He stumbled?! Hahahaha
He stumbled?! Hahahaha
IMO it seems quite simple. He did it to avoid taking on the chance which when you're low on confidence (and lets face it crap with his right foot) becomes quite miss-able. Taking the easy way out and winning the pen meant he wouldn't have to risk messing it up - if Suarez had been up there with him he'd have squared it to him rather than shoot most likely.
But, Krul didn't come steaming in and his dive was blatant so the whole thing backfired.
35m pounds worth of ****- house
He was hardly taking on a chance, it was an open goal. He could've slotted it in no problem, dead centre, around the keeper, no defender on the line. The man might be a complete donkey, but he's still capable of scoring in an open goal, regardless of which foot he has to use
I'm not defending how bad it was - i just think its more likely he took the dive to save himself having to take the chance himself rather than a dive so he wouldn't score against his old club.
It fell onto his right foot which is no more use than an ashtray on a motorcycle. He decided to go down and he couldn't even do that convincingly.
There was more chance of him getting sent off yesterday than scoring.
And even if he ******* stumbled, which is unlikely, that's still his fault and doesn't absolve him from blame - he shouldn't be "losing his balance" in such a crucial situation.
I have no time for conspiracies but in this case i honestly thibk sone other forces were at work. Its unforgivable for a player to fall over like that. His show of amger at the end was also out if character.
Either way his goose is cooked at Anfield. Waste of time effort amd money.
Whatever reason he had for deciding to go down instead of try and score there, they're all equally worth getting rid. I don't want a striker who doesn't try and score, whatever the reasons.
He should of hit it with the outside of his left foot, early as poss, over the keeper..... Well thats what a Van Persie would have done. Heck even i could of done it.
It looked to me asif soon as he took it away from Krul, onto his right foot, he didnt want to attempt it with his right incase he fell over/missed and had the staidum laughing at him. Thats why he proceeded to dive.
I love how freely people try to give Carroll MOTM nods these days ...
He must have about 5-6 now despite being mostly horrific all season ...
The comedy continues.
I think he didn't appeal for a pen because he realised how awful his dive was.
