Mariner: You know that Twellman? Get rid of him. He’s useless.

I was at Gillette Stadium on Nov. 8, 2007 when Taylor Twellman scored a bicycle kick against the Chicago Fire in the Eastern Conference Championship. It was a cold, blustery day that thankfully produced an unforgettable moment—a moment you can now relive through a short documentary on MLSSoccer.com.

The eight-minute video posted on Tuesday recounts Twellman’s game-winning bicycle kick that sent the New England Revolution to their third MLS Cup Final in as many years. It’s an epic tale that all Revs fans will want to watch.

As much as I love the videography, it’s the talking heads that really steal the show. Take a look at some of the gems found in this video:

Twellman: “I never wanted to be known as the guy that couldn’t produce in big games.”

Paul Mariner: “I said, you know that Twellman? Get rid of him. He’s useless.”

Calen Carr: “Taylor was one of those guys that you couldn’t help but hate. I mean, he’s got that sort-of all-American, pretty boy look, but you had to respect his game.”
