Goal of the Year 2009, an excuse to watch some kickass Arsenal videos

No news today so, here are your goal of the year candidates, voting enabled at the end.

Adebayor v. Villareal

Eduardo v. Burnley

Robin van Persie v. Everton

Nasri v. Man U

Arshavin v. Liverpool — the second goal

Song v. Wigan


  1. Arshavin wins the header, plays it forward, then nips in to steal the ball off Arbeloa and merely hits a 35 yard cut shot through two defenders, into the side netting where no goalkeeper would ever save the ball.

    It’s a magical goal, really.

  2. I think at least 3 of Arshavin’s goals against Liverpool should get nominated. Was it the last one where he picks the near post top corner with the left foot, on the run?

  3. They were all beautiful goals. Song’s goal was pretty much beating down an already beaten team but the others were priceless. Dudu wins my vote only because it was thrilling to see him so composed. I worried he wouldn’t play again and I can’t think of a better comeback than that goal.

  4. RvP to lose wisdom teeth to improve fitness. I shall have my haircut next week, that should cure my athletes foot!

    Seriously, they are all great goals, made with style and flair, but which are the most important goals? Ades against Villareal maybe, Samirs against Mancs?

    Has anyone seen the names coming out of the woodwork as possible signings? Every team in the world has a possible Arsenal target. (There’s guy I’ve seen playing on one of the South Sea Islands, we could get for a handfull of shells ……….)

    Never mind Messi, Iniesta and co, still say how much for Puyol?


  5. Hey Dont Forget EDUARDO goal against burnley…it was a classic brazilian(he may be a croatian citizen & international) goal..and look how much quality he has in his arsenal…God gave Arsenal the true Footballer but he was injured in a bad manner..what difference he would have made had he been out there….

  6. No, I watch football.

    The Song goal is included as an inside joke. It’s nowhere near the same quality as the others, hell, Denilson had better goals than that.

    But you know, feel free to come in to a blog you know fuck all about and call the author a joke, cocksandwhich.

  7. Hey joe – if you disagree, then how about you do a blog post with YOUR top/best/favourite five goals from this last season? I’m sure we’d all be happy to come and comment on it.



    Anyway, Tim – didn’t Goal Machine Eboué grab a few this season? Come onnnnnnnnnn, man!
