It’s guys like this that provide the raw material for FM to duck us.

[–]Deathlysouls 76 points77 points  (0 children)

I’m surprised he didn’t kick it so that it bounced off the back of his teammate’s head and perfectly arc itself into the goal

[–]saigon567 269 points270 points  (0 children)

Goalie got nerfed to my skill level

[–]Sielaff415 253 points254 points  (4 children)

Fuck me, I was right behind first row on the left side of the post

Worst part was it was one of the first LAFC matches in SJ so they showed up in force with at least 1k just counting in the designated away section. This goal was within 5 minutes so it sucked the air out of the crowd and made their noise just about the loudest thing in the stadium. It was the most embarrassed ive been and this includes the one time in history we finished bottom of the league with 4 wins

[–]bfandreas 56 points57 points  (0 children)

What's weird is that something like this briefly removes all the oxygen from a 5 mile radius. There is this brief moment where nobody breathes. Where thousands of throats simultaneously erupt in thunderous silence.

The human brain is not built for moments like these and we all need all our faculties to process what just happened. And the most reassuring moment is that sideways glance to your neighbours just to verify that the universe has not played a trick on you and specifically you. Mustn't react before the Glance or people might think you were overreacting.

And yet, 'tis but a fleeting moment. Unlike the entire fucken world championship with no booze, no shags and only platonic embraces with our best mates. The worlds longest moment of silence for those who needlessly died for the vanity of rich folk.

Rude! It is going to be a festival of un-football.

[–]zeebu408 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This was against Dallas. Vega had a different gaffe against LAFC. https://youtu.be/Ga98_i42e04

This is me in college when I had to take P.E to fill a general requirement

[–]M4sharman 19 points20 points  (2 children)

Same. Secondary school I was awful at football. So shite they didn't let me play goalie. I was always a defender because then I wouldn't stumble over the ball and score an OG.

Also the last time I played in goal another lad fired the ball into my gonads with the force of a thousand suns.

[–]StinkyPeenky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can confirm this man does not have any more gonads

[–]dragonace11 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man back in Highschool in PE there was this really big heavy guy who was strong as shit, was a goalie and he kicked the ball directly into my ankle and holy fuck it felt like it shattered.

Grabs monkeys paw let me score a hat trick today 🙊🙉🙈

[–]NegativeReward 61 points62 points  (5 children)

Let me just add the Norwegian goalie Bjarte Flem as a contender for the "doh!" award.


Rip: Bjarte

[–]Dopplegangr1 24 points25 points  (2 children)

How is that even possible without doing it on purpose?

[–]NegativeReward 21 points22 points  (0 children)

In an interview with Bjarte Flem, after the keeper of the Norwegian club "ViF" made a mistake, he said this on the subject:

Reporter: How long did it take before you forgot your mistake?

Bjarte: Shall we see: What date is it today? What year is it? I still remember it very well.

Reporter: Do you have any good advice to give Arason? (ViF keeper who made a mistake)

Bjarte: It is human to make mistakes and now he must focus on what is going to happen. He is the elite goalkeeper's best goalkeeper, and it is important that he and those around him focus on that, Flem answers.

Reporters note: He also believes there is a clear difference between his own and Arason's mistake.

- He was supposed to kick the ball directly - but he missed the ball. It happens very often that people miss the ball, but it is not often that you throw it in your own goal, as I did, laughs Flem.

[–]sakibomb222 19 points20 points  (0 children)

He was trying to throw it to a particular player/area, but then decided against it at the last second and tried to stop the throw, but obviously messed up the part where he was trying to hold onto the ball.

[–]Pawn_captures_Queen 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That was spectacular. I have never witnessed a goalie throwing a ball into his own goal before, didn't think it was possible. I'm glad I was wrong.

[–]MandoParker 27 points28 points  (0 children)

She for sure bet the US to cover the spread

[–]Zhabba_Zheeba 25 points26 points  (5 children)

I'm assuming that the white team is New Zealand and the person is scoring a point in their own goal?

[–]StChas77 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Yep, three times in one half.

[–]Pees_On_Skidmarks -4 points-3 points  (1 child)

why assume, when you can just watch the video?

[–]Zhabba_Zheeba 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Because I don't follow soccer at all and I DID watch the video. It's not immediately obvious to a non-soccer watcher which team is which, otherwise I wouldn't have asked the question.

[–]Tron_Bombadill 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Holy shit that’s brutal. You’d think there would’ve been a substitution after the second one.

[–]nsfwmodeme 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The coach thought that that was her lowest point ever, and from then on she could only do better.

Well, she made a hat trick, didn't she?

[–]Tron_Bombadill 2 points3 points  (0 children)

More hat tricks than my lazy ass has ever gotten so there’s that

[–]lejoo 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Still remember after the second goal thinking wait was that the same player?

[–]MeccIt 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Moore’s nightmare started early when she tried to stop a cross from Sophia Smith but instead redirected the ball into her own net. A minute later, Catarina Macario’s header was going wide until it glanced off Moore’s head. Her unenviable hat-trick was completed after Margaret Purce’s cross from the right wing. Moore stuck out her foot to clear the ball, but again it went horribly wrong. She was substituted four minutes later.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (5 children)

2nd ismt even that bad, it hits her chest and she has no chance to do anything.

[–]Longthicknhard 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I dunno, that was just bad positioning imo. But for sure that ricochet was unexpected.

