It’s the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Wigan today and the FA have compiled what they believe is a collection of the best goals from this yearly show-piece game. There are a few noticeable absences, notably Micheal Owen’s goals against Arsenal in 2001 and Paul Scholes in 1999, amongst others. No doubt you will have favourites of your own which have been deemed not quite great enough by the FA committee which adjudged the greatness of said goals.
Still, there are some crackers in here to enjoy. If the betting on today’s game is anything to go by, one of the many goals Man City are expected to spank past Wigan should be a bit decent.
We’ve seen a lot of bets on City to win 8-0, 7-0 and 6-0 so far. It’s not just the City fans who fancy a one-way trouncing.
It is the FA Cup though and there is talk of it possessing magical qualities so let’s not count Wigan out just yet. Let’s at least wait until 5.30pm this evening.
