Backheels, superlative flicks, diving heads, jinking runs, six goals… prior, you wouldn’t have thought that we were talking about a Newcastle match would you? Well, for those of you who missed last nights UEFA Cup match between the Magpies and AZ Alkmaar, have (most of) the goals here. Newcastle V AZ Alkmaar  first half goalsUploaded […]

Steve Morrow. Remembered for only one thing. Being unceremoniously dumped on his head after scoring the winner in a cup final for Arsenal and nearly perishing. So, what better way to relive the moment than with Baddiel and Skinner taking the piss out it? [Mof Gimmers]

There is nothing like a funny chant at a ground to make you realise how wonderful football can really be. Sometimes chants become famous in their own right… just like "There’s only two Andy Gorams!" after he was diagnosed with schizophrenia or the brilliant "You’re not as good as Christmas" sung at Jermaine Easter recently. […]

Cast your mind back to a time when England used to play well in friendlies, and when your folks would let you stay up late to watch the highlights on the Beeb. Well, if that was you in the early nineties, then you’ll recall the marvellous Sportsnight that would feature things like Tony Dorigo’s England […]

The Carling Cup final and now this… I know loads of non-Arsenal fans who will have chuckled out loud when PSV equalised at the Emirates last night. You want to shake Thierry Henry and his talented chums and shout: ‘For God’s sake, we know you’re all brilliant players, but just stick the ball in the […]

Here’s a snap of Cristiano Ronaldo impressing Canadian supermodel Daria Werbowy with his ball control/sharp suit. She is laughing at how much gel he has in his hair, and probably saying to him, ‘Do that dive that you always do…’ It’s taken from a shoot in the latest issue of US Vogue, no less. Maybe […]

Munich didn’t muck about, did they? Less than 11 seconds after Madrid kicked off and the ball was in the back of their net, thanks to a cool Roy Makaay finish – that, my Pie-eating friends, is a Champions League record. Watch out for the impressive powers of concentration shown by Roberto Carlos. Nice one […]

1 Why is it Ballack & Shevchenko can do it against Europe’s finest, but not against the likes of Wigan and Charlton? Must be very frustrating for Chelski fans.2 It’s never a good idea to headbutt the pitch. Just ask poor Mikael Silvestre.3 Celtic have got some very talented kids who should be proud of […]

You couldn’t make this up (see screenshot): As seen on ESPN, this glorious Carry On-style headline details alleged bribery by the Slovak FA’s acting Secretary General, one Vladimir Wanke (tee-hee). The story itself is roughly 98% less interesting than the headline, which is a work of genius.

Liverpool must be buzzing today. They’ve just beaten Barcelona! The European champions for crying out loud! Well, whilst the players smile away, any neutral who watched the game must be wondering why they bothered. With most of the press being, shall we say, kind to Rafa & Co, the same can’t be said for the […]

You thought that Cristiano Ronaldo was the player most likely to set a record for the amount of step-overs? Think again. Check out Amantino Mancini’s million step-overs before rifling the ball home for Roma as they swept past Lyon in the Champions League last night.

Start rubbing your disbelieving eyeballs. There is some incredible news. Builders of Wembley Stadium, Multiplex, could hand over the keys to the new Wembley Stadium as early as Friday, according to BBC Sport. BBC Sports News Correspondent James Pearce says building work is almost complete and the FA Cup final is almost certain to be […]

With Liverpool taking on the mighty Barcelona in tonights Champions League grudge match, it’s worth showcasing the Catalonians tangerine away kit. For the first time ever, the Barca shirt features a sponsor, but rather than sully their kit with a McDonalds golden arches or somesuch, they got a nice charity adorning the front. Well, KitBag […]

Attention football fans. It would seem that there is a Steve Marlet imposter knocking around. Do you remember him? Used to play for Fulham? Well, this bloke in the video looks like him, and indeed, there was a Steve Marlet who played for both Fulham and Lyon (who this goal was scored for)… but this […]

West Ham United‘s season goes from bad to worse after it was revealed that the police are set to make investigations into the club. Before you start, it won’t be for criminal defending, but something rather more serious. From shambles to shameful, the Hammers season hit a new low on Sunday when large groups of […]

I love ‘soccer goals’, especially when they are as good as this 50. A great way to kill 22 minutes of your lunch hour…

"The danger for Liverpool is if they think they have already done the hard work by winning in Spain… We are the defending European champions and we will not relinquish the trophy without a fight." Ronaldinho As much as I dislike some of Barca’s stars, I would never write off a team containing Ronaldinho, Eto’o […]

The wags at T-shirts365 don’t miss a trick. In this case, the trick is producing a t-shirt called ‘The Craig Bellamy School of Golf’, just days after Bellamy showed the world his swing. Ouch, it’s zeitgeisty! Available in green, red or white, for the princely sum of £14.99. BUY IT

In beating Swindon 3-0 at the weekend, Stockport County notched up a ninth consecutive victory. A very impressive run, but all the more impressive because in those nine games they have conceded no goals. Not one! Zip, nada, nicht, zilch, nil points etc. That’s a Football League record, so big congrats to everyone at the […]

1 Dimitar Berbatov, West Ham v SpursA lovely, lovely free-kick from one of the Prem’s most stylish forwards. Even Paul ‘Kryten’ Konchesky couldn’t use his massive Skeletor head to keep it out of the net.

Why didn’t Paul Konchesky commit a professional foul on Jermain Defoe and stop a likely winning goal for Spurs (see video)? Yes, he would have been sent off, but he would have probably earned a precious point for his club. Gary Neville sure as hell wouldn’t have let Defoe run that far and take a […]

Definition of irony, no.98648: David Beckham injures his right knee after colliding with advertising hoardings. The incident happened during Real Madrid’s 1-1 draw with Getafe at the weekend. Becks miscued a cross near the goal line and ran into hoardings behind the goal. Doh. He will undergo a knee scan today, but looks 99% certain […]

Yawn. Do you even care that Fergie has told Jose to ‘button his lip’? The newspapers and main football sites seem to think it’s a big story, but to be honest, it bores the pants off me. Is there anything less interesting and more predictable than two football managers engaging in so-called mind games? The […]

That’s not a headline I thought I’d ever write. As reported in the Guardian, several football stars have signed up to the Mayday for Nurses campaign and agreed to donate their wages for 13th May to help nurses in financial difficulty. Nigel Medicore Reo Coker, Paul Robinson, Ryan Giggs, Gary ‘shop steward’ Neville and Micah […]
