Show A Bit Of Bloody Respect
I think it's fair to say that Andriy Shevchenko hasn't exactly had the best first season in English football. But when - as one of the SkySports pundits did today - someone says that Shevchenko could take a tip or two from Birmingham City's Gary McSheffrey in the goalscoring stakes, it's time to take a step back and just remember who the hell we're talking about here.
This isn't a Diego Forlan or Mateja Kezman situation...this is a guy that is proven at the highest level for a decade. Show the guy some bloody respect because as sure as eggs is eggs, Shevchenko will come good.
Just as a reminder, Shevchenko scored 173 in 296 for AC Milan; 99 in 164 for Dynamo Kiev; is the second top goalscorer ever in The Champions League, won the golden boot; is AC Milan's second top scorer of all time, won The Champions League, won Serie A.
Gary McSheffrey, by contrast, won a deal with Birmingham City by playing quite well for Coventry.
Shevchenko deserves some respect.
