Is Cottee’s as good as Carroll’s magnificent strike?

As West Ham striker Andy Carroll flew through tha air to score with a stunning scissor kick on Saturday, it certainly jogged a memory for our West Ham Columinst and Hammers legend Tony Cottee.

Speaking to West Ham columnist Dave Evans this week, he said: “I scored one like that! Don’t laugh I really did, it was the best goal I scored for the Hammers and you can see it on Youtube.”

Further examination shows that it is true.

“Mark Ward crossed one over from the right and the only difference between mine and Andy’s goal was that I hit it with my right foot rather than my left,” said Cottee.

“Like him, I hit it flush and it flew into the net, though I think I was a bit nearer than Andy.”

The game was against Nottingham Forest back in 1987 at Upton Park, so see what you think? Is it as good as Carroll’s blockbuster?

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
