I’m excited to doing more scoring work in the future.
I’ve never been in this position where I’ve had to take an ‘X’ amount of shots, where I’ve had to focus on scoring. All of my career has been being a defensive player just running the floor.
You cannot only be remembered by scoring goals; you want to be remembered by winning trophies.
I played in different positions as a kid, and it helped me learn different parts of the game, but I found that I was always scoring goals, and that continued as I got older. I’ve always enjoyed scoring, and it seemed to come naturally. Fortunately, that has carried on into my professional career.
I had lost my grandfather just a month-and-a-half before I made my debut. I was suddenly scoring runs and getting into the fray. It was a very trying period for me. I was happy as well as sad.
I’m not silly enough to say I don’t take note of what other strikers are doing. I was totally aware players were scoring that were in the squad – and of English players scoring who weren’t in the squad.
Callum Wilson
I have always been interested in entertaining, scoring goals, making things happen, doing things off the cuff, and Chris Coleman offered me that.
I could never hate Inter – make that clear to everybody. It’s impossible because they were my best years. I did everything for that club, scoring almost a goal a game, suffering, celebrating and experiencing emotions which I’d never felt anywhere else.
The most important thing is to be a midfielder first, not scoring goals. You have to make the game, make an assist for the team, and if you can score, it’s a plus for the team.
There’s a lot of things that go into scoring touchdowns and leading your team. It’s not just the game itself, but going back and studying tape to pick apart everything I did. It’s nice to have something to go on, doing it full speed in a game situation.
Obviously, when you do something with drama and comedy in it – and by that, I mean a scene that has drama and comedy in it – you know the minute you introduce music, you’re either scoring the drama or you’re scoring the comedy, and therefore the scene becomes either dramatic or comedic.
Here’s how much I know about hockey. Mike Royko and I were in a tiny bar one winter night, and the radio kept reporting goals by the Blackhawks. I mentioned how frequently the team was scoring. ‘You’re listening to the highlights,’ Royko observed.
I respect opinions, I don’t give opinions on them. I learnt to respect them. And I also have a very clear opinion on Rivaldo. He was a great player and the image that comes to me is of him controlling the ball on the chest and scoring in Barcelona. The most beautiful thing in this world. That’s my opinion.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who is scoring and who is not scoring. It’s about winning games.
I’m sorry to see Balotelli waste his talent the way he does, but I think he can keep people entertained by scoring goals.
Soccer helped especially with my footwork. When I played soccer, I was on offense scoring goals – I didn’t pass the ball so much so it probably didn’t help much with being a point guard.
I have been a midfielder who is a regular goalscorer and scoring 20 in a season was normal for me.
I know nothing will compare to that feeling of scoring hundreds in a big game.
I don’t think people know how much time and effort truly goes into the game and goes into simply just scoring a touchdown. So when you get that opportunity, you should be able to be free and be relaxed from all the pressure that went into scoring that touchdown and have fun.
I’ve often thought that my background in rock ‘n’ roll has gone to waste in film work. My background was that I was a rock ‘n’ roll drummer and I don’t think I used drums in my first ten years of film scoring.
I always like to assist more than scoring: it gives me another feeling; I cannot explain it.
The job of the offense is not to score points. The job of the defense is not to stop the other team from scoring points.
If done correctly, dynamic scoring will provide a more complete picture of Congress‘s actions. This is exactly the type of modeling the private sector uses, and advances in data collection and analysis create an opportunity for it to be employed accurately.
With a runner at second base with nobody out, you’re trying to punch somebody out. You understand when there are guys in scoring position; hitters like to be aggressive early.
Individual honors and scoring championships are great, but my No. 1 goal is to win the Stanley Cup.
Being a home-grown player, I achieved what I set out to do by playing and scoring for Barca. I consider I was a success.
I used to feel like not scoring runs is the worst thing in life but I started thinking: ‘No, at least I’m getting to go out on the field wearing the Indian jersey.’ Not many get to do that. I am lucky. Now, if I get runs or don’t get runs, I’m just going out there trying to enjoy my cricket.
I won the national award for the best music composer and also had the fortune of scoring music for songs penned by M. Karunanidhi for the movie ‘Pasakiligal.’
I think football must be attractive for fans, and that means scoring goals.
Having the ball means creating chances and scoring goals.
