Sarmiento Goal , a couple of observations 11:04 - Apr 3 with 3701 viewsSamuelowen88

Firstly, the defending is shocking, there is no way, after he slips he should be first to the ball, they both just give up.

Look how much it means, not just to those you would expect it (Chappers, Morsy, Clarke) but to loan players, and new players Al-Hamadi and Omari both involved in pile on. This teams togetherness and team spirit is insane.

Davis, doesn't join the pile on. Walks calmly back to our half. Is there some rule that one player has to be in the half (like the rule if everyone is off the pitch?) Or is he just absolutely knackered.

Hladky knee slide 1/10 although as a keeper probably doesn't have much practise

Defenders get tired towards the end of games. They are rarely replaced so are vulnerable, especially if energetic impact subs like Sarmiento can be brought on. That's largely why a high proportion of goals are scored in the final quarter of football matches.

I'm pretty certain Burgess normally stays back for celebrations, for that rule alone. He certainly did for quite a while anyway.

It's the slip on the first touch though, it threw everyone off. The reaction in NS5 was the start of a groan followed by the realisation that the ball was heading right for the corner off the second touch.

Southampton looked knackered late on too, once AAH hit the post their composure at the back disappeared like ours had in the first half.

I think Davis was absolutely cooked. The guy is a machine, the amount of running he gets through in a game is nuts, and nowadays we're talking 100 minute games twice a week. To still be bombing up in the 97th minute and having the awareness to find the pass, he's sublime.

Yeah thought the game started to swing on that moment. Felt as though players and crowd alike realised we could get at them and they weren't so intimidating. Think that gave AAH a bit more confidence as well - struggled to get going before that but made a few really strong runs with the ball that had their backline looking a little panicked.

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

There is no rule about one player staying back.

Those 20 minute cameos Gregg Leigh played last season added up to a quite a lot, should have been able to do the same with Williams too this season but unfortunately....

I got stuck at work and ended up watching Bristol City on Sky so felt a bit like you do about that one. Absolutely delighted but....

So yes, glad I made up for that Monday. The celebration was one of the best at PR, someone mentioned Gunn's airkick earlier, it was up there with that, Bolton 2000 and the Sheffield United comeback.

Terry Butcher said the other week that when he was managing in Australia the referee allowed the opposition to kick-off even though they had one outfield player in their own half as the others were celebrating. Fortunately, the one managed to win the ball!

Morsy gets a lot of plaudits and many would like to see him get Player of the Season, but for me Davis is just as important. Arguably more so given our strength is creating and scoring.

I don't think it's a coincidence that our form dipped when he was unavailable.

Reminds me of that England game where Sol Campbell thought he had scored the winner and the argies were allowed to restart and we almost lost. There would have been an uproar if they had scored and we had lost so unfortunately.

I didn't realise it had gone in at first. Looked to me like the ball was running along the hoarding behind the goal. But then everyone erupted.

Or Town at Watford when Danny Haynes and Jaime Peters were celebrating and the goal was disallowed.

Indeed, George O'Callaghan had already been (wrongly) sent off on his first Town start or removing 15st of Danny Shittu from his posterior so we effectively had only 8 players on the pitch.
I have rarely been as gutted to lose a game as that one, with 10 man Town outplaying Watford for most of the game, having Haynes's goal controversially disallowed & then an ex-Budgie scoring a late, undeserved winner for Watford.

The key thing was Sarmiento was very quick to stab it home with his other foot before anyone else had reacted. It had a lot of power for such an improvised toe-poke - just enough to beat the keeper. In a way it was similar to Broadhead's finish where the instant hit on the turn was just too quick for anyone to react to it.

EDIT: Just watched it again and for the first time after about 15+ views, I noticed how Sarmiento moves the ball deliberately on to his right foot before stabbing it home. I thought it had just rolled there!

Dare I say it, reminded me of Rowe's goal against us when Woolf was seemingly stuck in concrete. Not uncommon for defenders to freeze in those situations and boy did Jezza recover in a flash.

Sarmiento actually took the ball away from the defender with his left foot before prodding it home with his right foot - great bit of recovery and skill considering the compete miss hit first attempt

Agree, was a very frustrating day. George O'C was playing very well that day and never really ever got a chance to establish himself here.

That was an incredible reaction to a slip. He was just so quick that the defenders didn't have a chance to adjust. The defending wasn't that bad especially as they only had 10 men.
