RMcP: Paul Pogba, Wayne Rooney and the tactically undermined footballer.

The Euros. In the last four iterations of the tournament massively under-rated teams have won twice (not quite as jarring this time around as in 2004 but still a big deal), there can be no doubt that the continental competitions of Europe and the Americas are capable of delivering some really great entertainment.

Late Latcham goal wins the derby

The last time Melbourne Uni SC and RMIT had met it ended in a convincing 3 nil victory for the redbacks. Fast forward to Round 12 and Melbourne Uni had hit a good run of form and occupied third spot only 4 points from 2nd which would secure them automatic promotion.
