Typical - Best Cup Final Goal Ever? Liverpool Cheated!
So how on earth can the best ever Cup Final goal be Gerrard's "win at all cost and to hell with the spirit of the game, hit and hope" effort in the Greatest Sporting Robbery of All Time Final?
OK, we know the stereotype that they will have the wheels off your car if you park up in the dark, but how was Scaloni to know that the Scousers would cheat and break every code in the game as he sportingly played the ball into touch so a wounded Red could receive treatment? For pity's sake, Scaloni is an Argie! Now I have nothing against Argentinians, well apart from the fact that they provided a refuge for Nazis and elected their own Fascist governments, but something pretty horrible seems to happen to them when they pull on a football shirt. Let's face it, you would not look through footage of Argentinian games if you were putting together a programme entitled "Great Sportsmanship Through the Ages" would you? You'd be more likely to find something worthy of inclusion from Nero or Caligula!
But this was it, this was the great exception to the irrefutable rule that all Argies are cheating b******s on a football field (except for Tevez whilst he was at West Ham of course!). Scaloni did the sporting thing, Scaloni played the ball into touch so an opponent could be treated! And how did Liverpool respond, by ramming down the bemused Scaloni's throat his silly misconception that Brits believe in fair play. Step forward Jamie The Cheat & Traitor Carragher to give an instruction NOT to throw the ball behind for a goal kick at the restart but to throw it to Scaloni and press him. Poor guy, suddenly, as the ball arrived at his feet, he remembered the Belgrano! But too late son, too late! The torpedo was already being armed. Scaloni thumped the ball forward, Gerrard swung his boot and...well the rest is history.
Best Cup Final Goal ever? Best example of bad sportsmanship more like. If you want the greatest Cup Final goal ever, what about Brooking's stunning stooping header?
