After Newcastle handed two late goals to Fulham on a plate, Shay Given has come out and slated the very players who made him the highly-rated goalkeeper that he is today,
“If you looked at the Sunday League football around Newcastle, you would not even see the kind of goals we gave away against Fulham. I do not want to dig things out or blame any individuals, but we have given one of the best players in the Premiership in terms of heading the ball total freedom of the six-yard box.”
Another tragic example of a footballer getting too big for his boots. If it wasn’t for those Sunday League defenders you wouldn’t have 40 opportunities a match to prove what a fantastic keeper you are.
