Wayne Rooney Versus Manchester City – The Best Goal Ever? Bicycle Kicks That Might Just Change Your Mind

14 02 2011

Wayne Rooney’s goal against Manchester City was fantastic; there’s no denying that. For me (and probably most of you), it is the goal of the season so far and will most likely end up as goal of the season. But best goal of all time? Steady on. It’s not even the best bicycle kick of all time.

Step forward Mauro Bressan and Rivaldo.

First up is Bressan’s outrageous effort for Fiorentina against Barcelona in the Champions League (1999). The audacity to even attempt to score a bicycle kick from twenty-five yards is admirable enough but to actually pull it off is something else. This might just be the best bicycle kick ever scored and it will take something outstanding to beat it.

Rivaldo’s overhead kick was technically outstanding and it was made all the more special as it was scored in the 90th minute to clinch victory for Barcelona over Valencia. This strike also completed Rivaldo’s hat-trick and, most importantly, the winner ensured that Barcelona qualified for the following season’s Champions League. In terms of importance, perhaps Rivaldo’s effort was better than Bressan’s and Rooney’s. I’ll let you decide.

Honourable mention: Trevor Sinclair’s beauty for QPR.

Goal of the Week – Cheik Tioté vs Arsenal

7 02 2011

Cheik Tioté’s wonder-strike gets the nod from me as goal of the week. In a match widely regarded as the best ever in the Premier League, Tioté’s 87th minute equaliser after being 0-4 down at half-time makes it all the more special.

It’s worth keeping an eye out for Steve Harper joining the Newcastle team celebration. I get the feeling he’s not celebrated many goals before.

Goal of the Season Contender: (Matty Burrows) Glentoran 1-0 Portadown

18 11 2010

We can only imagine how much coverage this goal would have received if it was scored by Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. Nonetheless, great goals need to be celebrated and what’s more, this goal was scored in the 92nd minute! Better late than never.

Stoke 3 – Birmingham 2

10 11 2010

Highlights from another cracking game in the Premier League from the Britannia Stadium where Stoke entertained Birmingham.

Robert Huth put the Potters in the lead before Ricardo Fuller doubled their lead in the second half. Birmingham pulled one back courtesy of Keith Fahey’s first Premier League goal and Cameron Jerome equalised for the Blues just minutes later.

With Stoke stunned, Birmingham applied more pressure but it was Tony Pulis’ men who had the last laugh as Dean Whitehead provided the winner to give Stoke three vital points.
