    Amir Sayoud Gives Us The Worst Penalty Kick Ever (Video)

    Shooting a soccer ball on a goal that is 8-feet tall and 24-feet wide from only 36-feet away doesn’t seem like such a tough task for anyone with a reasonable amount of athleticism in their genes.  I therefore can’t help but wonder why professional soccer players, who have tons of athleticism and practice the game […]

    Here Is A Montage Of Man U’s 8-2 Beating Against Arsenal (Video)

    Oh how the mighty have fallen.  There was a time when Arsenal was competing with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea for English Premier League supremacy, having won league championship in 2002 and 2004.  Now it appears as though the North London club has turned from championship contender to league whipping boy, […]

    Soccer Player Pimp Slaps Ref In Paraguay (Video)

    Don’t like the call? Slap the linesman in the face. Open-handed. Like a pimp. That’s what Brazilian soccer player Diogo did recently in a match between the Montevideo Wanderers and Danubio of the Paraguayan Primera Division.

    Another Vicious Soccer Headbutt (Video)

    What is it with soccer players and headbutts? In a Champion’s League play-in match between Spain’s Villarreal and Denmark’s Odense, a rather minor run-in between two players quickly turned unnecessarily violent. Andreas Johansson of Odense took down Borja Valera of Villarreal. The foul was probably worth a yellow card, but it wasn’t especially vicious. After […]

    Yet Another Sick Goal By Lionel Messi (Video)

    The other day we told you about how Barcelona soccer deity Lionel Messi barfed right in the middle of the playing field, then scored a terrific (but average, for him) goal. That was against Real Madrid in the first leg of the two-game Spanish Supercopa. Well yesterday, in the second match against Real, the little […]

    Even the best soccer player in the world sometimes gets overwhelmed by the stifling summer heat.