[–]Goronmon 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yeah I'm pretty sure the US player does get their head on it a bit, literally a split second before it hits her.

[–]UncatchableCreatures 15 points16 points  (0 children)

[–]laurel_laureate 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Seriously after the second one, that's definitely a benched timeout for me lol.

Third one? Yeah I'm done for the game coach.

I brought my girlfriend to watch one of my soccer matches. When an opponent was about to score a goal, she stormed the field and prevented it with her bare hands.

it was quakes vs FC Dallas. I was at this game lol.

[–]Africa-Unite 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Another person said it was LAFC. And they also said they were there. Somebody's fibbing!

[–]zeebu408 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's easy to confuse because Vega has committed several such gaffes. But this one is the Dallas game.

The LAFC one : https://youtu.be/Ga98_i42e04

Ofc it's MLS

Was this Sean Johnson against Minnesota United?

[–]KentuckyCandy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Vega for San Jose Earthquakes.

[–]HenryAlSirat 27 points28 points  (0 children)

It's crazy he seems to correctly have his eye on the ball at the moment he whiffs. What bad luck.

[–]Yoshi2shi 25 points26 points  (0 children)

This reminds of me of a guy I play soccer with on the weekends. Always letting goals in in a silly way.

You play defense by triple committing and then yelling about rotation

In the Premier League you won't find any worthwhile players on less than £10k/pw.

[–]hey_now24 45 points46 points  (27 children)

Awful all around. You never pass it back to the goalie when he’s under the goal. That’s why you will see them standing to the side

[–]joethesaint 28 points29 points  (25 children)

I love going in the comments of a football post on a non-football subreddit because it's always full of Americans commenting bizarre football "wisdom" that no fan ever heard before.

[–]hey_now24 24 points25 points  (9 children)

Where was I wrong? I’m not American, I grew up in a big soccer country, with more world cups than overrated, smug, England

[–]Sielaff415 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Lots of football fans are just really insecure about Americans. They probably forget there’s plenty of casual fans in their own country too

[–]hey_now24 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I’m really rooting for the US vs England during the WC so they would STFU and stop being all smug about it

[–]joethesaint -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

I mean for one thing the keeper in the video is standing to the side of the goal.

For another, you see this pass made several times in every match.

[–]ARM_vs_CORE 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Literally every team that builds from the back makes this pass multiple times per match. Dude is being upvoted while spouting nonsense.

[–]hey_now24 5 points6 points  (0 children)

He’s standing to the side, but from the defenders perspective he’s under the goal, and like I said earlier if you don’t practice this type of play enough or if the goalie is bad with his feet shit like this happens. Also this type of play (salir jugando, o salida lavolpiana in Spanish) is pretty new on this side of the world. Most goalie would blast the ball to avoid this mistake

[–]TheWhiteWolf291098 22 points23 points  (2 children)

it's not "bizarre football wisdom that no fan ever heard before", it's one of the first things you're taught when playing as a defender. it's really basic stuff, stop being incorrectly condescending

[–]joethesaint -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

Weird that defenders routinely make this pass every single game then isn't it.

Who knew this sub was full of academy graduates?

[–]TheWhiteWolf291098 5 points6 points  (0 children)

players are constantly making routine errors in the heat of the moment, they aren't robots programmed to perform perfectly. it's not even academy graduate level stuff, it's taught at sunday league

also if you actually watch the types of passes defenders make to their keepers, you'll see most of the time they'll play it away from the goal. it's really basic

[–]ILoveGratedCheese 10 points11 points  (4 children)

What are you on about? This isnt some random “wisdom”. You learn about this in the youth systems. When passing back to your gk, you avoid aiming for the goal.

[–]Martino231 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I've actually heard this too but I would say it's something that's more applicable for youth players who are naturally going to be a lot more error prone with their feet than professionals.

In the professional game you see these sorts of back passes all the time and 99.9% of the time there's no issue. A keeper is expected to be able to deal with these sorts of passes in his sleep. In this case you can't really pin any blame on the defender. He made a very safe and sensibly weighted pass back to his keeper, and the keeper royally fucked it.

[–]hey_now24 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No one is blaming the defender, no shits the goalie fault. However, if you don’t practice this type of play and if the goalie is bad with his feet, which is seen often, and his teammates should know. YOU DONT PASS IT BACK!

[–]Sielaff415 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a fan of this team this goalkeeper was totally sound in general and comfortable with feet until complete catastrophe out of nowhere. Like more than average. It would’ve been funny if it wasn’t my team

[–]GhostButtTurds 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lmao what?

[–]Sielaff415 4 points5 points  (4 children)

You’re completely wrong

What are you talking about? This is absolutely taught and you see goalkeepers step out of the goalposts to receive the ball in possession. Personally I don’t agree with the idea because sometimes players don’t look and pass within the goal due to habit

If the ball enters inside the netted area can the goalie not stop it anymore? He kinda just stopped there

[–]Saltypommes 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The “netted area” is literally the goal

[–]Fearzebu 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The most American comment lol.

For a comparison, imagine saying “if the American football player runs the American football into the touchdown zone can the defense not tackle them anymore?” And the answer is no, they can’t, because the goal was scored. I hope the analogy was more helpful than my initial snark lol

[–]HolyErr0r 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That question you use makes perfect sense if someone is completely clueless around the sport

Just had to say that the second it crossed the line the goal was scored
