Inspired by Paulinho's goal celebration against Aston Villa on Tuesday night, the Brazilian midfielder and compatriot Sandro have been showing off their dance moves. The Tottenham pair did a bit of a routine for the club's in-house media team.
What's the last thing a goalkeeper wants after conceding? A full-pelt kick in the face from a team-mate, that's what. Notts County keeper Bartosz Bialkowski was treated to just that after Galatasaray scored past him on Tuesday night. Defender Alan Sheehan attempt to hoof the ball away in disgust at the goal but succeeded only [.
This man here is Donnie Moore. He is the official Christian chaplain for the Oakland A's
baseball side and the be-tracksuited, bat-shit loopy fruitcake motivational speaker bought on board
by the US mens national team to preach 'radical reality' and help pump them up and ACHIEVEÂ THEIR
GOALS AND DREAMS!
James Collins scored a hat trick at the impregnable fortress, the Britannia stadium which saw
Arsenal labour to a scoreless draw over the weekend. Seven goals were scored, three in extra time,
as Stoke came back twice to level. Collins had the last answer in the 118th minute right after
Peter Crouch equalized for the Potters.
Swindon saw off Stoke City in the Capital One Cup League Cup last night, coming out on top in a
4-3 tit-for-tat game which saw James Collins sticking away a hat-trick for the Robins, including an
extra-time winner though it was his second goal of the evening which coaxed the most curious
reaction out of manager Paolo Di Canio, with the coco-loopy Italian beckoning Collins over, hoofing
the striker up the arse and sending him on his way.
With Rangers banished from the SPL, poor old Celtic must be feeling rather lonely in the top
tier of Scottish football. However, the Champions League does offer Neil Lennon's side a chance to
go face to face with some of Europe's big-boys, should they make it through the tricky
It's not that long ago that question marks were being raised over Darren Fletcher's chances of
ever playing football again, as a chronic bowel problem kept the Man Utd man out of action for the
majority of last season. However, having already been called up to the Scotland squad this week,
the 28-year-old made an appearance for United in a friendly game against Aberdeen on Tuesday
Things are really hotting up in the Crappyteam Won Cup, the competition no self-respecting team wants to win. After Premier League side Aston Villa attempted to give League Two Bradford a bye to to the final in their semi-final first-leg on Tuesday night, last night it was the turn of European champions Chelsea to give [.
Monterrey beat Chorrillo 5-0 in a CONCACAF Champions League match on Tuesday night thanks, in
part, to a hat trick from 27-year-old Angel Reyna. After Reyna scored his third goal and his team's
fifth in the 87th minute, he celebrated by executing a luchador-inspired move by hopping up on
teammate Abraham Dario Carreno, wrapping his legs around his neck and snapping him to the ground
with a tilt-a-whirl headscissor takedown.
Reading midfielder Danny Guthrie has been fined two weeks' wages after he refused to travel to Tuesday night's relegation six-pointer at Sunderland. The Royals lost the match 3-0. But Guthrie, aged 25, had left training early on Monday after apparently discovering that he would not be in the starting line-up for the match.
When is it going to end? Â news today that Tim Krul, who disclosed this morning he had been told

Gabby Obertan starts the game at Cardiff City this afternoon, after a bright substitute performance
atÂ HartlepoolÂ United on Tuesday night in which he scored a terrific goal. SurprisinglyÂ neither
ofÂ Newcastle'sÂ Senegal top strikers Papiss Cisse or DembaÂ BaÂ is included,Â evenÂ on theÂ bench,
and FrenchmenÂ YohanÂ Cabaye andÂ BenÂ Arfa areÂ also missing from the line up.
Good news form Alan PardewÂ yesterday, after Yohan Cabaye was not even on the bench on Tuesday
night in the 5-1 demolition of Hartlepool United, that the Newcastle manager thinks Yohan will be
just fine. Yohan Cabaye at Euro 2012 should be OK for Spurs game The French International who
starred for France in the [.
We had reported on Tuesday night that Newcastle had put in a bid of â‚¬6M (Â£4.8M) for MathieuÂ
Debuchy with bonuses included, but that it had been rejected, and that Lille President MichelÂ
SeydouxÂ wanted closer to â‚¬8M (Â£6.4M) without any bonuses, for the right-back and was awaiting a
new bid by Newcastle.
David Beckham confirmed he will have a role in the opening ceremony of the Olympics
after he met sporting great Muhammad Ali at the Beyond Sport summit in London on Tuesday night (the
boxing legend's presence appeared to enhance the chances of the 70-year-old playing a part in
Friday's curtain-raiser at the Olympic Stadium).
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- It has been nearly 11 years since the 9/11 tragedy, but the effects from the
events that took place that day are still felt by many across the nation each and every year and
the U.S. men's national team are no exception.
Crew Stadium has been a great home for the U.S. Men's National Team
A sold-out crowd will pack Columbus Crew Stadium on Tuesday night, which has proved to be a
fortress for the U.S. Men's National Team. The United States has posted an unbeaten 5-0-3 record
there since 2000, including a 4-0-2 record in World Cup qualifying.

