Manchester City is destroying Hull City 4-0 at halftime. Felipe Caicedo (who?) has a brace as well as Robinho. There are two things that stick out from this match so far. The first is the video below of Robinho's goal celebration after his first goal. I don't know how to describe it, but it seems to be a mix of modern interpretive dance, break dancing, and samba with a porno video end flourish. See for yourself below.

The second is Hull City manager Phil Brown's blow dryer treatment of his team at halftime. ON THE FIELD. He sat the boys down like a bunch of teenagers and let them have it in front of all the fans. It really looked like a high school halftime where the team just went off to the side. Hopefully video coming soon.

wikipedia on caicedo:

"He is considered by many people including journalists as the second best Ecuadorian player of this generation after Wigan Athletic's winger Antonio Valencia."

yikes... what an accolade - the "2nd best Ecuadorian.."

i'm more of a christian benitez man myself, but give caicedo some christmas respect..

Clearly, Robinho was influenced by his recent choice of movies

I love Phil Brown. He'll never be able to manage a bigger club because the players wouldn't take that, but he is great for Hull. And the EPL.

u75: he's a lot like Singletary, but with more experience. Loves to switch things up and let his eccentricity shine.

Maybe Robinho's trying to get a grant from the Ministry of Silly Walks?

Was that an Ed Grimley dance?
