Roman Abramovich has long envisaged a time when Chelsea bring through homegrown talent, so you can imagine his was delighted to see Josh Turnbull, son of Blues keeper Ross, score at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. The toddler picked the ball up on the edge of the box, dribbled into the area, stopped to literally pick [.
PSG's title celebrations were overshadowed by rioting on the streets of Paris. Part of their victory tour had to be cut short, including a planned moonlit boat trip along the Seine river. [Pause to allow you to briefly imagine you're on a moonlit boat trip on the Seine with David Beckham.] Thousands of fans had [.
Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery says he will never talk to team-mate Jerome Boateng again after the Germany international soaked him with beer during the club's title celebrations. The devout Muslim took Boateng's actions to heart, believing he should have known the soaking would not sit well with Ribery's religious beliefs.
Manchester United marked Sir Alex Ferguson's 13th and final Premier League title with an open-top bus tour around the city today. Fergie addressed crowds gathered outside Old Trafford taking time to request fans attend tomorrow's under-21 clash with Liverpool before the bus set off on its trip to the city centre.
Alex Ferguson's farewell speech at Old Trafford by footballdaily1 Sir Alex Ferguson said goodbye to Old Trafford with an emotional speech following Manchester United's win against Swansea in his final home game in charge. Fergie's unscripted talk was sandwiched between the match and United's title celebrations.
From what we've heard in interviews with both father and son, we reckon Paul Ince believes Tom can go to the very top and will be miserly with his praise until he's got a Champions League medal or two in the bag. That would tally with his deadpan response to Tom opening the scoring in [...]
Now I know it has been over a month now since Munich but I just can't help watching the Drogba
header (which is one of the best I have ever seen by the way!), the penalties and the celebrations
I just wondered if any of you are the same as me?
Maybe I am turning into a scouser (living in the past) but to this day I love it and still get a
tear in my eye when I see the replays of us lifting the trophy!
As pre season approaches and as the Euro's come to an end, it will signal the beginning of silly
season with the press linking players with moves left, right and centre up until the transfer
window closes at the end of August. Be prepared to read that Chelsea are linked with making moves
for all sorts of players.
1. It's well known that Manchester City have money to throw around, but coppers aimed at Rio Ferdinand's eye is taking things a bit too far. Bound to fall foul of the Financial Fair Play regulations. 2. Fernando Torres is scoring goals and smiling. That makes at least one person at Stamford Bridge who's delighted [.
Hello and I hope to find you well on this fine Friday. If my powers of prediction are up to the
task today, there will be a twitter breakdown somewhere between 5pm to 12am (Malaysian time) and
10am to 5pm (GMT). We know how Arsenal fans loves new signing and if all stories/rumours are right,
it's pointing out today to be the day the transfer of one Santi Cazorla will be announced.
Good morning to you, a quick Saturday round-up after what has been a turbulent week.
It'd be nice if we could get away from the RVP/Usmanov stuff but that's rather fanciful, to be
honest. There have been some whispers that Robin is somewhat taken aback by the reaction to the
statement, as if there was no expectation of a backlash, but I'm not sure how much I believe
It was an eventful day yesterday in Arseblog Towers. After saying goodbye to the Arseblog Basset
so many months ago, we decided it was the right time to bring in a replacement, and the fuzzy thing
in the picture above is him.
His name is Archer and so far, without any kind of exaggeration at all, he's the best dog in the
So Football is officially dead then – beside images of sideburns, NHS celebrations, Kenneth
Branagh in a top hat, a Somali-born hero, David Rudisha, the lightning bolt and the tranquil
surrounds of 'Eton Dorney', the game has lost its sheen – embattled as it was when Freddie
Flintoff inspired an Embrace song in 2005 and Jonny drop kicked that ball two years before.
