Golgolgolgolgolgolgolgolgolgol: 1

Sometimes I just want to put some beautiful clips of football up, without having to write a long post about some Uruguayan or Bulgarian player from the 80s to accompany them. They speak for themselves, anyway, unless I say they don't, in which case I'll add a witless comment.

Anyway, the beautiful game:

Almost the best part of this is that he misses:

He doesn't miss:

Matias Fernandez:

Dejan Savicevic, a little genius:

Hugo Sanchez, making that Ronaldinho effort look easy:

Diego Maradona, playing for Spurs. No, seriously:

The Fernandez goal is my favourite of these, it's kinda reminds me of the famous Giggs run and goal in the cup, but there's just so much intent. It's like when he muscles off the challenge he becomes an unstoppable force, the rest of the opposing team don't want to get near him, never mind tackle him.

After he shrugs the midfielder off the rest of them are resigned. It's one player breaking a team in one run. Brilliant.

Oh aye, you gotta love a dribble. Dribbling players are the most beloved, no? Alongside no-nonsense committed midfielders and defenders. The greatest goal ever - you know which one I mean - is a dribble. Most of the really vaunted players of the last few years are excellent dribblers - both Ronaldos, Zidane, Messi, Ronaldinho, even Kaka or Rooney...theres just something beautiful and admirable about, as you say, one player breaking a team in one run. Look what I did, it says.
