Goals of the Season 2006-2007

June 8 2007

It’s been a great year for long-range volleys, particularly those of a left-footed variety, but not such a great year for individual goals (with two obvious exceptions).

With an apology for an inevitable English football bias, I proudly present my goals of the season…

1. Matthew Taylor (for Portsmouth v Everton)
à Premiership

2. David Nugent (for Preston North End v Crystal Palace)
à FA Cup

3. Robin van Persie (for Arsenal v Charlton Athletic)
à Premiership

4. Paul Scholes (for Manchester United v Aston Villa)
à Premiership

5. Wayne Rooney (for Manchester United v Portsmouth)
à FA Cup

6. Francesco Totti (for Roma v Sampdoria)
Serie A

7. Lionel Messi (for Barcelona v Getafe)
à Copa del Rey

8. Diego (for Werder Bremen v Alemannia Aachen)
à Bundesliga

9. Christian Vieri (for Atalanta v Siena)
à Serie A

10. Thomas Hitzlsperger (for Stuttgart v Energie Cottbus)
à Bundesliga

Seething at an omission? Aghast at an inclusion? Let me know.

    James Mcfadden vs Charlton. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V-0tEM-SR0

    In stoppage time as well!

  2. Tom Williams Says:

    That is a very good call.

    The touch to set the volley up is absolutely sumptuous, and the finish is pretty tasty as well.

    Consider it Number 11.

  3. Sion Owain Says:

  4. Tom Williams Says:

    Messi’s for Barcelona – the one that was like Maradonas [sic] is at number seven, Sion.
