  • No one is enjoying the Awkward Ashley Cole meme more than Ashley Cole

    Brooks Peck at Dirty Tackle18 hrs ago

    Ashley Cole posed with his new Roma teammates as if he wasn't sure if he was allowed to be in the photo and the internet took over from there. So now Ashley Cole hovering in the background with his hands clasped behind his back has become a meme and no one finds it funnier than Ashley Cole himself. 

    Cole retweeted several of the photoshops doing the rounds, including a couple that called back to painful moments in his recent past. First, he shared one of him standing under the plane as the England team he was excluded from prepared to depart for the World Cup.

    β€œ@mrblackmills: This one is brilliant!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #AshleyColeInHistory #Creeping pic.twitter.com/Y0zX62kE9n” lol they got me hangin on tireπŸ˜‚

    Then he shared one that had him in the background of a photo of ex-wife Cheryl Cole with her new husband.

  • Carles Puyol demonstrates impressive yoga poses with his girlfriend, inspires imitator

    Brooks Peck at Dirty Tackle1 day ago

    Barcelona great Carles Puyol has retired from football and it seems he has replaced it in his life by serving as the base for his girlfriend's acrobatic yoga poses. Puyol has been posting pictures of him and girlfriend, Vanessa Lorenzo, doing next-level yoga on Instagram.

    Behold the synergy of mind and body that can only be achieved by someone who has the hair strength of 1,000 shorter haired people.

    This impressive display even inspired Spanish actor Carles Sans to follow Puyol's lead.

  • Louis van Gaal thinks someone broke Manchester United (and it wasn't Alex Ferguson)

    Brooks Peck at Dirty Tackle2 days ago

    Though Louis van Gaal has started his reign at Manchester United by notching two wins in as many preseason matches, he is far from satisfied with the state of his team. He said Man United's 3-2 win over Roma was "not a good performance" and now he's expressed his belief that it would have been easier to follow Sir Alex Ferguson than David Moyes because someone (or someones) broke the team.

    From the Telegraph:

    So who broke Man United? Well, no one wants to point any fingers, but their names might rhyme with "Shmavid Shnoyes" and "Bed Boodbard."

    In related news, David Moyes immediately burned his newspaper after reading these quotes.
