Grateful to the Guardian for this link to 20 of the finest weird goals in the history of football. It really does build from a selection of minor, classic own-goals and in-offs and that San Marino goal in 8 seconds (hail Stuart Pearce) to a fantastic finale of a goal scored direct from the kick-off whilst a goalie is celebrating having scored, a defender who belts the ball into his own head and into the goal and finally a saved penalty but the defender following in to absolutely bury the rebound. And was that Micky Evans having a laugh by taking a free-kick quickly? I rather think it was, as Danny Baker might say. Pumping death-metal soundtrack best left mute.
