Liam Brady v Tottenham Hotspur (A) 12-23-1978
On a day when Arsenal won 5-0 at White Hart Lane and Alan Sunderland scored a hat-trick, it’s hard to believe that any other single accomplishment could stand out. But leave it to the artistry of Liam Brady to do just that.
In the second half, Arsenal had launched an attack down the right-hand side but Spurs smuggled the ball away from their penalty area. Peter Taylor picked up possession 25 yards from his own goal and tried to turn away from Brady as he came charging in from midfield to make a challenge.
The Irishman won the ball cleanly and advanced to the edge of the box before looking up and striking across the ball with his left foot. In an era when the ball did not move nearly as much as today, Brady was still able to make his fierce shot curl from right to left and find the top corner.
The Spurs goalkeeper, Mark Kendall, didn't stand a chance.
Brady ran to the travelling Arsenal fans, who were packed behind that same goal, to receive their acclaim. This was Brady at his brilliant best.
It’s no wonder that he ended that season as the PFA Player of the Year.24 Nov 2010
