Bristol City will be taking its fantastic goal GIFs straight to the Carabao Cup semifinals, joining Premier League giants Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal after knocking off defending champion Manchester United on Wednesday.
A 2-1 victory in the Bristol City vs Man U quarterfinal spurred remarkable scenes at Ashton Gate, with local fans storming the field and one man even giving a kiss to match winner Korey Smith.
It’s hugely unfortunate for Carabao Cup quarterfinalists Bristol City, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s feel-good return following last season’s significant knee injury found its happy ending Wednesday after the big Swede scored in his first start of the 2017-18 season.
It’s a deflected effort from a free kick that should’ve never been awarded, but Bristol’s anger is Zlatan’s sweet redemption. Ibra has made substitute appearances for United in both the Premier League and Champions League over November and December, but the 36-year-old was handed his first start in the League Cup.
It’s not football’s best kept secret, but Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone has confirmed that much like Radamel Falcao and Diego Costa before him, 26-year-old center forward Antoine Griezmann will be allowed to leave the club for “a once in a lifetime chance to play for a certain team.”
Oliver Kahn is a giant of the game. The 2002 World Cup Golden Ball winner with Germany spent 14 years at Bayern Munich, winning eight Bundesliga titles and a Champions League. But what if he had left Germany to play for Manchester United when Alex Ferguson came calling in 2003? The paths of Bayern, United and even U.S. soccer would have played out much differently.
Hello folks! We are back with our second show this week for matchday 18.
With such a quick turn around, we are going to give you some more options for transfers this week, as teams lineups could be changing with the plethora games going on. Lets get to it!
Abdoulaye Doucoure (Watford)
There is just something about Watford when they are playing in their home at Vicarage road. Plus huddersefeild has been dreadful playing away. Doucoure is a steal for 5.4 pounds.
Idriss Gueye (Everton)
