Oh come on we all love screamers from distance. Right on the sweet spot off like a bullet and you know it’s going in. It’s skill keeping the ball down, how many do we see off into row Z… it’s as good as a great save. I added that bit just for you 😃

I don't really equate that Schick goal as being a 'screamer' from distance, though. Same with the Beckham goal from the half-way line. If I'm remembering correctly, Charlie Adam and Xabi Alonso scored similar ones, those goals took skill for sure but I just wouldn't put them in the same 'long-range screamer' category of those where the keeper was actually in a position to try to save the shot.

Like those where the player spots the keeper off their line and give it a go and the keeper just tips it over. The first thing that comes to mind to me is what the hell was he doing so far off his line to begin with. Might make a Herculean effort to sprint back and adjust his body to tip it over but was often their own fault for having to do that at all!

Ouch 🤣

When you see something like that it makes you think about stuff and I think its an appropriate time to also say how positive this forum is for myself and my mental health and mood.  It’s a great place

The problem with the gesture itself (in my opinion) is that there are no concrete goals. 'End racism' is a noble idea, but how do we know when that's been achieved? Can it be achieved? I wonder i

That one reminds me of Paul Robinson scoring with a free kick from just outside his own box. Think he beat The Cycling GK Ben Foster with that one.

He did indeed; I'm sure recently I watched Foster talking about it again. If anyone hasn't checked out his channel by the way you really should, his youtube content is excellent viewing. Hope the PL let him keep the gopro!

Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, France, Czechia, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, England, Wales

The confirmed teams in the round of 16 so far.

This can't be correct because Austria have made it 100% They're playing Italy I think.

It's because I forgot to type Austria.

I did that from memory.

Agree with Sandy..  in fact the only goals I really dislike are own goals..  scuffed shots, miscues and ricochets are fine, just never like to see anyone putting it in their own net, no matter which team it is

Oh come on, some own goals are so comedic that you can't help but enjoy them:

And of course, the legendary Chris Brass...

It's a personal preference but I honestly don't care that much any more about goals scored from daft distances when players have such a huge target to hit. Marshall was so far off his line that it was a case of hitting the target and that's it. Obviously still takes skill and the fact he was running onto the ball when he hit it and didn't have much time to think about it makes it better but yeah, I prefer goals where the strike makes it difficult for the keeper rather than the keeper making it easier for the person hitting the ball.

Having said that, I don't know which I'd choose from between Christensen and Schick's. He's caught it superbly and the pace is what really seems to beat the keeper but I still kind of feel like he should at least get a touch on it. It feels like his positioning is a bit off because of the 2 saves he's just made down to the right hand side.

Thats why I'd feel Christensen gets the nod (between the two). So far, anyway.

As you say, Schick had an empty goal to aim at. Christensen had to shoot through a bunch of players, from just far enough out that the keeper still had a decent chance of making the save. But he put a lot of power in the shot and as you also said, the keeper was still trying to get his bearings from the previous saves.

Congrats to England too 😊🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Hope you take one of the top two spots in your group 👍

I have a funny feeling Southgate may be trying to engineer a 2nd place finish, as it apparently gives us an easier match-up in the last 16. 🤔

Denmark's 86 song ... 

Frank Arnesen singing a verse ... He could actually sing ... Great video 👍❤️

That is brilliant (for a football song). Don't understand a a word, obviously, but it sounds great. Got a bit of a World in Motion vibe to it.

Sounded beautifully haunting with thousands of fans singing it in the stadium.

Yeah, it's a great piece of music. 

There's a new song for every championship, but no one can match this song. 

The melody, the chorus, the bassline and then some great singing makes it perfect 😎👌

This one from Ronaldo is one of the best long range screamers that I've seen (apart from Emerson).

It doesn't beat Clarence Seedorf though. That's my "go-to" goal for long range efforts.

    • If Muniz does fall through we really do need to get some players in sharpish We've lost 30 goals from the players who've left, including 6 of our 8 top scorers (assuming Akpom leaves) and so far have brought in 15 goals with Ikpeazu, Crooks and Ameobi  This for a side that's already notoriously low scoring and lacking in creativity What worries me is the absence of links to wingers and attacking midfielders other than Lazaro and a few washed up has beens  11 days till Fulham...    
    • What will happen is; Muniz will go to Athletico We will bid for Lazaro We will agree a deal for Lazaro  Fulham will bid for lazaro We will buy Smith from Rotherham
    • Get begging Muniz to join us Twitter link
    • He will undoubtedly sign for Fulham and play for one of the most inoffensive clubs in English football in one of the least intimidating grounds in England.  He won't have a clue though. 
    • Yeah that is what I meant. Fulham never technically beat us to Bryan. They beat Villa to him. We were technically not in running for Bryan as far as player was concerned. His 3rd and final choice.
