Anyone who is interested in a thing of beauty should watch this. And I'm not even an Arsenal fan.

I don't care what sport you like or which team you support that is a spiffing goal!

yeah you won't find a better example of one touch football. 6 deft touches in about 2 seconds and a goal. Bloody Arsenal :evil:

It's a classic give-and-go through-pass, but done on an almost microscopic scale requiring perfect timing. You almost never see such a thing work so close to the goal.

That one was actually nice.
The Bundesliga had a goal to talk about this weekend, too.

Yeah, it takes an incredible amount of positional awareness as well. I thought I'd post it just in case a few of your fellow countrymen would be able to appreciate it, but alas. I knew you would though :wink:

That's awesome. Just a loose knot, apparently. Had that not been a professional match with TV cameras and instant replay, I bet it would have been tallied a goal.

Pretty awesome. Volleys are very hard to control, that's why goals like Robin van Persie's v Aston Villa are so lauded

Nice shots. The ability to shoot plunging shots like that is the bane of goalkeepers everywhere. You can't stop them unless you stay close to the line, which you just can't do.

Well old chap, you're in for a surprise then:
As you might remember the head of the FIFA is a seventy-something years-old fuck who thinks television is a keen invention.
And so instant replay, while technically available, was not available to the referee - who did in fact tally the goal. The team ended up winning 2:1.

Sucks to be on the losing end of that.

I don't understand why FIFA doesn't take a leaf out of the IRB (International Rugby Board). They have had microphones on referees and video referees for years and it has benefitted the game massively.

Well the referees have microphones already. What do they use it for? I have no idea.
Oh well, I guess we're gonna keep seeing diving players, ghost goals and wrong offside calls for a few more years. You know, because thats part of the sport.

I think they use it to communicate with their linesmen. They should broadcast what is said on the tv like rugby then you would get a clear idea what and who is being penalised

Soccer... lol

My old dog can kick a ball around. I would like to see one of those pussies hit a 95 mph fastball with late movement.

In terms of athleticism, baseball is somewhere between bowling and golf, and it's less entertaining than synchronized swimming.

anyone can kick it, that's why it's the most popular sport in the world. The problem is kicking it well. Bending it, being accurate and doing all that while you are running and so is the person you want to kick it to. You have to use far more brain power in 'soccer' than you do in US football or baseball.

It is obvious you know little about the intricacies of baseball. :wink:
