At the end of each Premier League season, the Football Transfer Tavern releases a DVD of the campaign’s best gaffes and bloopers.
On Saturday, Southampton goalkeeper Artur Boruc sealed his place on the DVD and, according to my landlord, it will take something totally ridiculous for Boruc’s mishap to not get the number one spot.
I didn’t actually see the Polish international’s error as I wasn’t working at the tavern until the evening but I overheard a few comments and I could begin to work out exactly how bad Boruc’s mistake was.
“He made Wojciech Szczesny look calm and composed”.
“Most ridiculous and baffling moment of madness I’ve ever seen”
“Was he mentored by Fabien Barthez?”
Eventually, I got one of the punter’s to talk me through it.
He summed it up by saying, “Johan Cruyff wouldn’t be happy with the execution of his iconic skill.”
Oh dear, Artur…
