11 things we loved this week: Milner, Adams, Carragher, Cazorla
The Champions League and Europa League took centre stage as both competitions hosted their semi-finals.
But their has also been plenty of action in the domestic leagues and some big news off the pitch – including a brilliant cameo at one of The Streets’ gigs.
A goal so aesthetically pleasing it made us do an article on the best chipped efforts.

Who would be a referee?
Bobby Madley tries to apologize to Newcastle players for missing a handball then loses his cool when they keep calling him out for it. this is hilarious. pic.twitter.com/jXJiWNfPTC

Everton’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle United may not have been easy on the eye, but it’s hard not to appreciate this defensive work from Coleman.

Watch this and try not to go ‘ooooohhhhhh’.
We need a real moment of silence for this casual Marcelo trap. This is wild. pic.twitter.com/kObSS2NRNY

Leeds United fans are delighted at the news Hernandez has signed a new two-year deal at the club, and our Rob is certain he was the one who convinced the Spaniard to stay at Elland Road.
Don't want to take all the credit for this, but after the game on Saturday he stopped at some traffic lights outside the bar I was in and awkwardly gave me a thumbs up as I sang his name. My hero, my mate. https://t.co/9XqHVy7Zna

Fantasy League conspiracies
In a desperate attempt to win a stress ball, Benedict O’Neill tried to rig one gameweek of Fantasy League, only to discover a “writhing snake pit of corruption and match-fixing”.
The former Arsenal man scored this wonderfully cheeky goal in the Norwegian Super Cup against Lillestrom on Thursday. Still got it.
To finish with, here’s a picture to make you happy. Have a nice weekend.
