Things You Would Never See Alan Shearer Do, No.1,068: The Zidane Roulette
I laughed out loud with simple delight at the sight of Angry Craig Bellamy – ah, what better victim!? – chasing thin air.
Thing is, this particular trick, as perfected by Zinedine Zidane, is not so difficult to perform (I’m sure many of you have tried it and got it right), but whereas most examples look laboured, this happened in a joyous instant, as quickly as the great Zizou even, eliciting the inevitable “Quick feet for a big man” praise. And in the context of the match, with Everton dicking all over Man City to the point of “Olés” from the Goodison faithful, it was absolutely perfect, a delicious cherry on top of a much-deserved win for David Moyes and his walking wounded.
So that’s our Play of the Week. What’s yours?
