Outrageous

Keeper sows chaos with use of the dark arts, deservedly gets ball chucked at him

I'd be mad at Feyenoord keeper Justin Bijlow if I weren't so damn impressed with his awareness and quick-thinking. You see, contrary to what Zlatan Ibrahimović thinks, shithousers are forgivable — they provide us with great entertainment and inevitably get smacked by karma somewhere down the road because that's how fortune works in the beautiful game.

Dudek’s save in the 2005 UCL Final shows why keepers must keep both feet on the line for PKs

Have you ever wondered why the rule that forces goalkeepers to keep both their feet on the goal-line during a penalty kick exists?

Well, an old video of Jerzy Dudek saving a penalty in the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool and AC Milan has resurfaced on social media, serving as a prime example of why that is.

Warning, it's a hard watch.

Up 2-1 in the 89th-minute, keeper picks the best moment to drop back-to-back skill moves

We have discovered the next Alisson Becker — it's 18-year-old Braga prospect João Carvalho, who makes Alisson look about as talented as Loris Karius in comparison. 

On Tuesday, in Portugal's Liga Revelação U-23 division, Carvalho took possession in the 89th minute with his Braga side holding a slender 2-1 advantage over Rio Ave. In this situation you're supposed to "GET RID!" by smashing the ball 30 yards out of play, but Carvalho is built different.

Bizarre scenes: Mitrović PK disallowed after striker manages the impossible

The two surprise packages of the Premier League season met at St James' Park on Sunday with Newcastle United and Fulham both challenging for the European places.

Newcastle was looking to improve on scoreless draws against Leeds United and Arsenal, but they ran into Tim Ream and couldn't craft a clear opening in the first half. Then, against the run of play, Fulham earned a penalty with just over 20 minutes remaining in the match.

Man City's Guardiola and Akanji rage against ‘clear interference’ on United's controversial goal

Manchester City defender Manuel Akanji said Marcus Rashford was clearly interfering with play in the lead-up to Manchester United's equalizer in their Premier League match on Saturday.

City defenders tracked Rashford's run from an offside position as he chased the ball for 30 yards before Bruno Fernandes stepped in at the last second to score.

The linesman raised his flag for offside but referee Stuart Attwell awarded the goal, allowing United to mount a comeback and win 2-1.

Jesse Marsch condemns Leeds chant about Gnonto's Willy

Since Jesse Marsch brought Wilfried Gnonto to Leeds United on deadline day in August, the young Italian has been a fan favorite. It wasn’t long after the young Italian made his debut in late October that the Elland Road faithful rewarded him with his own song. Unfortunately, the chant has quickly become a source of embarrassment for the club from West Yorkshire. 

Nottingham Forest-Wolves League Cup shootout was full of mockery and shithousery

Nottingham Forest and Wolverhampton’s League Cup quarterfinal, in terms of entertainment, exceeded expectations Wednesday night.

The match was a classic game of English soccer: cold and rainy but with a great atmosphere nonetheless. Wolves (with the goalscoring return of Raúl Jiménez) and Forest both managed to get on the scoreboard, but the game stood level at 1-1 after extra time so a winner had to be determined from the spot.

Watch: This indoor soccer goal will make your head spin

Indoor soccer players are some of the most technically talented individuals on the planet. The sport shares much with other variations of the beautiful game, especially beach soccer and futsal, where control is paramount. On Saturday, Tacoma Stars forward Nick Perera put all of his expertise to use with a piece of individual brilliance in a 7-5 win over the Kansas City Comets. 

World Cup winner Lukas Podolski gets sent off in his own charity match

BERLIN - Germany's World Cup winner Lukas Podolski has long dazzled crowds with his power and speed but he left fans at a charity match on Sunday speechless when he was sent off for dissent.

The 37-year-old former Bayern Munich and Arsenal forward, who now plays for Poland's Górnik Zabrze, was given his marching orders after he brought down an opponent in the indoor arena at Gummersbach during a charity match under his auspices.

He got up and walked to the referee, speaking to him and then coming face-to-face as he kept addressing him.

Red cards handed out in Barça-Atlético for hair-pulling and squeezing of the pee-pee

Atlético Madrid's slender hopes of catching Barcelona and Real Madrid at the top of the table took a massive hit Sunday when Barça travelled to the Metropolitano and emerged with a 1-0 victory, opening up a 14-point gap between the teams after 16 games.

It was all too predictable from this Diego Simeone side with the João Félix and Antoine Griezmann led attack failing to breakthrough and the midfield unable to gain much of a foothold against Sergio Busquets, Gavi and Frenkie de Jong.

Ángel Correa couldn't even connect on an attempted shot aimed at the linesman.
