Thumb Great football goal! Brilliant!

You know, if there were more of these plays, I might actually enjoy watching this sport.

Wayne Rooney calls it his greatest goal ever. Watch and you will agree!

Looks spectacular, but more a sloppy defense than brilliant play.

More that the marking centre back lost his footing - if he'd stayed upright, there's a good chance he would've headed it clear.

Well-controlled shot though, not many could do it as accurately as Shrek did there

It's good but a little overrated (it bangs off his shin and he gets lucky). I think he actually scored a better goal a few years ago



This is real genius

^ Fantastic shots above.

But the game has so much finesse and ground to cover that scoring is almost incidental.

And the offsides rule is fairly absurd. I mean if one team is fast and accurate enough to get the ball downfield why a penalty?

"Offside is a law in football which law states that if a player is in an offside position when the ball is touched or played by a team mate, he may not become actively involved in the play. A player is in an offside position if he is closer to the opponent's goal line than both the ball and the second-to-last defender (i.e. last outfield player), but only if the player is on his opponent's half of the pitch."

^Must have been written by a lawyer.

I wish I could appreciate these techniques enough to watch 90 minutes of back and forth.

Written down the off-side rule is confusing (and sometimes in practice ) but it is the heart of soccer. It's what makes the game work and is a rule of genius.

If you want to watch an example of football played as God intended, try and find the full 90 minutes of Barcelona Vs. Real Madrid earlier this year. With no exageration, it will probably be used as a coaching tool for years to come. Rooney was quoted as saying he stood up and applauded after watching it on T.V. It's an extraordinary match.

p.s. Those goals by Zidane are with his left and he's naturally right footed

I guess it is much harder to watch and enjoy soccer, if there are no emotions for one or the other team involved.

Even if it is only a Bundesliga betting game.

Those goddamned Nürnberg fuckers better use the 30 minutes they have left to shoot a goal.
I am not sure one point is enough to keep 4th place.
