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

Also shoutout to this pic of the Wolves fans’ reactions.
Those are the astonished faces of people who have sat patiently through 35 years of underachievement, nothingness and Dean Saunders witnessing a truly world class footballer playing for their team. pic.twitter.com/lUW5XaQ6GV
