Rosicky Defends Freekick Actions

Rosicky Defends Freekick Actions

Thomas Rosicky has defended his 'laugh' and walk back to the halfway line as the freekick was taken, as he says he 'knew it was in'.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Rosicky defended his actions by saying.

'That wasn't a laugh, it was a desperate laugh that such a screamer would be scored again. I don't have to turn around. I see his face and he is celebrating, why should I turn around?'

Rosicky adds that he finds it 'frankly unbelievable' that anybody would think he would genuinely laugh in that situation given he has been at the club for six years.

I don't see any problem, I did EXACTLY the same thing (The laugh not not turning around ...... actually, I didn't turn around either, otherwise I'd be looking at the wall). How many times have people hit absolute screamers against us? Friggin loads, that's how many. Tommy was one of our best players on the day, I'm not bothered by this in the slightest.

Because a few thin skinned, disgruntled gooners online have managed to clench their fists long enough to bash out a few words in an article a player actually has to explain the most obvious of actions. FFS grow a set and grow up.

The Fear - I was one of those resigned, "why us?" laughs, when yet another player scores a 30 yard screamer against us for the 5/6th time this season. We already have a collection of candidates for goal of the season built up in the 2011/12 against Arsenal portfolio!! lol

I wanted an explanation because, as typical as it is for us to concede a screamer, I want any player to be alive to the outcome of a free-kick. You would expect it from a Sunday morning team down the park and you would certainly expect it from a seasoned professional. If the free-kick fails he’s not much use if he looking the other way is he. I empathise with Rosicky and his ironic smile but see that the ball is dead first.

As unimportant and inconsequential as this whole incident may very well be,I feel that it highlights one thing vividly-that gooners these days expect total committment to the cause from their players.It's an absolutely vital necessity to drag us out of this mire that we are in.Up the Arse!!!!!

Grow a set? It gave me the hump at OT and it gave me the hump when he done it the other day, when he does it when it hits the post and they turn in the rebound is when it'll get me really fked off
