1. Emmanuel Adebayor
Got stuck in to his Arsenal badge after scoring against Real Madrid yesterday. That was despite rumours he has been seeking a move to AC Milan all summer and/or using such rumours to hold the club to ransom over a pay rise.

2″OLE”GEND takes a well-deserved bow Man Utd legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had his testimonial at the weekend, against Espanyol. He came on for the last 20-odd minutes and despite his dodgy knees, still showed enough class to remind fans inside Old Trafford why he will always be remembered as a true United legend. I’ve written […]

This crazy game involves helping wantaway Cristiano Ronaldo to escape from hospital and the clutches of Sir Alex Ferguson to land his dream move to Real Madrid. The basic premise is that you use the elastic supporting C-Ron’s knackered ankle to catapult him through the hospital window, picking up as many wads of cash as possible on the way. Real Madrid helicopters are on hand to give you an extra lift along, but beware Fergie the Red Baron who will offer friendly pointers such as: “It’s back to the slave boat for you, son.” Click here to play Ronaldo2Real.

Sepp Twatter claims misquote Sepp Blatter has now denied ever saying his infamous Cristiano Ronaldo slavery quote. “I have never said that Ronaldo is a slave,” Blatter told reporters on Wednesday during a visit to Vietnam. “But I said slavery with young people, youngsters that European clubs are trying to get 13, 14 and 15 […]

How not to execute a header… Boof!

Why sign another overpriced midfielder? David Bentley is a good Premier League player. He’s not worth £15m, but that’s another story. Put it this way: none of the big four wanted him, including Arsene Wenger, who ditched him in the first place (albeit with regret). Tottenham would have been better off spending the money earned […]

Keano’s happier than a pig in shit Things we learned that we already knew: 1) Liverpool are a “massive club”. 2) Robbie Keane supports Liverpool. 3) Robbie Keane is 28. 4) Robbie Keane always gives “110%”. 5) Robbie Keane will never forget… er, that London team he used to play for.

It’s happened again… What happened to the goalkeepers’ union? It’s just bad form to embarrass another goalie like this.

Has anyone seen this man’s hair? Seems like Stephen Ireland had enough of the wig jokes and decided to break out the clippers. Wise move.

Something about seeing the words “Reg Vardy” in this environment made me laugh Childish, yes. Funny, ditto.

Newcastle are fools to stand by Barton Joey Barton is a dick, a yob, a violent criminal, a nasty piece of work… whatever, he’s the sort of Neanderthal you look to avoid on a Friday night out, because you know he has a short fuse. Kevin Keegan has given him a second chance, but how many […]

Keane is the final piece in Rafa Benitez’s puzzle I’ve noticed that on a lot of football forums, both Liverpool and Spurs fans are claiming that Robbie Keane is past it; Spurs fans say it because they’re sad to see him go, Liverpool fans say it because perhaps they would rather sign a younger buck […]
