  1. Goodbye

    Right well that's all from me for today.

    Here's a selection of today's best content to keep you busy.

    Thanks for joining me. I'll see you soon.

  2. Bayern back in the swing

    Robert Lewandowski

    Robert Lewandowski scored a hat-trick as Bayern Munich beat Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 to retain the German Super Cup.

    It was a revenge of sorts for Bayern, who were beaten 3-1 by Frankfurt in last season's German Cup final.

    You can read more about all that here though.

  3. Like father like son

    Timothy Weah

    Connoisseurs of football in the 1990s might remember a fella called George Weah.

    He was quite good. He scored bucket-loads of goals and played for Paris-St Germain and AC Milan. Oh and he won the Ballon d'Or in 1995.

    Well he's now the President of Liberia (what is it about former Milan players and Politics) and it seems his son, Timothy Weah, has picked up his golden touch in front of goal.

    Weah junior, 18, struck in the final minute of PSG's 3-0 victory over Caen.

    You can read more on that, and a certain Brazilian, called Neymar scoring here.

  4. 'Tackling spit and hatred' - Why I formed Kick It Out

    Now if you haven't had chance yet, this piece is a really good read - as Kick It Out celebrates its 25th anniversary.

    And it also comes with a warning note as it contains references some readers may find offensive.

  5. FA investigate allegation of objects thrown

    Ryan Fraser picks-up an object off the pitch

    The Football Association has confirmed it is investigating an allegation that objects were thrown at Bournemouth players from a Cardiff City fans' area last weekend.

    You can read more about that here.

  6. 'Fred has fitted in straight away'


    Former Manchester United defender Wes Brown has also been talking about the club's failure to sign a centre-back and the arrival of Fred.

    Manager Jose Mourinho of course has not exactly been thrilled about United's recent dealings in the transfer market

    The club were linked with Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld and Jerome Boateng but did not add to Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, all signed earlier in the summer.

    "The problem was last season a lot of the defenders were injured, he had to swap and change a lot," Brown said.

    "Fred was a good signing, he has fitted in straight away. Some teams have bought players and some teams haven't. People are always saying about defenders, but they had the second best defensive record last season."

  7. 'Pogba will have to get his head down and play'

    Paul Pogba

    Unrest what unrest.

    Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been linked with Barcelona and said he needs to be "happy" to give his best.

    But former Reds defender Wes Brown expects Pogba to "get his head down and play"

    "I'd like to know what he thinks he can't say, but he is still a Man United player," Brown said.

    "I think Pogba did well the other day, he had a great World Cup obviously. I don't really know too much about what's been said or talked about but he is a Man United player and I am sure he is happy there.

    "He scored a goal on Friday - the season has started now so he will just get his head down and play football."

  8. Garth's team of the week

    Martin Peters

    Just a reminder to take a peek at Garth Crooks' team of the week.

    Which player has the style of Martin Peters and who does he say could attract Real Madrid and Barcelona's interest?

    And once you've have a look at who Garth has plumped for here, why not pick your own XI.

  9. Adams & Powell become first managers to get red cards

    Derek Adams and Chris Powell

    Now this is a new one.....

    Plymouth Argyle manager Derek Adams and Southend United boss Chris Powell face bans after being sent off for a touchline altercation on Saturday.

    The pair were the first bosses sent off under new rules which allow referees to give cards to coaches and managers.

    Adams claimed he was "grabbed by the throat" by Powell, who said the Argyle boss was rude to one of his players.

  10. Post update

    Personally I'm not sure about that line Joe. I've heard 'Nest of vipers or 'Nest of tables' used before....but I've never made the connection with goalkeepers.

  11. 'Nest of top goalkeepers'

    Joe Hart

    While we're on the subject of goalkeepers. Joe Hart says he's "walked into a nest of top goalkeepers" at Burnley after impressing in their 0-0 draw with Southampton.

    The former England number one produced several second-half saves to keep a second successive clean sheet for the Clarets, after his £3.5m move from Manchester City last Tuesday.

    "I am so pleased to have signed here permanently," he said.

    "It's obvious the love I had for Man City, but I had to cut ties with them to flourish, so I'm over the moon to be here and it's down to me now."

  12. First Filipino in the Premier League

    Neil Etheridge

    It was quite a weekend for Neil Etheridge, who became the first Filipino to play in the Premier League and saved a penalty for Cardiff on Saturday.

    It made the Philippines the 114th nation to be represented in the Premier League.

    And despite their 2-0 defeat by Bournemouth, Etheridge believes Cardiff's home form will be "crucial" to their survival hopes.

    "We weren't favourites to go up last year and we proved people wrong, so that's the mentality we've got in the dressing room and we'll stick together," he said.

    "I don't think any of the boys in our dressing room are intimidated by the league, of course we know it's a step up, each individual in our dressing room has got to step up as well."

    Read the full story here.

  13. Goal king Cole

    I seem to remember at one time, former Newcastle, Manchester United and England forward Andy Cole's efficiency in front of goal was in question....

    Well have a look at these stats. Even the might Mo. Salah that is behind him.