I almost want to ask the judges, ‘If you don’t count leg kicks, if you don’t count body kicks, why not?’ So if you don’t think they’re effective in the scoring criteria, they’re not effective striking, effective grappling, so how about I kick you in the body, I kick you in the leg, and you tell me how that feels?
I used to say I preferred midfield because I enjoy trying to make goals, and scoring is a buzz.
When you’re Scottish you’re brought up to play anywhere and it’s fine to play for one or two games but you need to play in your right position, especially on the back of scoring nine goals for Hull City.
I hope I can keep growing and scoring goals.
I love scoring for the fans, for the team, for myself. That’s not to say that I won’t pass if I see a teammate in a better scoring position. But I like to score.
Usually, I can get the job done with guys in scoring position.
I’ve been promoted, relegated, won big trophies, gone months without scoring, played for my country at World Cups, been bought, sold, loaned, and called ‘a freak.’
I think sharing your experiences with younger players is something that’s hugely valuable for your team, for your program. It kind of gives me a sense of self outside of just connecting your passes, scoring your goals – it’s being a part of the larger picture.
Bench scoring overall I think is overrated. The question is, do you have enough scoring?
I will never, ever take for granted scoring a hundred for Australia.
People ask me what it’s like scoring a goal. Well, think of the best thing that could happen to you and times it by 10.
Charlie Austin
Most players have a basic shot with which they do most of their scoring. Mine is the hook shot and I suppose you could call me an authority on that.
I just worry about playing well and helping Liverpool go as far as possible in the Premier League. If that is achieved by me scoring goals, even better.
Stats are important to me, especially the ones related to scoring. You’re going to miss fairways and greens out here, so how you play from the sand really matters.
Obama has been perhaps the most partisan President since Truman. He hasn’t learned to be civil – note his insulting speech to Paul Ryan, who did us the courtesy of scoring a budget. The president has to talk to Republicans when it comes to the debt ceiling. He has reached the debt ceiling before anyone expected.
I’m the Inter striker, and in football, if the strikers aren’t scoring, then they’re not helping.
For me, in the past, scoring has not always been the most important thing. My priorities have been to play well, to be important for the team. After that, I’ve always told myself that if I score, then that’s just okay.
I gave up at the right time, scoring a goal against Derby. I didn’t hear anybody shouting, ‘Please stop, you are getting too old.’ That’s a success. And I don’t want to come back for the sake of it.
I feel like I have built different aspects of my game, not just scoring goals.
Football is about scoring, and if you want to do that, you have to go forward.
As a No. 9, I have to be there to score goals, but that isn’t the only thing. I also participate in the build-up and help my team-mates, but, above all, it’s about scoring goals.
Why can you not enjoy scoring and celebrating a goal for your new team with your fans? They have travelled all that way; enjoy it – simple as that. Some players choose not to, and that’s fine, but it’s just who I am – celebrate scoring goals. It’s a great feeling.
If it’s playmaking, I’ll do that. If it’s scoring I’ll do that. I’m trying to figure out that balance.
I’d be lying if I say that not scoring a Test century was a burden on me.
A lot of people just think I’m a big man, but I’m a basketball player. I am able to do everything that a basketball player can do – from playmaking and scoring to just passing the ball and just being a leader and post presence.
Going into games, it’s not like I’m thinking about scoring or doing other things for me individually.
I used to love watching Match of the Day and the goals. I used to love seeing people scoring.
I’ve always been a guy to try to create contact; create scoring opportunities based off the free throw line and being aggressive in that way.
Football has been good to me. Everyone has their destiny, but you have to make use of the opportunities. I have spent 15 years at the top of my game. It makes me happy. I love the game. I love scoring goals. But I have always taken it seriously. It is not what the game gives you, it is what you give it.
Scoring a goal feels a bit like a liberating act. It is a mix of sensations that only strikers can feel in their own guts. We work for that, to score. It is like a commitment, an obligation we take with ourselves.
I have always been scoring goals, and now the quality of goals I am scoring is better.
If you’re not a scoring point guard, people don’t think of you as highly. They don’t think of you as the type that’s going to make an impact in college because you’re not trying to score 20 points a game. You’re more trying to get 10 assists.
As a child, I wanted to be an astronaut, then a fighter pilot, and then later, as I grew up, I was focused on scoring high marks so that I could do an MBA in marketing.
