Rams beat their title rivals at Maine Road with 2 excellent goals. The comment by Barry Davies "Look at his face..." was used in the opening credits to the tv show "They Think Its All Over".

The deciding match of the 1977 British Home Championship. If Scotland were to win at Wembley for the first time in 10 years, they would take the title outright. But it would be shared between England and Wales if the home team triumphed. What followed was a famous game and an even more famous celebration. John Motson is the commentator.

David Beckham's injury time free kick send's England into the world cup finals | David Beckham's goal taht shook the world
Classic from the 1989/90 season in which ref David Elleray was mic'd up for a game between Arsenal and Millwall. Featuring a great moment where Tony Adams calls Elleray a cheat and is told off like a naughty schoolboy. Wish I had the full show, this is from a show called "Football Years" aired on Sky around 2004
Well, I'd have sworn blind that David Beckham won the award this year, but it turns out he didn't. Let's hear it for Trevor Sinclair - the best goal ever that never gets shown on the telly these days. What an overhead kick! Better than Ibramhimovic's against England or Rooney's in the derby, in my opinion. Such a pity that it's in danger of being forgotten, yet Becks's halfway-line jobbie has been played virtually ad infinitum.
I'd have loved to have seen Juninho playing in a Premier League team higher up the table. Hard to believe he'd play in a side that got relegated. Also a surprise to see him score a header!

If like me you are a Saints fan in possession of a bus pass and a season ticket at a concessionary rate, the name Ron Davies will already conjure a nostalgic smile. Amongst my generation Ron Davies is simply a Saints Legend and in mine and many other's opinion, the best header of a football we've ever seen.
If however you are a younger Saints fan or just a fan of today's Premiership Football you might need a little more background so excuse me if I quote briefly from his online biography:
"During close season 1966 manager Ted Bates spent a club record PS55,000 to bring the 24 year old centre forward to Southampton as the club prepared to face their first season in the top flight. It soon became clear that the money had been well spent as Davies went on his goal scoring run of 12 goals in 10 consecutive league games and ended the 66-'67 season having scored 37 goals in 41 games to top the goal scoring charts. A big but amiable giant, Davies was useful on the ground, but it was in the air where he inflicted most damage.
With crosses from Terry Paine and John Sydenham floating in, Davies continued to dominate the aerial battles and he again headed (along with George Best) the scoring charts for 1967-68 season. His heading powers were awesome and when on 16 August 1969 he scored all four Saints goals in a match at Old Trafford, Matt Busby said that Davies was the best centre forward in Europe.
During his career with the club Davies scored 134 league goals placing him 8th on the club's list of all-time goalscorers. He won 29 caps for Wales, 23 of them whilst at Southampton and his total of 134 league goals included three 4-goal hauls, the most memorable being at Old Trafford in August 1969."
These highlights (Pt 1) and interview (Pt 2) are taken from ITV's "The Big Match" from that weekend in August 1969. Forget the discussion whether it was three goals or four for Ron...today there would be no dispute, definitely four. The headers shown here aren't the height of Ron's powers more "bread and butter" headers that were Ron's "stock in trade" If he were plying his trade today "Ron Davies -- Heading Masterclass" would be a top selling DVD...sadly this is about all that exists online.
