11 things we loved this weekend: Neymar, Rochdale, McCarthy & more
With no Premier League games this weekend as the last 16 of the FA Cup took place, we turned to Europe to keep us entertained with some brilliant skill, while one man drew our attentions to the eighth tier.
Here’s our pick of the action from this weekend…
Impressive skill here from the former Liverpool man, but even better commentary.
This is just mint.

As if he hasn’t said enough completely random things already, the Swansea boss was at it again before he faced former club Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup.

Not content with his pre-match effort, though, after the game he also described the replay as being “a bit like Police Academy. You have the first one, then Police Academy 2, then Police Academy 3.”
You know on FIFA, when you end up too high up the pitch with your ‘keeper so you just go for it?

Napoli are catching everyone’s eye recently. Latest subject: Piotr Zielinski.
We couldn’t possibly leave a massive piece of FA Cup magic out, could we?
The Spanish giants defeated Eibar at the weekend, and showed some immense skill throughout the 11 with this phenomenal piece of build-up play.
Messi’s assist for Luis Suarez’s opening goal was a bit tasty, too.
The AC Milan forward here, with what is nearly the best assist you’ve ever seen.
One hardy Witham fan travelled for this match at Grays Athetic in the eighth tier, and despite his team losing 4-1, it looks like he had a great time.
For all you football fans you have to applaud this fan who follows Witham FC. Today he sung for the whole 90 mins. His support was amazing and it was great to witness his loyalty.

Just a brilliant, wonderfully Yorkshire reaction to what you think is a late winner in a derby. We like him a lot, too.
Solid reaction to Ipswich's goal from Mick McCarthy. 😂 pic.twitter.com/g5ySxNVD1S
