Matt Taylor was one of those players who could score simply breathtaking goals in any season. After his amazing long-distance effort a season earlier at The Stadium of Light against Sunderland, he produced another sizzling strike from distance at home to Everton in December 2006.
In the 13th minute, the ball popped up to the midfielder from at least 45-yards away from goal. There’s no thought in Taylor’s mind. He went for goal and his spectacular attempt left Tim Howard completely stranded. It came in a period where he was scoring goals for fun as Portsmouth won the game 2-0.
