Ipswich Town take to troll Wolves by posting a brutally funny TikTok video with its view count quickly racking up across social media.
In the clip, Ipswich include the very short highlights of their Carabao Cup comeback, coming back from 2-0 down, to winning 3-2.
The audio however isn’t of that inside Portman Road, but instead, of Sky Sports pundit Wayne Mardle, and his famous piece of commentary where he ends up blaring out “I can’t speak” during Michael Smith’s stunning nine-dart finish in the World Championship final.
Mardle can be heard lost for words by Smith’s nine-darter in the second set, which came immediately after Michael Van Gerwen had missed his own attempt in what has been described to be the greatest leg of darts ever.
Mardle says: “One man misses, does the other man get? I have never seen the like. Come on Bully Boy. Yes! Double 12… That is the most amazing leg of darts you will ever see in your life. I can’t speak, I can’t speak.”

Wolves’ boss Gary O’Neil said after his side were beaten by Ipswich:
“We’ve named a strong team with 11 players who should be capable of winning here and we don’t, so it is my responsibility to make sure we get some more out of them.
“We are six weeks into a process and there is no magic wand. I can guarantee you when I arrived the place was not running perfectly and ready to go into a Premier League season.
“There are a lot of things that need fixing and of course I am willing to take responsibility, but the facts are you need some time to put things in place. That does not look like a team I have worked with for very long at this moment, which it isn’t.
“Do I accept that we need to get results? Of course. Do I want the fans to enjoy every game we play and come away and support the players? Of course. And we will work tirelessly to make sure we get it there and we will get it there.
“But there is no transfer window. The transfer window is closed and we are together as we are and need to get the maximum out of the group.”
Ipswich manager Kieran McKenna on BBC 5 Live: “I am really proud of the players. It has been a few years since the club has faced Premier League opposition. To go down 2-0 down so early on we needed to show our character and bravery to keep being aggresive on and off the ball.
“We deservedly grew back into the game and it was a great way to win it in the second-half.
“We are getting tested every week in the Championship, it is a big step up and one of our goals was to get a Premier League club and to test ourselves. It is a good marker for us and good experience from the players.”
On what it means to the fans: “It is a good value ticket and we appreciate the fans coming with numbers, it is up to us to give performances and give them a team to be proud of. The connection is great between staff, owners and fans.
“It is up to us to keep working hard and building them connections.”
On who he wants to face next: “Still some big teams in the competition and it will be great for the team. Whoever we get we will be happy that we are still in the competition.”
