Technically, leaving the field without permission and entering the field without permission are both caution offences. So not only a disallowed goal, but also two yellows = a red.
I have a mate who refs in the lower leagues who I’m absolutely certain would have seen it that way 😀
He does almost every single match also send someone off for punching / threatening him – I wonder why…Posted 3 years agoavdave2Member
Good on the ref for allowing play to continue
I liked the way he got right in the players faces a few times and there were some great finger in the chest moments where he was pointing out who was in charge. I’m not sure if he was all that good a ref but it was entertaining.Posted 3 years ago
Immagonna go against the grain here and say I was a little underwhelmed from the way I’d heard it described on the radio.
THIS he kicks the ball a long way runs faster than someone else and toe pokes it into the net
Not that great a goal tbh
Dont get me wrong he is a great player but not sure what is so special about thatPosted 3 years ago
I am not sure who that insult is worse on tbh Maradonna or England but it was voted the goal of the century for reasons that everyone but you can see.
“When Diego scored that second goal against us, I felt like applauding. I’d never felt like that before, but it’s true… and not just because it was such an important game. It was impossible to score such a beautiful goal. He’s the greatest player of all time, by a long way. A genuine phenomenon.”
Best player in the world in his prime dribbling on a shitty pitch against a decent team and scoring a beautiful goalPosted 3 years agodeadlydarcyMember
dribbling on a shitty pitch against a decent team
And let’s not forget – against a decent team, a few of who tried to just kick him on the way through. It was one of the greatest goals ever.
Bale’s one has to be taken in context. It’s the in the final of the Spanish equivalent of the FA Cup (I think anyway, or is it a league cup type thing?) – and it’s with five minutes to go against your biggest rivals – the team whose fans despise you more than any others. So, yeah, it’s a fantastic goal, but an equivalent comparison would be Giggs’ (great personality btw) against Arsenal – for me that was a better goal.
But up there with Maradona’s, Cruyff’s, Van Basten’s, Ronnie Whelan’s against Russia, or Ray Houghton’s against Italy, or anyone’s against France (the cheating bastards)? Nah.Posted 3 years ago