Editor's note: The following piece was originally published in November of 2010. In light of
the allegation about Peter Nowak and the Philadelphia Union perhaps risking the health of players,

We all see a little bit of ourselves in Roger Levesque, or at least see something we'd like to
see in ourselves. He's gregarious, approachable, quick-witted, down-to-earth, generous with his
time, humble ... the list goes on. If there's a positive quality to describe someone, you can
probably attach it to him.
No filter, all you need to know before we begin our pre-season preparations in earnest, against
the mighty Sounders. More, after the jump.
CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE.
Right, now that we're past the obvious, we've got work to do. Amidst the celebrations this
summer, Chelsea have set out on a course to reshape the squad through a series of transactions, the
majority of which remain pending.
Up 4-0 against a 10-man Italian side in the Euro 2012 final, Spain captain Iker Casillas made it
that much harder to not like him by asking the official to cut the three minutes of injury time
short and blow the final whistle.
Casillas, who became the first player ever to win 100 international matches and also set a
record by going 509 minutes without conceding a goal in the tournament (beating Italian legend Dino
Zoff's previous record of 494 minutes) with that win, called to the ref and said, "Respect for the
Attempting to wade through YouTube after UEFA's team of fun police has taken stand is akin to
grabbing the ball off Andres Iniesta. A few have snaked their way through most look like they were
produced on an Apple II.
But...Iker's arms must be getting tired.
The celebrations should be rather good too what with them having lots of practice and all.
There was a chance at the half, but that all ended when Italy's third substitute, Thiago Motta,
yanked his hammy four minutes after coming on, at the hour mark. Thirty minutes of catching up to a
brilliant Spain's two-goal margin while a man don just ain't gonna happen, and the celebrations
It was May 8, 2011. Milan travelled south to the Italian capital to play AS Roma. A draw would be
enough. Enough to secure lo scudetto. After 90 minutes of play, the game ended nil-all and the
celebrations kicked off. Domestic success had long alluded the club hailing from Italy's fashion
centre – seven years [.
When Greg Garza scored the first goal of his professional career earlier this month, he was overcome with so much emotion that he couldn't settle on a single way to celebrate it, so he settled on two different celebrations.
The value of some performances transcends the goals, the points or the league table. Spurs victory at Old Trafford yesterday evening was infused with meaning that runs deep and will resonate long after the celebrations die down, although Isuspectthose who were fortunate enough to be there floated home rather than requiring any form of transport.
Normally, blocking a shot by teammate isn't something that leads to celebrations.
But that's just what happened Wednesday night.
Bryan Ciesiulka's shot in the 108th minute hit the back of senior forward Andy Huftalin's legs, but Huftalin controlled the ball and fired a left-shooted shot past onrushing University of Wisconsin freshman goalkeeper Chase Rau to give 10th-ranked Marquette a 2-1 double-overtime victory in a non-conference match at Valley Fields.
There was no other way to title this post. There had been around a million home fans (or so it
sounded) in full voice at the St. Mary's for 92 minutes, and yet this is the line that prevailed at
the end. There have been reservations expressed about this man's move to such a direct rival,
including on this very website, but now it doesn't seem too odd anymore (and
that's not hypocrisy.
After installing a seismograph within the walls of the San Juan stadium the venue of
Boca Juniors Argentinean Cup Final victory last week (Boca defeated Racing Club
2-1) researchers have discovered that celebrations equivalent to that of a mini earthquake actually
occurred at various points during the game.

events that unfolded after yesterday's Open Cup final, we are rather shocked by the fugliness of
the winners' undergarments. Usually we look forward to locker room celebrations (i.e. see April
2011) with glee and HD anticipation.
The Houston Dynamo defeated 10-man FC Dallas in the Texas derby on Saturday night, and they can
thank Adam Moffat for that.
Moffat scored the winner in Houston's 2-1 triumph over rivals FC Dallas on Saturay night in the
first match between the two at BBVA Compass Stadium. Moffat's goal, combined with Jair Benitez
being sent off in the second half, improved the Dynamo to 3-0-1 in their new stadium while
extending FC Dallas' current winless run to 10 matches.
