The Top 10 strangest footballer websites

You didn't expect Kevin-Prince Boateng's official website to be unspectacular, did you?

They've got plenty of disposable income and leisure time and usually have other, non-footballing extracurricular enterprises to promote, so many footballers go to great lengths to set up personal websites.

Some are perfectly serviceable and barely worth commenting on, let alone visiting, while others are utterly bizarre. Here are 10 from the latter category.

10. Lawrie Sanchez

While fairly flashy in its design, Sanchez's site is actually quite drab in terms of content.

Notably, in order to pad out...

Best (worst) XI of April Fools' Day jokes in football

The ESPN FC crew talk about some of the April Fool's Day pranks played in the football community.

We're well aware that April Fools' Day can be a minefield for football fans, who are forced to sift through the morning's news in a constant state of paranoid anxiety, completely unable to trust anything they read, see or hear.

With that in mind, we've cobbled together 11 of the best bits of footballing April tomfoolery to help you weed out the nonsense.

1. Chelsea and Arsenal announce joint Ashley Cole statue

Dani Alves deals with questions by singing them away

Strange as it may seem, we here at Toe Poke aren't constantly badgered by hordes of reporters camped out on our doorstep day and night desperate for quotes and photos but we can image that kind of thing gets very old, very quickly.

Dani Alves, in his infinite wisdom, seems to have devised a foolproof method of dealing with such relentless hassle.

Finding himself being harangued by a clucking gaggle of media bods while attempting to make his way through the airport on Monday, Alves first ignored...

Southampton hero Matt Le Tissier to go on Countdown

Matt Le Tissier was a one-club man and is pictured here scoring against Manchester United -- and those dodgy grey kits -- in 1996.

Hit British television quiz game "Countdown" has Matt Le Tissier's number -- he's set for an appearance on the show.

The Southampton legend, who won eight caps for England, has already appeared on the show as a guest in "Dictionary Corner" and once solved a maths puzzle that both contestants and expert Rachel Riley couldn't get.

Now Le Tiss has bagged a spot as a contestant and he shared the news on Twitter.

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale owns NBA half-court challenge: 3 out of 5

Real Madrid star Gareth Bale show's he's not just potent in front of goal, as he took the NBA's challenge.

Gareth Bale is good at football, but it appears that if he ever decides to leave the game behind he can step right into the NBA.

The Welshman, who cost Real Madrid a world-record €100 million ($132m) when he joined from Tottenham in 2013, took the NBA's official half-court challenge and managed to sink three out of his five efforts. Nothing but net either!

Miami have been looking for a replacement for LeBron James, so perhaps they should sign up LeBale before someone else does.
