Leeds United: Fans drool over iconic goal from Gordon Strachan - Leeds United

Many Leeds United fans drooled over an iconic goal from club legend Gordon Strachan, after Tuesday marked 30 years to the day since his sensational strike past Martin Hodge in a Second Division clash at Elland Road. 

Strachan shocked the crowds in the Don Revie Stand plenty of times throughout his career with a number of eye-catching finishes, and it is his vital thundering effort that has got supporters gushing on social media this week.

Who was Leeds United's first £100k transfer signing?

The club’s official Twitter account shared footage of the Scotsman’s goal in the English second tier, a goal which proved to be the decisive factor in the tight race for promotion in the 1989/90 season. Taking a quick ball from Gary Speed on the edge of the box, the midfielder laced a powerful shot into the back of the next, sending the South Stand into scenes of utter jubilation (Yorkshire Post).

Strachan’s screamer prompted an incredible reaction from legendary commentator John Helm, who uttered the famous lines “have you ever seen a better goal? Have you ever seen one better timed?” Howard Wilkinson’s Whites went on to reach the First Division at the end of the season.

Given the responses so far, it seems many supporters will never forget the Scottish magician’s contributions on the pitch, with a large number of the LUFC faithful fondly remembering the “unforgettable” moment. One fan dubbed Strachan’s goal as “brilliant” while another added he was “simply outstanding.”
