    Argentine Soccer Fight Includes Players, Fans, And The Police (Video)

    It goes without saying that the Argentine people are passionate about their soccer.  In fact, you could probably make the claim that they share the same degree of passion for the game of soccer as Canadians, especially those in Vancouver, share for the game of hockey.  And at times, the Argentine people can act a […]

    Picture Of The Day: That Looks Like It Hurts

    It is all fun and games, until someone loses an eye. In this case, that someone is Mike Fucito, forward of the MLS’s Seattle Sounders.  His bloody eye was the result of an elbow from Daniel Hernandez of FC Dallas.  Hernandez didn’t receive a card on the play, but he did eventually receive a red […]

    Gianluigi Buffon has won eight Serie A goalkeeper of the year awards, three UEFA Team of the Year honors, one European Footballer of the Year award, a Yashin Award, and most importantly, he backstopped the Italian national team to the World Cup title in 2006.

    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 […]

    Oy Oy indeed! If anyone ever questioned Julian Velazquez’s dedication to his soccer club before, they likely will never do so again after watching the clip below.

    Here Is A Truly Inspirational Story About Panyee FC (Video)

    Their floating soccer field is reason enough for you to watch the story of Southern Thailand soccer club Panyee FC.  However, their ability to overcome the odds of living in a town with no room for a field, and go on to become one of the country’s most successful youth soccer clubs is quite the […]

    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. You can’t quite tell from the video, but apparently Diogo kicked one of his opponents or, more importantly, it […]

  • Another Vicious Soccer Headbutt (Video)

    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 […]

    Euan Holden is the little brother of Stu Holden, midfielder for the EPL’s Bolton Wanderers and regular on the U.S. National Team.

However, […]

    News stories about brawls and riots before, during, and after soccer games are a dime a dozen. Every couple of months, somewhere in the world, some group of unruly soccer fans gets tear-gassed by riot cops after they start tearing up the seats in the visitors’ section. However, we very rarely see anything like we […]

    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 […]
