Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
How's about this for a gorgeous piece of purple prose from Barney Ronay in today's Guardian, describing Mo's first goal:

"It began with the most vital of all his many beautiful goals this season, one of those moments when the game seems to stop. Salah took the ball inside the penalty area found himself with a tiny pocket of space. With a shift of feet he looked up and produced with no real backlift a shot that did something extraordinary, the ball seeming to hang under the lights, generating a strange moment of hush as it arced under the bar before crashing down over the line."

Heheh. I agree with every word!
