Zlatan Ibrahimovic and others following Ravel Morrison and Wilfried Zaha
Ravel Morrison and Wilfried Zaha were involved in an on pitch altercation last night as England's U21 side thumped Lithuania 5 0 at Portman Road.
And it comes only a few weeks after Keith Gillespie's exclusive extracts in the Daily Mirror reminded the world of the somewhat competitive nature of the football dressing room.
Whether on the pitch, on the training ground, hidden away in the changing rooms or on a flight to an away game, here's our best fist (sorry) of a top five:
David Batty v Graeme Le Saux
Blackburn were champions of England (if you're under 20 then you may need to go and read a book at this point) and enjoying their first ever Champions League campaign.
I say enjoying, they were 3 0 down away to Spartak Moscow and heading out of Europe.
"Before the match I told my players they will be playing against 11 guys ready to fight for each other for 90 minutes. not with each other, " revealed Spartak coach Oleg Romantsev after the game.
Quite the wit, that Oleg.
You'd probably back a snarling David Batty in this encounter, although Graeme Le Saux gives it a good go before the handsome Tim Sherwood restores some order to proceedings.
Also worth noting is the majestic gallop of a lionesque Colin Hendry, arriving just in time a provide an air of calm (and a mane of golden beauty).
Zlatan Ibrahimovic v Oguchi Onyewu
Zlatan: Not quite so close with 'the Gooch' Chris Watt Jersey as with D Becks
Zlatan's superb autobiography 'I am Zlatan' was so revealing that many of its stories barely even registered amid the Guardiola furore and his comments about Messi.
Among the lesser revelations, the sort which would have been headline making in any other footballers' book, was his fight to the death with American defender Oguchi 'the gooch' Onyewu while at Milan.
Ibrahimovic revealed that the pair "wanted to destroy each other" in the fight, which began after the mild mannered Swede had lunged in on Onyewu during a training session.
"I'm not talking about a small row," Ibrahimovic wrote. "It was like life and death."
Well, nobody died, but only after they were separated did Zlatan discover that he'd had one of his ribs broken.
Arjen Robben v Franck Ribery
This looks like a healthy working relationship
Things got ugly for Arjen Robben as he brawled with teammate Ribery in the half time break of a Champions League quarter final.
Fortunately it was only against Real Madrid, so their mid way brawl was no distraction from the task in hand.
The spat began on the pitch with your conventional disgruntled 'you should have passed it to me' gesticulating and ended with Ribery swinging a punch at his Dutch teammate and then their Bayern colleagues dragging the wingers apart.
The recriminations came the next day when both were hauled in front of the club heirarchy and then the subsequent denial/no comment from the press office which serves just as well as an admission:
"Whatever happens in the locker room stays there. We will not be making any further comment."
Which translates from German as, "he chinned him".
Joey Barton v Ousmane Dabo
Not your average training ground scrap because Dabo was left hospitalised by Barton. Of course, the Frenchman was a 'pussy' for calling the police in.
