I've never known what to make of Nayim's goal. Was that *really* what he meant to do? I think it was roughly 98% luck, 1% audacity and 1% trying to waste a bit of time and play for penalties, but perhaps I'm doing him a disservice. I certainly won't deny that it looked spectacular - but "jammy" doesn't even begin to cover it! I dunno...
Speaking of which, John Barnes can't do that! One for the scrapbook, indeed. I bet he was out for weeks following his acrobatics in scoring that goal. I'm convinced that Matt Le Tissier's goal against Blackburn took the gong this year, and deservedly so. Andy Clarke netted a fine effort to be a contender, but I've little doubt that the irony factor played and even bigger part in its selection (a *passing* goal by Wimbledon against Liverpool - perish the thought!).
The music, incidentally, is The Life of Riley by the Lightning Seeds - a song I will forever associate with the Goal of the Month/Season competition.
