The TTO: Philippe Mexes v Marco Cassetti

image

We’re late. We’re sorry. We’ll keep this short and sweet and let the thighs do the talking, yes?

Get your passports ready, we’re off to Roma!

Philippe Mexes

French. A master in the fine art of the ponytail. Stands at just over 6’1”. Many tattoos. From time to time he enjoys taking his chest out for a spin. His perfect cuddle spot looks to be just between neck and shoulder. Oh, if only we could be sure.

Marco Cassetti

Italian. Excellent facial hair. As well as being the same height as Philippe, Marco has body ink in common with his team mate. He doesn’t dabble in fine hair art, but Mr. C still isn’t afraid to explore his softer side. And when it comes to ensuring his thighs have all the fresh air they need to thrive, he has been known to disrobe on the pitch in full view of the cameras. Indeed, he keeps hope and dreams alive.

Last week’s TTO between Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard caused many of our readers to curse, cry and beg for alternative options. Some had nervous breakdowns. Others lost the ability to string a sentence together. It was a true war of muscle tone, freckles and Scouse accents. After the smoke had cleared, the hamstrings at the top of the pile belonged to Fernando. Congratulations, Mr. Torres. Stevie, off you go for a runner-up rub down. Thx Liz!

    LOL Thank you, Liz. I know when you say "anyone" you mean "Boston Red." My vote goes to Mr. Cassetti and I thank him for showing his bum as well.

  2. The Fourth Official says:

    I can’t believe I missed this yesterday!! Well, I have a little dirty shameful thing for Mexes, but those pictures that Liz posted of Cassetti cannot be ignored.

    Cassetti ftw!

    cassetti purely on the strength of the pic where he's not wearing pants ;)

  4. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    PATO! Oh he isn't in it….in that case then my vote is with Cassetti.

  6. Malin ("MrsFernandoTorres", if I may) says:

    Also, how do I do blank lines? This might not be the forum but I thought I should ask…

  7. Lola says:

    What a lovely thing to wake up to. Thank you Kickette for making getting up at seven in the moring a little more bearable.

    hmmm…. I think Cassetti’s exhibition seals my vote for him. But Mexes + child nearly killed me with loveliness.

  8. Malin ("MrsFernandoTorres", if I may) says:

    Yeeee-haaw! Oops, sorry, couldn’t help myself, the thighs got the best of me. Ahem. *pulls herself together and takes some deep breaths. Right. *breaks down again ands squeels* Cassetti!!

  9. alessandra says:

    cassetti~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*_______________* and yes, congrats to nando. well done, bb.XP

  10. Tres Bien says:

    Philou is looking so lonely.

    But sorry, Philou, I have to go with the masses on this one. Cassetti takes it.

    I honour him with our special badge, by the way.

  11. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Ooh Italian vs French – my two favourite varities of Euro-hot… I'm going to go with Cassetti…

  12. aristeia says:

    Marco. How gorgeous you are. From head to toe. And your thighs are delish. My bb Philou… how I abso-bloody-lutely adore you. Even when you get all aggro and get yourself into trouble. And those awful tattoos. And your horrendous clothing choices. And your little hair piggies. I still love you. And I would do some seriously naughty things to you… especially those thighs of yours. It's me and you, Philou. Against the world. Mexès for me!

  13. cddlykoala says:

    Mexes of course, though come on… you are talking Roma and you don't mention Brighi, Motta, or Totti?

  14. ferzie says:

    i like both*shrugs*

  15. mrscudicini says:

    Cassetti…for the crunches alone…

  16. torres4ever says:

    Casseti.

