Speaking about Shola Ameobi`s quite dismal performance against the Rams last week, Big Sam has come out on the defensive, backing the gangling goal getter to prove his doubters wrong. Expect him turning out against the Gunners then:
“I don’t know why it was Shola who was singled out for criticism because he was no worse than a lot of the others on Monday night. It’s a shame because he could have turned into the hero if he had put in the chance he had. To be fair, David Rozehnal’s earlier chance was much easier than Shola’s. Like everybody else, it is down to the service sometimes and your other team-mates clicking all together and, unfortunately, too many of us did not click. It’s a little unfair to point all the criticism at him when there was a lot of players below their best.’
