West Ham in wonder goal shocker
Enner Valencia's wonder goal seems to getting faster and faster. Yesterdays Evening Standard timed it at 70mph and at this rate it will be soon brewing the speed of sound and reaching warp factor ten. Still, it's not often the words West Ham and wonder goal are connected in the same sentence. Still can't figure out how he managed to hit it like that with so little backlift. We have to hope Valencia gets a couple of tap-ins now to prove that he can score scrappy goals too, but his strength in the air at Hull was encouraging and he's scored possibly the best goal by a West Ham player since Di Canio produced that volley against Wimbledon.