    While I would prefer to vote for Giggsy or Owen in these photos <IMG title="ok" alt="ok" src="http://staticll.fluxstatic.com/-/Clients/Common/Img/RTE/smiley/alpha/ok.gif&quot; width="24" height="16">, I do realise that this is not a Man Utd TTO. So, I am casting my vote for the object of my long-time dirty, secret, shameful lust — Cassetti. <IMG title="embarassed" alt="embarassed" src="http://staticll.fluxstatic.com/-/Clients/Common/Img/RTE/smiley/alpha/embarassed.gif&quot; width="16" height="16">

  22. FootballerChick43 - "Mrs.Ballack" says:

    Cassetti wins.

  23. fcbfan says:

    Cassetti's powerful, and powerfully beautiful, thighs get my vote.

  24. i_luv_futbol_booty says:

    I adore Mexes but Cassetti definitely wins as a possessor of great thighs

  25. reggie_br says:

    i never thought i'd say that… but based on THESE photos alone, Casseti wins… by a mile… i'm just utterly sad coz Mex is my Frenchie fave… ah! congrats to Nando on last week's TTO although i was among the ones who had a nervous brekdown for having to choose between those two!!!

  26. zo-t says:

    cassetti, without a doubt. although mexes is sweet. maybe there should be a hair award as well… a holiday hair award or something, so that there's more ground for judging, plus, there would be more kickette posts!

  27. Eternal Dreamer says:

    Thanks for the consolation posting, Liz!….Ok, between these two, Cassetti gets my vote!

  28. RedHeart says:

    Cassetti.

  29. HiL says:

    Oh Mexes, you know how much I adore your crazy hair, but with thighs.. CASSETTI wins.

  30. Dani.Mrs José says:

    Cassetti – the ass shot done it for me !

  31. striker says:

    Can I vote for Pato instead? lol. I guess my vote is for Cassetti. I'm not a fan of calf tats on guys in general though.

  32. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Can I vote for Hargreaves in pic 6 – No? ah well in that case it is Cassetti. His bum is just asking for a squeeze !!

  33. Gina Villamelon says:

    Cassetti. For the lack of base layers and the showing of ass.

  34. Nina (Mrs Gerrard) says:

    Casseti for me

  35. Zatil says:

    Cassetti. Italian thighs rule!! ;P

  36. Sarah says:

    Aww, I miss Roma! I want to go back.Oh yeah, thighs? Cassetti.

  37. Avenath says:

    After that fine ass shot – MARCO!!!!!!!

  38. Kelly says:

    this should be an award for worst tattoos. and i would win. casetti, hands down. @aristeia "hair piggies"….lol

  39. Jess says:

    I love Mexes and his pony but in the thigh world he’s got nothing on Cassetti. Besides, who doesn’t love an exhibitionist?

  40. lnc23 says:

    totally Cassetti.

  41. LizB (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    *grins* er yes, by “anyone” I did mostly mean you BR as I remember you saying that Totti NEEDED to be in this TTO. But a few of us specially requested that he not be in it… didn’t think it would be fair.

  42. LizB (Mrs. Vucinic) says:

    Interesting choice, Kickette. I’m not sure if they’re the two I would have gone for, but lovely nevertheless. Glad to see the pics I gave you came in handy!

    I love Mexes and his crazy hair, but Marco’s thighs are far superior. Definitely. It’s a bummer he’s been out injured for the last three months (back now though).

    Oh and here’s a few Totti pics for anyone that is bummed he wasn’t used for the TTO…

    And an extra one of Cassetti…

  43. Blondie says:

    Mexes =)

  44. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbeloa) says:

    Casseti. And congrats to Nando for winning the TTO last week!

  45. carly says:

    Has to be Casseti, come on. Mexes is wearing base layers! And he’s not even fighting it. I don’t think he wants to win the TTO.

  46. carly says:

    Has to be Casseti, come on. Mexes is wearing base layers! And he’s not even fighting it. I don’t think he wants to win the TTO.

  47. Erin says:

    Definitely Cassetti–nice bum as well! ok

    Congrats to our luscious Nando for the big win and gorgeous thighs of steel. And I’m off to help Stevie with that rub down….he’s my thigh-off winner every week!
