Manchester United fan carves Louis van Gaal, Manuel Pellegrini pumpkins

With both Halloween and, more importantly, the first Manchester derby of the season now within spitting distance, a football fan from Lancashire has successfully spliced the two together like some kind of ungodly lab experiment gone awry.

Simon McMinnis, who comes down firmly on the United side of the Manc divide, has spent the majority of his week so far creating jack-o'-lantern effigies of the two managers going head-to-head at the Etihad on Sunday using two enormous 15kg pumpkins he purchased...

Hamburg keeper Jaroslav Drobny makes painful save vs. Bayern Munich

Jaroslav Drobny winces after blocking the ball with a sensitive part of his anatomy.

Seeing that they went on to lose 3-1 anyway, Hamburg goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny probably wishes he hadn't bothered making one particular save during his side's DFB Pokal defeat against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

The moment came shortly before half-time when the Czech shot-stopper inadvertently repelled Philipp Lahm's close-range effort using a rather sensitive part of his anatomy.

You can almost pinpoint the moment that Drobny's eyes start to water, but -- and kudos to him -- the Hamburg...

New 'Mannschaft' movie allows Germany to relive World Cup magic

It still seems like it was yesterday for many -- mainly German fans, admittedly -- but it's been three-plus months since Germany earned that famous fourth star to slap on their jerseys at the World Cup final in Brazil in July 2014.

Indeed, aimed squarely at re-inducing those goose bumps first raised by Mario Gotze's outstretched left boot 108 days ago in the Maracana, a new film has been put together which relives Germany's entire World Cup-winning campaign from start to end.

Produced by German...

Two Indonesian teams kicked out of league after own-goal farce

Two Indonesian Premier League clubs have been kicked out of the league after Sunday's game that saw five own goals being deliberately conceded inside the final 10 minutes.

For the first 80 minutes of the playoff match (which was already being played behind closed doors due to violence in an earlier match between the two clubs), both PSS Sleman and PSIS Semarang stroked the ball around aimlessly in midfield, with both teams aiming to eke out a supposedly mutually beneficial goalless draw.

Arsenal's Lukas Podolski to make acting debut in German comedy movie

Following in the hallowed footsteps of celebrated footballing thespians Eric Cantona, Vinnie Jones and Andres Iniesta (played the part of "albino pirate" in the Spanish-dubbed version of Aardman animation "Pirates!"), it seems that Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski is also about to make his debut on the big screen.

Al Ahly midfielder Walid Soliman banned for untucking ref's shirt

Admittedly, this is a new one to us, but feel free to stop if you've heard this one before.

The Egyptian FA have slapped Al Ahly midfielder Walid Soliman with a four-match suspension after an incident during Monday evening's goalless draw with Al Asyouty Sport -- a result that marked Al Ahly's worst start to a league campaign in 10 years.

Already frustrated with his side's lack of gumption, Soliman picked up a fairly harsh second yellow card in the second half for a mistimed but ultimately harmless...
