And the way Nogo did it was typical Dipper Like!!
Having watched Sky Sports yesterday, I am at a loss as to why N’gog has not been taken to task by the FA for his mid air attempt at hand gliding. That dive by him was possibly the most exaggerated I have seen in a long while, there must have been at least six inches of air space between any part of his body and the foot of Carsley when he went over. I know it is not long until Christmas but his ‘Snowman’ type fly through the air was just beyond belief. At least some of the dodgy penalties given these days are open for debate, this however was just cheating!
Our own Eduardo was charged by the authorities within 24 hours for his ‘dive’ in the Champions League! Yes he was guilty we all know that, but there were mitigating circumstances with Eduardo. I know that doesn’t make it right, but Ngog’s was dreadful.
The Dippers get a wrongly awarded penalty and salvage a point. If they make a remarkable recovery this season and end up winning the league by just one point, the team finishing second will remember this incident.
Imagine if that second team turns out to be us…… Grrrr
Ok, I know, there is more chance of snow falling here in Berkshire today than there is Liverpool winning the league!
Talking of cheats, Barca annoy me! Every week we seem to hear from one of their players, today it Xavi’s turn to comment on Cesc and how he would love our Spanish midfielder to join him at Barca – Xavi, if you want to play in the same team as Cesc, trying calling Arsene and see if he wants to bring you to Arsenal!!
That’s another Grrrrrr this morning!
Bit of news about Nikki B – he was crowned Denmark’s Player of the Year and also won Goal of the Year award at a prestigious ceremony in Copenhagen on Monday night. The striker believes he will become one of the most feared marksmen in the world.
Bendtner said after picking up the two awards: “I had three aims this year – to get into the Arsenal team, qualify for the World Cup and to be Player of the Year. I have achieved them all.
“I want to be top scorer in the Premier League, top scorer at the World Cup and, within five years, I want to be among the best strikers in the world.”
Sadly, he has only managed one goal in the Premier League so far this season and is now ruled out until the New Year.
I know I go on about him and often in not such a positive way, but I really do want him to play like he keeps saying he can…
I always want any player who wears the Arsenal shirt to excel, but Nikki, 5 years?? Can you not make that 3….. 🙂
Finally, sad news this morning that German goalkeeper Robert Enke has died at a level crossing after apparently driving into the path of an oncoming train. He took over for Germany after our own Mad Jens retired. Thoughts go to his wife and family….
Have a good day in the sunshine……
