One more thought on Cristiano Ronaldo’s disallowed goal v Chelsea

With the debate still raging (kind of) about Cristiano Ronaldo’s disallowed goal against Chelsea on Sunday, Richard Williams in The Guardian added his take on the trickery of Wayne Rooney and Ryan Giggs.

Williams: “The United trio were thus denied the rewards of the most impudent dead-ball routine since Willie Carr of Coventry City flicked a free-kick up with the ball between his heels for Ernie Hunt to volley home against Everton almost 40 years ago.”

The famous Ernie Hunt free-kick, which was included on the video 101 Great Goals that this website is named after, can be seen here.
