This is the most memorable – and definitely the sneakiest – goal of the season
Spare a thought for Notts County goalkeeper Ryan Schofield who was looking forward to keeping a clean sheet against Carlisle when this happened (viewers of a sensitive disposition, look away now).

At least the brainfart didn’t cost his team the game, as the – Google, Google – League two strugglers still beat Carlisle United 3-1.
Fans didn’t know whether to applaud or boo the goal – mostly metaphorically, we hasten to add – and here’s a flavour of what people said about it.
🤣 UNLUCKEEEEEEE https://t.co/QeT0xVO73V

This is why, in the old days a goalie would just volley it out of his hands. Who’s idea was this rolling it forward shit anyway?

Wow. I haven't seen this trick in about 20 years. Fair play 😂 https://t.co/hrKtMgiU7v

And yet none of his defenders or anybody for that matter who could see the striker warned him that he was there.

Ungentlemanly conduct booking an no goal

There is no such offence as ungentlemanly conduct. Was removed from the laws at least 10 years ago
