Solskjaer Was Doing An OK Job, But Then He Disrespected Mohawk Haircuts

Ole Gunnar Solskjær went some way toward discarding his “Baby-face” misnomer on Monday with a savage dig at anyone that dares stray from mass conformity. Much like José Mourinho before him with his effusive praise of Scott McTominay’s “normal haircut,” Solskjær’s weird anecdote about dismissing a transfer target solely because of what they did with their hair shafts must have Paul Pogba raring to sign a contract extension at Old Trafford.   

Ronaldo, El Fenómeno, Se Disculpa Con Las Madres Del Mundo Por ESE Corte De Pelo

Cristiano Ronaldo puede ganar un campeonato universal y salvarnos del apocalipsis con sus goles, pero para mí solo hay un Ronaldo y no es él. Ronaldo, hoy y siempre, es el brasileño, el Fenómeno.

As much as we at The18 love women’s soccer, it’s a sad fact that the men’s game receives far more attention, whether it’s from FIFA, other media companies, potential sponsors or the fans themselves. (We could spend hours debating why this is the case, but that’s for another story.) Despite this, there are still a large number of women’s footballers who are far more famous than their partners, who are themselves professional soccer players. 

Luck Of The Irish: How Football Has Become More Than A Game In The Republic Of Ireland

There is an Irish saying that goes Tiocfaidh ár lá, which translates to "our day will come." This refers to the day that Ireland will no longer be divided; when Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will finally come together as the single nation they were before British rule.

It is a phrase that is strongly laced politically and has some negative connotations in connection with the IRA, but it is ultimately a fight for freedom guided by hope.

The hope that Irish people will one day be united.

Érik Lamela Pulls Off Unbelievable Rabona Goal In North London Derby

Tottenham produced very little in the opening half of Sunday’s North London derby against Arsenal. The Gunners moved with more fluidity, occupied the more dangerous areas and limited a Spurs side starting with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Gareth Bale and Lucas Moura to just one shot. 

But holy Ødegaard, you’ve never seen a shot quite like this one.

Richarlison: De Vender “Toffees” En Las “Favelas” De Brasil A Ganarse El Corazón De Los “Toffees” En La “Premier League”

Al Everton FC se le conoce como el equipo de los caramelos o “The Toffees.” La tienda de caramelos “Mother Noblett’s” estaba ubicada entre Everton Brow y Brow Side en el Everton Village, bastión del club de Mersyside.

Desde entonces, ya es tradición que una niña, conocida como la “Toffee Lady” arroje los “Everton Mints,” que fueron vendidos por la tienda a la multitud en Goodison Park antes que se jugaran los cotejos en casa del Everton.
