Dale Gordon's wonder goal

Recommended Posts

The Guardian has a bi-weekly football podcast, on which Paul MacInness, who is a Norwich City fan, often appears, and Melissa Rudd is one of the producers. This week they were discussing how the Juventus crowd had applauded Ronaldo''s overhead-kick goal, and Jonathan Wilson, tactics expert and author of Inverting The Pyramid, said the only time he had seen Sunderland fans (he is a Black Cats supporter)  likewise applauding an away goal was in the 1990-91 season, with Dale Gordon the scorer.We did win 2-1 at Roker Park that year, with second-half goals from Gordon and Sherwood, as Sunderland went down. Can posters remember anything about this goal? A 30-yard screamer? A dribble from one end to the other? A Goss-style volley at the end of a move (which got clapped at Elland Road)? I think I may have had a VHS tape of that season, but long thrown away,

I''m not sure if JW meant an opposition goal scored at one of Sunderland''s away games, or got the games mixed up, but Gordon and Sherwood both scored at Carrow Road versus Sunderland in the season in question - [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dn29KTAOmUA]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dn29KTAOmUA[/url].
