Italian football is making me sick at the moment. Match fixing, rioting than lead to the death of a policeman, the debacle that followed when the San Siro was opened without proper security, and now, Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini refusing to apologise after making derogatory comments about Fiorentina’s Romanian striker Adrian Mutu. Zamparini was furious […]

Today Valencia and Inter Milan will find out if they are to be punished by Uefa for the huge fisticuffs that ensued after their Champions League tie. Valencia duo Carlos Marchena and David Navarro and Inter’s Nicolas Burdisso, Ivan Cordoba and Maicon were also charged with gross unsporting conduct. Uefa’s Control and Disciplinary Body will […]

The pitch: high-school soccer team is losing 2-1 with less than five seconds to play. The goalie (the one in orange) rushes out to help his team-mates snatch an equaliser and bangs in a wonder volley from 30 yards just as the clock reaches zero. Only in America baby!

As reported in The Sun, Jose Mourinho will join Real Madrid as head coach this summer, but only if Frank Lampard comes too. The paper claims The Special One is resigned to leaving Chelsea this summer – he has already declared an interest in managing Madrid some day – and wants to build a Real […]

Henry luvs Arsenal 4eva

March 13th, 2007

He may have made his stomach fall to bits by playing whilst injured, but contrary to reports, Thierry Henry insists that he hasn’t played his last game for Arsenal. The Gunners captain has said that he will stay with the club "for life". Henry, now out for the season after he buggered up his groin […]

Most British football fans are on very good terms with disappointment, shattered dreams, false hope and heartache. As this poignant video shows, every loser wins (in a weird way). So Nick Berry was right. Btw, how much fun is it to laugh at big Carsten Jancker’s tears? Answer: Lots of fun. Thanks to our German […]

Joey Barton’s making headlines again, and again for the wrong reasons. The Man City midfielder/serial troublemaker has reportedly been arrested on suspicion of assault and criminal damage. Barton was questioned by police over an alleged argument with a taxi driver in Liverpool, that took place earlier this month. Merseyside Police confirmed that a 24-year-old Widnes […]

Rumour has it that Bradford are keen on taking Stuart McCall back to the Bantams in a managerial role. Let’s hope he performs better on the touchline than he does when he’s seen wobbling around and falling off cars. Still, not a drop spilled. A legend.

I don’t quite know why Tennis behemoth Goran Ivanisevic is playing for Croatia. One can only assume that it’s some kind of charity match. Anyway, for a big lug like him, it’s a half decent finish from the big man… albeit with the help from some shoddy goalkeeping.

Only Jose Mourinho could escape a fine after calling Mike Riley a "filho da puta" ("son of a whore") during yesterday’s FA Cup quarter-final tie against Tottenham. The Chelsea manager was caught by television cameras using the phrase towards the referee at half-time, but Riley did not mention any incident in his report and told […]

They should really rename this the Premiership Cup, shouldn’t they? When is a non-Prem team going to reach the last four again, let alone the final? Anyway, this is how this season’s semi-final draw shapes up: Blackburn Rovers v Chelsea/Tottenham Watford v Middlesbrough/Man Utd Well, Chelsea/Spurs and Man Utd have been kept apart, which is […]

1 Ugo Ehiogu, Celtic v RangersIs that really Ugo Ehiogu? If so, where did he find the skill to manage this finish? Most out of character.

If you’re one of the many football fans who also likes a bit of hot leather-on-willow action, then Pies has just the site for you: The Googly is Shiny Media’s sparkling new (well, revamped) cricket blog. It’s like Pies only with smaller balls – not that we like to boast about the size of our […]

Big designer sunglasses: check. Chunky scarf, carefully tied around the neck: check. Obligatory LA baseball cap: check. Size 0 ex-pop-star wife: check. Crappy NHS walking stick: ch… hang on a minute, shouldn’t Becks really be wielding a pimp-style Versace cane, rather than this wholly unfashionable support? OK, so he’s buggered up his knee ligaments, but […]

Spurs v Chelsea wasn’t the only thrilling 3-3 draw this weekend. Spain’s big grudge match also came out even, thanks to the magic of the marvellous Mr Messi. This excellent video shows Messi’s every touch in that game, including his memorable hat-trick:

Bouba Diop’s Senegalese shirt dance has to be my favourite, but all of them are worth watching (some inspired music choices in there too)…

I’d like to see Craig Bellamy & John Arne-Riise perform this camp classic at a karaoke night, preferably with both dressed in sailor outfits. It would be good for the game. Football/soccer needs more shameless gayness.

Even if you don’t speak Spanish, you get a great idea of how Spanish TV saw the game. Watch out for the awesome karaoke version of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ at the beginning of the video.

In the Lens – Leverkusen match, Monterrubio scored this peach of a lob to kick start the French sides victory in the UEFA Cup. What strikes me about this goal is that no-one seems to try these anymore, with strikers preferring to try and drill it under the ‘keepers body. So Monterrubio, we salute you […]

Look at Ronaldo. What’s he up to? Is he being a great ambassador for the Brazilian national team? It doesn’t look like it does it? In fact, you could argue that he’s being very crass indeed. Anyone care to explain what he’s up to? [Mof Gimmers] Thanks to Sammy for alerting me to the wrongness…

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 […]
