This isn’t the first time we’ve been left tramatised and jonesing for cheese by events on Super Sunday.
But it’s without doubt the most visually arresting.
While AC Milan’s on pitch prowess has suffered with the loss of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, it seems that those left behind are making the most of their new found freedom. The big man is well known for dominating a dressing room, mainly by crushing the life out of everyone else with his own vast ego, but despite his rather unfortunate habit of karate kicking people in the face, other players looked up to him for his incredible goal scoring prowess.
Or maybe just because he’s really tall.
With those long winter evenings closing in, what better way to pass the time than to snuggle up warm and entertain yourself with irrelevant facts from the weekend’s European football fixtures?
Actually, don’t think about that too much that. Just read the post. Ta.
Chances are, if your team’s hopes of qualification took a knock, one of your club’s fiercest rivals probably shipped points too.
It was that kind of Champions League week.
