Who Ate All the Pies at related • 1 view

While Midtjylland as a collective hardly emerged from last night's Manchester United mauling smelling of roses, the evening proved particularly difficult for right-back Andre Romer.

Tasked with man-marking Memphis Depay, the Danish defender was nutmegged into oblivionby the long-dormant winger, who finally turned in a performance worthy of his bloated transfer fee after idling for the past several months.

There has been something of a clamour among Manchester United fans for Japanese playmaker Shinji Kagawa to be given more of a run in the first-team. And there are likely to be a few more fans in his corner now after this cheeky nutmeg on Steven Gerrard during last night's Capital One Cup victory over [.

Chelsea-bound Belgian winger Eden Hazard has hit back at those who interpreted some of his recent remarks about pre-match training as an indication of a lazy work ethic.

Hazard recently told his Twitter fans that he will be joining European champions Chelsea over the summer and the news has understandably been the talk of the town ever since the 21-year old announced his decision.

Euro 2012: Group B: Netherlands swamp Denmark but the Danes win, 1-0

A moving sea of orange ceaselessly breaking on the doorstep waiting it to fall. But it did not happen as the Netherlands just could not put the ball into goal. Robin Van Persie was particularly egregious, his touch unsure, his finish woeful.

How did Paul Wilson come up with the analysis the Dutch did not win because RVP was stranded alone with the midfield not effectively linking up with him.

The star of this video is The Strongest goalkeeper Daniel Vaca (a good one for our Name Translator: Daniel Cow). He handed a goal to opponents Juan Aurich when an overhit floated free-kick landed perfectly in his hands. Vaca somehow managed to drop the ball. Backwards. Between his legs. And straight into the net.

Clarke Hails Impossible Shot

Steve Clarke believes it would have been impossible for any goalkeeper to save what he describes as a 'very special goal' from Luis Suarez on Wednesday night.
The Uruguay international fired both goals as the Reds progressed to the Carling Cup quarter-finals with a 2-1 win over Stoke City.
But it was Suarez's first - involving a nutmeg on Ryan Shotton and a sensational curl beyond Thomas Sorensen - that drew looks of awe from all four stands in the Britannia Stadium.

Post-Game Hangover: Reflections on DCU @ Revs

The Bent Musket at related • 1 view

It would have been nice to win this one, especially being that it was against DC United. But alas, the chips did not fall in our favor. I think what hurts the most, after watching the replay, is that really just a few inches were the difference in the scoreline. It was just a matter of inches that Chris Tierney's first free kick didn't get past Joe Willis and just a matter of inches that Lee Nguyen's nutmeg shot in the 40th minute drifted wide of the post.

Then all of a sudden Chelsea hoof the ball up to Drogba who holds off Gallas, turns him easily and lashes it past Cudicini into the top corner.

Did the first half happen? Only about one-third of the highlight package of last night's Seattle Sounders 2-0 win are from that first 45 minutes. It includes "highlights" like FC Dallas player Fabian Castillo sprinting by Zach Scott and slamming the ball into the side net. There's Mauro Rosales getting two opportunities on goal from short range and somehow not finishing.

I am happy with Arsenal after Bolton

I was not happy after Villa Why? Cos minus 2 penalties and a fluke goal, we played average at best. We rarely created any real goalscoring opportunities from open play. I am never over enthused with Arsenal when we don't actually play Wengerball.

When we get those slick passing triangles going, opening up a host of chances.
