Soccerclips.net.: Don't know if this has been posted before. Neat site with user-contributed video clips, including soccer-related commercials, not just matches. A bit of a mess but worthwhile content. What's your favorite clip or section from this site?

Wish I could say. They all appear to be Windows Media files. Damn, and I was hoping to find that Nike commerical from 2002 with the guy kicking the dog into the bus stop ;)

Shame it doesn't have a search engine, but I did manage to find one of my favourites: Roberto Carlos free kick (ZIP). France v Brazil, le Tournoi. I remember watching it live on TV as it happened, and me and my dad just sat there in silence, mouths open, amazed. The phone rang. It was my uncle, who is a huge football fan and was actually in Wembley when England won the world cup. "I've just seen the best goal ever scored by anyone. Ever," he said. "I know. So have I," I said. I just love the look of astonishment on Barthez's face, who must have thought it was going about 10 metres wide. And you can't see it on the clip, but there's a ball boy behind the goal already heading off in the wrong direction to fetch the ball. It's just spectacular. And oh yeah, the clip doesn't really do it justice.

this is a cool site, and I think I posted about it in a lockerroom thread a while ago. ronaldo7.soccerclips.net has premiership highlights, but has been down for a while.

whoops. I just realized that it's ronaldo7.footballclips.net. which is currently down.

I saw it a few weeks ago when Blues signed Pandiani and someone posted a link to his champions league goals, which are a bit special, as it happens. Damn good site. Plenty of hooly related clips too, if you like that kind of thing.
