Lineker marshalled the studio well, Mowbray and Jenas made a solid double act, but the forgetful prime minister got a kicking

Football punditry can be a detestable sham. The BBC gave an ominous reminder of that during their Euro 2020 preview show on Thursday, when Gary Lineker said Micah Richards knew a lot about North Macedonia and everyone in the studio, including Richards, fell about laughing. Apparently the notion a highly paid analyst would swot up on one of the tournament’s lesser known teams was top banter.

But that was a lone outrage in a tolerable production and it is the privilege and the burden of the national broadcaster that it must try to cater to everyone’s taste. Including people who read the Sun, and there are still plenty of those three years after it masterfully encapsulated the decline of civilisation by beginning its newsflash on the shirt worn by Cesc Fàbregas in his first appearance on the panel of the Beeb, who had snapped him up after his...

The best players, greatest games and notable signings – plus those that didn’t work out, and what needs to change

Nick Ames Harry Kane – which might just be why he wants to set his sights higher than Spurs for the rest of his career. Thirteen assists to go with his 23 goals points to his development into the world’s best all-round centre-forward. Kevin De Bruyne has not been far behind while it has been fascinating to see Riyad Mahrez blossom into one of Manchester City’s most important players.

Before the season started we predicted where all 20 clubs would finish. We were right about one of them

It has been a strange season. Manchester City were eighth on Christmas Day but went on to win the title by 12 points. Manchester United lost six games at Old Trafford but remained unbeaten on the road. Liverpool didn’t taste defeat at Anfield for years but then proceeded to lose six games straight at their ground. Leicester spent more days in the top four than any other club but then finished fifth. And Arsenal ended the season with five wins in a row but still finished below Tottenham, who had a disappointing campaign despite having the player who both scored and set up more goals than any other in the league. Who could have predicted any of this? Not us, that’s for sure.

Pandemic football is not easy to predict. That’s our excuse and we are sticking to it. As you might notice below, we were not entirely successful in our pre-season predictions. But we were right...

  • PSG seal maiden title with 3-0 home win over Dijon
  • Lyon are denied despite 8-0 victory over Fleury

Paris Saint-Germain have won France’s Division 1 Féminine for the first time, ending Lyon’s run of 14 consecutive titles with a 3-0 home win over Dijon in their final game of the season.

Olivier Echouafni’s side were firm favourites to complete their title win with victory over mid-table opponents, having held on for a crucial 0-0 draw away at Lyon in the penultimate game. That left PSG, who have finished second in the league on eight occasions, a point clear of their rivals before the visit of Dijon.

Luiz Suárez’s switch to Atlético Madrid helped them to the league title as five teams lifted trophies

One day the phone rang and everything changed. “They called me from the club to see if I wanted Luis Suárez and I laughed,” Diego Simeone said. “I said: ‘Are you serious? Like mad. Go for him. Let me call him.’ I called and said: ‘Look, Luis, we have to win and you want to win’.” And so they did, the 2020-21 league season ending with Simeone laughing, Suárez sobbing and everyone going wild in a car park in Valladolid 195km from home, the trophy they had won handed over the following evening back at the Metropolitano, where the club’s anthem was sung live by Francesca and...
