Title: Special Goal
Post by: Cuttyblue on August 13, 2017, 04:32:42 AM
Yeah, that was enjoyable.

First match for me at Goodison was 2003, Everton were pretty pedestrian, Birmingham was the opposition and had a few looks at goal - maybe they deserved a draw.  The difference from a 0-0 was the eventual goal scorer, the spark, Wayne Rooney.  Just like today.

I bought the kit top at the store that day, the '03 "Kejian" shirt.  Wore that today while my son and I celebrated the goal.

Rooney will not replace Lukaku's goals, but for me, I'm enjoying the romance of it all. Hope you feel the same.

Special start to the season.

his header was very, very clever and the type of header he is known for producing.  a really well taken goal to finish off a lovely move, especially Sandro selling his defender completely and buying DCL the space for the cross.

hopefully it settles Wayne as well as he won't be looking for the first goal and worrying about it not coming

Like how he starting surging to the penalty spot before Sandro turned and spread the ball out to DCL.  He knows the game, he knew where to be.

*edit*  But won't disagree SP, this was a very average team performance, no indication that we can make it beyond 7th yet.

But the Rooney winner is the "heart, not head" stuff that keeps us so enthralled to EFC.

Really is nothing better than a top class headed goal and that was one of the best you'll see. Only a player of Rooney calibure would be capable of that.

Reminded me of Messi in the champions league final.

You make it sounds like he do this all the time and this was only just very very clever. ..???

I think it was one of the best headers there is, it was brilliant.  Maybe it's because I don't watch too many Manchester United games....

Great cross from DCL, immediately you can tell Stoke defenders are not going to be there.  In a split second, you see there is a runner in blue that is tracking the ball perfectly... then I realized it was Rooney; all he had to do was cushion and direct it.  Just a few seconds can really make your weekend!  :woohoo:

He went through a mad spell at united a few years back where he scored a header every week.

Went mental myself, such a perfect premier league debut for him.

You tell me, as I said I didn't watch much of their games.

I can't really believe there are people in here who are trying to undermine Rooney's goal and say it is very ordinary and common for him.  And because of that he is not to be given too much credit for his goal.

edit (you are too clever for my mind)

My God.

Watching that Rooney interview with Lineker, I never realised just how dreamy Wayne's eyes were 😃

He looks lean, angelic, almost reborn to the lad of 2002-2004.

I love him  :hug:

Brilliant today that. He will run games for us this season, if Koeman plays a system to suit Rooney as our 10.

Has it been mentioned that he won the ball back to start the whole move?

There's no contradiction here, Cahill used to produce brilliant headers all the time for example. All it means is that he's very good at them.

And took another simple, but nice pass to keep advancing forward after that.

Aside from the goal, he was a leader today.   Don't think the other players aren't watching.

Rooneys management of the game today was nothing short of World class, he demonstrated the reasons why Koeman wanted him in the first place, an experienced pro who has won everything in the domestic game who will bring goals, assists, experience, hold up play, movement off the ball, ability to switch the play, knowing when to slow the play the ball and most importantly a leader of men and boys. Good on you Koeman top marks for this one. Did I mention he could probably play goalie as well.

Great run from Klassen to the near post to free up space.

A stark contrast from last year where only Lukaku was ever in the box.

Have to say it was a great feeling seeing him score more than anyone.

Yes that was Klassens best contribution in the game, I thought he struggled otherwise but hopefully he'll be up to speed sooner rather than later

May be the first indication is that we won yesterday .Many times we would have stuttered against Stoke

Shearer and Wright, when they discussed the match, 'said he started off the move' but if you rewind the match, he started the move even earlier (in our own half).. he ran with it.,. passed it to Gana,who in turn passed it back to rooney (that is where the motd analysts picked up from) who passed it back to Gana, who gave it back to Rooney, who played it to Sandro, pass out to DCL and  know the rest,


surprised the MOTD staff, didnt show the move from the beginning (when they where talking about it)
