Cristiano Ronaldo TEAMtalk

Cristiano Ronaldo gives a team-mate a smacker, Adam Lallana gets Leicester’s backs up, Luis Suarez scores an overhead kick and that interview from David De Gea, what a weekend…


In our weekly feature, we take a look at the best social media posts from across the world of football over the weekend. Football and social media can go hand in hand, but not everyone gets it right. Here, we celebrate those that do, highlighting the posts that have made us chuckle, the videos of wonder goals that we’ve just had to watch again, or just anything we felt simply had to be shared…


Sweet from Cristiano

A smacker for Dybala.


Let’s hear it for the boys

It was a fabulous weekend for Liverpool, who opened up an eight point advantage at the top of the Premier League thanks to a controversial injury-time winner against Leicester, while Manchester City somehow lost further ground in the title race.

Running the gauntlet…

Adam Lallana in the thick of it.


Augs about that then?

Wow. This fella makes Massimo Taibi look like Pele.

Livi ground staff enjoyed it

Beating Celtic is a big thing…


Absolute pinger this from Belgium star Axel Witsel, but his Borussia Dortmund side would eventually have to settle for a 2-2 Bundesliga draw with Freiburg.

Children re-invent your world for you

Gareth Southgate will no doubt have had a close eye on the performances of Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount for Chelsea over the weekend. But maybe not as close as this young man.


Juve eye ninth straight Scudetto

Cristiano Ronaldo was up to his old tricks again, quite literally, as defending Serie A champions Juventus claimed a crucial 2-1 win on the road against Inter Milan.

Two shockers on the sabbath

The bookmakers definitely had it off on Sunday as Premier League bankers Manchester City lost 2-0 to Wolves while Enable was upset in the Arc.

Telling it like it is

David De Gea could not hide his shock when interviewed immediately after Manchester United’s shocking 1-0 defeat to Newcastle.





Solskjaer on the brink?

Manchester United are now just two points outside of the relegation zone. For a bit of context, since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was formally appointed as Manchester United boss, Liverpool have won the same number as Premier League matches (17) as United have won points. Ouch.

Just the same old show on my radio

What about this Manchester United fan moaning that “our season is over” on October 6? There’s nothing quite like the rational, nuanced view of a fan phoning a radio station in the immediate aftermath of a league defeat.


Suarez overhead kick



On this Day

On this Day 19 years ago, minutes after the final ever game at the old Wembley, Kevin Keegan sensationally resigned in the tunnel following England’s 1-0 defeat to Germany.
