Bangers only

Hi, everyone!

Above we have former Tottenham left back Reto Ziegler (who is now in MLS with FC Dallas), and immediately below we have one of Eric Dier’s dogs, which I only mention because I dug up an old picture of another one of his dogs for Friday’s ramble only for him to post a new one!

Ramble of the Day

We football starved people deserve this, a truly spectacular goals of the month package.

I think I internally gasped at each and every one of these goals, in part out of disbelief at how bangers just kept coming. I’m stuck between Matthew Taylor’s very long distance effort and Didier Drogba’s turn plus long range shot, though every goal is special in its own right. I think I appreciate Drogba’s goal just a little bit more, so I’ll pick that one, but I also owe you the information that it was Paul Scholes that ended up winning the prize.

tl;dr: Look! Goals!
