Analysis of the goal conceded against Aston Villa (6/5)
Ciaran Clark’s goal – Clark receives the ball, strides forward, and takes aim from 25 yards. The ball strikes Gallas’ shoulder and wrong-foots Friedel, finding the top corner.
Hutton finds Ireland in space beyond our midfield.
Sandro races back to close him down, but he finds N’Zogbia…
…who lays the ball back for Clark.
He has nothing out wide and no real options down the centre and so, with no pressure on the ball, he takes a pot-shot.
Gallas, more concerned with protecting his face than blocking the shot, turns his back on the ball, and it loops up off his shoulder.
Leaving Friedel wrong-footed.

I suggest that if Anon isn't a fan, he/she needn't bother wasting his/her time reading it in future!
Harry should be criticised for not substituted Defoe in and trying to get three points. It was a must win game if we want to regain the third spot to ensure a CL spot and finish above our rival.

Face it!! It was one of those freakish a**ey goals that no one can stop but which we often give away. You become a little less upset after 60 yrs of it believe me and I haver seen some whoppers.
I seem to remember a corner taken by a lower div side(FAC) and about a dozen heads went up and the wind blew it in with a gust that tore one of the flags out and our GK had caught it but over the line...no don't ask me as I cannot remember when or who
the woolwich player scores against us to keep woolwich above us?
If you didn't analyse the goals conceded then we would obviously keep clean sheets in every game.
You have created a cottage industry here and I am guessing that you pay the boys to concede just so you have something to do.
Our senior staff manager can't read anyway so he won't gain much from your blog.
