With Liverpool taking on the mighty Barcelona in tonights Champions League grudge match, it’s worth showcasing the Catalonians tangerine away kit. For the first time ever, the Barca shirt features a sponsor, but rather than sully their kit with a McDonalds golden arches or somesuch, they got a nice charity adorning the front. Well, KitBag [...]
Attention football fans. It would seem that there is a Steve Marlet imposter knocking around. Do you remember him? Used to play for Fulham? Well, this bloke in the video looks like him, and indeed, there was a Steve Marlet who played for both Fulham and Lyon (who this goal was scored for)… but this [...]
West Ham United‘s season goes from bad to worse after it was revealed that the police are set to make investigations into the club. Before you start, it won’t be for criminal defending, but something rather more serious. From shambles to shameful, the Hammers season hit a new low on Sunday when large groups of [...]
If you think that headline seems like a shameless attempt to boost Pies’ standing in the Google search rankings, then you have a point. However, the headline holds true. Here, as promised, is a very, er, ‘cheeky’ YouTube vid of cheerleaders at a football match in Argentina, as spotted on The Offside and With Leather, [...]
I love ‘soccer goals’, especially when they are as good as this 50. A great way to kill 22 minutes of your lunch hourâ€¦

"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 [...]

In beating Swindon 3-0 at the weekend, Stockport County notched up a ninth consecutive victory. A very impressive run, but all the more impressive because in those nine games they have conceded no goals. Not one! Zip, nada, nicht, zilch, nil points etc. That’s a Football League record, so big congrats to everyone at the [...]
1 Dimitar Berbatov, West Ham v SpursA lovely, lovely free-kick from one of the Prem’s most stylish forwards. Even Paul ‘Kryten’ Konchesky couldn’t use his massive Skeletor head to keep it out of the net.

Why didn’t Paul Konchesky commit a professional foul on Jermain Defoe and stop a likely winning goal for Spurs (see video)? Yes, he would have been sent off, but he would have probably earned a precious point for his club. Gary Neville sure as hell wouldn’t have let Defoe run that far and take a [...]
Definition of irony, no.98648: David Beckham injures his right knee after colliding with advertising hoardings. The incident happened during Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Getafe at the weekend. Becks miscued a cross near the goal line and ran into hoardings behind the goal. Doh. He will undergo a knee scan today, but looks 99% certain [...]
Yawn. Do you even care that Fergie has told Jose to ‘button his lip’? The newspapers and main football sites seem to think it’s a big story, but to be honest, it bores the pants off me. Is there anything less interesting and more predictable than two football managers engaging in so-called mind games? The [...]
That’s not a headline I thought I’d ever write. As reported in the Guardian, several football stars have signed up to the Mayday for Nurses campaign and agreed to donate their wages for 13th May to help nurses in financial difficulty. Nigel Medicore Reo Coker, Paul Robinson, Ryan Giggs, Gary ‘shop steward’ Neville and Micah [...]
I love me some bloopers, especially when they’re taken from the biggest football tournament in the world â€“ much more poignant.

Rumour has it that Ipswich Town’s Darren Currie has secured a two-week trial with LA Galaxy, and should he stay, he’ll of course by playing with a certain Mr Beckham. Looking at this compilation video, the kid looks a bit good…
Emmanuel ‘Evander Holyfield’ Adebayor apparently DIDN’T punch Frank ‘Looks a bit like KD Lang’ Lampard. Pity. After Arsene Wenger started spouting off and shouting "THE LINESMAN IS A BIG FAT LIAR!" to just about anyone who would listen, and then called for Fat Frank to come forward and save his striker. Lampard’s agent Steve Kutner [...]
To celebrate St David’s Day, here is a YouTube vid of one of the greatest moments in Welsh football history. Bellamy’s second-half winner at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium gave Wales a famous victory against Italy in the Euro 2004 qualifying campaign; they still didn’t qualify for the finals though. Doh.
For the past two years, Bulgarian Man Yoo fan Marin Levidzhev (that’s not him) has been fighting in his country’s courts to have his name legally changed to ‘Manchester United’. Magistrates in Bulgaria have just ruled that he can call himself Manchester Levidzhev but not Manchester United. Which kind of defeats the object. Can he [...]
Pele is not just the ambassador for erectile dysfunction. He is also one of the greatest players who ever lived, if not the greatest. I think we’ve been avoiding Pele videos on here for fear of being too obviousâ€¦ however, this video is probably the best on the web at showing his dazzling skills and [...]
Bandwagon hopping anyone? Right this way… Tony Blair has joined in the ticket pricing debate and backed calls for Premiership clubs to lower their ticket prices to make sure fans can afford to attend matches. He said countless empty seats at top-flight grounds in recent years were a clear indication that prices needed to come [...]
