    Soccer’s Double-Elbow Attack Will Not Earn You A Card (Video)

    Of all the things we have seen soccer players being booked for in the past, I cannot believe this is not one of them.  In an effort to create some room for his keeper to come out and snatch a loose ball, Montpellier defender Emir Spahic resorted to the ever-so-dangerous behind-the-back-double-elbow, which is something we […]

  • Matias Concha’s Leg Snapped Like A Twig (Video)

    Matias Concha’s Leg Snapped Like A Twig (Video)

    Second Division German Soccer League highlights typically don’t make the headlines unless they involve images of a leg being snapped in half, much like Matias Concha’s did last night during a match against Union Berlin. In a race to chase down a loose ball, the Bochum defender slid while his counterpart, Berlin’s Macchambes Younga-Mouhani, opted […]

    Picture Of The Day: What’s For Sale?

    You simply will not find a better deal for advertising space than this!  This guy probably spent nothing for that crumpled up sheet of paper, nothing for the marker he used to write “Fresh Juicy Mangoes £5 Each”, and £400 for those front row seats to a Chelsea game.  But now the whole world knows […]

    Swing-And-A-Miss For Twente’s Keeper (Video)

    How embarrassing!  The UEFA Champions League is usually reserved for the best that European soccer has to offer, so you likely wouldn’t expect to see a goalkeeper line up to kick a slow-rolling ball, only to have it hop over his foot and into the net.  FC Twente keeper Sander Boschker was the victim of […]

  • Ruben Ramirez Enraged By Bloodied Face (Video)

    Ruben Ramirez Enraged By Bloodied Face (Video)

    I may have made my fair share of comments referring to soccer players as “sissies” over time, and as much as I still believe that to be the case I wouldn’t want to get in the way of one of those sissies after they just had their face bloodied by a dirty elbow from an […]

    Gary Lineker Admits To Soiling Himself During 1990 World Cup (Video)

    For our disgusting sports story of the day, we take you all the way back to the 1990 World Cup of Soccer in Italy, where after two decades English legend Gary Lineker has admitted to “fertilizing the field” during his side’s opening match of the tournament against Ireland. During an interview with BBC Radio, Lineker […]

  • The Most Violent Soccer Goal Celebration Ever? (Video)

    The Most Violent Soccer Goal Celebration Ever? (Video)

    Soccer goal celebrations are supposed to be a time when teammates can get together and bask in the glory of their accomplishment by either exchanging some friendly taps and shakes, or by putting together some choreographed moves for the fans.  But in Italy, it appears as though they have their own way of doing things. […]

  • Viola Headbutts Ref During Indoor Soccer Match (Video)

    Viola Headbutts Ref During Indoor Soccer Match (Video)

    It appears as though not even the referees are safe from the violent headbutting epidemic that has entered the game of soccer.  At least not while the Corinthians’ Viola is out on the pitch. During a Showbol match against Botafogo, Viola’s hard work in the corner won him possession of the ball, but it also […]

  • Lukas Podolski Delivers A Kick To The Groin (Video)

    Lukas Podolski Delivers A Kick To The Groin (Video)

    Perhaps the only play in soccer more devastating than the violent kung-fu kick to the chest is the ever-so-excruciating front kick to the groin.  Don’t believe me?  Just ask Wolfsburg’s Edin Dzeko, whose midsection was on the receiving end of Lukas Podolski’s cleats during a 1-1 draw with Cologne. Podolski was assessed a yellow card […]

  • More Butt Support! (GIF)

    More Butt Support! (GIF)

    In typical soccer fashion, this guy appeared to be dead as he laid on the ground with an injury while the medics attended to him.  However, he would not play dead for long as the stretcher’s cheap fabric refused to support his unbearable weight and he was sent crashing to the ground. That’s what you […]

  • Schweinsteiger Honks On Muller’s Bobo Following Bayern Goal (Video)

    Schweinsteiger Honks On Muller’s Bobo Following Bayern Goal (Video)

    A few days ago I mentioned that I am really not surprised by anything I see within the game of soccer these days.  The crazy kung-fu kicks don’t surprise me.  The player-on-player biting doesn’t surprise me.  The headbutting doesn’t surprise me.  And I am certainly not surprised by the homoerotic goal celebrations. A couple of […]

  • Spectacular Goal And Celebration FAIL! From Ibrahimovic (Video)

    Spectacular Goal And Celebration FAIL! From Ibrahimovic (Video)

    We will start with the goal, which was perhaps the best this weekend’s slate of soccer action had to offer.  With the score tied nil-nil near the end of the first half, AC Milan’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic continued his stellar play by receiving the ball just outside the 6-yard box, and flicked it up before scissor-kicking […]

  • Colorado Rapids Win MLS Cup On Own-Goal (Video)

    Colorado Rapids Win MLS Cup On Own-Goal (Video)

    What a way to win your first MLS Cup!  Seventeen minutes into extra time, Colorado forward Macoumba Kandji made a move around a defender along the end line before chipping a shot towards the FC Dallas goal, which ricocheted off George John and into the back of the net.  That would be enough to give […]

  • Luis Suarez Takes A Bite Out Of The Competition, Literally (Video)

    Luis Suarez Takes A Bite Out Of The Competition, Literally (Video)

    After all the head butting and kung-fu kicking, I don’t think I will ever be surprised by anything I see in a soccer game.  Not even a little player-on-player biting seems to shock me anymore. So when I witnessed Ajax’s Luis Suarez sink his teeth into the shoulder of PSV’s Otman Bakkal, I simply shrugged […]
