Was this the best ever goal ??

Having just watched the Man U V Portsmouth game I think I have seen the best technical goal I have ever seen...when Ronaldo took just an unbelievable free kick...

What do you think?

Probably not the best ever goal, but I can't think of a better free-kick. It was perfect.
I liked James shrug after at his defence - "What the hell was I suppsoed to do about it?"

Maradona's dribble from the halfway line is still the greatest goal ever.

What a fantastic free kick but not best ever ( as much as it hurts me to say it being a utd fan)

Re: Was this the best ever goal ??

It's nice to see the ball being hit hard and accurately by any player. So many goals seem to be scrabbled over the line. A good clear whack from distance is a sight to behold. I used to love watching the goals scored by Peter (hot shot) Lorimer for Leeds many moons ago.

And Hello Chris

A fantastic goal! It's difficult to say "the best" 'cause there are more fantastic goals that, at the time, we have say "the best".

I'm Portuguese (for those of you that don't know).

Re: Was this the best ever goal ??

I guess playing alot of football to a fair standard on saturdays non league, I can appreciate how difficult it was to manipulate that ball...the way that he did....

A mention for the carlos goal - that was sheer power and the ball swerved in flight confusing the keeper who thought it was going out and gave up on it - he could have saved it....

They clocked Ronaldo's at 47 mph which make it even more remarkable, he actually hit it like a golf shot where you punch it into the green - which is equally as hard.....If you look at the line it didn't jump - but you look side on and the angle the ball took, not sure even if they did jump they could have blocked it.....

Hello Gibbo by the way ....

Re: Was this the best ever goal ??

I just prefer an individual taking the ball in no mans land, beating defenders, working his way into the box and slotting the ball into the net, composed, skillful, and undefendable.

In modern day football, players get little or no time on the ball, and defenders are so good at their game that the mazy run is a rare thing indeed now. That's why it's so wonderful to see the likes of the Baggio goal I posted above. Giggs cored a similar sort of thing for United a few years back, I recall.

Free kicks are alright, but not a patch on a half pitch dribble


and I'm also gonna throw in a mention about Julian Dicks 99mph penalty against United a few years back. Skillful? Nope. Impressive? Very!

Don't be sorry, it was and remains sheer brilliance! I think football reached it's zenith in that World Cup - rivetting!
