    To be fair, it was as much his overall inability to present as it was the material itself...

    As a stand up comic who has died more than my fair share of times at corporate events it's pleasing to see Idris's gag falling like lead in front of a completely disinterested audience, although I'm guessing he was paid rather more than I was for the East Midland Heating Engineers' Conference at Leicester Tigers.

    At the risk of thread drift, I am wondering if the Championship sees a particularly high number of screaming volleys from outside the box. I wonder if it's because there's a lot of players capable of doing them (which you don't get lower down) but the defenders aren't as composed as Premier League defenders, so are more likely just to head their clearances anywhere, which tees these chances up?

    Bit disappointed that none of the screaming volleys from the midweek games in the Championship back in April made it in (Neves, Evans and Grealish with the strikes for Wolves, Sheff Utd and Villa in those matches).

    Maybe John McGinn will get a look in next time.

    Riley McGree's for the sheer audacity is the best goal by miles there. As others have said, it wasn't even Salah's best goal of the season.

(There's also something somewhat awkward about Salah's Best Player nomination - or Courtois's gong for Best Goalkeeper - not tallying with inclusion in the World XI.)
    BBC thinking along the same lines.

    That probably wasn't even Salah's best goal that month.

    Bale's goal was so good it forced Cristiano ronaldo to leave real madrid, That's how good it was.

    But if you're ignoring that it was in a CL final, that goal by the australian guy is completely insane.

    Shouldn’t it just be for, I’m going to go out on a limb here, for the best goal?

    But Jesus, what a dog's dinner of an awards show that was last night. Idris Elba was so far out of his depth it was embarrassing: not being able to read an autocue properly is one thing, but I don't think it unreasonable to expect the presenter of football's most prestigious ceremony to have at least heard of Ferenc Puskas, let alone be able to pronounce his name. (Ditto Pierluigi Collina, who nobly ignored his surname having also come out as something completely unrecognisable.) This, on top of a succession of poorly-scripted and delivered gags, only increased the already-acute sense of discomfort apparent among those gathered.

    Don't know, give it back to Lineker next year?
    I went to last year’s inaugural awards on a work-related jolly. It was amusing as a cheesy, tacky night of silliness fueled by free champagne but, based on the twenty minutes I suffered at my son’s insistence last night, is gawdawful TV and Elba’s hosting has actually got worse.

    At least all the FIFA XI turned up last year too!

    Wasn’t the Puskas award a public vote? I thought it must have been hijacked by Liverpool supporters as the goal in question was against Everton?

    I was watching it in Croatian. Seemed funnier.

    started a topic Salah's goal? Really?

    Salah's goal? Really?

    Mo Salah's goal against Everton won FIFA's Puskas award. Good goal, but really the best of the season? I'm not convinced it was in the top three among the nominees.
