:shock: Ahem...

But the Gemmill goal was for illustrative purposes only, not an actual entry into the thread. I could have described it, but who'd have remembered it? :wink:

Strangely I don't remember John Roberston ever running the length of the pitch. Not in one go, nor in fact in a whole game put together. He got some good ambling yards in though, and still beat his man. Classic 'change of pace' trick. (Looking at clips, he is a lot more svelte than I remember)

Ah yes.

In an alternate universe somewhere, England are still playing with a forward line of Julian Joachim and Chris Kiwomya.

Going slightly off topic - while we're on the subject of the great Forest teams and Brian Clough - did you know that when he won the league title with Derby, he wasn't actually with the team. He was given the news by telephone as he was currently on holiday with his family in The Isles Of Scilly. A wise man.

Shame the picture quality isn't better, but at least the music is class.

I don't agree. Freeze the picture on 4 seconds; had Seaman been closer to his line, Nayim could have simply chipped the ball over the two defenders, the forward on the left looks onside, level with the last defender and so would have been left one on one with Seaman who, by being so deep, would be leaving the attacker with an advantage and a much better chance of scoring than Nayim has. The attacking player is in a better position than either defender. By coming off his line Seaman has given him self a chance to close the attacker in this scenario. It's good positioning and it takes an outrageous bit of skill and improvisation for Nayim to beat the Seaman. Great goal, all the more great for it winning the Cup Winners Cup in the final minute of the game and greater still for being against Arsenal.

Stan Collymore vs someone or other

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TccRjqE-20&feature=youtube_gdata_player

It really doesn't matter who. For a couple of years he seemed to do this every other week. Forest had a lot of decent forward players: Roy, Bohinen, Stone, Woan. But the main tactic for finishing 3rd in the Premiership was 'give it to Stan'.

More impressed with two footed players than those kind of daft novelties.

It's probably the Oasis fan in Horses that likes the predictable above the audacious. As for Bovine, I'm sure all those years of watching Palace has given him an appreciation of doing no more than is necessary.

Haha, this from a man who'll happily listen to the same scale played at the same rhythm accompanying lyrics about the same subject for decades on end!

The 'rabona' is the football equivalent of putting your foot on the piano while wearing a sparkly jacket and playing a tried and trusted standard riff - it's the antithesis of creativity, it's the opposite of flair.

Pochettino's original reaction to the goal says it all - https://vine.co/v/OheUbExMriv

"Git", he's thinking - as he longs to be back in his car rocking out to Definitely Maybe with his translator.
