In which Moss FK midfielder Lars Ã˜vrebÃ¸ goes straight to the top of any list marked ‘Own goals you wish you’d scored at the other end.’ I also enjoyed the woefully contrived build-up play of HamKam’s No.22, Roman Kienast. He looks like a lumbering, shitter version of any Prem right winger. I understand he’s currently [...]
Possibly fake but the keeper’s body language suggests otherwise. See also: Goal celebration diver misses the target The gayest goal celebration ever?
A witty Villa fan’s attempt to deface a poster of the club’s ex-skipper. Fail And so Gareth Barry joins the sorry ranks of British football traitors, along with all the other Judas Iscariots who had the nerve to leave one football club to join a different football club. And he only gave them 11 years [...]
I bet Claudio Reyna never had to put up with any of this infomercial shit when he was playing in England. Poor chap. Perhaps this is what prompted him to quit New York?
Fifa gets it wrong again Your starter for ten… Q. Which crap R&B star claims he has been chosen by Fifa to be the “musical director” for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa? Clue: it’s not Craig David (it’s worse than that). Think you know the answer? The painful truth -Â God, I desperately hope [...]
Old Henrik, he’s still got it Balls…Â check. Head… check. Nice that the other guy (Jon Persson, who plays for Brommapojkarna, I believe) saw the funny side. [@ 101GreatGoals]
Werder Bremen reach Uefa Cup final, thanks partly to bizarre bobble Damn that pesky “papierkugel”! Hamburger SV, quarter-final conquerors of Manchester City, were on course to make the Uefa Cup final, but fate intervened, in the form of a scrunched up ball of paper. Just as Hamburg defender Michael Gravgaard was about to hoof the [...]
Who will win the battle of the Champions League bridesmaids? Someone got busy on Photoshop. A smug Man Utd fan, perhaps? [Thanks to Jamironad for the tip] Seen any more funny football virals? Drop me a line, Pies would love to hear from you
I love the smell of irony in the morning
May taste bitter… It’s a moist sponge cake coated with disappointment and filled with false hope. Delicious.
A Mexican player has been suspended from South America’s Copa Libertadores tournament, for pretending to cough and spit in an opponent’s face – gestures interpreted as threatening to spread swine flu.
“Hi, mum! I’m famous,”
Even Gary Glitter didn’t look this suspicious when his plane landed in the UK!
Blues left red-faced over yellow shirts
“We need to go in relaxsched, we need to go in with also belief.” What? Steve McClaren’s fake Dutch accent is on the go again. This guy is such a plonker. The accent is bad enough (there are loads of annoying people who accidentally imitate the accents of those they talk to), but to start rearranging your syntax…. Macca – you’ve got issues!
Wrexham striker Jefferson Louis scores a lovely goal in his side’s victory over Altrincham. He is substituted before the end and obliges the pitchside reporter with a frank analysis of why he came off. A little too frank for Setanta Sports’ liking! This is the television gods punishing those who think it is acceptable to break away from the match to interview someone during the game.
Commentator discovers hard way that mass loss of life is not particularly funny
Arsenal star embarrassed in restaurant Cesc Fabregas was dining out with two female friends at Soho club Studio Valbonne when his bill of almost Â£300 arrived. A witness said: “He tried one card, it failed. Then another. It failed again. After much faffing he sent an aide out to get cash.”
West End to see a “Theatre of Dreams” show based on Becks? A songwriter is talking with West End producers about staging a musical based on the life of David Beckham. No suprise really – in fact, I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner. Librettist Mark Archer has written a collection of songs for the musical, [...]
Proof, if proof be need be… “Shirts are more generous” is just a polite way of saying “our sorry collection of fat-fuck fans told us they couldn’t even squeeze into an XXL shirt”. I reckon these expanding City fans should follow the famously obese Toon Army’s example and go shirtless. [EPL Talk]
Internacional keeper Cleber seems to be angling for a move to Blackburn Rovers as Paul Robinson’s understudy. You see, if Cleber was capable of dealing with a fairly strong knee-high backpass by cleanly volleying the ball upfield, he would probably be a candidate for the Internacional strikeforce. But he can’t and he isn’t. Not a very Cleber boy.
How to offend one billion people First came Ronaldo at the 2002 World Cup. Then, in 2008, it was Spain’s men’s basketball team, followed closely by the Spanish tennis team. And now Argentina’s Olympic women’s footballers have been caught in the act. This photo was published – without controversy, we add – in the Argentine [...]
A legend, do you hear me… Darren Huckerby facts: 1) He comes from the Northfolk team in north-east England 2) He’s a legend 3) He’s responsible for the Greatest Goal Ever 4) “Manchester” play in blue, it seems 5) He’s a LEGEND 6) His wife is too old to be a pop star
Brazil v Argentina, the board-game Olympics That’s one tense game of Jenga… until Carlos throws his toys out of the pram.
