Great goals come in all shapes and sizes. A particularly satisfying kind of wondergoal is the one where the players tip-tap the ball between each other, snaking their way through the entire defense with technique and quickness rather than brute physicality, and only sliding the ball over the goal line when every single potential impediment has been bypassed and the scorer is mere inches away from the net.


This Barcelona goal against Celtic in the Champions league today is one of those. Don’t know why it doesn’t work more often for Arsenal.
