ICYMI: Jester

There are no words to describe the total clown fiesta that is this week’s entry to our #ICYMI archives which comes courtesy of Mechelen forward Aster Vranckx in the Belgian first division. Enjoy.

#ICYMI: Toffee wrapping

If this pre-season friendly is anything to go by, Everton’s Yannick Bolasie is in for a very entertaining year. The French-Congolese winger could have finished off a very smart passing move by the Toffees late on against Preston but got his legs in an almighty mess. Extra points for blocking the follow-up shot, too.

#ICYMI: Just one Cornet

OL’s Maxwel Cornet is the subject of this week’s #ICYMI with an early contender for miss of the season. Getting on the end of an excellent cross, Cornet had the Dijon goal at his mercy but somehow almost sent it out for a thrown-in on the far side. Great stuff.

#ICYMI: Sapp

This week’s laughs come from the J-League where Yokohama F. Marinos smashed Consadole Sapporo 4-1. Amidst the drubbing though, was this incredible miss from Marinos forward Jun Amano. A spectacularly naff effort.

ICYMI: Dashed

Sadly, there will be no clubs from the Best League In The World™ in the final of this year’s European Cup, which is instead being contested on Sunday by a fizzy pop manufacturer and a proxy for the Qatari state. Manchester City might have made it to the final if not for Raheem Sterling’s atrocious miss against Lyon – proving that even the best can make mistakes.

#ICYMI: Hammerzeit

Borussia Dortmund smashed Austrian minnows Rheindorf Altach 6-0 this week as they began their pre-season preparations ahead of the Bundesliga kicking off next month. Amidst the hammering, though, came this hilarious miss from young forward Immanuel Pherai. Great stuff.

#ICYMI: Simon the Elf

To the Allsvenkan this week, where Elfborg’s Simon Olsson treats us all to a genuinely impressive miss against IK Sirius. We hope, with Elfsborg coming back to draw 3-3 and no-one there to see it, this gem isn’t forgotten.

ICYMI: Dirgen

More comedy from the MLS for this week’s #ICYMI. Jürgen Locadia should have clinched the game for FC Cincinnati in their end-of-season clash against the Portland Timbers with a glorious chance – but obviously made a total mess of. Professional footballers missing tap-ins will never get old.

#ICYMI: The Byrne

You may have missed Shane Byrne’s raker for Brackley Town this week in their National League North play-off eliminator against Gateshead. After going 1-0 down and resuming play, Byrne spots the ‘Heed keeper off his line and hits a superb long range effort from inside his own half.

#ICYMI: Judson Ahoy!

Great news for you – Major League Soccer is back! Woo! The highlight of the MLS’s return thus far has to be this classically crap own goal courtesy of San Jose’s Brazilian defender Judson. And despite his disastrous intervention putting them 2-0 down to the Vancouver Whitecaps, the ol’ Earthquakes clawed it back and went on to win 4-3.

ICYMI: Sweeping strikes

You’ll be forgiven for missing out on the midweek tie between Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers in the Championship but the match witnessed a couple of excellent goals – chief among them this 40-odd yard strike from Rovers’ forward Adam Armstrong. A real instinctive pearler.

ICYMI: SPALs it up

Serie A minnows SPAL are currently battling relegation from the Italian top-flight and can do without such disastrous interventions from their captain Francesco Vicari. Leading AC Milan 2-1, Vicari’s attempts to block a cross cost them the win in the 94th minute. Ouch.

#ICYMI: Goal of the Year

This week’s #ICYMI is a simply sensational hit from Zlatko Junuzovic, scoring one of seven goals against Rapid Wien for the fizzy pop works team leading the Austrian Bundesliga. The involvement of the crossbar undoubtedly making it all the better.

#ICYMI: Don’t Luiz your head…

Football is back, and while we could’ve been worried about players taking a few games to get into their stride, David Luiz delivered from the off. Having been dropped to the bench and only entering the game due to an injury, he fluffed his clearance leading to Man City’s opener in first half stoppage time, before compounding his misery by giving away a penalty and getting sent off for an unwanted hat-trick just after the break.

#ICYMI: Army of the Dead

Jadon Sancho is the unlucky star of this week’s #ICYMI – seen here shooting wide from six yards out against Hertha Berlin to the indifference of a phantom crowd piped down the wires from an empty Westfalenstadion. Strange times.

#ICYMI: Rattled

This week’s entertainment comes from Liga I in Poland, where Miedź Legnica’s Spanish forward Marquitos failed to make Stal Mielec pay for some truly comical defending, with a bar-rattling miss from close range. A real clown-car of a footie clip.

#ICYMI: Heid

Some behind-closed-doors disappointment from Bundesliga 2 this week courtesy of Heidenheim’s Robert Leipertz. Having won a soft-looking penalty, Leipertz meekly passes it wide. Naff all round.

#ICYMI: Missing

The Bundesliga returned last weekend, the first of the big European leagues to resume after lockdown, and the behind-closed-doors restrictions made for some eerie watching – demonstrated by Martin Hinteregger’s sensational goal-line clearance for Frankfurt against Mönchengladbach. The roar following his heroics glaringly absent.

#ICYMI: Zidane

On this day, 18 years ago Zinedine Zidane scored one of the best goals you’re ever likely to see in a Champions League final – a sensational volley against Bayern Leverkusen that secured Real Madrid’s ninth European Cup. You’ve seen it before but why not watch it again. Well worth it.

#ICYMI: Origi

Last week we featured Lionel Messi’s 600th goal for Barca scored in the first leg of last year’s Champions League semi-final against Liverpool. So we thought it only fair to include Divock Origi’s winner in the return leg at Anfield this week. Some quick thinking, and complacent defending, combined to create a memorable moment.
