It's not unusual for a YouTube user to make a six-minute video of a player's individual highlights from the TV coverage of a match. It is a bit more unusual to be able to do that with footage of said player sitting on the bench. But that's exactly what someone has done with the array [...]

There was hilarity on the Real Madrid bench at the weekend when left-back Fabio Coentrao kitted out in his sub's gear took his seat. Everyone on the bench apart from Coentrao seemed to know that he hadn't been named as a sub. Those who were legitimately warming the bench, including Iker Casillas and [.

Not-so-diabolical Diaby, Wenger’s contract, and a Bould question

In episode 6 of the 4th season of ‘Breaking Bad', there is a scene where Skyler Whyte says to her husband, the greatest crystal meth maker in the world, that he could be in danger because of the environment in which he happens to be working. To this, Mr. Whyte comes back with a quip: "You clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in: I am not in danger, Skyler.

Arshavin move is super-confusing + fire in bellies needed against Spurs

All Four One, and One Four All! at related • 0 views

Build-up to North London derbies is usually fraught with a gamut of emotions; excitement, nervousness, disbelieving head-shaking as Spurs go on ego-massaging trips and superior sniggers as they trip on the field. Well, that's what they did until a few years ago at least. This new and improved Spurs are disappointingly far removed from a travelling circus and resemble a football team like few of their predecessors ever did.

Barcelona Lite vs. Barcelona Shite

Sadly, that's what it was. Yesterday's performance by the Arsenal was hardly Barcelona-esque. We were all over the place defensively. Szczesny had one of his poorer games in an Arsenal shirt (notwithstanding the aforementioned defensive hilarity).Honestly, had it been the doughnut stealer in goal, there'd have been a lot of Shabby Singh ‘punditry' about angles and positioning.

The Pros and Cons of Manchester's Exit from Europe

Pros

So, the first pro is fairly obvious - hilarity. It's always funny to watch United lose, especially in Europe where Fergie's ability to influence referees is less pronounced. The fact that they were served up one of the easiest CL groups I can remember makes it even funnier.

Premiership

Liverpool 0-1 Swansea

Goals:
Graham 86'

What an appropriate end to the season. As the Premier League explodes everywhere else, Liverpool fumbled aimlessly and purposelessly before unnecessarily conceding late on. The longest nine months in memory gave birth to this. Glimpses of potential, hints of rebuilding, few and far between blessed high points, but mostly just frustration and disappointment.

The Virtue of Doing Nothing, Or: Why Martin O'Neill Doesn't Need A Transfer Budget (Quite Yet)

Soccer Quantified at related • 0 views
Amidst all the hoopla and hilarity of the season's first managerial sacking in the Premiership - Steve Bruce by Sunderland FC - it's easy to lose sight of the fact that it typically doesn't help to sack the manager. To be sure: there often seems to be a bounce-back in results for teams that appoint a new manager; but statistically speaking, the bounce-back is likely to occur in any case, with or without sacking the gaffer.

I know, I know. Fuzion's doing the weekly Power Rankings for Dynamo Theory now? Yes. Yes, I sure as hell am. For the remainder of the 2012 MLS Season, I will bring you Power Rankings in a way only I can. Yes, that means hilarity and insanity on a weekly basis. Yes, that also means you have to endure my extremely tangent-oriented writing style, and my horrible ADHD thought processes each and every week.

David Beckham may be a family man, but when it comes to winning it seems he will go to any lengths necessary to beat the opposition. Even if they are a bunch of 10-year-olds.

Yup, the 'ole get the cookie from the forehead into the mouth game*

Two nights before the opening game of the 2012 U-20 Women's World Cup, the U.S. U-20 WNT used part of their evening to engage in some team building exercises modeled around the Minute to Win It games.

To no one's surprise, when you put a group of highly competitive individuals into a room with some funny games to play some serious competition will ensue.

Christoph Daum may look like a boring 58-year-old German with a mustache, but the Club Brugge manager has a history peppered with hilarity and debauchery.

Chelsea's 2-0 win in their FA Cup fifth round replay against Birmingham marked something of a new start for the club. Yet another manager has been paid handsomely to make a hasty exit and since he wasn't overwhelmingly popular among all the players, there is likely a refreshed feeling in certain corners of the dressing room.
