Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic's remarkable long-range goal against Saints last season has earned a place in the Guinness World Records book.

Begovic scored in bizarre fashion at the Britannia Stadium last November when a long kick forward - just 13 seconds after the match started - caught the wind and then bounced over opposite number Artur Boruc into the net.

The strike was measured at 91.9 metres (301ft 6in) and has now been registered as the 'longest goal scored in football' in the latest edition of the famous book of records.

Begovic told Stoke's website: ''I feel amazing to be honoured in this way and, as a goalkeeper, I didn't expect this to happen, not for this type of record anyway. I will take it though and enjoy it.

''I really do appreciate this award, and the certificate will certainly take pride of place on the wall at home.

''So thank you to everyone at Guinness World Records for presenting me with this wonderful award.''

I was sat right behind him when he hit that goal. It doesn't half knock the wind out of your sails when an ex-skunt scores from his own box after about 10 seconds.

Everyone was all "Oh ok" but then Jay-Rod popped up to equalise so it was alright again.

Sorry, but that's unlikely to be accepted; few people consider north of Leeds and south of Carlisle to be the world.
And those who do are unlikely to be literate, let alone own a book. Not worth the effort, I'm afraid.

I actually once beat the world record for standing long-jump, with my friend Susie. We were drunk, and holding hands at the time.

Of course it's also possible that I mis-understand the length of the old record, as I say, we were drunk, but one day I'm going to try and claim my just reward for this major triumph for British Athletics.

Maybe there should be a special Olympics for people who are drunk? That would make events like the Javelin & hammer throwing much more fun...

It was Peter Shilton when he pkayed for Leicester ....
Wikipedia says " Shilton settled into first team life thereafter, even managing to score a goal at The Dell against Southampton in October 1967 direct from a clearance at the opposite end of the pitch. The Southampton goalkeeper, Campbell Forsyth, misjudged Shilton's long punt upfield, which, instead of splashing harmlessly in the mud, spun off The Dell pitch and flew over Forsyth's head into the goal. "The Saints" lost the game 5–1"

A pity nobody was there to verify it. I believe you!!!
Actually, I see that it was originally accepted but later disallowed due to it being the "wrong kind of snow"!!! I must say, we get reduced to this level of posts, when there is no real news out there. Keep up the great humour until there is something else to focus on. On the other hand, there is a ridiculous story in the D Star today that Spuds have already unsettled us regarding them getting JayRod in January. They and the media will never get the message. Anyway, there is absolutely no need for anyone to worry. By then, we will be well above them in the table and Poch will be on his way out. JayRod will see how good things are under RonKo and will not want to leave.

It was 1967 so you would have been 26 ... probably a late developer then .. were you still wearing short trousers and did your Dad lift you over the turnstile .. a common practice back then ?

Memory is a funny thing, I'm one of the few who don't know where they were when Kennedy was shot, although I suspect I was probably in bed.

Three things happen with age .. memory loss... hair loss ... and memory loss .. it happens to us all in the end

It was Peter Shilton when he played for Leicester ....
Wikipedia says " Shilton settled into first team life thereafter, even managing to score a goal at The Dell against Southampton in October 1967 direct from a clearance at the opposite end of the pitch. The Southampton goalkeeper, Campbell Forsyth, misjudged Shilton's long punt upfield, which, instead of splashing harmlessly in the mud, spun off The Dell pitch and flew over Forsyth's head into the goal.

I think it was September 1967. We were playing Leicester. It was peeing down, and Shilton took a long punt, the ball hit the ground just in front of the penalty area, bounced straight up, got caught in the wind and flew over the goalkeeper's (Campbell Forsyth?) head and into the net. Bizarre goal.

That's the stadium on match days.
The stadium's shyte - they blast really loud ROCK out to away fans until a minute before kick off to stop any sort of atmosphere building up and the pies are absolutely terrible - but monkey forest is AMAZING. You know how in zoos they sort of segregate the animals from the people in some sort of species-based apartheid? Well here they all mingle freely and everyone has a great time.

(Until the novelty wears off after about 20 minutes, obvs.)

I also quite like Stafford services - it's architecturally bold.

And that's literally it for me and Stoke. The rest is an absolute cackhole.
