13 things we loved this weekend: Rose, Firmino, Messi, Hazard & more
While football’s immediate future remains uncertain, Danny Rose has left us in no doubt he’s one of the good guys this weekend.
Elsewhere, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher rekindled old rivalries, and who doesn’t want to see a video of ‘football hooligans’ comparing how much their jumpers cost?
We’ve rounded up what caught our eye most this weekend.
Rose continues to show he’s one of the very best.
After donating £19,000 to the North Middlesex Hospital in North London, and sending food to the hard working staff there, Danny Rose has now donated £10,000 to two domestic abuse charities.
Superb work, Danny…💙 https://t.co/nPZnqC3T6K

Thankfully the Liverpool icon has been released from hospital after his health scare, which prompted this story to surface.
Last year me and mates playing golf at Hillside. Kenny Dalglish was in clubhouse. We got talking my mate who was with us explained his dad wasn't in the best of health. Kenny took address. Next morning kenny turned up at house in Kirkby, had a bacon butty. stayed for an hour.

When Gary Neville was asked who replaced him in his final game for Manchester United, when he was given a torrid time at West Brom, Carragher stepped in first: “Someone from the crowd!”

We felt exactly the same when we met Eirik Bakke when we were 11.
Lionel Messi on Thierry Henry: "The first day he entered the dressing room, I didn't dare look at his face. I knew everything he had done in England. I had a picture of him made & suddenly we were on the same team. What I feel for Titi is best described as admiration.” pic.twitter.com/YGq6HGbvf3

Is there anything he can’t do?

E eis que o véu se rasgou A terra tremeu Algo acontecia entre a terra e o céu O véu se rasgou E o povo assim falou Verdadeiramente este era o Filho de Deus. “Porque Deus amou ao mundo de tal maneira que deu o seu Filho unigênito, para que todo o que nele crê não pereça, mas tenha a vida eterna.” João 3:16
We’re quite jealous of these, even though none of us support Newcastle.

To get you in the mood for the rest of the week, here’s a video clip of football hooligans correcting each other on how much their Lacoste jumpers cost.
“Hundred and 10 quid, pr*ck.”
