Chris Brass own goal - http://www.youtube.com/
The best own goal ever? Whilst playing for Bury, Brass attempted to clear a fairly innocuous cross from his own area with an overhead clearance. Full marks for creativity, but he wasn’t so pleased when he succeeded only in smashing the ball against his own face, which subsequently flew past his own goalkeeper for an own goal. To make matters worse, Brass broke his nose in the process in this football comedy gold clip.
The Football Special – Joe Kinnear sketch - http://www.youtube.com/
Joe Kinnear’s role at Newcastle may resemble a comedy shambles at times but this sketch captures his press conference PR disaster so vividly, it’s almost a carbon copy. The Football Special team use their trademark brand of satire, wit and football animation to deliver a glimpse of the future Kinnear is surely hurtling towards.
David Dunn skill fail - http://www.youtube.com/
YouTube football and this clip will be high on the list. He may have been a Premier League player for a decade before Blackburn Rovers’ relegation in 2012, but it is telling that Dunn’s career remains most famous for this embarrassing incident whilst a player at Birmingham. As he tried to execute a ‘rabona’ flick – where a player kicks the ball by wrapping one foot around the other – he crumbled to the ground with no other player anywhere near him. Even worse, it was a derby game against Aston Villa.
Robbie Savage - http://www.youtube.com/
An eternal pantomime villain of football, he may now be a high profile pundit on the BBC but people still enjoy laughing at Robbie Savage more than any other player. This compilation of clips shows everyone getting their own shot in against him – team-mates, opponents and even referees. Each of them also clear up some opinions long associated with Savage – that he was always going down to ground too easily!
Stretcher fail - http://www.youtube.com/
The talent of footballers is questioned on a daily basis but on occasions, the pressure is taken away from them by the unlikeliest culprits. Carrying a player off the pitch on a stretcher between two people may seem a simple task but try telling that to the injured player in this clip. Reminiscent of the Chuckle Brothers in their heyday, the two buffoons begin to walk in opposite directions before one inadvertently falls on top of the helpless player, who can be seen to be in agony. A classic YouTube comedy hit.
