Hello and good morning, footie fans, welcome to another packed
Here is what's coming up on today's show.
It if it's skills you want, you've come to the right
place, as we look back at some of the belters from last
week's FA Cup games, and Mr John Farnworth is here
with a selection of skills to improve your game.
Sometimes great goals are scored at the wrong and too,
and we celebrate the art of the epic foul with our collection of
fantastic own goals.
And we've got more skills from the real superstars
of Kickabout, and that's you lot.
There's so much to talk about, but first here's the big
football stories making the headlines this week.
On Thursday, England legend Frank Lampard announced he's finally
hanging up his boots.
After winning three Premier League titles, four FA
cups, the Europa League and the Champions League.
We think he'll spend his free time polishing his
Well done, Frank.
He might just give Hull City a chance here.
Hull's Hernandez had a penalty nightmare
last weekend, he missed two in two minutes.
His first pen was saved, he was fouled again.
Takes another spot, and then he gets it saved
Unbelievable, but well done to the keeper.
In the past, the January transfer window has produced
But if we are honest, this year just seemed
a bit boring.
Even though a whopping ?250 million was spent, sadly for me,
one of the bigger stories was West Ham finally saying goodbye
to an unhappy Dimitri Payet.
See you later, and thanks for the memories.
Onto the FA Cup now and the fourth round was full of drama, with
some cracking goals.
Here's our pick of the best of the weekend.
Drops for Hayes.
It's a sixth goal of the season.
It's Willian, it's in.
Brilliant free kick from Willian.
13 played, Willian curls in the free kick.
To give Chelsea the lead, his seventh goal with the beautiful
Blackburn might come forward.
Elliott, shoots, and what a strike that is.
It is 2-0 to Blackburn Rovers.
Lucas Perez, Danny Welbeck!
Danny Welbeck finishes in fine style.
Cushioned to Rooney.
Martial to the left-hand side.
Finds him and into the centre himself.
It is Manchester United, three,
Wigan Athletic, zero.
They were in full flow, Manchester United, that's
when they are at their best.
For the first time ever, there will be
two non-league teams in
the fifth round, thanks to the heroics of Sutton
United and Lincoln City.
And they weren't the only ones to pull of a giant-killing.
Lovely cross, Morrison!
Millwall of League 1 lead Premier League
Millwall get the goal.
And the lions roaring now.
Doherty, calmly done.
Releasing Helder Costa.
He is still on, and here he is, Weimann.
It is two.
This is unbelievable.
Liverpool 1, Wolverhampton Wanderers, 2.
And an own goal separating the two teams,
might get worse for them here, it's Robinson, it's three,
it's all over for Brighton!
And Lincoln City, for the first time in 115 years, surely
through now to the last 16 in the FA Cup.
Goalkeeper has come and he hasn't got there, and Sutton claim
a penalty and they get it.
Collins for Sutton.
And there it is, they've done it again, Sutton United
are into the fifth round.
Fantastic, some real belters in there.
And of course in any match, the best players can make an impact
with just one moment of magic.
Here to take a closer look at some of these game
changers is our very own Mr John Farnworth.
How are you doing, lovely to see you.
Good to be back.
What have you got for us today?
So my first clip is from a Toure free kick, which is an amazing
But what struck me about it was, I will just pause it, is his
It's almost Beckham -esque.
It's a bit old school.
Players at the minute are taking up the straight
run, Ronaldo particularly.
Something we call a knuckle ball.
The inside of the foot straight through.
Toure is taking it at a right angle.
We see where the goal is here.
That is for the instep, the curl.
You've just said it.
The instep, the curl, straight into the
I think the keeper even knows where it's going, but it's
that inside, it's that far in the corner, there's no
chance of getting it.
An incredible goal from Toure.
And my second one, from my team, Manchester United, it's actually a
piece of skill from Schweinsteiger, we see in the goal already
on this show, one of the best goals of the
But it's this piece of skill here.
I'm going to pause it because as the ball comes to him, he's
already knowing what is happening, his vision, he is ahead of the game.
He may not be the fastest player on the pitch,
but it's almost like a
game of chess, he knows where it's going.
So you've seen Rooney and he's going to play it perfectly,
through the ball, inside.
He's played him in, and as we know, it finishes with a goal.
We see it again, the technique, straight with
And then Rooney, the same.
It's perfect precision play.
But really with Schweinsteiger, what I would want to do point out
was the dedication and the never say die attitude.
He could have given up on his Manchester United career, he
was out of favour with Jose Mourinho, he's not played all
He comes in, he took his chance, so the guys at home
watching, it is so important not to give up.
And that's a perfect example from a World Cup winner.
Brilliant stuff, John, thanks so much, as usual.
But I'm not letting you go.
Without showing us some of your freestyle moves.
Look at this, he's unbelievable.
Do you remember what I showed you?
Let's have it.
How is that?
We better watch our back because these have
got the skills too.
