In no particular order, and not including goalkeepers (for the record, just five goalies have played every minute of every league game this season: David James, Robert Green, Brad Friedel, Pepe Reina and Marcus Hahnemann), here are the six hardest-working players of the 2007/08 campaign, in terms of minutes played: Stephen Kelly (Birmingham City) The […]

For the second time in a week, David Beckham has attended an LA Lakers game. The first time, he hung out with racing drivers; he was also caught sneaking a look at a cheerleader’s arse. On Sunday, he took sons Brooklyn and Romeo along to see the Lakers defeat the Denver Nuggets 128-114 in Game […]

Chelsea’s Frank Lampard and Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard should both be fit for tomorrow night’s Champions League semi-final at Anfield. Which is nice. F365 Jose Mourinho has finally agreed to manage Inter Milan. Not only that, but he wants to snatch Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba from Chelsea. The traitor. The Sun Striker Samuel Eto’o […]

Sir Alex Ferguson is getting on, Arsene Wenger hasn’t won anything for three seasons, Rafa Benitez seems pissed off at the whole Hicks vs Gillett/Parry circus (can you blame him?) and Avram Grant can do no right, even when he does no wrong. So which of the big four’s gaffers do you think will leave […]

It seems a foregone conclusion that the Premier League will lose one of its greatest characters/moaners this summer. Jens Lehmann has made no secret of his woes at Arsenal, and has had no problems in voicing concerns about those who upset him. Pies looks at Jens’ guide to making friends and influencing people.

In which King Kahn, or Genghis Khan, or whatever nickname you wish to bestow on him, bites the neck of Dortmund’s Heiko Herrlich. The incident happened during a title decider between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in 1999. Dortmund raced into a 2-0 lead but Kahn’s moment of vampire-inspired madness stung Bayern into life and […]

Fortunately for Kevin Ellison, the referee doesn’t even know what day it is never mind who has just blasted the ball into his head. And cheeky chappy Ellison then signals for the official to be substituted.

Ashley Young The Aston Villa starlet was in outstanding form as he pulled the strings and grabbed a brace in the 5-1 derby win over Birmingham.
Carlos Tevez Scored a vital equaliser against Blackburn to keep the title race in Manchester United’s hands.

An amazing goal by King Kev against mighty Man Utd (wearing blue!) at The Dell… er, except it wasn’t. The linesman flagged for David Armstrong’s offside, thereby cruelly robbing KK of a truly wonderful strike.

Liverpool must repay £31.5 million to banking institutions in little more than a year or risk having to sell Fernando Torres and Ryan Babel! Yeah, can’t see that happening. The Times Avram Grant gives the silent treatment to newspaper journalists after Chelsea’s win at Everton. Daily Mail Hicks vs Gillett, round 1,268: George Gillett issued […]

EVERTON 0-1 CHELSEA Chelsea goal Essien 41 The title race is still alive, thanks to a gritty performance by Chelsea. Winning at Everton is no easy feat, so Avram Grant’s team deserves a lot of credit for scratching out a result, especially without Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack or Frank Lampard in the line-up. Everton, for […]

Ah, you can never start a rivalry too young… Here, Sofia Nati of Germany is tackled by Leah Galton of England during yesterday’s U15 women’s International friendly match between England and Germany at The National Sports Centre in Bisham Abbey, England. I have looked everywhere online for the result but can’t find it – if […]

What a cheeky little goal from Lee Sharpe. The main reason it is forgotten is that United only drew the match 2-2, while Barcelona won 4-0 at the Nou Camp. The Red Devils were left behind at the group stage as Barca and unlikely table-toppers IFK Goteborg progressed. I can’t wait to see these pair getting together on Wednesday night (even it is minus Lee Sharpe!).

How will Manchester United win the Premier League title? Just like that. Avram Grant was coming over a bit Tommy Cooper on the touchline last night as Chelsea picked up three points with a 0-1 win at Everton.

CELTIC 2-1 RANGERS Celtic goals Nakamura 20, Vennegoor of Hesselink 90 Rangers goal Novo 55 With normal time over, and the score tied at 1-1, Rangers must have thought they were going to snatch a vital point that would have virtually wrapped up the SPL championship.

New signing for our 10 tramp lookalikes – Eintracht Frankfurt’s Ioannis Amanatidis. The scruffy git.


If you believe the newspapers, Roman Abramovich has set aside a £100m transfer fund to bring in new players in the summer. That can buy at least five or six world-class talents (or one Cristiano Ronaldo). Which players should Avram Grant (or Frank Rijkaard, or whoever’s in charge of Chelsea then) have at the top […]

You don’t get too many long distance own goals, let alone ones that are scored with the head. But Parma’s Stefano Morrone achieved this considerable feat against Juventus last night. Excellent finish, but I bet he couldn’t do it again if he tried.

Valencia centre-back lexis Ruano (he’s in there somewhere) celebrates with teammates after scoring his team’s second goal during the Copa del Rey final between Valencia and Getafe at the Vicente Calderon stadium on 16 April 16, 2008.

The crime ‘Heyyyyyyyy! It’s me, Frankie Boy!’ Here’s Lamps, strolling through the set of West Side Story Fulham, clad in black leather jacket – with collar up, naturally – and 1980s shades.
