Yoann Gourcuff: Face To Face, Finally

Image: Jordan Beard for A Football Report.

The story of this weekend goes to us meeting Yoann Gourcuff, a day everyone at Kickette had been hoping, praying and taking bets for.

Whilst drinking ourselves into a adult beverage-induced stupor at Red Bulls Arena during the Trophee Des Champions, we happened to bump into Lyon’s resident cutie-pants, where he was kicking back with a few of his teammates as the on-pitch action played out. After quickly scoffing down our concession stand treats, we successfully ensconced YoGo into a quiet corner for a chat.

Sadly, he barely budged, although we did briefly discuss his hair (he didn’t bother with product that day even though he probably should have) and one of his and our favourite things (cologne, which he insisted smells best and “really permeates better after a good training session and shower”). When poked about Karine Ferri, Gourcuff smirked, mumbled incoherent French and sent the rest of our day into a downward stroke by slowly making his way back to his seat.

We followed him, attempting to cling on to our 15 minutes of fame while acting like we weren’t desperate for another whiff of his neck, but it wasn’t meant to be.

Our drunken romantic approaches are rarely appreciated, Kickettes. But to be spurned by our beloved Lashes? Our going out pouts may never recover.

    dai ora nn facciamo paarnogi assurdi la grafica si semplice ma, mi sembra evidente, per questioni di scelte stilistiche (naturalmente condizionate dai limiti del wii, ma comunque scelte). E’ tutta l’impronta grafica da considerare: naturale che se non fai un’ambientazione iper-realistica da next gen, devi semplificare e puntare sul “fumettoso”. L’ importante l’omogeneit della scena, e anche lo stesso de Blob un classico esempio del gioco che contrasta gli altrimenti evidenti limiti tecnici con scelte stilistiche azzeccatissime, capaci, nella maggior parte dei casi, di far dimenticare la pochezza dei poligoni utilizzati.Poi, com’ naturale e trattandosi di gusti, ognuno lo pensa come vuole, l’unica cosa che non gradirei e che non sarebbe giusta marchiare come scarso e graficamente pessimo un gioco solo perch inizia per “Need for Speed” NB: preferite la grafica di Undercover?!?!?

    what a tease this article is …. but does he speak english? what did he say about that girl? how did you manage to corner him?

  4. Andrea says:

    I am pretty biased because I do adore Yoann but I actually got a chance to meet Yoann in Montreal, Canada. He definitely is reserved, which may look cold. However, he was so nice to me. Since, I am a bit of a dedicated (or stalkery. LOL) I figured it'd be rude to be very invasive in his personal life. Yoann does have beautiful skin and he politely signed my jersey and gave me the biggest smile. I found him to be perfectly wonderful.

  6. Alik says:

  8. Rainbow says:

    Wait did you say ANOTHER WHIFF??? As in you had ALREADY whiffed once??? We need a play by play of such moment! Oh I would melt if given the chance to have such opportunity. Forget the gold, I want to win a whiff of Gourcuffs neck!

  9. Rainbow says:

    BUT did he pout his lips while talking? did he actually speak english? if so, how was the accent? what does he smell like? did he keep his hands in his pockets? how did you approach such specimen? is his skin really flawless? Did you auto-combust afterwards? This are the questions we want answered!! Come on Kickette! Dont tease us like this!!

  12. Aurora says:

    This is Yoann at his best….being shy himself. We shouldnt be surprised.

    • Anna says:

      Yes, that's why it's so surprising that he's with such an outgoing girl like Karine.

  13. earidurt says:

    no no NO….we need a detailed play by play…this will not do lol. we want to hear EVERYTHING!! and i meant everything….right down to the number of times he batted those long lashes of his.

  14. OhDear says:

    Aw, that must have been so disappointing! I like him and all and know that everyone says he's really reserved, but it sounded like he was a bit rude?

  15. IrishBlue says:
