    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 […]

    El Clasico Was Pretty Classic Yesterday (Videos)

    Thing couldn’t have gone any worse for Real Madrid in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final match against Barcelona at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu yesterday.  Not only did they lose the game by a score of 2-0 – both goals coming off the foot of Lionel Messi – but they would also receive […]

    Dejan Stankovic Scores From Midfield 20 Seconds Into UCL Match (Video)

    Inter Milan had a dream start to yesterday’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final match against Schalke at the San Siro.  Only 20 seconds after kickoff, midfielder Dejan Stankovic gave the home side the early lead when he volleyed a clearance attempt by Schalke goalkeeper Manuel Neuer over everyone’s head and into the net from the halfway […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 2/22/11 — Nicolas Anelka

    Chelsea has struggled thus far this season, currently sitting in fifth in the Barclays Premier League and having already been eliminated in the FA Cup after losing to Everton in the fourth round on penalty kicks.  Perhaps the only thing that can salvage what has been an incredibly disappointing season for the Blues would be […]

    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 […]

    We’ll Give This Cristiano Ronaldo Dive A 9.4 Out Of 10 (Video)

    To any soccer player who has ever had a problem with critics of the game calling those that play it “sissies”, may I just say that you only have yourselves to blame…and Cristiano Ronaldo. Sure, not all soccer players are sissies.  Sometimes they really do get hurt, but find a way to tough it out […]

  • Nicolas Anelka’s Goal Celebration Is The Epitome Of Douchebaggery

    Nicolas Anelka’s Goal Celebration Is The Epitome Of Douchebaggery

    I hated Nicolas Anelka before, when he thought he was too good to be playing for France’s 2010 World Cup squad.  And after this goal celebration, I think I hate him even more now. For those who don’t get it, allow me to explain.  After a heated exchange between himself and head coach Raymond Domenech […]

    Man U’s Antonio Valencia Breaks Leg During UCL Action (Video)

    Manchester United fans may be suffering the pain of a home draw to Rangers yesterday during UEFA Champions League action, but their degree of suffering pales in comparison to the pain experienced by Man U winger Antonio Valencia following this tackle. Immediately after the tackle, Rangers’ defender Kirk Broadfoot signaled for the trainers and was […]

    Jan Lecjaks Finishes With Ease…In His Own Net

    Sometimes I just don’t get these soccer players.  When they are trying to score what appears to be a sure goal, they will often put the ball several feet wide.  But then when they are attempting to steer the ball clear of their own goal, it somehow finds the top corner of the net. I […]

    When Soccer Celebrations Go Bad (Video)

    Lately we have been providing our readers with plenty of amazing goal celebrations, thanks to the creative folks from Iceland’s Stjarnan FC.  However, we should warn you that not all of these post-goal celebrations go off without a hitch.  And with that being said, we take you to Ukraine, where a goal by Oleg Gusev […]
