It looks like Wolverhampton Wanderers now have a new second-coolest fan (Robert Plant, if you're wondering) in the unlikely guise of Mark Hamill, he of Luke Skywalker fame.

Despite openly admitting that he'd never head of the Championship side until a couple of days ago, Hamill is now a full-blooded Wolves supporter thanks to a rather adorable little mix-up on Twitter.

In tribute to one of their own, Airdrieonians have eschewed a shirt sponsor in favour of gracing the front of their home strip with the face of Mark Allison, the "super fan" who sadly lost his long fight againstpancreatic cancer in early 2016.

Indeed, the fan-owned Scottish League One side will play with Allison's portrait on their shirt for the remainder of the season though that's not the be all and end all of the gesture, oh no.

Folks expressing a disproportionate amount of emotion about Star Wars night should probably pick and choose their rage a little better.

Over the course of Friday night's D.C. United win over the New York Red Bulls, an underlying gripe surfaced. The apparent problem - that the team decided to hold a "Star Wars Night" promotion - could trump a rivalry in the eyes of some fans, as if they would be scarred for life when their favorite movie and their favorite sports team crossed paths.

Win, lose, or draw? No, seriously, what's going to happen in this game, because we're not sure.

It's almost the night we've all been waiting for, folks: Star Wars Night. Oh, also, D.C. United's biggest rivals are coming. But Star Wars!

It seems we can't all agree on an outcome for this game.

Naturally I was delighted and sought to give him a big thank you hug but he said he didn't want to be hugged but I insisted and when I hugged him he crumpled into nothing like when Darth Vader kills Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars.

However, coach Massimiliano Allegri took an altogether more philosophical bent, musing that should Juve somehow manage to oust Bayern in the last 16, their impending run to the final would feel like a cake walk in comparison.
