Real Madrid might be knocked to the ground, but they are hardly giving up. Real made a video to ask the fans to believe in them once more: “You are our strength” will hopefully ensure that every seat will be filled for their second leg semi match at Santiago Bernabau.

North Carolina women’s soccer decided to join the recent music video scene and pretty much shut it down. From “Beat It” to “You’re a Jerk” this was flawless execution. Summer Green killed the game with a scene-stealing back flip which we had no idea she had in her. I guess Summer has a little spring, too.

Anyway, consider us impressed with the entire production.

Russian linesman Musa Kadyrov temporarily forgot that his job was to police the game instead of brutalize it, as he lost his mind and attacked a youth soccer player.

Not exactly sure where this all went wrong, but Kadyrov was apparently upset about something that was said to him and he didn’t hesitate to knock Ilya Krichmar to the pitch and go after him.

Krichmar denied that he said anything of personal nature to the linesman.

“We weren’t happy with the officiating, words had been exchanged but I had never said anything personal about him or his mother.”

Well, that’s good to know. Kadyrov has received a lifetime ban.

Miguel Ibarra, who plays for Minnesota FC of the North American Soccer League, visited the Minnesota front offices to prove that he can outplay old people in business casual attire. No, he seriously put on a pretty nice ball-handling display before being taken down by an overaggressive teammate who should’ve been carded.

Not to belittle the striker for Dutch team Beerschot Antwerpen Dames – Nicoletta den Ridder – but, yeah … let’s.

She couldn’t throw a pebble in the ocean … seriously, I handed her a pebble and her toss ended up somewhere in South America.

This is bad. Wide open goal. It was gift; like a free lunch. I guess she decided to go Dutch instead (BADUM-CHING).

rapid-vienna-wall

Well, this is one way of showing your frustration as a fan. Australian Bundesliga club Rapid Wien is enduring a disappointing season, so since they can’t put out a winning product their fans decided they’d no longer have access to their offices.

Attached to the wall is a photo of manager Werner Kuhn with a caption that reads “I’m not allowed in.”

This is cool and all, but it’s also a lot of work. Next time, I’d recommend just putting up an emotional wall instead. It’s just as effective.

Becks

I’m not comfortable calling THIS a red card. At worst, it’s a fuchsia.

The referees clearly disagree with me here as they gave Becks a straight red for this little maneuver in the 90th minute of PSG’s 1-0 win over Evian Thonion. This wasn’t even a very good flop. Becks barely touches the guy and he goes frequent flyer mile soaring through the air. I guess you could argue that Beckham’s intent wasn’t to win the ball, but I’m not buying it and neither is Becks or a very disgruntled Posh Spice.

Robin Van Persie came back to Emirates this weekend, this time wearing a Man U shirt. Someone should’ve reminded him of that! He nearly walked into Arsenal’s locker room and at the last second remembered that he no longer plays for the gunners. Not that Arsenal would’ve minded he switched uniforms.

ManCityThe New York Times is reporting that Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour (on the right) is the favorite to become the owner of a 20th Major League Soccer club that would be based New York City.

News and rumors have been swirling in the past few months about the newest MLS team, with the league going on record time and time again to indicate interest in finding a way to add a second team to the market in the New York metropolitan region. This isn’t the first time a link between Manchester City and the new team has emerged either.

Contingent upon the deal is whether or not MLS can reach an agreement with New York in order to build a stadium in Queens. If that goes through, Mansour would pay a reported franchise fee of $100 million to join the league in 2016, with the name of New York City FC floated for the new team.

And it looks like Chornomorets has taken the lead 1- … uhhh … 1-1.

During a Ukrainian Super League match between Chornomorets and Metalist Kharkiv, we witnessed just about the fastest equalizer goal ever. Chornomorets scored first then completely fell asleep as Brazilian striker Cleiton Xavier ran up and caught the goalkeeper napping.

Great strike, but horrible awareness.
