Goal of the decade

Post by officer_dibble » Thu Dec 05, 2019 10:54 pm

Can only be Aaron Wilbraham I think?? Even the last day promotion the season before (Karacan, Wheater and Le Fondre) don’t get near.

Anyway what’s second then - I’ll give you a couple:

Chung-yong at Birmingham- if you had told me then how shit it was getting after that for the next 9 years I wouldn’t have believed you. https://youtu.be/CrVRXpPKZJM

Heskey v Blackburn - he felt like a massive panic signing and Blackburn had been all over us, he came on at half time looking very unfit and promptly equalised from an Eidur outside of the boot wonderball. https://youtu.be/Jm-jspQebf8

James Henry v Scunthorpe- 94th minute winner in a tight game against a promotion rival. Not the cleanest strike but more the timing in a tight game. Very enjoyable. https://youtu.be/tVIJuPf9WYA

I would have put Wheater's header vs Port Vale up there too.

In terms of importance then those suggested by Dibble are the ones that spring to mind.

The 'best' goals I can think of in terms of technique;

ALFs wonder strike at home to Fulham
Velas at home to Gillingham when Clough's neat back heel played him in.
Mark Davies finishing off a great team move in a 2-2 draw at home to Blackpool
Trotters long range effort at Sheffield Wednesday

Zat Knight scoring at Leeds was an enjoyable one as well.

My choice as well. 9 year ago now so just about squeezes into the decade.

We were 5th in the Premier League after that match. --->http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/footbal ... 221083.stm

For sheer quality you'd just have to include Elmander's solo against Wolves. Amazing.
For audacity, Ivan Campo's grasscutter against Spurs?

Very much not this decade. Neither was Campo's vs Spurs - IIRC.

Wilbraham has to be "biggest".

Elmander's the "best" for me, Jeff. (Though confession: it was at the other end and I was shouting "hit it you useless bastard" as he went through the moves).

Wheater at Port Vale just edged by Chungy at Birmingham for biggest I've seen live.

:lol: similar thing in the League Cup final in Cardiff. 2-0 down inside 10 mins, going to shit. SKD picks it up on the right wing, steps inside and spaffs a trundling shot at goal. Guy in front of us "F*ck off Davies you useless...YEEEEEEEEEES".
