While it doesn't exactly fit with the spirit of the game, we all love to see a bit of shithousery in football. Some players do take the practice too far, but some gentle bending of the rules is usually enjoyed by the supporters.
The art form comes in many different guises. The exchanging of a few words between players is a common occurrence, while you often see them having a go at opposition supporters.
However, we always enjoy the more creative incidents, such as this one from the Eredivisie.
Goalkeeper gets creative with shithousery in Dutch League
FC Twente hosted Feyenoord in the Dutch top flight earlier today, with the pair playing out a 1-1 draw.
Feyenoord entered the game as league leaders, and while they will be disappointed to drop two points having taken the lead in the game, the most memorable moment of the match may have been provided by their goalkeeper.
Netherlands international Justin Bijlow came rushing out of his goal to stop an opposition attack, doing well to reach the ball first and put it out across the sideline. However, he soon realised that he was caught badly out of position as the Twente attacker went to take a quick throw-in.
He would then show some incredible quick thinking to pick up another ball that had been near the sideline, throwing it onto the pitch so that the game would be stopped.
Bijlow picked up a yellow card for his antics, a price he was glad to play. You can watch the incident below.

While the FC Twente player didn't appreciate it, you get the sense that a good portion of football fans will.
Unfortunately for Feyenoord, they would go on to concede an equaliser in the second half and draw the game.
At least we will always have that moment to treasure.
