Premier League giants Chelsea close on Guarin deal?


Chelsea appear to have been big admirers of Guarin for some time and it looks like they may finally be getting their man. The Stamford Bridge outfit don’t appear to be short on midfielders but with the Colombian’s instrumental performance in the Milan derby he could’ve just won over manager Jose Mourinho.

Nile Ranger Continues Trend of Awful Footballer Tattoos

Now, we usually give footballers a bit of leeway with their fashion choices, since they are supposed to be eccentric, but this is too ridiculous, even for us. 

Former Newcastle striker Nile Ranger recently posted a photo of a new addition to his lineup of tattoos. When ranger tattooed a smiley face on the inner part of his mouth a few years ago, it seemed like the worst tattoo he could possibly get. Wrong.


You’re not imagining things. Nile Ranger tattooed his own name on his face. We’re not exactly sure of the reason, but we completely support giving people a heads up before they interact with Nile. 

Surprisingly, we can’t definitively say that this is the worst tattoo we’ve ever seen in world football, a niche that seems to attract awful body art.

For example, here’s former Inter Milan legend, Marco Materazzi, who seems to have tattooed a game of Bejeweled on his arm.


Or Bologna midfielder, Alessandro Diamanti, who might want to check if his tattoo artist has a license. Smile!


Or former Arsenal defender, Andre Santos, who seems to have let his mother design his tattoo.


But if we have to pick one, it might be the stomach tattoo of Southampton’s goalkeeper, Artur Boruc, who seems to have found a use for his belly button.


Keep up the good works, guys.


Carlos Tevez leaves Manchester, immediately starts dancing

With his transfer to Juventus recently confirmed, it’s no wonder that Carlos Tevez is in a mood for celebrating.

The former Argentine international joined Manchester City from Manchester United in 2009. Tevez helped play an integral part in City’s rise to power, while eventually becoming the club’s captain in the process.

Tevez, joined with his wife Vanesa Mansilla and two daughters, are seen on Argentine television dancing to “El Pasito de Luis Ventura” for who knows what reason. He might be a world class player, but those dance moves are definitely questionable in our book.
