Yeah I know, but it's a quiet weekend,

So I'm gonna watch this, and invite you to do likewise and y'know just talk about great goals. Positivity and all that.

Favourite so far is the one I've just seen from Belhanda (no. 56)

henry scored a few in north london derbies similar, people raving about them, he's just run to the goal and scored, smh defenders

tell you what tho, how the fuck does neymar keep his legs on

mister borges (darraghmac), Saturday, 23 March 2013 14:47 (five years ago) Permalink

the backheel turn, dude, then the fact he makes a straight line out of it with a perfectly-weighted through-ball to himself, absolute brilliance

best goal? probably one of the neymars yeah, though that goal at number 2 was flat-out ridiculous

ibra overrated

no bicycle kicks from inside the box without amazing build-up, no long-shots without a bit of skill beforehand unless they're still rising when they hit the net, no goals where there's demonstrably shoddy defending, no halfwayline punts, no irish

jus watching a ball drop over your shoulder with that perfect clarity of vision and purpose "pick this one out then you c*nt"

The volleyed cunts a la that benzema can be stricken imo, and really that messi goal is ordinary for messi

I SCORED A GOAL FFS

turns out i dont really have a lot to say about these

my personal fave is alessandrini at 58 jumping out of nowhere like YEAH BITCH

di maria 55 reminiscent of jon harley all time golazo only without the crucial satisfaction of the pre-cunt run up

wtf was that some other tal ben haim btw

Yeah the Alessandrini one is a dilly

It's the Talk Ben Haim who plays for Hapoel.

Tal is referred to in UEFA reports as Tal Ben-Haim II

Veselenovic #86, Agyemang-Badu #70 or so both worthy of second looks I think.

disappointing the new pope went for Francis I

Ismael Klata, Saturday, 23 March 2013 20:27 (five years ago) Permalink

as great as it is a lot of the alessandrini's appeal is probably down to the camera angle tbh, see that high up at the nou camp or whl or wherever as part of a bigger picture and ur likely somewhat robbed of its essential jack-in-the-box glee

Veselenovic #86

oh yeah this one wtf did he do there exactly

The break just after in Bakambu 83 is perfect

Ismael Klata, Saturday, 23 March 2013 20:33 (five years ago) Permalink

You don't want perfection though imo, you want a goal you can't see coming. Zlatan is king of these.

veselinovic is the one i came here to post. very smoothly done by veselinovic. has no right to stick that in.

Oscar goal was CL, you wouldn't get anything that sublime in the epl. Maybe from Suarez.

no 56, i had it down when i started thread above but i've changed my mind

mister borges (darraghmac), Saturday, 23 March 2013 21:07 (five years ago) Permalink

concur that trying to plough through this whole thing and then pick a fav is completely numbing. On a third viewing, and my #1 is changing every 3 or 4 goals right now. Jozy Altidore at 70 is a fucking doozy, he really makes a mug of that second defender

Windsor Davies, Saturday, 23 March 2013 21:37 (five years ago) Permalink

actually that's 71, soz

Windsor Davies, Saturday, 23 March 2013 21:37 (five years ago) Permalink

I know what you mean WD, I'm watching that YouTube while trying to compile a Miles Davis ballot by skipping through spotify, and it's basically the same thing. I feel like I'm single-handedly proving that modern life = no room for contemplation.

Ismael Klata, Saturday, 23 March 2013 21:42 (five years ago) Permalink

There was none of this at the White Horse Final, they had two goals and only Abide With Me to sing, and they were happy.

Ismael Klata, Saturday, 23 March 2013 21:44 (five years ago) Permalink

Gotta try not to gripe though, most def. would not trade these enlightened times w/ youtube, spotify and the like for the days when I only owned Up The Bracket, Enema of the State and the 8 Mile OST on CD and my footy highlights came from my VHS copies of Gary Lineker World Cup 11 and Aston Villa - '97-'98 in review. These are the days of miracle and wonder, my friend.

It's a fair cop; that's up there behind Ibby's imo

Ismael Klata, Sunday, 24 March 2013 23:18 (five years ago) Permalink

Yeah, definitely a stunner. Like Ibra's bicycle kick, it has that element of joyful spontaneity about it. Dunno how I feel about it as goal of the season tho. Rare as a hen's tooth and clearly a wonderful physical feat, but perhaps lacking a little of the wtf magic of some of those others? idk. not so open to that criticism as ur average bifter from the halfway line, which just happens too often to be worth anything more than a shrug these days, but i don't think it beats some of the higher-ups on that other vid

Windsor Davies, Monday, 25 March 2013 00:24 (five years ago) Permalink

would it effortlessly sum up the spirit of ILF if I said my prevailing thought (esp in the first half of the vid) was that there are a lot of crappy keepers out there

congratulations on yet another award and i loved your baseball cap (DJ Mencap), Tuesday, 26 March 2013 10:37 (five years ago) Permalink

WD otm tho, this is still a numbing watch... starts feeling a bit trippy after a while. when you see this many at this rate you (or I) start to break them down into genres (long range cuntings/ridic pinpoint multiple passing moves/unrepeatable circus tricks) and it seems kinda off to try and compare one type to another. this prolly says more about me tho

congratulations on yet another award and i loved your baseball cap (DJ Mencap), Tuesday, 26 March 2013 10:41 (five years ago) Permalink

Feeling that. Also, you look for ever-flimsier excuses to discount them:

  • keeper off line →easy
  • went in middle of goal →shank
  • hit with leading foot →aesthetically displeasing
  • scored in friendly →actually shite

Ismael Klata, Tuesday, 26 March 2013 10:51 (five years ago) Permalink

yeah it's like what I imagine handling hopelessly oversubscribed job applications to be like, where you end up shitcanning candidates on the basis of a displeasing signature
