We did feature this Classic Moment on Pies many moons ago, but it is worth seeing again as Liverpool and Arsenal meet at Anfield tomorrow. Michael Thomas bundles his way through the Reds’ defence to win the league for Arsenal in the most dramatic circumstances. “It’s up for grabs now!” [Rob Parker]
Welcome back to the tranquil haven that is Haiku Corner. Take off your shoes and let us sit a while, to contemplate the more spiritual side of the beautiful game. This week, our Zen-like focus is on Steven Gerrard, the bestest midfielder in the whole wide world ever, who collected his MBE medal on Wednesday. […]
Even if you don’t speak Spanish, you get a great idea of how Spanish TV saw the game. Watch out for the awesome karaoke version of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ at the beginning of the video.
1 Why is it Ballack & Shevchenko can do it against Europe’s finest, but not against the likes of Wigan and Charlton? Must be very frustrating for Chelski fans.2 It’s never a good idea to headbutt the pitch. Just ask poor Mikael Silvestre.3 Celtic have got some very talented kids who should be proud of […]
Liverpool must be buzzing today. They’ve just beaten Barcelona! The European champions for crying out loud! Well, whilst the players smile away, any neutral who watched the game must be wondering why they bothered. With most of the press being, shall we say, kind to Rafa & Co, the same can’t be said for the […]
"The danger for Liverpool is if they think they have already done the hard work by winning in Spainâ€¦ We are the defending European champions and we will not relinquish the trophy without a fight." Ronaldinho As much as I dislike some of Barca’s stars, I would never write off a team containing Ronaldinho, Eto’o […]
The wags at T-shirts365 don’t miss a trick. In this case, the trick is producing a t-shirt called ‘The Craig Bellamy School of Golf’, just days after Bellamy showed the world his swing. Ouch, it’s zeitgeisty! Available in green, red or white, for the princely sum of Â£14.99. BUY IT
News reaches us that Premiership chairmen are going to be forced into cutting ‘obscene’ ticket prices because fans have just about had enough of being the victims of daylight robbery every weekend, and as a result, football has reached a tipping point. Two top-flight chairmen have expressed the same view, both of whom predict price […]
Q: Who put the ‘ouch’ in Crouch? A: Blades striker Rob Hulse, whose stray boot connected with the blonde giraffe’s face during Liverpool’s 4-0 defeat of Sheffield United on Staurday. There goes Peter’s catwalk careerâ€¦ The injury to Crouch was the only downer of the game for Liverpool, although I’ve read several reports claiming that […]
As I said to my flatmate last night, I love Barca as a club â€“Â€Â“ great fans, great history, the fact they refused to sully their shirt with a sponsor for so long etc. â€“ but they have the most annoying players in the world: Ronaldinho raises his chubby arms â€“ is it me or […]
With some people saying "It’s all lies. I’d be more ashamed to believe it than anything. If you could conjure up an eyewitness report or a police record, that’d be great" about the Craig Bellamy story on these very pages, it’s worth pointing out that today, Rafa Benitez is set to hand out the punishment […]
This recent photo, courtesy of Liverpool’s official website, proves, beyond any doubt, that the alleged Riise/Bellamy karaoke incident is a drizzle in a teacup. Look how happy they are!
Is Craig Bellamy the dimmest man on the face of the earth? His move to Liverpool was a slightly risky one on Rafa’s part, but we can all presume that he thought Bellamy may pull his finger out and keep his head down as his stint at Liverpool would probably be his last chance to […]
I know it’s a cheap gag, but I couldn’t resist. Surely the Liverpool fans must be a little embarrassed by all this takeover business?
Hopefully, a bright and red future ahead of us. I shall reserve my comment to later and not jump to conclusion. But it is exciting times indeed. [The Red Cauldron] Liverpool, with a proposed new stadium and increased transfer funds, will be looking to firmly place themselves in between Chelsea and Manchester United – and […]
Rafa Benitez referred to Everton as a small club at the weekend and it ruffled some feathers. The Spaniard said after Saturday’s 0-0 Merseyside derby: "When you play against the smaller teams at Anfield you know the game will be narrow." Everton chief executive Keith Wyness responded on the club website and said: "Benitez is […]
One of Pies‘ all-time favourite moments! A worse for wear Peter Crouch sings along to Ini Kamoze’s Here Comes The Hotstepper before posing for a photo (seemingly unaware that he was being filmed all the while!). [Rob Parker]
The Liverpool manager shows why most footballers favour footwear with studs as he takes a tumble in last night’s 1-2 victory over West Ham! [Rob Parker]
Yesterday, as a treat for their suffering fans, West Ham put some half time entertainment on for their game against Liverpool. Bonnie Tyler belted through a rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart in an attempt to stir the home fans into action. Hilariously, this backfired massively when Liverpool emerged enthused by the power of […]
Lucas Neill has decided on the latter. Despite interest from Barcelona after his impressive World Cup and a contract on the table from Liverpool, Neill has made the distinctly sideways move from Blackburn Rovers to West Ham. The reason? If we are to believe the rumours the Hammers will be paying the Australian international Â£60,000 […]
Fans who have experienced the thrill of an away match will know how addictive it is. The trip down, the pre-match pints in a strange pub, being in a strange ground. It’s like a holiday with a football match stuck in the middle of it! However, loads give it a wide berth because they can’t […]
With the news that Djimi Traore has joined Portsmouth from Charlton for Â£1m, let’s look at the great man in action. Slightly unfair to compare him to Zizou… but funny all the same. [Mof Gimmers]
I don’t think we’ve featured this classic footballing moment before, but Bruce Grobbelaar and his wobbly legs is always worth seeing again. You surely need balls of steel to do something like this in a European Cup final… still, it paid off for Grobs as Liverpool beat Roma to lift the trophy.
Rafael Benitez has issued an apology to Liverpool fans following their 6-3 trouncing by Arsenal at Anfield last night: "It is a bad night for us all and all we can say is sorry to the supporters." He avoided blaming Jerzy Dudek for his first-half blunders, saying: "Now is not the time to point the […]
