#ICYMI: Vollander

AS Monaco stuffed fourth tier minnows Rumilly Vallières 5-1 in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France this week but FM2014 wonderkid Kevin Volland had a night to forget – failing to score and providing us with this horrific miss.

#ICYMI: Comebacks

Peterborough United deservedly secured promotion to the Championship at the weekend following a remarkable game at London Road. Going 3-0 down to Lincoln City, the Posh left it till the 96th minute to pull it back to 3-3 following the award of an extremely dubious penalty.

#ICYMI: Basics

You might think that tapping the ball into the net from a mere six yards away might be easy. But as Benfica forward Haris Seferović demonstrated this week, it’s harder than it looks.

#ICYMI: Monte-waay

Former-Spurs forward Vincent Janssen is now plying his trade in Mexico and it looks like he hasn’t lost his touch. An amazing effort and when 2021 is done, this might go down as Miss of the Year.

#ICYMI: It’s a cracker

The NIFL Premiership provides this week’s buffoonery where Glentoran snatched a late draw at home to Coleraine thanks to this quite unbelievable own goal from Josh Carson. Poor lad.

#ICYMI: Royal flush

Reading’s Lucas João is the unlucky winner of this week’s wooden spoon thanks to his eye-catching labours away at Oakwell, where the Royals drew 1-1 with Barnsley. All things considered, João probably should have done a bit better.

#ICYMI: Feeling Löw

Chelsea’s Timo Werner didn’t know where to look after he spurned this excellent chance in Germany’s recent World Cup qualifier against North Macedonia.

#ICYMI: Joca Bonito

This week’s outlandish piece of skill comes from Leixões attacking midfielder Joca, who takes the rabona to new levels with this superb finish against Benfica B in the Portuguese second tier.

#ICYMI: Thunderstrike

This week’s #ICYMI is possibly the hardest we’ve ever seen a ball kicked. Simply a proper belter from Cremonese’s Michele Castagnetti in Serie B.

#ICYMI: Doing ‘A Terry’

Wolfsburg lost 2-0 at the Fizzy Pop Arena the other day, but things could have been oh-so-different had Wout Weghorst not ‘Done A Terry’ while taking this 25th minute penalty…

#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.
