Albertzs long range shots

#11
Albertz is unmatched in my lifetime. What a player to have in your side, you could be toiling and struggling to find openings and sometimes it didn’t matter because he could just drive one in from 30 yards.

The way he hit free kicks was brilliant, you don’t see it now days, everyone goes for the Juninho technique but very few strike the way the way he could.

Ronald Koeman could whack a ball but wasn't a match for Der Hammer.

Didn't he keep injuring our Goalkeepers during training? I'm sure either Klos or Niemi ended up with metal screws in their hand after saving an Albertz shot.

A massively underrated one is his goal against Aberdeen in the Orange Cup Final. I think it kind of gets forgotten about because it bounced over the line then back out to be headed back in by Rod Wallace (and they had Robbie Winters in goal) but it was still an incredible strike. He was closer to the half way line than the goal I reckon.

When we got a free kick just outside the box and big Jorg stepped up I felt like it was a penalty to us, such was my confidence he would score.

Always remember a last minute free kick v Hearts at Ibrox when it was 0-0. Big Jorg stood over it and the whole stadium knew he would score it. And he did.

How I wish we could have him again. I thought Advocat's treatment of him was shocking.
Don’t think Dick appreciated the smoking and his lack of tracking back. Jorg admitted that on 9 in a row thing on the BBC he didn’t drink but after training under Smith the Players would hit the pub so he smoked instead, he said Smith would shout from the touch line track back, but he said he couldn’t cause the fags.

Cruyff did as well sure and he wasn't too bad,mate.

Opposition teams absolutely shat themselves (rightly so), when a freekick anywhere outside the box was awarded, and chants of ALBERTZ....ALBERTZ....ALBERTZ rose all around the stands.
Hairs in the back of your neck went up, awaiting the inevitable piledriver that was headed goal bound!
Very rare to see anyone take on a shot from anywhere close to distances the big man did with ease.

When he took penalties he very rarely skelped them. I remember one he took v hearts at tynecastle belted it down the middle it hit roussets leg and came out. The ball took its first bounce close to the halfway line. Roussets leg must have been red raw for days
