Stjarnan are back with more celebrations
And women say men don’t know the pain of child-birth…
The small Icelandic football team Stjarnan FC have gained a degree of notoriety recently with their truly epic ‘fishing’ celebration. It is above for those of you as behind on your footballing news as Marlon King.
This is quite possibly my favourite celebration ever. The originality and delivery will take some hard-thinking on how to top it. How does he flip about so fish-like?!
I’m glad I am not the only person to, somewhat embarrassingly, try and imitate this celebration. It is a lot harder than it looks – this fish looks like it’s already dead:
Anyway, Stjarnan are going to have spend about as much time at the drawing board as they do on the training pitch if they plan to keep these performances up after every goal – here are their new three, all in the same match, including giving birth to a football which, for the record ladies, does not seem to be as painful as you make out!
Now that you have witnessed the miracle of life, what are your favourite celebrations and why? Eric Cantona’s ‘chest-puffed out, collar up’ celebration? Roger Milla’s famous dance? Craig Bellamy’s infamous golf swing? Let us know.
