The awful behaviour of Emmanuel Eboue got me thinking: Which player are you embarrassed to see wearing the beloved shirt of the team you support? As a Spurs fan, I’d nominate Hossam Ghaly, who doesn’t seem to value the Tottenham shirt at all – the fact he’s shit doesn’t help. Nominations please…

This video rather neatly wraps up some of the funniest own goals into a handy five-minute video.

20060626113026.jpgAlan Hansen is about the only decent football pundit the BBC has, and he’s been doing the job for more than a decade; Mark Lawrenson is a poor man’s Hansen, but he’s not as bad as the rest of them, who make up a sorry collection of the bland – Lee Dixon and Gavin Peacock, to name two charisma-free ex-players – and the incompetent.

Despite providing that old school terrace look, the scarves are probably a bit less itchy than the one your dad used to wear to the match.

Seriously, I know Eboue wasn’t in our poll of most hated players in the Prem, but he really should have been. An oversight on our part.
The Ivorian might have been sent off twice over against Middlesbrough at the weekend. Once for a double-slap to the face of Emanuel Pogatetz (he connected with the second slap), twice for a deliberate raking of Stewart Downing’s thigh that could have resulted in a serious injury.

As this video shows, Crissy Ronaldo blatantly cheated to win a penalty against Derby County on Saturday – let’s ignore the fact he got up and took the penalty, when a selfish player would have allowed Carlos Tevez the chance to get a well-deserved hat-trick; the fact is, he conned the ref. All well and good in such a one-sided game, you might say, but that’s not the point. Imagine the furore if it had happened against Arsenal or Chelsea.

It is as you were at the top of La Liga. Real Madrid remain four points ahead of second-placed Barcelona as both sides picked up three points at the weekend. Ruud Van Nistelrooy’s goal gave Real a 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao, while Barcelona came from behind to beat Deportivo La Coruna 2-1.

Lyon have been confirmed as champions of Ligue 1 by the coach of their nearest rivals. In the wake Lyon’s emphatic 5-0 win over Strasbourg and his side’s 2-1 defeat at Le Mans, Nancy coach Pablo Correa said: “Obviously, we can’t catch them now. I never thought we could anyway.”

As promised yesterday, part two of our top football moments of this year continues below… (check out part one) 10 Ricardinho’s worst corner ever Hilarious proof that even Brazilian footballers aren’t infallible when it comes to a good blooper. Read the rest of the list after the click…

Whose career? 2 Only two players have scored for both Liverpool and Everton in the Merseyside derby.

78246212.jpgThe Guardian has a story today that made me chuckle: Rafa Benitez has apparently told his Liverpool players that they can’t stay up until the small hours to watch Ricky Hatton’s boxing title fight against Floyd Mayweather – the fight is scheduled to begin at 4am this Sat/Sun morning. Spoilsport!

‘I played for four years in Belgium and they hate me!’ Didier Zakora, Spurs midfielder Zakora, not the most popular player in Belgium for some reason, was apparently hit by a cigarette lighter thrown from the crowd and had to receive treatment. Paul Robinson picked up a metal bar from the pitch and handed it […]

Colchester United have taken extreme measures to encourage fans to comply with no-smoking legislation. The club’s stadium announcer has been threatening supporters tempted by a crafty fag that they will be forced to listen to the music of Will Young.

He has been dubbed football’s answer to Billy Elliott and a Napoleon Dynamite lookalike. Blackburn’s mystery male cheerleader is known only as ‘Andrew’. He has developed a cult internet following after his appearance on Match of the Day at the weekend. Here he is dancing his socks off during Rovers’ match against Aston Villa.

Cristiano Ronaldo indulges in a spot of fancy Dan-ing on the set of a Pro Evo photoshoot only to be shown up by a teaboy with skills!

It’s the end of the year, so, as the rules of modern journalism dictate, here is an end-of-year list. I hope you have five minutes to read Pies’ favourite football moments from 2007 – no doubt there are loads of moments that you remember that don’t make this list; post an angry comment if that is […]

Inter Milan and Roma have made a break at the top of Serie A after winning games in hand last night. Top of the table Inter followed up victory at Fiorentina at the weekend with a 3-0 win over Lazio. And Roma but themselves five points clear of third-place Juventus with victory over Cagliari. In the weekend’s big match Juve drew 0-0 with AC Milan.

South America – a continent where skills and flair are appreciated and admired. Or not. A match in Peru had to be abandoned after Ancash player Efrain Viafara sparked a brawl by controlling the ball with his backside. His slice of cheek is in the video below.

Wayne Rooney is good mates with Ricky Hatton, despite the fact that Hatton is a massive Man City fan and Roo plays for United – their friendship conquers such tribal divisions. Rooney, who has carried Hatton’s world title belt to the ring before, is absolutely desperate to attend his mate’s fight against Floyd Mayweather in […]
