In an attempt to get more people to play football the English FA has made this hilarious video spoofing Nike’s recent Take It To The Next Level campaign. I’m not sure if it will convince people to get out and join a team, but it made me laugh.

Happy Birthday Mauricio Baldivieso


Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/ahrnciar/www.naturalhattrick.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/lib/tags.php on line 315 and defined in /home/ahrnciar/www.naturalhattrick.com/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990

Mauricio Baldivieso, who turns 13 today, made his professional debut yesterday for Aurora of the Bolivian league—making him the youngest player in South American history. The youngster came on for the last nine minutes of the club’s 1-0 loss to La Paz. It didn’t take long for him to get his first real taste of the big leagues when he was harshly fouled by Henry Alaca. Needless to say it didn’t sit too well with Aurora coach and Mauricio’s father Julio Cesar Baldivieso, who called the defender a ‘criminal.’

Ronaldo Takes Oasis Over The Beatles

'Champagne Supernova' makes him weak in the knees.

'Champagne Supernova' makes him weak in the knees.

He may have done all he could to move from Manchester United to Real Madrid, but Cristiano Ronaldo is still at ‘Manc’ at heart. Taking a swipe at former rivals Liverpool, the Portuguese pretty boy claims that Manchester’s Oasis are a better band than that little group from Liverpool known as The Beatles. While most of us know that’s as off-base as some of his fashion choices, you have to respect his loyalty. Maybe he will return to Old Trafford one day.

Nobody Says No To Stevie G

The next Joey Barton?

The next Joey Barton?

The Steven Gerrard affray (i.e. starting a bar brawl) trial began this morning in England, and things aren’t looking good for Captain Liverpool. According to prosecutor David Turner, after being denied his song request by the DJ, ‘(Gerrard) was clearly walking around pondering, musing over what had happened-about the man who said ‘no’ to Steven Gerrard.’ After a few minutes, Gerrard allegedly went back and began to pummel the DJ ‘with the style and speed of a professional boxer.’ And we thought Jamie Carragher was the only fighter on the team.

A Near-Fatal Attraction To Football

Would you risk a stabbing to see this man? Didn't think so.

A Malaysian Manchester United fan was stabbed by his ‘very angry’ wife after coming home six hours late from United’s 2-0 victory over a Malaysian XI side. Maybe he was out celebrating Michael Owen’s latest goal. The most shocking thing, other than Owen not getting injured yet, is that the police have yet to charge the wife with a crime. And United thought they were having a bad time in Asia.

Rovers Hang Tough

Watch Real Madrid’s ‘other’ signing, Karim Benzema, do what Real Madrid’s most expensive galáctico couldn’t—score against Shamrock Rovers. But not that anyone else did as the Irish side gave Madrid all they could handle. Unlike some other teams we’ve seen this pre-season.

The Yellow Submarine Torpedoes Navata 27-0!


Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/ahrnciar/www.naturalhattrick.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/lib/tags.php on line 315 and defined in /home/ahrnciar/www.naturalhattrick.com/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990

While pre-season friendlies aren’t supposed to be more than glorified training sessions or money making excursions to Asia, I really have to wonder what Villareal got out of hammering fellow Spanish side Navata 27-0. If you watch the highlights, it’s obvious the goalie won’t be getting a call from Vicente del Bosque anytime soon. At least no-name Jonathan Pereira netted seven goals in the greatest game he’ll ever have in his career.

Home (Not So) Sweet Home Depot Center

Unfortunately for 'Fecks' there's no place like home.

Unfortunately for 'Fecks' there's no place like home.

David Beckham is probably happy that the LA Galaxy won’t play at home again until the middle of next month. The Home Depot Center fans welcomed the English underwear model ‘home’ with a chorus of boos and some less-than-friendly signs. Mr. Spice said post-match that the incessant booing didn’t bother him, but his reaction to the crowd after a patented Beckham corner that resulted in the Galaxy’s second goal suggests otherwise. At least he had some of his A-List friends in the crowd to support him. I might be going out on a limb, but I think Beckham and MLS will be more than happy when this season ends and they can go their separate ways.

What Was Javier Aguirre Thinking?


Warning: Missing argument 2 for wpdb::prepare(), called in /home/ahrnciar/www.naturalhattrick.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/lib/tags.php on line 315 and defined in /home/ahrnciar/www.naturalhattrick.com/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 990

He may not have been on the job very long, but Mexican national team coach Javier Aguirre is already making headlines—for all the wrong reasons. The former Atletico Madrid boss received a three match ban and a $25,000 fine from CONCACAF for kicking Panama midfielder Ricardo Phillips during a Gold Cup group match. He will miss Mexico’s final Gold Cup match, and more importantly, could miss TWO of Mexico’s World Cup qualifying matches. That’s not a smart move considering ‘El Tri’ sit fourth out of six in their qualifying group. I’m sure former national team coach Paco Ramirez knows how Aguirre is feeling.

More Useless Beckham Crap

It’s a slow summer Friday, so we’re spicing it up by watching backstage footage of Posh and Becks during their latest Emporio Armani underwear shoot. And if that isn’t enough Beckham family news, the mystery behind son Cruz’ name has been solved. I really can’t wait for the start of the season.
