Usually when I’m looking for clips and topics to discuss, I try and make sure they’re recent and relevant to the current LOTG. ┬áThis clip isn’t that recent, but it sure is relevant and worth talking about.

In 2003, Thierry Henry (while playing for Arsenal) scored a goal against Blackburn which was disallowed…and CORRECTLY at that!

The situation:

Blackburn goalkeeper Brad Friedel was about to punt the ball upfield when, quick as a flash, Henry nicked the ball away from him as the ball just left his hands, and tapped it into the back of the net.
