ICYMI: Sweeping strikes

You’ll be forgiven for missing out on the midweek tie between Cardiff City and Blackburn Rovers in the Championship but the match witnessed a couple of excellent goals – chief among them this 40-odd yard strike from Rovers’ forward Adam Armstrong. A real instinctive pearler.

ICYMI: SPALs it up

Serie A minnows SPAL are currently battling relegation from the Italian top-flight and can do without such disastrous interventions from their captain Francesco Vicari. Leading AC Milan 2-1, Vicari’s attempts to block a cross cost them the win in the 94th minute. Ouch.

#ICYMI: Goal of the Year

This week’s #ICYMI is a simply sensational hit from Zlatko Junuzovic, scoring one of seven goals against Rapid Wien for the fizzy pop works team leading the Austrian Bundesliga. The involvement of the crossbar undoubtedly making it all the better.

#ICYMI: Don’t Luiz your head…

Football is back, and while we could’ve been worried about players taking a few games to get into their stride, David Luiz delivered from the off. Having been dropped to the bench and only entering the game due to an injury, he fluffed his clearance leading to Man City’s opener in first half stoppage time, before compounding his misery by giving away a penalty and getting sent off for an unwanted hat-trick just after the break.

#ICYMI: Army of the Dead

Jadon Sancho is the unlucky star of this week’s #ICYMI – seen here shooting wide from six yards out against Hertha Berlin to the indifference of a phantom crowd piped down the wires from an empty Westfalenstadion. Strange times.

#ICYMI: Rattled

This week’s entertainment comes from Liga I in Poland, where Miedź Legnica’s Spanish forward Marquitos failed to make Stal Mielec pay for some truly comical defending, with a bar-rattling miss from close range. A real clown-car of a footie clip.

#ICYMI: Heid

Some behind-closed-doors disappointment from Bundesliga 2 this week courtesy of Heidenheim’s Robert Leipertz. Having won a soft-looking penalty, Leipertz meekly passes it wide. Naff all round.

#ICYMI: Missing

The Bundesliga returned last weekend, the first of the big European leagues to resume after lockdown, and the behind-closed-doors restrictions made for some eerie watching – demonstrated by Martin Hinteregger’s sensational goal-line clearance for Frankfurt against Mönchengladbach. The roar following his heroics glaringly absent.

#ICYMI: Zidane

On this day, 18 years ago Zinedine Zidane scored one of the best goals you’re ever likely to see in a Champions League final – a sensational volley against Bayern Leverkusen that secured Real Madrid’s ninth European Cup. You’ve seen it before but why not watch it again. Well worth it.

#ICYMI: Origi

Last week we featured Lionel Messi’s 600th goal for Barca scored in the first leg of last year’s Champions League semi-final against Liverpool. So we thought it only fair to include Divock Origi’s winner in the return leg at Anfield this week. Some quick thinking, and complacent defending, combined to create a memorable moment.

#ICYMI: Messi’s 600th

On this day 12 months ago, Barcelona legend Lionel Messi scored his 600th goal for the club during the semi-final against Liverpool in the Champions League. An amazing goal to mark an incredible achievement. Can’t remember what happened in the return leg, mind.

#ICYMI: Chipmunk

This week 34 years ago British pub quiz history was made as Alvin Martin became the first player to score against three different goalkeepers in a single game during West Ham’s 8-1 thrashing of Newcastle United. A mad game, all in all.

#ICYMI: Nachtmerrie

On this day two years ago London-born Fankaty Dabo, then playing for Vitesse, scored one of the greatest own goals we’ve ever seen – so we’re offering it up again to make sure it does not get forgotten. A real classic.

#ICYMI: Outliers

The Belarusian Premier League is the only league in Europe still going – due to orders from their controversial and rather authoritarian president. As you can see fans are largely staying away, so not many saw this superb volley by Momo Yansane for Isloch. Strange times indeed.

#ICYMI: I don’t know, Jeff

On this day ten years ago Chris Kamara gave us some of the least attentive football reportage we’ve ever seen – completely missing a red card at Fratton Park as Portsmouth took on Blackburn. Professional as ever.

#ICYMI: Trumpet

Former-NUFC, West Ham and Villa winger Nobby Solano was arrested this week for breaking curfew in Peru – caught on his way to a party (sans his famous trumpet), so we’re using this as an excuse to dig up his ludicrous goal against Spurs from 2004-5. A real peach.

#ICYMI: Whitt Wonders

You may have seen the very sad news this week that the former-Aston Villa and Cardiff City midfielder Peter Whittingham passed away after an accident at the age of 35. Peter was a Bluebirds favourite with a rocket of a left foot – so here are five of his best efforts in Cardiff City colours.

ICYMI: Empty seats

The Coronavirus pandemic has this week shown us what football without fans is really like – and we have to say it’s weird. Coaches shouting instructions, players talking to each other, the ref’s whistle echoing – all have eerie prominence without fans in the stands. Ighalo’s excellent effort for Manchester United against LASK on Thursday a great example of the difference the crowd makes.

#ICYMI: Thrown goal

The bumbling, Clouseauesque star of this week’s #ICYMI is Grenoble Foot 38’s Brice Maubleu. The Frenchman put his side 2-0 nil down shortly after conceding the first with a catastrophic blunder.

#ICYMI: Espanlol

Wolves progressed through the to the last-16 of the Europa League with relative ease this week, beating Espanyol 6-3 over the course of two games. Their Portuguese winger Pedro Neto had a glorious chance to round the tie off in style for the midlands club but made a total hash of an open-goal chance. Plonker.
