Monday morning sport: denied by the woodwork

One for the sports fans here: how often have you read/listened to a match report which mentioned that the only thing that prevented a goal was the woodwork?

The striker whose technically brilliant 30 yard volley swerves and dips, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance, only to hit the post and bounce clear.

Denied by the woodwork!

Or – from the goalkeeper’s point of view;

Saved by the post!

Think about it, though. Did the post move? Did the bar adjust its height – ever so slightly, at just the right time? Or is the problem that the otherwise technically brilliant volley just wasn’t accurate enough?

Have a nice Monday – and enjoy reading your match reports!
