11 things we loved this week: Roma, volleys, Deeney & more

Quick Reads

Well then, where to start? In one of the most incredible weeks of European football, we also loved moments from Wolves, Aston Villa and Watford players.

Both the Champions League and Europa League produced some of the most extraordinary storylines with a number of incredible comebacks.

Meanwhile, in the Football League, the Goal of the Season competition could be made up of strikes from this week alone.

Peter Drury’s commentary wasn’t the only spine-tingling effort from the gantry during Roma’s incredible comeback.

Francesco Totti

The Roma great wasn’t going to miss out on these celebrations.

James Pallotta

It’s safe to say everyone at Roma had a pretty good, albeit expensive, night.

Ruben Neves

Lee Evans

What a goal pt.2.

Jack Grealish

Okay, you get the idea by now.

The National League side won Twitter with their take on Harry Kane being awarded his goal against Stoke.

Ryan Edwards

Plymouth’s 24-year-old defender was given the all-clear from testicular cancer this week, three months after receiving the diagnosis. Legend.

Lucas Radebe

It was The Chief’s birthday this week. We celebrated by remembering his heroics in goal for Leeds United against Manchester United, and he celebrated by tweeting us. Not gonna lie, we got a bit giddy.

Troy Deeney

Whatever your opinion on Deeney, watch this brilliantly candid interview and you will almost certainly see him in a different light.
