Ricky Villa in the 81 cup final. A dine goal but it was the commentator who said 'he's taking them all on' which overrates it for me.
That said, watching live as a 9 year old boy was as good as I'd seen at the time.

This won't be popular, but Beckham v Wimbledon. Pro footballer kicks football quite far in a straight line. It's a good goal and I do like how it hits the net without bouncing but it never ever made me go 'wow'.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
at least he scored unlike the Pele effort that went wide that is regarded as some kinda genius
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Haha yeah I agree. There's also the other famous Pele miss where he rounds the keeper without touching the ball but still puts it past the post. Never understood why those misses are so celebrated.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
exactly, that was against Uruguay I think.
Terribul miss brought about by a poor decision too let the ball roll across him instead of pushing it into the net in front of the gk.
Pele was all about gol volume, not flamboyant skill.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Pele wasnt flamboyant? Aha hahaha. Dear lord, you are way off. He loved a nutmeg and a rabona, and a step over and sticking it round one side of the player and going the other. He absolutely loved a trick.

I think goals like that, the context has to be accounted for. To do that in a cup final adds to it. Same with the Giggs goal.

Also Ronaldos overhead vs Juventus is the worst overhead I have ever seen.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Wow seriously? I suppose Zidane’s volley was also the worst volley you’ve ever seen?
----------------------------------------------------------------------
* looks at profile and recognised that it’s a Utd fan coming to defend his beloved

He literally miss-kicks it and scuffs it into the corner. I can easily name you 10 better overhead kicks in the PL alone.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It has nothing to do with being a United fan, many non united fans on this thread alone have agreed that it was an amazing goal. Not to mention you said it was the worst you have ever seen? Ludicrous comment

Miss kicks it and scuffs it into the corner? Am I looking at something completely different??

literally one non-Utd fan agreed. It’s just an acrobatic scuff

Yeah 100% though imo Giggs' goal would have still been a great one if it was a league game against Burnley

Wasn't just the occasion of the game being a semi final that elevated Giggs' goal though, I think it was also the fact it was just an amazing match from start to finish. Really end-to-end, Bergkamp having the chance to win it from the spot in the last minute, etc. It was a fitting climax to a superb game that had already had you on the edge of your seat for the whole night. It deserved that goal.

Yep. As a neutral (although not really) it was a fantastic game.

Yep can’t believe I forgot about this one, easily one of the most overrated PL goals along with Rooney’s vs West Ham and Petrov vs Derby. Rooney’s goal vs West Ham as an Everton player was better than all 3 but never gets talked about. Also I remember a Wigan player scored a ridiculous goal from a free kick in his own half which was better than them all too.

Ridiculous goal. For me what makes that so good is that the keeper had no chance even though it was such a long shot. Lots of the other half way line shots the keeper either stumbles or gets twisted and turned this is just an unbelievable BLAST

Ronaldo’s free-kick was a screamer but it’s not my favourite of his. I preferred the long-ranger at Porto for a start. The team goal on the break at Arsenal in the 09 CL semi is probably my personal favourite Ronaldo goal.

no man.

Pele was merly a tap-in merchant.

whenever he tried a skillz move, it aint never worked.

I'll assume you're just wumming. If not you are clueless
