This week's Long Reads features a look back at the life and influence of Johan Cruyff, the best of the Batman and Superman franchises, and can you actually make money from blogging?

Elko Born: How Cruyff became more of an "ultimate hero" to the Dutch than any artist, king or queen

"In a certain way, I’m probably immortal," Johan Cruyff, who died this week at the age of 68, once said.

Of all the linguistically inventive declarations made by the Dutch maestro, this one is probably the most apt, especially in the context of the tragic mood that struck the Netherlands following the sad news of their legendary number 14’s passing. Among feelings of loss and grievance, there is an overwhelming sense that Johan Cruyff will never truly leave the people.

Ranking all 16 of the Batman and Superman movies from worst to best

In the wake of some "mixed reviews" but sure to be record-breaking box-office numbers, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has us taking a trip down memory lane of all of the Batman and Superman movies to date.

While there are some left off the list - apologies to all you fans of 1958's Superman and The Mole Men - we have ranked all the remaining sixteen Batman and/or Superman movies from worst to best.

Peter Carroll: Welterweight repeat against Diaz would be surprising for McGregor

Outside of Conor McGregor and Dana White, the MMA universe was surprised to hear that Nate Diaz is likely to get a second shot at ‘The Notorious’ after he shocked the world with his second round rear-naked choke win over the Irishman at UFC 196. Even more startling is the fact that the rematch is reportedly taking place at welterweight.

How to monetise your blog: "My blog finances my son's college education"

For blogger Sue Jordan, the question she's asked more than any other is ‘Can you actually make money blogging?’

"The simple answer is yes", responds Jordan "and I know this because I am currently guiding my two sons through college using just the finances raised through and because of my blog. As a single mum, just five years ago, I was living pay-day to pay-day. My ability to live off my blog is the true measure of personal success to me".
