Motson and Geremi

"I've just remembered the last time I saw him score a free kick, for Cameroon against England just before the World Cup in 2002".

We're really just not on their radar, are we?

Do you know I thought EXACTLY the same thing when I heard that.

We are like the black hole of football.

re: Motson and Geremi

to be fair how many free kicks did he score for is all i can remember.

Against Chelski themselves !

And one against Liverpool at their place. And my recent-term memory is hopeless.

He scored a cream egg down at Anfield. An absolute pearler it was to put us 1 nil up. Seem to remember we hadnt scored an away goal for about 8 games and kept losing 1 nil. Typically Riise equalised

re: Motson and Geremi

Did anyone see Le Tissier on Soccer Saturday describe the freekick.

It went something along the lines of:

"Lampard, Drogba and Geremi are stood over the ball. It's not going to be Geremi taking it. Oh, it is Geremi. It's a goal!"

re: Motson and Geremi

made a refreshing change from lampards usual hit and hope down the middle shot that usually deflects of someones heel and goes in!

It was the same game where John Eustace made his triumphant debut.

re: Motson and Geremi

Geremi strikes a free kick better than Drogba or Lampard, he just rarely gets the chance.

He'd have scored a dozen or more like that for us if he'd stayed, instead of becoming a multi-millionaire Chelsea reserve.

re: Motson and Geremi

I remember seeing us hammer LEeds at their place a while back.

Geremi was on the ball around the edge of the box and I yelled shoot. He did and scored. Then looked at me and put his thumbs up. So i've technically got an assist for the Boro.

*parts of the above story may not be true*

re: Motson and Geremi

I heard Le Tissier, what a plank!

Like you said seems like Geremi's time at Boro never happened!

re: Motson and Geremi

I think he will get a lot more games for Chelsea this year. With the formation mthey are playing they need a right back who can get up and down fast - he is very athletic and shouldnt have a problem with this

BoroBiffa, did Juninho also score a spanking goal in the same Leeds game?

Ste_1986 Posted on 20/11 15:07
re: Motson and Geremi

bevo2005 yeh juninho did score a pearler and massimo got the other from a pen !

finished 3-2 boro with viduka with both of their goals

re: Motson and Geremi

I remeber that game now. Geremi scored a peach. Lobbed Robinson from outside the box if i recall. Great game

The_Boro_Biffa Posted on 20/11 15:14
re: Motson and Geremi

He certainly did Bevo. Quality match.

My sister was living in Leeds at the time too so I got to walk back with all their fans, they were gutted. Which made it even better.

re: Motson and Geremi

That actually rings a bell Bandito. Funny the things you remember.
