Ron wiggles his hips and BOOM! Unlike so many speculative wonder strikes from distance, Ronaldinho’s goal at the Bridge required daring, cheek, pure instinct and vision – as Clive Tyldesley said, “You didn’t see it coming”. No other player could have scored it, and that’s why I love this goal. Shame about Barcelona’s sickly away […]
Ex-ref says Roberto Rosetti was right to show red card to Man Utd player That’s right folks, Poll says Fletcher deserved to be sent off in last night’s CL semi. The Scot will now miss the final. In his Daily Mail column, Poll wrote:
Athletic power v pure skill. Who ya got? Chelsea parked the bus at the Camp Nou and just about got away with it. Cue moans about negative football from the Barcelona camp. Fair enough, but there was no way Guus Hiddink was going to engage Barca in an open game of football. And 0-0 looks […]
May taste bitter… It’s a moist sponge cake coated with disappointment and filled with false hope. Delicious.
Sky Sports legend tells it like it is Go Jeff. Glad someone has the balls to take the weasel Alves to task. Fine player, serial diver. Bonus vid! Jeff goes wild on Championship D-day…
Yah, real good now One likes pancakes, killing people and Marlboro cigarettes. The other is Arsenal’s goalkeeper. Thanks to Kipp for this one. Yah. More Shit Lookalikes
The best reaction to United’s walk in the park “It was 11 men against 11 babies. We never doubted ourselves.” Patrice Evra gets cocky after the event “It is the most disappointing night of my career. I felt the fans were really up for a big night and to disappoint people who stand behind the […]
Last night’s game reviewed in handy list format 1. What sound does a one-armed man clapping make? Or the sound of a massive anticlimax? I imagine it’s similar to the noise inside the Emirates after 11 minutes, when the game was effectively killed off by C-Ron’s 40-yard free-kick (great strike but Manuel Almunia should have […]
Gooners, look away now My 10 conclusions on the match coming soon…
Please can you fix it for me so that Manchester United play Barcelona in this year’s Champions League final.
Twenty-five minutes into last night’s Champions League semi final, Arsenal’s manager faces the harsh reality that his team is not yet good enough to compete at the highest level.
Alex Ferguson knows better than most that Cristiano Ronaldo may move to Real Madrid this summer. Fergie’s first choice to replace C-Ron is Lionel Messi, but there’s zero chance that Messi will swap Barcelona for Manchester.
What does Arsenal’s gaffer know that no one else does?
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.
Rumours abound that Roman Abramovich (pictured above, jumping off one of his yachts) lost a $500,000 yacht in a game of poker. Abramovich’s people have denied the rumour: “The story is absolutely, completely, entirely false,” said John Mann, a spokesman for Chelsea’s owner.
Deliberate FAIL, or not? You decide…
Njanka’s FWG deserved to win this World Cup group game for Cameroon, but Toni Polster equalised for Austria in the 90th minute, the party pooper.
Snapped as Everton beat Man Utd on penalties in last month’s FA Cup semi final.
“Lots of people tell me that I look like him. He has actually influenced my choice of hairstyle and I have even studied the way he smokes so I can hold my cigarette in the same way.”

The tabloids claim that Joey Barton had a huge bust-up with Alan Shearer after Newcastle’s 3-0 defeat at Anfield on Sunday. Barton was sent off for a mindless tackle (not the first time I’ve started a sentence in that way) on Xabi Alonso, prompting Shearer to break out the hairdryer after the match. Barton wasn’t having any of it though.
Crunching tackle… check.
Mazy dribble… check.
Oops. Perhaps Juande should have taken a leaf from Guus Hiddink’s coaching manual.
Man Utd play Boro this lunchtime, but it won’t be a full-strength United who run out at the Riverside. Alex Ferguson has said he will rotate his squad, so one of Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney will be absent from the starting XI, possibly both. Kiko Macheda might start in Ronaldo’s place, for example.
He’s a baby, baby BABY! A couple of days late on this, I know, but then we’ve only went live on Friday. Cut me some slack here. Oh, and enjoy your bank holiday weekend.
This one requires a leap of the imagination… Thanks to Sam Waller for the first Shit Lookalikes suggestion of the new Pies era. Great stuff Sam, though I think Hart looks more like Danny De Vito’s Penguin from Batman Returns. Got a better Shit Lookalike? Email me and if I like it, I’ll post it […]
