Lamela scores the goal of the millennium during a classic European night at the Lane.
Harry Kane undoes all his hard work and hat trick with this goalkeeping blooper
Celtic and Everton played as well i think
see ya later
I still reckon Brentford drawing 2-2 with John "who needs Mourinho when we've got" Mousinho in goal for like 80 minutes is one of my favourite matches ever.
Hat-trick and then going in goal and shipping one straight away. Brilliant stuff.
Question for Spurs fans. Do you actually have a starting 11? Everytime I see them the teams seems entirely different.
Asked about his lack of celebration, the Spurs manager said: "I only show emotion at home, and in my bed."
and meths said it was the best goal he'd ever seen.
And then by Monday's thread he said he couldn't remember it :(
that was a "trap-ball-with-one-foot-then-kick-ball-from-under-foot-with-other-foot".
I think the names is Welsh or Indian, can't quite remember.
The Guardian did a top 6 list the other week
and you can't even tell it was a "Rabona" (and why have I never heard it called that before?) unless you look closely.
I was more entertained with that time someone tried to cross the ball using this method and fell over their own legs.
It's *almost* as entertaining as David Dunn.
against a team of uncertain origin BUT it definitely wasn't that good. If he'd done it to wrong foot the keeper or a defender then it would have been #skill, as it was it was #showboating and EXACTLY the kind of thing players should be punished for doing at schoolboy level.

at the new bloke at 5-a-side last night who was the quintessential will-not-pass-until-I've-beaten-at-least-two-men twat
who do this at fives, just pass the ball and move into space you useless cunts!
but we could have scored about 8 more goals than we did
when they do it and it comes off, as it's justifying them ignoring the basic premise of five a side, same with folk who lump the ball out from the keeper to the other end of the park
and not Riquelme's.
bet you're a walloper at fives too
Pretty legendary at fives actually.
Often screaming "track a man"
Jack once caught me out screaming, "track back fuck off" at DiS football.
Sadly, I've got very little fancy dan skills.
is probably feeling pretty "FIRST!" about his article from last week now:
Hazard (faking one)
running off to celebrate in the other direction while the rest of the team run to Maradona
which is sort of fair enough.
Definitely one of the most lovable fascists of all time.
It's just a fancy dan way of shooting really, unlike a bicycle kick or something which is the most effective way of scoring from that position but really hard to pull off. Guess it makes a slightly more interesting headline than 30 squillion pound flop scores good goal against team no-one's ever heard of.
But... they never really *look* that nice in my opinion. I mean obviously Lamela's curved in nicely but the initial technique always looks a bit clunky.
Nothing beats a good clean strike for me. Nothing.
Sure it takes a lot of skill but it's not particularly functional and I'm probably going to think you're kind of a dick for having practiced doing it. Give me a thunderbastard volley or a mazy run that someone just did because they're naturally awesome any day.
It's the whole process of it that thrills:
*ball spills out*
`He's gonna hit that`
`He HAS hit it`
`FUCK ME WHAT A GOAL`
Better Than Sex™. Last experienced when Hamas Rodriguez belted that volley in in the WC when I was 8 pints worse off. Euphoria.
Where the ball just sat up at the right height and he thought "fuck it, why not," *whoooomph*. That's a goal I can get behind.
See Coutinho's against City as evidence:
`How the fuck did I end up over the other side of this pub?`
You see it all the time on the Football League show and even in DiS matches(!).
A rabona is dead fucking hard. You ever tried one? Getting anything resembling power behind it is pretty hard, let alone while you're actually moving.
Hence it being a fancy dan thing to do when just a normal kick would suffice. Hasn't anyone been listening in this subthread?
Fancy dan footballers are the best sort of footballers.
I've had my fill of watching people just being dead good at heading and kicking the ball at someone else's head. I want to see rabona's at someones head.
Ronaldo when he was that greedy little kid just doing step overs for a laugh was great and getting kicked in the air by Bolton. More of that please. Less of Ronaldo with his incredibly flaring neck muscles just smashing goals in.
This is why I love Adel Taarabt. Pretty sure he just keeps a personal tally of nutmegs during a match.
in my original post.
ball rolls into outfield
*guy runs on to it*
*ball absolutely smashes into back of the net*
"holy shit! who was that?"
*camera pans back on to Jags celebrating*
*my face explodes*
Obviously the ultimate one was Gerrard in the Cup Final in 2006 for us Reds.
*head in hands dejection*
`Go on Stevie`
I must add that I didn't revel in that Cup victory as much as I otherwise would've, because I was in a pub surrounded by dejected Hammers and I knew just as much as they had that a robbing had occurred.
