When you got to go you got to go — Stuttgart player leaves game in search of a toilet

What happens when professional athletes need to go? It’s a rare occurrence, but sometimes a player simply can’t hold it anymore and must go.

This was the case for Stuttgart’s Waldemar Anton on Wednesday during the DFB-Pokal semifinal against Eintracht Frankfurt. In the 63rd minute the defender went down without any contact and made the signal to the coaching staff that he needed to be substituted off.

Rather than heading to the bench, Anton made a beeline for the tunnel.

An open letter to Chelsea fans: Are you guys OK?

Dearest Chelsea fandom,

I hope this letter finds you well, however I seriously doubt it. I trust that you witnessed yet another pathetic performance from your club on Tuesday as the once mighty Blues lost their sixth game in-a-row.

There's a man with a chainsaw in the stadium and we're not in Portland

Things got a little out of hand during a recent CAF Champions League quarterfinal between Espérance and JS Kabylie in Tunisia. The match experienced a 40-minute delay to the second half after fans clashed with security forces around the stadium, and firefighters were required to put out several small fires in the stands.

Also, a storage room was looted and some of the equipment was later seen being used in the riots, including a chainsaw. According to Reuters, the chainsaw-wielding man has since been arrested.  

Jürgen Klopp pulls his hamstring celebrating winner in front of the fourth official

In a match best described as barely-believable, Liverpool took a 3-0 lead over Spurs inside 15 minutes on Sunday before Tottenham stunned Anfield with three of their own, culminating in Richarlison's equalizer at 90+3'.

But Diogo Jota earned all three points for Liverpool at 90+4', and in the ensuing bedlam manager Jürgen Klopp twanged his hamstring while pointedly celebrating the goal in the fourth official's face.

Warning: If you've pulled your hamstring before, this clip will conjure painful memories. You can almost feel this video.

Goalie scores last-gasp goal with his face, gets sent off after ref calls handball

We all have a reason to hate VAR: its stupid nano-sized offside lines, seeing penalties nobody else sees, the time it takes from the game to review plays — you name it. However, there are times when you wish the technology was around.

Or at least you entertain the idea after seeing how unfair life was with Spanish goalkeeper Manu García last weekend.

The Brenden Aaronson Weston McKennie golf story was the funniest highlight of a 17-minute interview that Men in Blazers did with the Leeds duo and Fulham’s American pair of Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson.

Leeds United and Fulham are America’s favorite Premier League teams as both have multiple U.S. players on the roster. This Saturday the two clubs face off, brutally early at 7:30 a.m. ET, and fans got to see a four-player interview with the Americans.
