Bird Spotting – The Final!
And what a Final!
The Carling Cup between the Bluebirds and the Liver Birds was intense and showed just why I was singing the praises of Cardiff City goalkeeper, Tom Heaton. Drawing the plaudits for his goalkeeping during the match and for a tremendous penalty save. Showing just why as a Goalkeeper you use every part of your body in a penalty save. Throwing out an arm to save not only a penalty, but that from a Steven Gerrard spot kick!
Let’s not overshadow Pepe Reina’s performance in the penalty shoot out. Equally as impressive. Alas though… only one of them could get the winners medal, but I think that Cardiff’s Goalkeeper was not necessarily a ‘loser’ here… As now others have seen him on one of the biggest stages. What do you reckon: International or Premiership call???
