Silverware for HBA's sublime goal?

Something to offset HBA's disappointment at our worrying recent slump in form: his phenomenal FA Cup goal against Blackburn in January has been shortlisted for FIFA's Puskas Award for the best goal of 2012. The Frenchman is the only English-based player to receive a nomination, and in truth he could have featured in the shortlist twice, his strike at home to Bolton in the spring equally superb. Meanwhile, poor old Papiss Cisse - struggling in front of goal and barred from playing against Swansea by the spiteful Senegalese FA - receives no international recognition for THAT goal against Chelsea...

So, what are HBA's chances of winning? Well, there are some fabulous goals in there, and he's up against the likes of Lionel Messi and Radamel Falcao, but I'd say he's certainly in with a good shout - plus Neymar's effort should be automatically disallowed on the grounds that he models his haircut on Limahl of Kajagoogoo. Head here before 29th November if you want to show our boy some love.
