Having spent last season on the books at Burnley, Robinson has decided to pack it in after once again succumbing to chronic back pain.

Unfortunately, my back problem returned towards the end of last season and has prevented me being ready for the start of the new season.

Scoring an own goal is soul-destroying, confidence-shattering and altogether demoralising. If you deflect a shot into your own net, convert a cross past your own goalkeeper or get the last touch before your team concedes it is frustrating and annoying, but these ten are just down right embarrassing.

Bolton's Bogdan could do little but look stunned after Tim Howard booted the ball upfield and it took a bounce that evaded him altogether. The wind carried it a good 20 yards further. Howard refused to celebrate mindful of goalkeeper union rules. The stunning goal hogged the headlines obscuring the equally stunning comeback by Bolton for an exceedingly rare win.

Two Late Headed Winners Should Give Andy Carroll Confidence Boost

The Flat Back Four at related • 0 views


Andy Carroll started the last two Liverpool games, and they were important games in some respect. Liverpool ended a four game win-less streak with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Blackburn Rovers. The Reds followed that up with a come-from-behind FA Cup victory over Everton, thus maintaining their hoodoo spell over the blue of Merseyside.

With five games to go, 3rd place was in Arsenal's hands. It wasn't the season we'd hoped for, but considering how badly we started, we looked like saving some dignity. Four games later, we are looking at another typical end-of-season collapse.

Of course, it's nothing like last season, where the prize we'd lost was far greater.

I have been banging on about Paul Robinson not being a good goalkeeper for years now. He is very good at the reflex stuff that look good on TV, but consistently posts saves/shots ratios that are worse than most other goalkeepers, mainly because he seems hugely vulnerable to shots from a bit further out.
