Tongue-tied Commentator Confuses Soccer Star's Name With Penis
Huffington Post - about 1 year
What's in a name? A lot, especially if you get it hilariously wrong. Soccer commentator Mark Lawrenson almost gave his co-presenters the giggles by mistakenly referring to Everton player Steven Pienaar as "penis." The former Liverpool Football Club legend made the embarrassing blunder on the BBC's "Match of the Day" show broadcast on Saturday, the Daily Express reported. Footage posted online shows the regular guest, 58, analyzing Everton Football Club's performance in its 2-0 win over Dagenham and Redbridge in the FA Cup. "They have got a really good footballing side, but the problem has been in the last three to four weeks is that they have got in front in games and not really killed the opposition off," he says. He then adds, "[Phil] Jagielka's back as we saw today, obviously [Kevin] Mirallas, penis, er, Pienaar as well." The show's host Gabby Logan and fellow guest Trevor Sinclair, who used to play for West Ham United, are seen smirking. But, incre ...

Soccer-Everton boss Martinez keen to hold on to Mirallas
Yahoo News - about 1 year
Everton manager Roberto Martinez says Kevin Mirallas is still a part of his plans and the club are not open to selling the midfielder in January, despite him playing only a bit-part role in the first half of the season. The Belgian has made only two starts in 10 Premier League appearances so far this campaign. Speaking at his pre-match news conference ahead of Wednesday's League Cup semi-final first leg against Manchester City, Martinez said he could trim his squad this month, but denied that he would welcome bids for Mirallas.

United's First Back to Back Defeat, Manchester United Week 34 Recap
Huffington Post Sports - almost 2 years
Manchester United squared off against Everton this past weekend, continuing their campaign to finish in the top four of the English Premier League table. Although, they were favorites to win the match, they were unable to replicate their winning form, falling defeated for the second week in a row to the resurgent Merseyside Blues, who are now undefeated in their last six matches. Louis Van Gaal's selections were again affected by injuries this week to Phil Jones and Michael Carrick. Paddy McNair replaced Jones and Daley Blind was started in place of the calm, collected Carrick. Usual starters adopted the other spots in the lineup as David De Gea started in goal, Antonio Valencia, Chris Smalling, and Luke Shaw rounded out the back four; Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, and Ashley Young comprised the rest of the midfield, and Wayne Rooney started in the lone striker position. It was almost immediately evident that the day would be Everton's as United's defense appeared ...

Baggies frustrate Everton amidst Anelka row
Yahoo News - about 3 years
Spaniard Pepe Mel's first match as manager of West Bromwich Albion ended in a 1-1 Premier League draw with Everton at the Hawthorns on Monday as the controversy engulfing Nicolas Anelka took a new twist. Diego Lugano's first goal in English football, a powerful 75th minute header, earned West Brom a share of the spoils after visitors Everton, who would have gone into the Champions League places with a victory, had taken a first-half lead through Kevin Mirallas. The result saw West Brom move four points clear of the relegation zone and left Everton five in front of reigning champions Manchester United, managed by their former boss David Moyes.

Lloris Knocked Out, Stays On, as Scoreless Spurs Go 99' for Hard-earned Point at Goodison Park
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Sometimes a goalless draw is a dismal bore. Other times it can inspire 1,500 words. Tottenham's away match at Everton on Sunday had the makings of a wide-open affair. Everton is a very solid team and has benefited from the form of Chelsea loanee Romelu Lukaku, who had tallied 5 goals over the club's last 5 league matches. Former Wigan manager Roberto Martinez plays an attacking style, and he was bound to go for it with the likes of Leighton Baines and Seamus Coleman, who comprise one of the Premier League's finest pair of attacking fullbacks. But Tottenham came out owning the first 30 minutes with crisp ball movement that kept the action in the Everton half of the field. Jan Vertonghen, again playing at left back instead of his favored center half position, turned in a Man of the Match performance and out-Bainesed Baines. Sandro started in his defensive mid role just in front of manager Andre Villas-Boas' high line and looked much better than he did in his disappointing performance ...

HIGHLIGHTS: U.S. Soccer Rocked
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
By Mike Slane, Goal.com CLEVELAND -- Jurgen Klinsmann wants the United States to face the best teams in the world prior to next year's World Cup in Brazil. After the Americans were destroyed by Belgium 4-2 in Wednesday night's friendly at FirstEnergy Stadium, it's clear to see that the team is not quite ready to compete with the top-ranked nations. Belgium forwards Kevin Mirallas, Marouane Fellaini and Christian Benteke took advantage of U.S. defensive mistakes to make it an ugly night for the hosts. Geoff Cameron and Clint Dempsey scored for the Yanks. It was the first time the Americans had conceded three or more goals since a year ago, on May 30, 2012, when they were crushed 4-1 by Brazil in another high-profile friendly on U.S. soil. The United States will face the world's second-best team in Germany in Washington D.C. on Sunday followed by three World Cup qualifying matches. "We just have to tighten up," goalkeeper Tim Howard said. "Most of the teams we ...

Premier League: 10 talking points from this weekend's action
Guardian (UK) - over 4 years
United were due a decision at Chelsea, Mancini should make fewer changes and Berbatov may need to change his attitude • Watch all the weekend Premier League highlights (UK only) Chelsea were not particularly hard done by In recent times, a lot of hot air has been emitted regarding Manchester United's supposed preferential treatment from referees. Some lunatics genuinely believe there is an official conspiracy involving Sir Alex Ferguson, the FA, the CIA and Nasa. Their attitude will not have been changed by events at Stamford Bridge, yet the fuss over Sunday's game is misplaced, a convenient narrative that doesn't stand up to the most basic scrutiny. Fernando Torres should have been sent off long before his dubious second yellow card. Chelsea were not unlucky to be down to nine men; they were lucky not to be down to eight, because Mikel John Obi should have received a second yellow card for fouling Antonio Valencia. Chelsea were the better team at 2-2, but they were about to go 3-2 ...
