Fergie reveals real reason why he loves the Champions League “The Wednesday night atmosphere when you, maybe, go to Madrid and Barcelona. You can smell the cigars and there’s perfume wafting down from the stands. It’s wonderful, it’s different. I love it. “You go to Milan and everyone’s so stylish. Every woman who passes you […]

Leaked photos show champions’ next shirt. Possibly… It’s a bit naff, no? But it does tie in with Nike’s recently launched “V” range of sportswear, so there’s every chance it’s not a fake. Another variation on this theme, with a different collar, is also doing the rounds. Check it out below…

This nostalgia-tinged dispatch just in, from our sister site, Anorak… “As a young lad, Old Mr Anorak liked to settle down with his junior pipe and slippers, reach for his monogrammed Gurkha knife, and cut open a paper packet of Wonderful World of Soccer Stars stickers.

A heavyweight clash of the England captains Steven Gerrard v John Terry (Group C) A very tough opener for England’s skipper, against a former England skipper who has just won the Football Writers’ Player of the Year award. Sorry, JT, but Stevie G will win surely win this one… won’t he? Vote below…

Rangers star’s antics get Aberdeen player sent off Kyle Lafferty pretended to be headbutted by Aberdeen’s Charlie Mulgrew during Saturday’s SPL match at Ibrox. Lafferty fell to the ground as if he’d been properly nutted, when in fact Mulgrew hardly touched him. Very poor show, Mr Lafferty. Watch the incident below…

Gender equality yet to reach Russia, clearly “If my wife’s car drive into group of gypsies, will there be any damage to car? Very nice!” God love Andrey Arshavin and his old-school, Borat-esque sexism. In an interview with the Daily Mail this week, the Russian refused an opportunity to at least pretend that he thinks […]

Who’s more valuable: a great striker or a brilliant keeper? David Villa v Gigi Buffon (Group B) The second game in Group B is a David v Goliath match-up: little David Villa against the imposing massiveness of Gigi Buffon. Who you got? Vote below…

C-Ron is a funny guy After Man Utd’s 0-0 draw at home to Arsenal, a result that saw United win the league (congrats to Fergie and co. – you deserved it), Ronaldo grabbed the mic from a Sky reporter and proceeded to interview Anderson, who is one of his best mates at the club. The […]

The opening fixture in Group B Kaka v Diego (Group B) (Group B: Kaka, Diego, David Villa, Gigi Buffon) Tough bracket, Group B, and we kick off with an all-Brazilian clash. Kaka’s form has dipped a bit since 2006/07, while Diego’s career is on the up - he has been superb for Werder Bremen in the […]

One is a scary control freak, the other is a video game character Nice shoulder pads/hat combo, Mrs Becks. Not intimidating in any way. More Shit Lookalikes

How many stars can you spot? The best football song/video I’ve seen this season, no contest.

Get up, son As far as I can tell, this incident took place during a game in the Czech league between Sparta Prague and FC Tescoma Zlin (please correct me if that’s not right). Using my amazing powers of deduction, it seems that a Sparta player barged into a ball boy. The ball boy then […]

United’s performance against the Prem’s strugglers is the key to their success this season… As Manchester United prepare to win the Premier League against Arsenal – an act of rubbing it in not seen since Monica Lewinsky left the Oval Office – we wonder if, well, they won’t. This season so far, United have won […]

Leeds striker complimented opposition defender “He tries to chat with you during the game. There were times on Saturday when he was complimenting me on my game saying things like ‘good header’ and ‘nice tackle’. “I didn’t know whether he was winding me up or trying to put me off but it was very strange.

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 - God, I desperately hope […]

What’s going on here? You tell us… As good a keeper as he is, Pepe Reina is clearly in the wrong profession. We’ve already seen that he’s a terrific public speaker. Here, he shows us his acting skills, albeit only in a viral for adidas’ 12th man campaign.

Choose your winner in the second match in Group A The inaugural Best Player in the World World Cup kicked off yesterday, with a very tasty clash: Cristiano Ronaldo (pre-tournament favourite) v Fernando Torres. As it stands, Nando is set to pull off a shock win - at time of posting, the Spaniard has 48% of […]

Ouch, that is nasty This is a leaked photo (montage) of Arsenal’s away kit for the 2009/10 season. First thing you notice… it’s blue, like the sort of blue worn by bitter rivals Spurs. Second thing you notice, it looks cheap and nasty. That’s what I think, anyway. Some of you might dig the colour and […]

This new clip suggests Ronny has an eye for his team-mate’s tackle Of course, C-Ron is not heterosexual or homosexual or even bisexual – he’s Ronaldosexual (Pies ®), which means he really only loves himself.

YOU decide who is the best footballer on the planet Vote for me! Vote for me! Nothing gets football fans going as much as the question, “Who’s the best player in the world?” So let’s stop all this idle pub chat and sort it out… Pies is proud(ish) to announce the first ever “Best Player […]

Who’s the most improved player of all? Find out below… 5. Glen Johnson (Portsmouth) With the confidence gained from a few good outings in an England shirt (Fabio Capello rates him, it’s clear), Johnson has been the stand-out player in a decidedly lame Portsmouth defence. There is a new composure and maturity to his game. […]
