Ronnie Radford a real blast from the past scored one off the most well known goals in fa cup history when he fired a screamer for Hereford Utd against newcastle back in the 1972 FA Cup.
In epic FA Cup 3rd Round Replay battle at Edgar Street Hereford’s first goal the equaliser was nicknamed the famous ‘Ronnie Radford Rocket’, was subsequently voted BBC Goal of the Season for 1971/72 and you can see why when you watch the video.
Real cup shocker this one as Ricky George got the winner for Hereford to give them a famous win over newcastle 2-1 oh the magic of the fa cup
Ok its a long time ago but you got to agree what a goal

Sir Alex Ferguson was angry to see his side go down to a team which lie 42 league places below them but Jermaine Beckford’s first half goal was enough to dump out the Premier League champions out of the fa cup.This was Fergie’s first Third Round defeat and will surely rank as one of the most miserable occasions of his illustrious career. United never got going in the first-half as the visitors made all the early running. In the 19th minute Beckford, who has been attracting considerable interest from Championship and Premier League clubs, got beyond the United defence to stroke his shot past Tomas Kuszack in the United goal.
Ferguson’s fixation with stoppage-time also led him to describe the referee Chris Foy’s decision to award five minutes at the end as “an insult to the game and the players out there”.
No striker has caused more problems at Old Trafford since Fernando Torres inspired Liverpool to a 4-1 victory last April.You can see how much it means to the fans and no lipreading is needed to understand this fan ( see second video below)

The greatest ever comeback in F.A Cup history? Manchester City down to ten men 3-0 down then comeback to win 3-4 In February 2004 has to be right up there as one of the best your ever see.The story began with Tottenham 3-0 up at half-time after Ledley King curled the opener, Robbie Keane slid in Stephen Carr’s pass and Christian Ziege fired in a free-kick.
City’s Joey Barton was sent off for a second booking but Sylvain Distin got a goal back and Paul Bosvelt gave them hope with a deflected shot.
Shaun Wright-Phillips levelled before Jonathan Macken headed a amazing late winner.
As kevin Kegan quoted after the game They’ll talk about this game long after we’ve all gone he was not wrong.
