The Sunday Stroll: 25 September, 2011

September 25, 2011

Fernando Torres, oh dear…

On a similar note, how on earth do Real Betis not score here??…

Here is how it should be done. Barcelona putting eight past Osasuna…

Here is everyone’s favourite footballer Jimmy Bullard playing rock-paper-scissors for the right to take a free-kick for Ipswich the other weekend. Hero…

A quite brilliant and amusing video on El Hadji Diouf…

For Turkish clubs whose fans cause trouble, rather than being forced to play behind closed doors, it’s a women and children-under-twelve policy instead. After a pitch invasion against Shakhtar Donetsk in July forced that game to be abandoned, Fenerbahçe were forced to play their latest match at home in front of over 40,000 women and children last weekend. Although, pausing it at 1:04 reveals that there definitely were a couple of blokes who managed to sneak into the crowd…

In Sweden, these fans staged an in-match ten-minute silent protest (to highlight the importance of fans in modern football) and promptly went beserk when the ten were up…

Skip to 0:45s to see why it takes real balls to race motorbikes…

The cycling Tour of Britain finished this week with Mark Cavendish taking the final stage in London and Lars Boom winning the overall race. Nervy moments earlier in the week when Brits Geraint Thomas and Ian Bibby endured this terrifying crash…

Floyd Mayweather controversially won his bout with Victor Ortiz last weekend, seemingly striking his opponent whilst his guard was down due to a refereeing instruction (skip the vid to 2:40 in). Technically Floyd was right to keep fighting as the rules state you should maintain your guard all the time, but morally – as one folk put it – he was in an abyss. Poor moves, Money…

Seems like the fighting wasn’t just confined to the ring the other weekend – here’s British Touring Car drivers Jason Plato and Matt Neal coming to blows last time out in Rockingham…

If only all hakas ended this way…

Haka on ice?… Really?…

Makes you wonder though. Just imagine Daniel Vettori & his fellow NZ cricketers busting out a haka at Lords in their whites!…

Anyways, as ever folks thanks for reading. Stay classy…
