Late on in today's win over Newcastle United, Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla decided to have some fun. The score was 3-1, and Danny Welbeck drew a penalty. Cazorla stepped up to take it, with a goal already in the game, and he took it with a lot of style.

Here's a look at the goal from the stands.

Evidently it wasn't as popular outside the stadium as it was inside it. Carlo Cudicini, who used to play as a goalkeeper for Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurwasn't all that impressed.

Thanks for the input Carlo. I'm not really sure why people are so desperate to take the fun out of everything, but whatever. It was pretty awesome, it worked, and with a two goal lead and three minutes later there's no reason not to go for it. I say we need more panenkas.
