Aston Villa fan makes 4,000 mile trip to donate season tickets

Prior to his season-ending injury in April, Ciaran Clark had excelled in defence for Villa.
Aston Villa have attracted a far flung fan to Villa Park.

Aston Villa fan Michael Cappuccitti is about to go above and beyond the call of duty ahead of the new season.

Michael, who hails from Toronto, Canada, is making the 4,000 mile trip to Villa Park to watch his adopted side's first home game of the season, against Manchester United on Aug. 14.

Before he makes the 4,000 mile trip home again after the game, Michael is planning to donate not one but four season tickets to underprivileged local children who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford to attend...

Neymar, Messi and Ronaldo among football's best-, worst-dressed players

As the 2015-16 season approaches, we're playing football fashion police. Here's who we deem to be the best- and worst-dressed players in the game.


Andrea Pirlo

No Pirlo, no party. The Maestro always looks classy and cool.

Xabi Alonso

Even when he's traveling, the Bayern Munich man is effortlessly stylish.

Gerard Pique

From the tips of his glorious hair to his fantastic footwear, Pique always dresses to impress.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo has made his fair share of fashion faux pas but has matured to become one of football's most fashionable.


Alex Song

He has been seen wearing shoes that light up. Enough said.


Neymar is only 23 years old. Hopefully his fashion sense will improve with age.

Dani Alves

Alves is quite a character and isn't afraid to show that in his clothing choices. Unfortunately.

Lionel Messi

The Argentine really needs some new suits ... please.

Finally, when it comes to Mario Balotelli and Karim Benzema, we aren't quite sure whether they belong on the best- or worst-dressed list ... or somewhere in between. Let us know what you think!


Thai Premier League player forced to abandon pizza for football

For those used to watching the Thailand Premier League regularly, having a game delayed by rain is no great surprise. However, sometimes even the players can find themselves caught short.

Nakhon Ratchasima striker Lee Tuck, who left England for Thailand in 2010, was due to line up against Suphanburi F.C. on Sunday but found himself sent home after a torrential downpour saw the match called off.

His first port of call was to pick up a pizza on the way home but, before he could even open the box,...

Norrkoping captain Andrea Johanssen produces truly abysmal dive

There were embarrassing scenes in the Swedish Allsvenskan over the weekend thanks to a passage of spectacularly dreadful play-acting from Norrkoping captain Andrea Johanssen.

In fact, Johanssen might just have produced the worst, most pathetic dive we here at Toe Poke have ever seen -- and we've seen some truly terrible dives in our time.

With AIK striker Mohamed Bangura innocently pointing up-field, Johanssen walked up behind him and pressed his nose into the Sierra Leone international's outstretched...

Belgrano keeper Juan Olave tucks into hamburger

With his side's Argentinian Primera Division game against Racing Club finishing 0-0, Belgrano goalkeeper Juan Olave was forced to keep himself amused at times due to a decided lack of goalmouth action.

After noticing that a Racing fan stationed behind his goal had thrown a half-eaten hamburger in his general direction, Olave simply picked it up and helped himself to a bite.

Mmmm. Nothing like a mid-game snack to keep the energy levels up.

Cristiano Ronaldo buys agent Jorge Mendes a Greek island

Cristiano Ronaldo has a close friendship with agent Jorge Mendes.

With the pair becoming inseparable over the years, you perhaps won't be surprised to learn that Cristiano Ronaldo was given best man duties at his agent's wedding over the weekend.

Indeed, Jorge Mendes got hitched to his new wife Sandra in Porto on Sunday afternoon, with Ronaldo well and truly trumping everybody else in attendance by buying the newly wed couple a truly extraordinary wedding present.

According to Portuguese news source Move Noticia, the Real Madrid superstar gave his agent not a...
