Yestereve, with Bayern Munich 1-0 down against Borussia Dortmund and with just five minutes left to play, Arjen Robben pressed his ‘Streets of Rage’ special button and went a-tumblin’ in the area in search of a penalty – which duly arrived.

Robben then stepped up to take it himself and, saints be praised, missed the bugger – not that Dortmund centre-half Neven Subotic had much in the way of sympathy for the floppy Dutchman…

“That’ll learn ya!”

Here’s the cut-out-and-keep GIF version…

Dortmund held on to win courtesy of Robert Lewandowski’s 77th minute goal, which keeps them six points clear of Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga with just four games left to play.

Tense.

    haha yes subotic! Hopefully Dortmund will clinch the title now, good to see them as a force in football again.

  2. fritzwalter says:

    Glad to see someone from dortmund step out of their ‘too nice’ image and say to robben ‘look mate..fuck you’

  3. Mike J says:

    As much as I hate Robben’s histrionics that is bang out of order.

  4. subowho? says:

    a punch in the face will make that serbian douche look prettier.

  5. Abe Froman says:

    @Mike J, normally I am not a fan of that kind of behavior, but Robben is just a piss poor diver and that was not a deserved penalty. I don’t have have much of a problem with it.

  6. Professor Erno Breastpinchd says:

    On the one hand there is Sean Derry taking the Ashely Young dive with good grace and a shrug of the shoulders. On the other hand, there’s this.
    Personally I prefer this and would have dished out a bit of groin boot to that slimey little scrote. God knows how Derry didn’t go all incredible hulk on his arse.

  7. Bill says:

    Dive and fully deserved

  8. Hala says:

    He probably said “I’m sorry, Arjen. Better luck next time!”

  9. frank says:

    fair doos he has a legitimate rep for being a bit extravagant when he falls over but did he really dive here…? keeper got none of the ball, are u all saying you would stay on you would have been able to stay on your feet?

  10. newcassel says:

    Come on Robben’s a c*nt, Subotic is a t*at but that was a pen, no red , no yellow just a simple foul in the box. Keeper was out too slow and took Robben’s leg and none of the ball. F*cking stupid really cos Robben was going nowhere and no need for the keeper to push his luck. Should have narrowed the angle and kept out the shot

  11. Joe says:

    Streets of Rage, classic.

  12. Piesfanfromgermany says:

    Saying it was a dive is just nonsense.

  13. dc says:

    Subotic is basically grew up american, blame it on the trash talk he was raised on in american sport culture

  14. Bill says:

    @piesfanFG Then, how do you explain how Robben’s skeletal muscles lose all leg bone supporting properties before the contact. The keeper withdraws his hands and contact is extremely minimal. From his position Robben could do nothing other than be honest or collapse as he has done many times before winning a penalty, If he had shot the keeper saves it instead he is afflicted with sudden acute short term muscular atrophy. He looked for it and got it.

  15. Golfwang says:

    glad he’s not american.

  16. Tom Jones says:

    It was a clear penalty. I can’t believe how the cunt Subotic didn’t get a yellow card for that. What an absolute wanker.

  17. Zak says:

    Looks like he got enough of him to bring him down to me.
    Also don’t have a problem with what Subotic did. Obviously he was just letting Robben know who is winning the league.

  18. Solihull United says:

    immediately thought of when van nistletroy missed the penalty at arsenal and everyone was getting his face.
    Also Robben takes it like a man, doesn’t show any retaliation or even movement to subotic

  19. Keeper clearly won the wall there, poor refereeing.

  20. swiss mafia says:

    Fair play by Robben, I’m glad he didn’t react to Subotic’s nonsense, and showed he was above it all. Even if Subotic was correct by thinking there was no penalty, that is a childish behavior to say the least. Take the miss, congratulate your goalkeeper, and move on to try and win the match. Getting in Robben’s face like that is totally unacceptable. It’s not like Dortmund never got a penalty they didn’t deserve. Get off your high horse, Subotic.

  21. Partizan76 says:

    You can tell Subotic was raised in Florida, pure class

  22. bob loblaw says:

    defo penalty. no one dislikes robben more then me but it was defo a peno.

  23. OddFuture says:

    @dc Idk if that was an insult, but i have to admit i felt a little american pride when i saw subotic do that. either way, it was the same reaction that i had when that penalty got saved, i absolutely hate arjen robben. im actually suprised he didnt go down clutching his face when he felt subotic’s breath from being so close.
