Good thread and interesting to see the goal in its context with the pundit referring to England's 2-0 to 2-3 fiasco and exit - normally you just see Jarzinho's pass, Pele's weighted and delayed play on and of course the finish. Good start!

Yeah, Pele's lay off just makes it for me. So cool and composed, it's almost nonchalant!

Sexy football.

Not the nicest viewing for English footy fans but a wonderful goal obviously:

"The greatest soccer goal I've ever seen"

Yeah - one from the American league.

It often gets slagged off for not being very good, but in the '70s and early '80s some of the best players ever had spells there. Even bloody Pele.

"George Best of the San Jose Earthquakes scored this fantastic goal against the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers on July 22, 1981 at Spartan Stadium in San Jose. It's often called the greatest goal in NASL history."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8wGN5uDaVg

I just LOVE the way he beats a player, faints to go one way, and then drags the ball back the other with the outside of his boot. Watch it in slow motion at the end of the clip. He still had the skill even then.

A truly special one. The goal that defined the perfect 'modern attacking player'? I think so.

It's a beautiful goal that taps into the fearless inner child I think. Maradona looks so small, almost like a boy, just running fearlessly at the defenders with his chest puffed out. Too brilliant to be stopped, too fast to be caught, too skillful to even be successfully challenged.

It's a moment that captures the absolute essence of footballing genius - a boy running through the park like a superhero, completely free from doubt or hesitation.

I love it.

Sunday

A fullback, who a couple of weeks previously had scored with a thunderous drive against Man Utd. That goal got a lot of television exposure. This one no one really made a big deal of, maybe because it's against "lesser" opposition, but personally, I think it shows a finesse that you don't expect from a full back and is an even better goal.

Stephen Carr v Sunderland

Pure magic.

Incidentally, this is the last time Real won the CL - 2002!

Dammit Jose this was going to be my choice! It's an obvious one in a way, but very few goals are scored with that level of perfection in technique. It's just astonishing. And in the CL final too.

Great minds think alike, Adam :wink:

P.S you must be enjoyin' this season greatly. Rodgers is proving to be a really exciting coach.

Yeah man. Not been this happy in about 5 years with the way things are. Must say it's taken me a long time to come round to Rodgers but I can't fault him this season. I thought he was a tubby weirdo with a bottomless pit of shit motivational sayings but he's not really put a foot wrong all year. Every time there's been a weakness in this Liverpool team he's learnt from it and changed tactics and personnel. We look tremendous going forward. Terrible at the back in fairness but another transfer window should sort that. Really, really exciting times.

Always thought your lot would nab 4th but that's not going to happen now. Bet you're having the opposite season to me. I think you'll ultimately be alright under Moyes. He's a good manager. But exciting he ain't.

Liverpool have been truly superb to watch this season. Brilliant going forward and very jittery at the back. For a neutral that's a great combination. Think Rodgers has been superb. Obviously Suarez is one of, if not the, best players in the league but very very impressed with Sturridge too. Also surprised how Henderson has blossomed.

Be interesting to see how they get on in the run in because they host a few of the contenders and look better on the break.

Excellent choice! I often bring that up in football conversations and it often draws nothing more than blank looks. It's surprising how many people forget about it!

While we're on the subject of Lee Dixon - surely this one is just as good!

I was talking about it with a mate just this weekend as it goes! Talking about favourite own goals. Might throw one of them in this thread from time to time...

It was a bit of a toss up between the two, but having posted a delicate lob by a right back a couple of days back, I thought it only right to show that I wasn't totally Spurs biased and show that Arsenal had a right back that could do that too. :wink:

Wednesday

Youri Djorkaeff, Inter v Roma 1997

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-0QkAsL3Io

Massimo Moratti said he was going to have a statue made of Djorkaeff's body position as he struck the ball...I don't think he ever did though.
