    Was it a fluke?

    Yes Atsu comically slices his shot and then it grazes off Murphy's boot. But it looks to me that Diame then angles his foot to direct it goalbound with only a millisecond to react to his teammates' miskicks. So I think this could be a decent bit of technique by Diame

People who love their club but are realistic about their club's prospects in dire circumstances. That appealed to me. That is what I call true loyalty. Supporting the club as you have done through the hard times. I am prepared to be here through these hard times and to develop a squad as I have started to do in preparation for the day that we all move to a new stadium at Falmer. I need your support, patience and understanding in the long-term because there is no quick fix. I hope you will continue to give me that opportunity." Mark McGhee, 17th April 2006

      Of course it was a fluke! It will probably feature on YouTubes "Top 10 Flukiest goals of 2017"

      The touch was intentional, that it spun into the top corner was by luck far more than judgement. Good improvisation but he had very little control over where it ended up.

      are you high?

      He made a slight movement in reaction to the ball coming to him.
      There was no technique involved. He wasn't intending to send it goalwards

      Pretty much how I read it having seen a couple of replays.

      I've not heard nor seen an interview myself, but I travelled home with Albion staff who mentioned that Diame confessed it was a complete fluke and he knew nothing about it.
      Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      Your 2nd par contradicts your 3rd - and it appears you don't have the excuse of drugs?

      It was a fluke goal that produced a deserved victory. And that's all that matters. You can also argue 'flukes' (which count the same as goal of the seasons) tend to happen more when inviting non stop pressure for most of the game. The harder I work, the luckier I get and all that.

      Diame confessed after the match to Sky sports it was a fluke.
