Barcelona backfire

This aged well.

 

Busy ref

We feel like we’re on first name terms with Cuneyt Cakir by now. That man seems to be everywhere.

 

Alisson’s value

It was a brilliant performance by Alisson against Barcelona, but even so, it appears that Liverpool paid way too much for him.

 

Salah’s t-shirt

Mo Salah was dressed for the occasion.

 

Coutinho regret

What must Philippe Coutinho be thinking right now?

 

Vidal’s nightmare situation

Few Barcelona players will be feeling the pain of last night’s defeat more than Arturo Vidal…

 

The unlikely hero

Divock Origi was asked to step up when Liverpool needed him most on the big stage, and he certainly delivered. Which is more than can be said for one entire big-spending club.

 

End of an era

The Champions League final just won’t be the same without them. Are we coming to the end of an era?

 

Karma for Ziyech

Ajax star Hakim Ziyech loves a nutmeg… and his teammates loved seeing him being on the receiving end of one for once.

 

World Cup squad announcement

England have unveiled their squad for the upcoming Women’s World Cup with the help of some famous faces.

 

On this day…

One of the most iconic goals ever scored by a keeper happened on this day 20 years ago. It was the goal that kept Carlisle United in the Football League, but not only that – it sealed Jimmy Glass’ place in football folklore.
