Dude Perfect, Oscar and Lamela: Football v Football Challenge

Dude Perfect does it again. I wonder if Erik Lamela or Oscar even knew who these guys were before agreeing to film this.

Also, I started browsing Soccer AM’s YouTube channel after I watched this video and they are putting out a lot of quality videos. I’m going to have to keep an eye on them.


Dude Perfect Collaboration With Arsenal & Manchester City

These guys are taking the internet by storm and it’s easy to see why. Their excitement is contagious and their banter is one of a kind. It’s nice to see how their vivacious personalities bring out the personality of Calum Chambers, Mathieu Flamini, Kevin De Bruyn, and Raheem Sterling because you rarely get to see world-class soccer players in a relaxed environment. By the looks of things Dude Perfect recorded a lot more videos while they were across the pond so expect to see the rest posted over the next week.

Player Scores On Team In The Most Humiliating Way Possible

I’ve scored this way on the playground but never in an actual game. This is the ultimate show of disrespect. It’s funny now but I would be gunning this guy for the rest of the game waiting to give him a very dirty slide tackle if he pulled these shenanigans against my team.

Donald Trump Plays FIFA 16

A+ video right here. Whoever this comedian is, his Donald trump impression is on point. I could literally watch an entire web series of this. It was that entertaining. Although I’ve never been a big fan of e-sports I would watch them more often if they were more like this video.

Also, if you guys haven’t already you should subscribe and follow @TheFC. It’s only a matter of time before these guys blow up so get in on the ground floor because they will be producing more and more great content like you see above.

Reading FC Releases Cheesy Theme Song

Try and listen to this without slamming your head against a wall. It’s impossible. I mean I get what they are trying to do. A lot of clubs have “songs” and they want to make a memorable one their fans can enjoy and sing during games. Nonetheless, this isn’t a “You’ll Never Walk Alone.” Instead it’s a piece of pop crap that management should never have signed off on. It’s absolutely cringeworthy and I feel bad for everyone involved in it. I’m surprised Reading players let themselves be associated with this. If I had found out they were filming this I would have called out of practice sick just to avoid the shame and humiliation of being in this video. Please burn this Reading FC and let’s never ever speak of it again.

Young Kids Recreate Famous Soccer Photographs #BadBoysFC

From George Logan:

This was a personal project with photographer George Logan.

A series of lighthearted photos that recreate infamous footballing
moments, with kids. We wanted to ask whether a game that has
increasingly courted controversy over the years, with ever growing
salaries and celebrity lifestyles, is still creating the right role
models for Britain’s youth to copy.

What an idea! This guy has been getting a lot of press for these photographs and he deserves it. He took these pictures to convey a certain message and I could care less what that message is. I just find it hilarious seeing young kids recreating these pictures. The top picture is definitely the Mario Balotelli recreation. The real picture was ridiculous when it happened and it makes sense seeing a child recreate it. At least if a child had done it he could have been excused for his childish behavior. Mario Balotelli is just a child who never grew up.

Ballboy Joins Goal Celebration

From Deadspin:

We are here because Wycombe were trailing at home to 10-man Dag & Red five minutes into injury time before the final whistle when Wycombe won a throw-in deep in Dag & Red territory. It was thrown in then cleared out of the box, before ending up at the feet of Wycombe right back Michael Harriman, who lobbed up a perfect cross to the far post. Wycombe’s Aaron Pierre darted in front of his marker and headed in the equalizer seconds before the death, sending the home crowd into hysterics.

The amount of respect I have for this kid cannot be measured by any earthly measurement. This ballboy did what all of us ballboys have always wanted to do but have never had the guts to do and thats joining in the goal celebration. It takes so much self-control to not join in the goal celebrations when you were a ballboy. It looks like so much fun that you almost feel compelled to join when you’re on the field.

When I volunteered for the Philadelphia Union I always dreamed of running onto the field to celebrate a goal. I always imagined that the brief moment of joy I got from that would be worth getting banned from the stadium. However, I always reasoned against it. This kid didn’t follow reason or logic. He saw his favorite team tie the goal and he couldn’t help himself. What made it even better is that the player who scored the goal picked him up to celebrate. The pure joy in this moment makes the whole world feel like a much better place.
