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

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

If I’d have been playing in the VAR era my long arms would have been offside for about 50 goals 😕
