Marcus Rashford’s brilliance managed to overshadow one of the greatest football walkouts ever


Paul Moore

I love it when a plan comes together.

In 2017 a crack football unit was sent to Vigo by a Portuguese manager for a match they didn’t relish playing. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security regime of maintaining possession under Louis Van Gaal. Today, some of their players are still wanted by some of Europe’s best clubs, they survive as stars of Manchester United. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the (Manchester United) A-Team.

Ok, they had injuries to some of their major players but then that opening gag wouldn’t work.

On a serious note, Manchester United have taken a massive step towards the Europa League final after beating Celta Vigo by 0-1.

Much like the previous tie against Anderlecht, Marcus Rashford proved to be the hero with a sublime free-kick on 67 minutes.

Prior to this whipped effort, the main highlight of the match occurred just as the two sides were emerging from the dressing rooms at half-time.

Yes, that’s right. Both teams came out with the theme tune to The A-Team blaring around the stadium.

It was one of those rare occasions where everyone was in agreement and 100% on board with it, whether they were watching at home or sitting in the stands.

No, not that mind-numbing borefest from that ginger chap, the fucking theme song from the A-Team… Hannibal, B.A. Baracus, Murdock… all the lads. Here’s a brief clip of the glorious moment.

Why on Earth were Celta Vigo using a combat sports-style walkout song? Why did they choose that song in particular?

These are questions that nobody wanted to know the answer to, as they just enjoyed some good old fashioned silly fun.
