Erling clearly didn’t fall far from the tree. Alf Inge Haaland, ex Leeds-United defender, must be sick of living in his son’s shadow by now.

Chris Kamara might have hoped that his difficulty with Famara Diedhiou’s name had gone unnoticed on Saturday… Luckily for him, the Bristol City striker was more than willing to help him out for next time.
