Ads with footballers are typically cliched and formulaic. Valencia's Christmas video is anything but, opening as though we're about to embark on a Tim Burton film the soundtrack does wonders. Or maybe it's appropriately Batman's true underground lair.

And all simply to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

Thierry Henry, the Perfect Villian

The Offside - MLS at related • 1 view

I want to make it clear that all things considered, I believe Thierry Henry signing with the Red Bulls is a good thing for MLS. It is another step in the right direction. Stadiums will be full, fans will be excited and perhaps the average New Yorker might even acknowledge the validity of MLS.

However, the biggest benefit Henry brings to our domestic league is that he is so easy to cheer against.

One of the main rules of the Intertoobz is that thou shall not repost, (or cross-post or go postal or something like that. I've never been very good with rules.).

I'll give you a second to let that headline sink in. It's strong, you can't deny that.

Serie A Sister : Ibrahimovic And Robinho Are AC Milan’s Very Own Batman And Robin

There's something about Ibrahimovic and Robinho high-fiving one another that speedily conjures up the Batman and Robin theme song. Sure, you're now desperately trying to force images of Ibrahimovic in spandex and a cape out of your minds (your welcome) but despite all his individualistic glory, Ibra has thankfully, remembered that his superb goal in the 65th minute was only possible through his teammates, Robinho and Urby.

Bari are staring down the barrel of the Serie A rifle after becoming the latest victims of the Ezequiel Lavezzi and Edinson Cavani show. A goal in each half from Napoli's version of Batman and Robin was enough to ensure that Walter Mazzarri's men left Puglia with all three points to leave Bari cut adrift at the foot of the table.

DTotD: Sergio Ramos elbows Diego Costa in the face

Dirty Tackle at related • 0 views

Before Cristiano Ronaldo scored with his seeing-eye backheel against Ray Vallecano, Sergio Ramos was lucky not to get sent off even before the half hour mark. He picked up a yellow card in just the third minute, putting him on dangerous ground from the start. And about 15 minutes after that, he casually employed a defensive technique that is usually frowned upon (keyword: usually) by elbowing Diego Costa in the face.

Well, judging by the things people say when they're standing down below me, I reckon the feller who sculpted me must've made a pretty good job of it. Y'see he probably thought to himself, Hmmm, it's Old Big 'Ead I'm working on here and he could've adjusted the sizes accordingly. I'm glad he got it right, even though I have to rely on what people say when they walk past to know whether I'm looking all right or not.
