PSV’s Memphis Depay’s protective mask is nightmare fuel

That, right there, is quite the busted-up eye. PSV Eindhoven’s Memphis Depay picked up the shiner over the weekend against Vitesse Arnhem, courtesy of an errant elbow.

Reportedly, Depay is medically cleared to play this weekend against Roda, so long as he wears a protective mask. So, how do you make a scary young talent even more frightening?

Like that. You add a flesh-colored demon mask, that’s how. Depay looks like the unfortunate hell-spawn of Hannibal Lecter and Michael Myers.

Here’s to hoping it’s only temporary, because we can’t imagine anyone wanting to mark the 20-year-old when he’s sporting that.

Fight breaks out in Europa League match

Anyone who said the Europa League is a meaningless competition clearly forgot to tell Dutch side PSV Eindhoven and Ukrainian squad FC Chornomorets Odesa.

With a shot at the round of 32 on the line, things became awful chippy between PSV’s Santiago Arias and Chornomorets’ Sito Riera late in the game.

As seen in the video, Arias gives Riera a less-than-friendly shove out of bounds. This sends Riera over the edge, in more ways than one. The winger charges Arias, shoving him and then popping him with a kick for good measure.

This overreaction starts a minor brouhaha, resulting in a yellow card for PSV’s Adam Maher to go on top of Riera’s red.

That wasn’t the only assault that took place in Thursday’s Europa League action. During an earlier match between St. Gallen and Swansea City. Look at that adorable girl just viciously attack that pretzel. It never stood a chance:

The scene calls up shades of one George Costanza:

Unabashed eating. Gotta love it.

Born to lead

During pre-season, teams start preparing for the upcoming year: work off the rust, shine up their boots and get ready for their opener. Well, it’s also a good time for the fans to get in a little practice, too.

During PSV’s 3-0 pre-season win over Eindhoven FC, a group of supporters gave a young fan the chance to test out his pipes. He sits atop a man’s shoulders and leads the crowd of rowdy fans in a raucous chant.

He didn’t certainly need a megaphone to make his voice heard. It wouldn’t be surprising if this kid makes a few more appearances leading the PSV fans during the upcoming season.
