Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is in hot water with gay rights group OutRage! after an alleged homophobic insult during the match against Benfica last night. Scholes appeared to call Petit a ‘f***ing poof’ after being booked for a tackle on the Portuguese international. Peter Tatchell, of OutRage!, said: "We urge Paul to apologise and […]

It’s the news we’ve all been waiting for! Barclays has renewed its sponsorship deal with the FA Premier League in a contract worth £65.8m. Phew, that’s a relief. The new deal will take the bank’s sponsorship of the Premiership up to 2010 (the future!), in a two-year extension to Barclays’ current contract. I don’t know […]

Still makes me laugh.

Former Premier League referee Jeff Winter has named Lee Bowyer, Danny Mills and Tomas Repka as the worst players he had to officiate in his time in the game. He said: "The players I used to hate facing were Danny Mills, Lee Bowyer and Tomas Repka, to name three. Most players I could have a […]

Reading are rumoured to be eyeing up a move for American teen sensation Freddy Adu. The Royals are hopeful of taking Adu on a six-month loan in January ahead of a £5 million permanent move in the summer. Many expected Adu to be playing for one of Europe’s top clubs by now when he burst […]

TShirts365 have come up with an interesting Sex Pistols take on Roy Keane‘s honeymoon period at Sunderland (which presumably went to the printer before Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to Ipswich). The slogan says: "Never Mind The Bollix Here’s Roy Keane." If you are a Blacks Cats’ fan (or even a Mackems’ fan if you are stuck […]

In between a busy schedule of not being named in England squads and fighting off transfer rumours, Matt Le Tissier usually found the time to score a couple of Goal of the Season contenders for Southampton. A prime example of this is his classic goal against Newcastle in October 1993. [Rob Parker]

I firmly believe that Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer series is the greatest in the history of video games. And if you disagree with me, not only are you wrong, but I refuse to acknowledge your existence. I’ve played every one in the PES series, which explains why I’m currently as excited as a small boy […]

Mexico has a hugely talented bunch of teenagers right now (they won the 2005 Under-17 World Championship), and none more so than Giovani dos Santos, a wonder winger who has been compared favourably with Ronaldinho – he even looks a bit like a young Ronaldinho. Barcelona signed Dos Santos at 16. The Mexican, now 17, […]

Including a rare clip of Frank Lampard actually scoring a penalty…

5 ‘Before the match my daughter said: "Beenie the horse wants to sit next to you by the drinks holder on the touchline". It is difficult to tell a seven-year-old: "This is the Premiership, I’m known as Psycho and I’m a hard man".’ Man City boss Stuart Pearce explains the role of a toy horse in […]

John Terry and Frank Lampard are being lined up to appear in a Bollywood blockbuster. The film, titled Jhoom, stars Bollywood heart-throb Abhishek Bachchan (pictured) as a devoted Chelsea fan. It will be partially shot in London and will include footage of the two Chelsea stars in action. Chelseas boss Jose Mourinho, no stranger when […]

A survey of LMA Manager 2007 gamers showed that 71 per cent thought David Beckham should be recalled to the England squad, according to Life Style Extra. Rich Eddy, of the game’s developers Codemasters, said: "Becks has been out on the road himself, talking about being dropped from England and saying he’s gutted. This shows […]

Newcastle to tempt Magnus Hedman out of retirement to cover for the injured Shay Given. Sounds like a good excuse for a picture of his wife to me [The Sun] Quinn and Keane to smash open transfer window to take Freddy Eastwood to Sunderland [Mirror] Kevin Bond to become bung documentary’s first victim [Daily Mail] […]

Cheeky scamp.

Fulham‘s Michael Brown was fortunate to escape without a red card after a nasty tackle on Ashley Cole on Saturday (was that an Arsenal fan muttering something about karma?!). It now seems certain he will not face any further action for the challenge. There is no need for a News of the World exclusive a […]

Yep, tonight’s Portsmouth v Bolton clash has been postponed – Harry Redknapp’s all bunged up and Sam Allardyce doesn’t feel 2 grand… In other news: Footballer’s wife (pictured) wins Miss Bulgaria beauty contest.

Arsenal fans have officially stopped mourning their mediocre start to the season to concentrate on more pressing matters (such as pointing out that Spurs have had an even worse start to the 2006/07 campaign). A 3-0 home win against Sheffield United with their north London rivals losing by the same margin at Liverpool has worked […]

Hmm, JJ’s getting a lot of stick at the moment, hardly surprising after that miss. But does he deserve it? I don’t think so. He’s certainly not the worst footballer in the Premiership. How do I know? Well, here’s a list of 10 worse midfielders, for starters…

Chris Waddle was in it for a laugh, although he has since said of his debut appearance on Top of the Pops: ‘I’m not joking when I say that standing on that stage was more nerve-wracking than taking that penalty [for England against Germany at Italia '90] in Turin. Prattish Glenn Hoddle actually seemed to […]

It’s not the worst miss I’ve ever seen, but Jenas – who, in his defence, had made an excellent run into the box – should really have hit the target from two yards out. Edgar Davids didn’t look too impressed with his team-mate. Of course, Liverpool march up the other end and score the game’s […]

Amusing penalty blooper

September 25th, 2006

Ah, the perils of being a goalkeeper…

Here at Pies we are big fans of player websites. Imagine if Ashley Cole had been able to let off some steam on a website and tell fans what he was thinking instead of bottling it all up to put in his book! Anyway, that’s all in the past now. In the present is DirkKuyt.com. […]
