They say you should go back to basics when you are having a bad week.

Do the simple stuff and the rest will follow.

For us, that involves making the tea for the lads and massaging their sore little fingers from tapping the keyboard so hard during the week.

And for someone like Robin Van Persie it means thumping a 35-yard free-kick into the net for Fenerbahce.

RVP hasn’t had the best of weeks. The striker scored an own goal to knock out the Netherlands out the hunt for Euro 2016, and has been subject to various rumours of his unhappiness with life in Turkey since his summer move from Manchester United.

But he has answered his critics in some style today with this absolute belter of free-kick against Kayserispor.
