New Employee At BBC Accidentally Put “Manchester United Are Rubbish” On National TV In Hilarious Gaffe

Plenty of people can relate to making a mistake their first day on the job. It’s a common occurrence. Not many people can say that on their first day they insulted one of the country’s biggest sports fan bases by running a headline that was never meant to be seen.

Pulisic Removes Chelsea From Instagram Bio — What Does It Mean?

Forget Arlo White, You Need To Watch Andrés Cantor Call Man City’s Title-Winning Barrage

Manchester City saved its season in five minutes, 36 seconds. And Andrés Cantor showed why he’s one of the best announcers in the world.

Safe Hands Under Stress: The Crucial Saves That Defined A Week Of Big Games

Despite all the hype, cup finals and semifinals tend to disappoint. Nerves take hold of the players, and the play on the pitch is dictated by a fear of losing rather than a desire to win.

Of All The Reactions To Everton’s Win, This Was My Favorite
