Lionel Messi has been considered a legend at Barcelona for many years, and after netting his 600th goal for Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid on Sunday, there are no words to describe his new record-breaking status.
Is he now considered a “Super Legend” ??
What a goal it was and to create history with that 600th goal wow, just totally remarkable.
With such a landmark, I thought there would be no harm in revisiting the masterpiece moments that have labeled the little Argentine wizard the best in the world.
What does a fan do when his team is losing 1-0 and he is frustrated as heck ??
The fan, in his 20’s, relieves his frustration by lowering his jeans and proceeds to masturbate in the stands. What is surprising to me is that there were fans nearby who apparently seemed totally unconcerned.
WTF ?? Seriously, WTF is wrong with people ??
This nutter was quickly surrounded by a group of stewards who then ejected him from Schalke’s Veltins Arena and he was reportedly arrested after a struggle with police. He now faces indecency and assault charges.
How frustrated will he be now ?? Hate to see what indecent act he performs in jail !!
Many goal celebrations are pre-planned, but some are simply spontaneous and hilarious. When the moment takes over you, what else is there to do?
Off the top of my head, I can remember Kevin Nolan’s chicken dance, Emile Heskey’s DJ set, and who can ever forget Peter Crouch’s robot. All iconic celebrations!
For Fenerbahce hitman Fernandao, a not so iconic moment got the better of him. Playing against Turkish rivals Besiktas, the Brazilian honored his opening goal on Sunday by thrusting his pelvis in the direction of the home fans.
The Brazilian should save the pelvic thrusts for his wife / girlfriend, as it certainly didn’t turn on The Turkish Football Federation.
They slapped the 30-year-old with a two-match suspension and a £11,500 fine.
I bet he won’t be pelvic thrusting anything for a while…LOL !!
Nike always manages to come up with the goods when it comes to football adverts.
The sportswear giants latest, directed by Spaced and Baby Driver director Edgar Wright, features PSG duo Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani.
And while it’s pretty boss, I don’t think it’s the best commercial they’ve done.
SunSport’s delved into the Nike archives and unearthed these gems featuring some of the world’s greatest ever talents.
Some of these ads brought back some wonderful memories…ahhh the good old days!
Most of them have one thing in common…the one-and-only madman…Eric Cantona!
With his curly perm, bushy mustache, and penchant for the unpredictable, Colombian goalkeeper Rene Higuita was a famous face in football during the 90’s.
Nicknamed ‘EL Loco’ (The Madman), Higuita, now 51, enjoyed a professional career spanning 13 clubs, nearly 500 games, and a quarter of a century. Even though he was crazy, he was one hell of a keeper…that needs to be said.
I loved watching this guy as we never knew what the hell he was going to do. He was so unpredictable and unorthodox on how he made his saves. I guess in his mind, it didn’t matter how the ball was saved. As long as it stayed out the back of the net, he was fine. His coaches on the other hand, and many Columbian football fans around the world, were on the verge of heart attacks while watching him play.
He is most famous for the scorpion kick save vs England at Wembley Stadium…absolute madness. He pulled it off and had football fans talking about it then and they are still talking about it today.
For an interesting read on “El Loco’s” career, check this out. They say keepers are crazy. Personally, I think Higuita takes the number one spot on the goalkeeper crazy list.
Such a fun guy to watch!
A couple weeks ago, I wrote an article on Man City’s different type of crossbar challenge game. This week, Man City is back at it again with a new innovative game that is taking the internet by storm.
Pep Guardiola has revolutionized City’s training sessions by rolling out a game called “The Wall”.
This game involves the whole squad…yes goalkeepers too.
The aim of the game is to not let the ball touch the floor. In teams, they line up one behind another and kick the ball at the wall of their training complex, allowing for only three touches per player.
Once one player has had their turn, they go to the back of the queue and restart the cycle.
Should the ball touch the ground, the whole team are forced to turn around and sprint to a cone before restarting again.
As you will see from the article, the game can be taken to quite a few different levels of difficulty, something I don’t think the talented City players will have an issue with.
You don’t want to be the losing team in this game as the Guardiola punishment is pretty harsh.
Ouch is all I can say!
Three brave supporters of Danish Superliga side Hobro IK won the chance to watch their side from a hot tub on a freezing cold Wednesday evening.
The 3-lovely ladies were offered the opportunity by match day sponsors to watch the game while wearing their swimsuits in the sub-zero temperatures in the north of Denmark.
Despite the blizzard and the freezing temperatures, the three women accepted and got the ‘best seat in the house’, while sipping beers just meters away from the action.
While some may have been jealous of the trio being able to watch their side play from a hot tub, it is safe to say that nobody will envy their trip back to the changing rooms.
Being a warm weather person myself, I can honestly say this is a raffle I would not want to win, no thanks !!
