Antonio’s celebration inspired by Homer Simpson

Michail Antonio has confirmed his bizarre goal celebration was inspired by cartoon character Homer Simpson.

“I watched The Simpsons Movie the other day and I saw Homer do it, and I thought it looked hilarious so I’ll do it if I score,” Antonio told WHUFC.com

“It was all planned, I told Nobes, I told Reece – I told all the boys and they said no way I’d do it, but I did! I think I pulled it off!”

The celebration mimics the scene created by Homer in the Simpsons episode ‘Last Exit to Springfield’, Antonio wheeled away before hitting the deck and spinning with his legs.

  1. He doesn’t want to admit that he was actually inspired by Jeremy Vine in Strictly last year

  2. The proof keeps coming that Slav’s decision to build his team around an attacking midfield was the most important one he made.
    The goals and where they have come from has been the key to our season. Thank god he didn’t succumb to the endless howling last summer to blow the budget on a so-called twenty plus striker, whose main contribution would more than likely have been keeping Carroll from feeling too lonely
