    Bergkamp Vs Newcastle. The flick, turn and finish were all just so seamless. Only a genius like him could do it. Anyone can score a 30 yard rocket. This one took serios skill.

  2. Shane Saunders says:

    It has got to be that quality chip from Philipe Albert in the 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United. A perfect way to round off the day. Incredible stuff.

  3. James says:

    Di Canio for West Ham. Can’t remember who they were playing against but it was the flying volley outside of the boot!

  4. john rea says:

    Matt le Tissier against blackburn 1994. magic

  5. ed says:

    for me, its got to be Scholes V Villa in christmas 06, smashing in off the underneath of the bar….

  6. Dylan O'Neill Dylan says:

    Johan Elmander’s sublime individual effort against Wolves. It was a fantastic goal and although he isn’t known by many, his skill on the ball was just phenomenal.

  7. Ciara OReilly says:

    Le Tissier’s solo goal v Newcastle. Pure genius and savage skill.

    Rooneys volley against Newcastle a few seconds after giving out to the ref was up there as well, the power on that shot was unreal.

  8. Dermot says:

    For me it has to be Shaun Goater for Manchester City v Manchester United on 9/11/2002. It does it for me as much for the context as the skill involved. This was the last ever Manchester derby at Maine Road. City hadn’t beaten United for 13 years. Shaun Goater a true blue first took took the ball off Gary Neville, a red through and through, and then calmly slotted it past Barthez in the United goal from the tightest of angles. Schmeichel the City keeper but United legend could not hide his delight. 13 years of hurt for the Blues evaporated in an instant.

  9. John D says:

    I’m not an Arsenal fan, but for precision passing from deep; control, pace and quality of finishing strike, Robin Van Persie’s goal against Charlton in Sept 06 was breathtaking. Football at it’s sublime best. Gilberto to Hleb, out wide to Eboue, crossed and finished. Poetry.

  10. Declan Mc Carthy says:

    Paolo de Canio Volley for West Ham v Wimbledon in 2000. So many difficult techniques combined for a perfect finish. Sheer Class.

  11. Paul S says:

    Hate to say it but Beckhams shot from inside his own half in 1996 was the best i’ve seen.

  12. Irene D says:

    Matt Le Tissier’s goal scored against Newcastle, on October 23rd, 1993. Sublime control, coolness under defensive pressure and finished off with almost contemptuous ease by one of the game’s most talented ever footballers

  13. Will Egan says:

    My favourite goal was scored by Rooney for Man Utd vs Arsenal 1st Feb 2010. A sublime breakaway goal started and finished by Rooney showing not only skill but more desire that the arsenal men he ran by to get on the end of Nani’s pass.

  14. Tom says:

    Tony Yeboah’s 1996 goal for Leeds against Liverpool – not only because it was the best goal ever scored, but because I was there….classic….

  15. Amy says:

    Stan Collymore, Liverpool V Newcastle April 96, winning goal in the greatest Premier League game ever!

  16. Darren O'Mahony says:

    The best Premier league goal has to be Dalian Atkinson’s goal for Aston Villa against Wimbledon. He ran nearly the length of the pitch beating players even though he was a bit chubbie and chipped the keeper from outside the box and to top it all off Saunders jumped on his back with an umbrella to celebrate. Magic stuff.

  17. Tauren says:

    Bergkamp vs Leicester City

    Some nice little passing and movement – lovely pass into him, but the control, awareness and finish were sublime.

  18. Kevin Collins says:

    Michael Owen v City in Manchester derby. Best game I can recall, for goals, excitement end to end, and to finish like that 6 mins into injury time. Sublime. Giggs and Owen held their heads, brilliant pass from the former and finish from the latter, their experience and class showed through.

  19. Adam Frost says:

    Either one of Tony Yeboah’s rocket strikes when he was with Leeds… genius!
