Jamie Carragher

Liverpool won, but it was a rough weekend for Jamie Carragher on Sky Sports, while there was a Lionel Messi-like goal from Hertha Berlin’s Dilrosun, all in Social Shots.


Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

The way Harry Kane scored on Saturday, from the floor, after being tripped, was just outrageous. Fabulous improvisation.


VAR? Enforcing the rules? Or changing them?

Opinion on social media was clearly divided regarding the decision to chalk off Tottenham’s second ‘goal’ at the King Power. We have to agree that this was something of a crazy call. *Andy Townsend voice* “The game’s gone, Clive.”


Vintage Spurs?

It’s mad to think that Tottenham were 2-0 up at one stage at the King Power yet still managed to lose their game against Leicester City 2-1. Ouch.

Perseverance is power

Absolute scenes over in Italy as Miguel Veloso eventually fired Verona into a shock lead at Juventus. As the old saying goes, if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

So. Cards on the table then. What would you rather have for £6500? James Maddison’s rucksack? Or:

10,000 Double Deckers?

6,340 litres of petrol?

200 nights at a Premier Inn?

You never lose it

Former Tottenham and Blackburn star David Bentley showed live on national TV over the weekend that while form is temporary, class is forever.


Dutch winger Javairô Dilrosun scored a quite sensational goal for Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Saturday. Mesmerising runs and cool finishes? We love to see it.

The return of the prodigal son

Poor game on Tyneside on Saturday evening between Newcastle and Brighton but the biggest roar of the night was saved for the return of target man Andy Carroll.

The very best of frenemies

Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher were 100% sworn enemies in their playing days at Manchester United and Liverpool respectively, but the duo have since developed an on-screen bromance as pundits on Sky Sports.

Keane to get his point across

However we are not sure Carragher’s relationship with Roy Keane is quite as cosy. This may be just Roy being Roy of course, but it was savage stuff nevertheless.

Gunnar be a long, harsh winter?

Following Sunday’s 2-0 reverse against West Ham Manchester United have scored just 16 goals in 17 matches since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as permanent manager. Their last away win was against PSG in March.

On this Day

24 years ago today Tony Yeboah proudly continued his inimitable one-man crusade against tap-ins by scoring this absolute howitzer against Wimbledon. Ye Gods. 

He was dancing to his own beat, wasn’t he?

Those of a certain age will only know of Trevor Francis the Sky pundit. However once upon a time he was Britain’s first £1million footballer. 30 year ago today, after nine months out, he scored a sublime hat-trick as player-manager for QPR against Aston Villa.
