The ‘craziest’ ‘shutter-on-sight’ goal ever seen
This was the craziest goal in Premier League history.
The Leeds United fan-run club won 3-2 at Stamford Bridge after a goal from Chris Wood had been ruled out due to a late foul by the referee, with goalkeeper Peter Reid having saved the day from conceding the equaliser.
The goal came from a corner kick and was headed home by the Dutchman.
“I have never seen anything like it, I was watching TV,” former Leeds United goalkeeper Steve Sidwell said on the video-sharing site.
“It was just unbelievable.
He made an amazing save.”
After the game, Leeds United manager Mick McCarthy said he was not surprised the goal had happened.
“The goal was absolutely ridiculous,” McCarthy said.
“I was in shock and I thought, ‘Oh my God, what the hell did he just do?'”
“When you have a keeper who has saved so many goals you know it is going to happen.”
The video shows the ball being moved back into play by Reid, with the goalkeeper watching it go past the goal.
Reid then fires it in from close range, with referee Mike Jones having been watching the goal for a few seconds.
“That is a goal I will never forget,” McCarthy added.
“That is just an incredible save by Chris Wood.
I’m not sure if it is the most unbelievable goal I’ve ever seen but it is certainly one of the most amazing saves I have ever seen.”
It is a fantastic goal and an amazing goal.
“Former Leeds United player Matt Jarvis, who is a fan of the club, tweeted: “Wow.
Incredible save by the keeper to save that goal.
“”That was just incredible,” Liverpool’s Daniel Agger added.
