BBC Match of the Day 10 goals of the season

May 26, 2009

As a football fan constantly following Premier League football, I hate this time of the season…the end of it! The 2008/2009 Barclays Premier League season has been really great and in my opinion the BBC boys have really shown in pundit world that they still have lots to offer. With Alan Hansen and Lee Dixon, MOTD and MOTD2 give great technical insight into the modern professional game and show you the subtle differences between the top 4 teams, the ‘middle segment’ division within the Prem and the relegation battle group of teams. In this season, it was the bottom bit that seemed to be so tight for so long.

However this site is all about the best goals – so here is the top 10 (courtesy of the wonderful Match of the Day) that you can vote for:

Goal 1: Ricardo Fuller Stoke City (v Aston Villa) 23/8/08 Great turn and sublime finish from a tight angle

Goal 2: Geovanni (Arsenal v) Hull City 27/9/08 comes inside on the left and then the number 10 cracks a 20 yard screamer

Goal 3 David Bentley (Arsenal v) Tottenham Hotspur 29/10/08 crazy volley from just outside the centre circle

Goal 4 Glen Johnson Portsmouth (v Hull City) 22/11/08 chest trap and then hits a strong left footed volley

Goal 5 Robin Van Persie Arsenal (v Liverpool) 21/12/08 Great ball from Fabregas controlled fantastically by Van Persie on his chest and then hits it on his less favoured right foot

Goal 6 Paul Konchesky West Ham Utd (v Fulham) 18/1/09 Blockbuster hit from about 30 yards, superb moment for the Fulham left back

Goal 7 Ryan Giggs (West Ham Utd v) Manchester United 8/2/09 Giggs cuts inside twice with two dummies and then scores a rare right footer

Goal 8 Carlton Cole (Wigan Atheletic v) West Ham Utd 4/3/09 Carlton Cole finishes a great team goal with a great 1 touch passing build up from Zola’s happy hammers

Goal 9 Fernando Torres Liverpool (v Blackburn Rovers) 11/4/09 Wonder goal from the Spanish striker. Great volley from a tight angle, Torres uses his strength and balance to hit the top far corner. My personal favourite.

Goal 10 Tuncay Middlesbrough v Aston Villa 16/5/09 As featured on best goals last week. Fantastically well executed bicycle kick.
