Fights for the ball in the pissing rain, goes past three, scores the best goal anyone will see this year from his own half, then taunts the home fans with an Anderlecht 'A', then offers a fucking squa

The hold up play was magnificent by Roofe - but that finish was stunning - one of the best ever - he started just outside his own box! Wonderful!

I got a notification on my phone that Roofe had scored, scowled at the TV seeing Roofe picked up the ball and thought how the fuck does he score here. He can't surely take on the full team and score.

After 20 seconds, all I could do is smile, doff my cap and think that's how he scored from there.

Pele couldn't score from his half, in the centre of the pitch with no fucker near him on a bone dry pitch in Mexico.

Roofe wins the ball not once but twice (with a wee back heel nutmeg thrown in), rides a challenge, outflanks a player, then skelps it at pace as soon as he gets the opportunity whilst heading towards the touchline and away from the centre of the goal.  

The fact it was a water logged pitch and absolutely pissing down makes it even more surreal....

It gets better each time. 

Taking out players before shooting and on a pitch that was a water park. 

Just outstanding

I thought the game was going to get stopped at one point it was just one giant puddle, we coped with it better than them and I thought they were easily one of the best teams we have faced.

Was a tremendous result.

Switch the notifications off man!

During the game these days I switch off notifications and put my phone to silent incase anyones link is quicker than mine. Had more than a few goals ruined as people have messaged before I've seen it.

Glad I did it last night as trust me, watching that live and not knowing what was about to happen was 100x more exhilarating than knowing what was coming.

I think part of the reason that it was so amazing was it looked highly unlikely anything would come from him having the ball in the first place, never mind getting a goal from it.

He was surrounded by 3 players, just back from injury, not been hugely impressive for us since he signed, playing in awful weather conditions, no help round about him, and odds on to lose the ball.

I think most of us were annoyed at the management team for bringing on an injury prone player, just recovering in such awful footballing conditions.

Scuds the three players round about him then BANG :lol:

Confidence is key for a striker, especially returning from a length injury. That, and having the fans on board.

He should be flying now.

Cannot wait to see how he performs going forward.

Sorry need to correct you as he took it by 4 players plus one of those same players twice, he then done the keeper (another player) so technically he done 5 in total 😂😂
