Nicole Carroll: A one woman mission to make a name in football

Footballers displaying REAL passion

leave a comment »

Lots has been said on the Blues loss yesterday, and I’m naturally disappointed. However, this picture to me, shows that some of our overpaid footballers in the Premier League do possess a bit of passion for the clubs paying their wages.

Is what Stephen Carr did particularly clever? No not really, but just summed up his feelings after a passionate game of football. Fans are forever giving players stick, and some of the songs that are sung on the terraces do make me cringe (The Tracie Andrews song comes to mind in terms of bad taste songs, and songs about foreign players are usually bad). If you give out abuse on the terraces, then you have no right to complain when the player gives a bit back on the pitch. Will Stephen Carr be fined? Yeah, and most likely pretty heavily. That gesture has just cemented him into derby folklore though, and shows that we have someone in the team who truely gives a damn.
