Straight from the kick-off. Really.

It’s a cliche in football that a team is most vulnerable when they have just scored. It’s doubtful that the clichemongers had this in mind when thinking about just how vulnerable you can be.

It’s bound now to be described as like Beckham’s, but really, this sort of thing went on all the time back in the day. Before wall-to-wall saturation coverage, the number of goals captured on film was much less, so it really was a case of the best goal we got on tape, not best goal scored. As the number of top flight and non top flight matches was much lower, goal of the season could be won by non-top flight players.

One good thing from saturation coverage has been to be able to have these gems saved by those there, those not there, and no doubt the players themselves; Kids in the future will be able to see that their old dad could actually play a bit after all. And thanks to the interweb, the level at which the cameras are present is much much lower than it once was, meaning that this FC United goal from Rory Patterson was captured this weekend, like many of their others.
