Charlie Adam Chips the Keeper
There's not much Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could do, really, when he got caught like this from 65 yards away by Charlie Adam of Stoke City.
Charlie Adam gets his head up, sees the Chelsea keeper out, and from his own half rips the ball up and over the keepers head with his left foot. They're calling this the goal of the year.
Courtois did get a hand to it but that wasn't nearly enough - it even probably made it feel worse for him, knowing that he got a hand to the ball but couldn't stop it. At least Courtois, the best goalkeeper in the world many say, didn't hit his head on the post or end up caught in the net like a fish when he was falling backwards in desperation to keep the ball out of the goal. Goalkeepers across the world sympathize with Courtois but maybe also laugh just a little bit...and thank their lucky stars it wasn't them.
