- Scotland football team when they were great
My 5 favourite goals
Dave Narey against Brazil
Charlie Nicholas against the Swiss
Kenny Dalglish against Belgium 82/83
Kenny Dalglish against Wales 1978 ,upset Welsh folk get over Joe Jordan
Archie Gemmill against the Dutch
Can any other home nation match any of them
Canny see us repeating them againPosted 2 months ago
David Platt against Belgium (1990)
Shearer against the Dutch (1996)
Hurst (some people are on the pitch)
Beckham against Greece (2001)
And Gazza scored a decent one in 1996 too, but that was against a second or third tier nation so not sure whether it counts 😉

Ohh yes – some memorable goals there and I can clearly remember where I was and my reaction / the reaction of those around me for four of the five games. For sheer nail-biting ‘Roy of the Rovers’ stuff I think the Beckham goal edges it for me. Funnily enough I was watching it with two friends – one another massive fan like me, the other was not in the slightest bit interested. Now he has two sons that are both massive fans and play regularly (one being a schoolboy at Coventry City) so he now spends more of his time at football and doing football-related stuff than we ever do despite not liking the game 🙂Posted 2 months ago
Stewart McKimmie winner against the world champions, Argentina, at Hampden – my first Scotland game on my own ie no parents.
Don Hutchinson winner at Wembley when we played England off the park, Keegan admitted if we’d got another (and we had plenty chances to do so) England were done for in extra time
Ally McCoist winner Norway to qualify for Italy 90, that was a phenomenal campaign.
And still the worst refereeing decision I have ever, and ever will see, in my entire life. I dare anyone to watch Alan Hutton being taken out below and tell me the mafia weren’t involved…Posted 2 months ago
Shearer against the Dutch no one near him whatsoever just bad from the Orange shirts and the worlde cup one never crossed the line so shouldn’t have counted , who beat England just after the ’66 cup I honestly can’t rememberPosted 2 months ago

Dave Nareys was just a toe poke that wound the Brazilians up. Strachan against West Germany is my first memorable Scotland goal. Leigh Griffith’s two against England, Beckham only got one against Greece. And the Scotland Ladies have scored a few good goals recently, showing the men how to really snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.Posted 2 months ago

rubbish; another driving run in the inside left channel from Gazza, leaving dutch defenders on their arses, laid it on a plate to Sheringham who dummies the shot and puts another defender on his arse before rolling it over to Shearer who nearly took the posts out at their roots, never mind net off the hooks.
and the worlde cup one never crossed the line so shouldn’t have counted
wrong goal fella. Hurst’s hat trick goal on the day we won the World Cup (still the only home nation to have come close) was nailed in from 30 yards. His 2nd goal has also been shown using modern day tech that it did cross the line too BTW.Posted 2 months ago
That Michael Owen goal helped saved my life. When in a Guatemalan jungle with a gun pointed at my head by paramilitaries wearing balaclavas I was reciting the England team to them to prove I wasn’t American. They recognised Michael Owens name and I-got to show them my passport and not be shot in the face. How we all laughed at my near death as I passed a pack of cigarettes around to cement our new friendship. My spare pants came in very handy. For that Michael Owen is one of my sporting heroes.Posted 2 months agoeasilyMember
Can any country match the Netherlands for absolutely fantastic goals?
5: Van Persie vs Spain WC 2014 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0Q1EVnVNTs
4: Van Basten vs Soviet Union EC 1988 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly3mSsHg9T0 It’s impossible to score this goal.
3: Kluivert vs Brazil WC 1998 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qBj9uO4e1uY I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better cross/header combination. I have a minor man-crush on Marc Overmars to this day.
2: Cruyff vs Brazil WC 1974 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCU1uExiplo
1: You know what it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsZkCFoqSBs The greatest World Cup goal?Posted 2 months agoMoreCashThanDashSubscriber
I was in the crowd for Beckham v Greece. And it genuinely was Beckham v Greece, he was the only one still playing with determination and passion, as I’ve since heard mentioned during the live match commentary.
Also worth mentioning he’d missed a few other free kicks in that match before the famous one that worked!
Funnily enough, I rushed back home from a ride to catch the England v Scotland when Gazza scored. Turned the telly on just as Seaman saved the penalty and then stood there transfixed in the lounge in my riding kit, with my Scott Impulse (sorry landlord) while those next few seconds unfolded. Wow.Posted 2 months agoRamsey NeilMember
