This is a nice list of goals with skill and style but let's not forget the breathtaking exciting ones that made us spill a tray of drinks. Giggs V Arsenal would pop up again.

Giggs v Arsenal is already up on the list in "individual efforts".

Oh, and for future reference, just post up a link to the video, don't embed the video into the post. It makes it easier to open the thread.

Well, I can't take all the credit. It was a discussion in the shoutbox about it. I just made the thread.

And now I have a question. Should goals go in more than 1 category? For example, Rooney v Newcastle was a long range strike and a volley. Any opinions?

I was asking myself this too ... :confused:

One of my favourites was Eric Cantona 'v' Wimbledon I think it was ...

Where the ball was passed to him and he caught it on his right foot ...

As it came down he smashes it into the net from about 25 metres !!

I'll leave it up to you guys ok ;)

You make a nice job so far :)

yup - or that one...and after seeing those goals I can't help feeling that we're a bit biased. I rate Juninho's highly than Tarnat's tbh, because he's done it on regular basis against the best bk's in the world

I've updated the first post with everything up to this post. And I've also made a new category, best hattricks. Added Rivlado's and Messi's.

And I also had a hard time adding Juninho's because I watched a video of his free kicks last night, they were all good...

And red_devils4life, I said I couldn't take all the credit. :p
