It’s impossible to keep coming up with superlatives to describe Ronaldo, who continues to defy expectations.

What we’re most grateful about the Ronaldo goal for is the fact it inspired our mates at Ball Street to dig up this clip.
Ronaldo's was ok but it doesn't come close to when Nicky Butt got subbed on and within 30 seconds smashed one into touch deep in his own half, for no obvious reason. pic.twitter.com/D962AkSiEe

It may be a cliche, but watching Liverpool blow away a brilliant side on a European night at Anfield is pretty special – and it also shows that fans can, and do, make a difference.
How else can you explain Manchester City forcing Liverpool to change ends so they couldn’t play towards the Kop in the second half?
WHAT. A. HIT! 🚀

Our friends at Ball Street have made this excellent short video looking at why Alli has become the Premier League’s biggest pantomime villain.
Oh, Mauro, mate.

Wolves’ ball boy
With Hull’s coaching staff time wasting, this kid took matters into his own hands. Give him a Championship winner’s medal.