First up is Liverpool fan Ewan, who has found a
new use for his toy theatre.
Yes, look at that, straight through the
Next up is Riley racing through on goal, can he finish?
Yes, he can, pick that out.
Now then, we've got Stanley battling for the
Then goes the shot.
Oh, what a goal.
But that's not all.
Here is Stanley again, and that's exactly how you take a corner.
What a goal, look at the celebration as
well, he loves it.
Unbelievable, and please keep those videos coming
in, we love seeing them.
Now from super skills to Super Bowl, this
weekend sees one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
And we asked a Super Bowl superstar for his
dream five-aside team.
Hello, Kickabout, my name is Osi, Umenyiora , two-time
Super Bowl winner with the New York Giants.
I'm here to discuss a couple of things with you guys.
My dream five-aside to start with the
goalkeeper, and I'm going for Thibault Courtois.
Big, tall, athletic, rangy, can go from side to side.
He makes incredible saves for Chelsea.
COMMENTATOR: Look at that touch from Courtois.
Next up, we have Jan Vertonghen of Tottenham.
This guy is an outstanding athlete.
Actually had the opportunity to meet this guy,
teaching a couple of my moves.
A great individual, a great person,
and also a great player.
I'm going to have to go for myself, the
captain, right centre defensive midfield.
And I'm going to go for my favourite midfielder
ever, Andres Iniesta of
I know everybody knows about Messi, Neymar or Suarez, Iniesta
is the guy who makes it happen.
COMMENTATOR: Now it is Iniesta, this is in, that's the goal, Spain
have surely won the World Cup.
Last but not these, we have my hero, my
personal favourite person on planet Earth, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
This is a tremendous guy.
This is a guy who does it all.
Scores goals, runs about, physical, aggressive, and
incredible personality, I'd love Zlatan Ibrahimovic up top for me.
I tell you what, that is not a bad side
at all, some great picks there.
But even your striker, Zlatan, failed to find the net this week.
In fact, none of the teams in the top
six managed a win apart from Manchester City, and that, I'm sad
to say, was a 4-0 thrashing of my beloved West Ham.
But things could change again this weekend.
First face third in an epic London derby
at Stamford Bridge.
And there's a real 6-pointer at the bottom, Crystal
Palace playing Sunderland, and both sides desperately up for points.
That's going to be a good one.
Now we know loads of you love playing
football, but what if your team just kept losing all the time?
Well, that's exactly what was happening to
one team near Manchester.
Timperley Villa under twelves.
They were having a miserable time.
But the answer was right under their noses.
All they needed was some girl power.
And we sent Ben out on a cold night to get the story.
Paul, you are the manager of Timperley Villa under twelves,
and it looks like things are going great here tonight at
training, but it wasn't so much the case only a few months ago.
Can you tell us your situation?
Each game we were only getting roughly
seven, eight or nine players turning up.
It was annoying because we kept on losing with eight players.
It was too hard.
We finally came to a solution that worked, and that was
the girls squad with inside our own club.
So we've got Mia, who is a strong defender for us, and we've
got Grace, who is a strong, talented midfielder.
We saw a difference almost immediately.
It kind of felt quite normal, really, because they
are basically the same.
Mia can defend well, and Grace can skill
And it basically just improved our team by quite a lot.
They like the banter we do so I guess they are OK.
I've got Grace and Mia here.
Girls, it's great to see you.
And well done for braving this horrible cold weather.
Yes, it's freezing.
Do you mind it being cold if you're getting a
chance to play football?
No, we just play whatever the weather.
Talk me through your first match, then?
I felt very intimidated and just stuck
to Grace the whole hour.
Would you now consider a lot of the boys on
the team your friends as well?
Yes, we get along really well.
And at first it is a bit shaky, but we got
to know each other and are all friends.
Would you say that you are better than a lot of boys in the
Would they admit that?
Great stuff, and good luck to Timperley Villa.
But as for the coach, you've got to learn to duck
mate, check this out.
I love a blooper, me.
Sometimes when things go wrong, you've just got
Derby's Darren Bent is a great striker who's so good he scored
at both ends against Leicester.
Oh, look at that.
So we decided to pick out some of the best own goals of
all time, and you are going to absolutely love this.
Until next time, see you later.
COMMENTATOR: And that has gone on, it's an own goal.
He has stretched his foot out, put it past his own keeper
and put National League Eastleigh into the lead in the sixth minute of
the second half.
And he's in a great position in the middle.
And it's going to be an own goal.
It's an own goal.
West Ham have taken the lead.
It is Jamie Carragher.
Lovely delivery, goalkeeper, it's an own
Watford are ahead.
Into the feet of Lukaku, that is well played.
Driven in, own goal.
Own goal, Chris Smalling.
1-1 at Wembley.
It is a bad own goal from Chris Smalling.
Probably should have tried to clear it with his left foot, not his
Certainly in FA Cup history it has to go down as the best.
I'm Ali A and this is Superchargers.
