It just showed the abuse really gets to him in my view. I think it was an over reaction for sure but to some real bad constant years long derision.
I feel for the guy. I think he trains and has the attitude of a top pro. His body has let him down.
the funny thing is if he ditched his silly technique of knuckle pucking it and actually placed it he'd score far more. a lot of his goals from FKs are where he ditches his "trademark" strike. he basically only ever scored doing that against portsmouth and fulham.
