Boy did that feel good!
- Carles Puyol’s girlfriend, Malena Costa, was busy teaching Barcelona the next ‘big’ thing in goal celebrations over the weekend. That, or presenting Zumba fitness in Madrid.
- Sheree Murphy kindly confirmed for us that yes, her husband Harry Kewell gives her pregnant feet ‘the best’ massages. . Although she’s been living in England for many years, we also learned that Sheree’s temporarily moving to Melbourne and will give birth to the couple’s fourth child in Australia. All the best to the Kewells!
- Switching emotional gears for a second, we’re sad to report that Santos Laguna and Monarcas Morelia players and supporters were forced to scramble for cover after shots were fired in the 40th minute of Saturday night’s Mexican Primera Division match. One police officer was injured while chasing the suspected shooters, but it’s not clear what type of injury he suffered or whether it was the result of gunfire. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected.

- Chelsea and Valencia reached a deal (in principle) to bring Juan Mata to London while Atletico Madrid signed Falcao (and his abs) from Porto FC. For once, we’re actually enjoying all the summer transfer window activity.
- And finally, kudos to the Brazilian U-20 team, who were crowned FIFA U-20 World Cup champs following their win over Portugal.
