The best Championship moment of 2011

No competition here. And fitting that it was provided by a Queen’s Park Rangers player given that they were this year’s champions in the Football League’s highest division. Fitting that it was provided by the best player in the Championship last season.

You know when someone scores a good goal or does a little trick and supporters of whoever they play for say “oh, if Messi did that then everyone would talk about it for years”. It’s not true. These goals or tricks are usually run of the mill things that happen all the time. How many times have you seen a player, even the likes of Messi, do this?

Not just a trick, not just someone belting the ball from 30 yards – a visionary assist for a match-winning goal. A watch-it-as-many-times-as-you-like, what-on-earth-makes-him-think-of-that-pass assist for a goal. A who-cares-what-he-does-for-the-rest-of-his-career, he’s-a-sodding-genius assist for a goal. A bloody brilliant assist for a goal.

All those times when you’ve wished your team had a bit more creativity. Imagine them having a player who can do something like this.

I’ve watched a lot of football this year. Last year. All the years previous to that since I can remember. Don’t remember anyone doing this. Imagine the hyperbole if someone did this in a Premier League game. I think Sky Sports would actually melt. It’s ridiculously good.

Anyway, without further ado…


Good, eh?

The Seventy Two
The Seventy Two published an outstanding series of articles about the Football League between 2010-12 and was the brainchild of Leicester City fan, David Bevan. As well as collaborating with The Two Unfortunates on the Football League Blog Network and a mammoth 2011-12 season preview, the site featured a host of leading bloggers and David was rewarded with a nomination in the 2011 Football Supporters’ Federation awards. Latterly, he was joined as co-editor by Joe Harrison and TTU is happy to present this archive of the site’s output.
