So what did y’all get up to this weekend?

Cristiano Ronaldo got the weekend off, but an Isco brace pushed Real Madrid that much closer to the La Liga title.

Tony Adams apparently needs to kick arse a little harder, after his managerial debut didn’t go as he might have hoped.

In France, kickoff between Bastia and Lyon was postponed for an hour, after Bastia “supporters” stormed the pitch and attacked Lyon’s players as they were warming up.

Tim Howard also got into an altercation with a fan, albeit a purely verbal one (NSFW language). This little spat in last week’s match against Sporting Kansas City cost Howard a three game suspension, the first game of which Colorado lost last night.

Panamanian national team player Amilcar Henriquez was shot and killed as he left his home on Saturday.

Back in the early 2000’s, West Ham signed two of the best players in the world at the time, Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano. How did a club who had finished ninth in its domestic league manage to sign two superstars? Shenanigans, that’s how.

When is a £312 million annual revenue loss for the Premier League not actually a loss at all? When a league is forced to change its accounting rules due to Brexit and the resultant steep fall in the value of the pound.
