  • Brazilian Soccer Match Goes On Despite Flooded Pitch (Video)

    Brazilian Soccer Match Goes On Despite Flooded Pitch (Video)

    It is no secret that the people of Brazil love their soccer, but exactly how much do they love it?  Let’s just say that a few feet of water on a soccer pitch isn’t enough to have them hanging up their cleats for the day. That was evident last weekend at the Estadio Jair Bittencourt […]

  • Milan And Bari Give Us The Strangest Pre-Match Warm-Ups Ever! (Video)

    Milan And Bari Give Us The Strangest Pre-Match Warm-Ups Ever! (Video)

    Talk about confusion.  I can only imagine that is what fans at the San Siro were faced with after watching what appeared to be players from AC Milan and Bari taking the pitch for warm-ups and performing some rather strange acts, whether it was dancing, swimming, limboing, or playing frisbee. Despite bearing a striking resemblance […]

    This Is How You Break A Defender’s Ankles In Soccer (Video)

    We have seen the ‘crossover’ being used to break the ankles of an opposing defender on several occasions within the game of basketball.  Every sport seems to have a move somewhat similar to this.  In hockey, some players will use the ‘toe-drag.’ In football, they have the ‘juke.’ As for the beautiful game of soccer, […]

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

    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)

    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 […]

    Clarence Seedorf Is One Sad Man (Video)

    No one appeared to be more emotionally distraught to see AC Milan eliminated from Champions League play today than midfielder Clarence Seedorf. After playing to a scoreless draw with Tottenham in the second leg of their round of 16 match today, Seedorf was simply too sad to take part in an on-field interview, attempting to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 3/8/11 — Lionel Messi

    Barcelona entered the second leg of their Champions League match-up with Arsenal in need of a big performance at Camp Nou if they hoped to continue their run towards the title for best in Europe.  Having lost the first leg in England by a score of 2-1, the Catalan Giants were in need of three […]

    Soccer Player Sent Off For Tackling Streaker (Video)

    Here is a story that will make you ask yourself, “What was he thinking?” During a non-league soccer match in England, a player was sent off for tackling a streaker to the ground. Teammates, members of the opposition and stewards were all pleased to see Dorchester Town player/manager Ashley Vickers wrestle a streaker wearing a […]

  • 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 […]

    Taiwanese Animation Takes On The Ashley Cole Shooting Incident (Video)

    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)

    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!

    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 […]
