Stuart Pearce's left foot is the stuff of legends. The fans exuberant adulation of him on his return to the City Ground as manager is not just because of his commitment and passion for the club , not just because of his crunching tackles and fierce defending, not just because of his incredible energy up and down the line. It's those amazing goals scored with the rifle they called his left foot, often from free kicks. The 1991 Cup Final saw one of his best. From outside the box, he struck the ball so hard and so accurately into the top left hand corner that all the keeper could do was wave at it as it went by.
