Fantasy now a reality for the Horse
When Geoff Horsfield saw his name above Thierry Henry’s in the leading scorers’ chart he was so thrilled that he decided to capture the moment on camera. And even though normal order was restored in midweek when the Frenchman added two more to his tally, Horsfield still $2k celine spring found reason to be happy.
“I know he’s nipped in front of me but I’ve got him in my Fantasy Football team,” said the West Bromwich Albion striker. “I took a picture on my phone of the leading scorers and I’m keeping that as my screen-saver.”
Horsfield, though, unlike Henry, has spent little time on the $472 miguelina celine crocheted cotton maxi white skirt xs pitch this season. He failed to make the substitutes’ bench on the 0 celine bag 30 cm equals how many inches opening day and, despite scoring twice against Portsmouth last Saturday, was left out at Chelsea on Wednesday. Asked whether he had ever been dropped after scoring two before, Horsfield replied: “I can’t remember the last time I scored two.”
Today, though, he is expected to be restored to West Bromwich’s starting line-up for the visit of one of his $1490 celine classic riding boot tall flat equestrian bootie 38 black shoes 8 former clubs, Birmingham City celine replica dion handbags, where he enjoyed three years and whom he helped win promotion to the Premiership before he was sold to Wigan.
“I always seem to get clubs promoted or save them from relegation and then get shipped out or booted out,” Horsfield said. “But I don’t hold any grudges against anybody. If they don’t fancy me I’ll go and do it at another club, but the gaffer here has showed faith in me by giving me a two-year deal.”
That new contract, signed this week, was reward for the part he played in securing Albion’s Premiership status. His $2250 new authentic celine cabas phantom black croc crucial goal against Portsmouth on the final day of last season has already made him a cult figure at The Hawthorns and $950 new celine us 10 eu $950 new celine us 10 eu 40 pony hair 2 40 dress black satin high heels classic pumps shoes box beyond.
“Everywhere you went [in the summer] people knew what we’d done,” said Horsfield. “I went to Canada on holiday and everyone was coming up to me in a pub I was in, and that’s a thousand miles away.”
Horsfield’s passion for the game has always endeared him to supporters. Indeed at St Andrews last week the announcement that he had scored both of Albion’s goals was greeted with warm applause. His former team-mates were equally generous.
“Nico [Vaesen, the reserve goalkeeper] texted me to congratulate me,” said Horsfield. “I just sent one back to him saying, ‘You’d better get ready for next Saturday.'”
Birmingham, though, will know exactly what to expect. The 31-year-old striker is more likely to unsettle defenders with a robust challenge than nimble footwork, yet Robson recognises other qualities. “His link-up play is very good and he’s got a nice touch,” said the West Bromwich manager. “Geoff $950 new celine us 10 eu 40 turquoise pony hair espadrille loafer slip is a better footballer than I gave him credit for, and maybe some of the managers who’ve sold him before.”
The latter group includes Steve Bruce, who sanctioned Horsfield’s departure to Wigan. Horsfield, though, speaks warmly of the Birmingham manager, who is under pressure after successive home defeats. “Brucey will have them fired up,” he said, “and from their point of view there’s no better way of getting it $550 celine purple satin pumps shoes size 10 out their system than a derby.”
Horsfield has plenty of ways to release his own frustration, particularly outside of football where he maintains an interest in $2700 authentic celine trapeze tricolor small black green cream luggage tote bag the building industry that was once his career.
“It’s a relaxation,” he said, referring to the houses he is renovating. “I can’t go and sit on the settee and keep pressing the remote control.” Though he might have if Henry were still looking up at “the Horse”.
