WEST HAM KEEPER Adrian scored a goal straight out of the Fifa computer game during Mark Noble’s testimonial, but Breno Rodgers was quick to remind him who the Hammers’ number one is:

But did he assist a goal In a European qualifier against Germany. Up Darren Randolph! #irelandssavior

Darren Gleeson was among those paying warm tributes to Mayo’s Tom Cunniffe who is taking a break from inter-county football to go travelling:

Best of luck to Tom, he has given Mayo almost a decade of service at this stage and owes us nothing.

Aideen Thornton summed up a lot of people’s thoughts on Shane Power, the teenager who starred for Abbey CBS in the All-Ireland schools final, the day after his sister’s funeral:

Fair play to the young lad, that can’t have been easy. I’m sure he’s made his sister very proud.

Lionel Messi’s offer to donate his boots to a charity auction was branded as disrespectful in Egypt, but Colm McCarthy had an alternative explanation:

They’re wary of offers that seem too good to be true, they got burnt in a pyramid scheme years ago.

With concerns that Dr Hyde Park might not be playable this weekend due to surface water, Tom Kavanagh moved quickly to reassure people:

It’s grand as long as ya stay away from the deep end…..

Phil O’Meara was quick off the mark when Munster named their team for this evening’s game in the Aviva Stadium:

Two Hollands playing for Munster? That’s hard to interpret. It’s double Dutch to me…….

And finally for this week was this little exchange between John Buckley and Rudiger McMonihan following the announcement of the Ireland Women’s Sevens squad:

Imagine Ryle Nugent commenting on Amee Leigh Murphy Crowe scoring under the posts
I imagine he’d start off quite subdued for the first of the four names and build up gradually to the oooooooooowe part. It would be magical. Hopefully he reads the 42
