Nine things we loved this weekend: Kompany, Naldo, Herrera, Isco, Di Maria

Quick Reads

On a landmark weekend for Manchester City, we also enjoyed moments from Real Madrid, PSG and AC Milan players.

Three teams in Europe secured top-flight titles in City, PSG and PSV Eindhoven.

In the Championship, meanwhile, Wolves’ promotion to the Championship was confirmed, meaning we get to see the delightful talents of Ruben Neves and co in the Premier League next term.

Manchester City

We can’t be arsed to argue about whether they’re the best team in Premier League history because, mate, it’s boring.

But Champions 2017-18, and well deserved too. Congratulations are in order.

David Silva

We love you, Dave.

Vincent Kompany

Even when he’s celebrating he’s quite intimidating.


In the words of Alan Partridge: “TW*T!”

Hector Herrera

And another. In the 89th minute. To put Porto top of the table. Yes.


The midfielder scored Real Madrid’s opener in their 2-1 victory over his former club Malaga with a splendid free-kick. He’s also very handsome. What more do you want?

Angel Di Maria

PSG clinched the Ligue 1 title in typical PSG style by beating Monaco 7-1 on Sunday. We’re suckers for seeing a goalkeeper get chipped.

Athletico Mince

If you know, you know. If you don’t, this will probably be very confusing.

Gianluigi Donnarumma

Honestly, this is absolutely mental.
