13 things we loved this weekend: Balotelli, Guardiola, Vardy, Depay…

Quick Reads

One of the most dramatic title races in recent history came to a conclusion this weekend in Sweden, while there was some lovely sh*thousing in the Premier League.

Just to give you a heads up, the final video will ensure you start your week on a bright note.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Bo Andersson

After Djurgården came back from 2-0 down to earn the point they needed to secure the Swedish title, the club’s sporting director fainted in the emotion of lifting the trophy.


Excellent goal, even better celebration.

Jamie Vardy

Presumably this is an Eagle. Or a Seagull. Either way, it was to p*ss the Palace fans off. King of the WUMs.

Ben Foster

So close to the gold standard for footballing novelties, a goalkeeper scoring, but he was denied by a great save from his opposite number.

Marcelo Lomba

Got the ball, ref.

Pep Guardiola

He might be one of the greatest managers in the world, but he can be an underrated shithouse too.

Mario Balotelli

Well in, Mario.

And again

Really well in, Mario.

Armando Izzo

Oh, mate. Mate.

Memphis Depay

This was his second. Clutch player.

Ciro Immobile

What a record.

Peter Crouch


This Brann supporter

The police told him not to do it.
