Happy Monday! Is that a thing? I don’t know.

Chelsea might be dropping points thanks to their indiscipline.

Real Madrid are now unbeaten in 35 games.

A bombing outside Besiktas’ stadium in Istanbul following Besiktas’ match with Bursaspor has left 38 dead and 155 injured.

Will this be the highest scoring season in Premier League history?

Jozy Altidore and Christian Pulisic both won awards - Altidore as Male Player of the Year, Pulisic as Young Male Player Of The Year - from the USSF.

The Seattle Sounders, after being in last place as late as June, are your 2016 MLS Cup winners, winning a penalty shootout 5-4 after a match that ended 0-0 and which saw them register exactly zero shots on goal. Which ultimately doesn’t matter, because they won. Why did they win? Stefan Frei, that’s why. That save was impressive.

Urban climbers made their way into both the Emirates and the London Stadium recently.

Last, but not least: Theo Walcott won a coffee maker! Who says footballers don’t live a rock and roll lifestyle?
