Best Goal In Soccer/Football In A Long Time?

Thu May 03, 2012 1:08 am

I'm a massive Chelsea fan, and this goal probably meant no Europe for us next year....

But I was just in awe at this goal today...

Now...I can't tell if Cisse miss-kicked this or if he meant to do it - but the result was phenomenal...

Certainly gives Roberto Carlos, David Beckham, and C. Ronaldo a run for their money.

What are some of your favorites?

Being a Chelsea fan, you should be able to appreciate my favorite goal of all time.

 Wow!
My gods, that was beautiful!

Messi's Puskas goal (that he didn't win) looked all too normal for him, but the more you watch it, the more it looks ridiculous

As a Man City fan I felt distinctly nervous seeing that. It was a superb goal though.

As a Newcastle fan, it was an awesome win after the sorry match against Wigan last weekend, but I'm nervous about this weekend's match with Man City.

Don't like their chances against Bayern? As a Newcastle fan, I have to pull for Bayern, as a Chelsea win would kill the automatic spot for the EPL 4th place finisher. I also have to root for whoever the Spurs are playing since the Magpies are slugging it out with them for 4th.

I think he sliced it. At the moment, everything he hits is going in. There is no doubt he is a good player, but I don't think it was his intention to put so much spin on the ball. Crouch's volley the other week and Suarez's 45 yarder were better goals in my opinion!

There are plenty of amazing goals. It's really difficult to choose, even a handful of them.

One that struck me when I was younger is from Francis Llacer when playing for PSG. And that was against my home team:

The one from Neymar, which won the last Puskas award is quite incredible too:

The goal of Messi in 2007 vs Getafe:

But then, let's not forget the one of Maradona:

The one goal that made me lose my voice after shouting of joy:

The one of Bergkamp vs Newcastle:

Look at the trajectory of that free kick from Roberto Carlos vs France in 1997:

There are plenty more.

Incredible goal. Never mind whether he did it on purpose or not, it's an amazing goal!

Giant Arsenal fan here, but this is one of my favorite goals. I've been an Essien fan on a personal level, and this goal to pull level was a dagger to my heart, but I was in awe of it. Not the brilliance of Cisse, though.

How about Jeremy Goss' goal, Norwich v Bayern Munich?

Have to be quick, at 5 seconds in. Slow motion replay at 40 secs.
