    Camera Catches Fan Smoking Joint During The Rome Derby (Video)

    “Fans getting a little fired up before this one.” That was how The Score described it during their highlight package of Roma’s 2-0 victory over Lazio on Sunday.  I probably would have gone with either, “Fans of both teams came into this one with rather high expectations,” or “Both teams were looking for an early […]

    Battle Of The Goalie Fails: Who Ya Got? (Videos)

    In the red corner we have 30-year-old AIK Stockholm keeper Ivan Turina, whose nonchalant attempt to receive a backpass from a teammate turned into a disaster when the ball skipped past his foot and into the net.  Luckily for him, this was only a pre-season friendly.  That should allow him to join us in having […]

    No one appeared to be more emotionally distraught to see AC Milan eliminated from Champions League play today than midfielder Clarence Seedorf.

    The British sure do take their soccer seriously.  Therefore, it should come as no surprise to see tempers flare on the pitch every once in a while, as was the case this week on two separate occasions during matches from two different leagues. The first one comes from the Scottish League, where bitter rivals Celtic […]

  • The Greatest Set Piece In Soccer History (Video)

    The Greatest Set Piece In Soccer History (Video)

    Is this even legal?  I have seen players tap the ball to begin a set-piece play before, but never have I seen them flip the ball over their head to an oncoming teammate who volley’s it out of the air and into the top corner of the net. The innovation is brilliant, but I’m not […]

    So here is how the story goes.  While lurking around the dressing room at Chelsea’s Cobham training ground two Sundays ago, left-back Ashley Cole pulled a .22 caliber air rifle from a box and began fooling around with the dangerous weapon.  Not realizing it was loaded, Cole shot 21-year-old intern Tom Cowan.  The lead pellet […]

    Nothing Heals Quite Like A Somersaulting Medic (Video)

    Soccer medics are an interesting bunch.  Some would say that most of their appearances on the pitch are pointless, as they often find themselves treating healthy players that are simply faking their injuries.  However, there is one medic from Brazil that has been making each of his journeys to the field worth our while. His […]

    Picture Of The Day: Viva Mexico!

    You’ve got to love those Mexican women.  Smoking hot beyond belief and they don’t mind showing it off in their ripped jeans and skimpy tops as they cheer on their favorite soccer team.  I am quite certain that this beautiful fan of the beautiful game made a few fans of her own by the time […]

    Chelsea has struggled thus far this season, currently sitting in fifth in the Barclays Premier League and having already been eliminated in the FA Cup after losing to Everton in the fourth round on penalty kicks.  Perhaps the only thing that can salvage what has been an incredibly disappointing season for the Blues would be […]

    Lightning Strikes Pitch During Colombian Soccer Match (Video)

    A frightening scene took place over the weekend during a Colombian league soccer match between La Equidad and Atletico Nacional, as lightning struck the pitch, sending several players from both teams to the ground in fear.  One player could even be seen performing the sign of the cross (14 second mark). Oddly enough, the officials […]
