To be perfectly honest, while we're aware that he's hardly set Anfield alight,Pies had no idea Aly Cissokho hadbeen naff enough this season to earn himself "comedic no-hoper" status, but it seems the French left-back (on loan from Valencia) is ripe for the pisse-taking among Liverpool fans.
Norwich City 2-3 Liverpool Premier League 20th April 2014
Liverpool survived a second-half rally from Norwich on Sunday to go five points clear at the top of the table. Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez put the Reds 2-0 up within 11 minutes as Brendan Rodgers' charges looked to capitalise on Chelsea defeat against Sunderland.
Real Madrid 1-0 Bayern Munich Champions League Semi-Final First Leg 23rd April 2014
Despite dominating for much of this semi-final first leg at the Bernabeu, European champions Bayern Munich failed to turn all that time on the ball into goals, with Real Madrid ultimately winning the game 1-0.
We are just hours away from kick off. It's a game we have all been looking forward to ever since the draw was made. Diego Costa and Courtois against Chelsea, Fernando Torres against his hometown club. Here are a selection of the best video promo's to really set the scene for tonight!
This is pretty spooky and I'm sure there's a logical reason but this black figure running through the crowd during last nights Copa Libertadores clash between The Strongest & Defensor Sporting would have you wondering!
After securing promotion back to the Premier League around about a fortnight or so ago, a solitary goal from Lloyd Dyer (and a peach it was too) was enough to see Leicester City squeak their 29th victory of the season over Bolton at the Reebok last night and therefore mathematically seal the Championship title with two games left to play.
Hull City 0-3 Arsenal Premier League 20th April 2014
Arsenal kept hold of that precious Champions League spot courtesy of a fine win at the KC Stadium. Hull gave as good as they got in the first period but were undone by two superb Arsenal moves, with the outstanding Aaron Ramsey and then Lukas Podolski putting the Gunners 2-0 up at the break.
More good stuff from The Neviller, who got on the blower to discuss David Moyes' sacking with the Sky Sports News mob this morning, arguing that United let the axe fall too early to justify the length of the contract they handed to Moyes in the first place..
There's a worrying pattern in David Moyes' post-match press conferences that can be clearly seen in the compilation video below. It's no wonder that the number of Manchester United supporters backing Moyes continues to dwindle, while the rumors of Moyes' pending departure are rife in the media today.
Everton 2-0 Manchester United Premier League 20th April 2014
David Moyes endured a disappointed return to his old Everton stomping ground, seeing his poor United side lose by two goals to one.The Toffees were the better side throughout and went ahead after Phil Jones handled Romelu Lukaku's goal-bound effort.
Spare a thought for Real Betis centre-back Paulao, who endured a rotten old afternoon against Rayo Vallecano at the weekend as his two early, almost back-to-back defensive rickets saw Betis pretty much consigned to their fate as relegation certs.
Both errors led directly to goals for Vallecano; the first being a limp, woefully under-hit back-pass that allowedRuben Rochina to nip in and put Rayo 1-0 up after just 14 minutes, and the second coming 12 minutes later when the hapless Brazilian defender shanked a hopeful cross into the box fromAnaitz Arbillainto the back of his own goal via his shinpad.
While Ronaldinho was mesmerising the midfield during Atletico MG's Copa Libertadores clash with Atlético Nacional, his goalkeeping team-mate Victor was equaling his feats in the goal which was none more so evident than above when he made these two amazing saves.
Spain have released their official World Cup anthem for 2014, a song called "Buena Energia" (Good Energy) by a band called 'Maldita Nerea' who, for all intents and purposes, appear to be the Spanish equivalent of post-Patience-era Take That.
Aside from the beginning of the video looking like an advert for a dating site for 30+ gay professionals, it also features cameos from several of the Spain squad who will presumably heading out to Brazil with Xavi displaying some fine drum chops, Diego Costa banging away manfully on 'dem bongos and Cesar Azpilicueta absolutely tearing it up on the jazz tambourine.
Ronaldinho produces another piece of magic as he set's up an attack against Atlético Nacional last night in the Copa Libertadores however it wasn't enough for a win as the Colombian side beat Ronaldinho's Atletico MG 1-0 with a stunning winner in injury time scored by Sherman Cárdenas
Partly inspired by Leicester City's return to the top flight, we thought we'd delve into the portfolio of one of the city's most famous sons, Mr Gary Winston Lineker OBE, and hunt out the very first time he shilled for Walkers Crisps from way back in the primordial mists of the mid-ish 1980s.
For reasons we have no intention of fathoming, here's Neymar taking on a souped-up Ford Fiesta driven by Ken Block in some kind of strange football/rally hybrid battle of the ages ably assisted by a team of professional freestylers which includes everybody's favourite freestyle goalie, Lassi Hurskainen.
Jamie Redknapp shows he's still got an eye for a great pass with this Rabona pass which landed right at the feet of a team-mate during a Liverpool Charity match between the Local Liverpool legends and the rest of the world Liverpool legends!
Congratulations to Burnley Football Club for its promotion to the Premier League.
Burnley were one of the favorites to be relegated this season, but manager Sean Dyche has worked miracles at the club to get the most out of his players. With Burnley's 2-0 victory against Wigan Athletic today, the Clarets have guaranteed they'll be playing in the Premier League next season.
Benfica wrapped up their 33rd Portuguese league title with a 2-0 win over Olhanense last night and two games left to play, with the celebrations spilling out on to the streets after the game where Benfica coach Jorge Jesus, draped in red and cavorting around the crowd, found himself very nearly carted off by the police.
