Nicely Put

Post by arover on Fri Nov 27, 2009 11:48 am

In the context of great goals of the decade this:

6) Paul Peschisolido SHEFFIELD UNITED v Nottingham Forest, play-off semi-final 15 May 2003

Don't click on the link until you have read this bit. It'll seem ridiculous.I'm
not for a moment suggesting this is one of the greatest goals of the
past decade. Well, I am. And I'm not. It is clearly not a great goal.
Well it is, but not in the way that Messi's goal is or Rivaldo's is.
Please indulge me for a few moments and let me explain. Ask, say, a
Burnley fan for his goal of the decade. Chances are it will be this.Rooney? Cambiasso? Give any self-respecting New Zealander the choice and he will most likely take Rory Fallon
over that pair. It is not just the goal itself, it is what the goal
represents, and, in a way, isn't that what all of these have been about
(on some level at least)?This is mine. My favourite moment of
terrace ecstasy. The one that meant the most. The highest high. But
this entry isn't just for the Canadian Kak√°, clumsily weaving his way
towards a weary Nottingham Forest defence.This is for Lee Steele.This is for Dean Windass.This is for David Wetherall.This
is for them and hundreds more like them. The greatest don't have to
belong to everyone. It is enough if they belong to a few.

I've only just realised that Paul Peschisolido was a link. I watched all the others though. What significance does this have to Rovers fans? Far from being one of the best goals at all. It's irrelevant.

No shit Sherlock but last time I checked arover was a Blackburn fan, not a Sheff Utd fan. Why not pick a memorable goal from our club?

I am guessing by the number 6 next to the link that it was an extract from a list, and the text that accompanies the link caught his eye and he just wished to express his appreciation at the reasoning that a great goal doesn't necessarily have to be a 40 yard volley from a Brazilian

You got that one right.

Aplogies for it being in the wrong section. I just thought it was expressed really well and worth a mention.

I was going to post this reply 15 mins ago but got distracted and some of the points have been answered now
-----------
This has confused me for a number of reasons

1) As DD has said Arover is a blackburn fan so why is it special to him. Memories of us going up in the play offs?

2) Burnley fans would probably say their play off winning goal

3) The lines don't go completely accross the page

4) I thought youtube was blocked in Turke

It is a really good goal, though. I don't remember that at all. Shows how much attention I've paid to that league since Rovers were in it for two of the longest years of my life.

I just copied and pasted it from the Guardian. You Tube is banned in Turkey.

Why is YouTube banned in Turkey? Is it also banned in China?

They're backward like that. They don't like the stuff posted by mischief makers lampooning Attaturk.

I've just found an extract from the East:

Dat interweb contains dusty and his mind bending word powder. People would march on a square, love eachother and discuss their final fantasy just before their final breath. Send in the tanks

Yeah I get it.


It was you Wils? I remember my phone ringing someone in my pocket. Entirely accidental, sorry. Thing is, this piece of crap phone doesn't display names, just numbers so didn't know who the fuck I'd called. Sorry.

Suppose you did a favour in a way as needed to make my apartment look good for a visitor coming round tomorrow night but on the other hand I have to be in work early for a 4 hour meeting. Debatable whether I would have slept right through after falling asleep at 7 on the sofa but I like to think that I would.
