Classic YouTube: League Cup finals, a 46mph fastball and a snooker howler

By: Guardian sport Thursday 22 April 2021

This week’s roundup also features a Zoltan Gera stunner for West Brom and the fastest ever Super League try

1) It’s the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, though Spurs have dispensed with José Mourinho, a winner in 2005 (featuring a Steven Gerrard own goal), 2007, 2012 when John Terry got the winner and 2017, the Zlatan Ibrahimovic show. Manchester City are chasing their fourth straight League Cup, a feat previously achieved by Liverpool when they beat Everton in a 1984 final replay, the winner scored by Graeme Souness. Spurs last won the competition in 2008, beating a Chelsea team only recently managed by, yes, José Mourinho. Sunday is the 60th time a club will lift the Alan Hardaker Trophy. Enjoy this Wembley classic from 1967: QPR v West Brom featuring a young Rodney Marsh.
