Footage of the Spanish teams’ flight home from South Africa. Probably the only time you’ll ever get to see Pepe Reina, Sergio Ramos and David Villa dance a conga line down an airplane aisle while singing along to Spanish music.
As Paul the Psychic Octopus foretold, Spain defeated Germany in Durban this evening to progress to their first ever World Cup final. There’s no point going into detail about the match itself; anyone reading this probably watched it: Germany played well but just came up against a much better team, and it was absolutely beautiful [...]
After trying my hand at philosophy and medicine, I’ve finally figured out what I want to do with my life: I’m going to be a football journalist.
How on earth is Zlatan Ibrahimović worth €45 million plus Samuel Eto’o? I just can’t understand it. Eto’o has a better goal scoring record, he’s only a year older than Ibrahimović, and he can sometimes make a contribution in big matches, which is something I’ve never seen Ibrahimović do. Sure, Eto’o is reputed to have [...]
I don’t know how football rumours generally begin, but the ones that get reported in the press usually seem to fall into one of two categories: the believable and the delicious. Believable rumours may or may not contain a kernel of truth, but they sound plausible and thus it sounds like the newspaper reporting the [...]
From F365: “If I tell you I have £250m, every player I call will cost three times more,” he said. “When I am manager of a club I do with what I have available and you have never heard me complain about the money that was available. “But as well I do not accept people [...]
I found this on a football forum; it kind of sums up El Diego as a player.
LOL! I watched the game in a pub with my friend Anthony and a bunch of rowdy Spaniards, who celebrated the Catalans’ late equalizer with much leaping about, shouting and smashed glass. Funny thing is, no one even complained about the mess; I think everyone was just so pleased that Chelsea lost, because they’re a [...]
“Never thought i’d say this but… come on arsenal.. If united were playing the nazis with hitler in goal an my ex bird up front i’d be supporting the tashed one an co” From PeteF96, commenting on an article on Football365.
It’s impossible for someone who wasn’t there to say with any certainty exactly what happened, but this Gooner thinks that Hull manager Phil Brown and his staff are full of shit. Even if Fabregas did spit, which he denies, unless he actually spat on the Hull assistant manager I don’t see why it’s such a [...]
Usually, when somebody links to a YouTube video and says “I bet you can’t sit through the whole thing!”, what they really mean is either “this is infuriating” or “this is dire”. Thus, it’s usually possible to sit through the video but it’s not very enjoyable to do so. However, there are times when the [...]
I’ve been burned by making foolhardy predictions in the past, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and say 3-0 to the Gunners. They’ve obviously been squirreling away their good form for the Champions League, and that’s why they’re languishing in 5th position in the Premiership (in b4 “that’s not how it [...]
I was almost glad when he got sent off, since all he does on the pitch is give the ball to the opposition. He’s a terrible player, and the manner in which he was sent off (kicking Modric off-the-ball while already on a yellow card) sums up both his temperament and his style of play. [...]
I never thought a student email would cheer me up, but this one certainly did: To launch RAG Week we are opening the SU Common Room on Sunday afternoon at 1pm to show the following: Spurs v Arsenal 1.30pm, Scotland v Wales (rugby) and West Ham v Man Utd 4pm. It is Common Room policy [...]keep looking »
