All Prem corner takers should watch this video, taken during a recent clash between rivals Galatasaray and Fenerbahce:

And you thought you had it bad sometimes!?

This is a bit like the conveyor belt on The Generation Game: Coin… lighter… flare… cup… cup… coin… cup… plastic seat.

Turkish football rocks.

    The plastic seat was the best part. I wish we had fans like that in America…

    They need to work on their riot shield technique.
    I’m sure the contents of the projectiles are the same as those in Azteca stadium: urine. Hazards of the profession.

    Its funny how FIFA will fine teams for teams chanting and hurting people’s feelings but throwing things is considered normal.

    Throw piss on people and FIFA is cool with it. But be mean to certain players and all hell breaks loose.

    this is so…..WRONG!

    i like the way that corner kick taker puts the ball onto the corner –
    with a rain of debris (of water bottle and torn plastic seats) – carefully placing the ball and coolly walk away – and saying like “damn this is worst than last season”
