Goals. We all love them. Maybe not so much when they go against you. With Saturday’s demolition still in mind, I thought I’d look back at a few goals I’ll probably never forget. I’d been meaning to blog for a while and after the weekend’s display, I (and most likely, all my fellow Bees) need cheering up! I’m not usually one for remembering goals, score lines and the like, so there must be something special about the following four that make them stick in the mind. I spent hours looking for copies of these goals online and didn't have much luck, which sort of spoils it a bit, but still...
The ‘was it intentional?’ goal
Sam Deering V Chesterfield (2 – 2)
The ‘dead-ball wonder’ goal
A free kick from 35 yards out in the dying stages of this game early in the season saw us win our first match of the 07/08 campaign. With the score level and looking set to stay that way, man of the moment, Jason Puncheon stepped up to score a wonder goal. He had previously hit the bar from a similar position, with only five minutes remaining – so was undoubtedly going to step up again. It’s always great to win a game in added time, but with a goal so magical makes it all the more special. JP only ever scored amazing goals, and it’s no real surprise he’s getting his chance in the Premier League.
The ‘justice’ goal
Jake Hyde V Notts County (1 – 0)
Notts County, the most unpopular team in the league during the season. Munto finance took over, Sven was back (albeit, shortly) on the English football scene, and a team with Lee Hughes involved will always prove to be despised. Add to that Neal Bishop who left the Bees in somewhat negative circumstances and you’ve got a game on your hands. Jake Hyde started on the bench, but joined the action in the last minute, before the fourth official waved four minutes on the board. The saying ‘right place, right time’ couldn’t be more apt when Hydey pounced on a loose ball in the final seconds, wrapping up three points to put past Kasper Schmeichel. Oh, and if anyone remembers the words to his song – let me know! I only know the tune…
|Sven watches on.|
Dean Sinclair V Manchester United (4 – 1)
|The day I'll never forget.|
