As you may have noticed from the lack of posts in the last couple of days, Pies is on its Christmas break. We’ll be back in full force, a couple of pounds heavier no doubt, from January 2nd 2008 (my God, the future is here!). Thanks for all your support in 2007 – to Chringle, Clayton, […]

77533448.jpgFulham have gone backwards under Lawrie Sanchez and the club was absolutely right to sack him today. The Cottagers have won just two league games all season and played pretty shit football along the way. They should never have sacked Chris Coleman in the first place, but hey, that bus left a long time ago.

Champions Lyon followed last week’s defeat at Caen with a disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Nice. They maintained their four-point lead at the top of Ligue 1 though as second-placed Nancy also drew 0-0 at Strasbourg.

The Christmas XI

December 21st, 2007

Pies compiles 11 players with festive names.

Welcome to the Pies’ Festive Fiendish Friday Quiz. It’s a bumper edition, with more fiendishly difficult questions than ever to keep you occupied as you count down the hours before you get to leave work for the Christmas break… 1 Slavia Prague, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool, Portsmouth, Aston Villa (current). Whose career? 2 Which English team […]

Brighten up your walls with this canvas print of a 1966 World Cup poster. The canvas features the legendary World Cup Willie and is advertising the tournament being held in England from July 11 to 30.

Back in July we alerted you to the Latin American mullet of FC Dallas’s Juan Carlos Toja. The Colombian’s hair – his tribute to Doors singer Jim Morrison – is so popular with his team-mates that they all want to copy him. That is why the players made sure they had a Toja wig on hand while recording their player introductions for ESPN2!

See if you can tell from this video whether Sampdoria’s sulky striker Antonio Cassono was:
a) not really bothered that getting booked meant he would be suspended for the match against former club Roma
b) distraught at the thought of his impending suspension and felt the need to bawl and stomp his feet like a toddler.

Table-topping Inter Milan extended their lead in Serie A to seven points with a 0-2 win at Cagliari. Julio Cruz and David Suazo were on target for Inter. Second-placed Roma only managed a 0-0 draw against Torino.

Peter Crouch’s sending-off was the turning point. The decision was correct: it’s clear from the clip that Crouch suddenly saw red and had no intention of going for the ball. He wanted to clatter Mikel – wouldn’t you? – and did. And not like Frank Lampard to get a deflected goal, is it?

Everton have named 16-year-old defender Jack Rodwell in their squad to face AZ Alkmaar in the Uefa Cup tonight. The former England under 16s skipper, who can also play in midfield, is tipped to become the next Rio Ferdinand (a backhanded compliment you might say). The youngster is said to be strong, quick and have excellent composure on the ball.

Luca Toni risked incurring the wrath of animal rights protestors by brazenly wearing fur before Bayern Munich’s Uefa Cup win over Aris Salonika last night.

Ajax and PSV stayed first and second respectively despite their match being called off on the advice of the police. The match clashed with a police strike on Saturday and was called off because the safety of supporters could not be guaranteed.

A fascinating little video that reminds us how much professional football has changed in the last 28 years. Hooliganism was a real problem in the late 70s, and few English derbies scared the police more than the Owls vs Blades Sheffield showdown – even when both teams were in the old Third Division, as was the […]

Sol Campbell, still a Judas to many Spurs fans after he left them for Arsenal (Gooners didn’t seem to mind so much when he left them for Portsmouth), called a Radio 4 phone-in to complain about the level of abuse he and other footballers have to put up with. ‘It’s out of hand now,’ Campbell […]
