Obiang Heavily Criticised after Southampton Showing


A pathetic 2/10 for Pedro
He may have picked up the MOTM award for a performance of relentless domination and that included a Payet-esque assist followed by his first goal for the club, but Pedro Obiang left Hammers fans in disbelief and disappointment with his strangely limp goal celebration.

After failing to find the onion sack in his previous 54 appearances, he had taken on the Guy Demel position of mystery goal celebration man! Demel, who managed a single goal in 76 appearances turned out to have a chest thumping celebration routine that was awarded a modest 4/10 by a special football theatrics panel.


Many fans had speculated that Demel might have a Victor Obinna-style somersault routine and were disappointed by the lack of creativity displayed  by the Ivorian right back. Similarly, Obiang seemed to freeze and just wait for his teammates to bail him out by surrounding him with hugs and the like. Pedro's stoicism was all the more surprising given that the strike was from well outside the box and perfectly placed beyond Fraser Forster in the Saints goal.


Bilic and co will really have to look at the intensity of goal celebrations on the training ground next week as its clear that the Hammers are free scoring ever since the burden of always having to pass the ball to Dimitri ended.

Obiang will be pleased with his goal as it cemented a series of excellent performances over the past 6 weeks that have seen him rise from utility player to  definite first team starter.

Let's hope there are many more goals to follow and that he works on his celebration routine!

  1. There are far too many daft celebrations after a goal
    A handshake should suffice

  6. He jumped upon Reids shoulder when he scored. I swear, if he scored a hat trick, some people would still pick faults with it.

    1. Arse mate. Have you ever heard of irony? Obiang has risen from occasional bit part player to our MVP! and now he's scoring goals too! There is hope yet for Feghouli et al...
