#ICYMI: Hop, skip, jump

If you thought terrible penalty run-ups had peaked in the mid-2010s, you’d be wrong. This week Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini thought he’d stutter and skip his way towards his penalty kick against Braga. Obviously he missed – and deservedly so we reckon. Shocking stuff.

#ICYMI: Frogged

La Liga table-toppers Atletico Madrid couldn’t overcome little old Levante on Wednesday, the Frogs manfully holding Simeone’s lot to a 1-1 draw. The outcome would have been very different, however, if Atletico forward Angel Correa hadn’t missed this absolute sitter. Shocking stuff.

#ICYMI: Choreos

Despite all the evidence that overly-elaborate set pieces are in fact a massive waste of time, Karlsruher SC still thought they’d give it a shot in Bundlesliga 2 this week – coming up with this naff corner kick routine that ultimately led to… nothing?

#ICYMI: Bog on the Dim

If you’re looking for sophisticated comedy, #ICYMI is not the place for you. This week is all slapstick and pratfalls, courtesy of Alanyaspor v Sivasspor which was rightfully abandoned due to a waterlogged pitch. How they got the OK to kick-off is beyond us.

#ICYMI: Field of Dreams

With the end of the pandemic in sight (sort of) the prospect of getting back into games inches closer where we can once again revel in the scintillating prospect of *checks notes* referees staring at video screens for several minutes and *checks notes again* professional footballers blazing penalties into the stands. Can’t wait.

#ICYMI: UxG

Relief came for Newport County’s Tom King this week, as the Welsh goalie finally ended his goal-scoring drought which was stretching back more than 6 years and over 10,000 minutes of senior football. Now that he’s broken his duck, hopefully he can tap into a rich vein of goal-scoring form.

#ICYMI: Tangerine dream

Nobody loves a long-range effort more than us at #ICYMI, and this from Dundee United’s Lawrence Shankland in their game against St Johnstone is an absolute cracker, and perfectly judged. Not bad for an equaliser in a 2-2 draw.

#ICYMI: Bonne année

Brest goalie Gautieur Larsonneur started 2021 off in eccentric style as he almost scored what would have been one of the worst/best own goals ever to grace the #ICYMI archives. The standard for the rest of the year has been set high.

#ICYMI: Taking the epistle

There’s always been a certain something special about Brazilian football, and even when it comes to clangers they somehow manage to pull them off with more panache, too. This passage of play from Corinthians versus São Paulo has a little bit of everything for the discerning #ICYMI devotee – a ludicrously over-confident goalkeeper coming a cropper, an outfield player falling over for no reason, and some ropey finishing, all topped off with that trademark excitable Brazilian commentary.

#ICYMI: Past-robatics

Did you think somersault thrown-ins were a thing of the past? Well think again, as it’s all the rage in the Iranian Premier League. Peykan FC deployed it to hilarious effect this week against Gol Gohar’s rather hapless looking goalkeeper.

#ICYMI: Nahkanaama

Finland’s women beat Scotland this week with a very dramatic late winner in the 95th minute from Amanda Rantanen. Making her debut for the national side, the 22-year forward was overcome with emotion and/or pain as her breakaway goal secured victory for Finland in the European Championship qualifier.

#ICYMI: Decarbonated

A fizzy drink manufacturer’s works team lost to perennial German overdogs Bayern Munich in the Champions League this week. Dominik Szoboszlai won’t want to be reminded of his part in the defeat – seen here making a total mess of this glorious chance in the first half.

#ICYMI: Repeat offenders

Yokohama Marinos are back for the second time in three weeks with this fabulous own goal, a real team effort between the goalie and his defence. It was merely a setback, though, as they went on to beat Urawa Reds 6-2.

#ICYMI: Head shot

Headers don’t feature often on #ICYMI – but Gustavo Hamer’s lesser-spotted 25-yard headed goal for Coventry City at Vicarage Road was well worth paying tribute to. A terrific effort.

#ICYMI: Altibajos

A real gem of a clip from Spain’s regional leagues for #ICYMI this week – capturing the highs and lows of football perfectly. Goalkeeper scoring, late equalisers and long range lobs. It packs it all in.

#ICYMI: Mari-no

Brazilian Thiago Martins, currently playing for Yokohama Marinos in the J-League, is the unlucky subject of this week’s #ICYMI. Already one-nil down to Sanfrece Hiroshima, his defensive ineptitude put his side further in the mire with an hour gone, as the referee had no time for his meek appeals for offside.

#ICYMI: Peashooter

Former-Manchester United and West Ham United forward Javier Hernández is plying his trade in the MLS these days with LA Galaxy. If he keeps up the good work seen in this clip against Vancouver, we’re sure he’ll be a big hit.

ICYMI: Kráva

They say that football is a universal language. Listening to the expletives coming from behind the camera at this Czech non-league game, following an absolute horror show of a miss, one would have to agree.

#ICYMI: Finnish!

You’ll find no talk of xG, mezzalas or gegenpress here – we’re all about the simple things. Like a professional footballer, Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki in this case, falling over and missing a penalty.

ICYMI – Defence not copen well

It’s hard to know which is our favourite bit of this goal – a calamitous concatenation cooked up by Copenhagen in their Europa League qualifier against Rijeka last night.
