Anyone else? My husband thinks I enjoy watching football with him for the game....not true!!

You are not alone. He is old enough to be my Dad and yet I find him strangely charismatic and attractive. Oh and when he speaks with his lovely Franche accent. Ooh la la!

I think a lot of women go for that 'tormented French economics professor' kind of look. And he hasn't got the big, red-faced drinker's head on him that seems to feature so often in a puffa jacket on the touchline. Or whatever it's calked. Dugout? Bench? Football wings?

Sorry, I'm a Gooner and I'm still saying ewwwww

Massive affection, yes, actual crush? no no no

I am liking the rockabilly look that's taken over the team though. Aaron Ramsey used to look like a choirboy, now he's vaguely interesting looking smile

YANBU. He's definitely got a certain charm. Plus he's hung on to his job for 18 years. Wish I felt the same about Brendan Rodgers though....

I've had 2 very inappropriate crushes.

Gary Neville
Edwin Van der Sar

<hangs head>

No, not Gary Neville, talks like he's got a permanent cold, Gary Lineker definitely!!!
I had a thing for Tim Howard too (everton goalie) but not since he's grown that ridiculous beard.

You're one sick puppy !

TaliZorahVasNormandy Mon 25-Aug-14 04:08:53

My lust for Gary went on for 18 years.

The Special One is quite tasty...

Keletubbie Mon 25-Aug-14 07:54:27

That's disgusting.

However, Jose Mourinho is utterly delicious.

I love Arsene. Whenever he gets annoyed, he flaps his arms by his sides like a penguin. We used to have season tickets right behind the bench, when you could only see the back of his head you could still tell his expression by his body language.

I know a couple of women who think similarly, and many more have thoughts about Jose Mourinho.

icky poo.
No no no no no

ShelaghTurner Mon 25-Aug-14 10:35:03

Yes I could go with that. There is a certain tingling when he gives his post match interview... (also a Gooner)

shakethetree Mon 25-Aug-14 10:42:43

I can't say you're being unreasonable because beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but honestly, if he was the last man on earth I still couldn't.

Jose Mourinho on the other hand......Mmmmm

pandarific Mon 25-Aug-14 10:50:05

I feel your pain. No idea who he is but he's quite dishy in a 'cultured gent' sort of way. ;) (My inappropriate crush of the minute is Sue Perkins, and I usually like men.)

I do not share your tastes
but i do have a video for the thread
