View Full Version : Late goals
14-03-1999, 01:45 PM
The best and most gutting late goals have got to be Hoppy and Cl*ridge at Wembley. Others that stick in my mind are the 3 occasions when we've beaten Millwall in the dying minutes, and one of the most terrible ones conceeded has to be by that little sh*t le Saux who equalised for Ch*lsea to make it 2-2 one Boxing Day. Completely ruined my Christmas, and I still hate him now. It wasn't Beckham that ruined our World Cup, it was le Saux for that last minute f*ck up v Romania.
There's plenty more, remind me...
Lets get the bad ones over with first then, Claridge's Wembley miscue aside Leicester have actually inflicted the last minute goal on us 3 other times. During the 88-89 season, then in the 3rd round of the cup in 91-92 I think, then there was that disgraceful goal last season when Izett illegally ran on to the field having been receiving treatment on the touchline and scored a blinder which wasn't disallowed. God I hate Leicester! Peter Beardsley for Newcastle in 94-95 was a bad one as was Fowler at Anfield the same season in the Coca Cola. And who can forget Iain Dowie's goal for the scummers when we were totally robbed a few years back? Those West London tossers also did it to us when Cascarhino stole one at the death.
In our favour there are less.... suprisingly! Southend and Derby at home during the championship season spring to mind. Shipps against Charlton a few years ago and best of all Freedman's second goal in the play off semi against Wolves who had just got a last minute away goal themselves. The recent great Brummie own goal was fantastic but of course that moment when David Hopkin curled the most delicious shot into that Wembley goal will always be remebered.
Well said LP I think you got it covered.
