I must admit , when he got in the box I was willing Shaw to take a shot and I suspect 99% of players would have done after that run

 

Proper team play though there from Liam

Some run that, then the quick feet on the touchline to get himself free when he looks like he's run himself into a corner is sublime, if it was done by someone for man utd, motd would be creaming themselves for weeks! Then the matureness/unselfishness/awareness to lay it off to Paterson to top it off. If he carries on like this, we've got some player on our hands!!

Was Patterson offside there? 

No he might have been in front of the last defender but it was not a forward pass from Liam Shaw.

It doesn't matter which way the pass goes, it's whether or not the player is behind the ball. Shaw could have played the ball forward, but Paterson still would have been onside.

Beautiful pass. And so important to have someone where goalscorer Paterson is that finishes the business. He might not be much in the rest of the match. But my oh my the value of a goal covers for a lot of that.

No, he was intelligent enough to watch the line, stay behind Shaw and the defenders, then time his run right. All intentional, deliberate. In the build up you see him check his run at one point to ensure he didn’t go offside. Paterson seems to get some stick for some reason but he’s a good player and an intelligent footballer.

Stick that clip and the Atdhe goal cutting in from the corner flag and it’s the two best bits of solo football leading to goals I’ve seen in quite a few years ...

Last minute, sets off length of field to corner flag dragging four men with him n then thinks "sod this let's just get another goal". 

 

That's why you need exuberance of youth in any good team.

I love it! As to the actual question in the thread title, yes. I think it is the best assist I’ve ever seen, certainly from a Wednesday player. 
Everything about it is beautiful and the fact that he left nothing for the striker to do other than stick his foot out was so cool it made me cry at the perfection of it!

This player, only a few weeks ago, showed his inexperience by getting sent off after a rash challenge. Now it’s three MoM performances on the trot! Ponder that for a few moments.  
Get in there Liam!

Great assist.
It reminded me of when we were all

midgets at Primary school and another team would have a comparative giant loping about who could just decide to win games with physical presence like Shaw did yesterday. He seemed to stop and just shrug off two oppos because he could. 

hope he stays fit - and that he stays with us!
