    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 […]

    Inter’s Samuel Eto’o Headbutts Opponent (Video)

    Sunday’s Serie A battle between Inter Milan and Chievo Verona may not have shared a similar magnitude to the 2006 World Cup final match between Italy and France, but there was one shocking similarity between these two games.  For that similarity, we turn to the 37th minute, where Samuel Eto’o was looking to channel some […]

  • Soccer Swing And A Miss (GIF)

    Soccer Swing And A Miss (GIF)

    Only in soccer would we see a player fall to the ground in agony after whiffing on a shot attempt.  I guess when you are a superstar like Steven Gerrard, you simply don’t miss such opportunities.  And when you do, the only way to hide from the embarrassment is to grab your leg and drop […]

  • Nice Save Keeper…Insert Sarcastic Face Here (Video)

    Nice Save Keeper…Insert Sarcastic Face Here (Video)

    Yesterday we provided readers with a glimpse of what may very well have been the greatest worst goaltending FAIL ever.  Well Jaroslav Halak, it appears as though your reign atop such a dubious list has lasted a whole one day, thanks to this soccer keeper from Sinop of Brazil’s lower league. During a semi-final first-leg […]

  • Selfish Nani Spoils Brilliant Cristiano Ronaldo Goal (Video)

    Selfish Nani Spoils Brilliant Cristiano Ronaldo Goal (Video)

    Cristiano Ronaldo’s ball-handling skills are no secret, and while the Portuguese soccer star has scored plenty of brilliant goals throughout his career, it appeared as though he was on the verge of netting one of his prettiest during yesterday’s friendly against Spain.  After speeding down the wing with the ball at his feet, Ronaldo quickly […]

    You Will Never See A Worse Miss Than This! (Video)

    Sure, this guy may play for Qatar, who are currently ranked 109th in the FIFA World Rankings behind powerhouses like Kuwait, Syria and Oman, but that is still no excuse for hitting the post while standing two feet in front of an empty soccer net. Less than a minute into extra time during a Round […]

    A Whole New Meaning To The Term “Drum Roll” (GIF)

    The fans provide the drum, an the riot police supply the roll. Their batons and shields may protect riot police from a lot, but I guess one thing they can’t defend against are those unexpected flying drums.  I guess we should chalk this one up as a victory for the hooligans.

    Picture Of The Day: Get A Room Boys

    Is it me or is the arm of Carlos Tevez elbow deep inside Rio Ferdinand? It really isn’t all that surprising to see something like this during a soccer game.  After all, this is the same sport that has previously brought us the doggy-style, crotch-biting and lip-kissing goal celebrations.  These two Manchester rivals don’t appear […]
