When your own player has to tell off the club Twitter account.
A 34 y/o ex winger vs one of the leagues best wingers…. he gets destroyed twice yet still manages to block the cross…. we should be applauding this not making fun of it #Respect https://t.co/AD5Nlyt7Mu

The highlight of the night was Eric Cantona, who could instantly make every award ceremony 100% more interesting.
Eric Cantona has just won the 2019 UEFA President’s Award and accepted it with a speech that rivals the seagulls following the trawler. Thank you, Eric.

When Zlatan tells you to move, you move.
The last word goes to Daniel Storey and Jon MacKenzie on the disgraceful situation at Bury, whose football club was expelled from the EFL.
Tonight marks one of the most disgraceful events in the history of the Football League. More should have been done, lessons should have been learned earlier. Governance has not been fit purpose. And because of that, a grand old club has died.

Human rights abuses come in all sorts. Just look at the Premier League clubs not paying the minimum wage to their workers.
