Contrary to popular opinion, it’s not only super hot boys like Erik Paatalu that attract our attention. As regular readers will know, we’re also fascinated by controversy, and there ain’t no controversy like a last minute disputed penalty in a title decider.

Hmm. That may come up. Congrats anyway, boys!
