Things We Learned From Being The Talk Of ESPN’s Terrace

Hot football soccer players

Nothing pleases us more than seeing a group of grown men get together to discuss hot footballers, as inspired by our mancandy lust lists of objectification. We’re like, so legit.

Wait, we take that back. Seeing Chris Cohen hold up a tonguetastic photo of Fabio Cannavaro was the cherry on top of our post V-day sundaes.

See how fickle we are? Knowing how quickly our taste in ‘baller boys changes, it’s no wonder ESPN Talk Of The Terrace guests Darren Huckerby, Michael McKell and Tom Davis had a hard time naming any member of our Finest Five list during a game of ‘hottie or nottie’ earlier this week.

In spite of the fact that all three ‘contestants’ were unable to conjure up correct guesses, we did find a bright spot in Birmingham City’s Curtis Davies thanks to Michael McKell. He told us to check him out, and that we did and are still doing.

Anyhow, here’s a few things we came to appreciate as each of the show’s cohorts decided which players were our faves.

  1. Michael McKell has good taste in manpieces and has an open invitation to join the Kickette clubhouse. He’s entitled to such a prestigious position after calling Xabi Alonso and Fabio Cannavaro ‘hotties’.
  2. Kelly Cates’ dress was highly covetable.
  3. We were troubled by Tom Davis’ views on good-looking game players, and are weighing up the possibility of an intervention. Not only did he incorrectly say that Freddie Ljungberg is a ‘hottie all day long’ (here’s why not), he denied Iker Casillas as he explained that the Real Madrid goalkeeper/captain was ‘not his type’. Well, Mr. Davis, other than his boyish charm and painfully pretty face, his pockets full of paper are nearly bursting at the seams.  We certainly consider him to be ‘our type’ and have a persuasive photo gallery to prove it.
  4. Chris C. was right, Paolo Maldini is ‘a dreamboat’.

For your viewing ease, watch the clip here (around 2.44 mark). All the Great Britain-based lovelies, be sure to tune into ‘Talk of the Terrace’, airing on ESPN UK every Monday from 6.30-8.00pm during the footy season.

    This is hilarious!! It's funny to see the guys' opinions on who they think is "hottie or nottie". Wish Kickette got more love in the states. It would definately make football much more popular here! It's the first place I go when someone asks why I love the sport so much ;)

    Haha, that made me feel so happy. I love being a part of this site and love it even more when it's mentioned elsewhere.

    I've met Curtis Davies and he is a top bloke in that guy's defense.

    I was so confused when I watched it! Some men in the Hot HOF were considered hot, some not. They just don't seem to get what we've got going on here.

    Oh well, congratulations on the shout-out! You guys deserve it. This site has been making my life infinitely sexier for years. I'm glad that the word is getting out, and soon us Kickette soldier girls will be taking over the world!

    • Leya_S says:

      I was confused, too. I kept flipping back to my open Kickette page (thank you tabbed browsing).
      But then I realized that when they did the HHoF segment, they were only going for the Top 5. That's whylike Freddie and Titi were "not", lol.

      • hereforthenando says:

        A world where Freddie is a "not" just isn't the kind of world that I want to live in! Or maybe it is, because that would mean that everyone else is hotter…

  5. Louise says:

    Too bad they got the Finest Five and the HOF mixed up. But that was very funny and I loved the Xabi and Canna appreciation!

  6. IrishBlue says:

    Ciaran Clark = Yum.

  7. Jo_ says:

    Snaps for Kickette! :D

  8. laligaforladies says:

    Love it! I'll have to give Tom Davis a break. Hard as it is to believe, there was a point when Iker was my favourite player solely for his superior goalkeeping skills. I thought he was "not my type". (I was so wrong.) Now I want to marry him. And to be fair, Tom did say he wished he looked like Iker!

  9. IrishBlue says:

    Haha that was brilliant, love to see Kickette getting a good mention! I'm just trying to remember how I found this site all that time ago, I'm really not sure but I'm so glad I did, my boyfriend is football crazy but I can't exactly discuss the hotness of players with him! He does know about my love for all things Kevin Doyle though ha, though that was kinda obvious when I was at a Chelsea v Wolves game and most of my photos were of him…sigh…that was a good day that was….

    • Shamal says:

      LOL, I found it looking up pictures of nando
      and google somehow always brought me here

      it was meant to be :)

  10. L.V.B says:

    YAY!! Its official and the whole world deserves to know what an awesome website this is.

    First LOL'ed when Germany biggest newspaper mentioned you now ESPN are following, what next ey'? BBC, Sky news?? 10 points to Kickette!

  11. Leya_S says:

    Lol! That was brilliant. I love to see who men think women think are hot, haha.
    Kickette getting not just a shout out, but an entire segment on ESPN? WINNER!!

  12. Linda says:

    Ha! That was FANTASTIC! What a way to start my day – doubly great because I watch Emmerdale! So fun to watch the crooked psycho detective say that Xabi and Curtis Davis are hot! Thank you guys!

  13. Ess-Jay says:

    Hahahahaha. That is gold! Good work ladies.
    However, I do think the finest 5 needs updating though.. And Cescy DEFO needs to be in that Hall of Fame!! He's so scrummy!

    Also. Curtis Davies has always been a hottie, ladies. Where've you been hiding?! The majority of our Villans (or ex-Villans in his case) are delicious!! ;)
