No handshakes at start

Until goals are scored with glee

Team hugs are OK?


n.b. How dumb are the football authorities? Ross Barkley at Chelsea was right in there on Sunday after every goal scored against his former team, Everton, embracing, pressing his head like a young bullock into the juvenile herd. In the olden days a handshake was often quite enough. Thank you for the recognition, chums.

BBC Match of the Day 2 ended its programme yesterday with top celebrations. I switched the programme off at this point. They showed the best ever celebration at the start of the programme; Dennis Law after his back-heeled goal for Manchester City that confirmed relegation of Manchester United in the 1970s. Dennis Law just walked back to position for the re-start despite the attention of his joyous team-mates.

  1. Fond memories of AFC v Shaktar Donetsk 2010. Gunners romping home-sub for SD was Eduardo who played for us and had a nasty injury couple of years before. Whole crowd chanting his name and willing him to score against us. Finally he did-complete pandemonium and ‘Eduardo, Eduardo’ ringing round the ground. SD players looked perplexed!!