Arsenal will be looking to continue their good start to the season against a team that has
scored twice against both Man United and Man City, and you could be at Emirates Stadium to watch
all the action LIVE!
Today sees the first round of internationals take place as teams, you know, play against each
other and stuff. And there'll be some goals and corners and yellow cards and red cards, but they're
not all made out of ticky-tacky and they won't turn out all the same.
From an Arsenal point of view you can see the players on duty here and we'll be keeping
everything crossed that they come through tonight, then Tuesday night, without any problems so they
can continue their start to the season with the real football, the football that people actually
Submitted for your perusal, here's a clutch of England dicking around in training ahead of their
second World Cup 2014 qualifying game in the space of five days against Ukraine at Wembley on
A disappointing result for the USMNT in Friday night's World Cup qualifier in Jamaica leaves them
hoping to reverse their fortunes on TUesday night in Columbus or see their qualifying hopes in
If the U.S. team needed any kind of lift following the defeat in Jamaica, they certainly found it
from the fans in Columbus during Sunday's public training session at Crew Stadium.
More than 3,000 supporters turned up to watch the 75-minute session, cheering loudly as the team
entered the field and keeping the energy level as the team went through a series of passing
exercises and small-sided games before concluding with a finishing exercise.
Just two days removed from Friday's disappointing 2-1 loss to Jamaica, Jurgen Klinsmann is left
to figure out just which 11 players he can turn to for Tuesday's crucial rematch against the
'Reggae Boyz' in Columbus.
There were few good performances across the board for the Americans, and some that should lead
to changes in the lineup.
References to lottery tickets are a well worn trope in the world of those who support those
clubs that habitually live below the games breadline. On the whole, those that have come up trumps
with those multi-million to one odds have tended to steer clear of football, but one club has
bagged itself a Euromillions winner, and even this is just another moment of note in a most
extraordinary start to the season for Blue Square Bet Premier club Newport County.
The top two teams in the Eastern Conference battle for first place as the Houston Dynamo welcome
the New York Red Bulls to BBVA Compass Stadium (8 p.m., NBC Sports Network) in a Friday night bout
fit for primetime.
The match -- the first of two consecutive ones between the two clubs -- marks the MLS debut of
New York Designated Player Tim Cahill, who went 45 minutes and drew a penalty kick against
Tottenham in Tuesday night's friendly.
Defender Babajide Ogunbiyi is now a member of the New York Red Bulls and could make his debut as
early as Tuesday night against Spurs. Ogunbiyi was drafted by New York in 2009 but chose to sign
with Denmark's Viborg. "Babajide is a defender with a lot of potential and we believe he can
provide depth to our back line," Red Bulls general manager Erik Soler said in a press statement.
The LA Galaxy played a friendly against Spurs on Tuesday night, giving Robbie Keane a chance to
play against his old club. And Keane decided to reintroduce himself by playing an odd game of "grab
the contents of Jake Livermore's shorts."
Keane was apparently trying to distract Livermore from the ball (well, the other ball) or maybe
he was just preparing for a post-football career as a proctologist.
In a spirited and sometimes sloppily played match, Aston Villa defeated Portland Timbers 5-4
Tuesday night in a penalty shoot-out at Jeld Wen Field in Portland, Oregon. The teams tied 2-2 at

Montreal looks to continue their quest for a playoff berth against D.C. United. (Getty
The make or break part of the season is here. At this point teams can earn a lot or nothing at
all. Most teams are hitting that final stretch of games that will either put them in the playoffs
or will put them in a position to have a high draft pick in next January's SuperDraft.
Luis Robles is a member of the New York Red Bulls after all.
The Red Bulls used their place in the allocation order to select Robles, who signed with MLS
Tuesday night. The club had initially tried to sign Robles during the winter, but when it became
apparent that he could not sign directly with the club and would have been subjected to the
allocation order, the deal came off the table.
Reading manager Brian McDermott almost missed the chance to run the rule over his fringe players after a steward wouldn't let him watch a reserve match. The Royals boss had travelled to Bournemouth to watch his second-string in a behind-closed-doors friendly. But he was refused entry to the stadium when a steward said he couldn't [.
Town's first 3 points of the season are an absolute relief.
When the fixture list came out in June there was a real consideration that we may not pick up any
points for the first 3 games of the season.
I hoped for a draw against Blackburn, but did not expect it, and I fully envisaged us coming home
from Watford empty handed: how could we dare to think about anything else against the 'bogey team'!
Rangers advanced in the Scottish Communities League Cup on Tuesday night at Ibrox. Now playing in
the Third Division, Rangers entered the competition in the First Round. Carlos Bocanegra started

Wallace adding a third in the 47th.
