Glentoran – goal of the year….

Matty Burrows’ wonder goal against Portadown has been shortlisted for the Ballon d’Or-Puskas award. No wonder – it’s astonishing.
……and this one wasn’t bad…

    Great for Glentoran, great for Burrows and great PR for the Irish league.

    Get voting when FIFA open up the competition.

    …must say, I hadnt seen the 2nd one. Its better than the world famous one.

  • Alan Maskey

    Two beauties ok. Must have practiced long and hard or been very lucky.

  • Rory Carr

    God! We sure could have done with him at the Emirates this afternoon.

    Never mind, at least Liverpool gave the Blues the blues.

  • lamhdearg

    Linfield fan. i and all i can convince will vote for him. Thank you Dewi.

  • Alan Maskey

    So how does on vote?

  • Rory Carr

    Commonly by placing an “X” against the name of one’s preferred candidate.

  • Alan Maskey

    You are not being very helpful here. Where and when does one put one’s X. Also, is it a reserved sin to vote for Glentoran?

    On the FIFA Website Alan – but not open to vote yet.

  • Alan Maskey

    Ok, in keeping with certain tribal practices, should we vote early and vote often?
    This great goal aside, I guess there is a lot of that. Not many Spurs fans will vote Arsenal for example or, to localise it, not many Cardiff fans will vote Swindon. Glad you survived Armageddon, Dewi.

  • Dewi

    Swansea deserved it – very impressive…

  • Nordie Northsider

    Great goal – well worth a vote. I would switch my allegiance from Bohs to Glentoran if Bohemians wasn’t such a cool name.

    “I would switch my allegiance from Bohs to Glentoran if Bohemians wasn’t such a cool name.”

    …yeah – my favourite – “Locomotive Llanberis”

  • Nordie Northsider

    If I lived in Lisburn I’d found a team called ‘Sporting Lisburn’.

  • Dewi

    Red Star Belfast?

  • Dewi

    Dynamo Derry?

  • Alan Maskey

    Borussia Ballymena, A.C.Linfield , Real Crusaders , Athletico Athlone, Glenavon Sant Germaine,

  • Mainland Ulsterman

    I am a Glentoran fan but that is one of the best goals I have ever seen. Wow! Only Mark Hughes for Wales against Spain in 83 beats that.

  • Mike

    As another Glentoran fan I’m chuffed that Matty’s goal is getting the recognition that it deserves…the lad has quite an eye for goal!

  • lamhdearg

    matty will get my vote as i posted before. he may be the only glentoran player to win something this season.
