I think that’s the sad part, that you consider how “well known” It is a measurement....... the reality TV generation- Morrissey May be a total whack job with some very dodgy political standings but he called it in the 80’s when he wrote “fame fame fatal fame, It can play hideous tricks on the brain”
Both goals are hugely important and iconic but Thomas goal is light years ahead of Agueros In terms of drama.
it was the final game of the season, i think the rest of the league had already finished, against their direct rivals for the title, Liverpool had only to not lose by 2 to win the league, Hillsbrough was still fresh in everyone’s minds, It was at Anfield on a Friday night live on TV in a time when the only game on TV was the cup final..
I can still remember watching It, i watched the game again a couple go weeks again on zoom with my friends in England and I guarantee that in 30 years time that no one is hunting down Manchester City v QPR and watching that game over again.
If Sky had been around in 89 then the Thomas goal would still be being played on Sky Sports News every time the title was mentioned.
