Unfortunately for Liverpool fans, history has repeated itself... again. A season of hope created last year has been followed by a term failure. And even while Brendan Rodgers will get another opportunity to set things right, it could be his last chance if he doesn't succeed.
It is entirely conceivable that a man could spend £20 on an Asos equivalent and still look his sharpest. It is also entirely conceivable that Manchester United could be restored to their rampant old selves without Ronaldo, Bale, Cavani or Pogba.
This weekend, matches across the country will fall silent for a minute before kick-off to commemorate the Bradford fire disaster, which occurred 30 years ago.
We need everyone to be on side. Two women a week in England and Wales are killed at the hands of a partner or ex-partner. 750,000 children witness domestic violence a year. It is not 'someone else's problem' - it is everyone's problem.
Wenger's Arsenal side are coming to their peak as a team. They put in a late joust at the title this season, they're overwhelming favourites to retain their FA Cup title, and they've got the potential to improve even further next season. Why would you take that stability and throw it out of the window?
With the quality players they have Chelsea had a good chance of beating United in a straight fight, but the players went out on the pitch prepped not to lose, rather than to try and win - the fact that they did get the three points was more a happy coincidence than anything else.
He is a champion the world over, super-talented and arguably one of the most impressive and successful wrestlers of all time but ultimately what makes him great is that Drew Galloway is a fan like you and like us...
The boat race might not quite be the Olympics, but as the buzz from the race dies down, I'm hoping it leaves a legacy of its own. I hope that it encourages women to look at rowing in a new light, maybe even give it a go! As those women proved, rowing isn't just for men.
The cobbled classics have a habit of surfacing some of the more incredible stories in cycling. Cobbles, dirt and an unknown amount of capricious weather systems elevate Belgium and northern France to an ethereal level within the sport during the few weeks that precede the grand tours.
It was a gladiatorial contest with a mercenary ending for Mark McCall's Saracens in their European Semi Final. Saracens rode the waves of emotion, they successfully silenced the forty thousand plus fanatical French fans and yet they fell short as one moment and one lapse of concentration cost them and Les Jaunards now edge ever closer to their greatest desire, the European Champions Cup.
Hands up any women who would like to be the CEO of a business ... Hands up anyone Blacks or Asians who would like to be senior member of a governing board ... Ok, now here's something really radical; hands up any Black or Asian women who would like to be the chief executive of a company.
When it comes to sport I would never proclaim to be an avid follower of single team or individual professional, however there's something very exciting happening in football that could see the power of clubs placed back into the community they serve. The community ownership of football clubs is gaining momentum and has the possibility to empower local fans like never before, away from the hands of the few and into the hands of many.
'They are a very good side'. Those were the words that Saracens' Director of Rugby Mark McCall used to described ASM Clermont Auvergne when asked about them in the immediate aftermath of his squad's victory over the Leicester Tigers in the domestic competition last weekend.
