    I liked the headline on the Swans website a few years ago when we drafted a raw young defender:

    "Cheer cheer Aliir Aliir".

    Gold.

    I can't recall the British newspaper responsible for this headline, and I can't recall the soccer player involved (I think he was Spanish), and of course I can't remember the name of the soccer fan who started the whole fracas. However, for some reason the headline sticks in my mind.

    The fan was being obnoxious and the player finally had enough, so he went over to the fan and clocked him. The paper headlined it as: When the sh_it hit the fan!
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Was this the infamous Eric Cantona of Manchester United doing a Kung Fu kick on a spectator during a EPL game in the mid 90's?

    That's the man! I can see where I got Spanish from, forgot he was French. And it was "hits", not "hit".

    Not exactly recent but it sort of stays in your mind ...

    Also another non footy headline....

    Few years ago I saw a headline "Extra Cover for Ponting". It was about Ricky Ponting having a hair transplant.
