nothing he can’t do! He’s fabulous.

  72. The Fourth Official says:

    Allison!  LOL!  – John O’Shea – I had forgotten that stint he had in goal – thanks for the reminder.  Here’s a tribute to Sheasey’s brief but fabulous appearance between the sticks against the Spurs in February 2007.

  73. Johnna says:

    Gah why in the world is there a picture of Lehmann on my screen. WHY OH WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME KICKETTE. I need to go throw up in the bathroom before I can read on.

  74. Elle says:

    Where’s Joe Hart?

  75. Rusty says:

    I find Jens Lehmann strangely attractive.

    As for Shay Given, isn’t his given (heee) name something like Seamus John James? He has the same name twice!

  76. Allison says:

    Hey Girlies!  I’m a big fan of Kickette and all of you.  I read your comments everyday and love the chattering and arguing that happens.  ANYWAYS!!  My top 5 keepers are:

    1. BEN ALNWICK!!
    2. Edwin Van der Sar
    3. Robert Green
    4. John O’Shea (That once)
    5. Craig Gordon (I love Scots)

  77. tammyv says:

    sorry for the double post.. it was acting up when I tried to post it

  78. tammyv says:

    “Jens Lehmann all the way! Can a MAN get any sexier than him? GUH!“ – Goalkeeperette

    Yeah – Lots of them… but I love that you love him that much, which might be more then his momma loves him

  79. tammyv says:

  82. goalkeeperette says:

    Jens Lehmann all the way! Can a MAN get any sexier than him? GUH!

    Pepe Reina ain’t bad either!

  83. Tammyv says:

    Thanks Gina,  my #5 is now julio.. God he is adorible

  84. Ally says:

    Belle, you said it! I have this thing about hands and keepers always have the greatest, most beautiful hands. It’s such a turn on.

    Casillas recently had his insured for 7.5 million euros. Hot.

    And Nic – your mother has good taste! wink I find myself acting the same way with quite a few of the Italians, actually. I want to hate them but I just can’t!

  85. DC says:

    Iker!

    Cudicini and Cech should be on that list too, but Iker all the way, number 1.

  86. Sarah says:

    Love that picture of Daddy and Baby Schmeichel!  Adorable.

    And that Celtic keeper, sheesh.  *fans self*

    Manu Neuer, in case anyone was interested (Kaspar fans might find something to look at).

    Hey – don’t everybody forget about Julio Cesar of InterMilan (and Brasil sele

  89. Nic says:

    Ah Belle! Thanks!!! I did enjoy that!
    I must admit, Amelia is not anything even remotely comparable to Iker, Carlo or Kasper, but I don’t follow keepers all that closely! I’m going to have seriously research Victor Valdez and Ben Foster… And anyone else you gals can suggest!!  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/grin.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" />

    I’m gunner, so I’m gonna burn in hell for saying this, but… I’ve realised just recently how hot cech is! I’m wondering how I’ve missed it before!? So cute… Now I’m going to hide somewhere for having shamefull thoughts like this!

  91. Belle says:

    It’s Iker, Iker, and more Iker. You know how good he is with his hands between the posts. Now just imagine how good those hands are between the sheets.
    I also have to throw my support to the newly found Steele. I just couldn’t hate him during the Liverpool match because he was just so damn cute.
    Nic, I noted your Marco Amelia admiration and too had thought that he might pique my interest, however I’m not fully on his boat. However, I googled him to make a fair decision and found a lovely little pic that you might enjoy.

    Note the #1. I died.

  92. Portia says:

    1) Iker
    2) Pepe
    3) Victor

    I just love the Spaniards.

  93. Nic says:

    Ally—- you and my mother would get on splendidly!! She looooves Buffon and does not allowe a negative word against him. She worships the ground he walks on. I didn’t think there was anyone else out there. I personally don’t get it, but hey- to each her own!

  94. Meriam says:

    Ok, in no particular order:

    Iker Casillas
    Victor Valdes
    Buffon (his eyes!!!!!!!)
    Ben Foster

    sigh
    Oh and for the Van Der Sar thing – he seems to be the ULTIMATE gentleman and that’s a really attractive quality – I totally stand by your TFO, surely his niceness has to count for something, right?

    oh, but at the same time, the dinner and everything, fine, but SEX with Van Der Sar – um, no thanks…

    Hehehehehehehehe.  Made ya look.  hehehehe.  Just foolin’ with ya.

     

    Here’s a half-naked Van der Sar pic (that’s the nakedest I could come up with):

    Not so bad.  <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/smile.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    And gee, you know, that great big shiny trophy on his knee – the one that makes him look even sexier – I wonder what that trophy is???  Hmmm?  Oh, goodness me, well, it’s the Barclay’s Premiership Trophy!  You know, the one that every team in England wants?  And he’s got one.  So, how much does *that* add to his sizzle factor????

    Okay, gotta get back to work.  Have a good weekend, everyone.

  96. Ally says:

    Keepers are SO hot. And they’re tall. It’s unbelievably lovely.

    I love Cech and Lehmann as well – the crazy is so much fun. And I have this really soft spot for Buffon… I want to hate him and think he’s a buffoon but I just can’t! Also, Cudicini is gorgeous.

    Iker is by a country mile my favourite though. He is outrageously beautiful, and such a fantastic player.

  97. The Fourth Official says:

    Oh, here’s a cute shot of the Schmeichels pere et fils.

  98. The important thing about goal keepers is big hands imo. Big hands big ….errrr …. heart.

    So I’ll vote for the one with the biggest size gloves

  99. chelsea gal says:

    thank you soooooooo much 4th official. i’m goin 2 go now be4 i end up pukin (yes literally) at your choice
    Van der Sar <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/sick.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="sick" style="border:0;" />

  100. rania says:

    Iker and Valdez. hands down.
    (my word was perform84 hehe)

  101. The Fourth Official says:

    He doesn’t quite do it for me physically, but you are spot on, chelsea gal, when you say that his devotion to wife and child are wonderfully attractive qualities.  Thumbs up!

  102. chelsea gal says:

    plzzzzzzzzzz can sum1 just take a look at a picture of cech n tell me whether he’s cute or not.
    ahhh.
    i’ve been sitting here ever since i posted the earlier one waiting for somebody to back me up.
    come on…someone…anyone…

  103. brandy says:

    1. Iker
    2. Iker
    3. Iker
    4. Iker
    5. Iker

    This man is male perfection – just enough rough and dark, with just enough pretty and hot. LOOOOOOVE me some Casillas.

    On their good days Cudicini and Valdes can catch my attention, but never enough to make me waiver on my goalie of choice.

    Tis true, there is something about these solitary protectors of the hearth that is beyond sexiness. They don’t even have to be physically attractive to make me get all swoony <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  104. The Fourth Official says:

    Mmm.  I gotta watch me some more Celtic matches.  Thanks, Shell.

  105. Nic says:

    Oh Shell, thanks so much for that pic of Artur—and filling in my #5 spot for me!! Fourth—you just made me feel like a dirty old woman at the age of only 23 with that picture!

  106. The Fourth Official says:

    Cute as he is, I can’t share in the Kasper love because I crushed way way hard on his daddy back in the day.  Doesn’t seem right somehow.  ohh

  107. charlton chick says:

    for me it has to be Kasper Schmeichel, once you see him at a match you just wont stop drooling!  tongue wink

  108. Elise says:

    Holy crap.  I think there might be several of us with a new interest in Celtic matches!
