In This Video, David Moyes Repeatedly Bungles The Names Of His New Players

David Moyes is back. And he doesn’t know the name of his players at Real Sociedad. We don’t really blame him, as the former Manchester United manager has moved to a new country, in a new league, with a new language. So, it is understandable and maybe even acceptable that Moyes is struggling. 

But your own players' names? In the video below Moyes called Real Sociedad midfielder Esteban Granero, ‘Stefano’ repeatedly. Later on in the video, Moyes turns to the bench to double check the name of another player. It may be time for La Real to put names on the back of their jerseys. 

The Emerald City Supporters: The Best Supporters In The U.S.

This Sunday, the Seattle Sounders will continue their quest to become the first MLS team ever to win the U.S. Open Cup, the Supporters Shield and the MLS Cup. With the first two already in their pockets, the Sounders must overcome a 0-1 aggregate deficit at home to earn the triple, which shouldn’t be too tall an order, especially with the support of their home fans: The Emerald City Supporters. 

3 Reasons To Give Thanks For Soccer

Thanksgiving is here, and that means the holiday season is upon us. Here at The18, we understand that not all of our readers reside in the United States, and, accordingly, probably do not care about Thanksgiving - but that is no reason for us to pass the buck on spreading holiday cheer, or, as is more likely the case, awkward, strained, family reunion mojo. ’Tis the season.

Queretaro Player Receives A Red Card…And Then Punches Opponent

This past weekend, Mexican side Queretaro lost to Chiapas 2 to 1. Normally that would be the headline, but it seems a certain Queretaro player wanted to overshadow the result of the match. No, not Ronaldinho.

Quarter midfielder Willian was sent off, but merely saying that Willian was sent off would be like describing a freeway pile-up as little more than “a coming together.” Just watch.                                                             

Lionel Messi Is Now The All-Time Leading Scorer In Champions League History

Cristiano Ronaldo may be the odds-on favorite to win the Ballon d’Or, but Lionel Messi is not going out without a fight. 

Messi scored hat-trick and added a scoring record to the annals of his personal achievement, and he has made a habit of doing both of those things recently. Just over the weekend, Messi scored another hat-trick and broke a different scoring record. Then it was La Liga’s scoring record, now it is the Champion’s League’s all-time scoring record.

In fact, every time that Lionel Messi has broken a scoring record, he has done it while scoring a hat-trick.

What Record Will Messi Break Next?

It was only a matter of time. Leo Messi needed 10 more goals at the start of the season to break Telmo Zarra’s all-time La Liga scoring record and, 12 games into the campaign, the legendary Argentine broke the record in typical Messi fashion. La Pulga netted his 20th La Liga hat-trick in Barcelona’s 5-1 victory over Sevilla, giving him 253 career La Liga goals. Check out the video Barcelona made congratulating Messi on his achievement:


Striker Whiffs Completely, Then Scores The Goal Of His Life
