Bali United - THIS IS HOUR HOME

Over the past 10 years the practice of unveiling a new football shirt has became an art due to the emergence of clubs wanting those all-important social media views.

The latest club to try and do something a little bit different with a kit announcement is Indonesian side, Bali United, who have created their own pop song and accompanying music video to launch their 2020 jerseys.

"This is our home. The love, the love we give to you. You keep me strong. You are the spirit in my heart.

"Family, dedication, and loyalty. Our last name spells Unity.

"It's like nothing can stop us when we play on the field. Cause you'll never let me walk alone."

Watch the copyright at the end there, folks.

PLAYING LIKE A GIRL

St Mirren WFC beat BSC Glasgow 4-3 in the first home game of their new season at the weekend, but the result wasn't the aspect of the game to make the headlines.

Captain Jane O'Toole proved she is as tough as they come, in men's or women's football, as she falls awkwardly to horrifically see her knee cap pop out.

After a couple of attempts, she succeeds in putting it back in place with a forceful punch.

Did she continue the game? Of course she did.

FOOTBALL > EDUCATION IN BERGAMO

Last week, Atalanta enjoyed making history as they played their first every Champions League knockout game - a game which they impressively won 4-1 against Valencia.

For one young Atalanta fan, Eduardo, and his dad, it was an occasion that simply could not be missed. Which is why, the mum of the family wrote this touching yet curt letter to the boy's school excusing him from class in order to attend the game which was being played at San Siro in Milan.