I make absolutely no apology, however, for losing every last ounce of my shit when Gerrard thundered that one in.
in fact you could say they become "most effective way of scoring from that position but really hard to pull off. "
but I know some people use them for that reason e.g. Di Maria's crosses.
They don't outweigh the laughable predicament of being a professional footballer with only one usable foot.
it's a shame no footballers have brains, otherwise they could all be about 400 times better.
is that Lamela is probably the type of twat who'll try and replicate it in a game that actually matters and fuck it right up. Going to be a timeless Vine spawned in the near future as a result of last night
*Lamela attempts rabona, ball goes out for throw in*
*cut to Daniel Levy shaking head*
*going for the old caerphillewellyn singh* mocked by fans who know the difference between that and a rabona
he's good at them.
But are mostly pointless.
He did do one where he faked a whole team out (West Ham I think?), nutmegged a couple of them, and then rabona crossed it right onto Torres' head from two yards out. He headed it over though, the shitcunt.
The West Ham one where he beat half the team is here though, complete with WAMP WAMP dancehall music:
Then Mourinho started managing him :(
there was a time where he was Englands best player by miles. Real shame he lost it.
Most talented young player I've ever seen by an absolute mile. Definitely had fitness issues, but really should have been the best English player of his generation.
Cole's best form was under Mourinho, the 04/05 season and then 05/06 before the World Cup. His best ever performances, from memory, were when Chelsea beat Barca 4-2 at home, and beat United 3-0 for the title (when he made Rio look stupid)- both under Mourinho.
Mourinho started getting on his back towards the end of the second season because he wasn't tracking back or working as hard. He thought he was trying to save himself for the World Cup (a bit like Oscar last year). Then the season after that (before Mourinho got fired) his rubbish form continued.
Enjoy watching Oscar and Hazard turn into Sidwell and Savage.
how the hell could he miss the target from there?
what the hell happened to that guy?
Alvaro Recoba was amazing at them
When we were teenagers my friend used to attempt them in the park and at the same time, mimicking the Channel 4 Football Italia intro, shout, "Ita-lia-no!". It was fucking hilarious as inevitably they would all go badly wrong. RIP my friend.
just to convince people he won't be starting on Sunday.
Pretty impressive commitment to lying.
and he's cuddly and useless like he usually is I will be focusing on him and it won't be so bad.
also a bit annoying preferring big money-success-buying-mega-bastards over Chelsea.
Bloke's playing havoc with my team selection with this bullshit
Pretty sure we're going to fake Costa's death.
you always take lamela with you
*do do be do
do be do
do be do be do be do
do be do be do be*
but obviously changing the title to "Rabona". Quite annoying.
"Rabona, come closer..." etc. Argh.
Idiot. Shut up.
the next line "shed softly your watery eye" makes the (ra)boner element all too real
I'm going to Ambramovichs club under the ground tonight, you heard me.
Saw Neville Staples band there a while back. Pricey though.
As to pubs- I would strongly recommend the Finborough Arms near West Brompton station (it's a short walk to the ground but when you get there you'll be on the right side for 'Under the Bridge'). Very good beer, decent price for West London and the landlord is cool.
Theres also a place called the Chelsea Pensioner on the Fulham road. It's recently been done up so looks good inside, though I've not been in (you need to be on a guestlist on match days- MODERN FOOTBALL).
Kings Road also has a few decent pubs. Usually avoid these on matchdays as its where the idiots congregate but they'll likely be nice on a Friday.
Need some new adjectives.
I think that means I can get it wherever and whenever I like.
Thanks for the recommenders.
you're not the Beverly Hills Cop, meths
"First of all, he has an eye for a goal. He can score a goal first and foremost. Secondly, and more importantly, he wants to score a goal and he puts himself in positions where he can score a goal."
^ this man is employed as an attacking coach in the premier league
1. eye for (a) goal
2. can score a goal
3. wants to score a goal
4. puts himself in positions where he can score a goal
can someone ask meths to watch el classico in a pub near victoria please
Bored as fuck.
What is happening to this place? The football threads were the last refuge and now this.
it's nearly Xmas
Best value for money transfer so far this season = Diafra Sakho
Worst value for money transfer so far this season = Luke Shaw
Worst player so far this season = Mesut Ozil
Can you name the club teams with 5 or more players selected for the 2014 FIFA World Cup?
might have to watch speedway instead
Does that mean they're blaming the Albania FA for something in another country?
the Albanian FA could be held responsible for their fans bringing banners to the game and for their players refusing to return to the pitch to complete the game after it had all "calmed down". I assume they've got a fine for the former and lost the points for the latter?
