Moody striker would like spot-kick responsibilty When Inter Milan's Mario Balotelli won a penalty
five minutes into their match against Palermo last night, he obviously felt that was justification

continued to stand next to the ball demanding to take the [.
Real Madrid midfielder doesn't like being called gay Real Madrid's embarrassing 4-0 defeat to lower
league Alcorcon on Tuesday night was painful enough. But Guti had insult added to his injury. He
was hauled off by under-fire coach Manuel Pellegrini at half-time, and upon taking his place in the
dugout an Alcorcon supporter called him gay.

Latics striker locked up Marlon King has been jailed for 18 months for sexually assaulting a woman
in a London bar. The Wigan striker was found guilty of repeatedly groping a 20-year-old student and

Premier League side.
A case of mistaken identity Sir Alex Ferguson has previously joked about swapping the shirts of the
Da Silva twins, Fabio and Rafael, in order to trick officials. But his plans to confuse the

Great Danish striker aired at last For years it has been cited as the greatest football goal you

meant the public [.
Taking weakened Carling Cup sides to a new level Barnsley failed to score during their Carling Cup
defeat to Manchester United, but the net did ripple in injury time when a fan took it upon himself
to bag a goal for the Tykes. Presumably inspired by this Russian fan, a Barnsley supporter ran onto
the pitch to [.
Fans turn up wearing masks that don't feature Eric Cantona's face These Peterborough fans obviously
worked out that the swine flu outbreak at Blackburn, plus the official warning that spitting is
spreading the virus, and the fact that they could find themselves close to El-Hadji Diouf meant
that they were at substantial risk of getting sick!
Naughty Nev's behaving badly again Reprimanded for his celebrations in the Manchester derby,
involved in row with police following last weekend's defeat to Liverpool, and now sent-off during
the Carling Cup tie with Barnsley: Gary Neville's behaviour doesn't get better with age. The jury's
still out for us.
Notts County's new manager is predictable Notts County have appointed Sven Goran Eriksson's former
Manchester City assistant Hans Backe as their new manager. Ex-boss Ian McParland never really stood

You could have fooled us! England and Chelsea captain John Terry and Fulham's Bobby Zamora are best
chums. Despite their clubs' rivalry, the pair are such good pals that they like nothing more than

fishing to relax and help [.
It's gone over his head Stuttgart keeper Jens Lehmann is desperate to get play re-started quickly
as his side chase Hannover's 1-0 lead. That is why he greets the ballboy at the advertising

1. Liverpool might rely too heavily on Fernando Torres, but if you have to rely too heavily on
anyone it might as well be him. 2. This season really is so open and unpredictable. Just when you

French side locked up, stopped from playing matches The players and staff of Paris St Germain have
been quarantined after three players complained they were suffering with symptoms of swine flu.
Ludovic Giuly, Mamadou Sakho and Jeremy Clement have all been tested for the virus after

That's how you do it, lads! Dragan Stojkovic, coach of Japanese side Nagoya Grampus, showed his
players that he could still walk the walk with a spectacular goal from his technical area. The
ex-Yugoslavia international found the net with a beautiful strike. And he did it in formal shoes.
The match officials were quite so impressed and [.
That's not how we celebrate in this country! Players and staff from Hamburg were involved in an

is not good enough for Chelsea.
Hold on to your Ballacks. Frings are getting dangerous The security team responsible for ensuring
the safety of the Germany national team has warned that players will be expected to wear

Man with scruffy beard and tattoos prepares to entertain children Halloween festivities are kicking

Spaniard loves to cut it fine in Europe Rafa Benitez appears to be attempting to re-enact his
side's incredible Champions League group stage qualification of the season before last. That year,
Liverpool relied on big wins against Besiktas, Porto and Marseille in their last three games in
order to qualify.
Get your hands on a Becks book We are a bit late to the party on this one after a bit of a postal

1. OTP thought the most controversial 'outside agents' in the Premier League this weekend would be
Harry Redknapp's security team. Little did we know... 2. Pepe Reina should probably have tried to
save the match ball rather than the beach ball. 3. Unbeatable Chelsea suddenly look a bit wobbly.
4. Tweeting can defeat the Big Four!
Turn your club's misfiring strikers into hotshot Darren Bents The humorous string in the already

be of any practical [.
Sunderland striker benefits from inflatable toy Sunderland took the lead against Liverpool thanks
to this bizarre incident involving a beach ball. The big inflatable was apparently thrown onto the

Sleepless strikers Dimitar Berbatov is expected to miss Manchester United's clash with Bolton

And apparently Diego feels vindicated by this narrow escape Diego Maradona again enjoyed some

decided to [.
1. Peter Crouch's gangly legs are not supposed to be involved in six-yard tap-ins. They were made
for bicycle kicks. 2. David Beckham has brown hair, a ginger moustache and a black beard. What is
that all about? 3. Twin, dwarf, right-footed wingers is probably not a viable tactical option
against decent opposition.
England coach doesn't think Becks was man of the match Fabio Capello took a slight dig at David

An ulterior motive for England keeper's red card? Last time Robert Green faced Belarus it put paid
to his World Cup dream. The England goalkeeper handed the opposition a goal when he injured himself

1. Even great defenders can forget how to defend Rio Ferdinand picked up from his shocker in the

Under-fire coach quite pleased with last-minute winner Argentina coach Diego Maradona knows his

West Ham keeper sent-off for England Poor old Rob Green was sent-off 14 minutes into England's

James had come on to replace Aaron Lennon.
