An ideal one would be if one of our players dived just outside the box to get their keeper sent off and they have to play an outfield player in goal.I know people like big wins but it winds up the opposition much more if you win by a dodgy penalty or an offside goal. If you’re winning four zip the opposition fans have already gone home but a 90th minute own goal and you can really enjoy giving them the ****er sign. That is the true spirit of football. One of my favourite ever goals was Freddy’s late penalty against Northampton in the 95 home play off semi. Nicolau with the dive, what a legend. Or Mike Marsh’s last minute thunderbolt against Ipswich. They were so gutted as their play off dreams were dashed. What I’m saying is a 4-0 is nice but tomorrow I’d rather Murphy hand balled a goal in the 94th minute in front of their own fans to send us through.
The resulting free kick would deflect off the wall and pea roll into the goal as the stand in keeper moved the wrong way and couldn't dive well enough to stop the shot.
Especially if all this happens in injury time right in front of their fans
