This week has seen another professional footballer hitting the headlines following some drunken escapades on a night out.

This time the player in question is Ledley King, who plays for Tottenham Hotspur but in the recent past we have seen similar stuff from players on the books of various clubs.

Of course, it often seems to be players of London clubs making most of the news but then again most of the paparazzi frequent the capital’s hotspots so I guess that shouldn’t be much of a surprise.

Some of these are just awesome, assuming they are all real and not some CGI-nonsense…

I like to think they are true enough, but you never know!

Anyone who watched A Question of Sport on BBC1 would have seen this clip already tonight, but I thought it so good I had to post it here!

The section of the show which featured the clip is called What Happened Next? and unsurprisingly each team is shown a clip which pauses at a certain point and they have to guess how the action progressed.

In this particular clip, the video was paused just after the football player managed to get onto the stretcher - do they always have to put themselves on the stretcher by the way?

Manchester United are probably one of the best known football clubs in the world - this is mainly due to the fact that they are one of the richest and most successful.

Of course they aren’t the only football team in Manchester, with Manchester City also playing in the Barclays Premiership - so why are they less well known than their neighbours?

Well, mainly due to luck and money I would think but they haven’t ended a season at the top of the table since 1967/68 and of course it’s trophies which ultimately attract not only the best players and managers but also the financial backing which is critical in progressing the club.

In last night’s Old Firm match, Celtic were denied a clear goal when Carlos Cuellar blocked a Shunsuke Nakamura shot with his hand right on the goal-line.  There was no way the shot was going to miss without his intervention and he was rightly redcarded and his team were reduced to ten men.

Celtic were then awarded a penalty, which they contrived to miss.

Is the sending off of one player and the award of a penalty punishment enough to a team in Rangers position?
