Liverpool fans are reflecting on a goal scored by Yossi Benayoun back in 2009 against Fulham in order to send the Reds to the top of the Premier League.
In a tense game that looked sure to end as a stalemate, Liverpool’s Israeli winger thumped a last-gasp strike home in order to clinch all three points and send his side to the top spot in the league (via The Guardian).
Benayoun spent three years with the Merseyside outfit after joining from West Ham in 2007 for a fee of £6.5million (via Transfermarkt). He went on to become a Liverpool centurion after making 134 appearances for the club, scoring 29 goals and assisting 19 in that time (also Transfermarkt).
Reds fans are remembering the day the winger pulled off his heroics at Craven Cottage and reminiscing over where they were and what they were doing at the time. One supporter has recalled watching the match and there being ‘limbs everywhere’ when Benayoun netted the winner, whilst another has said it was ‘total bedlam’.
Tea Time kick off …… Another one of them games where it was limbs everywhere.

I do. At a stag party on the island of Islay, off Scotland. Had just finished a distillery tour & went mental in local boozer when Yossi scored. I thought that was the game where we won the league.

I do, i was semi unconscious in a bar in Riga nursing the only massive hangover I’ve had in my entire life and still went absolutely mental when Yossi buried that one
