Our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern today are full of debate over the shall we say slightly outrageous Sergio Aguero tackle on David Luiz and we have to say it is certainly something that should have been picked up by the referee. Football is never boring and this is just another example of exactly why we love the magic of the FA Cup – there is always something to talk about.
Another thing that we cannot get enough of from this weekend is the Demba Ba goal which we think is an incredible finish. Whilst nothing can beat some of the efforts that players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic can produce, this little turn and overhead flick is something we are more than happy to watch again and again.
Our punters are now engaged in debate over if this is the FA Cup goal of the season and whilst there are some pretty strong other candidates from a whole host of teams this is the one punters are most fond of. Whilst it could not save Chelsea or indeed take the focus away from the Aguero / Luiz drama not to mention the penalty that never was, it is perhaps the best thing to come out of that game – well for Chelsea fans at least.
Was Ba’s weekend strike the FA Cup goal of the season? If you disagree, submit your suggestions below.
