Shane Duffy Is Having A Worse Week Than You

I'm sorry, I don't actually know if you're having a worse week than Blackburn Rovers defender Shane Duffy. I don't mean to be presumptuous. It's quite possible you're having a worse week than Shane Duffy. If you are, hang in there. Get some sleep. It gets better.

But if you're not having a worse week than Shane Duffy, and it's very likely you're not, feel free to revel in this man's misfortune (soccer misfortune, obviously — real-life misfortune is nothing to revel in).

Sorry Leicester City Fans, The Fairy Tale Is Over

Fairy tales are great. Mythical stories filled with heroes and villains, they convey a message that gives us something to believe in — something to warm our hearts. Fairy tales can transport us from our normal reality to something far greater. 

The 2015-16 Premier League was a fairy tale for Leicester City. Now, it’s back to reality. 

Someone Rick-Rolled Adidas' Paul Pogba Man U Intro Video And It's Perfect

Paul Pogba's Manchester United introduction video was sweet when it was Pogba and "Stormzy", but it's even better when it's Pogba and Rick Astley.

This is a fine example of something we didn't know we needed until it existed.

Adama Diomandé's Goal Was Absurd And Awesome. Absurdly Awesome We Will Call It

"Hully" s**t what a goal!! Adama Diomandé sure made Hull's first goal back in the Premier League a spalsh. The hosts surged to a 1-0 lead with just moments left before the half time whistle after Kasper Schmeichel made one great save but could not contain the acrobatic bicycle kick from the man in gold and black. Leicester did not look like the unbelievable team they were last year but hey cut them some slack, lots of pressure to take on Hull in their first match up.

Watch All Seven Sensational Goals From The Liverpool And Arsenal Thriller

Football is back and, apparently, better than ever. Liverpool and Arsenal played out a seven goal thriller in London, the Merseyside club racing to a 4-1 lead before surrendering two late goals and giving Arsene Wenger’s men a brief moment of joy.

Soccer’s Greatest Viral Sensation Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop

Will Grigg shot to global prominence last year on the back of a fan chant turned dance remix that entered the top 10 of the UK Charts. He also scored 25 goals in 40 matches for English League One side Wigan Athletic — firing them to promotion into the Championship. 

Leicester Open Title Defense With Horrific Loss

Leicester City opened their title defense in the worst possible fashion on Saturday, losing to a newly promoted Hull City side whose own preseason has bordered on the shambolic.

Leicester became the first ever reigning Premier League champions to lose their opening game, and they’ve been defeated by the early favorites for relegation, Hull City.

Leicester’s far-reaching preseason, including matches against Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, doesn’t appear to have sufficiently readied the East Midlands club. 

Aston Villa Are Back And Scoring On Themselves At Will

For Aston Villa, keeping the ball out of their own net has become akin to keeping an ice cube frozen in Hell. They were relegated from the Premier League after giving up an astonishing 76 goals last year, and they’ve now somehow managed to ship three goals to League Two side Luton.

The pick of the bunch was certainly Luton’s third — a calamitous own goal scored by Villa's Jores Okore. Under absolutely no pressure whatsoever, the Denmark center back somehow managed to cooly tuck away an opponent’s cross into his own net.

Lamela Is Pretty Good At Soccer

LAMELA! OH THAT IS BRILLIANT!! And brilliant it was. A gentle yet powerful left footed curler added to the beating as Tottenham demolished Inter Milan. Look for Lamela to assist Harry Kane in this season for Tottenham as they attempt to snatch the title that they couldn't quite grab last year. A 6-1 beating of Inter Milan was another step for Tottenham as they look to get things started the right way on August 13th against Everton at Goodison Park. This second goal for Tottenham was a sumptuous finish courtesy of Erik Lamela. Fantastic finish and placement.
