AthleticoSpizza poor ball in a dangerous position to have to recieve and at 0-3 down counted for sh1t.CountryRoyal Just seen Al-Habsi's howler.
Regardless of the circumstances (and I'm not sure it was a poor ball in a dangerous position until AAH turned it into one), it was a big and worrying mistake, particularly as his 'kicking' has now cost us a goal in each of the last two games.
Earlier in the season it looked as though AAH had finally overcome his demons when it comes to the ball at his feet but the last four or five games would suggest his new found confidence on the ball has largely disappeared. If his confidence is now shot that is worrying for our promotion push. With our preferred style of play we need him to be a good shot stopper and ball player.

but did you also see all the fantastic saves he made??? Just wow weren't they??!!!
Fantastic saves undermined by goals gifted by mistakes might not be good enough for a team hunting promotion. He is a great shot stopper but, if we are brutally honest, a few of his fantastic saves have been when he has responded brilliantly to recover from a situation where he might have done better with the initial save.
