The Spoiler gives us even more Icelandic goal celebration fun.

On YouTube, Bayern Munich defeat a team with 30 players, 11-0.



  1. Tottenham beat Ipswich 5-1 in the 1962 Charity Shield at Portman Road not Wembley.

    The strange reference to Tim Sherwood and hookers appears to relate to the training with Tottenham of Danny Cipriani, a fly-half (or stand-off or second five-eighths or number 10).

  2. Actually Cipriani is a fly half or fullback. As John rightly says above. He’s also a petulant little t*rd who would fit much more easily into the Arsenal squad. I’m looking forward to him going to Australia and getting absolutely brutalised by some of the monsters they have in the Super 14.
    I hope the Freak realises what he’s been accused of – he’d fit right in at Chavski or Arse, but Spurs players don’t do this sort of thing.

  3. This has to rate as the tackiest headline of the month.
