Arsenal were one game away from a Wembley final, but Arsene Wenger stuck to his guns and played his ‘Carling Cup kids’ (not exactly kids, but a weaker team than he could have started with, anyway) at White Hart Lane. We all saw what happened. And, let’s face it, Spurs could have scored eight or […]

Can’t wait for the official DVD to appear. For now, this will do the job. Via 101GreatGoals

‘Herbert Chapman, Liam Brady, Charlie George, George Graham, Nigel Winterburn, Perry Groves, Nick Hornby, Pascal Cygan, Pat Rice, Arsene Wenger, Gilles Grimandi, Ian ‘Wrighty’ Wright… your boys took one hell of a beating!’ There, that had to be said. More to follow, obviously. I’ve waited almost nine years for this, and I’m gonna make the […]

Sunday Oliseh is currently earning his keep as a BBC pundit for the African Cup of Nations. Ten years ago he was very much in his prime as a player. This beauty from the 1998 World Cup was the goal that eliminated Spain from the competition.

What are the chances of that? All three of last night’s FA Cup third-round replays went the distance, to penalties. Bristol Rovers knocked out hapless Fulham, Barnet beat Swindon, and Derby County fans at last had something to cheer, when their team got one over on Sheff Wed. at Hillsborough. Bristol Rovers players celebrate after […]

At the request of Pies regular Kipp, here is the Christmas edition of Jose Mourinho’s I’m On Setanta Sports you were all deprived of while we stuffed ourselves with turkey. In this episode, meddling Mourinho causes a telephone fight between Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and Rafa Benitez.

1. Germany can’t win it. 2. Argentina can’t win it. 3. Italy can’t win it. 4. Players feel free to shoot from everywhere on the pitch, probably because the standard of goalkeeping is slightly below that seen in the Women’s World Cup. 5. Moaning prats like Emmanuel Eboue, Didier Drogba and Obi-Wan Mikel have to […]

landon_donovan12.JPGIt almost escaped my notice that Landon Donovan – team-mate of David Beckham, husband to a hot wife, hero to millions of not-quite-so-hot soccer moms – just overtook Eric Wynalda to become the USA’s top goal scorer… ever.
Landon notched a penalty in the 48th minute during the US’s 2-0 victory over Sweden (a ‘B’ Sweden, it should be said) this weekend, his 35th goal in 97 international appearances. in doing so, he surpassed Eric Wynalda, who will forever be stuck on 34 goals.

Man Utd have announced that they will not change their plans to observe a minute’s silence in honour of those who died in the Munich air crash (the 50th anniversary of the disaster is on Feb 6th 2008), before next month’s Manchester derby. United had been asked by Man City’s supporters club to opt for […]

It’s just a hunch I have. Put all your money on Tottenham to beat Arsenal in tonight’s second leg of their Carling Cup semi final. Seriously. I mean, the hoodoo has to end sometime, right? And tonight is about as good a chance as the Yid Army is going to get. Robin van Persie is […]

It’s back! Three footballers, each one crudely represented by a set of photo clues. Guess who they are (answers after the click)… 1. 2. 3.

This one is courtesy of the Beeb. As you can see, Everton manager David Moyes is the ginger equivalent of Moe from The Simpsons.
And the similarity doesn’t stop when the duo get angry…

A couple of weeks ago we brought you the hilarious video of a Jose Mourinho puppet hosting the I’m On Setanta Sports phone-in. Now he is back and this time he is on Big Brother too!

Somebody needs to tell German footballers that Christmas is over. The Bundesliga is still on its jolly holidays for another week-and-a-half. For most teams that means training camps, hence a sunburnt Uli Hoeness watching a ball flying into the net in Marbella above.

A friendly in Saudi Arabia was probably the last thing Alex Ferguson wanted, but his Man Utd team turned up with many of their biggest stars, including Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez, for yesterday’s testimonial against Al Hilal in Riyadh. The match was played in honour of Saudi legend Sami al-Jaber, who scored the obligatory […]

Here is Olympiakos striker Lomana LuaLua with exactly the sort of chest control and 25-yard volley that will have Newcastle fans thinking: “Hmm, he never did that for us.” This was the opening goal in a 4-0 rout against arch-rivals Panathinaikos in the Greek Cup.

Maykel Galindo is not a well-known footballer outside of the States, but his story is very interesting. Born and raised in Cuba, he played for the Cuban national team in the 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cup, held in the United States. Having scored in a 3-1 loss to Costa Rica, he sought asylum in the US […]

Yep, it seems most Liverpool fans would be happy to ditch their ‘Yank’ benefactors, Tom Hicks and George Gillett – if only because they could then return to baiting Man Utd fans about the Glazers. Even Steven Gerrard voiced his concern about the state of Liverpool FC last night, after his side drew 2-2 at home with Aston Villa – a result that virtually guarantees another season without the league trophy going to Anfield.

Last week Dudu Aouate got a whack in the eye from team-mate Gustavo Munua (who had replaced him as Deportivo’s first-choice ‘keeper), which left him looking like Frank Gallagher, the shambolic dad from Channel 4’s Shameless. More on the Aouate story at The Offside

Liverpool FC’s fancy-dress Xmas party is now a fixture on the football calendar. Paparazzi desperately try to get snaps of Liverpool’s players in costume. This year’s party was held a few weeks later than originally scheduled, but that didn’t stop the players pulling out all the stops to outdo their team-mates. Club captain Steven Gerrard […]

A Newcastle fan’s eye view of Kevin Keegan’s second coming, before the start of the anticlimactic 0-0 draw with Bolton. Sam Allardyce never got a reception like that.

This morning’s five hottest soccer scoops & rumours… 1. Sven-Goran Eriksson wants to bring Bayern Munich starlet Lukas Podolski (pictured) to Man City. Not gonna happen, Sven. F365 2. Tom Hicks has no intention of selling his stake in his beloved Liverpool. BBC 3. Alex Ferguson in hot water with FA over ‘gestures’ to Reading […]
