Every Monday, theScore will highlight the most outlandish moments from the wacky, sometimes daft, and perennially entertaining world of European football. Here’s what made us smile – or cringe – on the pitch this past week.

Another week of football is in the books, and while many of Europe’s professionals avoided the cliche trappings of all things Halloween related, the seven days were no less bizarre.

Hawthorns carol worth a chuckle

While far from weird, it would be unfair to note all things trivial and entertaining in football without mentioning the performance by West Brom supporters at the Hawthorns on Saturday.

It would appear that Guildford’s celebrations extended beyond the pitch, as skipper Darryl Shaw was caught fist pumping in his birthday suit after leaving the match before the interval with a hamstring worry. Cheeky stuff that.
