A Moment Please…

For Samuel Eto’o’s sneaky crabwalk…

Schalke’s Timo Hildebrand has already felt the full force of it this season and West Ham’s Adrian was almost caught out during the Hammer’s midweek draw at Stamford Bridge. I’m talking, of course, about Samuel Eto’o’s crabwalk come full-on sprint.

The striker may have blown warm to cold in terms of form this season but his nose for goalkeeping mistakes remains red hot. The audacity, the cheek, the sheer impudence of the man as he horizontally canters towards goal before launching into an all-or-nothing death sprint in the final furlong. It’s so incredibly obvious what he’s doing to everyone apart from the opposing goalkeeper. What a scamp. We salute you Samuel. Keep crabwalking to victory.
