Jobi - Greatest goal never scored?

Nice little piece on Planet Football about THAT run from Jobi McAnuff vs Liverpool in 2010. Still expecting to see the ball to go in off the post.

Re: One for HNA? refs - offside or not?

Had a bit of an argument with a lino during my U15 boys' last league game at the weekend over the interpretation of 'being active' in an offside decision (or non-decision). Perhaps collective body of HNA? refs out there can answer this: A ball was played through the middle in our half to an opposin...

Yet another Bielsa team runs out of steam. Quelle surprise.

Has there ever been a 5th vs 6th PO final before at this level?

An incredible 1267 crowd at the Stray Dog in Walthamstow watch Clapton CFC clinch the Middlesex County League Div 1 C&E title with a 3-0 win. Been an incredible inaugural season and will be interesting to see how they follow that next season.

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Watching United last night and my overwhelming thought was that they are really, really fu cked for the foreseeable future. Not one of their players would adequately replace any in the City, Liverpool or Spurs line ups. Still, they will always have the Class of '92 and 1999, which were so last centu...

Re: That Robin Friday goal, now visible on video (sort of)

Close, but not close enough for the Fuhrer. Ball came in to Friday just outside the 'D' (23-25 yds) on the right and he had his back to goal. Still think that the closest I have seen is Thierry Henry's goal v Man Utd in 2000 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ksz6K-tJ6Nc although Friday's goal was hit...
