The net might have just about stopped this, but there are some particles of the ball still following the shot's arrow straight trajectory somewhere on the outer edges of the solar system.

Bending the ball is for tossers.

Just one of the most wonderful things I've ever seen. First day of the season. 15 years on and I still don't know what's better - the assist or the finish...

Has to be the assist (not to take anything away from the finish), that was genius.

Absolute BEAUTY. The timing of the finish is incredible.

Fab though that second goal is, what it lacks is that half-beat where Fashanu thinks about what he's going to do and then does it totally on purpose, rather than just hitting it on spec.

It's bit like Ibra against England (which ought to crop up at some point), when he was so clearly lining it up you actually had time to think, "He can't be going to try that...He has tried that...Bloody hell!"

^^^ Yep, all this ^^^

And I see Toure has now admitted he wasn't actually going for goal with that LC Final effort, which is a shame.

Well yes, that was meant in jest.

Incidentally - that goal was voted second best of the first PL season behind Dalian Atkinson's aforementioned solo effort.

I knew someone who only went to one football match ever, while she was on holiday in Italy. It was this game. It was 'OK' apparently.

An interesting one that George Weah one. There's no tricks or sublime close control, it's a mish mash of poor defending, ricochets but fair bit of pace and then, bearing in mind he's run the length of a pitch, a more than decently struck finish. Needless to say we never saw that sort of form when the former World Player of the Year turned up in Moss Side in 2000...

Fashions and capabilities change. That Weah goal was astounding for the time. Going further back this was goal of the season when Forest won the championship. I remember the genuine astonishment at Gemmill's running. These days there'd be 30 secs grumbling that he wasn't picked up and move on.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BEDNKJtklU&feature=youtube_gdata_player

I still love it, mind

RE: That Weah goal, still remember Peter Brackley's commentary when he poked it in the onion: "David Beckham eat your heart out!" A reference to his half way line lob which was scored just weeks previous. Not sure there's much comparison between running the entire length of the pitch and smashing one over an ill-positioned Neil Sullivan from 50 yards but, still.

Defending has changed a lot, no doubt.

Make sure to keep em one a day, folks, and state what day it is your posting on!

I think a lot of the stuff with pace and running the length of the pitch or whatever, has a fair bit to do with the state of the pitches. With some of the semi-artificial pitches we have at top grounds now, plus pre-watering them to make them more zippy, plus a lighter ball, then speed and so on will naturally increase compared to dragging a couple of kilos of saturated leather through some mud. Plus player fitness will have improved I'm sure. Its well known that Cryuff was a heavy smoker - imagine if he'd had the fitness of some of today's players!

It's like that Giggs goal - it was the pace as much as the nutmeg that made it so good. His goal against Arsenal was probably the best he scored but I thought that would be too obvious.

As for Collymore - I can still remember where I was watching those Liverpool-Newcastle games. And that's rare for me unless it's England or United playing! Proper entertaining footy.
