[QUOTE=Edmund Blackwater;2055083]Are you saying that wrongaldo has developed a way of cheating gravity?
Newton would be spinning in his grave, if he was dead, which he is.[/QUOTE
Nope!
Holding in the air for a split seconed is a technique that not many can do...Van Basten,McGrath...... ..
As I said the goal was a master class of this technique.

By the way if Newton was dead how could he be spinning in his grave?

I'm sorry.

But I'll have to ask you to take that back.

Name a 'keeper who hasn't made mistakes

You mean timing a jump?
You can't hang in the air, it defies gravity. Now wrongaldo is a cheat, and a very accomplished cheat at that, but you can't cheat the laws of gravity. Even wrongaldo can't do that.

Yes timing a jump is part of it..but it actaully is possible to hang in the air for that split seconed..there is a technique that many of the great players have mastered...but it is a detail of individual coaching and the persons ability to adopt this technique.These are the margins that make great players but I understand if you dont see or recognise these subtle differences in techniques.
