Mario Balotelli has a new haircut, and Liverpool fans will love it

Mario Balotelli has never shied away from changing up his hair, so it should come as little surprise that he’s gone and done it again:

This time, Super Mario has opted to honor his new club and city, Liverpool, with a ‘do paying homage to the symbol of Liverpool: the Liver bird. Upon closer inspection, you can see Balotelli even shaped his eyebrows to fit the motif.

Now that’s dedication!

Balo has had some bold, and certainly questionable, hair styles in the past but we actually kind of dig this one. What are your thoughts?

Liverpool and Birmingham Ladies trade long-range goals in ridiculous finish

imageUh oh. We’ve got two goals from 40+ yards out in the same crazy Women’s Super League match for you, but be warned: there is some seriously awful goalkeeping involved here.

In a game with huge WSL title implications, the Liverpool Ladies were up 1-0 on hosts Birmingham City Ladies when the fun began in the 87th minute.

That’s when Birmingham’s Hannah Keryakoplis took advantage of a colossal giveaway from Reds keeper Libby Stout to score a dramatic, late equalizer with a pinpoint shot from 40 yards out. Overjoyed, the entire team ran out to celebrate at the midfield line, including City goalkeeper Rebecca Spencer. The goal had, for the moment, put the hosts back in second place, two points ahead of Liverpool and just one back of leaders Chelsea with two games to play.

Alas, the Birmingham players - including Spencer, of all people -  were still running back to their positions when Liverpool skipper Fara Williams took the quick kick-off and scored from midfield to retake the lead. 2-1. Game over. Liverpool re-take second place. Ouch!

Watch the disaster unfold starting at the 1:18 mark:

Mario Balotelli trolls Manchester United after latest loss

imageOne way to immediately win over the hearts of Liverpool fans far and wide is to make fun of bitter rivals Manchester United at every opportunity.

New Reds striker Mario Balotelli is off to a strong start, tweeting this after United’s shocking 5-3 loss at Leicester City on Sunday:

Good one, Mario.

Of course, the dig at the Red Devils would’ve had a little more sting had Liverpool not lost this weekend as well!

Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson show off sandwich-making skills

image

Who makes a better $5 Footlong: Daniel Sturridge or Jordan Henderson?

We finally found the answer to this powerful life question after the two Liverpool stars faced off in a sandwich-making competition at a Boston Subway. Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Jim Corsi served as the judge, and had to choose between Henderson’s rather simple chicken parmesan and Sturridge’s bizarre steak and meatball concoction.

Find out who won in the video below:

Luis Suarez looks miserable as he’s wheeled home after surgery

In a quick, unfortunate turn of events for Luis Suarez, the Uruguayan striker underwent surgery Thursday to repair damage to his meniscus. With just 23 short days until Uruguay’s World Cup campaign begins, the talented forward will be cutting it close with his recovery. 

Of course, because the World Cup is a time that makes fans go a little bit extra crazy, we have these very stalker-y photos taken of Suarez being wheeled home from an ambulance after his surgery was complete.

At least we know he’s home, safe and sound?

UPDATE: Apparently it’s not just the fans that are hunting Suarez down to get a photo. Professional photographers got in on the action too.

Summing up the Premier League in one tidy little flowchart

Wondering where it all went wrong (unless you’re a Man City fan) for your Premier League team? Was it “lots of own goals and red cards” that did your team in? Maybe it was spending “£27.5 on a giraffe in a wig” that was the final nail in the coffin?

(Full size)

The fine folks at Project Babb have put together a convenient little flowchart to help answer these questions and make sense of one of the craziest EPL seasons of recent memory.

Enjoy!

Man United fans troll Liverpool on final day of season

imageImage: Reuters

Manchester United fans haven’t had much to laugh about this season, so a group of them felt they might as well find a way to depress their arch rivals as well. You never suffer alone, right?

With Liverpool having thrown away their chances at a first championship in the Premier League era over the past couple weeks, a pack of United supporters hired a plane — yes, again — to fly over Anfield with a cruel message aimed at captain Steven Gerrard.

Liverpool fans were not amused.

The banner, of course, refers to the number of Premier League titles Steven Gerrard has won - zero, or exactly 20 less than Man United.

However, Liverpool fans can throw a ‘0’ right back at ‘em: that’s the exact number of games United will play in Europe next season, while the Reds will strut their stuff in the Champions League.

But please, no more airplane banners.
