The Onion Bag: Man Utd's Blockbuster Signing and Zlatan's Perfection

Ryan BaileyFeatured ColumnistOctober 24, 2013

This week's Onion Bag kicks off with a story of World Cup corruption...sort of. It has been announced that The Simpons will be heading to the 2014 World Cup in a future episode, where Homer will become a referee who is tempted by match fixing. 

Next up, we look at former Manchester Utd assistant manager Mike Phelan, who claims that the Premier League champions would have made a blockbuster summer signing if Sir Alex Ferguson were still in charge.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is an unstoppable force in world football right now—and this week he unleashed an unstoppable 93 mph shot! Are the Swede and Edinson Cavani the best strike partnership in the world right now?

And finally, we consider Bayern Munich, whose quest for perfection isn't over yet.

Leave your comments and weigh in on the Zlatan/Cavani debate below, then come and say hi to me on Twitter.
