The music comes at you with POWER and intrigue… A-la a a brutal scuffle between Megazord and whatever Rita Repulsa could conjure up on the day. Except this time with less property damage and more goals!!!

NOTHING gets me jacked up for some sweet, sweet J league highlights like some fucking generic mid 90’s metal, (except for possibly fiery hot SPEED metal. SOMEONE CUE SOME DRAGONFORCE DAMNIT!!!!)

Sorry that was inappropriate, back to whatever my point was. Ah yes, this fantastic golazo made possible by Leonardo. The legendary Brazilian, who for some reason spent 2 years at the Kashima Antlers scored 30 goals in 49 games, to be sure none better than this. I won’t ruin it with a description, or attempt to do it justice with my text, I suggest you just watch..


Long time coming, this. January 2, 2012

 But of course the big question is: which team has the dishiest manager? My money’s on big Mick … — from the Guardian’s Clockwatch for today’s games

I’ve just created a new section for this page called “all that is good.” It basically will contain every football-related link we come across that gives us tingly joy. Here are my first three additions:

  • Dec. 8, 2011: Surreal Football’s Footurology series. The only part of Surreal Football that consistently lives up to that page’s promise. A series of boisterously absurd newsflashes from the sport’s dystopian future. This purported interview with Andrea Dossena on the site is also gold.
  • Dec. 8, 2011: this sketch of Neil Warnock is an utterly comprehensive summary of the man. (thanks to On Goals Scored)
  • Dec. 8, 2011: today’s Guardian Football Weekly Extra. They never fail to provide enjoyment when Philippe Auclair is involved. He never shies away from a catty remark (in this week’s, he has a bitchy zinger about Leonardo and Carlo Ancelotti’s relationship), gossips incorrigibly, and alludes to a bank of alluring secrets culled from connections and friends in high places. What’s best about him though is that he’s not afraid to be his own man, going against the grain, defending opinions most soccer journalists would be too squeamish to entertain. A boss. In this week’s adventures, he has a snarling debate with Rob Smyth over Manchester United’s governing structure. Also, Jonathan Richardson is also at his mischievous best. Football Weekly is often grating, but when it’s this good, it’s very entertaining.
