..how Andy Carroll's bicycle kick goal beat Giroud's scorpion kick to GOTM for Jan? Don't get me wrong, Carroll's goal was a good 'un, but you see those goals scored all over the world regularly. Giroud's was remarkable, far, far harder to pull off Not only that but the whole Arsenal move was a thing of beauty, a perfect example of catching your opposition on the break with electric pace, starting on the edge of their own box then one- and two-touch passing (including a sublime flick by goal-scorer Giroud inside his own half) all the way until the goal. The fact that it goes in off the underside of the bar is the icing on the cake. The only reason I can think of for it not getting Jan's GOTM is that December's GOTM was also a scorpion kick (Mkhitaryan's - which was a farce to be given the award as it was clearly offside, as good as it was).
