or against arsenal?
I prefer the placed curler rather than the lash it and hope it bobbles enough in the air to get past the keeper.
the one against Portsmouth last year was great because it went straight into the top corner, but to score he usually needs the goalkeeper to mess it up like Almunia did.
look at how fast it travels, how high he gets it over the wall, how fast it comes down.
BUT THE BALL IS GOING FAST AND LOOKS LIKE IT WEIGHS A TON BY THE END
because of the massive run up he takes and what must have been going through his head as he was preparing to leather it with all his might. He's also probably done that a hundred times before and ninety nine have been skied out of the stadium.
I can't believe this didn't make the cut: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq_bnrBl7PM
Mareval's one is unbelieveable.
Debele's is amazing too
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is mine though, pure fucking skill
or Gretar Steinnson, even if he didn't mean it.
at least half of those goals left me absolutely slack-jawed, but i'd probably have to go with Gourcuff, just because i've seen it a couple of times now and it fucks with my head every time.
special mentions to: Grafite (made it look so, so easy to get past each player and the cheeky little back-heel), Mareval (for obvious reasons) and Torres (insane skill).
or that German match where the guy skins everyone then backheels it into the net at about 2mph.
if the punt is scored by a defender who only scores every three seasons.
It's between Gourcouff, Grafite and Dembele for me. Honourable mentions to Cox and Eduardo. Mascara's goal was basically a hoof, the Nantes players strike was more impressive but still has an element of luck about it. The Torres goal was good but not exactly amazing and Ibrahimovic shouldn't have been anywhere near the top 12.
Gourcuff's is probably my favourite out of the ones there
