    Been trying that shot in unsuccessfully in matches his whole life. Finally connected. Looks truly great...but hard to put all those blasts into the backstand out of mind.

    Excellent finish, nothing more.

    Isn't that one of the most beautiful aspects of the game?  You make it sound like we should not get excited about "excellent finishing".  The difference between good teams and great ones, is that the latter generally have excellent finishing, whereas the former don't.  I want excellent finishers playing for me, not against me, and they are a rare breed...

    I think his point, Kent, was about that particular play, not a comment on the state of football. It was an unassisted goal and Andros did not create the chance. He just was in the right place at the right time and the ball came to him. It was an excellent strike.
