Zheng Zhi is one of the greatest football players in China. He recently signed a two year contract with Celtic FC after spending the last two seasons with Charlton Athletic. After his arrival in Glasgow, Zheng Zhi will be participating in a press conference and then practice for the rest of the Celtic Football Season
In the beginning, I would have written an article suggesting that Celtic FC drop Artur Boruc from their team. I was about to criticize Artur Boruc for the mistakes made during the game between Celtic FC and Dundee. After reading about the positive and negative aspects of Artur Boruc, I have decided that Celtic FC should not drop Artur Boruc.
Artue Boruc is one of the best goalies that has appeared in the Celtic FC roster. He should not be paying for mistakes that while avoidable are not the cause for dropping a person. It should be understood that the goalie is the most difficult job in football [soccer]. The job of the goalie is to make sure that the opposing team does not kick the ball past him or her in order to score a goal.
The job of a goalie requires action as well as quick thinking in order to block an attempted goal. The result can be a fifty percent success or a fifty percent failure. The job of the goalie is further complicated by the pressures placed on him or her by the team and the public that supports the team. If the goalie succeeds in blocking the ball, he or she is praised. If not, they are criticized and converted into non entities with the media suggesting a replacement.
The Left Back for Celtic FC whose name is Lee Naylor once said that Artur Boruc is the “best keeper for Britain and would have been the best keeper for England if he had been born South of the Border [between England and Scotland". Strachan [who is one of the heads of the Celtic FC by going one step further and declaring that "Goalies have their bad days and good days".
Why should Boruc shoulder the blame for allowing a goal by Colin Mc Menamin of Dundee? It may have produced a temporary setback for Celtic FC but they eventually won the game. If Boruc were to be removed by Celtic FC secondary to a minor setback, it would be the equivalent of how Thaksin Shinawatra [as owner of Manchester City] treated Sven Goren Ericksson when he served as Coach of Manchester City. The result was since there “was no perfection, the person who is imperfect has to be removed”.
Nothing in the world of sports especially football [soccer] is perfect and to remove Boruc would be an error. It would allow coaches and owners to put a perfection that does not exist above the player and that is not good for the team or its members.
