The golazo nature of Murphy's strike during the 2-0 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion has polarised fans. Should Stockdale have done better?

The triumph keeps Ipswich within fighting distance of the playoff zone but one of the main talking points from the game was Murphy's strike.
The goal was a result of a fast break, with Murphy capitalising on some questionable positioning from Brighton goalkeeper David Stockdale.
Ipswich Town posted a video of the goal on their official social media channels, terming it a "screamer!"
However, reaction was polarised over whether the goal actually warranted such a label.
The loss puts Brighton in 18th spot in the Championship table with just seven points returned from seven games.
Daryl Murphy still thinking he's Thierry Henry and I love it. #itfc— Chris Callegari (@Callegari93) September 17, 2014
As delighted as I was that he scored, Murphy's goal was poor goalkeeping. Not the cracker it's made out to be, but I will take it! #itfc— Graham Downes (@TractorGraham) September 17, 2014
Also kudos to Murphy for his strike. Stockdale did not do too much wrong, perfect example of wrong footing GK by hitting it early. #itfc— JH (@maddogwoof) September 17, 2014
