Is going to the toilet a goal celebration?

dave clarkeMy striker has got a new goal celebration. He’s always been one for diving full length on his stomach when he scores, but he has changed it. At the weekend he ran to the corner flag after scoring a goal and used the corner flag like a microphone… not only that the other players pretended to be the audience jumping up and down in front of him. He’s obviously been practising that one with his friends!

Goal celebrations have become much more complicated since the days of putting both arms in the air when they scored. You only have to watch the goals from any of the top leagues to see babies being cradled, robotic dancing, boot worship and so on.

The week after the England cricket team retained the Ashes in Australia, ex-LIverpool forward Robbie Fowler celebrated scoring a goal for Perth Glory by holding up a replica of the Ashes trophy.

If any of you have players with special goal celebrations let me know, meanwhile you can check out the clips below and see my two favourites at the moment, “the toilet” and “the salmon dance”.

All that celebration over a PK (salmon dance)? You’ve got to be kidding me. Maybe if the guy missed, the opposition should pick him up and take his photo, but all that over a PK?

I think the best goal celebration is simply to raise one’s arms, or pump one’s fist, or recognize the person delivered the ball in the first place. In other words, act like this isn’t the first time you’ve ever scored a goal.
