Gabby Agbonlahor has stolen tomorrow's sports headlines with his fantastic hattrick into todays match against Manchester City.
Despite stealing the show and many fans Man of the Match vote, the pacey, (and as a huge critic of Gabby's overall play myself, I must add) the steadily improving striker was quick to praise the service he received and his fellow teammates.
The England U21 striker in only 8 minutes has shown Fabio Capello has made an Ass of himself in selecting Emule Heskey and not him for the full squad this time round.
I don't get that, why go back to a player who couldn't hack it at International level years ago and since then succeeded in becoming the first (I think) striker to only score once in a whole season?
Anyway, I digress.
Speaking on the official site after the match, the usual bubbly Gabby said:
'To score three goals in the opening game, I couldn't have asked for a better start to the season.
'We had loads of chances to score in the first-half - Gareth had a few and others players had a few - so we knew the goals would come and they did in the second-half.
'My partnership with John Carew is a good partnership but it's thanks to the midfielders as well. If it wasn't for them today we wouldn't have scored four. So credit to them.'
