The 28-year-old's dipping 20-yard volley doubled his side's lead at Plainmoor on Saturday as they ran out 3-1 winners over Torquay to remain at the top of the table.

And Constable, who is now just 12 short of the club's all time goalscoring record, says he has not scored a better goal for the club.

"I can't remember a cleaner strike than that," he told the Oxford Mail.

"There are a lot of times when the ball sits up like that and you think 'should I have a shot or not?', but I don't think I've hit a better one than that.

"I just needed to make sure I got the cleanest connection I could. I didn't want to see it go out for a throw."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
