AC Milan have completed the signing of Ronaldo from Real Madrid for a fee believed to be in the region of £5 million. The Italian club has taken a gamble on the 30-year-old who was criticised for his World Cup performances, which could be described at best as lethargic, and has been out of the […]

If headbuttee isn’t already a word then it might be soon. Marco Materazzi is in danger of becoming a serial headbuttee! Having already made a bigger name for himself by being "that guy Zinedine Zidane headbutted" than through his footballing prowess, Materazzi has again found himself the butt of a butt. Sampdoria’s Gennaro Delvecchio was […]

Jose Mourinho‘s notes to skipper John Terry are apparently not the tactical masterstrokes we thought… [Rob Parker]

In one of the most predictable moves ever, the Scottish FA have announced that Alex McLeish is to be the new gaffer of the Scottish national side. The former Rangers boss has signed a contract until 2010 and succeeds Walter Smith, who resigned to take over at Ibrox on 10 January. McLeish, who recently turned […]

With everyone mewing about how bad we are at cricket, we fans of the beautiful game can sit back and laugh. Especially when you consider that this man below could probably beat our boys on his own. This man is Brett Lee. Brett promises "I’ll even make you laugh, I’ll even learn some Hindiiiiii" Well, […]

Well, after the weekend’s heroics, the draw has been made for the 5th Round of the FA Cup. Sure enough, there are some tasty looking matches on offer.

Ginger afro season continues on Pies with former Coventry City striker Ian Wallace. As if the haircut was not daring enough, Wallace is also sporting the Sky Blues’ notorious brown away kit.

Sticker Sunday

January 28th, 2007

Welcome back, sticker fans. Pies is continuing its bid to complete Merlin’s FA Premier League Official Sticker Collection by opening three packs every Sunday and giving you a running commentary on how we are doing. Click below to see who we got in this week’s stickers.

Although – as we predicted – the transfer window gossip has been dominated by the big clubs making cooing noises towards Micah Richards and Gareth Bale, both have stayed put so far. That means that the two young full-backs will go head-to-head in tomorrow’s FA Cup tie between Manchester City and Southampton. The BBC has […]

I think we may have had this on before, but it’s always worth seeing again. Thierry Henry scores a wonder goal and just when you think that nothing on earth could match it, the commentator steps up and gives a rousing rendition of the Cornetto advert. Bloody class. Why doesn’t Motty ever do this?

Man City‘s gaffer, Stuart Pearce has admitted to having a "brief conversation" with the Football Association over the possibility of succeeding Peter Taylor as the manager of the England Under 21 side. On stepping down, Crystal Palace boss Taylor said: "Anybody coming in would have to commit a lot to the job." Psycho feels that […]

We’re in the middle of a ginger afro fetish at the moment at Pies. There have been a few over the years, but surely no-one can match the mighty bonce of Noel Brotherston. Noel was a tricky winger, and graced the flanks of Spurs, Blackburn Rovers, Bury, and Scarborough, and won 27 international caps for […]

Michel Platini is the new Uefa president after beating former president – and part-time walrus lookalike – Lennart Johansson in a vote in Dusseldorf. Platini, aged 51, said: "This is just the beginning of an adventure. I’m happy to be able to represent European football. I’m very moved and very happy." Of course there are […]

Continuing our ginger afro theme – and especially for Pies regular Billyo – here is Wes Brown proving you don’t have to be able to play like Carlos Valderrama to pull off the ginger afro on a football pitch. Go Wes! Have you spotted a footballing ginger afro? Let us know so we can give […]

ATTENTION ALL FANTASY FOOTBALL MANAGERS Don’t forget to remove Robbie Savage from your teams before the deadline due to his lengthy lay-off with a broken leg. I know Savage’s injury has come as a blow to many managers in the Pies Fantasy Football League. The question is: how do you go about replacing a man […]

How do you fancy leading out England as a mascot at Old Trafford before the team face Spain on Wednesday 7th February in front of thousands of fans? Sadly, this offer isn’t open to us blokes. However, if you have a nipper aged between seven and eleven years old who is up for it, the […]

The Scottish FA have announced that they are ready to unveil the new manager for the national side (after Walter Smith’s shock exit) on Monday at a press conference. Everyone knows it’s going to be Alex McLeish. If not, maybe they should give this bloke a chance?

Jammy Tottenham have been given a bye into the last 16 of the Uefa Cup. Of course, this is subject to a possible appeal from scheduled opponents Feyenoord. The Dutch club were thrown out of the competition following crowd trouble earlier in the season against French side Nancy. Of course, Feyenoord are certain to appeal […]

As Gary McAllister has chosen 24 January, 2007 as the date to speak out for the first time about his missed penalty against England at Euro 96, Pies is marking the occasion with this compilation of Euro 96 penalties. No Pizza Hut deal for poor old Gary Mac! [Rob Parker]

Italian striker Vincenzo Montella is well on his way to becoming a cult figure at Fulham after three goals in three substitute appearances. And where there’s a cult figure there usually follows a TShirts365 tshirt. Voila! This airline-style top is a reference to Montella’s aeroplane goal celebration and accompanying nickname ( ‘L’Aeroplanino’). Click here to […]
