    I know that the A-Star one has been explained previously but I thought I would put it in anyway. Here is the reason behind Yakubu's goal celebration.

    The "A-Star"

    As performed by: James Vaughan, Marcus Bent, Cameron Jerome, Andy Johnson, Curtis Davies... hell, everyone

    The celebration of the moment is actually in support of a good cause. QPR defender "One Size" Fitz Hall has set up a charity called A-Star to provide positive role models and help provide opportunities for kids. The "A" salute is visual shorthand for the initiative's motto: "every child is a star". See? Not all footballers are tossers...



    The Butterfly

    As performed by: Nicolas Anelka and Yakubu

    Anelka says it's a personal message to friends, but it's thought it relates to a song that his former club Fenerbahçe's fans sing about rivals Galatasaray. Yakubu's seemingly identical celebration is actually completely different. He's just reminding people of his roots: Nigeria's nickname is "The Golden Eagles".

    The Phil Neville:

    Look as surprised as everyone else then run straight to the technical area to tell the boss and the press "it was mine"

    When I score I lay back, have a cigarette and feel contented.
