Harder than it looks?
Botev Plovdiv manager Velislav Vutsov got a little excited when his team scored the first goal in their Bulgarian league match against defending champion Ludogorets:
Is that Fred Flinstone?
Unfortunately, Vutsov would not do any more running. Ludogorets came back to win, 3-1.
Sharing your last name with an international superstar is tough.
To share it with “The Biebs,” well, that just might be the single hardest thing in the world, especially nowadays.
Alas, such is the fate that has befallen young Christopher Bieber, a soccer player for German fourth division club Würzburger Kickers. But rather than getting down on his luck for undoubtedly being the butt of every joke in Würzburg, the German Bieber has taken some important steps to distance himself from the pop idol.
He’s got his own cool nickname - “Bibo!” - for one, and, rather than performing songs about love and trying to act like a badass, the footballing Bieber is just straight-up badass.
How else can you explain this goal? A diving header… while lying down!
Baby, baby, baby (oooooh)! Eat your heart out, Robin van Persie. That is the greatest “diving” header goal we’ve ever seen.
Not even Orlando Bloom could hate on those skills.
With a week and a half to go until they take on Hull in the FA Cup final, several of Arsenal’s players took a time-out from their no doubt serious preparations to sing the club’s long-standing FA Cup chant “She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,” the results of which are, well, they’re not good:
Meanwhile, Gunners forward Lukas Podolski apparently found some time to go back to his home city of Cologne for a little R&R. But in order to remain sharp, he also picked up some tips from the talented sea lions at the local zoo:
Yup, that seal has a first touch that puts even Diego Maradona to shame! In fact, if it’s up to Podolski, they’ll make him a Gunner soon:
That’s the new transfer target. Currently he’s a big star in Cologne but we’ll see whether we can make… http://t.co/5SDzSP7din— Lukas-Podolski.com (@Podolski10)May 6, 2014

Liverpool suffered an astonishing collapse at Crystal Palace on Monday night, blowing a 3-0 lead with only 11 minutes left to play (plus stoppage time) to draw 3-3.
Palace’s monumental comeback dealt Liverpool a critical blow in the Premier League title race, as Manchester City now only need four points from their final two games to secure the trophy.
The result at Selhurst Park sent shock waves around the world, and depending on who your team is, these were the most likely reactions:
Crystal Palace fans
Manchester City fans
Let me get that for you
Discuss among yourselves. We’d wager if it’s not, it has to be pretty close.
Hey! Take it easy!

…except when he’s angry
The Snow Bowl…
…FA Cup upsets…
…and Champions League classics
Mario Balotelli finally being happy…

Sticking it to the refs
The ‘Harlem Shake’ (it was fun while it lasted, don’t lie)
Celebrating the end of legendary eras…

The occasional, technical difficulties…
