Sorry - I maybe had my tv tuned into a different channel from you?!
I was talking about his deliberate moving about on the line , shaking his legs, waving his arms about in the air like some animated monkey on drugs - in an attmept to distract the player taking the penalty!
Fair point the referee should have dome somehting - exactly the point i am making!
Oops I seem to have touched a raw nerve here?! :-)
ps - have you met him?
Tell me, was it the first penalty shoot out you've ever seen ?
As far as I remember, many goalkeepers, from all over the world did many different (usually silly) things to enchant the goal, to save the penalty. I thought you were talking about leaving the line (Pirlo's shot), but if you mean Dudek's jumping, shaking, waving hands - keeper can do whatever he wants. It was no rules breaking. Read some books. You will know more. And about his personality. I don't have to meet him personally. Listen to his comments, press conferences, look how he's behaving during a game.

if you read my original message I made one point - he was off his line for the Pirlo one ..... but only asked one question -
1) was he allowed to wave his arms around etc!
you then reponded to my question about moving his arms around so why now say you thought I was talking about something else?
If you havent met him how do you know what he is like? For £20k to £30k a week I would smile for the camera's also!!
The fact of the matter is he behaved in an unsportsmanlike manner (jumping around - handing the ball to the players with some comments etc)in an attempt to put the other players off - I didnt see the Milan goalkeeper who is of a far better quality than Dudek resort to those kind of tactics. But thats football - overpaid kids taking themsleves too seriously and sheep paying all their hard earned cash to support the football wives - sorry I am so sceptical about the whole set up!!
Take your point that maybe I should read some books on the subject......but then again i have got a social life!!
Anyway as I said in my first message congratulations to Liverpool - your guys did what they had to do - so enjoy it and stop rising to the bait!
