No, Mathieu Valbuena (R) is not a little person. This remarkable photograph -- an optical illusion caused by the fact that the French midfielder is leaning back to strike the ball -- is made all the more jarring by the fact that Valbuena has 6’4” Belgians Marouane Fellaini and Vincent Kompany behind him. The match ended in a goalless draw.

A life-size Tyrannosaurus rex statue, dressed with a Eintracht Frankfurt jersey, is seen in front of the Senckenberg Natural Museum before the club's match against Bundesliga champs Bayern Munich. The cuddly T-Rex failed to intimidate the visiting side as Bayern defeated Frankfurt 1-0 behind a Mario Mandzukic first half strike.

Pity poor Dirk Kuyt. Handsome, blonde, Dutch -- and this week, sporting a huge shiner. He and teammate Jonathan De Guzman ran into each other in practice, and the former Liverpool man came out the worse for it. Ouch!

Arsene Wenger (L) was left despondent after a dreadful 3-1 home opening loss to Aston Villa. As you can see, the fans behind him have some ideas as to why his side is underperforming.

Where did that grin go? The Brazilian star-- who insisted for years that he would never change his toothy smile -- shocked all of soccer when he went out and got shiny new veneers this last week. It’s just not the same, right?
