Would You: Anders Lindegaard, Manchester United & Owen Garvan, Crystal Palace

International breaks are usually met with blank stares and the desire to ditch Kickette HQ for long lunches that include several bottles of wine. Unless the games mean something or someones gets naked, we struggle to get excited about them.
Which is why we are bringing you a double dose of Would You? today. First, let’s have a look at Manchester United’s newest goalkeeper. With the retirement of Edwin van der Sar, United need to fill the spot between the sticks and they’ve settled on Danish international Anders Lindegaard.
At 26 years young (that’s, like, 18 in goalkeeper years), and standing at an ubiquitous 6’4″, we approve of this transaction. As we match the colour of his lovely blue eyes to a body of water in the Caribbean, tell us if you would, Kickettes?
Next up: Crystal Palace midfielder/Ireland international Owen Garvan. Before we go any further may we remind you of our feelings for men named Owen.

The Dublin native is just 23 y/o, but is already making a name for himself in the English Championship, winning the FA Youth Cup with Ipswich Town in 2005. He’s been compared to Steven Gerrard, and not just in the looks department.
Like Anders, Owen is in possession of a thrilling pair of blue eyes. We’re also quite excited by the thigh situation he’s got going on there.
Our verdict? Yep.
So, dear readers, do both, either or none of these fellas tickle your fancy? Are there any new faces or bodies we should be on the look out for?
