    Might as well have listed the scorer as Flukey McFlukeface
    ........but there's still some idiot on another thread claiming it was a Stockdale error!

      Clearly that's your archetypal continentals innit

      The ability to see a ball ping 2 ways and to sort out the angle, slice and speed to get the ball spinning wildly over the despairing keeper and defender on the line. Only the highly intelligent can see what a planned goal it was.

      Also the same highly intelligent people who are the only ones who can see how great a leader corbyn is.

      I pity those so blind as they cannot see it
      Dislike list

      Temporary - East, Dyche, Barton, Boro
      Permanent - Dean, Challis, Moreton, Pardew, Bellotti, Stanley, Archer

      It was a decent payback for the hours that Newcastle spend on the training ground, practising flukey ways to defeat the opposition.
      не съгласявам се!

      What if there were no hypothetical questions?

      Sky earlier in the day showed 2 goals as NUFC goal highlights... both penalty area ping pong finally falling at the feet of one if their players... so yes, it seems flukes play a part.

      It was clearly a fluke - he's said so now but even fron his immediate reaction you could tell. It was the only way they were going to get that first goal. Stockdale even passed the ball to Gouffran in front of goal and they still mucked that up.

      It was a fluke, he wasn't even looking at the ball. Still you make your own luck I guess it was not unmerited equaliser.

      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
      Nope he admitted on SKY that it was a fluke so nothing to do with technique. He even smiled as he admitted it was just plain lucky.
      Falmer, concrete proof that if you build it they will come

      Tell me, have you ever played the game at any point since you were 7 years old? Even five a side? I only ask because if you had, you'd appreciate that this sort of thing happens and when you're the one who scores it, you immediately put your hand up to acknowledge a complete fluke. You're just over analysing it and there's really no need - he simply stuck his foot out in the millisecond he had to think about it.

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      Yes, that. Very strange post indeed. We might as well start a thread about whether Stockdale deliberately passed the ball to Gouffran, so that he could get his save stats up.
