TOPIC: He chose not to celebrate against his former club

posted 11-12-2012 16:21
A team mate of mine (back in my Sunday League days) once refused to celebrate scoring a goal for us against a team he'd played for twice, three seasons before he joined us. We let it go.

Until the final whistle, when he was bodily picked up, given a lap of honour, and thrown in the biggest, muddiest puddle we could find (which, on our Sunday afternoon bog of a pitch was huge and very muddy indeed). Serves him right.

Not celebrating goals against old clubs is a nice touch. What with the transient nature of footballers careers and the amount of money they make nowadays its good to see that they still have an affinity for their old club and its fans.

It's more tawdry look-at-me-ism, I reckon. They've got fuck all affinity to anyone except their financial advisor.

By the way, I sincerely hope that no-one thinks that I'm upset with Burton celebrating other than being pissed off that a miserable money-grubbing ingrate scored twice against us. I probably should've put my post on the fourth division thread...

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo vows not to celebrate if he scores against former club Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League.

"I still speak with Ferguson, I miss him a lot, and I miss Manchester United," he told AS.

"I felt very good there, it was like a family. I had six great years there and am still friends with my team-mates. It is thanks to Manchester United that I am here playing for Real Madrid. Without them, I wouldn't be the player I am today."

My guess would be that in the event he scores the gesture will be well received by Man United fans.
