Grimsby produce brilliant parody of John Lewis Christmas advert

Grimsby's Lenell John-Lewis shares his name with the UK high street department store.

No sooner had this year's John Lewis Christmas advert hit television screens than the internet was awash with parodies of the tale of the little boy and his beloved penguin pal.


- The Wall: Newspaper's De Gea tribute
- Cheeky t-shirt: Man Utd fans poke fun at Gerrard
- Mud, glorious mud: Club World Cup farce
- Foot flap: West Brom player's gruesome injury
- Wenger is Frozen: Funny Arsenal manager parody
- Pecs appeal: Crouch copies Ronaldo
- Him again: Crouch goes crowd surfing

- World Cup bonanza: Gotze's boot sells for millions

Admittedly they're a little late on the uptake, but Grimsby Town have weighed in with an absolute corker of a spoof -- with the Vanarama Conference side utilising star winger Lenell John-Lewis (who is regularly the subject of "his name is a shop" chants from fans) in a scene-stealing cameo role.

Defeat vs. Swansea, winless in 10 games: Hull are in a relegation battle

Ki Sung-Yueng was the unwitting match-winner as Swansea returned to winning ways at the expense of a Hull side who look set for a long, hard relegation battle.

As Hull City supporters filed out of the KC Stadium and into the East Yorkshire night, it felt as though there was a sudden turning of the tide on Saturday evening. Where before the majority had shared the unwavering belief of manager Steve Bruce that this slump was no cause for great alarm, an unimaginative 1-0 defeat to Swansea City changed everything.

This was the moment City fans realised the club was ankle-deep in a relegation fight, a grim epiphany that no one could ignore. Each game that...

The 2013 Champions League finalists have suffered an almighty fall from grace and will spend their winter break inside the Bundesliga's relegation zone, but they have reacted as Dortmund react: Jurgen Klopp is set to remain in charge despite the heavy storm clouds hovering over the Westfalenstadion. 

A little over four years ago, following Dortmund's irresistible rise from their near-bankruptcy...

El Tri Depth Chart: Miguel Herrera has plenty to be happy about in 2015

Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera says he is happy with his sides 2015 Copa America draw and expects his team to perform well at the tournament.

It's been a solid year for El Tri. Compared to 2013, you could even say it was spectacular, but that's only true because Mexico's previous 12-month period saw the team sink to new depths.

Arguably the greatest achievement this year wasn't getting out of a tricky group at the World Cup in Brazil, but coach Miguel Herrera finding a system and a core group of players that seem to have a platform to move forward and build upon for future success.

That is reflected in the last depth chart of 2014....

West Ham sitting fourth as run of good form continues versus Leicester City

Andy Carroll opened up the scoring again, as West Ham moved within one point of Manchester United.

West Ham remain fourth in the Premier League after a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City. Barring two late chances from substitutes David Nugent and Leonardo Ulloa -- both superbly stopped by Hammers keeper Adrian -- Leicester never really threatened the Hammers at all.
