Midweek Manpile: Norwich City Needs Work

It’s not often a Championship side puts on a good smush show.

Midweek manpile KicketteWait…we take that back.

It’s not often that we actually catch a good glimpse of a Championship side putting on a good smush show.

And why’s that? For one thing, their ‘piling’ leaves much to be desired. The above scene is more of the “limbs-slowly-collapsing” variety.

Now, if you want to know what gets our blood levels pumping, have a looksee at Arsenal FC’s nitty gritty gang-ups. Their collective happiness for a teammate’s goal scoring success, as evidenced through bone-crushing brotherly love, provides an excellent case study for proper body flailing.

Norwich City: should you wish to enhance your vertical stacking skills, have your people call our people.

    That Norwich manpile was funnily enough due to an Arsenal player on loan Lansbury scoring the winner right at the death. :) He must've brought the Arsenal manpile love over to Norwich! :)

    As an eagle eyed gooner prier to the gigantic man pile which was the whole team bar the goalie i swear i saw Koschielny's 'short tent' and i loved how the pileup includin a unused sub ala eboue being in the mist of it was the best thing i have seen this season Chamakh and Nasri were missin tough =(…the things that i would have done if i was involved, so many bums to pinch i would have gotten done for sexual harrasment x10 but i'll do time jst to get to cup a feel hahaha

      The USMNT does, indeedm know how to manpile! I am particularly fond of the one that resulted from Bradley's brace against Slovenia in the WC. Not only do I think that Baby Bradley is hot, but I loved how he was signaling "pile on boys" as he ran toward the sidelines. Of course, they all obliged, being such nice fellows!

        That was supposed to be a comma, not an m, as in "The UWMNT does, indeed, know how to manpile." I swear I can type correctly.

        I wasn't rooting for the US to win, but even I get chills when I rewatch this. They completely changed my mind on them during the WC. Still not first in my heart, but you just can't deny their tenacity and joy. They have etched their way into mi corazon a bit.

        • Rosie says:

          There is so much heart and love in that video that you just can't help but love it. I, too, still get chills when I watch it.

      • sarrible says:

        I love how Herculez Gomez just, like, pulls up a patch of pitch and has a seat next to Baby Bradley. He's so chill.

    Whenever I need cheering up, you Kickettes know just how to whip out some always-amusing Gunner post.
    My darlings! You're so cute! Still biting my nails over CL against Barca in 2 weeks. :/
