Not a save, but my favourite is still the 1978 World Cup when the Peruvian keeper Ramon Quiroga (nicknamed El Loco) fouled Poland's Gregor Lato about 10m inside the Polish half

It's got nothing on Andy Williams little nutmeg,turn and shot against Carlisle.


What?!?! :w00t:  Was it the one when he catches the boll on his foot and lifted it back?
If so, you think that was a more spectacular goal than a bicycle kick, with his back to the goal, from 35 meters?
Well, to each his own.

This flying side-kick volley from a direct handoff, also by Zlatan, isn't that bad either.>>

Andy Williams? He scores goals to watch girls go by.
That first one he scored against Carlisle United is immortalised in somebody's avatar at the Swindon Town forum.
He saved our blushes against Bournemouth with what I thought was a mere tap-in.
However David James was caught up in no-mans land and Williams struck with a thirty yard screamer.
Tbh I thought we could have nicked all three points if it wasn't for that pudding of a pitch.
Whatever happened it has rubber stamped our play-off position in the Nationwide first division.
An other remarkable goal was Miles Storey's cheeky back heel against Aston Villa.
Btw there's goals out there on the international circuit that Paulo would be proud off.
He would sign them all up tomorrow if just to stop this tippy-tippy football.
His words of course.

Nice goal, but what about this one? >>>>

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Unbelievable Bicycle Goal against England.
The commentary from Stan Collymore is pricless as well, He goes totally apeshit. :D



That wasn't a truly great goal.

It occurred in a meaningless friendly when Sweden already had a handsome lead and so there was not much pressure on Ibrahimovic.

I would like to have seen him do it when it was 0-0 in a World Cup Final with two minutes to go.  Only in such a situation can it be classed as a truly great goal.

I quite like this goal from Paul Gascoigne, England VS Scotland at Wembley in the Group Stage of Euro96.  England won 2-0.

After Gazza scored the spectacular volley, he took part in a "dentist's chair" goal celebration with the England players squrting water in his mouth.  That's because, just before the tournament, tabloid newspapers carried photographs from a tour of Hong Kong of players, including Gazza, reclining in a 'dentist's chair' and having various alcoholic beverages poured down their throats:

You got to be kidding. Like it would diminish the goal and the achievement, because it wasn't under terms and conditions you dictate?
Like if it would have been four minutes, and twelve seconds, to go in a Euro Cup, it would only been a so-so. :rolleyes:

Why oh why was Jack Butland picked ahead of Wes Foderingham?
Because I'm sure Butland conceded more at Cheltenham Town when he was on loan from Birmingham City than our esteemed goalie.
Who else can boast about as many clean sheets as him.
And his last gasp save from that Leyton Orient player last night is to die for.
So I'm going to gaze into my crystal ball and come up with something earth shattering...

Mr Foderingham will be playing for England in the next World Cup.
Providing they actually qualify for the blasted thing in the first place.
The England team needs a major re- shuffle and what better place to start off than the guy with the number one jersey.
Let's hope he dosn't throw the ball to that philandering donkey of a full back Ashley Cole.

Gazza's really fallen off the wagon now. He might have been stone cold sober then but he's far from it now.
Here's a few paragraphs from the Star to demonstrate what I mean....

An international rescue mission was last night underway to save Paul Gascoigne's life after a booze meltdown.The England and Tottenham legend's agent said he fears Gazza is right on the edge after he spectacularly fell off the wagon in a four day gin and lager binge.Fans were left horrified after the football idol lurched on stage drunk at a charity bash,slurred his words,fluffed his lines and shook uncontrollably before breaking down in tears.

And he was still at it again yesterday,being turned away from an off- license during a shopping trip to get three bottles of gin and a six pack of extra strong Stella Artois.His distraught agent Terry Baker went on radio to make a dramatic personal plea to the star to get help,but warned "Maybe no-one can save him."He fears the legend may even need to be sectioned for his own safety.Yesterday alcohol counsellors were trying to get him an emergency passport so they can jet him to a specialist in Marbella,Spain.Gazza,45 has lost his travel documents.

In the meantime,the former footballer continued to hit the bottle as his bender lurched into a fourth day and he was spotted urinating from his balcony in Boscombe,Dorset.Yesterday he drank an off- license out of it's gin stock after making two booze runs in 20 minutes.Staff refused to serve him a second time but the footballer went to an other shop and emerged with six cans of Stella Artois.Passer- by John Pearce,who spotted him smoking on his balcony,said: "It was terrible to see him like that. He was stumbling about while he was on the balcony having a cigarette.It's such a shame."

Mr Baker picked up Gazza at 1 pm on Thursday to drive him to the charity apparence in Northampton but he was slurring his words and "not very well".The agent said he wanted to cancel their 35 minute question and answer session but Gazza insisted on going through with it.But he pulled the plug on the show after he forgot his lines,mumbled his words,wept and started " shaking uncontrollably".Mr Baker said: " He won't thank me for saying it but he does need to get some help".

There's shades of George Best here.It's not a question of how he dies but when.I just hope it's not down to me to write his epitaph here.

I don't want to rain on Elljay's parade but I've gotta..

Did you anybody see Gary Roberts second goal against Tranmere?

I'm sorry mate but a 60 goal lob beats your little video hands down.

Very Beckhamesque!

Ahaha, dont worry mate. :)
Was it this goal??>>>



If so -it was nice- but it didn't really have any punch to it.It was more of a soft lob.

Well anyway, going back to `great saves´, Swedish goalie against Argentina. It's not a spectacular save but more along the lines of ´never lose hope, never give up`.



And yes BTW, the ball was IN, just that the ref didn't see it

That's the feller!
Though I have to say he didn't have his eyes on the goal when he scored with this hit and hope.
It had a touch of hoofball about it.
Tbh Roberts is now playing the kind of game we need from him now that Di Canio's off his back.
I can't believe his Italian brethren followed him out the door after getting to the top of the first division.
I bet he's reading today's papers and putting his head in his hands.
If he does go to an other team apart from West Ham he'll have to grow an extra arm to accommodate his tattoo.
Tbh Swindon Town is an unexplained mystery in itself because how can you win an other championship without an owner,background staff and a manager.
However things could be falling into place today hopefully with the takeover.
We might have Newell or Buckle as our manager.
Thanks for showing the video,mate.
