With the throngs of QPR fans gatheredoutside the club's training quarters being whipped up into a frothy lather over the imminent/inevitable deadline day return of Niko Kranjcar, Sky Sports News reporter Gary Cotterill found a novel way to keep the gurning hordes at bay.
We'll forgive you formissing the Friday night ding-dong betweenSC Eltersdorf and Viktoria Aschaffenburg in the second division of the Bavarian Oberliga (Germany's regional fifth tier), which ended in the two sides hammering out a lively old 4-4 draw.
However, roughly one eighth of the goals were of the "atrocious own-goal" variety, withAschaffenburg's Zamir Daudi somehow conspiring to waft the ball pathetically over his own goal-line despite having two zero-pressure attempts to hack the damn thing clear.
These clips seem to do the rounds all the time but, without checking, they've not been whacked up on Pies before so, with Danny Welbeck leaving Manchester United to become Arsenal's new No.23 after spending pretty much his entire career at Old Trafford, we figured this is as good a time as any to post them.
The English Premier League is quite simply the best league in the world and yesterday at Goodison Park was a fine advert for our game. Two teams fighting for the win, refusing to give up and it turned into a cracker!
I think both sets of supporters headed into the game thinking it would be a tight, tense affair and maybe a goal would win this one.
Well to answer the heading yes and as early as the 9th minute when he handled the ball outside his area with Everton already 2-0 down to Chelsea.
And he could easily have been also dismissed for his confrontation of Diego Costa who was a bit of a prick to put it mildly when getting into the face of own goal scorer Seamus Coleman hence Howard's intervention.
Exactly 20 years ago yesterday, a 19-year-old Robbie Fowler set a English footballrecord whichstill stands to this day- takingjust four minutes and 33 seconds to score three goals for Liverpool against Arsenal, which is still the Premier League's fastest ever hat-trick.

Former Argentina striker Gabriel Batistuta has revealed that his footballing career left him in so much pain that he seriously asked doctors to amputate both his legs after his retirement in 2005.
Speaking in an interview with TyC Sports, Batistuta admitted that at his lowest ebb he once decided to wet the bed in the middle of the night rather than having to go through the pain of walking across the landing to his bathroom.

Former Manchester City mis-fit Robinho scored what was probably his luckiest goal of his career last night as Santos beat Gremio 2-0 in the Copa Do Brasil.
In the lead up to the goal there was a blatantly obvious handball, and when Robinho did go one on one with the keeper his tame shot was saved only for the rebound to bounce off the lucky Brazilian and into the net.
Dis graceful Gremio fans taunted Santos keeper Aranha with monkey chants last night during the last 16 clash in Brasil's most prestigious cup competitions the Copa Do Brasil with the game having to be stopped for a brief moment.
These people are not the people we want in our game or our football Stadium's any where in the World and should be easily identified and never be allowed to set foot anywhere near a football stadium again in their life time!
How does Robbie Keane like his chips? With a side-serving of delicious nutmeg...
Nicely done, that man.
For the record, Keane's goal came as Galaxy ran out 0-3 winners over Chivas, keeping there four-game winning streak alive and sent them within two points of Seattle Sounders at the summit of the MLS Western Conference table.

Chris Kamara is one of the funny guy's on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday, however today during West Ham v Southampton at Upton Park he was look like a proper Tulip (idiot) as he watched the game oblivious to Jeff Steling's cue to report on the game!
And just for the record Southampton won 3-1!
And good old Kammy is no stranger to being got on the hop just see the video's below for proof!
Stoke pulled off the shock of the week-end as they beat Champions Manchester City 1-0 at the Etihad with a goal from former Manchester United striker Mame Biram Diouf and at the final whistle one Stoke fan couldn't resist taking off his shirt and going ballistic!
I meant to get this up the other night and it slipped my slippery mind: Alonso Hernandez opened his Monterrey account with snazzy late winner in midweek Copa MX action. The goal play starts about 1:51 on the reel. - Greg Seltzer
Regarded as having one of the sweetest left foots in the biz-uh-niss by those in the know, former BOrussia Monchengladbach midfielder Juan Arango scored an absolute torpedo of a goal in the Mexican top flight night, putting Xolos Tijuana 1-0 up over Leones Negros with a coruscating effort from 30-yards which pinged in off the bar for good measure.
The chase is on for Norwegian whizz-kid Martin Odegaard who last week broke a Norewegian record held for over a Century as he became the youngest ever full International at the tender age of 15 years and 253 days.
Scouts were in a abundance for the Stromgodset's attacking midfielder's debut with Juventus, Barcelona, Liverpool and Manchester United representatives in attendance.
