weekend news roundup

chatter from the sidelines


Argentina's kit for Copa America 2015. Instead of the black stripes like they had in WC 2015, they now have the white stripes.

In light of the news that Steven Gerrard has invited his friends in the game for his last match at Anfield, this tweet pops up by Alonso and Reina, both chilling at Bayern (more Reina than Alonso, to be fair. Alonso be on that pitch working). Nice usage of social media

Alberto Moreno's English is getting better. Now here's a lad who knows how to social media. The first thing he did on coming to LFC was to set up an IG account, and look at him now

Varane on his way to the Elche vs Real Madrid match up. Elche lost 0-2.

La Liga
Real Sociedad 4- 3 Sevilla

Xabi Prieto cinched the winning goal in injury time to make it 4-3 for Real Sociedad

No pictures of the game. Huh. Pictures or it didn't happen, mates

Highlights of the game. Real Sociedad have moved out of the red zone into a respectable 10th place. Moyes seems to have stopped the rot on the side

Elche 0 -2 Real Madrid

This tackle happened

Silva already clocking more play time than Illarramendi...

Ronaldo scored, now the third highest scoring player in La Liga. So it's been a landmark match for Real Madrid for a lot of reasons.

Kareem sent a shout out to Casillas

Isco hailed as the player of the future, dazzled like a disco ball, got a standing ovation

Casillas celebrating his 500th match with the club- busman's holiday! The rest of the pictures are of Ronaldo and Bale. Nope.

Serie A
AC Milan 2- 0 Cesena

Giacomo Bonaventura opened Milan's account in the 22nd minute. No more match pictures, why?

One of the few kits that the Adidas stripe works with

Keisuke Honda !

Premere League

West Ham 2- 2 Spurs

Exciting match. West Ham smothered Spurs' press and initiated their own

Kane was smothered, not given any space to move.

Arial challenges galore. West Ham was up two, and Tottenham started clawing back 70 mins into the game

Spurs' defence failed them again, Lloris was making saves left and right

There was a set to with some rough tumbling. Vertonghen not pleased

Everton 2- 2 Leicester City

The toffees hosted the Foxes yesterday. It's a game that both needed to win

The Foxes were on fire

Everton weren't small shakes either

Kramaric's introduction to English football must be dazzling. He's in a side fighting relegation, every match is survival. He's getting more play time than he would at Chelsea (I'm sure Chelsea wanted this lad, but he wanted first team minutes)

In the end, both teams had to settle for a point.

Southampton 0-2 Liverpool

The Saints weren't pleased with Lallana and boo'd him for the length of time that he was on the pitch. He didn't perform well, tbh, and was yanked off

Southampton needed goals so they sent out Mané. Awesome lad, Senegalese national, has launched some screamers in his short time in the PL. In the same breath, we sent out Alberto Moreno as a sub. I gotta say, when Moreno came out, our defence felt tighter. A lot more sound.

gif of Coutinho's goal. Screamer!

Posting the picture because I like the composition. Man, that match. Southampton should have gotten a penalty, Mignolet had a controversy in that people thought he should have been sent off for handling the ball outside the box, etc. To be honest, Southampton have a great defence, but they haven't won at their home ground since the first week in January, and their goal scorers seem to have fallen off form. This will run and run

OP: right. Done. Any broken images, push back, comment, leave in comments and I will react as is appropriate. I might be away from this part of the world for the rest of the day, will do the CL matches this week
