The Gerrard goal against my team at the F.A cup final in 2006 was amazing and heart breaking. I was at the match sitting behind in the corner flag on the front of the top tier above where Knochesky scored. with just 4 minutes of injury time to go that happened. but i have alot of respect for Liverpool now despite that i feel so lucky to have been at that match which was hailed as the best F.A cup final for 50 years. I have particular respect for Gerrard beacause im a season ticket holder at West Ham and on the first day of the season 06-07 he wrote an article in the program thanking the West Ham fans who stayed to watch them lift the cup . That was a great match played in the right spirit but that didn't stop me from pretty much crying at the end. lol
Right, I'm bumping this up because of the ongoings in the footy desk. Instead of clustering up the footy desk with a mass amount of youtube videos, I figured it would be a good idea to bump this up so people can post there respective clubs favourite goals, instead of posting just the one in the footy desk. After all, that is what this topic is for. Credit goes to ET for the idea. The general idea of this topic applies, if you want to post any great goal, or any faourite goal of yours feel free. Perhaps your top five premiership goals?
And Seddo, feel free to post a thpousand pages of your faourite Liverpool goals if you need be!
I'll post a shortlist of mine later on, off to work soon and haven't the time to search them all out.
Fantastic thunderbolt, no bollocks, just a full on smash. Quality!
Stuart Pearce free kick
Amazing left footed free kick from all of 35 yards against Manchester United.
I went to the City ground to watch this game, the atmosphere was awesome. It was 2-2, an table toppers West Ham were on course to earn a point, up until Marlon King stepped up to the plate, nestling this sweet shot into the top corner in the dying seconds of the game.
Trevor Francis header in the 1979 European cup final
Fantastic occasion, one which my dad was lucky enough to witness.
There are also many goals I can remember and stay in my head as favourites that I cannot provide videos for. These include-
David Johnson's 30 yard screamer in the play-off semi final against Sheffield United. Really set the game up for a tense encounter, and had me going crazy. Was short lived though.
Darren Huckerby volley. I can't remember who this was against, but the volley was as crisp and sweet as you could get, right into the top corner. A game I watched on sky sports, was worth it.
John Robertson versus Derby County in 1977. Newly promoted Nottingham Forest played Derby in the league and absolutely annihilated them 3-0. It really shown how good Forest were, and definitely established them as league contenders, to which they lived up to. I can vividly remember the goal. Tony woodcock instrumentally chased down a lost ball from a long ball from Kenny Burns I think. He somehow (I really don't know how) beat Derby's left back to the ball, ran into the box, wrong footed a couple of players and managed to get a shot in which ricocheted off a Derby player to John Robertson's feet. He then manouvred the ball and poked in a wrong footed stab into the bottom right hand corner to make it 3-0. The momentum Forest possessed and the atmosphere that goal created was truly sublime. The commentator was astounded, as was I. Against Derby as well only makes it that bit more special.
Ian Woan free kick. Forest had a free kick on the left side of the 18 yard box. It was closer to the corer flag so everybody expected Ian Woan to whip the ball into the box. They were deceived. He majestically curled the ball around the two man wall, over the keeper's head and into the top left hand corner, to everybody's disbelief.
There are more, namely John Robertson's European cup final winner, and I'll more than likely update this as time progresses.
Although that Juninho goal was utterly World class, I've always rated this one that tad bit better, under the circumstances and the powere, accuracy and venom he created was mesmorising. I didn't believe it when I saw it.
