Alan Pardew has given his view of what his goal of the season is, and it’s not Papiss Cisse’s goal last Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.
Ben Arfa mobbed after scoring against Bolton at St. James’ Park
There was a great piece of video – which is bring played again and again – of Alan Pardew laughing with Didier Drogba on the touchline, after Cisse’s goal in stoppage time, and Drogba is laughing and shaking his head in disbelief.
And it looks like Alan keeps saying “I don’t beleive it”, but it’s yet another good piece of video of Alan, which goes with his fist in the air defiance, after Cheick Tiote equalized against Arsenal in February of last year, as the lads came back to draw that amazing game 4-4.
Alan still thinks Ben Arfa’s individual goal against Bolton in the FA Cup, is the goal of the season:
“My goal of the season was Ben Arfa’s against Bolton because of the technical ability needed to do that,” “That’s taking nothing away from Papiss’ goal though because that was a guy at the top of his game who saw a slight opportunity.”
“You only take those when you are at the top of your form. It was the sort of goal Fernando Torres might have scored three or four years ago.” “That’s how you get those goals, when you are super confident.”
“And the first one was terrific as well – the way he flicked it up and scored was amazing.”
Well you decide – here’s Ben Arfa’s goal against Bolton.
And here’s yet another look at Papiss Cisse’s goal at Stamford Bridge.
