Perfect Hat-tricks


geezer

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised no-one has picked up on the fact that Anelka scored the 'perfect hat-trick' last week; left foot, header, right foot. I guess most of us remember JFH getting the perfect hat-trick against the spuds a few years back but does anyone recall any other Chelsea players achieving this feat?

None really that I can think of. SOmebody somewhere obviously decided that for the purposes of 'official records' all three goals must come from open play - having said that I am not sure whether direct free kicks count.

kerry dixon once against millwall must have been about 1990-1991...

Pretty sure he scored a perfect one v Leeds in the 5-0 promotion match in 1984. The first two were sublime - header from a Nevin dribble and cross, and a stunning right-footed chip from outside the box. The third was a volley from the edge of the box that I think was with his left.

Right up there with JFH's hattrick v Spuds for quality.

Did you know that officially a player can't claim a hat-trick in football if one of them is a penalty.

Really ? Odd that when a pen is given and a player is on 2 golas and he is not the normal penalty taker 9 times out of 10 he is handed the ball to complete the hattrick ?

strange rule

Here in Europe you only call it a hattrick if all the three goals are scored in the same half.

I would say ALL hat-tricks scored against Spuds are perfect. Though some are just a bit more perfect than others. :)

And the JFH one was the most perfect of all perfects. I was lucky enough to be seated in the East Middle for the match, it was the bollocks and I'm proud to say I was there.
