Marca Lyon TEAMtalk

 Storm Ciara hit the headlines this week and claimed an assist, while in France there was an own goal of epic proportions, all in Social Shots.

In our weekly feature, we take a look at the best social media posts from across the world of football over the weekend. Football and social media can go hand in hand, but not everyone gets it right. Here, we celebrate those that do, highlighting the posts that have made us chuckle, the videos of wonder goals that we’ve just had to watch again, or just anything we felt simply had to be shared…

More pelters for Pickford

Now here’s a collectors item. Christian Benteke scored his first goal in 1,426 minutes of Premier League football on Saturday. Jordan Pickford an absolute shambles here by the way with this latest mistake re-igniting debate as to whether he should still be England’s first choice.

Benrahma buzzing again for Bees

The start of the winter break meant only two top flight games on Saturday. But who needs the Premier League when these silky skills from Brentford’s Said Benrahma can be seen in the Championship?

Can channeling his inner Le Tiss?

An absolutely disgusting finish this from Emre Can, who scored on his Borussia Dortmund debut on Saturday night. Pick. That. Out.

Storm Ciara claims Etihad fixture

With an amber weather warning in place in Greater Manchester common sense prevailed on Sunday as Manchester City’s clash with West Ham was called off.

The show must go on

However not everything was cancelled on Sunday due to the weather! Fair play to this Everton fan in the rascal Speedo’s who was clearly still buzzing from their 3-1 win on Saturday.

Glackin’s gone with the wind

And Jamie Glackin certainly wasn’t complaining about the weather as a goal direct from a corner gave Coleraine a 1-0 win over Glentoran in Northern Ireland.


England’s New No 1?

If Gareth Southgate is genuinely thinking about dropping Mr Pickford he could do worse than give this fella a run in the side. Fabulous save from Dean Henderson who enjoyed another tidy game for Sheffield United on Sunday.

Blades eye Champions League finish

Sheffield United won again on Sunday and amazingly have eyes on the top four. If it wasn’t for Liverpool, Chris Wilder would be an absolute lock for Manager of the Year. He’s doing an incredible job at Bramall Lane.

Marcal’s OG misery in France

Lyon defender Fernando Marcal’s Python-esque own goal helped Paris St-Germain to a 4-2 victory and open up a 12-point lead at the top of Ligue 1. Not sure we will see a better OG this season.


On this Day

26 years ago this very day Tino Asprilla made his Newcastle United debut. Legend has it he was drinking wine on the day of the game as he caught a flight to the UK before coming off the bench to help the Toon to a 2-1 win against Boro. Let’s all take a moment to enjoy the greatest debut-game nutmeg of them all.
