December 21st: Celebrating Golden Goals from Yesteryear

It's the In The Top One advent calendar.

We know all about the shouting, fist pumping and thunderbolt free kicks when it comes to STUART PEARCE but let it not be forgotten that he was also a damned fine footballer too.

This goal - although only 9th in a top ten list of his finest - is a fine one, epitomising his marauding forward runs from left back and composure in front of goal. From left back, he plays a ball to Scot Gemmill and then he's off. Neat interchange between Pearce and his mate Nigel results in him bearing down on the City goal. The finish is that of a seasoned striker.

Note how the ball never ever leaves the floor in the build up to this goal. Superb stuff.
