And finally…a linesman’s worst nightmare

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

One of the more niggling annoyances at a game is the guy (or gal) who sits behind us and bemoans every last offside decision given. Yeah, we’d like to think our star striker wasn’t really offside for the 38th time this half but how can you possibly tell when it’s that tight and you’re sitting behind the goal. At the wrong end. Cleverly these fans from, we think, Spain have found a solution to this problem – dozens of supporters all run up and down the touchline after the linesman (yes, we said linesman).

And finally… that’s a booting

Riley McGree of Newcastle Jets in the A-League provides us with this fantastic entry to And finally…this week. His instinctive scorpion-kick effort is destined to be on this years shortlist for FIFA’s Puskás Award. 

And finally… heading to Kiev

You’ve probably all seen it by now, but it’s so good we thought it worth another airing. Behold, James Milner’s fantastic own goal for Liverpool in their Champions League semi-final victory this week. A real gem.

And finally… orbital

How hard is it to score unopposed from 12 yards? Well, as FC Nantes’ Emiliano Sala shows, it’s easy to put just a little bit too much power on it – sending his penalty into low earth orbit. To rub salt into the wounds, they’d go on to lose 2-0 to Montpellier. Watch your head Commander Hadfield.

And finally… no look

Fair to say Elfsborg defender Robert Gojani had an absolutely mare this week – scoring an own goal and getting sent off before their Allsvenskan match against Häcken was 20 minutes old. His hilarious no-look effort sent Elfsborg on their way to a 5-0 hammering. Oh dear.
