Chelsea star Willian loves Michael Jackson and theatre

Chelsea's Willian says he's a big than of the theatre ... and Michael Jackson.

Seeking to take in the culture in his new home city, Chelsea midfielder Willian has fallen head over heels in love with musical theatre.

Indeed, the Brazilian has admitted he's become slightly obsessed with the West End over the past few months, having paid to see the Michael Jackson "Thriller" musical production more times than is probably necessary since he arrived in London in 2013.

"The first time I went to a musical in London I loved it," Willian told The Sun.

"Now whenever I have free time...

Atletico Madrid's Arda Turan given the boot on his birthday

After "temporarily misplacing" one of his boots during Atletico Madrid's Copa del Rey defeat against Barcelona on Wednesday evening, Arda Turan's friends marked the Turkish midfielder's birthday two days later by providing him with a replacement.

Of course, being considerate types, Turan's pals made sure his new boot was made solely of sponge cake and raspberry jam so as to ensure he couldn't injure any poor unfortunate linesmen with it in the near future.

Jurgen Klinsmann backheels two balls at the same time

The USA suffered their third straight loss on Wednesday evening, eventually going down 3-2 against Chile in Rancagua despite taking the lead twice through Brek Shea and Jozy Altidore.

There was, however, one brief sliver of positivity, with US coach Jurgen Klinsmann setting sail aboard the showboat 10 minutes into the second half -- putting on a masterful display of touch and technique on the touchline with not one ball, but two.

Frank Lampard in the moon? One City fan's big bet vs. Chelsea

One moonstruck Manchester City fan has lumped a not-inconsiderable amount of money on Frank Lampard to score against former club Chelsea on Saturday after apparently witnessing an omen in the night sky above London.

Kieran O'Brien has bet on Lampard -- who equalised for City in the 1-1 draw between the two teams earlier this season -- to score first this time around when the two title rivals face off at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening. The reason? He reckons he's seen Lampard's face in the moon.

Cristiano Ronaldo impression, as performed by Francesco Totti

Cristiano Ronaldo is so famous that even his footballing peers like to do impressions of him. The Real Madrid maestro emitted a rather odd noise when he won the FIFA Ballon d'Or earlier this month, but evidently there is someone who is keen to take the crown of "social media king" from him.

That man is Roma legend Francesco Totti who, after his selfie antics, has now taken to doing some rather funny impersonations, as noted by teammate Marco Borriello.

St. Pauli players score after five seconds despite not taking the kick-off

What's faster than the "Route One" approach in football? Why, the "Route Zero" approach of course, wherein a given team simply go all out and take an instant pot-shot at goal directly from kick-off, usually resulting in the concession of a slightly embarrassing goal-kick/throw-in.

There are several examples of the direct approach paying off, with several teams scoring in under 10 seconds after catching the opposing keeper unaware directly from the first whistle.

However, we think St Pauli's reserve...
