Folklore Goals


Recommended Posts

Some excellent suggestions.

 

i know we won 4-0 in the BDM but Mellors goal that put us on our way was pretty good and I think it raised the home support.

 

Alos what about TC at the stain.

 

soz they are mentioned!

The Varadi goal is a folklore goal where I was in the stadium but never actually saw go in.

First goal I ever saw Ken Knighton v Bolton 74 saved us from relegation 

I will go for another Varadi goal as well v Forest first ever top flight game i saw in 84 

I was gonna say Varadi vs Forest. Cracking run and finish following a Forest corner if it’s the one I’m thinking of.

Not a Wednesday goal but one I've always remembered is a goal at S6 in 1992 by a Chelsea player called Graham Stewart.

Picked up the ball in his own half proceeded to carry the ball, took on 3/4 players & put the ball pass Chris Woods at the Kop end.

Would that be Graham Stuart?

Peter Rodrigues vs Luton, September 1972. Last goal of our 4-0, the right back was almost in today's North Stand bad lads area when he connected so perfectly that it was still going up when it went in.  Incredible hit!

That amazing day featured another beauty, a classy Pete Eustace high chip over the goalie from perhaps the edge of the box. And United lost 0-5 at Anfield.

I think Semedo's only goal deserves a 'folklore' mention [Adams Park, Oct 2011]

... & I swear he was the nearest player on the pitch to that partridge when it finally disappeared 🤫

That Varadi goal against Forest was the first game back in the top flight after the 84 promotion.  Won 3-1, that was the goal that wrapped it up.  The 13 year old me was somewhere at the bottom of the East Bank.

I don't think this one has been suggested but was a beauty.

 

Sheltons overhead kick from near the edge of the box away at Newcastle the season we got promoted to Div 1. Just remember the mayhem when it went in. I was stood right behind the goal more or less in line with him.

Just watched the highlights of that Forest game to remind myself of what happened.  Eventful.  Zico’s twice taken penalty, both to the keeper’s left when he went the wrong way.  Hodge going walk about for the equaliser.  Varadi’s 70 yard run and screamer in top corner. Then Pearson’s…whatever that was.  🤣

Di Piedi at Brum, about 700 of us there 

I was in the corporate boxes ...we somehow blagged a space in the AutoWindscreens box......went absolutely mental when di Piedi scored....ended up in a heap on the floor.....

That was when he took the corner flag out and started waving it around.....was also the day England played a WC qualifier a couple of hours later.....at Old Trafford if memory serves.....

This was the goal that sprung to mind as soon as I saw this topic.  It wasn't often I went in the North but was high up towards Leppings Lane end. 

Did Sterland score a similar type of goal v someone ?

He scored vs Arsenal at home when Hodge rolled it out to him on corner of our box. He went all the way to their box and blasted it home. We went in at h.t. 3-0 up.  He allegedly burst into tears in the dressing room when told that the film cameraman had missed it.

I think we drew 3-3.

Didn't Merson have a blinder?

Cheers Fred.  Can't believe I could not remember the game.

I was working in Lincoln. Left work at 5 to 3, listened to sterlands's goal on radio sheffield.  Got to Hillsborough at half time and couldn't get it. Finally got in 10 minutes from time to see arsenal get a last minute goal to complete a 3 goal comeback to draw 3-3

Can't remember, Reesh. What I do remember is, having conceded three goals and two points in the 2nd half, there seemed to be no complaints from our crowd. They simply applauded them off the pitch. It had been a top class game from both sides.
