Thought about that immediately yesterday, the main difference being what was at stake in the moment.
Well, Stevie’s technique was simpler and therefore a lot more repeatable and that’s why he scored so many crucial goals from distance. Every time he connected with a volley, you knew it would be at least close. By contrast, if Thiago’s connection was off by half a millimeter, the ball would have sailed into the stands or bobbled towards the corner flag. This time it worked out perfectly and it was a timely goal (the team’s confidence visibly grew after it went in), but it’s not something you would ever count on working consistently.
Its the equivalent of crickets outswinging yorker that shot from Thiago
It's better man, You have a number of players who can now produce those swinging yorkers.. I can't remember another hit like that.
All valid - except Thiago has hit this kind of ball repeatedly, which is exactly what is most amazing. Gerrard's was "easier", but the pressure much higher.
You’re the Greek Lucas?
Pfft... I'm better than Lucas.
The one against Watford was better
Disagree. Against city meant more and was against better, much better, opposition.
Against inferior players. vs City was better. Nice to have the debate though !
Watford goal every day of the week..
City goal was great.. the highest level... But the Watford goal managed to take it somehow even to another level .
Yeah I liked that video until Kanye started rapping about bleached assholes...
(Like really, is that the best he could come up with)
Well that puts to bed the notion it touched the grass
Kanye's rapping about Boris Johnson?
It clearly touches the ground as it approaches the defender and then is skipping up very marginally afterwards. The description 'kissing the ground' is perfect.
I must need glasses. It doesn’t even look close from those videos
