This funny incident from New Year’s Day suggests Portsmouth‘s Sean Davis isn’t convinced the contact he made with Tottenham‘s Lee Young-Pyo was forceful enough to require a swallow dive. Davis gives the South Korean a taste of his own medicine, much to the approval of the onlooking Pompey fans! [Rob Parker]

Fulham

Kit Parade: U-S-A!

January 5th, 2007

Fulham fans can celebrate Craven Cottage’s new status as the American Embassy by snapping up the USA national team shirt. With Clint Dempsey having agreed a move to join Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra, and Chris Coleman still keen on Oguchi ‘Gooch’ Onyewu, west London is becoming a home-from-home for exiled Yanks. The retro-style shirt […]

Rangers manager Paul Le Guen has left the club by mutual consent after a difficult couple of weeks at Ibrox. The Frenchman had recently stripped Barry Ferguson of the captaincy after claiming the player was undermining him in the dressing room. Le Guen then gave the armband to Gavin Rae who admitted that he was […]

Imagine this. You’re down the local leisure centre having a kick about with your chums… and then… Zizou turns up and makes a complete chump of you and all your pals. Well, I don’t know if this is what exactly happened, but from this video, we can certainly see what such a thing would look […]

As you can see from this picture here, Wigan Athletic have been suffering when it comes to getting bodies through the turnstyles. Recently, Paul Jewell has been frustrated at the low attendances which saw them cut the price of tickets for the Chelsea game to £15, sparking a virtual sell-out. However, the gate dropped dramatically […]

Fulham are close to completing a six-month loan deal for Italian striker Vincenzo Montella. The 32-year-old is expected to finalise the move later today. Nicknamed Little Aeroplane in honour of his aviation-themed goal celebration, Montella cost Roma €25 million when they bought him from Sampdoria in 1999. Although he has struggled with injuries in recent […]

This simplistic but nice replica of the 1961 Chelsea away shirt is courtesy of legendary retro shirt manufacturers Toffs. This was the style of shirt worn by Jimmy Greaves as he found the net 41 times in one season. The white v-neck with blue trim has found its way into the Kitbag January sale and […]

Mischievous Arsenal striker Thierry Henry plays a prank on a young mascot leaving Ajax skipper Tomas Galasek looking very guilty and eager to plead his innocence! More Funny Old Game served up by Pies here [Rob Parker]

Chelsea

Gianluca Vialli video

January 3rd, 2007

I know what Chelsea need right now. They need someone upfront with power, finesse, guile, predatory instincts and a lethal finish. Sadly for The Stamford Oilers, they’ve already signed that person a few years ago in Gianluca Vialli. Watch this video and imagine how great they’d be with Vialli and Drogba up top. For Chelsea […]

http://www.davidbeckham.com.ar/david-beckham-5.jpg If you believe the gossip, David Beckham currently has two offers if he want to leave Real Madrid this month. There is talk of him going to join the misfits at the Reebok Stadium to play for Bolton Wanderers. As unlikely as that seems, the rumours persist. However, there are now rumours that he could be on his way to…

http://www.4thegame.com/media/00/02/85/benayoun_yossi_whfc_profile_2005.jpg Yossi Benayoun has hit out at West Ham’s performances, highlighting the 6-0 annihilation at Reading. Benayoun, who originally turned down a move to Bolton Wanderers, now 4th in the table said “I am ashamed. I am shocked at the way we played. We played like a bunch of drunks…

A kindly YouTuber has eventually got round to uploading Portsmouth defender Noe Pamarot‘s foot-first assault on Spurs‘ Hossam Ghaly. The sickening crunch on impact indicates it is worthy of Horror Tackle status even if it wasn’t worth a yellow card. Keep your eyes peeled for one of the four teeth Ghaly lost, which can be […]

Jose Mourinho appears to have put an end to Chelsea‘s defensive crisis, and the solution was underneath his nose all the time. The Special One has revealed he is considering playing 55-year-old assistant coach Baltermar Brito (pictured in his original playing days) because of the prices being demanded by English clubs for their players (the […]

Wigan have completed the signing of Norwegian midfielder Kristofer Haestad. The 23-year-old international has joined the Latics on loan from IK Start. Here is a slightly pixelated video of Haestad scoring a scorcher. More Wigan news and features [Rob Parker]

With Chelsea‘s Shaun Wright-Phillips the subject of much transfer spectulation (with the most noise coming from West Ham it has to be said), it’s worth watching SWP in action. Not on a football pitch, but in a restaraunt getting stitched up by football’s very own Snoop Dogg, Rio Ferdinand. Brrapp! [Mof Gimmers]

http://www.bbc.co.uk/tyne/content/images/2006/08/10/julian_dicks_150x180.jpg If you go to the Shepherd and Dog in the village of Langham on the Essex/Suffolk border you can get a well appointed bar with a wide variety of real ales and guest ales. You can also get some forthright opinions on the state of the current West Ham squad from propreiter Julian Dicks.
The Hammers cult hero has launched an attack…

I normally have a little whince when there is a horror injury in football, but I’m strong of stomach and watch on largely unflustered. However, that changed yesterday when I screamed like a girl when Antti Niemi fell on his neck and went all wrong-ways. Well, after being aghast at the whole thing, I was thrilled to hear that he’s been released from hospital after doctors cleared him of any spinal injuries…

Marco Materazzi had a very quiet 2006. Winning the World Cup, but managing to overshadow that by being the man headbutted by Zinedine Zidane. What better way to round the year off than a touchline tussle with the coach of the opposing team? Just like Zidane, Messina coach Bruno Giordano picked up a red card […]

The running stories of the newly opened transfer window seem likely to be the chases for two talented young full-backs. Real Madrid have joined the parties interested in 17-year-old Southampton left-back Gareth Bale. The Mirror reports that Manchester United, Arsenal and Spurs are all waiting to throw £7 million at the Welsh international. It seems […]

Watford have completed the signing of Rangers striker Moses Ashikodi. The 19-year-old former Millwall and West Ham youth team player had not found favour at Ibrox since moving there in January 2006, but impressed during a trial at Vicarage Road. The Nigerian-born youngster has represented England at every level from under 15s to under 19s.

http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2005/writers/jonah_freedman/10/06/world.rankings/p1_terry_1005.jpg Chelsea hope to have John Terry back in action within a matter of weeks, after he undergoing surgery on his back injury. The England skipper has not featured in the Blues’ last three Premiership matches, in which they have conceded six goals and fallen four points behind leaders Manchester United…

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/41757000/jpg/_41757802_robocrouch_getty270.jpg With Liverpool being decidedly average so far this season, January sees Rafa Benitez given the opportunity to flex his Spanish muscle in the transfer market… and with his sights set on David Villa from Valencia, someone will have to make way. It appears that Peter Crouch is all set to be shipped out for a reported £12million… but who is daft enough to pay an inflated price like that?

http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/41636000/jpg/_41636624_pressley220.jpg Former Hearts captain Steven Pressley has undergone a medical at Charlton, but his agent has not ruled out a move to Scottish champions Celtic. The 33-year-old was at The Valley on Wednesday and held talks with Addicks gaffer Alan Pardew. The players agent, Blair Morgan, told the Scotsman: “He had a medical while there but nothing should be read into that. It now comes down to two excellent offers from two clubs – one in…
