Video of the week: Bayern Munich player Niklas Süle produces ridiculous own goal

Bayern Munich has sealed the title in the German Bundesliga for the approximately 643th time in a row. After a 4:1 away win in the Bavarian derby against Augsburg, Bayern secured their 28th championship in early April already. One has to admit: their dominance in their own country’s football is thoroughly impressive.

But the football universe is used to see Bayern celebrate titles way before the season ends. So, what actually stays in mind from last weekend’s game in Augsburg is the hilarious own goal produced by Bayern’s young defender Niklas Süle to give Augsburg an early 1:0 lead.

It was an own goal that actually makes you feel sorry for the 22-year old, who now actually has become the youngest Bundesliga player to ever have scored three own goals with 22 years, 7 months and 6 days.

Not only this inglorious record should awake our pity for Süle, but, even more, the fact that the own goal was absolutely not his fault after all. And that’s what makes this goal so brilliantly hilarious, too.

This slapstick-goal started out with his teammate, Jerome Boateng, losing the ball due to a horrific stoppage error, resulting in an Augsburg attacker being able to have a one on one with Bayern’s keeper Ulreich, who then was actually able to clear the ball away. However, as you’ll probably be able to imagine by now, the ball goes straight into Süle’s face and from there it finds the back of the net. Ouch.

See for yourself: Süle’s own goal against Augsburg (from 01:35 onwards)

At least he’ll have the silverware soon to chill his face a bit after that hit.

Happy new year everyone! Unfortunately I’m very, very busy with uni and work lately and hence won’t be able to publish a post for a few days. To keep you entertained here’s a fun stroy from Bro Code NZ that I’d recommend you to read  – What a way to start the new year for this Irish defender!

Hipster F.C. (Wednesday Shortlist #20)

Who doesn’t love them? Chai tea drinking, long beard wearing hipsters 🙂 Here’s a small selection of the most hipster-like footballer names around the globe. I had to dig deep in order to find these gentlemen, so there weren’t really many useable pictures around. Hence the looks of this hipster 5 a side team will have to be made up by your own imagination. Probably, that’s even more fun.

Here they are:

Zhichao Chai (Beijing Renhe Reserves, China)

Richard Beard (Currently without club)

J. Arcten-Pilates (1.FC Mönchengladbach U17, Germany)

Takahiro Soya (FC Kariya, Japan)

Steven Marx (VSG Altglienicke, Germany)

And finally, the suggested club name: FC Vegetarianos (Equatorial Guinea)

8 Football teams I would never join because of their awful names (Wednesday Shortlist #19)

Hi everyone! In addition to last week’s shortlist that covered football teams I would join just because of their epic names, we’ll talk about the exact opposite this week. I went through football leagues from Australia to Sweden and back in order to collect the teams with the most awful names around the globe. Enjoy!

1)  Deportivo Moron (Argentina, Primera B National) – Well, you can only be glad that this team plays in Argentina and not in England. The cock in their logo does NOT make things any better either…

2) Semen Padang (Indonesia, S-League) – Speaking of male genitals, a list of the worst teams names around the globe simply has to include this Indonesian side. Apparently, they have a very potent style of play.

3) Young Boys Bern (Switzerland, Super League) – Let’s move on to Switzerand now. Young Boys Bern are leading the Swiss Super League at the moment. But imagine their fans supporting them from the stands shouting „WE LOVE YOUNG BOYS“. That might get you arrested in some parts of the world. Just saying.

4) GAIS Göteborg (Sweden, Superettan) – Life mustn’t be easy for supporters of  the team from Gothenburg either. But hey, saying you support GAIS is at least as politically correct as it gets the days and will probably help you making a move on this vegan chick from the local coffee shop.

5) Cockburn City SC (Australia, Western Australia Premier League) – After almost giving up on the Australian amateur leagues, I found this beauty of a team name that sounds like the symptoms you google when you’re scared of having caught an STD.

6)  Ebusua Dwarfs FC (Ghana, Premier League) – Compared to what we’ve had up until here, this one is almost tame. Still, you don’t really scrae any oponent off with this team name.

7) King Faisal Babies FC (Ghana, Premier League) – OK, this team from Ghana might have an even less fierce name. How cute.

8) Dinamo Bender (Moldovia, Divizia A) – Let’s end this list on a high note. Oh how I love team names that include insults. „Come on you Benders!“

5 things that make anybody squirm less than watching Liverpool try and keep a lead (Wednesday Shortlist #16 by guest writer Mark Malu)

For this week’s Wednesday Shortlist I’m glad to announce Mark Malu from The Kopville as guest writer. Make sure to check out his awesome blog too!

After three weeks of excellent form shown by Liverpool in both the Premier League and the Champions League, their defensive fragility shot their confidence right back down to earth. Starting with a ridiculous forfeit of a 3-0 lead against Sevilla in the Champions League, they gave up a solid 1-0 lead against current Premier League champions, Chelsea F.C.

Liverpool, historically, has notoriously been a force to reckon with going forward, always creating countless scoring chances, producing some truly world class attacking players, Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Fernando “El Nino” Torres, Luis Suarez and so on. Nonetheless they have always had issues in the back, this started a long time before the high tempo Klopp era we have seen recently. In the last five years they have conceded over 40 goals each year in the Premier League. So, if you are a gambling person you always know to bet on them to concede a minimum of one goal. As a fan of the team you know to squirm whenever they take a lead in a game, no matter how long is left in the game.

So next time anyone watches a Liverpool game, here are 5 things that will make you squirm less than watching Liverpool F.C. try and keep a lead:

Finally, any time Alberto Moreno is supposed to do anything defensively.

Just writing this list brought a shiver down my spine.
