The Defense Rests

Well, there's your definitive evidence that Gomez was onside. Now, let the debate begin about whether Gomez got the final touch or not. Wouldn't it suck for Tino to win Goal of the Week only to have the goal credited to Gomez later in the week?


  1. It doesn't look like Gomez touches it from that last angle. The ball doesn't appear to change direction. And, considering the velocity of the strike, I find it hard to believe that he was able to make direct contact on the back of the ball without it changing direction.

  2. Ultimately the debate is moot--goal was allowed and we came away with a point. But if we're going to have a debate, I'm saying Gomez got a touch. That's what he told Goff, at least.
