That IS the goal of the year.
best goal i've seen this year. *#*#*#*#in awesome. that came out of no where. even shep thought so. WOW! go woly
Unbelievable. I didn't even yell when he scored; I was just stunned.
same here. simply amazed, great ball from guevara.
i actually started laughing after a while.
goal of the year? heck, that might have been the best goal I've ever seen in MLS. simply stunning.
That's when you know a goal is good.
What an absolutely incredible strike! In a very important game no less.
Important goal, but I wouldn't call it goal of the year. The ugliness of the game just made the goal look much better.
Quite similar to a goal scored by Batistuta four or five years ago for Fiorentina.
Woly is the new Gio/Ole Gunnar
Another great thing about it: Clint was one of the guys congratulating him the most. No sour grapes from the guy Woly was replacing in the game. Good signs for the end of season stretch for the Metro.
Woly said in his post game that Mathis actually had no problem coming out and that was just tired and thought Woly could do better.
OK, I said this before and got slagged for it a little bit. Been following Wolyniec since Silver Lake, then Fordham, then the Brooklyn Knights, then MLS. He may not be your all around world beater but he is a clinical offensive player. He was a math or engineering major I belive and he just sees the field in dimensions that others do not. And he is from a great soccer family on Staten Island.
I figured Woly was coming on because our strategy for OT was to hoof long balls up at our forwards, bypassing the midfield more or less. Yeah, Clint's a forward, but he does a lot more dropping back into midfield than Wolyniec (or Juskowiak, apparently), and his little spins, turns and touches through midfield were going to be redundant.
I'm not nearly so worried about his fitness anymore, by the way.
Damn it, I want to see that goal so bad now. Too bad it probably won't be up until Monday or Tuesday on mlsnet.com. =x
If someone watching didn't know what to do afterwards but laugh it must be good.
It is unbelievable when I say a great coaching move taking out our supposed National Team striker and replacing him with Woly and Woly shines again. Clint had a real bad case of Fiaria tonight seemingly missing at least 4 gimmes and looking fatigued before the game even started.
If there is an award for most improved MLS player it should go to Woly.
Ninety something minutes of nothing and then SMASH . A great goal. Three points is three points.
Clint was not sharp around the net tonight, but the "fatigued" comment is way off base. Clint busted his butt tonight and was moving and hustling for the entire match.
Wolny's goal was a thing of beauty. That would be a highlight goal anywhere on the planet.
I'm really liking the MLS overtime shenanigan now.
HAIL,Hail 2 Wolly
and Kudos to Bob once again ...
Anyone know for sure where that "Wolny" contingent in the upper deck came from? I heard they were the kids from some High School team that he coaches. I give those kids credit, they stood and shouted for Wolny all game long -- even though he wasn't in for 95 minutes of it. What a treat for them to have witnessed this finish. Hey, a new generation of ESCers may be in the making.
That goal was a beauty.A combination of skill and power. I'd say it's the number 2 goal of the year behind Carlos Ruiz's bicycle against the Crew this year.
In case you missed it - good article on the team Wolyniec coaches.
If Walker is the King of East Rutherford I'm nominating Woly for the position of Prince of Seacaucus.
He's certainly deserving of consideration for most improved player in MLS this year.
Very strange. The Woly fan club shows up at the game, starts the "We Want Wolyniec" chant 5 minutes into the game and he comes in and scores the game winner.
It really doesn't get any better than that.
