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 […]

Tramps Profit hungry New Zealanders are flogging food scraps that David Beckham left behind during his trip to the country on the internet. Fans have put items including a half-empty Coca Cola bottle on auction site TradeMe to cash-in on Becks’ leftovers.

This spoof video perfectly demonstrates the frustrations experienced by a Football Manager addict. The German kid has made the mistake over accepting the job as Bradford City boss. Sit back and giggle.

Our buddies at LG are running a Video Media Talent Award – a competition to find and train two interns to develop skills in presenting or filming/editing with Shiny Media – the UK’s leading video blogging team.

‘Both readers of this blog will have noted the lame gag we used after United drew Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup for the fourth time in seven seasons – namely that the FA must have their balls glued together. Well while that might not be the case – although we […]

A red sash on a white background – River Plate’s kit’s is beautifully simple and instantly recognisable. Now why didn’t I think of that? Peru’s national team has a very similar kit. Buy a Seventies River Plate kit online

Marvel at the sheer range of goals MvB scored during his relatively short career. He really was the complete centre-forward: a ruthless finisher, as good with his head as his feet, fast enough (especially in his head) to get the better of most defenders… there wasn’t much he didn’t do to a world-class standard.

Ajax lost for the first time this season in a shock 1-3 home defeat against NAC Breda. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar’s last-minute consolation was not enough to spare their blushes. A Jan Vertonghen own goal, and goals from Matthew Amoah and Ahmed Ammi secured the win for NAC.

Of course John Terry wants Mourinho to be the next England boss. They enjoyed great success together at Chelsea, and hugged frequently, in a mannish, completely non-homoerotic fashion. Do you want Mourinho though? He would be a better bet than Steve McClaren, for sure, but I worry that he’d get bored with a job that […]

Celtic fans – not to mention manager Gordon Strachan – will have made several toasts to Benfica last night, as the Portuguese side did them a huge favour in beating Shakhtar Donetsk away from home. Benfica’s win ensured that Celtic progressed to the last 16 of the Champions League, despite losing to Milan in the […]

OK, OK we’ll come clean. Although we are sure Chris Gunter is a very talented kid, this is more of a dig at Paul Parker than anything else. The ex-Manchester United and England full-back told FourFourTwo Gunter was: “Already being touted as a right-sided Gareth Bale and although that’s a lot of pressure to put on an 18 year old, the potential is there for all to see.”

This cracking advert for bookmakers Oddset takes stereotyping to a whole new level. Mocked up footage from around the globe shows various football leagues as viewed through the eyes of a cynic/realist.

After scoring a fine goal at struggling Arminia Bielefeld, Franck Ribery ran to the Bielefeld section, where he taunted the home fans, who had been giving him some gentle stick – Reuters Soccer Blog claims that the Bielefeld fans had been singing ‘We have Kamper, who needs Ribery?’, an ironic reference to their playmaker Jonas Kamper.

Guess the three footballers from each set of picture clues:

We have just got rid of one England manager who changed his policies depending what the press and the public said, so we don’t need another one. Besides he is only two rows away from Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon so he would probably prefer a job with the Blues.

Chringle, our Shit Lookalikes specialist, has outdone himself this time. I don’t know what new form of crack you’re on Chringle, but I’d like some please.
