Only a matter of hours after we claimed that Wayne Rooney had scored a goal-of-the-season contender, Charlie Adam made fools out of us and Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois with a glorious strike from his own half…

The wonderful vision and amazing technique of the epic hit has earned comparisons to David Beckham’s long-range effort against Wimbledon back in 1996, but if anything it was even further out. Sky Sports measured the strike at 59 yards (we assume they meant metres) from the Chelsea goal.
