This Ridiculous Érik Lamela Goal Will Make You Feel Things

OK. Forget the stakes for a second. Forget that these are two bored teams playing in a second-tier tournament. Forget that Érik Lamela has gone his whole career without developing anything resembling a right foot, and still probably makes more money in a week than you do in a year.

For a hundred years the two have fought, the pendulum swinging one way, and then the next, decade to decade. And then the 1990s happened, and then the 2000s, and after nearly a hundred years,… » 9/04/13 3:18pm 9/04/13 3:18pm

The Gareth Bale Transfer Saga Is The Worst Thing In Sports

Chelsea, Arsenal Reach The Champions League As Spurs Suffer Heartbreak
