10 chuckles you might have missed this week: Mpenza's viagra, invading koalas and a teddy bear shower

Football is wonderful, but without social media so many incidents would go under the radar. Here's our best picks of the week for your pleasure... 

1. Mpenza’s morning glory

In Paul Sturrock’s biography, the former Plymouth Argyle manager offers a hilarious tale about ex-Manchester City striker Emile Mpenza.

2.  Teddy bear shower

Eredivisie club Den Haag rained teddy bears on a group of children from a local cancer hospital. 

Supporters of ADO Den Haag throw stuffed animals for sick children

3. A koala-ty player

FFT isn't sure if this cuddly critter thought he was a sub or not, but he certainly seems to evade his marker well.

4. Injured Rose plays a blinder

Despite being injured, Danny Rose clinched the left-back spot in Metro’s Team of the Week.  

5. Sarcastic strecher 

Plaza Colonia goalkeeper Kevin Dawson was so irritated by an opposition player’s time-wasting antics, he fetched a stretcher for him. He was rewarded with a yellow card.

6. Tears for Totti

While scientists work out whether Francesco Totti will ever retire, he continues to win games for Roma – and make their fans cry.

7. John Hart debuts as Torino falter

The saga of Joe Hart's future came to a bizarre conclusion as England’s No.1 moved to Torino. Looking for a fresh start in Italy, Hart got anything but that. After first being referred to as ‘John Hart’ in the official teamsheet, he duly blundered for the first goal in a 2-1 defeat and lost his first game in Turin. 

8. Batshuayi trolls EA

Having assisted nine goals last season, Chelsea hitman Michy Batshuayi expressed his displeasure at his FIFA stats before the game’s demo release this week. EA responded with “Practice makes perfect”, before Chelsea’s Belgian joked he was going to download PES in protest. Maybe it's not actually the worst idea

9. Flipping bottles

Marco Verratti headed for the changing rooms earlier than others when he was sent off after an altercation with Olivier Giroud. Not a lot of people remember it, though, because his expert bottle flip went viral instead. 

10. French Forest

After Nottingham Forest announced the recent signing of Nicklas Bendtner, fans must have been wondering what was next when boss Philippe Montanier brought another new asset to his press conference on Friday. Alas, it was no more than a wide assortment of cheese. Délicieux!
