I thought it would be worthwhile for us to have a thread where we can post great goals/skills/saves as we see them. Technically, these could go in the "Today's Football" thread, but I rarely ever see the weekend's best highlights until one or two days after and it doesn't really make sense to post in that thread retroactively.

The inspiration for starting this is this beautiful Las Palmas team goal from the weekend:

Brilliant stuff. And yes, that is Kevin-Prince Boateng finishing off the move.

(If the mods would prefer this not be a separate thread, please move/delete it.)

If you didn't catch this one yesterday, it's definitely worth seeing. Bale v. Legia Warsaw.

Unreal to take that on the half-volley like that.

People seem to have different definitions of a half volley to me

If he was English his value would be 10-15.

No, you're right. Half-volley is immediately after it bounces.

That's just a volley, I guess.

That's a half-turn volley. :)

Half-volley to me is the one where you hit the ball right after the bounce, which generates an amazing amount of extra power.

Half volley to me is connecting with the ball as the ball hits the floor
It's the roll I way

Yeah bang on the same time
Volley is when the ball doesn't bounce

Not really the thread for it but wanted to share the best goal I've ever seen.
