Alright, so it’s not the end of the season, but when was the last time we missed an opportunity to publish pictures of footballers and their delicious offspring? Never, that’s when.

Sydney FC held a training session with their babies yesterday and of course, we were right there to bring you all the best shots.

Obviously not actually right there. International flights are a legal no-no for us right now and probably for the foreseeable future.

Titi is in London this weekend for the unveiling of his Arsenal commemorative statue. We can only hope the sculptor wasn’t obliged to replicate his shoes n’gilet combo. We’d prefer not to have to look at that for the next 100 years. Image: PacificCoastNews.com.

In a week where the whole of Manchester was thrown out of  Europe’s elite competition, we admirably restrained our ‘inner mean girl‘ while you lot let rip on Shakira’s new ‘do and Yoann Gourcuff reappeared on our radar, you may well ask what could possibly be left for us to report on?

Plenty, as you’ll soon see…

A minute’s silence was held prior to Melbourne Victory’s league fixture vs. Perth Glory this weekend, after it was announced that Luca Jones, son of Socceroo’s goalkeeper Brad Jones (above), had passed away.

Luca, who was five-years-old, had been battling leukaemia for eighteen months. He was diagnosed just prior to the Australian NT’s 2010 World Cup campaign, causing his dad to abandon his dream of playing in a major tournament and race to his side. At the time, Brad was playing his league soccer for Middlesbrough but has since moved to Liverpool.

Please join us in sending our deepest condolences to Brad and his partner Dani at this difficult time.
