Fed up with away fans chanting songs about your owners?

Hoffenheim have the answer.

This past weekend, Hoffenheim hosted Borussia Dortmund in a Bundesliga game. Both clubs have a tetchy relationship with each other but BVB 's away support hit a particularly soft spot with their hatred of Hoffenheim's billionaire investor Dietmaar Hopp. Hopp is not exactly popular with Dortmund.

However at the weekend, things took a turn for the worst as this video shows (4.00)



That strange noise at 4.03 is the sound of a high frequency emitting device which was placed below the away block in order to drown out the Dortmund fans' anti-Hopp chants. Basically, one of Hoffenheim's employees didn't like what the away fans had to say and so drowned them out.

When rioters targeted Aaron Biber's barber's shop in Tottenham, they stole the hairdryers, smashed the shop up and broke the windows. However of the things they chose to leave behind, one was a signed photo of England footballer Peter Crouch.


So when the England star heard of the attack on the 89-year-old's shop he decided to pay a visit... and even had time for a trim.

Azkals: We are all Filipinos

I've posted Porto/Portuguese League/Portugal NT stuff here but I thought why not post about my real football NT this time? A good article on how our NT players feel about playing for our country:



There is no denying the immense pride that the Philippine Azkals have when they play for flag and country. Regardless of where they have grown up or come from, they are one in expressing their heartfelt desire to see the country’s success in international football, regardless of how people label them according to their heritage. What most people don’t know is that many of the so-called Fil-foreign players only belatedly came to know about the national team of their motherland, and sought out the Philippine Football Federation, offering their services.

PARTY TIME

So! We have had our first matches of the new season, our first (second) big trolling, and Rooney's hair throwing me off from being able to recognize Rooney.

Who looks to have started out well right from the gate?
Who looks nervous and needs to get back into the swing o' things?
Who will be the big names to watch out for?
WHEN WILL CHICHARITO COME BACK?! ;.;
How long will the Wolves be above Chelsea in the table? (I give it about a week.)
Which replacements are looking to kick serious ass?

Give me some fun facts to chew on! Preferably with gifs and some fun party music.

Justice for the 96

The Government today announced it would appeal against an order to release the hidden ‘Hillsborough Thatcher’ files to the public. Earlier this month, the Information Commissioner said confidential reports detailing the discussions then-PM Margaret Thatcher had in the aftermath of the 1989 stadium disaster should be made public.

The publication of the papers, said to include reports presented to the prime minister and correspondence with Home Secretary Douglas Hurd, would have come before the findings of the Hillsborough Independent Panel, which is currently deciding what information should be released to the public.

At the time of the Information Commissioner’s decision, the Cabinet Office said it would be wrong to put anything out before the panel had given it the green light and the families of those who lost their lives had seen it. And today, it announced it will appeal the decision. A Cabinet Office spokesman said: “We are appealing the Information Commissioner Office’s decision."

A petition has been set up asking for a full disclosure of all government documents relating to the disaster. If you're a UK citizen please sign it.

The King and Queen are supporting it:
