There is a famous phrase, ‘football is a funny old game’ and indeed it is. This past week has seen a number of football related videos make there way on the that world wide web, and here at the Transfer Tavern we have scoured that web to bring you the most amusing happenings of the past week.
There is no doubt that celebration of the week goes to Jimmy Bullard of Hull City. Many of you may remember when Hull were good but after a miserable first half performance against Manchester City last year, manager Phil Brown took the wise step of holding his team talk on the pitch. A bad move. But the effervescent Bullard, recently back from injury showed the world that all is well at the KC stadium.
Most people detest Didier Drogba, apart form Chelsea fans, and most people have good reason. The burley striker is one of the most powerful forwards on the planet, yet he seems to spend most of his time rolling around on the floor. Maybe he has changed; check out this video of a dancing Drogba and Arsenal full-back Emmanuel Eboue.
Remember Rivaldo, the great Rivaldo, and the Rivaldo that won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002. Remember the Rivaldo who fell to the ground clutching his face when the ball was kicked at his legs, well… he may have a rival.
Goalkeeping blunders are part and parcel of the game and here is one from Belgium as Jurgen Sierens scores an almighty own goal that will surely make the DVD compilations in time for Christmas. Ben Foster take note, DO NOT IMITATE.
That is your lot for this week, be sure to look out for more funny videos very very soon.
