Fantastic stuff Timbo!
For me, this was his greatest goal ever.
I've got a clear rule when it comes to judging amazing goals. I think of it this way:
If I was playing against a team of 5 year olds, with a 5 year old keeper in goal, could I score that goal?
I bet you I could lob the keeper from the half way line, or pile drive one in for 30 yards. I could dribble past 3 or 4 and slot it in.
But there are certain goals that I could never score in my life. Goals that require amazing technique and touch, unbelievable class and timing.
Luis Suarez's goal vs Newcastle is one of them. I could never in my life control a high ball with my shoulder, swivel my entire body so not to touch the ball and round the keeper all in one go. It doesn't matter if I'm playing against 5 year olds. I'll never do that.
Pure genius. God, I miss him.
