Picture yourself lying sprawled on the ground with your chest heaving, heart thumping, lungs screaming for air and your muscles afire. The only emotion you can feel is pure unadulterated bliss.
That sweet mix of pain and joy can only mean one thing – you have just scored a goal !!!!
It is the second greatest feeling in the world and now you are hopelessly addicted to the Beautiful Game.
Football or Soccer in its purest form is simplicity itself. There is a ball at your feet and your natural instinct is to kick it. Like this:
The Best Goal ever:
And its carbon copy:
The Best Header ever:
The Best Free Kick ever:
Almost as good:
The Best Save ever:
The Most Amazing Play ever:
The Most Ridiculous Play ever:
The Best Team Goal ever:
The Best Team ever:
The Best Penalty ever:
The Worst Penalty ever:
The Best Goal Celebrations ever:
Just for the record:
Maradona > Pele
Messi is the best footballer ever.
And finally, a timeless quote from Bill Shankly.
Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude.
I can assure you it is much, much more important than that'.
The great fallacy is that the game is first and last about winning. It is nothing of the kind. The game is about glory, it is about doing things in style and with a flourish, about going out and beating the lot, not waiting for them to die of boredom.
