As poor Hull City defender James Chester shouldered the blame for the own goal that gifted West Ham the game in a tense affair at Upton Park, few noticed the wicked right-sided spin placed on the cunningly low trajectory ‘shot’ from swashbuckling Hammers right offensive full back Guy Demel!
Video evidence remains inconclusive as to whether the intense swerve on the ball would have curved it into the Hull net, as Chester’s touch undoubtedly altered it’s trajectory, and Guy will have to await the verdict of the goal attribution panel.
The popular Hammers defender has still to score in almost three years at the club during which a variety of barriers (stubborn woodwork, fussy referees) have denied him his first strike for the Hammers but the former Ivorian international remains undimmed in his determination to one day show the Hammers fans his ‘special’ goal celebration routine.
Thankfully, here at VERYWESTHAM, we have special torpedo-trajectory technology borrowed from the Irish military that allows us to plot the movement of the ball with incredible accuracy and which clearly confirms that the shot was netbound regardless of Chester’s intervention.
Well done Guy!!!
