Pitch invader takes halfway decent free kick

Most pitch invaders storm the field in hopes of hugging their favorite player, or snapping selfies with as many stars as possible. 

But on the opening day of the Premier League, one fan took a different route, and elected to show off his football skills. He saw the opportune moment as Spurs lined up to take a free kick and pounced with lightning quick speed.

Christian Eriksen looked just devastated that the strike didn’t go in. And to be honest, his ensuing free kick wasn’t any better than the pitch invader’s attempt.

Maybe Blackpool should consider giving the fan a call.

Sam Allerdyce all smiles after embarrassing loss

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce hasn’t had a lot to smile about recently, but his spirits seemed remarkably high after a brutal 5-0 FA Cup loss at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest.

Allardyce, whose side also sits second from bottom in the Premier League, might want to wipe that smirk off his face. The 13th highest paid manager in the world (no, seriously) might not have a job if West Ham’s atrocious form keeps up.

Meanwhile, Hammers supporters weren’t quite as content:

Look what you’ve done, Sam.

Ravel Morrison scores best training goal perhaps ever

West Ham striker and England under-21 international Ravel Morrison scored a stupendous goal during England practice last week. Though he wasn’t facing any defenders, Morrison receives 100 points for this acrobatic back-heel volley.

Tabbed as one of the most promising up-and-coming English players today, Morrison will be hard-pressed to come up with something more spectacular in a real game. The 20-year-old has five goals in 12 appearances for the Hammers this season, and two goals in three games with the U-21 Three Lions.
