17 things we loved this weekend: Salah, Aubameyang, Moura, Hernandez…

Quick Reads

English football is back and half of our editorial team already hate it as Stoke City and Leeds United had contrasting fortunes on the opening weekend of Championship action.

Meanwhile, Manchester City beat Liverpool on penalties in an entertaining Community Shield and a number of other Premier League clubs completed their pre-season friendlies.

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

Kyle Walker

This was impressive.

Mo Salah

This was also impressive.

Angel Di Maria

Fair enough, Angel.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Just lovely.


Good, this.

Matty Longstaff

Manchester United are going to try to sign him now.

Lucas Moura

We’re starting to suspect he might be pretty good at football.

Stockport County

We’re so happy English football is back.

Kristian Pedersen

Headers from outside the box are the best type of goals.

Ryan Giles

We support Shrewsbury now.

Chicago Fire

A classic goalmouth scramble. MLS is ace.


Daft lads.

Manuel Neuer

Speaking of goalkeeper’s being ridiculous…

Joshua Kimmich

If only he’d finished this run off.

Mallik Wilks

Superb shithousery.

Eberechi Eze

Our Stoke-supporting editor is on holiday this week. Don’t worry, he was at their opening game of the season to witness QPR score this.

Pablo Hernandez

Our Leeds-supporting deputy editor is very happy to have Pablo Hernandez back in his life on a weekly basis.

James Milner & Andy Robertson

The Liverpool duo testing out what’s the best biscuit to dunk in a cuppa – what’s not to like?
