If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Gerard’s cup final goal not included!



Man Utd’s equaliser in the Payet Old Trafford game? Quarters of the cup, last season at Boleyn… could the cup have been ours?


Frankfurts in Europa?


Croatias in World Cup Semi?


Or is there a random one that affected you more than it should?

Gerd Muller in ET at the 1970 World Cup, England led 2-0 before being pegged back by zee Germans who won 3-2, great comeback but that Muller goal sank the English, if he hadn't of scored you never know???

Or

Not a goal erased but if England had scored against Spain in 1982 they would have gone through to the S/F in that 3-nation group of death, again Zee Germans piped England.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Agree with the below, a couple of devastating England endings, I mean real devastation. Must admit, I can't be sure I've ever felt as bad after a West Ham defeat, then again 2006 and the FA Cup pens loss to Arsenal in 98.

It's not the same with England now though, was gutted when we lost to Italy on pens and last year to France, but it didn't feel nowhere near as bad as the earlier stuff.

That’s a great shout.

Of all the tournaments England came close to winning, I think that’s the one I would have enjoyed the most. A great summer.


And Baddiel & Skinner wouldn’t have remade that song a dozen times

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Bending the rules massively with this one but i'd be interested to see what would have happened had Sol Campbell's (completely legit) goal NOT been erased vs Argentina in 1998. Holland probably would have done us in the quarters but you never know.

Other than that i'd probably go for Stefan Kuntz in Euro 96.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Sussed it - the correct answer is Ronnie Whelan’s 83rd minute equaliser at Upton Park in 85/86.

Gives them 87 points at the end of the season, and us 86 going into the Everton game.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
So as the OP said not Gerrards goal, for me it has to be the German/Shilton/Parker farcical goal In World Cup Italia 90.
We would have won that tournament and it would have been one of the biggest feel good factors this country had ever seen. Imagine looking back with Nessun Dorma playing having won it.
Gazza life may have been different. I've never forgotten the disappointment of that night.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
So many people saying Gerrard despite the OP said 'excluding Gerrard'.

With that being the case, the answer is obviously Dalglish at in the Bridge in 86.

Are you talking about his goal against Middlesborough on the last day of the season? That's the one I was thinking of.

I was flicking between that game and ours on Sky.

None of the replays seem to show it, but I'm sure he missed the free kick first time so they let him take it again. Which is kind of cheating.

We still needed to win even if they'd drawn, which we didn't. But they were 2-0 up after 20 minutes and I'm sure that must have filtered through to us and affected our performance. I think without that goal we might have stayed up.

Jay-Jay Okocha goal that got us relegated in 2003 with 42 points!

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Excluding Gerrard’s in the 2006 FA Cup Final, the answer is still Gerrard’s in the 2006 FA Cup Final.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
One in a penalty competition at a fair in Crediton, circa 1979.

About 100 people of all ages, shapes, sizes took part and if you missed your penalty, you were out, simple as that.

I got into the final, aged 12 against some bloke, I hit the post, he scored.

That one…

Was that the game where George Eastham single handedly destroyed us?

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
How about erasing John Ritchie's winner for Stoke in the 2nd leg of the 1971-72 League Cup semi final?

We'd have then won 2-1 on aggregate and gone through to the Final against Chelsea.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Idiots m. You’re all wrong.

The answer is Steven Gerrard’s in 2006 cup final

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Talking about 85/86 I remember Alan Dickens in a book saying that one thing they all forgot about at that last game at Everton due to being so down was the fact that if West Ham had won the game they would have played at Wembley at the start of the next season in the Charity Shield because Liverpool had done the double. He said a few of those in that team had never played at Wembley.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
The last season at Upton Park, there were a string of consecutive draws where we were winning, some with last minute equalisers) at a time when we were seriously threatening a top 4 finish, in the same season that Leicester ended up winning the league.

Chelsea 2-2 West Ham (89th minute Chelsea equaliser)
West Ham 2-2 Palace (75th minute Palace equaliser)
West Ham 3-3 Arsenal (70th minute Arsenal eqauliser)
Leicester 2-2 West Ham (90th minute Leicester eqauliser)

I wonder if we could wipe the Chelsea equaliser, could it have given us the confidence to hold the lead in the other games?

We ended up losing badly at home to Swansea later in the season which really killed our chances but this has the potential to be our greatest Premier League season considering the way things were going.

Re: If you could erase one goal from football history what would it be?
Not Gerrards goal you say? Ok makes sense.

Djibril Cissé's goal in the 2006 FA Cup final meaning that Gerrard scored a wonder goal as a mere consolation.
