SOMEWHERE, OVER THE RAINBOW

It was a cracking first day of the year for Brentford as they ran out comprehensive 4-0 winners away at Bristol City to move up to third in the Championship. Said Benrahma scored the second of the goals, but his game will arguably be remembered more for this absolutely outrageous piece of skill which sees him pull off a 'rainbow flick' over the top of the head of his marker.

CHARLTON TAKEOVER COMPLETE

After years of uncertainty with Roland Duchatelet in charge of the club, with fans becoming increasingly angered and alienated under his tenure, Charlton Athletic have finally been taken over by East Street Investments. Things became so fractured under the previous owner that a group named Campaign Against Roland Duchatelet was formed by Addicks fans. Charlton currently lie 19th in the Championship.

AGGER SUMS UP HOW WE FEEL ABOUT VAR, SORT OF

Another week, another sackful of debates about VAR. However, while the rest of us bitch and moan in favour, or bitch and moan against, Daniel Agger has perhaps came up with the best take with regards to the rules - simply allow players to volley each other in the face like the good old days. Don't know what Robin van Persie will make of this, mind you...

NOT-SO-PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE JOSE

Jose Mourinho's mood changes like the weather, although to see it change within the space of a few seconds is quite remarkable. You'll know the first part of the story first - he got involved in a silly tiff with the dugout of Southampton during Spurs' defeat at St Mary's, with him appearing to look at the opposition's tactics sheet. It was yet another attempt to deflect from the severely abject performance of his team. Moments later, after he was yellow carded, he apologised to the referee, and to the fourth official. When asked about the incident afterwards, he had the following to say: "I was rude. But I was rude with an idiot. I clearly deserved the yellow card. I had bad words with the guy."
