“Macdonald… good try… oh what a goal!… what a brilliant goal!”

As always, the Champions League has thrown up some wonderful goals. Probably the strike of Tuesday night was Giorgos Karagounis’ rocket against Werder Bremen.

My esteemed colleague, Arthur, points out on the goals page of this website that it bears resemblance to a Steve McManaman goal for Liverpool at Highbury.

But, it has also been brought to our attention (cheers Russ), that it is also similar to a goal scored by Malcolm Macdonald for Newcastle, in an FA Cup fifth round tie in 1976, which also happens to be on the 101 Great Goals video that this website is named after.
