weekend news (and matches)

Chatter from the sidelines </b>


Pictures
Due to sheer no of games played yesterday, will only do key pictures.

Southampton 6 - 1 Aston Villa. Mané did the fastest hat trick in PL history

I like the Saints uniform. Rumour has it that they broke up with Adidas (hence making their own kits inhouse) but Adidas lawyered up so the Saints have to finish their contract with Adidas, and will be wearing their kits next year. Moving on

Gerrard had his home last game at Anfield yesterday

Last of the class of 2005

The first two Gerrard girls seem to take after their mum, cool and beautiful. The youngest one seems to take after her dad, a turnip in a fruit salad.

But Crystal Palace stole the show and won, 3-1 in the end. Figures. LOL, I laugh. LFC's loss gives them 1 point of Spurs, 2 points off Saints and 6 off Swansea. I see you trying to avoid Europa, Brendan!

Balotelli posted a handwritten letter on Insta, then took it down. Can't win for losing, Mario

QPR beat Newcastle 2-1! Wow. I'd fill you in on the background but it's boring. Let's just say, both teams are headed for relegation, and leave it at that

Unfortunately, no fights broke out at the Everton vs West Ham (both are up for the fair play award, iirc, so people thought that the sides would start acting up to disqualify themselves from the award and Europa League

Only one yellow card was handed out in the game, iirc. People were placing bets for red cards. Shameful

Everton want Aaron Lennon, Spurs want too much money for him, stalemate

Spurs new kit in full. In motion it doesn't look too bad

The detail on the shorts is interesting. Lamela (finally!) played a good game throughout

Bundesliga

Bayern lost their third game in a row. The only good thing is that the tumblr people aren't so obnoxious now

Lahm and the other guy's name I can't spell

Freiburg is fighting relegation, Bayern already cinched the title, so guess who needed and wanted a win more?

Dortmund lost, so their Europa dreams hang in the balance. Beaten by the men from Volkswagen

I like the font used for Dortmund's lettering

Serie A

Morata's take on the 'deal with it' meme

Juve's backup goalie had a brainstormer of a game. His name is Marco Storari

Inter's kit is lovely. I'd buy it and rock it, but if anyone ever asked me for a player from inter, apart from their goal keeper, I know no one

Marchisio got a goal

Major League Soccer
All news of matches here because pictures of matches are thin on the ground

OP: done. Any cheers, jeers or commentary pushback, you know the drill. Am out walking because the sun's out - yayyy!! Will check back later
