Lineker pulls in Pele, Maradona and Mourinho for best man's speech

Being the good sort he is, Gary Lineker went above and beyond the call of duty in his efforts to cobble together a best man's speech ahead of the wedding of one of his good friends, businessman Richard King.

Blowing pretty much every other previous best man's speech out of the water, the former England striker turned Match of the Day host called in a glut of favours from a whole constellation of famous stars (and Piers Morgan) to wish the groom and his lovely wife well on their big day.

Top 10: Christmas presents for footballers

Olivier Giroud's hair has been centre of attention in 2014.

With the big day almost here and the turkey and tinsel ready to go, Toe Poke's thoughts have naturally turned to those less fortunate than us: our footballing friends, some of whom are allowed but one day of festive R&R before having to report back for Boxing Day fixtures/post-blowout training, etc.

'Boring' James Milner opens his Christmas presents

With Aleksandar Kolarov steadfastly refusing to "sing" his annual Christmas carol this year (for now, at least!), Man City have had to find new and entertaining ways to fill their YouTube Advent calendar.

Stepping forward is James Milner, who has enthralled us all by allowing the cameras into his home to watch him unwrap his presents.

Playing on the whole "Boring Milner" thing, the City man keeps an impressively straight face as he deadpans his way through the ups and downs -- ranging from unwrapping...

Yeovil Monday is a thing as fans scramble for tickets to see Man Utd

Huish Park, home of Yeovil Town
Huish Park, home of Yeovil Town, will be packed to the rafters.

We'd have Black Friday, Cyber Saturday and even Super Sunday, maybe now it's time to christen today Yeovil Monday. 

The reason? Well, with the League One club hosting the likes of Falcao, Wayne Rooney and Angel Di Maria in the FA Cup when Manchester United visit Huish Park on Jan. 4, fans have been going crazy to try and get tickets.

The stadium holds only 9,565 -- with United given 2,036 of those -- so the fight was on for the remaining 7,500 on a "first come, first serve" basis. One fan told...

Shakira tells Gerard Pique where to play Lionel Messi

Pique included six Barcelona players in his Best XI but one was out of position, according to Shakira.

When Barcelona and Spain defender Gerard Pique posted his dream lineup on social media, he probably didn't expect (gentle) criticism to be directed at him from his wife.
