I think you're being a bit harsh on Pericard .. he was one of our stars in the Primavera team and actually played well against Arsenal and I can't remember whether he scored in that win in the Champions League or not .. but I'm sure he impressed at Portsmouth and helped them gain promotion to the Premiership ..
Pericard? I think he didnt play Against arsenal in the CL? Are you talknig about when we beat Arsenal a year or two ago, when Carini was in goal? If you are, Pericard didnt play as far as I remember, and he certanly didnt score. Zala scored, that great header.
Wait... he did play, but didnt score. He came in as as sub I think.
