What a historic week for Carlisle United striker Shaun Miller. Last Friday, the 30-year-old was awarded the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month award for September after receiving 50% of the public vote for his hooked overhead kick against Barnet.
Three minutes into Bradford City’s Football League One match against Oldham, Bantams’ striker Paul Taylor dropped an absolute bomb from 30-plus yards out. The whistling effort flew into the top-right corner, giving Bradford the early advantage and turning Valley Parade stadium into the best kind of sh*t show.

With Coventry City trailing Forest Green 1-0 in English League Two football on Tuesday, one Coventry supporter took issue with his side’s inability to win the ball back and invaded the pitch to help apply pressure near the corner flag. Play appropriately stopped, but with security absolutely nowhere in sight, the fan proceeded to berate his team’s players before showing himself back to his seat.
The lack of security is obviously disturbing, but the hairdryer treatment was somewhat deserved with the team having failed to score in three straight matches now.
Over the course of a 19-year professional career, Arsenal No. 1 Petr Cech has built a reputation on being one of the most consistent and mentally strong goalkeepers on the planet. His reflexes are world-class and his concentration is never lacking — he’s keyed in for the entire 90 minutes every matchday. What’s the secret to his success? Based on this video, it’s the world’s greatest hybrid version of Bop It/Simon Says/college drinking game.
England has five teams in the Champions League for the first time and amazingly all of them are still unbeaten through three matches in group play. Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham all lead their groups with a combined 11 wins, four draws and no losses.
