"The European Cup Is Probably A Lesbian Anyway"

Well. WELL. It’s the biggest night in the entire history of world football, until this time next year, when it will be EVEN BIGGER. Liverpool vs Milan will not be a patch on the match that these two teams played out two years ago, of course, when Milan began their post-match celebrations at half-time and…

The FA Cup Final On YouTube

Yeah, I know. It’s really difficult to get worked up over the FA Cup Final this year, isn’t it? Ironic, really, because it should be the one we’ve all been waiting for years – the first major cup final at Wembley since 2000. However, Chelsea and Manchester United look upon the world’s oldest cup competition…
