Celebrating a Goal


Gem
Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

It's the period between Christmas and New Year, many of us are stuffed and can't move, but that doesn't stop our fans travelling to our games and giving it their all. So, when a player scores, its starting to bother me that they never show any passion or happiness. I know, they can sit down in the centre circle and blow raspberries at us if they got 30 a season, but with all the butterflies (Anelka), shhing (Drogba), shrugging (Belletti, Bosingwa) and generally looking like you've recently had to bury the family pet (Deco, J. Cole, bit harsh? I'm not in a generous mood) - have the players forgot who they're bloody well playing for?

I'm not picking up on it because he kissed the badge, but Lampard (and Malouda, but I won't sing his praises just yet) is the only player at the moment who even looks like he cares when he scores a goal. A couple of seasons ago when he just pointed to the sky it was a different matter, I think he may even be over compensating to try and rally the troops (shame Mikel can't shoot, he looks like he enjoys it)

I think Malouda reaction is genuine shock that he has scored. It's certainly the reaction I have.

I haven't seen Joe Cole be unenthusiastic with his celebrations. Against Pompey, he ran to the corner and had a huge grin on his face. That's better than Anelka's bloody butterfly. He doesn't really care when he scores anygoal for the past few years now. When he was a youngster at Arsenal he went nuts, but since then it's been the butterfly for years.

Yeah a lot of those gestures are for some sort of reason we don't really know about. I think Andy Johnson does a similar gesture, I think for some sort of charity, but it's been so long since he's scored I can't remember what he does! B) It's probably the same for Ronaldinho and his little finger thumb routine.
