Goal of the Season 2020-2021

by Snowball » 13 Sep 2020 17:56

Ejaria at Derby


I forgot the lovely footwork by Cabral in goal, the fantastic pass to Joao.

Then Joao’s excellent hold up play, that gorgeous back-heel and a superb shot by E-J into the far corner.

It’s going to be hard to score many better goals than that.

I'll start the top 20 and people can comment as they wish and we can move things around

1. Ejaria's Goal for 0-2 at Derby
2. Joao's great turn in the six yard box versus Colchester
3. Joao's sneaky near-post goal at Derby (training routine)
4. Joao's equalising header after an excellent Araruna cross (V Colchester)
5. Joao's cool goal after being put through by an excellent Olise ball.


Yes, I realise that many of these will be shifted aside as we get more goals.

I like this idea for a recurring thread. Can a mod please edit the title to include the season please?

. It's a good thread and a running one would be nice.

Maybe you should start a thread or even make an interesting post once in a while before you call others out

Just grow up a bit if you can, stop labelling fairly decent goals as "goal of the season".

Having the word "snow" in your username is apparently a good indication you wet the bed.

Yes they do. I bet if there was a poll about who on the board wants either me or you, I would win.

I already beat you in one poll and you didn't leave.

Like the idea of a ongoing thread for goal of the season contenders.

Although the goal yesterday was good, I’d say that Joao’s 3rd against Colchester was better. Brilliant bit of individual skill to turn the defender in tight space, then to smash it in.

To say we won’t see a better goal than Ovie’s this season, would be a pretty sad season for goals.

REALLY? As a team goal, with three/four /five excellent elements... (personally, I believe) itwill be hard to match.

I personally don't rate random 30-yard screamers. Some go in, most go wide or high

What I was going to suggest was to build a top twenty and move them up and down. So, right now ALL our goals would be in the top 5.

I thought Joao's first yesterday was very neat, too, especially when we discover it was a training ground "foul".

A team goal which involved 3 players? A long kick downfield, a very nice back-heel and a pretty standard finish.

Don’t think it’ll come top of the polls come the end of the season, but best of luck with the campaign for it.

Yeah good shout that snowball, Seth, Hendo

Saw that one described as a team goal on the club's Youtube channel... found that a bit odd seeing as it was a quick back to front from GK to striker, and only four players touch it in the clip.

Saying that, the run from Swift into the box is a crucial part in drawing defenders, Olise comes and shows well outside the box to forcing a midfielder to come to him rather than go over to Ovie, who ghosts in nicely to be completely unmarked.

Absolute brilliance from Joao to make the run, control the ball, deal with it when it holds up, see the big picture and then weight a perfect back-heel into Ejaria's path for a simple, if not necessarily easy, finish.

Hopefully we'll be adding to this on a regular basis. Joao's third against Colchester was pretty nice too.

yeah i agree with that. Not a team goal but some excellent play. I praised Rafael for his awareness at a tricky point in a match to pull that off. Certainly a contender but mostly for the emotion behind
It. We have rarely seen such potent attacking potential so it resonates well right now.

I'm referring to the overexagerated praise of the Ejaria goal, that was the premise of the thread originally and not to keep a running commentary of the goals of the season.

Snowball has lost it.
