Just How Good Was Gareth Bale's Goal ?

Gareth Bale's near injury time winner at West Ham last week was as spectacular as it was dramatic. Surging runs and shots from distance are fast becoming his trademark and his Monday night goal contained both, but how does his effort match up with two similarly outrageous long range goals from last term. Using x,y data in this guest post I try to reduce the Welshman's goal down to figures and probabilities, but there is a video for those who just want to relive the goal.
