Off the stanchions at Wembley - Steve Heighway
Liverpool celebrated Bill Shankly's last game in charge - the 1974 FA Cup final - by undressing the Newcastle defence. Steve Heighway fired in Liverpool's second goal off the stanchion.
Is this the only goal to have ever been soured aesthetically by Wembley's on-field architecture?
Wouldn't the aesthetics of this goal have improved out of sight if the goalnets had retained the ball?
Check out the somewhat similar finish to the goal below.
What do you think?
