The Weekend’s tasty bits: Gunners flushed, Neymar brilliance & bullying Bayern

North London derby has bathroom sink thrown at it

It might have pretty well behaved encounter on the pitch during the North London derby as Arsenal shared the spoils with Spurs 1-1, but it was more than made up for off it by some Spurs ‘fans’ unhappy with the bathroom fixtures provided in the Emirates. The reason for porcelain masacre? Allegedly, this was pay back for the signs torn down at White Hart Lane during the League Cup in September.

Having taken the lead through Harry Kane following some generous Arsenal defending, Spurs continued to press their opponents relentlessly in search of a second. However, with each chance that went missing for Spurs, you sensed that Arsenal would eventually make them pay. And so it would be, as Mesut Ozil proved he is so good at assists, that he pretty much gave Kieran Gibbs no option other than to score the equaliser.

Neymar is a bit good at football
Just look at his face. You don’t pull that kind of face immediately after scoring unless it was something special. If you have some how managed to miss Neymar’s incredible goal vs Villarreal what are you playing at? Watch it here. If you have seen it and what to see an even better goal, check out this beauty by Inaki Williams for Athletic Bilbao.

Bayern launch frightening all-out counter attack
5-1, 5-0, 5-1, 4-0, 5-1. Those are the score lines from Bayern Munich last 5 home fixtures before they faced Stuttgart on the weekend who they then went and stuffed 4 goals past in a blistering opening 45 minutes. And if these raw figures don’t have you petrified then watch Bayern launching a frightening six man counter at break-neck speed.

The final word today goes to Salford City after the non-league side knocked Notts County out of the FA Cup. The team, partly owned by five members of Manchester United’s Class of ’92, who sit 59 places & three leagues below Notts County secured a historic 2-0 at Moor Lane thanks to goals from Danny Webber and Richie Allen.

Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt suitably losing their shit as the club they own score their second vs Notts County.

To mark the historic feat, Salford City players celebrate by singing a bit of a Rick Astley’s Never gonna give you (c)up.
