ICYMI: Thanks-a-milian

You’d think a potential 0-0 between Barnsley and Wycombe Wanderers, midweek in November, would be a fairly forgettable affair but the punters present eventually got their money’s worth thanks to the heroics of Wanderers keeper Maksymilian Stryjek. An act of ineptitude that will be talked about for ages.

#ICYMI: Mixer

The spirit of the Rory Delap-style long throw lives on as Wales proved in Armenia this week. The Dragons salvaged a point thanks to this own goal brought about by an absolutely wicked long throw into the box by Conor Roberts.

#ICYMI – Forget the Scorpion Kick, here’s the Donkey Kick

We’ve featured goals from the top of the game to the grassroots and this week it’s the latter with Sunday League side Chells Rovers grabbing a ridiculous late winner. Hat-tip to ICYMI GOAT James Dart.

#ICYMI: Dissatisfaction

This week’s ICYMI – courtesy of Feyenoord against RKC Waalwijk – is all about those nagging feelings we have about modern football. A dive, a soft penalty, a farcical-multiple-minutes-long-drawn-out–VAR-review, an equally idiotic attempt at a panenka penalty. All the hits.

#ICYMI: Strife of Brian

Dutch giants Ajax are currently near the bottom of Eredivisie and are having a terrible season by all accounts with just two wins. Their dreadful form culminated in a 5-2 thrashing at longtime rivals PSV this week and Brian Brobbey’s profligate finishing is hardly helping matters. Comedic stuff.

#ICYMI: Blunder Park

Grimsby Town may be five games without a win (and have lost the last two games 3-2) but there were still some laughs to be had at Blundell Park this week when Colchester conspired to score one of the best own goals we’ve seen in some time. Pure poetry.

#ICYMI: Jet lag

For some reason Canada made a 10,000km trip to Niigata this only to be heavily beaten by hosts Japan. No doubt Alphonso Davies would have enjoyed the 18 hour flight home after an unlucky bobble and deflection of his own keeper’s face sent the reds toward a 4-1 loss.

ICYMI: Fun Police

VAR is extremely unpopular and if this farce from the Scotland game last night is anything to go by, it will remain so for the forseeable future. Scott McTominay’s superbly hit free-kick against Spain was ruled out because of some ethereal infringement – but no-one’s quite sure what. Ridiculous stuff from the officiating team.

#ICYMI: Batter

There are times when we’re all narked by time wasting, but on other occasions we have to acknowledge the artstry of it. Daniel Batty’s sublime piece of time wasting for York City at Victoria Road is one such example. Hang it in the Louvre.

#ICYMI: Chuckle brothers

The insufferable one-two penalty thing has sadly returned to our screens this week, thanks to Galatasaray’s Muhammed Aktürkoğlu and Mauro Icardi. Needless to say, their daring and original feat was completely unsuccessful to the notable displeasure of manager Okan Buruk.

#ICYMI: Leeds Rhino

Former-Leeds United goalie Bailey Peacock-Farrell gets the dunce cap this week thanks to a horrific piece of keeping in the Danish top-flight. His catastrophic intervention sent AGF on their way to a 3-0 at home to Brøndby.

ICYMI: Crowned

Aaron Lewis has scored what might be the goal of the season already. The Mansfield Town full-back completed his side’s 3-0 demolition of Accrington Stanley at the Crown Ground with this sensational volley, delighting the away fans behind the goal.

#ICYMI: Off the clif

Belfast’s Cliftonville Ladies made their debut in European competition this week and it was a rough introduction to competition at this level as Benfica dished out an 8-1 thrasing. Cliftonville didn’t help themselves either with this calamitous own goal after the half hour.

#ICYMI: Lone Rangers

Having crashed out of the Champions League group stage last year with a record -20 goal difference, Rangers once again hit the buffers hard with a 7-3 aggregate defeat at the hands of PSV in the qualifying round. And Connor Goldson’s own goal proved to be a particular lowlight…

#ICYMI: Sporadic

There’s still everything to play for in the Braga vs Panathinaikos Champions League qualifier, which ended 2-1 to the Portuguese side after the first 90 minutes. If the Greek side don’t make it through when the return leg comes to Athens, Andraž Šporar may well be thinking of this open goal miss for a while.

#ICYMI: Leo does Dallas

Inter Miami FC are through to the final of the Leagues Cup – an annual tournament between club teams in MLS and Mexican football – after a barnstorming match against Dallas in the round of 16. Messi and his new teammates scraped through on penalties after the game finished 4-4. Two of those eight goals came courtesy of the best/worst own goals we’ve seen this summer. A classic.

#ICYMI: Slippage

Accrington Stanley’s run in the League Cup is already over despite holding Bradford City 1-1 at the Crown Ground this week. The ‘Owd Reds were unlucky though, losing on penalties – the lowlight of which was Korede Adedoyin’s comical slip and miss combo. A night to forget for the former-Everton youngster.

#ICYMI: Backpass

The Europa Conference League is underway already and its setting a high standard for game management early on, as evidenced this week by Younès Belhanda channeling his inner Souness with a ridiculous backpass for Adana Demirspor.

#ICYMI: Goal of the tournament?

The Women’s World Cup is in full flow and Brazil’s Bia Zaneratto scored the goal of the tournament (so far) finishing off a fantastic team move in a 4-0 demolition of Panama.

#ICYMI: World’s worst first touch, world’s greatest last touch

A classic of the pre-season variety from Buckley Town as their player receives the ball out wide, gets away with a nightmare-ish first touch before running the length of the pitch to score with an absolutely sublime finish. Hats off that man.
