Jesper Blomqvist didn't miss, which just proves that he's a better player then Pelé
But Giggs would have been through on goal if he had just past it back to him. Of course there was time, he took one rather large touch to get it out of his feet, solely with the intention of shooting as he always wanted to score a goal like that. Go watch it again, he just needs to slip it through the defenders
Jordi Cruyff scored at OT in the last day of the 96/97 season, vs West Ham, but it was a rebound from a Scholes shot that hit the bar and I’m sure it crossed the line but was given to Cruyff. Scholes’ shot was one of the fiercest I’ve seen to this day
Rashford had so many I can't even remember one.
Mendes goal for Spurs vs United.
Robben vs Spain in 2010. Probably would’ve made the Dutch NT world champions, if it wasn’t for Casillas’ toe...
@Zehner Glad that you posted that Ronaldinho one vs Bilbao. I don't think there is a better opportunity that describes the thread title as well as that one
Henrik Larsson's disallowed goal vs Portsmouth during his short spell with United.
Not able to find a smaller clip, watch from 4.20
Would've been one of the great cl final goals. Rooney at his full monstrous best, great take and cross from Ronnie, diving header from tevez.
Actually watching those full highlights back you appreciate how well both teams played that day, 2 really good sides going at it. Great game
Why didn't Giggs shoot in the first place though? He had all the space and time in the world, as well as an empty net.
Diana Ross at the 1994 World Cup, surely.
A couple of disallowed ones by buzzkill referees:
Nah. I remember being pissed at Giggs for not having the balls to shoot when he had it. It was a much harder shot when he finally gave it to Rooney but still worth trying.
I also didn't understand the mentality of Hart, he was laughing and smiling after he saved it. City were losing 1-0
Pele also had a shot from the half-way line against Czechoslovakia earlier in the tournament that dipped by the top corner by inches. The innovation required to pull these off - at the World Cup no less, when nobody had done anything like that before - probably doesn't get talked about enough.
It's usually included in video highlights of the 70 WC. As you said, nobody tried that back then, and some of the football in 70 looked decades ahead of 66. The England team of 70 was far better than the one that won the WC.
This one always springs to mind. A moment of genius and then total feck up.
Doesn't count because it never crossed the line. The photos prove it
Joe Hart saving this still annoys me. And we won the fecking game.
Both Hart and cameraman went the wrong way.
Gignac hitting the post at France vs Portugal 2016 Euro Final, in the last minute of the game.
Such a good play from Gignac and Evra, so unlucky France, that was their Championship goal. I still can't believe that wasn't a goal.
I remember watching the game with a couple of french friends, and one of them literally threw his beer bottle directly to the wall while cursing in french
Big Amo's free kick 1h 14m 0s in
This one always springs to mind....
It was Solskjaer that nodded that one in - Cruyff scored a left footed Volley in the 2nd half
Utd vs QPR 1983. I was in the Stretford Paddock.
QPR GK kicks the ball out to about 20 yards inside the Utd half (towards us, quite a big kick)
QPR had a guy called Simon Stainrod playing for them. He brings this down first touch before it had bounced & is closed down from in front & then inside. He nutmegs both these Utd players & is now half turned about 40-45 yards out & not that far from the sideline, whereupon he tries for the far corner bending it from out to in with his right foot.
His superb control had brought forth some grudging appreciation but we were now laughing at the shot which had started out heading for the gap between the SE stand & the start of the original cantilever Utd Road stand thing. Then the ball started to drift back. Gary Bailey had been not bothering to move, he then had another look & decided still not to bother because he was already done. I think some of us thought it was in & there was the noise of breath being taken away all round the ground basically. Certainly where we were, because we had such a great view.
It must have cleared the bar by less than a foot & landed / bounced on the roof of the net just above the 'postage stamp' bit of the goal. Incredible attempt.
A lot of us then applauded, which was nice, & hardly the done thing in those days either.
John Sheridan smacking the bar against Italy in 1994 after a mazy dribble from a very young Roy Keane. That would have been brilliant considering it was against a defense containing Maldini, Baresi and Costa Curta I think. Its about 3:30 into the grainiest footage going!
Quite right, beg your pardon
masterpiece from Platini.
not quite a famous almost goal thing, but this is from the first game of last season in which Ajax' brilliance first properly became apparant
Remember standing behind the goal for that game and couldn't how that was disallowed!
That is why it is a near miss. It is not a goal.
