We’ve decided to take a look at some of the most highly represented foreign nations and ask you to vote who is the best ambassador for their country – starting with a list of top ten Brazilians who’ve brought the beautiful game over here.

We’ve all had a go at asserting our masculinity by punching one of those bags at the fairground to make the bells go off but for this guy it’s just some extreme heading practice…perhaps he’s Glaswegian!

52629977.jpgMan mountain and Easter Island lookalike, Jaap Stam, has called an end to his playing career because of injury and a lack of focus.

Gothenburg defeated Trelleborg to secure their 18th Swedish league title. Surprisingly, Sweden’s most famous club had not been champions since 1996. This video shows how they did it, plus post-match shenanigans where the players celebrate in the dressing room by wearing hats made out of tinsel. Lovely.

May 1993 Roberto Baggio of Juventus in action during th Uefa Cup Final match between Juventus and Borussia Dortmund. This photo is taken from Juve’s home leg in Turin. The Italian side won 3-0 at home and 3-1 in Dortmund, to secure a comfortable victory. Baggio scored twice in Germany; his namesake Dino (no relation) […]

“Sven spots Nancy and Ulrika sitting together in the crowd!”

How long before Frank Rijkaard, the master of the well-aimed spit, signs Addo for Barcelona? The PSV midfielder/defender shows a lot of phlegm potential in this incident.

Fabien Barthez, the clown prince of goalkeeping, offers to hail Paulo Di Canio a taxi during an FA Cup match between West Ham and Man United. What was he thinking?

June 1986 They don’t make players as cool as Socrates and Zico any more. Socrates – is there a cooler name in football history? No, there isn’t – apart from Zico, perhaps. Anyhow, here they are at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, celebrating Socrates’s winning goal against Spain in Group D. Either that or […]

Listening to The Guardian’s Barry Glendenning talk on the paper’s Football Weekly podcast about about how much his mate hated playing under Gary Megson – Megson reputedly made said player trade in his Porsche for a shitter car – made me think that perhaps I was being a bit harsh on Bolton fans, who didn’t […]

But, while there were probably better strikes than Tevez’s first goal against Middlesborough, it was the build up that finished with a backhell pass from Rooney in the box that wins our vote.

76780358.jpgIt’s been quite a year for Gareth Barry, he’s gone from international occasional to England’s most consistent performer and now there are rumours that Chelsea are preparing a £15m bid to bring him to the Bridge.

Stevie Gerrard and Cesc Fabregas staked their individual claims for the Premier League’s best midfielder yesterday with inspiring performances and a goal apiece that split the points. But, which one would you prefer in your team?

Tabloid hacks with the ability to put two and two together – there are some out there – have naturally decided that Juande Ramos, Spurs’ new head honcho, will raid the changing room at his former club Sevilla. Which all means that we’ll be seeing the likes of Fredi Kanoute and Daniel Alves playing at […]

In which Gus Poyet, Tottenham’s new sidekick, inflicts some awesome ‘karate goalness’ on Sunderland. And what a sublime chip from Gianfranco Zola to set Poyet up. Now, if Gus can only teach Jermaine Jenas to do that at Spurs, he will be on to something.

HEROES Rob Green Saved a last-gasp penalty (pictured) to snatch a point for West Ham at Pompey. Surely Green now has to be taken seriously for England’s No.1 shirt instead of Paul Robinson? Cesc Fabregas Showed off the full extent of his freakish maturity and talent with a wonderfully authoritative performance at Anfield. Stevie G […]

January 1980 Diego Maradona, aged 19, stretches as he prepares to get out of bed at home in Argentina. Note the teddy bear and I Love Soccer sticker on his wall. Aw, he was just like any other teenager – except he was also the most talented young footballer in the world. And a teddy […]

The New York Giants practice prior to their NFL game (no, it’s not an exhibition match this time) against the Miami Dolphins, which will be played at Wembley Stadium tomorrow. The Giants should stomp all over the Dolphins, who have been abject this season: they have lost all seven of their games so far, whereas […]

Liverpool v Arsenal, Larwo 1-1, Pies 1-2
This is the first big test that Arsenal have faced this season and with Liverpool all but out of the Champions League, it couldn’t have come at a better time at Anfield with confidence low at Anfield.

If you are tempted by the prospect of buying Alan Hansen’s Sports Challenge – one of those interactive DVD-style quiz things – for your PC or console, then don’t. It’s poo, at least according to one reviewer from website RewiredMind, who savaged it: ‘Alan Hansen’s Sports Challenge is an abomination of monstrous proportions. If you’ve […]

Poor old ‘Arry’s face has been fighting a losing battle with gravity for as long as we can remember, not unlike his canine counterpart – watch out Louise, it’s only a matter of until until Jamie does the same

Pro Evo wouldn’t be the same without a few amusing bugs and glitches, so it’s nice to know that the latest version of The Greatest Videogame Series Ever Made still has the capacity to f**k up at strange moments. This glitch is one of the funniest I’ve seen.

Check out this hilarious spoof interview with the former Spurs manager from our friends at Fanbanta


The Fiendish Friday Quiz

October 26th, 2007

1 Partizan, Aston Villa, Real Zaragoza, Parma AC, Osasuna, Toronto FC (currently there on trial).
