The Joker is loose... POW! BAM! SHA-BANG!

Yup, Armenian Premier League top gun Cesar Romero fired a pretty 73rd minute decider at Banants on Sunday to give FC Pyunik a four-point cushion at the top of the table. The goal was his 18th on the league season and the victory was the eighth in a row for the Phoenix (not sure is that is actually their nickname, but Pyunik means Phoenix in Armenian and one stands on their crest).

And if you check the right column, you may notice his goal total jumped three instead of one; that is because he also bagged the opening double as Pyunik grabbed a 3-1 home leg win in their midweek cup semifinal opener.

I saw what you did there. It was a nickname that had to be.

And, wow, those venues are beyond depressing. One looks like a prison and the other looks like an East German trade school.

Where can he expect to go from here? Are Russia or Ukraine possibilities or will he end up with only a slight upgrade in leagues?

i used to follow russia's top 2 divisions religiously... from what i know players who wreck armenian league usually go 2nd or 3rd tier russia, and some work their way into the Russia PL, though there are a few who have gone to ukraine or elsewhere
